Start Low & Go Slow
- Be mindful of your dosing, no matter how experienced you are.
- It’s crucial to take the right dose to ensure you experience your desired effect and avoid anxiety, paranoia, or nausea that may come up if too much is consumed.
- Start with a low dose and slowly work your way up until you feel the effects you’re looking for. Listen to your body!
- This approach can help you find your sweet spot without going overboard.
- Remember: everyone’s body is different, and each person should do their due diligence to dose themselves accordingly.
Consume in a Safe & Comfortable Environment
Be sure to choose a safe and cozy environment in which to consume. When you’re in a comfortable space, it will soothe any anxiety you may have and give you freedom to express your cannabis experience however it feels best to you.
Set and setting is everything. Consider choosing an environment like your own home, or a friend’s home where it’s familiar and predictable. Additionally, it’s vital to be mindful of your mindset and nervous system beforehand. Make sure you’re feeling calm, relaxed, and regulated before partaking.
Avoid Combining Marijuana with Other Substances
Mixing marijuana with other substances can not only be dangerous, but also cause you to experience several undesired effects. Probably the most common substance people mix with marijuana is alcohol, but it is important to consider the risks.
Commonly known as “cross fading”, this combo can make it harder to think clearly, speed up your heart rate, and even cause nausea, just to name a few of the undesired effects.
Combining marijuana with specific prescription drugs can also be dangerous. This mixture can cause unexpected side effects and interactions, depending on the prescription.
Another substance to avoid mixing with marijuana is opioids. When combined, these substances suppress the central nervous system to levels that can be quite dangerous. Furthermore, this leads to decreased brain function, low blood pressure, and extreme sedation, along with many more unwanted issues.
We recommend always consulting with your doctor for any and all substance combinations.
Choose Safe & Legal Products
When it comes to choosing your products, it’s important that you know they are safe, reliable, and come from trusted sources.
Using unsafe or illegal marijuana products can put you at risk for a whole host of issues. Dangerous substances like pesticides, heavy metals, or even mold are likely to be present. Not to mention, using illegal products can put you in legal trouble and leave you with a potentially harmful experience.
Are you curious on how you can ensure you’re purchasing safe products? Not to worry, we have some tips:
- Firstly, look for products that have been third-party tested.
- This means that an independent lab has tested the product to make sure it’s free from contaminants and is accurately labeled.
- Always purchase your cannabis legally, from a trusted dispensary. You cannot ensure safety with black market cannabis products.
Luckily, we have total regulation of every product we carry in our store. You can trust us to have your back and provide only safe and regulated products.
