Trying topicals for the first time can be intimidating, especially if you don’t have any experience using cannabis products. If you are concerned about getting high, we assure you that you won’t feel any intoxicating effects from using a cannabis topical.
Start with a Small Amount
We recommend all beginners start slow with all cannabis products. While the consequences of rubbing in too much lotion or balm aren’t as severe as an edible, users could still experience an adverse reaction like a breakout or rash.
First-timers should start with a small, dime-sized amount and rub it in thoroughly. Then observe the effect to make sure their skin tolerates the new product.
Observe the Effects
Finding the ideal amount of cannabis topical is challenging. Everyone is different, and we don’t have a precise formula for success yet. We recommend that beginners monitor the effects and increase the dosage once they are comfortable taking a small amount.
Cannabis storage is extremely important. Direct sunlight will degrade the cannabis compounds. Users should ensure their products are properly sealed in a safe, cool, dry place.
