How to Properly Store Cannabis Edibles
It’s essential to know how to store these items properly so they last longer and no one accidentally eats them without knowing what they are. One way you can do this is by keeping them in a secured dark, dry and cool space separate from uninfused foods. If you are keeping them out to share at a 21 and over event, clearly label what is infused with cannabis and the dosage. Edibles these days taste so good that it can be hard to tell they have cannabis in them. No one likes to get high without knowledge of dosage and consent!
Tips on how to incorporate cannabis into your festivities without getting too high or paranoid
1) Keep it low dose- You can always take more if you feel like it, but be sure to wait until you feel the full effects. Watch out for overindulging; too much THC can make you feel very uncomfortable and even sick in some cases. Slow and low is the way to go, especially in social settings.
2) Be aware of what you’re eating and drinking. Mixing alcohol and cannabis is a tricky thing and something we don’t recommend. If you choose to indulge in both, make sure you have your cannabis first and see how you feel.
3) Have lots of things to munch on and drink- food tastes fantastic when you’re high, and you want to have nonalcoholic beverages on hand to get rid of dry mouth. BTW, one favorite holiday treat, chocolate, boosts the anandamide (an endogenous cannabinoid) levels in your body- which is why you feel so good when you eat it!
