Get ready for an out of this world journey into flavor and fun!

Are you a beginner when it comes to cannabis edibles? Fear not! We partnered with Chef Roy Choi to create this guide to provide you with all the information you need to consume cannabis edibles safely and enjoyably.


Cannabis edibles have become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reason. They offer a discreet, convenient, and smoke-free way to consume cannabis, and can provide a longer-lasting and more potent high than smoking. However, for those who are new to cannabis edibles, the experience can be overwhelming and intimidating. That’s why we partnered with Chef Roy Choi and put together this beginner’s guide to consuming cannabis edibles, to help you navigate the world of edibles and ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

What are Cannabis Edibles?

Cannabis edibles are food products that have been infused with cannabis extract, typically THC or CBD. Edibles come in a variety of forms, including baked goods, chocolates, gummies, and beverages, and can be purchased from licensed dispensaries or made at home. In Chef Roy’s collaboration with TSUMo Snacks, we present two new snack flavors that you wouldn’t usually find in a typical snack pack. Spaghetti & Meatballs and Spicy Cheesy Ramen – both come in a 100mg bag packed full of flavor, so pace yourself and savor each bite. 

How Do Cannabis Edibles Work?

When you consume a cannabis edible, the THC or CBD is metabolized by your liver and converted into a more potent form, which can result in a longer-lasting and more intense high than smoking. The effects of edibles can take longer to onset, typically 30 minutes to 2 hours after consumption, and can last for several hours.

Tips for Consuming Cannabis Edibles Safely

Start Low and Go Slow

One of the most important things to remember when consuming cannabis edibles is to start with a low dose and take it slow. Edibles can have a much stronger effect than smoking, and the effects can take longer to onset, so it’s important to be patient and wait for the effects to fully kick in before consuming more. According to Chef Roy, when it comes to dosages, ease your way in. There’s no reason to jump in the deep end from the beginning, start with 3mg or 5mg. 

Read the Label

When purchasing cannabis edibles from a dispensary, it’s important to read the label carefully to determine the dosage and serving size. Make sure to follow the recommended serving size, and keep in mind that the effects can vary based on factors such as your metabolism and tolerance.  When enjoying edibles in snack form like TSUMo Snacks, each form can be a different shape and size which makes it even more important to read the suggested serving size on the label.

How Long Do the Effects of Cannabis Edibles Last?

Be in a safe space where you can be yourself. Give yourself hours. The effects of cannabis edibles can last for several hours, typically 4-6 hours but can last up to 8 hours, depending on factors such as your metabolism and tolerance.

What Should I Do if I Consume Too Much?

If you consume too much cannabis edibles and experience negative side effects such as nausea, dizziness, or anxiety, it’s important to remain calm and remember that the effects will eventually wear off. Drinking water, taking a nap, or distracting yourself with a relaxing activity can help alleviate the symptoms.  Chef Roy Choi likes to put on a fun playlist and cook for his friends.  Here are some easy recipes you can try at home.

Can I Overdose on Cannabis Edibles?

While it is unlikely to overdose on cannabis edibles, consuming too much can result in negative side effects such as nausea, dizziness, and anxiety. It’s important to start with a low dose and take it slow to avoid consuming too much.

Avoid Mixing with Alcohol

Mixing cannabis edibles with alcohol can amplify the effects and increase the risk of negative side effects such as nausea and dizziness. It’s best to consume edibles on their own, and avoid drinking alcohol until you know how the edibles will affect you.

Store Edibles Safely

Cannabis edibles should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from children and pets. Make sure to keep them in their original packaging, and label them clearly to avoid confusion with regular food products.


Cannabis edibles can provide a safe and enjoyable way to consume cannabis, but it’s important to take precautions to ensure a positive experience. By following the tips and guidelines in this beginner’s guide to consuming cannabis edibles, you can enjoy the benefits of edibles while minimizing the risk of negative side effects. Remember to start low and go slow, read the label carefully, store edibles safely, and avoid mixing with alcohol. With a little bit of preparation and caution, you can have a safe and enjoyable experience with cannabis edibles.
