 10 Edible Safety Tips You Don’t Want to Forget

10 Edible Safety Tips You Don't Want to Forget

By The Stoner's Cookbook

Eating too much THC can be scary, even for seasoned veterans. When it comes to edibles, make sure you know what you're doing. Follow the 10 commandments of edibles, as compiled by hightimes.com

  • Thou shalt go low and slow

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Start with 10 mg of THC & wait 2 hrs before consuming more. Your digestive system processes pot slowly & your liver converts THC into a more potent chemical, increasing the intensity of the high.

  • Thou shalt label homemade pot foods

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    If you prefer to create your own cannabis-infused foods at home, be sure to always label items to prevent accidental ingestion by a roommate, friend, babysitter, house-guest, family member, etc.

  • Thou shalt not mix with alcohol

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Combining edibles with alcohol should only be attempted by those who have mastered both substances. Smoking a jay while rocking a beer is a completely different vibe.

  • Thou shalt eat a proper dinner

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Edibles are much more intense when consumed on an empty stomach. Be sure to eat a solid, nutritious meal before taking your THC dose.

  • Thou shalt not drive or operate heavy machinery

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Follow the rule for drinking: don't drink and drive. Save the cannabis until you're at home, ready to relax and rejuvenate.

  • Thou shalt keep away from children

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Store your edibles in a locking cabinet or box. At an appropriate age, educate any minors about the effects of edibles and make sure they understand these substances are for adult use only.

  • Thou shalt have unmedicated snacks on hand

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Don't let yourself get too stoned from sheer hunger. If you're eating pot chocolate, keep some regular chocolate on hand if you need to taste more deliciousness.

  • Thou shalt keep CBD capsules on hand

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    CBD, a cannabinoid with healing properties, can lessen paranoid, panicky feelings that come after ingesting too much THC. Keep some CBD-rich cannabis on hand to take the edge off & balance your high.

  • Thou shalt remain calm

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    If you do happen to overindulge on pot-laden treats, remember that you will recover just fine. Retreat to a safe place where you can lay down; most likely you'll drift off to sleep for 10 – 12 hours.

  • Thou shalt never prank!

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Never prank people by giving them infused foods without their knowledge, as such actions are criminally irresponsible. Ingesting pot food without expecting its effects is scary and dangerous.
