FAQs about THC Candies
What are good first time THC candies?
For those new to THC candies, products with low doses of THC are the safest choice, allowing you to control your intake and gradually gauge your body's response. Here are a few suggestions that are generally well-received by first-time users:
- Trippin Balls: These are gummies covered with cherry chocolate, with 50mg THC per ball, making them easy to dose.
- Sucker Punch THC Lollipops: These come in various flavors and have a moderate dose of THC (50mg of THC each).
What is the average time for THC candies to kick in?
The onset time for THC candies, and edibles in general, can vary depending on several factors, including individual metabolism, body mass, and whether the person has eaten other food recently. However, in general, the effects of THC candies typically start to be felt about 30 minutes to 2 hours after ingestion.
It's important to note that this is considerably slower than the onset of effects from smoking or vaping cannabis, which is almost immediate. Because of this, it's easy for people, especially those new to THC edibles, to consume more than they intended because they don't feel the effects right away.
Remember to start with a low dose, especially if you're new to THC candies, and wait at least a couple of hours before consuming more.
What is the recommended dosage for THC candies?
The recommended dosage for THC candies is generally "start low and go slow." It's advised to begin with a low dose, especially if you're new to cannabis or have a low tolerance. Start with a small piece or a low-dose candy (e.g., 5-10mg of THC) and wait at least 1-2 hours to assess the effects before consuming more. Gradually increase the dosage as needed, keeping in mind the desired effects, your tolerance, and any medical guidance you may have received.
What are the effects of THC candies?
THC candies can produce a range of effects, including relaxation, euphoria, heightened sensory perception, and increased appetite. The specific effects may vary depending on the individual, the THC potency, and the dosage consumed. It's important to note that THC is psychoactive and may cause intoxicating effects, so it's advisable to consume THC candies responsibly and in a comfortable setting.
How do THC candies work?
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis. When THC candies are consumed, the THC is absorbed through the digestive system and metabolized by the liver. The liver converts THC into a metabolite called 11-hydroxy-THC, which is more potent and has a longer-lasting effect than THC itself. The metabolite then enters the bloodstream and interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the brain and other parts of the body, producing the desired effects.
