How do you avoid negative reactions to edibles?

Edibles are products that contain cannabis THC. They can also contain CBD, CBN, CBG, THCV, and so on. Cannabis can be infused in cookies, brownies, gummies, salad dressing, broths, chocolates, lollipops, and many other foods as well as drinks.  People that do not smoke turn to edibles to get the desired effect they are looking for.

If you are one of the many people that decide to have an edible there are some things, you may want to know about them. When eating an edible, you do not want to consume too much. Yes, they do taste good, and it makes you want to eat more but the more you eat the more effects you’re going to have. To prevent yourself from having a negative experience with edibles here are some things you may want to try. When you start off, you want to start slow. This means starting off with a small amount. If you have never had an edible, you don’t want to start off with a 100mg gummy. Instead, you would want to start off with a lower mg such as a 10mg.  Starting off small will help you to get to the desired effect you are looking for. If you want to feel the effects quicker, you can eat it on an empty stomach. If you’re wanting to slow the process of feeling it so quickly then I would suggest eating something like a meal before consuming it. With any edible you are not going to feel it right away. It takes time due to going through your digestive system. Any edible can take 30 minutes to an hour or so for you to feel the effects. Give your edible time to work and if the effect your feeling is not where you want to be then eat a little more. Edibles can last for up to 6 hours so you may want to chill at home and listen to music or binge watch something on the television. When you eat an edible you do not want to drive but if your out with friends let them drive. If your not satisfied with the edible you try you can always try different strains. What works for one may not work for you. You may also want to switch up from time to time from indica to sativa to hybrid. Trying different strains gives you the chance to see what works best for you as well as not getting burned out on the same thing all the time. If you find that you have eaten to much of an edible and do no like the effect of it you can eat something if you haven’t already. You may also want to drink some water to hydrate your body, take a shower, exercise, chill with music or simply go to bed.

Not everyone has the same experience when it comes to edibles. What works for you may not work for the next person. Some people have a high tolerance to edibles and may need more to get them to where they want to be. If you are just starting off I recommend you starting off slow and with a low dose.  Its better to start off with to little and work you way up than to ingest to much at one time and have a bad experience.  There are different flavors and strains for you to explore so you can get the one that works best for you.
