Trying Cannabis Edibles for the First Time


If you’re like most people, when you think of cannabis, smoking probably comes to mind. But cannabis is also enjoyed in other ways, including through edibles. If you’ve never tried cannabis edibles before, here are some tips to help you get started.

What are Cannabis Edibles?

There are many different ways to consume cannabis, but if you’re looking for an alternative that won’t make your lungs suffer then edible products might be right up your alley. Edibles work by cooking with marijuana just like how we cook food in our kitchens at home – however, these recipes have been specially developed so they’ll taste great and provide a psychoactive effect without causing any burnt tastes or smoke inhalation!

What Does it Feel Like?

When someone smokes marijuana, they experience the effects immediately. But if you eat or drink it, then your body has time to process THC before experiencing any psychoactive properties of cannabis- this means that when experimenting with dosage levels users typically feel higher than what’s normally experienced while enjoying an inhalation session!


The effects of smoking cannabis are felt much faster than those who consume edibles. After only 5-10 minutes, smokers will start feeling the side effects like sickness and dizziness while people eating an edible have a delay in experiencing these same feelings but they eventually build up to be stronger after about 10 hours total duration which can last a lot longer when using high potency products.

How Much Should I Try?

For new consumers of edibles, it’s important to start slow and go low. This means taking something with a lower dosage like 5mg or less for your first time; then increasing as desired based on how you feel after consuming them (effects). There are plenty available at Gotham that comes in these smaller servings.

What Happens If I Don’t Feel Anything?

Edibles take longer to work than other forms of ingestion, so it is important not to eat too much at first. It’s also common for people who have had a bad experience with edibles overconsumption since the effects will set in faster and be higher than expected.

What Do I Do If I Get Too High?

You might feel yourself start to panic or get excited. Don’t let your head take over! The best thing you can do at this point is to settle down with some soothing music, drink plenty of water (or try eating), and go ahead and watch TV if it helps calm down—but just remember that no one has ever died from too much cannabis even though there have been cases where people had reached toxic levels after consuming alcohol.


Edibles are a new and interesting way to experience cannabis. Dosing can be tricky, but by following these simple guidelines you will find that the high from edibles work for your body just as well if not better than smoking joints!
