CANNABIS USE RECOMMENDATIONS

Medical Cannabis
There is no lethal dose with cannabis. Even though it’s a very safe drug, the patient has to experiment to determine their own dose. Just start slow and medicate step by step.

In case of any fungal contamination of dried flowers, it is highly recommended to avoid smoking or vaporizing the product. You may be contracting respiratory diseases.

If THC levels identified in the sample are very high, take caution with dosage. If you get intoxicated and don’t feel good, keep in mind that you cannot die or have any medical issue related to what you have taken. If side effects persist, don’t try to fight against the feelings, the best way to reduce them is to accept the new perceptions that you have.

Always remember that the intensity of the desired/side effects will depend upon the substance, the dose, the situation and the person who is medicating.

If you are medicating with CBD, it's important that you know exactly how much CBD to THC ratio you're consuming. In that case, we would highly recommend you use a reliable cannabinoid level testing kit to test your favourite CBD products and edibles. You can easily and affordably test cannabinoid levels at home (i.e. without sending samples to the lab) with Alpha-cat Cannabinoid Testing Kits.

And if testing is too much work for you, we also sell various CBD and CBG products that list exact cannabinoid levels. Check out our shop for Alpha-cat CBD oil, CBD capsules, CBD crystals, CBD paste and CBG oil.
