Unless you had a friendly weed connoisseur holding your hand through your first edible experience, you probably met your maker when you decided to get edible-SMACKED. You could have made a great first batch but you got too overzealous with portions, or ended up tripping embarrassingly hard and couldn’t figure out how to sober up. Here are 7 mistakes we’ve all made when trying MARIJUANA edibles and ways you can avoid having a negative edible experience.
1. EATING TOO MUCH
This is especially true for veteran smokers who don’t realize that edibles are an entirely different game. Remember, edibles take much longer to kick in. Be patient & stick to the recommended dosage.
2. NOT KNOWING YOUR EDIBLE’S POTENCY
Building off the last point, if you’re buying your edibles, be sure to read the label and consume accordingly. If you’re making your own, know how much you’re putting into your edibles.
3.NOT KNOWING WHAT TO EXPECT
Different methods of consuming lead to very different effects. When it comes to edibles, it usually results in more intense, body highs. Know what to expect so you’re not caught off guard.
4. NOT KNOWING HOW TO SOBER UP
5. NOT HAVING MUNCHIES ON HAND
There’s nothing worse than getting the munchies after consuming edibles & eating more edibles. If you know you’re going to be craving food while high, have some non-medicated munchies ready.
6. FORGETTING TO DECARBOXYLATE
7. MAKING SMALL BATCHES
It might seem better to make small batches so you can try out your edibles, but it’s much easier to control dosage & know what to expect when you make large batches, since they’re more consistent.
