We’re here to tell them that over doing isn’t fun when the room is morphing, spinning, and flying down the anxiety tunnel.
So, what dosages should you have?
There is an ideal edibles dose depending on a lot of things. This can include tolerance, individual body chemistry, and the experience you’re looking for!
So, there are some basics to understand to find the exact dose you can handle. These dosages are measured in milligrams.
1 – 2.5mg THC
If you’re brand new to the cannabis world start with this dosage. It’s always wise to micro-dose before going for amount. At this level you can except the effects to be mild and perfect for symptoms like pain, stress, and anxiety.
2.5 – 15mg THC
Once you’re ready to up the dosage for persistent symptoms that weren’t addressed by micro-doses then this is the next step. Expect stronger pain and anxiety relief, also with some euphoria and impaired coordination.
30 – 50mg THC
At this level you’re going to experience strong euphoric effects and your vision will be impaired along with coordination. If you’re taking this level of THC you’re a high tolerance THC consumer, or consumers whose gastrointestinal tract doesn’t absorb cannabinoids well.
Then for those looking for a religious experience…
50 – 100mg THC
Yes, now we’re getting very high. This dosage level is only for experienced THC consumers. Or patients living with inflammatory disorders, cancer, and other serious conditions.
You will be seriously impaired in regards to coordination and perception. Some might experience nausea or increased heart rate.
