When it comes to choosing your method of medical marijuana, you will want to choose the option that works the best for you and helps with whatever you need. If you prefer edibles, it is important that you understand the dosage so that you can find the perfect amount to ingest. Edibles are one of the easiest ways that you can experience unwanted effects so you’ll want to be sure that you are taking the proper amount. Whether you’re cooking your own or purchasing pre-dosed edibles, we’ve put together a guide that will help you navigate your dosing options.

Start Small

If you are first trying out edibles, you don’t want to start with the highest dosage. You’ll want to start with the smallest dosages and then work your way up as needed. If you start with a higher dosage, you don’t know what the effects will be and you can easily experience overconsumptions symptoms that may turn you off from edibles completely. You’ll want to start with a small dosage and in 8 to 24 hour increments so that you don’t overdo it and can allow yourself to gradually feel the effects. Every marijuana user experiences the effects differently and when you start small, you can find that perfect amount of edible that will produce the desired feeling.

1 – 2.5 mg Edibles

This is the range that first time consumers and microdosers will want to stay within. This amount may not produce the euphoric, high feeling that is often associated with marijuana but you will still feel the effects. This dosage aids with mild pain relief and anxiety and can also help improve your focus and allow you to accomplish tasks.

2.5 – 15 mg Edibles

With the 2.5-15 mg doses, this is where you’ll start to feel the euphoric feeling that is typically associated with marijuana usage. You will also experience stronger symptom relief for pain but this dosage may impair your coordination and alter your perception. If you’re upping your dosage, this range will work best for patients with persistent problems and those that are restless when they’re trying to sleep.

15 – 30 mg Edibles

This is the range that starts to impair new marijuana users and produce the unwanted effects. The strong euphoria will be enjoyable at first but it can quickly turn negative and result in feelings of paranoia and anxiety, dry mouth, hungriness, lethargy, and impaired memory. This dose range is recommended for those that are experienced and have developed higher tolerances.

30 – 50 mg Edibles

If you are a seasoned cannabis user or if your GI system doesn’t absorb cannabinoids well, this dosage may be right for you. You should only try this range if you have experience with edibles and if your tolerance is high. Like the 15-30 mg range, it will produce extremely euphoric effects but can have severe overconsumption effects.

50 – 100 mg Edibles

This dosage is meant only for experienced cannabis users. This range may seriously impair the user and cause unpleasant side effects. You may only want to look into this range if you are dealing with cancer, inflammatory disorders, or other conditions that require higher dosages. This is typically the highest dosage range.

When stepping into the edible side of medical marijuana, it is important to keep in mind that they will affect everyone differently and that starting with small doses is the best way get started. While edibles effect everyone differently, this guide will help you get started in the world of edibles and allow you to expand your consumption methods beyond smoking.
