Proper Edible Dosage
Edibles have a long history of being a popular way to consume marijuana. They come in many forms from cookies and brownies to lollipops and gummies. They are a practical way to take medication and also are a bit of fun! But many times, patients stay away from edibles not knowing what dosage to use. Here are some tips and tricks to remember when utilizing edibles!
How do I know the proper dosage?
Edibles take around 45 minutes to an hour to take effect and last longer as they process through your digestive tract. It is important to wait for the effects of edibles to kick in. Do not over consume any edible products. You can have unwanted side effects so pay careful attention to how much THC is in each dose. Edibles typically have 10 mg of THC per dose. This high level of THC makes edibles great for patients with chronic pain, muscle spasms, inflammation, insomnia, and nausea. Below is a chart that you can refer to so you can make sure you’re taking the right amount!
