What is Island Time doing to encourage safe and responsible use?
This has been a top priority since we began our effort to bring cannabis to Martha’s Vineyard more than 8 years ago.
Island Time has developed consumer educational material emphasizing key elements, such as:
Packaging and Labeling
Start low and go slow.
Sometimes, the effects of cannabis aren’t always immediately felt. Everyone responds differently. Methods of using cannabis can be discussed with an Island Time representative to find one that is comfortable for you. Finding the right combination of CBD and/or THC is the goal. The basic principle for consuming cannabis is “start low and go slow.”
Cannabis has a wide margin of safety and there is a limited risk of overdose. However, caution is warranted until you fully understand the effect that cannabis may have. Product types and consumption varies greatly among individuals. Please refer to your state’s guidelines on approved methods of cannabis consumption.
Effects are felt almost immediately, within minutes.
Once you draw and inhale cannabinoid-rich vapor, the compounds are absorbed by your lung’s alveoli, and then transferred to your bloodstream.
How long do the effects of inhaling cannabis last?
Effects peak in 10 to 30 minutes, tapering off after approximately 2 to 4 hours.
Edibles take the longest to take effect, with onset at 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Edible cannabis enters the bloodstream after being digested or broken down in the stomach and absorbed into the digestive system.
How long do the effects of edibles last?
Individuals see the effects of edible cannabis last between 5 to 8 hours on average.
Potential Risks and Side Effects of Cannabis
Cannabis’s efficacy may vary, and side effects are possible. Each person responds differently, and particular strains will not always be effective. The effectiveness of a cannabis strain will be dependent on your personal response and sensitivity to the chemical makeup of the product.
