A Guide to Edibles, Drinks, and the Optimal THC and CBD Dosages
How Much is the Right Amount of THC for You?
With so many different cannabis products on the market â€“ each with its own potency and format â€“ shopping for your perfect product can feel intimidating. Whether you’re new to cannabis or high-ly experienced, this guide provides an overview of CBD and THC dosage, as well as some helpful suggestions for proper dosing.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the compound in cannabis that produces the psychoactive effects commonly associated with the plant. If you’re new to cannabis, it’s a good idea to start with a low THC dosage and gradually increase until you achieve the desired effects.
If consuming a THC edible (more on those later), it’s best to wait at least two hours to feel the effects before consuming more, and effects may last for several hours.
With cannabis-infused drinks like Cann, effects are felt quickly â€“ after just 10-15 minutes â€“ which makes it faster and easier to find your ideal dosage. A general guideline for beginners is to start with 2mg THC to 5mg THC. For experienced users, the optimal THC dosage can range from 5mg THC to 10mg THC, to as high as 20mg to 50mg (or more).
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. In general, CBD on its own doesn’t produce notable effects that the user physically feels. However, CBD is believed to increase the effectiveness of other cannabinoids â€“ like THC â€“ when consumed together, as well as reportedly promoting feelings of calmness and focus. The optimal CBD dosage varies depending on the individual, but a general guideline is to start with a low dosage, such as 4mg to 10mg, and gradually increase until you achieve the desired effects.
Dosage for Edibles
Another increasingly popular way to consume cannabis is with edibles or foods that are infused with cannabis extract. Because the effects of edibles can take longer to kick in than other forms of cannabis (like drinking Cann), it’s important to start with a low dosage and wait to see how you react before consuming more. The recommended dosage for edibles varies depending on the person and the product, but a general rule of thumb is to start with 2mg THC to 5mg THC, and wait at least two hours before consuming more.
Find Your Cruising Altitude With Cann
If you’re looking for a low-dose cannabis product that’s refreshing, all-natural, and provides a buildable buzz, Cann is the perfect choice. Cann is a cannabis-infused drink that contains 2mg of THC and 4mg CBD per can. (Cann Hi Boys, with 5mg THC, are available in select areas.) Because Cann is a liquid, effects are felt quickly and taper off predictably. And unlike traditional boozy social drinks, it won’t leave you with a hangover the next day.
