Cannabis Edibles and Their Benefits:A Guide for Beginners
By Chris Buske, Wonders of Nature (416 S Barstow St. Eau Claire)
Cannabis offers many medical and recreational helpful benefits. Whether it’s CBD-rich products to calm the nervous system of stress and anxiety, or THC-dominant products for chronic conditions like insomnia and pain, this plant is helping many. On the recreational side, when used responsibly, THC can provide a pleasurable, euphoric experience which is an effective way many manage everyday stress and anxiety.
Even though smoking is still the most popular way to consume cannabis, THC edibles are quickly closing the gap – you don’t have to smoke cannabis to get the desired benefits. A wide and tasty selection of THC edibles are now entering the dispensary market, including at Wonders of Nature. With specific dosage labeled on the product, they are easier to obtain and safer to consume.
Ideal Amount Varies
We’re all designed differently and have different mental perspectives, so the impact of cannabis varies. While one person can feel the effects of THC on just 2.5 mg, another might need 3-5 times that amount to get the same desired results. Dosing of cannabis edibles is personal with everyone’s ideal amount being unique to them. And everyone’s ideal effect varies: some people enjoy the euphoric high, some the intensity, and some want just the medical benefits.
Edibles are a different experience than smoking—it’s really up to you to discover how your body reacts to cannabis in order to understand what works best for you. With today’s edibles, we can dial in the dose and slowly increase to find an optimum amount. Retail packages, like those sold at Wonders of Nature, clearly mark the milligrams on the packaging, which removes any guessing game from the equation.
Starting “Low and Slow”
While the “standard” dose is 10mg, I suggest cutting your edible into 2.5mg pieces and waiting (60-90 minutes) to see the full results of that before adjusting the dosage. 2.5mg is considered a safe starting point where you may feel some of the euphoric high, as well as the medical benefits, but is safe enough to determine if you want to add or remove milligrams in your next dosage.
Additionally, microdosing is a medical way of using cannabis where the effect is not to get high but only to receive the benefits like improved sleep or improved appetite. To do this, take 0.5-2mg of edibles and observe your body’s reaction – the goal is finding the right amount to take without experiencing the euphoric high. Mood or focus may also improve as the THC, and other active compounds, will still interact with your body’s natural cannabinoid receptors.
At Wonders of Nature (WoN), in addition to our wide selection of trusted craft quality CBD products, we now offer natural, non-synthetic, 100% Hemp Derived THC Delta9 products that start at 10mg of THC per serving on up.
