Every body is different
Before we geek out on the fun stuff, let’s get something out of the way: Your journey with edibles probably won’t look like your partner’s or your friends’ or your budtender’s. While the sensation of being “high” is relatively easy to pinpoint, the way your body processes THC (that’s the psychoactive compound in cannabis that makes you feel high) is wonderfully unique.
“Any sort of product recommendation that we build together for a consumer is going to be tailored specifically to that individual,” Cooper says. “Everybody’s body is different, and everybody’s reaction to cannabis and cannabinoid therapy is different.”
So, how do you figure out what’s right for your body? Having an open conversation with your budtender is a good place to start. You don’t have to spill your life story, but you should feel comfortable being open and honest about past experiences and future expectations.
“You should discuss any food intolerances that you may have and your own personal goals for the experience intended,” Dee says. “Express if your tolerance for cannabinoids is at novice, experienced or expert level.”
