01 Apr How Much Marijuana Is Right For Me?
Many new users do not have the experience to understand how much marijuana is needed to achieve a great high. They can often be put off after their first time of ingesting too much and feeling uncomfortable.
Each human body is different and metabolizes drugs in varying ways. Like alcohol, there are multiple factors to consider prior to ingesting such as metabolism, mental state and food intake.
Metabolism plays the largest role in edible marijuana, which can be difficult to titrate. Edible marijuana from a dispensary will be labeled with dosing information.
A dose of edible marijuana is usually considered 10 mg. Do a little math when you receive your chocolate bar or cookie and find out how much is in the product and what 10 mg would be.
It is important to note that edibles can take up to 3 hours to activate (depending on metabolism) and more should not be consumed until the effects have started. The key with edibles is to remember that you can always take more, but you can’t take less.
Smoking or vaping marijuana provides results that are nearly instantaneous. Most medical marijuana users report 3-4 hits achieves a satisfactory high, but that is dependent on the percent of THC in their buds or wax/oil and their experience.
Read your numbers. Some wax or oil can be as high as 90 percent THC and get you high in one hit. Listen to your body before taking another.
Tinctures are one of the easiest to titrate due to the dropper bottle they’re provided in. Users of marijuana tinctures suggest 3-4 drops under the tongue. Tinctures are concentrated marijuana and since they are not smoked, it can take up to 15 minutes to feel the results.
