Marijuana Candy Recipe Potency
On the other hand, other marijuana candies will have you set by eating just a portion. The point here is, it can be tricky to get the desired potency. So, this section will help you to accurately dose your marijuana candy.
Below is a ‘dosage calculator’ that will help you work out just how potent your candies are – or will be. Something important to keep in mind is that this calculation will only work if you are aware of the potency of the cannabis tincture being used in the world’s best marijuana candy recipe.
If you have 500mg of THC in 3 tablespoons of your cannabis tincture, and you have 20 pieces of candies being made, then your total amount of mg of THC per candy will result in 33.4 as rounded off. Ideally, you want 10mg per gummy.
The Benefits of Marijuana Candy
The goal of medical, edible cannabis is to deliver a dose that contains the most therapeutic benefit with the least negative effects. Hard-hitting THC candies of a hundred milligram may be useful for chronic issues before bed, and small cannabis hard candies are ideal for daily maintenance doses.
Cannabis-infused candies are ideal for daytime healing, as the user can enjoy longer duration of benefits without having to take multiple doses. However, if after taking your initial treatment in the morning, you feel the effects wearing off after a few hours, you may take another small cannabis hard candy at intervals throughout the day.
Furthermore, the cannabinoids contained in hard candies absorb much faster than other edibles that must be chewed and digested in order to work. So long as the cannabis candy is sucked on – and not chewed and swallowed – the therapeutic value is absorbed into the bloodstream immediately and avoids the delay of the digestive tract.
For patients with zero experience with cannabis, on the other hand, it’s best to start experimenting with marijuana candy at the lowest possible dose. Most would suggest under five milligrams. For those more familiar with the effects of THC, a ten-milligram dose will be just right.
