Tolerance for THC infused edibles doesn’t often translate from smoking to ingesting. A high smoking tolerance doesn’t equal a high tolerance for edibles.
Body mass, age, metabolism, gender and body chemistry all influence the effect of THC in edibles. THC’s relationship with fatty cells, regardless of how much you smoke, is unpredictable for a beginner.
Treat (edibles) like you would painkillers — like Vicodin or Percocet. Never eat THC infused edibles on an empty stomach, remembering to always “take with food”.
10 to 20 milligrams of THC is considered to be a unit or medical dose. When you’re dosing out an edible, calculate the amount of activated THC in each piece or square. If the 100-milligram chocolate bar splits into 10 pieces, each one is roughly 10 milligrams apiece. Dose accordingly.
Some people have different reactions or experiences with infused edibles. Try different types and find an edible you enjoy. Learn how your body reacts and how you react psychologically to different edibles. Do your research.
For casual users, 10-20 milligrams of THC in an edible should be more than enough. Ten milligrams is the recommended serving size and a good place to start. So start slow, and wait 45 minutes to see how you feel. You can always take more — but you can’t take less. Each edible is different, and marijuana infused products can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to take effect. Take your time, don’t overindulge.
As a precaution, don’t plan to drive or use heavy machinery. An edible will provide a very different and more embellished high. The intensity you feel from eating marijuana infused edibles is because of the way the body processes marijuana. Ingesting typically produces a much stronger and longer-lasting effect. If you think your pot-smoking tolerance has prepped you for higher-milligram usage in edibles, think again.
Consuming too much marijuana in one sitting can be a very unpleasant experience and can happen with any type of edible. A temporary overdose of marijuana is called “greening out”. An edible high will last longer than almost every other high. If you have consumed too much, stay calm and remember that the feeling is only temporary. Lay or sit down, close your eyes, and try to relax. If you are with other people, let them know that you have overdone it and want them to keep an eye on you. If your discomfort becomes so intense that you think you need medical attention, ask someone to take you to the emergency room or call 9-1-1. Do NOT try to drive anywhere. Alternatively, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a known tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) inhibitor, which means that a dose of CBD will take the edge off and return balance to your high by decreasing THC levels in the body. If you have access to CBD, use it. It will lessen the effects of a THC overdose.
