HOW TO ADD SAFETY TO YOUR USE OF CANNABIS EDIBLES?

I have never been a big fan of typical edibles. There are nearly always two unknowns:

1. Patients do not know how much THC is right for them

2. The labels almost never say what is inside them.

In addition, the other issue with edibles is that the effect is delayed for up to two hours and the metabolism of THC in the liver to 11-Hydroxy-THC, creates a molecule that is much stronger and has a much longer half life.

So, patients eat a little….Don’t feel anything….eat more—> Over-medicated.

So, here is one tip on something you can do. Obtain a small bottle of a CBD only whole plant extract. Keep it in the fridge. If you or someone you know is getting THC toxic, the use of 10-20 mg of CBD under the tongue will help them out a lot, as CBD counters the THC stony effect.

Try it. You will most certainly like it.
