New to Marijuana? 4 Steps to Getting Started


If you’re new to the world of cannabis, it can be difficult to figure out just where to begin. At Billo, we’re happy to share our expertise. Follow these four steps to help minimize any adverse effects and maximize your enjoyment.

Disclaimer: Do not use marijuana if you’re under 21 years of age. Keep out of reach of children.

Step 1: Identify your goals.

Different cannabis products are suitable for different people. Finding the right place to start depends on what you hope to get out of the experience. So, before you dive in, come and talk to us. We’ll help you figure out your personal objectives, and make sure you’re paired with a product that will fulfill them. We’re here to take the fear and discomfort out of the equation by providing all the best information possible.

Step 2: Pace yourself.

Start out slow. Whether you’re trying edibles or smoking/vaping flowers and concentrates, only take the dose we recommend to start with. Don’t add any more for at least two hours so you can get used to the feeling. Dosing moderately ensures you won’t overdo it, and gives you the time necessary to evaluate how you’re feeling.

Step 3: Find your comfort zone.

It may seem obvious, but make sure you are in a space where you feel safe and relaxed, and are surrounded by people who put you at ease.

Step 4: Learn as you go.

Your first set of experiences should be about building your comfort and confidence. Think of each time as an experiment that will offer valuable information about what you like. Take note of what’s working, what’s not, and why, and you’ll have more control over your experiences going forward.

And that’s it! We hope that with these four simple steps, your introduction to cannabis will be exhilarating, safe and satisfying.

And of course, if you have health concerns related to marijuana use, talk to your doctor before beginning.
