Every person’s endocannabinoid system is specific, like a fingerprint, which is why there is no universal cannabis experience. An edible with 5 milligrams of THC can rock one person’s consciousness while barely registering in someone else’s.

The resulting onset can occur up to two hours after ingestion, with the peak of the high occurring 2 – 3 hours after the onset. The effects can then linger for up to 24 hours, depending on the dosage.  Whether inhaled or ingested, both highs can be mesmerizingly intoxicating or mild and manageable. Knowing your dose is key.  If you’re ready to compare notes with your own experiences, or you’re new to cannabis and aren’t sure what to expect, the stoned spectrum can bridge the gap between the effects you and others may similarly feel.
