Rookie Cannabis Users Have The Option To Test Their Tolerance Level With “Milder” Edibles


There’s a new way for cannabis newcomers to enjoy the flower without the fear of the potential heavy effects. Manufacturers in Denver, Colorado are now selling edible products that give people a milder buzz, which makes it easier for the inexperienced to find something that their bodies won’t react badly to.

According to an article in, the “Rookie Cookie” is a marijuana-infused goodie that contains 10 milligrams of THC. That’s a low enough dose that most adults wouldn’t be too impaired to drive a car. There’s also a new marijuana-infused soda that’s 15 times weaker than the company’s best-known soda. The Dixie One watermelon cream soda has  5 milligrams of THC — half of what the state considers a serving size. It’s being sold as as “great for those who are new to THC or don’t like to share.”

Colorado dispensaries have launched a “First Time 5” campaign of posters to encourage new users to take a 5 milligram half-dose of marijuana to make sure they don’t make any mistakes. And a marijuana advocacy group has also taken out billboards and magazine ads with the tagline “Start Low, Go Slow.”
