For instance, the active components of marijuana can cause blood vessels to relax soon after inhaling the smoke, which leads to a blood pressure drop and the possibility of passing out. Marijuana edibles take longer to work, so give your body time to adjust; but be careful: because edibles and drinks take so long to have an effect, there is a tendency for inexperienced users to eat too much and have an unpleasant experience when it kicks in.
- Go slow and low (on dosage): Just because buying marijuana-infused edibles is now legal in some states does not mean you can ignore your own limit. The trick lies in going slow and low on the dosage. Start with 10 milligrams of THC and wait for at least 2 hours before you consume more.
- Don’t mix with alcohol: Some enjoy the feeling of being “twisted”: high on marijuana and a bit tipsy with alcohol. However, it can be a very unsettling experience for new users. If you aren’t completely sure how you react to marijuana, never mix it with other drugs, including alcohol.
- Do not drive under the influence of marijuana: Want to hear a joke? A drunk driver runs a stop sign; a stoned driver stops and waits for it to turn green. You know what’s not a joke? Driving under the influence of any mind-altering substance. It’s stupid, dangerous, illegal, and puts other people at risk. Don’t do it, and make plans accordingly.
- Keep un-medicated snacks nearby: A good weed high always come with the infamous munchies; but the last thing you want to do is unthinkingly eat the whole bag of weed-buttered popcorn. Make sure you have a variety of regular, marijuana-free snacks around when the munchies hit.
- Stay at home and enjoy: Marijuana has a sedative effect, so it’s not the best drug for going out and partying. Instead, stay at home or with your friends where you would feel safe crashing for the night. If it’s your first time, make sure you are with people you trust.
- Label homemade edibles: If you plan to buy some dank nugs and make your own edibles at home, make sure that you store and label them properly. It’s not just a waste when the wrong person gets into unlabelled weed edibles; you also have lots of explaining to do.
- Keep edibles fresh: THC compounds are typically very stable, which is why it’s possible to make edibles in the first place. Nevertheless, they are lipids and all lipids go rancid when exposed to air and light for too long. KnowBagz offers a great solution to keeping weed and edibles fresh while ensuring easy weighing.
