Please Consume Responsibly

EDIBLES ARE DIFFERENT

Everyone’s metabolism is different and therefore has a different reaction to cannabis ‘edibles’. It is important that you understand your edible tolerance to have a safe and enjoyable experience.

The key to enjoying edibles is to start with a low milligram dosage (the state of Colorado recommends you start with 5mg) or a single serving product, and to wait an extended period of time until you know how the edible will affect you. An edible takes longer to metabolize in your system, but the effects will last much longer than smoking or vaping.

Even if you are a regular smoker you may not be comfortable taking large doses of edibles. Everyone’s metabolism is different and individuals will experience different reactions. Once you’ve “started low, and gone slow”, you’ll develop an understanding of your edibles tolerance and have a safe and enjoyable experience. Always remember that you can always take more later or next time. You cannot “un-take” a product once consumed.
