Edibles and their effect
Hi all, I've been trying to research this for some time now and struggle to find anything behind anecdotal information.
I've made edibles myself, had them from others and even tried a 2000mg chocolate bar from California. A friend of mine had half of a similar bar and nearly two hours later, while I was protesting it's complete lack of effects, he was laughing at how he'd just literally drooled all over his own hands because he forgot he had to swallow. Now, I've built up a high tolerance from smoking but this guy would start rolling another before his last one was out. Cleary my tolerance level can't be the sole factor. I have no diagnosed conditions relating to my digestive system or it's ability to absorb nutrients, no liver dysfunctions and I'm a healthy size for my height. That isn't to say there's nothing wrong with me there and I do believe I have some unaddressed issues there as I can eat a TON without gaining weight. If I get a takeaway, the family of 5 will order £30 and I'll order another £35 just for me. They'll still have some left for lunch the following day and mine would be finished! I'm 5'6" (yeah I know, lol) and about 10st. The others have gotten, let's say, progressively larger over time but not me. I'm always hungry. I'm almost convinced that there is some, even if indirect, relation between the two but it's a difficult one to speak to the professionals about in the UK.


"Hi doc"

"Hello, how can I help you today?"

"Well, try as I might, I can't get high on edibles"

"Right, so is there anything I can help you with today?

Of course I have addressed these issues without the "weed" tagline attached but so far, to no avail.

Does anyone have any scientific experience with this phenomenon? I should say that I am FULLY aware of the biological process and understand the progression of decarboxylation and metabolization from thc-a / delta-9 / 11-nor-9carboxy. I've read a little about a particular enzyme that I may be lacking, which would indeed be rather uncommon but I guess it has to be someone, right?

Thanks

Your liver has enzymes called cytochrome p450- these are usually involved in metabolising drugs. They vary in a lot of people. Some people can have several copies of a gene for a particular enzyme, and others may lack one completely. Its possible you may lack an enzyme. A certain amount of people (I think its around 6-8% ) cant metabolise codeine. Codeine is turned into morphine in your liver at a level of about 10% if eaten, but has no effect of injected, as it has to be metabolised into morphine to have an effect. It has no effect on about 7% of people as they lack the enzyme. Conversely, if you drink grapefruit juice before you pop your codeine pill, the effects are greater, as it turns off the enzymes 'off switch'. A similar effect is thought to happen with consuming mango before you smoke weed. If it doesnt work for you, try another method. I find if I have an edible, I get either a slight 'not quite there' high, or else a very heavy stone. Good to take a tolerance break every once in a while. Your body tends to downregulate receptors if theres a lot of THC around.

Yeah that's pretty much what I'm considering to be the problem. I know it's all too easy to latch onto information a say "that's what I must have" but that's where I'm leaning. It's pretty gutting really but it makes sense when cross- referencing the information from my other "complaints". T break isn't out of the equation though, I honestly could do with one.
Thanks for your input

Where would you say your tolerance is? How many MG's would you take in one hit?

I can smoke half a gram of decent weed and be pretty high but then go on to smoke basically as much as I care to and never get smashed
Dabbing hits a lot nicer (preferred) and unless I'm trying to stretch it I'll usually do about 0.1g.
With regards to the edibles, I ate the 2000mg bar and got nothing. After around 8 hours I feel particularly tired but not in a particularly "stoney" way. The bar was sativa dominant 70/30. This was after trying many different edibles in vein, of course. I'm not a complete nut case so the 2000mg bar really was a last resort to see once and for all if I could get high on edibles. Nada

Really, 2000mg of THC and nothing? Maybe the bar was a fake or dud, or you were given CBD instead? 2000mg is massive XD Have you tried RSO or a THC tincture?

big shot here ate just under a half of locally made “1000mg hash” chocolate bar and I was borderline psychotic but in an good way lol

I have to try yours out MJ

I’m curious how people work out the % of thc without it being testing but as far as I remember you also just state the amount of goods used rather that thc count

Yeah I know, I was pretty gutted. Definitely sold and packaged as thc but I couldn't absolutely swear it's integrity. I've tried both RSO and tincture but only my own and again couldn't absolutely guarantee a perfect decarb with zero degradation but all usual signs of basically done.
If you have anything to suggest trying that is particularly good I might give it a go when I have a few quid spare, I'd love to prove my theory wrong but I'm not having much luck

You may do this already, but next time you take an edible, take it with some fatty food. Or maybe try an oil that can sit under your tongue for a bit.

Yeah I've tried everything I can think of. I haven't lost hope yet and there are some great reviews on certain products on here, some of which are yours, that over been thinking about trying. What would you recommend for a "smack-you-in-the-face-I-can-hear-colours" experience? At this point I think I'd rather take too much and know it's worked just to see!

I haven't tried your chocolate but I have had the pleasure of trying one of your cookies after ordering a vape cart some time ago. To be completely honest with you, I fucking loved the cookie and I'm not a cookie/cakey person but I then went on to get ripped on your cherry pie cart which, in hindsight, is a lost opportunity to see if it worked. *Dickhead*. But I'll try to put another order in soon and give it a proper go as those cookies do taste like enough in there to feel the damn thing. The chocolate couldn't hurt on top :D
