If you’re looking for a discreet way to enjoy THC, THC gummies might be your ticket. Cannabis gummies produce long-lasting and generally desirable effects as long as you know your dosage.

However, cannabis edibles like gummies can produce unwanted effects if you’re not careful. Fortunately, the unpleasant effects can be avoided if you know the best dose for you.

THC Gummies: A Brief Introduction

THC gummies are edible treats infused with THC, and they’ve become pretty popular.

Coming in sweet, sour, and even spicy varieties, gummies are infused with a precise amount of THC. They’re carefully made to ensure consistency, so you don’t have to worry about messing up your dosage.

They’re also super discreet and especially popular for consumption in public. THC gummies look like and can be eaten just like any other gummy or candy, so you can enjoy them on the go without drawing unwanted attention.

THC and the Endocannabinoid System

The THC in cannabis products interacts with your endocannabinoid system (ECS) by binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors. This allows it to have various effects on your mind and body. Some of these effects are desirable, while others aren’t so much.

On one side, THC has been known to have positive effects* for most users who understand what they’re taking. However, it’s important to note that THC can also potentially trigger paranoia and anxiety in certain individuals*.

So, while THC offers potential benefits when it reacts with your ECS, it’s crucial to be aware of its possible drawbacks.

THC Dosage: Factors to Consider

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to THC dosage. Everyone reacts differently, and the edible experience you have with your gummies depends on factors like:

Body Weight and Chemistry

Your body weight can influence the distribution and metabolizing of THC. You’ll likely need higher THC doses if you have a higher body weight to achieve an equal effect.

Individual chemistry, like liver enzymes and cannabinoid receptors, can vary among individuals, impacting how THC interacts with the body.


A faster metabolism often processes THC quickly, resulting in a potentially shorter duration of effects. A slower metabolism processes THC slower, leading to a longer-lasting and potentially stronger experience.

Consumption Method

THC and cannabis edibles, like gummies, take longer to take effect compared to CBD tinctures or vapes. Patience is key when using edibles because they need time to kick in.


Your tolerance to THC can vary based on your previous cannabis use, body weight, and metabolism. A high tolerance needs a higher edible dose. Start with a low edible dosage, and gradually adjust until you find your ideal amount.

Desired Effect

When eating THC gummies, consider what you’re trying to achieve when using THC. Different doses of THC can produce varying effects, so always consider what you’re looking for, like relaxation or enhanced creativity.*

How to Determine the Right THC Gummy Dosage

Set Your Goals

Know what you want to accomplish by taking THC gummies before you purchase them. Your dosage amount will impact the effect the gummies have. A subtle sense of relaxation might only require a half gummy or single gummy, but a more intense experience will likely require two gummies.

Know Your THC Tolerance

If this is your first time experimenting with cannabis-infused edibles or you have a low tolerance, start with a small dose. Beginning with a dose that’s too high can result in negative outcomes. Taking it slow allows you to gauge your tolerance and avoid overconsumption.

Start Small

We suggest starting with half of one of our gummies, or approximately 2.5 mg of THC. Assess the outcome, and gradually increase the dosage if needed until you achieve the desired effect.

Don’t Jump the Gun

The effects of edibles like THC gummies can take 30 minutes to 2 hours or even longer to kick in. If you don’t feel the effects immediately, resist the temptation to consume more. Let your initial dose take full effect before eating additional gummies.

Tips for Consuming THC Gummies

Keeping a few essential tips in mind can help ensure a positive and enjoyable experience:

  • Verify legality: Check your local regulations regarding cannabis in your area. THC gummy legality varies across the United States, so be aware of local laws.
  • Create a comfortable environment: Beginners should choose a safe and familiar environment to consume their THC gummies. This helps reduce the likelihood of undesired effects so you can relax and enjoy the experience.
  • Stay hydrated: Remember to drink plenty of water when consuming THC gummies. Adequate hydration supports overall well-being and helps maintain a balanced experience.
  • Be patient: Avoid the temptation to consume more too soon. Allow enough time for your initial dose to kick in before eating more.
  • Understand potential side effects: It’s essential to be aware of the potential side effects of consuming too many gummies. Know your limits, start with a low dosage, and be prepared for possible effects such as drowsiness or increased heart rate.*
