A bad first marijuana experience can often be enough for someone to tragically banish cannabis from his or her life forever. Typically, the reason for doing so has to do with the anxious, paranoid side effects associated with THC, but what first-timers might not realize is there are a few ways to minimize those unpleasant feelings. If you follow these below tips, as well as stick to these beginner strains, you should be perfectly okay during your first few months of cannabis use.

Stick to Low-THC, High-CBD Strains

Unlike THC, CBD is a non-intoxicating compound with relaxing and medicinal properties. CBD can help counteract the anxiety associated with THC, so it’s a perfect starting point for new users. You’ll often find strains with equal parts THC and CBD, but some contain almost no THC at all.

Slow your Use of THC-Dominant Strains

It’s critical to slowly ease into a THC-dominant cannabis strain. They’re more likely to cause anxiety and paranoia. Settle yourself into a comfortable place and start with a low dose, maybe even just a single small hit if it’s your first time.

Try Different Methods

Always be mindful of how you’re taking in the cannabis. It can heavily affect your overall experience.
  • Most people begin cannabis with smoking, which has its benefits and drawbacks. One advantage smoking offers is dose-control – it’s easy to take a small amount and the acute effects usually subside after 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Vaporizing can often be the most ideal delivery method for newbies. It’s easy on the throat and lungs, dosing is easy, and the flower’s flavours are usually better preserved.
  • Edibles are a fantastic way to get around smoking cannabis. However, if you’re new to the game, start slow and dose low; the effects can take up to an hour or two to kick in, and they tend to be a lot more intense and long-lasting than inhaled cannabis.

Below are the best beginner strains that Bud Lab offer:

The Gorilla Glue strain, formerly known as “Gorilla Glue #1” or “420 Glue”, is an intensely even and balanced hybrid (50% Indica / 50% Sativa) strain. Using this strain will provide you with a sudden head rush, followed by an intense period of focus. The high from Gorilla Glue builds and builds to a final crescendo of a deep body buzz. It will leave you feeling completely stoned and immovable.
Pink Bubba is an Indica dominant strain that is a hybrid between Bubba Kush and Pink Kush. Great to use in the evening/before bed as it will hit you with intense physical relaxation and stress reduction, combine with a dream-like euphoria to help you drift off to sleep in peace.
Great for patients seeking dynamic pain-relief, the SFV OG strain (70% Indica / 30% Sativa) is a Sativa-dominant hybrid. Part of what makes it so popular is that it doesn’t leave you couch-bound. On the contrary, it quickly switches from a relaxing pain-reliever to a strong upper, leaving you with a euphoric elevating feeling.
