Many people just read a couple of articles about the effect of weed, and they go straight to the cannabis dispensary to buy it. Before you start consuming cannabis, there are a couple of things you should know about it, which we will discuss in this blog post.
One should be aware of many aspects of cannabis consumption, especially before first-time cannabis consumption. But the most important thing to know is the amount of THC you should consume.
Knowing the right amount of THC you can consume is like a weed passport since it allows you to try different cannabis products without worrying about any issues. So, let’s learn how to know the right dose of THC for your body.
To better understand the right amount of THC, we will discuss it based on different products.
While smoking, you will get an immediate onset effect, and therefore, deciding the right dose of THC, in this case, is a lot easier. You are going to feel high just after a minute of cannabis consumption, and therefore, you can easily decide whether you have consumed too much cannabis or not.
Different types of cannabis fall into different categories in potency, terpene content, and cannabinoid content, but all of them will make you feel high. But you can always look at the high THC level mentioned on the packet to choose the right strain.
The vape pens are pre-filled with high THC cannabis oil, and the same goes for cartridges as well. Cannabis oil is a type of cannabis concentrate that has now become very common. The vape works by heating the cannabis oil to the point of vaporization, and then the vape produced can be inhaled by the user.
Just like flowers, vapes can make you high in a couple of minutes, and the effect can surge in 30 minutes. But since all the vapes can cause an intense high with minimal results, it is always necessary to be more cautious while consuming any cannabis product through vapes.
The concentrates are the most potent cannabis product, and they can contain even 99% of high THC. If they are not pre-filled in the vapes, they can be consumed in large quantities using a dab rig. But dabbing concentrates is never recommended for newbies as it is one of the most advanced levels of cannabis consumption.
You should go for dabbing concentrates only if you have been consuming cannabis for the past many years and you are familiar with the effects of cannabis consumption. It is only the high THC of concentrates that makes it suitable for veterans only.
The way your body processes THC is entirely different when you consume cannabis in edible form. When you consume any edible form of cannabis, then the liver converts the THC into 11-hydroxy-THC. This form of THC is more potent, and it even lasts longer than the usual form of THC.
The effects of edibles can take around 30 minutes to one hour to kick in, and once they do, it can last up to several hours. So, always have enough time to relax before consuming cannabis in edible form.
Understanding THC and how the body reacts to high THC is necessary to consume cannabis without dealing with any side effects. But there is nothing like the ideal amount of THC you should consume, as it all depends on how long you have been consuming cannabis and which form of cannabis you are consuming.
