- Start low and go slow. Start with a very small amount, especially if you’re new to cannabis, trying a new product or using a new method of consumption.
- Consider higher CBD content in products. New users should opt for mild THC levels or choose products with higher CBD levels to counter some of the euphoric effects of THC.
- Try lower-risk alternatives other than combustion inhalation (smoking). Holding cannabis smoke in your lungs during inhalation may increase the health risks.
- Consume a very small amount with edibles and wait at least an hour to gauge effects. A small amount can produce an intense effect.
- Avoid cannabis before the age of 25 as it may affect brain development.
- Never drive after or while consuming cannabis. Cannabis products containing THC will produce impairment in motor skills, cognition and decision-making abilities.
- Avoid consuming cannabis if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
- Avoid consuming cannabis if you are at risk for mental health issues, such as having a family or personal history of psychosis or substance misuse.
- Avoid mixing cannabis and alcohol, as it increases impairment.
- Avoid mixing cannabis with tobacco, as it increases the health risks and the likelihood of dependency.
- Keep cannabis safely out of the reach of children and pets.
- Do not smoke cannabis with a child in the home. Second-hand smoke is a health risk.
