Marijuana Safety & Awareness

Marijuana Safety & Awareness

At Oregon Bud Company we embrace and celebrate the wisdom and foresight of the voters who passed the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act and Measure 91. While social change can be slow for some and fast for others, the legalization of marijuana in Oregon should be a shining example of how reason and logic can overcome fear and misunderstanding. This is why we encourage you to enjoy our marijuana products responsibly and in accordance with all Oregon laws. Please do not take product across state lines. It’s our responsibility to be ambassadors and stewards of this freedom and show the world that the voters of Oregon got it right!

Oregon Bud Company also cares about the health and well-being of our patients. A big part of the new marijuana industry is educating consumers and helping to ensure everyone’s safety. (Nothing on this site should be taken as medical advice.)

Marijuana Potency

Marijuana concentration varies from product to product, as do individual reactions.  While many experience relaxation, euphoria and altered senses, others may experience anxiety, paranoia, irregular heart rhythms, disorientation, even psychosis.

The Effects of Edibles

The effects of consuming edibles are different and stronger than the effects of smoking marijuana, especially for first time users.

Product Strength and Type

The type and strength of product, your tolerance, body chemistry and what you’ve had to eat all have impact effects.

Take it Slow!

Edibles may take up to 2 hours to produce effects and last as long as 4 to 8 hours.

Age & Health

People over 50 years of age and/or those with a pre-existing medical condition are at greater risk of experiencing undesirable health effects from marijuana.

Other Drugs or Alcohol

Take caution if consuming alcohol or other drugs when using marijuana. It is not recommended to mix marijuana use with other drugs and/or alcohol.

Careful Storage

Do not store your edibles with other food and snacks to avoid unintentional consumption by pets or children.

If you experience undesirable effects from edibles, try to remain calm and relax in a quiet place.  If you have a medical emergency, call 911.
