So I'm going to be trying edible gummies this weekend for the first time--any advice?

They are 10 mg so i really only plan on taking 3-5mg since it's my first dose. I'm not much of a smoker anymore, so with that said, what can i expect?
I would start with 10-20 mg. Be patient. It takes awhile before it really starts to kick in.

10-20mg...really?

I've read to start smaller than 10mg until you can find your tolerance.

i would think 10 for your first time would be fine, maybe a bit of "woohoo, got nothin else to do in this quarantine" but honestly would give a good baseline for you if you plan to take more. i forgot to mention, for me, it's always more of a pleasant body high...and when i was trying to find my sweet spot i would do combos of 2.5 and 5 candies and gummies and it just never felt like much. i mean, a little but kinda disappointing. plus, it can take around 45 mins or so to kick in so you might take a small amount, wait X amount of time, not sure if you are feeling, wait more or take a little more and then you wait more for that but maybe the 1st piece has started, so it can be difficult to determine...at least for me it was. then since feb i've been buying chocolate bars at 10mg a piece and starting at 10 is definitely a guarantee to be pleasant.

But, seriously, are the dispensaries staying open during this shutdown? I mean, they said pharmacies will stay open, so I feel like that kinda qualifies. Plus nothing different on the local spot's website yet.

this might be the route to take.

@Smith Corks One i'm seeing that they are being labeled "essential businesses" in CA. Not sure about the rest of the country though.

Medical only in Illinois. Recreational sales are suspended. Supply chain is affected and they have to serve rx patients throughout the duration.

Your boy definitely stocked up when the writing was on the wall with this virus. I'm g2g. Got enough food, coffee, and seltzer for 3-4 weeks. Enough green for like 3 months.

Edibles, I hope? I understand smoking is a likely risk factor for worse outcomes.
