If you are a “first-time” user of cannabis products or are trying a particular type of cannabis product or brand for the first time, it is recommended to start with either a small amount of cannabis or a cannabis product that has a low THC or CBD level. This is especially important with regards to edibles and beverages which take much longer to feel the effects of the cannabinoids. Once you have consumed a small amount and are waiting to see how body and mind are reacting you should then proceed slowly in consuming more cannabis so that you are in control of the process and the effects on your body.
