Marijuana concentration varies from product to product, as do individual reactions. While many experience relaxation, euphoria and altered senses, others may experience anxiety, paranoia, irregular heart rhythms, disorientation, even psychosis.
The effects of consuming edibles are different and stronger than the effects of smoking marijuana, especially for first time users.
The type and strength of product, your tolerance, body chemistry and what you’ve had to eat all have impact effects.
Edibles may take up to 2 hours to produce effects and last as long as 4 to 8 hours.
People over 50 years of age and/or those with a pre-existing medical condition are at greater risk of experiencing undesirable health effects from marijuana.
Take caution if consuming alcohol or other drugs when using marijuana. It is not recommended to mix marijuana use with other drugs and/or alcohol.
Do not store your edibles with other food and snacks to avoid unintentional consumption by pets or children.
If you experience undesirable effects from edibles, try to remain calm and relax in a quiet place. If you have a medical emergency, call 911
