1. When consuming edibles, how many milligrams are in one dose?
Between ten and fifteen milligrams is a typical dose. Depending on tolerance as well as other factors a person may need 2 or more doses but it is wise to always start with only one dose You can always have more after that. We recommend waiting a full hour before re-dosing. Different edibles are absorbed through different bodily systems and therefor there is a range of time for how long it will take to ‘kick in’.
2. Will ingesting cannabis infused edibles affect me differently than smoking?
YES! How an edible will affect a person depends on a number of variables ranging from a person’s edible tolerance, to the type of edible, to how much a person has eaten and even how hydrated a person is.
3. How long does an edible high last?
Depending on dosage, tolerance and a number of variables an edible high can last anywhere from 3 to 10 or more hours.
4. What happens if I eat too much of an edible or start feeling sick?
It is possible to eat too much of an edible, if this happens we recommend drinking orange juice, soda or any drink high in sugar or caffeine. This can lessen the effect of the medicine. Remember to hydrate and stay calm. There is rarely a need to seek emergency medical help as all they will most likely do is give fluids and have you rest.
5. Can I smoke after I eat an edible?
It’s best to let the edible take effect before consuming other forms of cannabis but smoking in moderation while under the influence of edibles is not necessarily dangerous.
6. How long after I eat an edible will I feel the effects and how long after a first dose should I wait to consider ingesting more?
We recommend waiting a full hour before re-dosing. Different edibles are absorbed through different bodily systems and therefor there is a range of time for how long it will take to ‘kick in’. Digested edibles must be processed by the liver before the effect is felt. People with faster metabolisms will tend to feel the effects faster than those with slower metabolisms.
7. With edibles, should I medicate on a full or empty stomach?
We recommend eating a snack or small meal one to two hours before consuming edibles. Medicating on an empty stomach can lead to nausea and medicating on a totally full stomach can cause your body to not absorb the medicine and instead just let it pass through.
8. Will refrigeration or freezing an edible lessen the potency?
Refrigeration or freezing will not change the THC or CBD levels in edibles. This is a good method to store edibles for a couple weeks or even a month or two.
9. Are butter or hash infused edibles stronger?
Neither is necessarily stronger. The dosage information is the important part in figuring out potency.
10. Will sugar-free or gluten-free edibles be less potent?
No. The dosage will be the same regardless of sugar or gluten free.
11. Are edibles the most effective way among cannabis medicines to kill cancer cells?
No. Edibles often contain sugar, gluten and other ingredients that can promote cancer cell growth. The most effective medicine is typically concentrates such as full melts. We recommend consulting your physician to determine what the most effective method is for your specific condition.
