If you have made a purchase from a licensed dispensary, they should be required to label all of their products with concentrations and lab results.

The amount of time that edibles take to kick in varies from person to person. It can change based on individual BMI and metabolism, the potency of the edible, and what you’ve eaten before taking an edible.

A good rule of thumb to avoid greening out is to wait at least 2-3 hours after you’ve eaten an edible before increasing your dose.

The type of food you eat with your edible can impact the edible’s kick-in speed. Fatty foods and healthy oils help the edibles absorb into your system, and higher concentrations of THC can then enter your bloodstream.

If you eat healthy oils or fatty foods with your cannabis edibles, you may feel faster and more potent effects.

CBD novices may feel effects after consuming 5-10mg CBD.

The standard single serving recommendation for CBD is 20-30mg CBD.
