If you find yourself using medical cannabis products for the first time, ask what an appropriate dose is, for reference, 10mg-20mg of THC is the recommended dose for edibles, tinctures, vape cartridges, inhalers, and other ingestible products.
These aren't the buds from the 60s - If you're unsure of your tolerance level, start with a low THC threshold. (5%-15% average THC content.) By starting with lower concentrations of THC, you can prevent potential side effects such as: elevated heart rate, mild hallucinogenic reactions, respiratory changes, ego-loss, and skewed perception of time.
REMEMBER: You can always take a larger dose if you aren't experiencing the desired effects.
Ingesting food or beverages that cause a spike in blood glucose levels can help usher THC from your system; lessening the intensity of highly concentrated medical products.
Know that you'll be okay.
If you find yourself in a state of panic, we recommend mindfulness meditation as an accessible method of care for patients who are encountering undesirable effects from their medication. Consult your budtender to discuss milder forms of treatment.
