Marijuana edible dosages

Published Mar 18, 2019 10:30 a.m. ET

Cannabis infused edibles are new, exciting and healthy alternative to smoking, that allows for much more control over each dose enabling the user to personalize their experience. Questions like, “How strong is a 10mg edible?’ are nearly impossible to answer because every person reacts differently to different amounts of THC. Someone with a higher tolerance that has used marijuana edibles in the past may not even notice 10mg of THC, whereas a newbie just ingesting cannabis-infused products for the first time may get just wrecked off a mere 5mg.

“How much of a weed brownie should I eat” and “how many weed gummies should I eat” are both among the top ten asked questions about edibles on google proving the general public may need a bit more assistance in accurately setting an effective marijuana edibles dosage that will produce their desired results. Luckily there are some basic guidelines you can work within when experimenting to achieve the safest THC total dosage to suit your needs.

Marijuana edible dosages

While we can’t predict precisely how one marijuana gummy or brownie will affect you, we can provide a helpful list of recommended guidelines to work within.

1 milligram to 2.5 milligrams of THC

Ingesting such a small amount of THC will produce gentle effects including improved focus, heightened creativity, and mild relief for those seeking relief from pain, anxiety, or stress.
Recommended For: First-time users, occasional users, and those looking for pain relief without the intense high.

2.4 milligrams to 15 milligrams of THC

Consuming a marijuana edible with this much THC content is expected to have a stronger effect on pain relief but can also come with other sensations such as euphoria that may impair hand-eye coordination.
Recommended For: Casual and regular users as well as people seeking relief from chronic pain, or sleep problems.

15 milligrams to 30 milligrams of THC

This range is considered a moderate dose and will likely result in an intense couch locking body and head high. This amount will likely impair hand-eye coordination, give a sense of euphoria, and may alter perception which can be overwhelming to anyone with a low tolerance of THC.

Recommended For: Regular or chronic users of marijuana products who have already built a tolerance. Medical patients seeking intense pain relief, and those looking for help in managing sleep issues.

30 milligrams to 50 milligrams of THC

This is a potent dose of THC and will produce powerful effects such as a strong feeling of euphoria or an altered perception. This amount will impair a user’s ability to think clearly and will also interfere with hand-eye coordination. This amount will get you stoned.

Recommended for- Seasoned long-term or regular users of marijuana products, those seeking intense or chronic pain relief and also anyone with a poor GI absorption rendering cannabinoids less effective.

50 milligrams to 100 milligrams of THC

This is the highest dosage recommended. No person should ingest more than 100 milligrams of THC at one time. Even at an amount of 50 milligrams to 100 milligrams a marijuana edible has the potential to cause more adverse reactions to effects. Users may find the feeling to be overwhelming and negative. Consuming this much THC can cause other adverse effects such as rapid heart rate, nausea, headaches, and pain.

Recommended For: Only those who have a high tolerance and experience level with cannabis products, or patients looking to alleviate symptoms of cancer, chronic pain, and other inflammatory conditions.

It is always recommended that new users begin with the lowest dose possible of 1-2.5 milligrams and gradually up their edible marijuana dosages as they gain experience and familiarity with the effects. Cannabis edibles can be enjoyable, but they also have the potential to be much more potent and longer lasting than traditional dried herb, making them the ultimate way of consuming THC but also the most notorious for producing a negative experience in those who weren’t fully aware of what to expect.
