7 Rookie Edibles Mistakes To Avoid

By The Stoner's Cookbook

We all have that one friend who's sworn off edibles from a bad experience. Whether you're cooking or consuming, there are some rookie mistakes that you want to avoid. Here are 7 of the most common.

  • Eating too much

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    This is especially true for veteran smokers who don't realize that edibles are an entirely different game. Remember, edibles take much longer to kick in. Be patient & stick to the recommended dosage.

  • Not knowing your edible's potency

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Building off the last point, if you're buying your edibles, be sure to read the label and consume accordingly. If you're making your own, know how much you're putting into your edibles.

  • Not knowing what to expect

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Different methods of consuming lead to very different effects. When it comes to edibles, it usually results in more intense, body highs. Know what to expect so you're not caught off guard.

  • Not knowing how to sober up

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    If you happen to get too high, it's good to know how to sober up. Foods like pistachios, pine nuts or citrus fruits help the process. CBD pills or high CBD strains also reduce the effects of a high.

  • Not having munchies on hand

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    There's nothing worse than getting the munchies after consuming edibles & eating more edibles. If you know you're going to be craving food while high, have some non-medicated munchies ready.

  • Forgetting to decarboxylate

    When cooking with weed, you need to [decarboxylate](http://www.thestonerscookbook.com/how_to_cook_with_weed.php#method) (extract the THC) in order for to get the high. Marijuana is only soluble in fats, so be sure to cook with butter or oil.

  • Making small batches

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    It might seem better to make small batches so you can try out your edibles, but it's much easier to control dosage & know what to expect when you make large batches, since they're more consistent.
