Everything in Moderation...Including Moderation

March 4, 2022

So, I like marijuana, as you may have noticed. Like really, really like it, and chances are you do too. Right? I like the smell of it, the taste of it, and I really love the high of it. I love it so much that sometimes I worry that maybe, just maybe I’m smoking too much. And while smoking or eating cannabis is very different than drinking alcohol, for one the high doesn’t last nearly as long and the chances of becoming addicted to marijuana are far lower than the chances of becoming an alcoholic, you still may have some concerns about your consumption. And that’s ok. You can still partake in everything you love at Altitude Dispensary and be aware of your intake. This blog will show you how.

First, my next door neighbor has started using one of those little M-F pill containers to dole out his flower for each day. I think this is genius! Really. In this way he knows exactly how much he gets to smoke each day, and knows exactly how much he does smoke each day. It’s win win. Kind of like that diet that’s all about the different colored and sized can eat as much as you want as long as it fits in the container. The same is true for all the flower that is in his little daily pill box.

Often, the problem with monitoring your marijuana consumption is simply not being aware of how much you are smoking on any given day. Sure you go to Altitude Dispensary and buy an eight or a quarter of your preferred indica or sativa, or a hybrid (my favorite) or what have you, but how long does that last you? How often are you smoking throughout the day? Portioning out your weed for the day is a great way to be more aware of your daily intake. This helps you not only manage you consumption, but also your budget. When you know how much you are smoking, you know how often you need to stop into Altitude Dispensary to re-up your supply. Win win, again!

So maybe you are not into flower and perhaps prefer edibles. These are a bit easier to keep track of already. Hooray! Let’s take a look at edibles. These are great if you are trying to cut back because often their effects can be a lot longer lasting than the fast fading effects of smoking. This means you don’t have to eat as much or as often to reap the effects of an edible. This, again, can also help out with your budget too. You can buy fewer edibles, yet reap the same effect.

 Also, edibles tell you how potent they are right on the packaging, so there is no guessing. You know exactly how much THC you’re getting. They even often come with suggested doses-two gummies, or three drops in your water etc. This is a great way to keep track of how much you’re eating and how often. 

Whatever your fancy, the budtenders at Altitude Dispensary can help you find what you are looking for. Everything in moderation, even moderation is a motto I like to live by and these little tips can help us do that.
