Have you ever wondered how many peach ring edibles should I eat? The peach ring edible is a new baked edible that is going to be very popular. How many should I eat for a high? How many for pain relief?
How Many Peach Rings Should You Eat?
New Users – Experiment with edibles slowly. If you are new to edibles, start slow and be patient. To have a good experience, divide a single 25mg peach ring into three pieces. Try eating one of the 8.25mg pieces and wait 45-60 minutes before eating more. It takes time to feel the effects, so be patient.
Experienced Users – Experienced users most likely know how to have an enjoyable experience. Still take it slow until you find your dosing limit. Depending on your THC tolerance you might start with one full 25mg. It’s easy and safe to dose at the level you feel most comfortable but we still recommend you start slow, but do you and have fun.
3 Factors That Influence How High You Get From Edibles
While you may think the only thing that will determine how high you get is dosage, that’s actually not true. There are several factors involved.
Clearly, everyone is unique. Everyone’s physiology is different, so no one will react exactly the same way to the same substance. What may make one person happy and invigorated may make another person feel anxious and paranoid.
Environment and Expectations
Make sure you take edibles in a comfortable environment. Nothing can mess with your high more than feeling like you’re not in a safe and comfortable environment.
No big surprise here. The lower the dose you take, the less high you’ll get, while the higher the dose you take, the higher you’ll get. You’re probably thinking, “Thanks Captain Obvious!”
There’s a trap many of fall into. We take a dose that makes us feel really good. Then we think, “Well if this much makes me feel ‘really good,’ if I take more, it will make me feel great!”
HOW CAN I MEDICATE WITH EDIBLES SAFELY?
The best piece of advice we can give is: start slow. You can always eat more if you don’t feel the desired effect, but as our grower and cultivator Chris B. likes to say, “once you buy the ticket, you take the ride.” Unlike smoking or vaporizing cannabis, edibles do not offer an immediate effect. They need time to be broken down and digested. Everyone’s absorption rate is different, but it typically takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours for ingested THC to reach you effectively. Give your body the time it needs to absorb and process the cannabinoids. we recommend eating 10mg per hour and working your way up from there. Many patients are familiar with the feeling of being ‘too high’. It can be very unpleasant if you’re not careful. As you experiment with the dosage that works best for your body, you’ll begin to get a feel for your tolerance level, and it will become easier to consume the right amount every time.
One of the pros of edibles is their portability. For patients who are traveling or need to keep their medication out of sight, edibles are ideal. However if you’re trying an edible for the first time it’s typically a good idea to stay at home when using. Edibles can take up to two hours to reach their maximum effect. A common mistake is to consume an edible and then go about your day. Some patients find they become overpowered once the edible’s full effect kicks in, and if they are dining at a restaurant or participating in a public event, they can become anxious and withdrawn. If it’s your first time, it’s not a bad idea to stay at home until you know exactly how your body will react to specific edibles dosing.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU OVERMEDICATE? WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I THINK I’VE EATEN TOO MANY EDIBLES?
Consuming too many edibles at once isn’t going to cause irreparable damage to your body, but it can be a tremendously unpleasant experience. Many patients report anxiety and paranoia as the two main unwanted side effects. Some commonly known effects include feeling extremely sluggish and ’lifeless’, experiencing dry mouth and nasal passages, and feeling cold or hot flashes throughout your body.
If you think you’ve eaten too many edibles, first remember it is nearly impossible to ingest a fatal dose of THC. Drink as much water as you’re able to. Many patients immediately try to lie down, but experience dizziness from staying in a sleeping position. Instead, try to sit upright with your back against a pillow and extend your legs. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth slowly and steadily. Don’t panic! You’re certainly not dying, though you will likely start to feel very tired as the discomfort passes. A solid nap or a single night of early bedtime is often all that is needed to reset yourself. Some of our staff have had good results smoking or vaporizing a CBD-only strain when they are overmedicated. CBD can ease anxiety and lessen the effects of a ‘high’, making it easier for a patient to to relax if they’ve ingested too much. You can also try chewing on a peppercorn to ease the effects of an edible.
How To Properly Dose Edibles
In a scientific article on harm reduction published in the Journal of Addiction Research and Theory, the authors of the paper make the case that “being knowledgeable, thoughtful and well-prepared for using drugs, pretty well any drug, minimizes the risks and dangerousness of the experience, and maximizes positive aspects of the experience.”
That’s sound advice. Nearly everyone who has used edibles has had at least one experience where they experienced some discomfort for one reason or another, but with a little knowledge and preparation, you can ensure that your experience is enjoyable. (If you want to read the article in full, here’s the link: “Reducing the Risks of Drug Use: The Case for Set and Setting.”)
How much experience do you have with cannabis? What about edibles? How sensitive are you to THC? All of these questions are important to consider. Generally, you want to start with a low dose, wait and see what happens, and incrementally increase from there.
If you have a lot of experience with cannabis, you’ll probably be fine starting with a standard dose which is 10 mg. However, if you’ve never tried edibles before, you haven’t had a lot of experience with cannabis generally, or you have a high sensitivity to THC, you’ll want to ease into it. That may mean you won’t end up feeling much your first time. That’s ok! It’s better than taking too much and having a bad experience.
Remember the days when “edibles” only meant “hash brownies?” You know, something one of your buddies cooked up and you had no idea how much THC was in each brownie? Thankfully, those days are behind us. Now we have precision dosing and lab-tested products.
