Cannabis Edibles are gaining popularity among medical and recreation users. Most of the edibles suppliers for cannabis dispensaries are illegal. That doesn’t mean that they don’t run clean kitchens and that they’re unsafe to consume. But it does mean they is lack of regulation and their THC levels are not accuarate as well. In fact, we rounded up a bunch of edible and had them tested. All the THC measured were about half of what was on the label. This can be beneficial and problematic. It can help first time users get a lower dose as with most edibles, less is more. People will often take too much their first time. It can be problematic for real medical patients that are familiar with their THC tolerances and they need their medicine at a particular dosage.
How do we solve these cannabis dosage problems?
We need to educate everyone who is eating edicles and we need accuate labeling. This is the main reason why the majority of Doctors in Canada refuse to prescibe medical marijuana, either as edibles or smokable buds. Simply because their is no way to accuarate measure your dosage, you never know exactly how much you are ingesting. This may not be as big of a problem for recreational users, but we feel they should also know the dosages they are ingesting as well. You should accuarately know the high to expect when taking any substance.
If you want something done right
You know how the saying goes, if you want something done right, you have to cook it yourself! If you have access to legal buds as a patient, you could measure them before cooking and after making ghee. That way it is easy to measure you dosage with some simple mathematics. Don’t calculate when your too baked… it best to good with a somewhat good head on your shoulders.
