9 August 2021 • 0 min read

Everyone’s response to cannabis differs and can vary from one time to the next. To minimize your risk or if you are a new consumer, look for a product containing 2.5 mg of THC or less or 10% THC (100 mg/g) or less, and an equal or higher amount of CBD.

  • Common immediate effects of THC includes Euphoria (“high”); drowsiness; anxiety; impaired ability to remember, concentrate or react quickly.
  • Smoking/vaping cannabis causes effects to surface within seconds to minutes. These effects can last up to 6 hours
  • Eating/drinking/swallowing cannabis can cause effects to rise within 30 minutes to 2 hours of consumption. These effects can last up to 12 hours
  • Some effects can last as long as 24 hours
