    So I made brownies the other night with canna oil and are grounded up abv baked accordingly and I couldn't get baked my self. My gf tried one she was out of this world she saw different environments according to the ambient and experimental music we were listening to. I then proceeded with the there's no enough fat in my system theory. So I ate 2 mcgriddles from McDonald's and ate like 1 gram of a brownie and this was before work. Still nothing. Am I doomed to not be medicated because of my high metabolism. I still get medicated off Bho and bud .

    I have never been able to feel effects from edibles. I have eaten 3 to 4 times the dose that made others high as a kite and felt nothing.

    I finally gave up on them.

    Eating more food will only slow down digestion, its likely you didn't eat enough. Add soy lecithin next time, it aids in absorption. I have had lackluster experiences with edibles but supposedly they're great for managing pain.

    And eating two Mcgriddles is never the answer

    This has been my experience as well. No matter how much I eat (3, 4, 5x the dose) I get no noticeable effects at all. I have given up on them too.

    Man that is dissappointing to hear bc they never worked for me til I tried abv with lecithin granules in coconut oil. I still need a bunch like 2.5oz or more gets me around a cup of gooood oil!!! People I have experienced with lower tolerances have seriously turned yellow and greenish bc of enzyme reaction in the liver. Lol, now I sound like I've had the boomers in the brownies!

    They should of been McMuffins :D

    Similar experience here.

    I also have a high metabolism and edibles are VERY hit and miss for me. Similar to above I can eat 4x to even 10x as much as my buddies with little to no effect. The best effects I ever had we're from a hashmallow no idea the dosage (lots of bubble hash) but I was super lit for 18 hours. I dosed then two and half hours later didnt feel any thing. Went and pigged out at taco bell 30 mins later and I was in for a real ride. No idea why it worked so well I think it was probably just like 20+ doses :lol:

    If you want to maximize your chances. Make canna infused coconut oil with a healthy amount of soy Lechitin an hour after a good well rounded meal. Dosing an hr after you eat will help maximize the first pass effect. Good luck

    Ps...Maybe a really strong tincture would be easier?.....

    Try using cannabis oil(honey oil, etc) either mix it with the butter(heat doesn't have to be used) or just cream it in with the sugar and butter.

    I gave up on edibles myself. I think everyone is different, and edibles seem to affect people differently. I know people who do them regularly and experience consistent results.

    For me, edibles are hit or miss. About 40% of the time, I feel no noticeable effects. About 40% of the time I get the desired effects and it's a very nice, long lasting experience. But about 20% of the time I end up on a white-knuckle ride that is not pleasant at all. It may not be possible to OD on cannabis, but it sure can feel like it sometimes.

    I much prefer to vaporize as I know the precise dosage that I'm ingesting and can expect consistent results every time.

    Now I just need a vaporizer that gives me 8-hour highs. :brow:

    :peace:

    There's absolutely a wider variance in how edibles affect individuals when compared to smoking or vaporizing.

    @Eespiajer however I would not give up on edibles if you only made them yourself. If you try a measured dose by an edibles professional and still don't feel much of anything...then I might give up.

    For example, every 21+ year old in America can come to Colorado and purchase an edible that's supposed to be 100mg THC. Professional bakers making standardized products don't make an ineffective product. So in my opinion: it might be your metabolism, it might be the edibles themselves. Don't give up without trying something an expert made.

    Ya I lold too. Ya got my gf super medicated again off sour d and Girl Scout cookies. There's something in Girl Scout cookies that makes her super turned on. Any other strain she's just cleans the house. Also added a brownie to the mix and played my music on shuffle and some dark ambient played it was called Komet. Boy she freaked out and said she was scared and saw demons. I think a bit was exaggerated . But I played Immanuel a post rock light hearted optimistic band . She was all better and trip seemed to settle. She did try to overdose on Ritalin a while back and that's why probably it feels like she's taking LSD when she eats brownies. http://www.last.fm/user/crossjeremiah/ if you want any more info on the music.

    Agreed. Big difference from having homemade brownies to say, a Green Hornet quad dose from cheeba chews. 275mg of glorius THC, made into a square shaped gummi. If that doesn't cut it, try the Deca dose cheeba chews. Also, Bhang has something out called "the Bite", which had a thundering kick to it as well.
    Good luck.

    I think most of the time it is simply not enough meds in the product. Wehn you do edibles you have to over dose by at least 20% in my experience.

    Think about it. When you get a edible high it can last from 4- 8 hours. You can't really believe you are going to get that same high by using a smoking/vaping dose? The product has to metabolize and if you use a .1 dose per cookie you are probably not going to get very high at all. I find you need .35g per dose to get a good effective edible high.

    Yeah, when I make an edible, I pack it full. I am also guessing, that your GF is smaller than you, and possibly has less experience with herb than you do, which would account for her different reaction. Also helps to eat edibles on an empty stomach if you can

    Uh, I saw that and believe the dreadlocks were faked! My sources tell me a device, such as seen below, was used to fool the scientists.... who, by the way, were "PARTAKING" in the testing supplies they were supposed to be using on the mice!!!!!

    That's funny. My wife loves to get high and clean the house. More than once I have been heading out and she has said "I'm cleaning house, make sure you leave me some weed." :)

    macbill WA-WAHHH. WA, Oh WA-To-See

    I once ate 3 or 4 brownies too many and was so stoned I could not enjoy the concert I was at. I had to get a bootleg to hear what I missed (Bob Dylan + Paul Simon). I had seats 13 rows back center. Big waste of money. A friend who consumed with me gave up mj afterwards because the intensity was a tad too much for him. I have that effect on people.

    Boom shaka laka laka; Boom shaka laka laka... I wanna take you higher...

    you made them wrong try using butter next time use fresh herb to make into mj butter using avb is great and all but it's hit and miss (really depends on temp you vape at) sure add the avb but use as filler.
    blend well.but don't stop there melt dark chocolate in double boiler use prepared mj cream to make milk
    chocolate than stir in the brownie mix.(best if avb, cream and butter is three different strains)

    and most important bake at a lower temp 325 is preferred no higher your gf might had eaten one nearer to the center of the pan.
