Dosing Edibles in Arkansas


The THC content of edibles is an important factor in choosing your dosage. 

This can range anywhere from 10mg up into the 1,000’s and will play a key role in how strong the effects are. Edibles also take a significantly longer time to kick in, and the effects will last much longer as they are absorbed through the digestive system. 


Because you are processing the cannabis from your small intestine, new metabolites will be produced, and additional psychoactive compounds will be activated. This is in part, what makes edibles so much stronger than traditional consumption methods. 


It can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to begin feeling the effects. So if you have taken an edible and do not feel the effects right away, wait. 


Nearly all edible horror stories include “I didn’t feel anything, so I took another”. This can be easily avoided by being patient.


Everyone’s biological profile is different, and cannabis will interact with people in individual and unique ways that might not produce the same experience for everyone across the board.  Since the high from cannabis can be unique to you, it’s best to take things slow. 


How much you’ve eaten, your metabolism, and your tolerance are only a few things that can influence how long it will take for edibles to activate in your system, and how strong the experience will be. 

The common starting dosage for an edible is around 10 mg. 

If you are new to edibles or cannabis altogether, it’s best to start with a smaller dose, as you can always increase your dosage. 


Those with a higher tolerance and familiarity may need a larger dosage to feel the effects.
