8 Tips For Avoiding Common Cannabis Consumption Mistakes

No matter how careful you are, there’s a chance you’ll make a mistake while consuming cannabis. Even if you’re an experienced smoker, there are still things you can do to avoid common cannabis consumption mistakes.

This article will outline eight tips for avoiding these mistakes. Follow these tips, and you’ll be able to enjoy your cannabis experience without worrying about making any mistakes. Happy smoking!

Consuming the Wrong Strain

A common mistake many people make when consuming cannabis, especially for the first time, is not knowing what strain they are consuming or consuming the wrong strain. If you are new to cannabis, you might assume that all strains are the same. This isn’t the case.

If you want to relax and feel lazy, you should consume indica. Meanwhile, sativa is best for reducing symptoms of anxiety. More importantly, different strains have different levels of THC concentrations.

Using the Wrong Consumption Method

Another incredibly common mistake those new to cannabis make is using the wrong consumption method. Most people assume all cannabis consumption methods are the same since the end goal is getting high. However, different consumption methods have different duration of effects as well as different onset times.

The correct method of consumption depends on the desired effect. If the goal is to experience the psychoactive effects of cannabis, then smoking cannabis by using a bong or vaping is the best option. However, if the goal is to experience the medicinal benefits of cannabis without the high, consuming it orally as an oil or tincture is a better choice. Regardless of the desired effect, it is important to use the correct method of consumption to avoid unpleasant side effects.

Consuming Too Much

Consuming too much is probably the most common mistake new cannabis consumers make. Many people don’t know their limits when first starting and often consume way too much or at least more than they are ready for. Couple this with the fact that there are different strains, and you might get incredibly high from just two puffs of high-quality cannabis. Always start slow if you want a pleasant experience.

Not Knowing When to Consume More

The previous common mistake leads to this one: not knowing when to consume more. As mentioned above, different cannabis consumption methods have different onset times, so knowing how long you should expect to feel the effects is important. However, many people will smoke a joint and then smoke some after 5 minutes because they don’t feel anything, only to get really high 10 minutes later.

Not Preparing

It might seem strange, but if you are new to cannabis, you might want to prepare before you consume, which is a mistake many people make. When you get high, chances are that you will be really thirsty and incredibly hungry. Before consuming, you should ensure you have snacks and a bottle of water.

Not Buying from Licensed Dispensary

One of the biggest mistakes many people make when consuming cannabis is not buying from a licensed dispensary. As cannabis is legalized more and more around the world, dispensaries are opening up that sell the best cannabis you can find. When you buy from a dealer, you can expect the quality to be consistent, and you never know what has been laced with the cannabis. More importantly, the staff working there will know what you need.

Not Consuming in a Safe Place

Much like not preparing when consuming cannabis for the first few times, a big mistake many new to cannabis make is not consuming in a safe place. Your first-time experience with cannabis will probably be overwhelming, and the last thing you want is to be in an unfamiliar environment while disliking the feeling and becoming anxious. Hence, always consume in a safe place to avoid a bad experience.

Not Knowing Why You are Consuming

Lastly, a common mistake many make is not knowing why they are consuming. This isn’t inherently bad, but you should treat cannabis medicinally for the best results, especially if you are trying to treat something. For example, if you are trying to treat symptoms of anxiety and depression, you don’t need a lot of cannabis; research shows that too much cannabis can actually cause anxiety and paranoia.
