Eating cannabis has the potential to get you stoned beyond the normal high you experience when smoking, which is why it’s important that you are careful with your marijuana dose.  You can easily become overwhelmed and potentially too stoned if you don’t pay attention to your marijuana dosage amounts.  Even a weaker weed has the ability to send you into orbit and potentially ruin your experience.  Therefore, it is important to respect the strength and amount of cannabis you’re preparing and/or eating.

While it is easy for a joint smoker to regulate their dose from toke to toke, once you have ingested marijuana, there is nothing you can do about it.  Therefore, it is important for the cannabis consumer to be able to measure and control the effect of each weed cookie or weed brownie before they eat it.  To know what you’re consuming, you should be aware of the amount and the strength of the marijuana dose you have used. If you do smoke, then a little test toke of the weed you intend to use should help you know the potency of what you’re cooking with.
