The Compassionate Budtender #JustSayKnow

KindPeoples in Santa Cruz has great edible inforgraphics!

Go Low and Slow/KindPeoples

I love this easy infographic from the brilliant brain of Elise McDonough, PR Specialist at KindPeoples in Santa Cruz. Elise is also a former Edibles Editor at High Times Magazine and the author of “The Official High Times Cookbook.”

Adding my two cents for newbies, since I’m so protective of you and want to prevent you from making the terrible mistake of overdoing it with edibles which could very well scare you off of cannabis medicine entirely because it IS NOT FUN:

*Rate symptoms before starting

*Lower and Slower! Start at 2.5mg for newbies – or for any new edible.
(While 5 – 15mg is considered a starter dose, many people do really well with microdosing.)

*Put the edible up and away in between doses, so you are NOT tempted to nibble more!

*After two hours, rate symptoms again.

*If needed, dose up another 2.5mg. As Korova says on their packaging, ‘You Can Always Take More, but You Can’t Take Less!”

*Keep your edible wrappers away from pets! If they go into your garbage, DON’T put wrappers in there. Tie them up in another bag and put them directly outside in the dumpster.

*If you get too high, remember the three things I always tell Newbies!

I have to admit, researching the myriad ways pharmaceutical drugs are effing things up was beyond sobering and I had to close the computer and walk away many times. It’s very personal for me — because for every one of those stories, I’ve met with countless patients at the bar who are seeking relief not only from pain, but side effects, decreasing effectiveness and, should they try to come off the drugs, the crippling withdrawal of opioids. The good news is: cannabis is a non-addictive, effective alternative. CBD helps by blocking the opioid reward center, making withdrawal more manageable.
