• Clear your schedule and find a safe place, preferably with an experienced or sober friend nearby

  • Eat a good meal and drink fluids, just as you would before a night of drinking alcohol

  • Start with a dose of no more than 1.5 - 5 mg

  • If you don't feel anything, don't sample more edibles for at least 2 hours. Better yet, wait a day or more and then up your initial dose by 5 or 10 mg. Do this until you find a level that is comfortable

  • IF YOU GET TOO HIGH - DON'T PANIC! Rest, drink fluids and distract yourself until the feeling passes, which should happen within a few hours.

  • It is not a bad idea to have THC-free snacks on hand after you take edibles, especially because it is hard to be satisfied with just one cookie or caramel 

  • Drink water, relax, and stay away from driving or operating any kind of motorized vehicle

  • If you are new to edibles perhaps consider microdosing - taking very small amounts at a time like a bite of a cookie, or a quarter to half a teaspoon of coconut oil
