If you are new to cannabis, it is always a good idea to start off with a single serving. You can always have another serving but you cannot undo one. Tip: Edibles work more effectively when eaten with something a little fatty.
Everyone responds to cannabis very differently. That is doubly true for edibles. For some people who are experienced cannabis consumers, edibles will still affect them very strongly, others have reported taking a larger dosage and feeling nothing. It is very dependent on your digestive system and other factors. Consuming flower is more consistent in how it affects people. You typically feel the effects within 1 to 15 minutes. With edibles the effects can be delayed up to two hours. We always recommend that you take it very slow. You can always take another puff or eat another serving, but you cannot undo one.
Sometimes people are known to respond differently to sugar based and fat-based edibles. A lot of customers report a sugar-based edible like a fruit chew can be good for mood elevation, instead of a fat-based edible like chocolate. Sugar-based edibles can sometimes take effect faster. However, if you are a concerned about the THC, try a 1:1 CBD to THC chew, as they tend to be less strong. In either case, make sure to start off with one serving the first time and wait a full 2 hours before having more to see how they affect you.
