First ever Edibles

31 posts in this topic

So had a bash at making my first edibles last night , loosely following some guides online.
 

Potency was a concern as ive never tried edibles ever , neither has the wife... lots of stories of people loosing their shit and freaking out taking too much put me off them for years...

I went with just 2.5 grams of flower , ground it up then heated in butter over a medium heat for about 45 mins slight bubbling but not boiled.

Then when it was really dark green/ brown i used this butter in the brownie mix and baked some delicious looking brownies...

According to the howtoedibles website this should be somewhere around 15-20mg of thc per brownie square a common dose ?

any of this sounding wrong or should be done different ?

Going to give them a go this evening any advise ? :wassnnme:lol

You ain't gonna lose your shit mate,  I never weigh anything so I don't know about dose sizes,If you are worried start with half a dose give it 90mins then decide if you want to increase, other advise would be getting a load of munchies in ,and line up a good movie or good music playlist 

 

eta and don't go fucking about with fireworks on your first time :yes:

So first batch of brownies I ever made had a quarter Oz of prime flower in and that made 8 brownies. So the wife tries one I told her only half so naturally she ate the whole thing (damn tasty brownies to be fair) half hour later "can't feel anything I'm having another" couple of hours later, she's emptying the contents of her stomach on a petrol station forecourt, had probably the worst experience you could have and passed out for 12 hours.

 

Turned out I got the portion size wrong, that recipe makes 32 brownies, one of which will get you decently high for a few hours.

 

So basically she had 8 in one sitting!

 

Always start with half and wait an hour minimum before deciding if you want to eat more. Once it's in your stomach the options for getting out again are rather limited.

 

What I will say is edibles are probably my favourite way to medicate. When you get it right it's great. Your weed goes so much further with edibles as well.

2.5g?

How much do you smoke in an evening?

How many squares did you cut the brownie into?

 

Lets say you cut it into ten squares.

If you have no experiance of weed then I would advise a quarter or a half a square.

If you are a regular toker then start off with half or a full square.

 

I made some edables a couple of weeks ago and they were really weak, one didn't do any thing. So the next evening I took two, apparently I could not be woken up even when Mrs Jass was poking and slapping me to get me to stop snoreing! I couldn't be moved and apparently I stopped snoring at 7am and woke up fresh as a daisy. Mrs Jass was awake at 7am too, she was not in the best of moods having not being able to sleep all evening due to my snoreing.

What everyone else says. Start with less than you think you'll need and wait at least an hour/90 minutes before deciding "This isn't working." and eating more. You can always have more but you can never have less once you've eaten them lol

 

E2A Though personally I've never freaked out or had 'the fear' on edibles (and smoking strains that are too 'uppy' can give me the fear), I find it affects me a lot differently when I eat it, a lot more mellow even if I'm absolutely off my nut, more trippy but less anxious :)

Sounds good so far. It really is a matter of trial and error but you should have good effect from what you have said you’ve done.

Enjoy. :eat:

THC when eaten has a more potent effect I have found.

It is to do with how the body metabolises THC within the liver converting it to the much stronger variant of 11Hydroxy-THC,  I do believe but Im no scientist and certainly no Dr. lol Nothing to be scared of though. If you feel a bit wobbly, have a lie down and try to get some sleep.

Have a good evening munching your brownies. 
Let us know how you get on.

You'll know you've gone too far when you're watching the contents of a glass of water tilting out of your hand, pouring all over the floor and there's fuck all you can do to get it upright. lol  Keep updating the thread so we can see how this ends up :yep:

 

I think the OP may already be unconscious lol

Think I may have decarboxylated the flower too long read it turns it into CBN which is a great insomnia treatment  lol

I think mate it also depends on what you have eaten beforehand how fast it kicks in and how fast it gets to your bloodstream, big heavy meal beforehand will have a different experience to taking it on an empty stomach     imho
