The average amount of cannabis you need to feel the effects is around 0.2 grams, but the amount does vary from patient to patient and plant to plant. A new patient may start to feel it working with as little as 0.05g, while someone who medicates on a daily basis may need .25 grams or more to achieve their desired effect. The more sparkling trichomes you see on your buds, the less product you need to use. If it is your first time using marijuana, it is recommended to start low and go slow (eg. use a very small amount — just 1-2 puffs worth). Allow a couple of minutes to feel and get comfortable with the effects before continuing to medicate.
