HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR PERFECT DOSE
If you’re new to THC Cannabis (or haven’t experienced it in a long time), the most important thing to understand is that its effect is determined not only by the strength of how much you take but also by your individual body chemistry. In short, it affects everyone slightly differently. Some people feel a significant effect with as little as 2mg of THC; others require 100mg. And some may not feel the effects at all. It’s all based upon many factors, such as your weight, metabolism, the food you’ve consumed, and your unique endocannabinoid system.
So, until you know what dosage works for you, the golden rule is START LOW AND GO SLOW.
The first step in the process is to determine the total amount of THC for you (for one night) that works best. You simply want to find your Goldy Locks Zone. You don’t want to be too affected nor feel too little, but “just the right amount” to make the experience pleasurable. Remember, you can always drink more, but you can’t drink less once you’ve consumed too much.
If you’re new to cannabis (or mildly experienced), we recommend that you start with a small serving of THC and work your way up and evaluate how you feel as you go.
Start with one glass that contains 5mg or 10mg of THC. You should feel something in about 15 minutes after consumption. However, the effects will slowly start to increase over the next 60 to 120 minutes and reach a peak before they start to subside. Total time for the experience will vary by individual, but typically it lasts about 4 to 6 hours. At this point, you don’t want to take any more (Even if you don’t feel anything). Everyone reacts differently to THC in terms of its time frame and potency. You want to ensure you understand how long and how strong your individual body takes to feel its effects.
Repeat the Process
The next step is to repeat this dosage experiment one or more days later. If you experienced too much of an effect, cut back. If you didn’t experience much of anything, increase the THC dosage. Keep repeating these titration experiments until you’ve got a good sense of what your ideal dose is. Following this method should prevent you from being in the unpleasant position of taking too much. You’ve most likely already done this for alcohol-based drinks. As a result, you know if you’re a one-glass, two-glass, or three-glass per-night person. You probably figured this out with alcohol so long ago that it’s just instinctive to you now. You simply need to acquire this same level of knowledge and ability for cannabis drinks.
And if you’re a frequent or expert cannabis user and you already know your dosage sweet spot, we say GO FOR IT!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FEEL SOMETHING
Unlike most cannabis edible products, we have developed our products using nano-emulsification technology. The significance of this is that this method allows the product to take effect much faster (in as little as 15 minute). The process is relatively complicated, but essentially we are simply using sound waves to break down the THC oil droplets into many tiny droplets so that they are absorbed much faster by the digestive.
Our goal with this technology was to make the timing of the THC effect similar to the timing of an alcohol-based drink. To assist us in this goal, we conducted a user study to determine how our product compared to traditional THC edibles as well as alcohol-based drinks. The results are reflected in the chart below. However, we want to emphasize that the lines on this chart reflect the average of the various subjects experiences. In other words, some subjects experienced results quicker and some subjects experienced effects that took longer. Some highlights of this chart are:
• If you look at the orange line you’ll see that a typical THC edible product can take several hours for the effects to be felt and it can last many hours.
• On the other hand, if you look at the green line you’ll see that on average it only took 15 minutes for the Hemp Beverage Company product (derived from nano-emulsification) to feel the effects and that it wore off on average in 4 hours.
• Finally, if you look at the blue line, you’ll see the effects of the Hemp Beverage Company products to be similar to consuming alcohol ) minus the calories and hangover, of course)
Taken correctly, the Cannabis Mocktail Creator can be a great alternative to alcohol-based drinks because there is no alcohol hangover, you are in charge of determining just the right amount of THC for you and you can create the perfect drink to suit your palate.
