Cannabis edibles are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the three states where marijuana is now legal. It can be a fun way to enjoy marijuana, but too much of it can be very dangerous. These are often time’s in the form of candy or sweets, which can be extremely appealing to beginners as well as seasoned marijuana smokers. It can be lots of fun to bake some “fun brownies” but you have to be very careful. Too much THC can be very dangerous, so reading these tips should help.

Go Slow and Label Your Food
It may be tempting to start with a large amount of edibles, but your best bet is to go slow. You should start with a low dose of 10 mg on THC and wait at least two hours before you consume any more marijuana. The digestive system has the tendency to digest marijuana slowly especially when you have just eaten a large meal. Once it is inside your liver, it converts into a different chemical which is way more potent and can make it dangerous.

If you do make brownies or desserts with pot in them, it is best to make sure that you label your food so you know exactly is under that plastic wrap. This keeps it safe from neighbors, roommates, friends, family members, from getting into something that could be detrimental to their health.

Do not Drink Alcohol & Eat Dinner
It is important that you do not consume edible marijuana when you have already consumed alcohol or plan on consuming alcohol. Alcohol has the ability to magnify the impact of marijuana which can be dangerous if not handle carefully. It is also important that you eat a full meal before consuming any marijuana because it can be extremely potent otherwise. Have a brownie for dessert but make sure that you do not overdo it.

Be Calm and Don’t Prank Others
Be as calm and safe as possible when consuming edible marijuana and get some rest after it is consumed. It is also crucial that you do not prank others into thinking that they are eating regular brownies. It can be dangerous, especially if you do not know the impacts it could have on others.

Edible cannabis can be fun but it is important that you and your friends use wisely and are as careful as possible. Try not to consume too much at once.
