Delta 9 THC edibles offer a convenient and discrete means of enjoying the effects of cannabis. Furthermore, eating Delta 9 gummies is safer for your body than other consumption methods. However, if you are new to edibles, you may be wondering how much Delta 9 you should take.
Finding your ideal dose is key to enjoying the positive effects of Delta 9, and we are here to help! Read below to learn about safe dosing practices and the difference between low, medium and high doses of Delta 9 THC. We’ll also share some tools that will help you along your edible dosing journey.
Why Are Delta 9 Edibles So Strong?
Delta 9 is the form of THC that we associate with the cannabis “high.” When you ingest Delta 9 THC, it goes through the digestive system. Your stomach begins to break down the edible, your intestines process it further, and then the THC reaches your liver. Here, Delta 9 transforms into 11-hydroxy-THC, which is very potent. This is what elevates the effects of cannabis, and is why taking an appropriate dosage is key to the safe consumption of Delta 9 edibles.
At Cannabutter Digest, we’ve developed a Cannabutter Ratio Calculator to help you effectively dose your edibles. If you’re in the business of making your own edibles this is a great resource for you.
How to Dose Delta 9 Edibles
No two individuals will have the exact same experience with the exact same Delta 9 dose. Differences emerge due to factors such as:
- Fat content
- THC tolerance
When you try Delta 9 for the first time, it is a good idea to make sure the dosage is tested and precisely known before consumed. Because the effects can take a while to kick in, you should always wait at least two hours before taking more. Start low and start slow.

A low dose is dispensed in any product that has between one and five milligrams (mg) of Delta 9. This level is the best place to start if you have never tried edibles before or if you know that you are sensitive to them. Taking this dosage can help you feel more creative and focused. This amount can also help you feel less anxious and stressed.
An average dose of Delta 9 is anywhere from five to 25 mg. This range is broad, so you should start on the lower end if you have not yet developed a tolerance to THC. This dosage will make you feel more of a somatic high, as well as feelings of euphoria.
A high dose of Delta 9 is between 25 and 50 mg. You should only take this much if you are a seasoned edible eater and understand the potential effects. This amount of Delta 9 THC will create intense euphoria as well as “couch-lock.”
