The ratios of THC and CBD vary in all the edibles. Doses are written on the wrapper of the edible so that you know how much you need. For a beginner the dose is between 1 – 5 mg, an intermediate can have a dose between 5 – 20 mg, and an expert can have the edibles with a dose of 20+ mg. Dosing is recommended because you never know how your body will react to it.
