Cannabis, when used correctly, can potentially be a great way to relax, to stir up some creativity, or just to have a good giggle. Heritage Provisioning wants to give you the best products available, but also give you the tools to get the most out of your cannabis experience.
In this blog, we’ll talk about dosages, trusted brands, and cannabis education that will get your experience right.
The Importance of Proper Dosages
Firstly, just like with other substances – the more cannabis you take, the more intense the experience. Similarly, the lower your tolerance is, the more intense the experience. When taking edibles, pay close attention to the amount of THC in each piece. A “micro-dose” – or the lowest dose at which effects can still be felt, is considered to be around 2.5 to 5mg. The “standard dose” of THC in edibles is 10mg.
If you are smoking, vaping, or dabbing cannabis, it can be a little bit harder to measure exact dosage. As a rule of thumb, vaping and dabbing cannabis gives consumers a higher concentration of canna-compounds per hit. So, even if you are used to being able to handle several hits of a bong, you want to be cautious when dabbing or vaping.
Keep in mind that there are other factors that can affect how you feel besides dosages, including how recently you’ve eaten, the setting in which you consume, the specific cannabinoid profile, and your age. The best way to make sure you don’t overdo it is to take it slow, especially when you are first starting out.
The Importance of Trusted Brands
Furthermore, with increased legalization and awareness — the cannabis industry is booming! New businesses are popping up left and right. But just like any other industry, there are brands you can trust and brands you can’t. Heritage Provisioning only carries reputable and trusted brands. Why? Because we want to make sure our customers are getting what they paid for.
Trusted brands will provide the strain, THC/CBD percentage, and suggested dosage of each particular product, as well as other important information included in lab testing. As we covered in the last section, it’s important to know what you are getting to make sure that you can have the best experience possible.
The Importance of Cannabis Education
Thirdly, cannabis education is vitally important for both the user and the cannabis industry as a whole. On a personal level, learning about cannabis and how it affects your body will have a direct impact on your decision making when purchasing cannabis products.
Just like reading the nutritional facts on a box of cereal, you have to know what you are looking for in the provided information. Here are some suggestions of what you should know about before purchasing cannabis:
- What type of effects are you looking for in your cannabis experience? Do you want pain relief and relaxation or psychoactive effects? Or both?
- THC/CBD percentage – CBD can potentially counter the psychoactive effects of THC, but CBD is helpful for pain relief. A higher THC percentage could equate to more psychoactive effects.
- Dosage – How intense do you want your experience to be? What is your tolerance? Where should you start if this is your first time?
