- Research the edibles you are going to be eating: Edibles just like THC strains of marijuana or CBD oils come in many different strains and strengths. For this reason, you want to have at least a basic understanding of the different options you will see when you go to the dispensary to buy your first edibles. Most dispensaries often have a product menu on their website that you can review before going into the store as well. The two most important things you want to look for are the edibles strain and strength. In most case the edibles will either be a sativa for an indica, in some cases, it could also be a hybrid. The general rule of thumb is that sativas provided a more uppity energy filled feeling. While indicasindicators provide a more sleepy and lazy response. Hybrids obviously land in the middle is a combination of sative and indica strains. As far as strength goes as a beginner you are going to be looking for the lowest strength possible.

To be double safe if you do not feel the effects of your edible then wait until the next day and then try a little bit more than the previous day. If you are unlucky enough to eat too much.
