    Start Low, Go Slow


    When you first try vapourizing cannabis, or if you are trying a new variety, start with 1 inhalation and wait 15 minutes before consuming more. Increase by 1 inhalation every 15-30 minutes until optimal dose is achieved. Observe how your symptoms are affected and how your mind and mood feel, before deciding to take more. 


    It’s even more important to start low, go slow when ingesting cannabis. Consult the dosing guidance on your product, and if you are unsure you should call your medical cannabis provider or healthcare professional for guidance.
