The Perfect Edibles for New Cannabis Consumers

Edible cannabis is a unique experience – it is more intense than other forms of consumption (like smoking and vaping) and it can be overwhelming for some. All it takes is one bad experience to turn someone off from something for the rest of their life, so ensuring that your first-time consuming cannabis edibles isn’t one you regret, be sure to remember one key thing: “low and slow.”

For those who are familiar with the cannabis high, chances are you’ve experienced getting too high at one point or another. You know that while it is uncomfortable, it will pass – and you will be perfectly fine in the end. It’s unsuspecting new consumers who need to be the most careful with edibles – the most common mistake made by “newbies” is thinking it isn’t working and eating more.

As a rule of thumb, new consumers will want to start with 5-10 milligrams of THC – and should then wait an hour (or even up to 90 minutes) for it to start taking effect before eating any more cannabis. For more information on safe dosing with cannabis edibles check out our guide here!

Evergreen Organix offers a variety of cannabis edibles – many of which are offered in different dosages ranging from 10 to 100 milligrams. While most edibles come in either 25 milligram or 100 milligram options, there are a couple that are perfect for new consumers who want to try edibles without fear of over-doing it.

Fruit Chews are sweet sugar-coated gummy treats that come in a variety of flavors and are the perfect introduction to cannabis edibles as each chew is dosed at 10 milligrams THC. For those who are entirely new to cannabis biting off half of one of these chews may be enough to reach the desired effect – but for novice users the entire chew is the perfect starting point. Once you’ve eaten your first Fruit Chew you should wait at least an hour before deciding whether you want to intensify the feeling with another half or whole chew.

Another perfect starter option is Canna Cubes – a hard candy that is infused with 5 milligrams of THC. These make the absolute best starting point for new cannabis consumers, and those who hope to gain the medicinal benefits of cannabis through microdosing. Numerous flavor options are available and there is sure to be a Canna Cube to fit your taste buds.

In the end, it is up to us to be responsible as cannabis consumers – and sometimes that means remembering to be careful with our consumption. If you’re hoping to introduce cannabis to someone through edibles or wanting to try it for the first time yourself, either of these two fruity flavored candies by Evergreen Organix are the perfect starting point.