To reap the benefits of this, though, you want to read the packaging closely. It can get tricky, however, because not every edible in a package comes in a standard dose (e.g. 10 mg). You may buy some gummies and have to calculate how much THC is in each candy, only to find each candy is some odd number, like 17 mg. The best advice is to buy products that use standard doses for each unit. For example, you can find cannabis mints dosed at 5 mg or 10 mg. This makes it really easy to start with a 5 mg and increase from there, rather trying to do some hardcore math! (Don’t forget to reference the handy edible dosage chart included in this article.)
Some people like to consume edibles on an empty stomach or with alcohol because the THC will hit more powerfully on an empty stomach or with alcohol. We don’t recommend that strategy, though, because it’s much harder to predict what sort of outcome to expect.
Instead, make sure you’re well-hydrated, fed, and aren’t on any other substances that could amplify the effects.
If you follow our advice, you should have an enjoyable experience. Don’t expect the worst outcome but take precautions. You’ll want to have plenty of water (for hydration) and a few items on hand in case you do consume too much and you want to temper the effects.
Two essential items are CBD or black pepper. If you feel too high, you can smoke or vape a high-CBD strain, and it will ease the intensity of the THC. Same goes for black pepper. No joke. (Don’t smoke the pepper!) You can chew black peppercorns and feel relief within an hour or less.
This isn’t an old wives tale. It’s backed by scientific literature. Black pepper has terpenes that can attenuate the effects of THC — but don’t take our word for it. In “Taming THC”, an Aug. 2011 article in the British Journal of Pharmacology, scientists explain how terpenes can contribute positively to the “entourage effect,” and how there are terpenes in pepper that can ease the effects of THC.
When you consume an edible, especially if it’s your first time, be sure to do it in an environment where you feel safe and comfortable, like your home with friends around (preferably ones who’ve used edibles before). Avoid consuming edibles in environments that are unfamiliar to you that could negatively impact your experience.
This is the most important advice when it comes to edibles. Start low and go slow. You can always increase the dose later, but it’s harder to reverse the dose after you’ve already consumed it.
The standard dose is 10 mg. People who use edibles a lot will laugh at that dosage because there are plenty of people who have no issues consuming 100 mg, 200 mg, or even more. If you get to a point where you need to consume at least 100 mg to feel anything, you’re using too often and should probably consider taking a break. Sure, there are exceptions, but from a scientific perspective, 100 mg is a lot of THC. Chronic pain studies have shown that the ideal dose for most people who are looking to relieve pain (and not necessarily get high) is under 10 mg.
If you’re pretty experienced with cannabis, you should be fine starting with 10 mg, a standard dose, less if you’re female. If you’re a newbie or THC-sensitive, start with half or a quarter of a standard dose. Again, don’t mix edibles with alcohol or other drugs, including over-the-counter, prescription, or illicit. We can’t stress this enough: have the edible dosage chart handy before you imbibe.
This one’s simple. Be patient. Unlike smoking cannabis which affects you near-instantaneously, edibles take a while before you feel the effects. It really depends on your weight, metabolism, and diet, but it can be as fast as 15 – 30 minutes and as long as 90 minutes.
We hope this guide allows you to enjoy your edibles experience! Remember to review the edible dosage chart before you embark on your journey.
Factors Which Influence The Effects Of Cannabis Edibles
Compared to other methods for ingesting cannabis, edibles are notable for their high potency and levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Although they take longer to set in, the psychoactive effects of edibles are more intense and last longer than other methods. While the effects of smoking or vaping will typically take a few minutes to set in and last for 1-3 hours, edibles typically need between 60-90 minutes to take effect, and can last from 6-8 hours.
The Type Of Cannabis Edible
The type of edible that you take will also affect the onset, length and duration of your experience. Edibles with a high THC content will obviously have a more potent effect. Always be sure to check the label of your edible to see how much THC you are consuming and what the recommended serving size is. Apart from the THC content, the form of the edible also matters.
Edibles like hard candy, lozenges and gum are quicker to take effect than others because they are absorbed through the mucus membranes in your mouth. Edibles like baked goods that travel to the stomach before being broken down by the liver take longer as it takes more time for your body to process them.
How Much Food Is In The User’s Stomach
It’s generally advised for edible consumers to eat a meal before taking an edible. This is because the effects of the edible will be much more potent on an empty stomach, hitting quicker and harder. Beginners especially should be sure to heed this advice as eating an edible on an empty stomach may make them feel uneasy or nauseous.
It’s important to eat beforehand instead of after consuming an edible. Eating a meal after consuming an edible can sometimes have the opposite of intended effect – actually increasing the potency of the cannabis that is already in your system. As is always the rule with edibles, start small and wait at least an hour or two before deciding to consume more. It’s much easier to increase dosage gradually than decrease it after the fact.
The User’s Metabolism Rate
Metabolizing cannabis increases the potency of the effects. Dispensary edibles are typically made with more advanced methods utilizing a cannabis distillate, such an odorless and flavorless oil, or cannabinoid crystals. In order to be effective, these ingredients will be infused into the edible by pairing them with a fat to bond to – butter or oil are most commonly used for this purpose. Cannabis butter or oil can also be made at home using ground flower instead of dispensary-grade distillates.
Because the cannabis is being digested and processed the same as regular food, your rate of metabolism can also have an effect on your experience. Consumers with high rates of metabolism are likely to feel the effects of cannabis edibles more quickly than those with low rates of metabolism. Similarly, the effects will have a shorter duration for consumers with a high metabolism, as the cannabis is processed and broken down by the body quicker.
