WARNING: If ingesting cannabis, be aware that because it takes longer to enter the bloodstream, it takes longer for the effects to surface. This can lead to the consumption of more cannabis than intended, which can result in a much stronger intoxication than intended.

There are some risks associated with
frequent cannabis consumption.

If you have any pre-existing health conditions or are experiencing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or paranoia after consuming cannabis, speak with your health care provider immediately.

 

The higher the THC potency in a product, the higher the risk of experiencing negative effects.

Always read labels to understand the THC potency of your product and ensure you are starting with low dosages and increasing them slowly.
