Cannabis Edible Dosages: How Much Is Too Much To Take?

When it comes to cannabis, there is no one-size-fits-all. Different people react differently to different dosages, making it tough to determine the right amount for you. Cannabis edibles are especially tricky, as they can take a while to kick in, and the effects can last much longer than smoking or vaping.


So how much is too much when it comes to cannabis edibles? Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Cannabis affects everyone differently, and what might be a manageable dose for one person could be too much for another. However, some general guidelines can be followed to help you find the right dosage.


This article will look at some of the different dosages of cannabis dispensary edibles and how they can affect you. We’ll also explore what to do if you’ve eaten just a little too much.

Different Dosages of Cannabis Edibles


When it comes to cannabis edibles, there is a wide range of different dosages available to consumers. Cannabis-infused food can be found in everything from candy and baked goods to main dishes at cannabis-fusion restaurants and even non-food items like lotions, oils, salves, tinctures, and medicinal products.


The amount of cannabis in each edible or product depends on the recipe and the strength of the cannabis being used. Cannabis edibles can be made with everything from low-quality weed to high-potency or indoor-grown strains that are much more expensive. This is why it’s important to know how potent your edibles are and what exactly is in them before you ingest them.


Generally speaking, most cannabis edibles will fall into one of three categories:


  • Low-dose edibles: These edibles contain between 2.5 to 10mg of THC. Low-dose edibles are a good choice for people new to cannabis or who want to avoid any psychoactive effects.
  • Medium-dose edibles: These edibles contain between 10 to 20mg of THC. Medium-dose edibles are a good choice for people who have some experience with cannabis and want to feel its effects at an experienced level that their tolerance won’t inhibit.
  • High-dose edibles: These edibles contain more than 20mg of THC. These are for long-time THC users. High-dose edibles are not recommended for people new to cannabis, as they can be overwhelming.

Cannabis Edibles and Your Body


Cannabis edibles can take a while to kick in, as they need to be digested before the THC will have an effect. Depending on how much you’ve eaten, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours for the effects of cannabis edibles to set in.


Once you have started to feel the effects, they can last for several hours. The amount of time depends on several factors, including how much you’ve eaten, your individual physiology, and your history with cannabis products and resulting tolerance to them. Although, in general, you can expect the effects of cannabis edibles to last anywhere from four to six hours.

Side Effects of High Cannabis Edible Dosages


Cannabis edibles are safe for most people, but there are some potential side effects to be aware of. The most common side effects include dry mouth, fatigue, and dizziness. These side effects are usually mild and go away on their own after a few hours.


In rare cases, people have reported more serious side effects after taking high doses of cannabis edibles. These side effects can include anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis. If you experience any of these side effects, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately.


What To Do If You’ve Taken Too Much Cannabis


If you’ve taken too much cannabis in edible form, the best thing to do is to relax and ride it out. Cannabis edibles can take a while to kick in, so you may not feel the full effects for some time. Once the effects do set in, they can last for several hours.


If you start to feel anxious or paranoid, try to distract yourself and focus on something else. Drink some water and eat healthy food to help your body process THC. Avoid caffeine, as it can make the effects of cannabis more intense. If you’re still feeling uncomfortable after a few hours, you can try taking an over-the-counter medication like ibuprofen or cimetidine. These medications can help reduce the effects of THC.


If you’re still feeling bad after a few hours, or if you start to experience hallucinations or delusions, it’s important to seek emergency medical attention. Cannabis edibles can occasionally, although rarely, cause psychotic episodes in people who are susceptible to them. If you think you might be having a psychotic episode, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. For this reason, it is usually also best to not participate in recreational cannabis use alone.
