The wife and I bought some edibles in Michigan late last year because we had never tried pot that way. Long story short I ate a whole edible when I was supposed to eat about 5% of it so I hallucinated all night, had a really shitty panic attack twice and several times felt I was completely losing my mind. Not so much fun really.

It seems like almost everybody who tries edibles eats way too much the first time. Like people don't believe a gummy bear or a brownie could do anything bad to them and so they eat three of them, despite being told that's a bad idea.

The first time I tried edibles, I ate way too many, chased them with an edible orange cola, and then sat in my hotel room doing basically nothing for several hours except half-panicking that I was too high. Good times.

I really, really want more of that Orange Kush soda, though.

I said this to Moses when he did something similar, but people treat their first edible like shotgunning a bottle of vodka for their first drink. I think maybe it's like, they think this is likely going to be one of the only times they try it, so they want to have a "real" experience or something.

Edibles can be really nice. Just be fucking cool. Be cool.

The Canadian government suggests that 5mg of THC is the recommended "beginner" dose. I think Moses took about four times that. I like to do 4 or 5 and I'm not exactly a beginner, although I do have a tendency toward anxiety and paranoia. I find with that amount I still get a bit of a high, but I can also snap myself the fuck out of it if I start to spiral.

Another common tendency with first timers: "I ate the drugs, and I still don't feel anything, so maybe I'll just double up on it." 1.5 hours later = introspective hellscape.

That is basically what I did. Also, i had tried one the previous two days with no effect at all... third time did the trick for sure.

She is far smarter than I am and didn't gobble the whole thing down at once, so she was fine. Other than listening to me babble about Monets paintings of haystacks for who knows how long she had a nice pleasant high.

What's nice about packaged edibles is they list the mg of THC they contain, so you can figure out how much you want. I'm a lightweight, 10mg will get me proper stoned. If I get handed a 40mg brownie, I'm breaking off a fourth.

I like to be barely high to the point that I sometimes can forget that I'm high or not be sure if I'm "that high". If the high is invasive to the point that it is always predominate, it's pretty likely I'm not enjoying myself.

We had a few different kinds but the one that did me in was a 125mg fruit roll-up. I had looked up proper amounts online and it came with instructions so I knew better.

That makes sense. So far with me its always absolutely nothing or i'm drooling on myself in the corner for hours.

Good lord that would have me stoned for days straight

IIRC the amount that made me feel like I'd done too much was about 30mg. I am relatively a light-weight compared to some people I know.

so my personal experience and generally of those I've been around - back in the day, edibles were made out of schwag shake that nobody wanted to buy, so they dumped it into brownies or something like that.  They'd lose potency, be low quality anyway, etc.

So when you present a gummi bear to someone that's eaten like half a tray of shit brownies that still didn't do much it's a little hard to believe that advise.

It's good advise.  But to be honest, even when I follow it, I still don't really like them and prefer the traditional way.
