It is recommended that you use your cannabis in a private and relaxed setting. It’s against California law to consume cannabis in any public place and against Federal law to consume on Federal land or facilities. If staying in a hotel or rental property, check management regulations.
You should be well-hydrated, well-rested, and well-nourished. Other than that, you’re good to go!
It’s worth knowing how long each product lasts.
Edibles: Generally 6 to 8 hours, depending on the serving size and individual’s metabolism.
Flowers: Generally varies between 2 to 4 hours.
Edibles: Onset varies from person to person. It could take as little as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours.
Flowers: Plan for 5-10 minutes until onset.
For edibles, it’s good to know the total mgs per “piece”. Often times, and because of the slower onset, some eat more than needed, thinking that it hasn’t kicked in yet. Be patient, know your limits, and the experience will come.
For smoking, know the number of draws you want to start with. It’s always best to start small and take your time.
If you’ve taken the proper measures, this will be an experience that will heal and revitalize. By establishing a personal baseline, you provide yourself with the opportunity to experiment safely moving forward. It is recommended first-time users start at:
- For edibles, take no more than 10 mg. If you think you’ll be sensitive, start with 5 mg.
- For flowers, take no more than 1-2 draws. You can always build-up from there down the road.
- “One and Done”: Let your serving size run its course. Don’t try to amplify the high immediately by doing more.
The most frequent cause of over-serving oneself is taking an additional serving and/or mixing with alcohol. The effects, especially with edibles, are subtle at the onset. With edibles, establish a moderate baseline serving for yourself before increasing your serving size.
