Jump to a section:

Welcome to Bloom Montana’s comprehensive guide on the dos and don’ts of edible dosing, where we explore the art of indulging responsibly in THC gummies and edibles. As enthusiasts of Montana’s best edibles and gummies, we understand the importance of mastering the intricacies of dosage for a safe and enjoyable experience. Discover the ideal THC gummies and edibles, including popular brands like Sinful THC DrinksWana edibles, carefully curated for your satisfaction. Interested in understanding how long THC gummies last? Or are you looking for recommendations on 1:1 THC:CBD edibles, or unique high-CBG products like Wana’s 1:1:1 gummies? We’ve got you covered.

Every person has a unique internal physiologic environment and can therefore experience different results with various medications. One person’s response to a dose of edible cannabis can vary significantly from the next, even more so than other medications or herbs. Why?

Several factors are involved, including previous history of cannabis use, gastrointestinal factors, and the function/sensitivity of one’s endocannabinoid system.

Once you go above 100 mg and into extremely high dosages such as 150 mg, 200 mg, or even 500 mg marijuana edibles, the risk of negative effects associated with the idea of over consuming cannabis—such as nausea and paranoia—increase, even for consumers who may have very high tolerances.

Key Considerations That Shape Your THC Edible Experience

  • THC has biphasic properties, which means at one dose it might have one effect (relieves stress) but one larger can cause the opposite (increased feelings of stress).
  • Taking THC edibles on an empty stomach can cause your dose to be absorbed faster with a more intense onset. A meal rich in fat can cause you to absorb more THC than usual.
  • If you take your regular dose outside of your normal routine, it can cause a completely different experience.
  • If you ever become uncomfortable from overconsumption try laying down, closing your eyes, and take deep slow breaths. You can also try watching a funny or comforting movie.
  • If you feel like you are experiencing trouble breathing or heart-related problems, you should seek medical attention.

How Many MG of Edibles Should You Eat?

The ideal edibles dose depends on a lot of things, including tolerance, individual body chemistry, and the experience you’re looking for. But there are some basic guidelines that can help you find the right dose of marijuana edibles, which are measured in milligrams (mg).

1 – 2.5 mg THC edibles

Effects include: Mild relief of symptoms like pain, stress, and anxiety; increased focus and creativity.

Good for: First-time consumers or regular consumers looking to microdose.

2.5 – 15 mg THC edibles

Effects include: Stronger relief of pain and anxiety symptoms; euphoria; impaired coordination and perception.

Good for: Standard recreational use; persistent symptoms not addressed by smaller doses; people looking for a good night’s sleep.

30 – 50 mg THC edibles

Effects include: Strong euphoric effects; significantly impaired coordination and perception.

Good for: High tolerance THC consumers; consumers whose GI systems don’t absorb cannabinoids well.

50 – 100 mg THC edibles

Effects include: Seriously impaired coordination and perception; possible unpleasant side effects including nausea, pain, and increased heart rate.

Good for: Experienced, high-tolerance THC consumers; patients living with inflammatory disorders, cancer, and other serious conditions.

How Long Does It Take To Feel An Effect From THC Gummies?

Navigating the effects of THC edibles is crucial to avoid a common dosing mistake. Often, individuals may not feel anything after an hour or even 2, leading to the temptation to take an additional dose. However, the repercussions of overconsumption may manifest hours later, causing discomfort. To optimize the medical benefits of THC gummies, such as pain and anxiety relief, consider adding CBD to the mix. CBD can temper the intoxicating effects of THC, providing a more balanced experience. It’s vital for consumers to be aware of the CBD and THC content in their products, especially when considering the ratio. Wana has led the industry in developing novel cannabinoid and terpene formulations for their THC gummies, and we now have multiple varieties with CBG and/or CBN in different ratios to modulate the psychoactive effects of the THC, with CBG adding a uniquely uplifting effect, while CBN is reported to help with sleeplessness.

Exploring the therapeutic potential of edibles reveals that a balanced CBD:THC ratio of 1:1 can offer potent therapeutic effects with reduced impairment compared to THC-dominant alternatives. Other cannabinoid ratios offer a range of different effects, which Bloom is proud to share with Montana consumers through our partnership with Wana. However, it’s crucial to note that excessive doses, even in well-balanced products, may still lead to classic cannabis overconsumption symptoms.

Products with a CBD:THC ratio of 1:1 are powerfully therapeutic and produce less impairment than a THC-dominant product. Excessive doses of these products can still produce classic cannabis overconsumption symptoms.

Tips For Relieving Overconsumption Of Edibles

  • Be in a calm, safe environment and have gentle reassurance that everything will be OK is the primary treatment.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • A large 50-200mg dose of CBD (without significant amounts of THC) can act as a partial antidote. Lemon oil, found predominantly in the rind and in lower amounts in the juice, has also been used historically for this purpose. Grate a tablespoon of lemon zest and chew it up before swallowing.
  • Most people do not need emergency medical care unless they have pre-existing heart disease or another serious medical condition. For ongoing vomiting and diarrhea, intravenous rehydration may be necessary.
