This has been going on since they legalized it, at least in my town. "Start with 10 mg, wait an hour to feel the effect, if not, eat 100 more, wait 10 minutes, vape" etc.

Pot doesn't need goddamned instructions. If you need instructions for pot, switch to an opiate and do us all a favor.

you realize that edibles can be extremely potent, right? Have you never had someone advise you to take it Easton the first pull, because they just got a new batch? If not you have no idea what you are talking about.

Pot brownies DO need instructions, especially those who have never had one. It's so easy to eat too much and knock yourself out of commission. Those things are not to be trifled with, yet if you've never tried one, you'll think "I want to get wicked high, I'll just eat the whole thing." Not to mention that is a delicious brownie, we're accustomed to eating an entire brownie. Psychologically we consider that a serving size. If we just eat one bite, we're not psychologically satisfied.

Brownies are a whole different ballgame. Ah well, we all have to learn somehow.

There was this time I ate a chaw of Cheeba Chew, about 20mg of THC if the label was to be believed.  One hour, nothing.  Hour and a half, nothing.  Drank a glass of water .... whoa!  The rush ran me over like a freight train.  It was hang on to chair time for about twenty minutes before I could stand up.

There is too much pot in it if it isn't adviseable to eat a regular single serving size.

What is the use of consumables if you can't satisfy a slight hunger?

As a chef I do not appreciate the foul taste of green. However, I've seen many friends destroy decent weed with overclocking. If you must, slow cooking is essential, too much heat will Kill the potency. I would recommend making a decent normal fudge brownie and then making a thick chocolate sauce and slowly stir in your special ingredients. I would also recommend a bit of flour in the sauce to improve viscosity.

I know. It is just that if your going to eat it, it might as well be in a portion that can satisfy in two ways instead of one. Baking brownies and then making them so that you should only take one bite is silly.

Not necessarily. The goal is not to satisfy hunger, it's to get high. This just provides a more pleasant dosing method than smoking for some people. Also, by making it more concentrated, you don't have to have a much larger storage area/warehouse to hold all these inactive ingredients.

My friend, who have never done more than have a puff on a joint before, stupidly decided to have a whole pot cookie. Called me up at 2 am and asked me to rush over and help him. He was just completely out of it. Moved like he was walking through water, eyes could barely stay open, slurred most of his words to the point where you could barely identify them as words. He puked it up about two hours later and finally fell asleep. Woke up late in the afternoon, still incredibly stoned and barely coherent. Stayed stoned for another two days. Said it was the dumbest thing he ever did.

Edibles are potent as fark, and people who are coming to Colorado for the legal pot really need a warning of what they are getting into.

He said was drunk when he decided to set out on his edible adventure, but that was it. I doubt he was doing anything else, as his only other experience with pot was a single puff on a joint during high school. I have little reason to doubt him.

Oh, I wouldn't say that, per se... I just got better, learned my lessons, and no longer take bongs, or mix with tobak whilst smoking at home. (100% collapse of right lung, leading to 6 hour procedure to remove cysts on lungs to help prevent recurrance, followed by pluradhesis procedure and a 2 week fight with MRSA around the intubation site)

I vape when I'm just after a nightcap, or breakfast buzz.

I eat when I'm off for at least 2 weeks holiday, and that's for the 2-3 days of sleep/munch cycle. I love the lucidity of the dreaming it gives me.

I only mix with tobak when it's beer drinking in the park with friends, cos it's nice to be social and pep, and pass around some nicey stuff :-)

Bongs are by far the most dangerous method of consuming cannabis. They're REALLY dangerous, actually.

The Growing Kitchen's "Chill Pills" are my favorite edibles. 9 little lozenges to a tin. Discreet, easy, no paraphernalia needed, minimal smell. Spearmint-flavored for Sativa, honey-flavored for Indica. One lasts for 4, 5 hours.

I love cannabis, but have no interest in stoner culture. I don't want to learn the slang, or spend thousands on bongs/ vaporizers/ what-have-you, and don't want to stink up my home.

So I an hour before I get situated, I take one of these, then am ready for a hike, concert, workout, movie at the Alamo Drafthouse, cartoons on Netflix, whatever. Damn I love Colorado.

The first time my friends ever made brownies, I finished up a big ol' batch of tuna helper and headed the hour and a half down the mountain to go join them. No one was experienced with these things (or at least they didn't let on that they were) - I was a pretty big guy at the time, and could put away my fair share of food (as I did with tuna helper a while earlier). No one told me how much or how little to eat.

Five brownies and two hours later, I was having what felt like an out of body experience. I was rocking back and forth in my chair and I could not speak - I could only manage to laugh nervously every now and again. Went back inside and had a lie down on the couch, and prayed for death. Or at least I thought I might die. Thankfully, my body determined that I'd had enough, and I was able to empty the contents of my stomach in the toilet and promptly pass the fark out. Then my friend woke me up from the bathroom floor asking me if I wanted ice cream... I kindly said "no" and went back to my bathroom floor slumber.

Precisely. In the days of yesterday (9 months ago) when it was all medical in Colorado, a single dose was considered 20mg.  Now, with recreational sales, a dose is 10mg.


mdeesnuts: I've never heard anyone say weed was dangerous


Walk into a cannabis outlet and you will see things you have never seen before.  Mass quantities of THC, dangerous in that overdoing it can make you feel, uh, quite uncomfortably loaded to the point that you might vomit.  You might pass out.  Did you know that "fighting to remain conscious" is not just empty expression?

Dangerous meaning dangerous to your physical health, no, although there has been one case where a novice was so freaked he jumped.

I know exactly how hot you need to get it. I also know the boiling point of THC is 314 degrees F. Once you have decarbolized it you can infuse an oil, I prefer canola, or a fat like butter. If you use this method it will not impart any detectable flavors to whatever you are cooking.

I have found that nasty Mexican brick is the most cost effective. I get about 60 delicious cookies from an ounce. Nobody wants to smoke that crap anyway and it really is the best bang for the buck.

You haven't seen some of the stuff out here, then. My girlfriend made the silly decision to clear a bong of some high-grade stuff at a friend's house (who goes through an ounce a week), after us having not really smoked much at all in general. She ended up puking 3 times, and was convinced she was going to die, and was just feeling off for the next few days until it cleared out.

This ain't your mama's 60's ditch weed.
