Know Your Dose: How to Avoid Getting Vegetated

Avoid Getting Vegetated.jpg

Most long-time cannabis have a story about edibles--that time you were sampling your pot cookie dough and ended up with the munchies and kept eating the dough until you thought your dog was trying to stare you down...Here at 365 Recreational, we may have a tale or two to tell. But one thing we noticed? A lot of these stories date back to the bad old days of prohibition, when dosage was always guesswork. These days, we're proud to offer a range of fine cannabis edibles withpackaging that will give you the information you need to get the right amount of high. Just remember to follow the teachings of Cautious the Cookie Monster, and you'll be fine! Here's a few tried and true tips from your friends at Seattle's best pot shop (365 Recreational, of course). 

1. Start small. A typical dosage for cannabis candy ranges from 5 mg to 10 mg of THC per piece. But 5 mg can pack a punch if you're not used to edibles. So if you haven't tried an edible in a while, start with half a piece and see how you feel. And be sure to wait at least an hour before you eat the other half. 

2. Read your labels. This sounds obvious, but not all edibles were created equal. A typical dose is 10 mg of THC, but that doesn't mean that all edibles are 10 mg per dosage. So no gobbling without reading the fine print! 

3. Be a gracious host. If you're serving pot cookies or candies (or, for that matter, THC beverages), make sure to clearly label the snacks and include information on dosages for your guests.

If you have any more questions or want recommendations on the right edible for you, please swing by our Seattle pot shop and talk to our friendly and knowledgeable staff, who can show you all our tasty treats, including vegan options and products for people who prefer a heavier dose. We might even tell you a story or two...
