Usually the cause of a frightening, paranoid experience with cannabis comes from too much THC, or because someone can't take THC very well. But there are different ways to minimize these effects. If you are just starting to use marijuana there are some basic rules that you can follow. This also applies to people with a low THC tolerance.

Start with a CBD strain (Low-THC)

To start with, it is a good idea to select a cannabis strain that is low in THC and high in CBD.

CBD is a non-intoxicating substance in cannabis that is known to have medical and relaxing properties. This is in contrast to THC, which is psychoactive.


A bad first experience with weed can cause you to ignore cannabis for the rest of your life. A logical response, but not necessary if you keep these tips in mind.


CBD and THC have contradictions, but they also work together. CBD can ensure that the effect of THC (getting high) is reduced. CBD can also reduce the feeling of anxiety that can sometimes occur with cannabis use.

There are many strains that contain the same amount of CBD as THC. But there are also so-called CBD strains, and these strains contain very little THC. These cannabis strains cause a pleasant buzz, but do not have you completely baked, such as strains with a very high percentage of THC tend to do.

Another tip is to inhale slowly, little by little.

That is in case you smoke the cannabis. If you take hits in quick succession then sometimes you only feel how bad the effect is after a while, when it's too late. If you don't have much experience with smoking weed, it's a good idea to start slowly. First let the effect work on you and feel what it does to you.

The effect of weed is also caused by the way you consume it.

The effect of cannabis is not only caused by the substances contained in the cannabis or the cannabis product itself, but the strength of the effect is also determined by the way you consume the cannabis.

Smoking, evaporating, drinking and eating all have an impact on your overall experience.

Smoking, evaporating, drinking and eating all have an impact on your overall experience. In itself there are no wrong choices, but if you are just starting out, it is good to add nuance to how you consume cannabis and how much cannabis you consume. It is different for everyone and in every situation. As a beginner it is wise to use a weed strain wich is low in THC.

The first time you use weed should better be an awesome experience, because there is a good chance that you will remember it for the rest of your life!
