The million dollar question, and our best answer to it.
We’ll start off with something familiar to many of our customers, shopping inside. At this time we are able to accommodate customers inside the facility, though things have changed a little bit. We do ask that you wear a mask when inside the facility. Once inside we take your body temperature with a no contact thermometer, scan your state ID, and you’re in! Easy peasy right? Our staff takes extra care to wipe down the lobby’s frequently touched surfaces, as well as keeping track of how many people are in the building to ensure reduced risk for everyone. Budtenders inside are limited, but service is not. Customer service is a priority here and the chance to ask questions and get personalized recommendations on the spot in our retail setting it’s definitely worth the wait!
When you inhale cannabis smoke the height effects can be felt almost instantaneously. When you eat an edible, meaning anything that goes from your mouth to your stomach, your metabolism comes into play. People with faster metabolism’s may experience the onset of the edible high sooner than people with slower metabolisms. We recommend taking edibles after a meal so the digestive processes have already begun. Edibles on an empty stomach typically hit harder and faster being the only thing your stomach has to process. Eating before hand insurers a smoother longer lasting high.
Because these factors are different for everyone, and the time of digestion can vary so much from person to person, people often take more than they intended to. Being a serving after serving as a quick way to end up uncomfortable. Always ask questions and read your product before consuming. Often times packages will give you the recommended dosage and how much of the product you need to eat to achieve that dose. My portion in your edible as soon as you open the package, it makes dosing more precise, and you’re less likely do you have an undesirable experience.
Speaking of undesirable experiences, they do happen even to the best of us. Just because you have a high tolerance smoking does not mean edibles affect you in the same way. So what happens if you’ve taken too much and you don’t feel so great? Breathe! Take some deep calming breaths and focus. Try to eat something sweet, low blood sugar is often plays a roll in ill affects, and if all else fails, reach for CBD. A recent study suggests that CBD may lessen the effects of anxiety and paranoia associated with THC consumption.
