What do I need to know about edibles’ potency?
The potency of edibles is indicated in milligrams of THC and milligrams of CBD.

What is the difference between THC and CBD?
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol) are the two most common chemicals found in cannabis plants. CBD is also found in hemp plants, which are defined as cannabis plants that contain less than 0.2% of THC.
THC is a psychoactive ingredient, while CBD is non-psychoactive.
How much should I eat?
Different consumers have different tolerance levels for THC. It is usually advised that first time consumers do not consume more than 5mg of THC.
It is important to wait until the full effects are felt before consuming more. In some cases, this can take more than one hour, depending on a person’s metabolism and the time elapsed since their last meal.
Remember, you can always eat more, but you can’t eat less.
What should I know if I ate too much?
It is not possible to die from a cannabis overdose, however you can feel very uncomfortable or nauseous if you’ve ingested more than what your tolerance level allows.
If you encounter yourself in this situation drink some water, eat some food, and try to find a quiet place to relax and sleep. Most importantly, don’t panic, don’t drive, and wait until the effects subside.
The effects of THC are amplified by alcohol; we do not recommend mixing cannabis with alcohol or any other substances.
How do edibles compare to other forms of ingestion?
Edibles are the healthiest form of cannabis ingestion. Here are a few general comparisons:
Vaping effects are usually felt the fastest (within seconds) and subside the fastest (15 minutes to an hour).
Smoking comes next, usually felt within minutes and lasting up to a couple of hours.
Edibles take the longest to kick in (between 45 minutes and a couple of hours), and last the longest (between 6 to 8 hours). This is great for consumers experiencing chronic pain, or for consumers who want to get the most out of their THC.
Keep cannabis products out of reach of children and pets, store in original packaging, do not travel with cannabis products to other states. Please consume cannabis responsibly.
