How to Consume Edibles Safely

Start with a small, “microdose”

If you are new to edibles, it’s best to start with the lowest dose possible to make sure your body can comfortably digest cannabis. It’s also the best way to find out if you like the effects of edibles. You can always increase your dose later to reach your desired result.

The standard dose for recreational edibles in Colorado is 10mg THC, although some products contain smaller doses. Likewise, chocolate bars are usually segmented in 10 mg pieces. Starting with a small amount and assessing how it makes you feel is crucial. Recommended doses:

  • New Consumer 1-5 mg
  • Occasional Consumer 5-10 mg – This is considered the standard single serving and how most edibles are divided. Eating more than 10 mg isn’t recommended for the average cannabis user.
  • Frequent Consumers 10-15 mg – Those who use cannabis daily may find they need a larger dose to achieve their desired results.

Go slow and wait

Edibles can take up to two hours or longer to take effect. So before you increase your dose, make sure you have waited long enough to get the full effects. Some newer products promote fast-acting results of 15-20 minutes. Be sure to read the labels to be informed.


Don’t mix

It’s not advisable to mix edibles with alcohol or other controlled substances. Alcohol opens the blood vessels in your digestive system, allowing your body to absorb more THC. This can cause you to feel too high and increase your chances for negative side effects such as anxiety. Alcohol can also release inhibitions, tempting you to overindulge in edibles.

Store safely

Always keep edibles away from children and pets, as your treats will tempt both if they have access. It’s best to keep your edibles in their original package since it’s child-resistant and won’t be mistaken for regular food.
