Dosing Info

If you’re unsure of your tolerance with cannabis edibles, only eat 1/2 or 1/4 of a brownie until you’ve better tested your tolerance.

It can take 2-3 hours for a brownie (or any cannabis edible) to set in, especially on a full stomach, so it’s not recommended to eat more edibles in that period. You can always eat more edibles, but you can’t take them back!

Note: The best weed brownies start with high-quality cannabutter! If your cannabutter isn’t great to start, your brownies won’t be as good as they could be. Learn how to make the best weed butter so you know the exact potency you’re working with!
