Edibles are designed to be savored slowly and in small doses. While 10mg is considered a standard single service for adults, patients and consumers who are new to cannabis should start with 5mg to gauge their reaction. Start with the minimum dose and wait a full two hours before consuming another 5mg if you aren’t feeling any effects. Then give it another hour to ninety minutes to see how you feel.
Read labels closely and be clear on what constitutes a serving for a given edible so you understand how to consume by half if necessary. And remember to heed that golden rule!
