How Many Milligrams of THC Should I eat?

When buying edibles, dosages typically come in 5 mg or 10 mg amounts, particularly gummies. Other types of edibles, like chocolate bars or baked goods may come in much larger dosages that are intended to be broken or cut apart, so make sure you know the dosage you’re dealing with before diving in face first. Starting with a gummy or something you can easily parse out the dosage of is a great way to get started with edibles. Here’s a chart of dosages and what you can expect from them:

1 to 2.5 milligrams

  • Who the dose is for: First time users who are dipping their toe into THC edibles or those looking for a micro dose.

5 milligrams

  • Who the dose is for: Recreational use for beginners or those with known lower tolerance.

10 milligrams

  • Who the dose is for: Experienced THC users, recreational consumers, could induce unwanted effects in unfamiliar users.

20 milligrams

  • Who the dose is for: THC users who have developed a significant tolerance.

25 milligrams or higher

  • Who the dose is for: High-tolerance, daily THC users with experience in using higher doses.
