Start Low, Go Slow

Stay in your lane and keep your wits about you-
a guide to careful cannabis exploration.

What’s the rush?

Every individual’s system is unique to them, meaning different varietals will affect people in a variety of ways. Whatever you are trying, the best course of action is to start with a low dosage of THC and go slow, allowing ample time for the effects to kick in. For newbies, consider lower intensity varietals to start. We recommend starting with level 1 products before exploring levels 2 and 3. Use a strain journal to make note of what works for you and what doesn’t.

Here’s a chart that highlights ideal starting doses:



Dried Flower
1 – 2 inhalations of dried cannabis that is low in THC and high in CBD


Start with just one 2.5 mg (THC) capsule


Start with just one 2.5 mg spritz (THC)


Just Breathe

It’s important. You do it a least we hope you do. Deep breathing, that is. With some methods, like a joint or pipe, hold the smoke in the mouth to cool it down before inhaling. Then release it slowly. There is no need to hold the smoke in the lungs to get “the effect.”
