To avoid overconsumption, it is essential to "know your dose". The best advice here can be summarized by the following phrase, "Go low and slow". This will allow you to gradually build confidence in using cannabis and help to mitigate any unwanted side effects. (Please note we are not doctors, this information is for educational purposes):
1 - 5mg: New cannabis consumers and those looking to microdose.
5 - 15mg: Occasional cannabis consumers (A few times per month).
15 - 25mg: Regular cannabis consumers (A few times per week).
25 +mg: Heavy cannabis consumers (Daily).
*These dosage ranges loosely apply to sublingual administration as well. Consumers will want to dial their initial dose back the first time to adjust for increased absorption.
There are a few things to consider that may alter your cannabis experience:
- THC has biphasic properties, which means at one dose it might have one effect (relieves stress) but one larger can cause the opposite (increased feelings of stress).
- Taking edibles on an empty stomach can cause your dose to be absorbed faster with a more intense onset. A meal rich in fat can cause you to absorb more THC than usual.
- If you take your regular dose outside of your normal routine, it can cause a completely different experience.
- If you ever become uncomfortable from overconsumption try laying down, closing your eyes, and take deep slow breaths. You can also try watching a funny or comforting movie.
- If you feel like you are experiencing trouble breathing or heart-related problems, you should seek medical attention.
