I think if you're used to smoking multiple joints every day, then you would probably be able to handle it. I try to only save my weed for emergencies, so 40mg worth of gummies would be a bad idea for me. :pfff:

Hopefully you have a good time.
Same for me too lol. When I'm at my worst, I take one and it really helps me. I remember a few weeks ago, I had started trauma therapy and the first session nearly killed me. I had to take a benzo and then an hour later, a gummy to shut down my emotions or I probably would've ctb that day. I haven't started another session since because I'm not ready yet

How much do you think would be too much? I should be getting 5 more gummies tomorrow. And what are the effects of too much? Im use to having bad trips. It would really fuck with my mental disorders and make it a lot worse, but idk if too much and a bad trip would be the same.

I'm thinking of taking 4 10mg gummies. Any idea if this is a bad idea?
I mean... It's not going to hurt you. You'll probably sleep well x)

Oh I see... Just play it safe then.

Honestly that's why I'm trying to figure out what the line between ok and not ok is (person dependant obviously). I'm curious what not safe is. Not as a method, just for a fucked up night.
So many variables it's hard to say. I would hesitate to tell you what to do because If you have a mental illness, the way mental illnesses play out is so unpredictable.

Plus no two plants are the same. Ive had bud from a plant that was harvested early, send me into an uneasy high. But the same weed when left to ripen a few more weeks, and dried and cured properly was absolute bliss. So yeah hard to say.

If you smoke and seem to handle it well, then you could maybe try taking one and see how it affects you. Better to play it safe I say. Even though I would prolly just smash the entire lot and sit back see how it pans out. Probably not the ideal way to go about it.

Chronic smoker and am now trying edibles. Still new to this kind of consumption. I have a selection of baked goods and gummies.

How long do gummies usually take to kick in for you guys? As a chronic smoker should I be ingesting at least 20 to 50mg to get the same effect?

Used to bong, then vaped but now trying this because I wanted faster results but nothing beats smoking.

Usually 45 minutes to an hour depending on if I ate or not. One time it took almost 2 hours, but that only happened once. I just took a gummy almost 50 minutes ago so it should be kicking in very soon

Thanks. I am being impatient. Took 30mg. Didn't feel like it was enough maybe.

I really don't like the gummies but they are easier to eat than baked goods. Anybody out there experienced with beverages? Is it faster? Thanks in advance.

Here are some concentrates I’m dabbing/ smoking tonight. The Concentrates are just a few of many I have. (Live resin, Live resin diamonds & some live sauce & lil bit of badder. I add trippy cat stickers to the jars so they look cuter. 69A0109C 674A 4355 89FF 80C1902B6C71

Have you ever tried Cannabis Tinctures? They get absorbed sublingually, so kick in much more rapidly. I like Mary’s Medicinals “the remedy-thc”. Just put .25ml under my tongue & it delivers 20mg THC & other cannabinoids too as it’s full spectrum.

Clearly I'm speaking with a connoisseur. Because of you I started down the rabbit-hole and am so obviously ignorant I must level up to fully appreciate this. I like the "remedy-thc" option at first glance. I'll have to find a source. Smoking is forbidden in my building so I had to find alternatives.

omg, will this help save me money? Thank you for sharing. I'm gushing now but the possibility of saving money on medication is the best news I've had in a long time. Thanks for the guidance.

Move to Oklahoma. My brother was in the dispo drive through and they were selling 15 1g pre-rolls for $20!! I pay $200 for half an ounce of baby buds. Oklahoma's OK 😂

Yeah lol, I might not have had gummies before (1 with no effect doesn't count lol) but I knew the time it takes to kick in is how newbies typically make the mistake of having too much. "huh it's not doing anything, I'll take another"

Yes, after the gummies I ate 2 cookies, each 10 mg THC because I didn't think it was enough but maybe baked goods take longer.
I might try 40mg of gummies later. Too much or about right for a chronic?
Thanks everyone. Appreciate the advice. I'm in Canada btw.

Mary’s the Remedy-THC concentrated cannabis oil (yes it’s a oil based tincture).. [I find alcohol burns & oils are completely fine] is only available in the 1000mg thc strength in California, Michigan, New York, & for some reason Florida] - but it’s available in 200mg strength (sadly at the same price as the 1000mg) in all other states. However there are 100’s of brands of tinctures.. several really stand out above the others tho.

Also w/ “gummies” & chocolate, I personally tend to suck on the confections in my mouth. This provides a much faster absorption time (mins vs hrs for me) & I like to get a portion of the edible products sublingually (unless it’s something like a cookie or French macaroon).

Here’s two lil issues with edibles that NO one really talks about but everyone in the industry knows. When you consume an edible with Delta9 THC what happens is during digestion & 1st pass metabolism in the gut, the THC is turned from active delta 9THC to 11-Hydroxy-THC or 11-HO-THC. This form of THC has very different effects than regular thc. However the biggest issue is what happens to the terpenoids? Well, as we know the stomach has a PH of >2 & has many enzymes. The gut is somewhat selective about what it absorbs into the blood. Unfortunately poor terpenoids don’t make it past the stomach & Lower intestines. The Acid in the stomach destroys 90% of them, and the Intestines get the final bits. So when taking an “Indica” edible, the “Indica” is there for marketing. I’m sure they used a Indica strain to make the gummies, but w/out the unique terp profile of that strain, your really just getting THC. And THC (from an Indica or sativa is still thc)
So the reality is, all edibles are generally hybrid in effect. Dosage will greatly impact the users perception of the effects & the other cannabinoids (assuming it’s full spectrum) like CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG, THCv, etc will really be the determining factor in that specific edibles effects..

However I love my terps!!! So I use the tincture as well as breeze thc tablets - the tincture gets regular d9 thc (flower high) to your brain in >2min. Edibles get 11-OH-THC (edible high) into your body in about 60-90min. Sucking on infused chocolate vs swallowing it will get a mix of d9 thc, 11-oh-thc & other cannabinoids + some terpenes into the body in about 10min.

Finally a real oral thc dose of 20mg is pretty strong. However there are SO many fake edibles on the black market. They all say 500-1000mg, but in reality contain maybe 10-30mg max. But if you have never taken a REAL edible, you will be lit AF from 30mg & think it’s 100’s of MG. Then when you take a real 100mg edible you’ll have the fear of god struck into you & possibly end up in the hospital. Very few people can comfortably take 100+mg of thc. But they do exist. Tolerance is also a thing; but it drops fast after a break. However yes, some people need 100+mg- however they are the minority.

Hope everyone plays safe & knows their limits. Make the most of this wonderful herb.

30mg gummies and a hash joint made me high for a VERY short period of time. I'd be surprised if it lasted 10mins. (it wasn't even a good high. I had my hair in a ponytail and it started to hurt. It felt like brain cells frying :pfff:.) after that I had 30mg more and a regular joint, nothing. I even had a couple drinks last night with the weed.
