To start off with edibles, it’s best to choose products that have a low dose of THC. Gummies, chocolate bars with individually dosed squares, and other low-dose edibles are ideal choices for first-timer edible users.

When it comes to figuring out the right dose for yourself, remember that everyone’s body responds differently to different products. For example, some people may feel euphoria with an edible that has a higher dose of THC than others.

Another key tip for beginners is to take it slow. Most beginner edibles take a while to kick in, so it’s critical that you wait at least an hour before taking another dose of your edible.

In addition, experts suggest taking a small portion of an edible, waiting an hour or so, and then increasing the dose by 5 mg until you reach a dose that gives you the desired effect. This helps to ensure you don’t overdo it or get a high that doesn’t match your expectations.
