The Best Tips for Starters

Every beginners has to start somewhere. Cannabis can be enjoyed in many ways, but if you are new to the game, you need to know a lot of things before they start using it. There are tips and tricks that you need to know to find that perfect first-time experience. Below are the basic recommendations for beginners and low tolerance consumers.

Firstly, you need to know what method fits for you as a newbie. The most common method is to smoke it. One advantage to smoking is dose-control, where you can easily take small amounts and the acute effects commonly subside in 20 to 30 minutes after.


Another is vaporizing, which is the most ideal method for new users. Vapor is easy on the throat and lungs, easy to dose and it can better preserved the flavor of the strain. Unlike table-top vaporizers which gives larger portions at once, you can start with a portable oil-filled vaporizer pen as it allows you to take a hit as needed.


Another method is ingesting cannabis, and edibles are a fantastic way. However, you still need to start slow at a low dose of 5 mg and work your way up to the standard 10 to 20 mg. The effects can take up to 1 to 2 hours and they tend to be more intense and long-lasting than inhaled cannabis.

Settle with those strains that has less than 15% THC because they provide a less overwhelming experience. Amounts of THC can vary to every flower or even to every harvest, depending on how they are grown, so it is important to use those lab-tested weed.

What works for one may not be the same for the next because there is an additional variability that comes with every individual’s unique brain chemistry and subjective experience.

If it has more than 20% THC content, then it might be too potent for you as a beginner.
