4 Keys To A Fun And Safe Cannabis Edible Experience

Green Kong has all the tips and tricks you need to enjoy cannabis edibles safely. Read on to discover the four keys to a fun and safe experience with cannabis edibles!

1.Select the best product for your experience.

Selecting your product is such an important part of your edible experience. As with any cannabis product, the strain you choose has an enormous impact on your experience.

Some cannabis edibles are specific with the strains they use while other cannabis edibles are infused with THC but do not indicate the source strain.

Luckily, many cannabis edibles are made with certain experiences in mind.

Ranging from calming to energizing, different edibles can help you achieve your goal. Some folks use edibles for getting creative and others for relaxing before bedtime.

Moreover, edibles are great for microdosing. If you’re interested in learning more about microdosing check out our microdosing 101!

2. Start low and go slow.

Finding the right dose with edibles is crucial to your experience. Always start with a low dose and go slow when adjusting your dose.

Edibles tend to take up to one to two hours to take full effect. 

Because of this wait time, some folks will up their dose before the first dose has even taken effect. This can result in taking too much and having an unpleasant experience.

It is also important to remember that edibles often last longer than other forms of cannabis consumption.

For these reasons, always start with a lower dose and only begin to  increase your dose after a minimum of one hour. When increasing your dose, use small increments of .5-1mg.

3. Consider your environment.

Always consider your environment when trying new cannabis products for the first time.

This is especially true when it comes to cannabis edibles.

Because cannabis edibles sometimes come on fast and strong, you can be taken aback by the experience.

Controlling your environment is a great way to control your experience (or at least contribute positively to your experience). Trying cannabis edibles in a safe and comfortable space will help you experience your cannabis edible positively.

Feeling safe during your experience is the best way to experience a fun and pleasurable trip.

4. Shop smart.

Shopping smart isn’t just about getting the best price on the market. When it comes to cannabis products, shopping smart means buying reputable products from reputable sources.

Unfortunately, there are many unsafe products sold by disreputable sources. Always shop with a licensed dispensary (like Green Kong!) so that you are guaranteed the highest quality goods.

Lower quality products available from unlicensed markets often include dangerous and unhealthy additives.

Purchasing less reputable products (or even homemade cannabis edibles) can also be dangerous in terms of dosing. These products often have irregular amounts of THC in their product which can lead to overdosing on your cannabis edible.

In contrast, licensed cannabis edibles are specific with their dosing practices which allows for safe consumption of regular doses. 

Additionally, reputable sources like Green Kong always list all ingredients in the cannabis edible.

Since many edibles are baked goods and candies, it’s important to treat these items as food products as well as cannabis products. That means alerting our customers to the presence of nuts, dairy, and other allergens!

Have Fun With Your Cannabis Edibles!
