Your first brush with edibles can be exciting, but consumption of edibles should be done with care. Many first-time edible users make the same mistakes when they start, and these mistakes can taint your future experiences with edibles. To avoid these mistakes, read our tips on how to use marijuana edibles in a fun and safe way.
Tips for First-Time Edible Users
Whether you’re using solid edibles, liquid edibles, or tablets, start with one dose, which is around 10 MG. Make sure you take your edible in a place where you’ll be safe; some may experience an edible high for at least four to six hours. Avoid pairing edibles with alcohol during your high, as it may give you the spins. Instead, stick with water to keep yourself hydrated, and avoid driving.
Now for a fun tip: THC, the part of cannabis that gets you high, is fat-soluble. That means if you pair an edible with a fatty food item, like pizza or cake, the fat will bond with the THC in your system and amplify your high. So while alcohol is off the table, feel free to eat all the pizza you want alongside your marijuana edibles!
One of the most common mistakes when taking edibles stems from impatience. After you take your edible, you won’t feel the effects right away, or even after a few minutes; at this point, first-time users of marijuana edibles usually make the mistake of taking another one right away. However, it’s important to remember that some people won’t feel the effects of edibles until two hours after consumption, so patience is key. After taking an edible, first-time users should wait at least an hour to an hour and a half before taking another.
