We all love our edibles but they are notorious for taking much longer to take effect, resulting in many people making the mistake of taking more too soon and everything hits all at once. (I am personally guilty of this!). Whatever you do, you should not take more edibles within 3 hours of taking the first does. Edibles can take up to 2 hours for my body to process. Just about everyone who enjoys edibles can tell you a story about the time they took too many. Learn from our mistakes and don’t do it.
Thankfully, edibles come pre-dosed which means the packaging already tells you how much THC it contains. No matter how much edibles you take, wait at least 90 minutes to 3 hours before you decide to top up. Edibles have to pass through the digestive system in order for the cannabinoids to reach the bloodstream, whereas smoking and vaporizing go directly to the lungs.
