A graph from a 1980 research article showing how long you’ll stay high for:
In this experiment, participants still felt a bit high after 6 hours, but not near maximum levels.
1. Edible weeds, especially high doses, can cause anxiety
Possible Strategies for Reducing Anxiety About Cannabis Edibles (Anecdotal Reports):
- Take CBD at the same time or before
- Take L-theanine
See also this article on cannabis anxiety.
2. It’s really easy to overeat – you’ll be fine, but it can be uncomfortable
Read the package. Make sure you know if that’s X mg of THC per serving and how many “things” are in one serving.
3. Start with 5 mg of THC or less.
As a very rough approximation, smoking a standard 1⁄2 gram joint on your own would lead to elevation levels similar to that of a 10 mg THC edible.
5 mg will make most people without a “solidly high” tolerance – maybe a 7-9⁄10.
Even taking 2 mg, people with no tolerance will be elevated – at this dosage, you may still find it quite easy to have conversations with people, and as the dosage rises above 5 mg, the conversation will become more and more difficult for the patient. most people.
If you haven’t had any experience with altered states of consciousness or are concerned about possible anxiety, try 2mg of THC for your first 3 times, then try 5mg, before going higher.
If 5 mg is not enough, wait 2 hours to make sure it has taken effect, then try taking an additional 5 mg. Do not add 10 mg – you will still have a large chunk of the 5 mg in your system.
If 5 mg was not enough, start the next time with 7.5 mg or 10 mg – do not go up to 20 mg. It would be even smarter to try 5mg twice more, as around 40% (anecdotal reports) of weed users have trouble getting high the first few times they use.
4. Do not start again before waiting 2 hours
If you have a full stomach, it may take an hour and a half before you start to feel high enough and 2 or more hours to get the full effects.
It could be more like 1 hour before feeling high enough and 1.5 hours for full effects on an empty stomach (anecdotal reports).
5. You might not get high the first 1 to 3 times
We’re not sure why, although it appears to be a frequently reported event.
Try a low dose a few times before going above 5 mg – you may be taking the perfect dose, but you are just feeling the weed’s “first time tolerance” effect.
6. If you’ve taken too much: tell a friend to read the bad trip guide and help you out.
Symptoms of a moderate to intense high (doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve taken too much):
- Increase (and more noticeable) in heart rate
- Dry mouth
- Paranoia / anxiety
No one has ever died from a marijuana overdose.
If you suffer from paranoia / anxiety and want to reduce it, try one of the following:
Remember that the main effect of taking too much is paranoia. Thousands of people consume too much weed every year, they feel really uncomfortable for about 12 hours and then they all feel great again.

- Maybe don’t use weed at all, or at least don’t use often if you’re under 21 (maybe even more important if you’re under 18). The research is quite inconclusive, but prevention is better than cure.
- Consider avoiding weeds if you have psychosis, schizophrenia, or first-degree relatives with psychotic illnesses like schizophrenia or bipolar
- Avoid daily use or high potency cannabis products as some researchers have found that they are associated with an increased risk of psychosis
- Do not drive at height
- If it is illegal to smoke where you are, know that the biggest risk of using weed for your future / health is the legal risk, so consider waiting for it to be legal or decriminalized there. where you are
