Most vape pens and cartridges are pre-filled with cannabis oil, a type of cannabis concentrate. Vapes heat cannabis oil to its vaporization point, producing a potent vapor that cannabis consumers can inhale. Similar to smoking cannabis, vaporizing cannabis produces an effect within minutes that then peaks after 30 minutes or so.
Bottom line: make note of the vape’s THC percentage before you consume, take one pull on your vape pen, then wait 15 minutes before consuming more to get a sense of how that potency affects you.
Bottom line: only seasoned, highly tolerant consumers should experiment with dabbing cannabis concentrates.
Knowing your ideal THC dosage is like a weed passport. Once you’ve found the milligram range or THC percentage that works best for you, the vast world of cannabis is yours to explore. But in the same way that planning for a big trip requires time and effort, so does finding your dose.
The cannabis product you’re interested in consuming will play a large role in determining how much you need to consume to feel high.
