High potency edibles

Actually plenty would call 25mg a strong dose, I was being OTT due to the theme of the thread. Maybe go easy first time, like you say you can always just eat twice as much next time. But if you have a high tolerance then go for it...

Ha! I guess it isn't that high a dose. It seemed like it was to me because I'm new to it.

Now to make each 50mg, I wouldn't necessarily half the recipe? I would just cut it up into 15 larger pieces instead of 30?
Instead of cutting bigger pieces use 2 grams.

After I decarb the concentrate I like to mix it with oil/butter first. This way you can get it mixed well into the whole batch your making.

I’ve been been experimenting with edibles not sure if I qualify either 🤔 I’ve been using edible oil and mixing it with things, but I think my favourite is coffee first thing in the morning, I put 3 ml of high oleic sunflower oil/approximately 69mg thc in about 1/2 a cup of coffee and pour it back and forth between two cups so the oil is in small globs and I quickly drink it followed by another coffee but at a more leisurely pace lol hits me the hardest and fastest on a empty stomach. Effects are great and it really takes away my aches and pains, don’t feel the need to vape all day until the evening. It’s not something I can do all the time or it would kill my tolerance but man do I enjoy it

I hadn't considered what edibles would do to tolerance. I've been starting each work day with a big spoon of cannasugar in my coffee. I'm really not big on the taste of most edibles, but the sugar in the coffee dissolves just like sugar, coffee covers the flavour and it is real easy to drink. A normal cuppa tasted a bit weird now that I am used to the cannacoffee.
My wife has also hit on a great banana and ginger bread recipe. The combination almost completely covers the taste of the infused oil. She whips up individual ones in the pie maker in no time. One of these washed down with a nice cannabrew is as good as it gets to start your day, and you could have it in the tea room with the boss.

I start most mornings with canna coffee too. I use an mct oil infusion that's 4.5 mg per drop, so I use 4-6 drops most days. I drop it on top and try to get the floating oil in the first couple sips. By the end of the coffee im feeling it. Works great plus the bonus caffeine buzz helps. Carbs give a little extra kick too, so that sugar oughta do good.

On occasion I also use infused honey butter and infused maple syrup in the morning, but with infused coffee I gotta be careful. A few drops of that infused mct oil in scrambled eggs works great too and you really don't taste weed at all.

All of the brownie kits ive bought can be made in a 8x8 pan. An eight by eight pan makes 16 thick gooey 2x2 brownies. A gram of decarbed rosin (750mg) works well for a fairly strong dose, not over powering but nice, at least for us. I used to use non decarbed rosin as well, a smaller buzz but still good effects.

I was going to do this very thing. However with kids in the house, we didn't want to get into a world of trying to hide baked goods for safety sake.

I really think my best option for my little 1 gram of shatter is to dissolve it in some mct oil and titrate my doses into whatever I want. The problem is I'm not good with the math, and I don't want to overdo it with edibles.

I'm starting with 750mg of THC and I need to figure out how much mct oil is needed to have each mL of tincture equal about 25mg of THC. I could then use a 1 mL dropper to add to coffee or almost anything.

There are 591 drops in one ounce, (30ml) approx 20 drops is one ml. 750mg divided by 591 is 1.27mg per drop so 20 drops or one ml is 25.4 mg. Depending on your tolerance a decent dose. I use that amount in the morning or day time.

Edit---I usually add a few drops of sweet orange oil in my mct oil infusions. I like the orange flavor, it helps hide any weed taste, although mct oil is good for this on it's own, and orange oil is loaded with limonene. A terpene good for uplifting and energetic effects

I am psyched to make this. I already have the lecithin, I just need to stop by the health food store and pick up the mct oil.

I just started experimenting with taking edibles and have only had a few experiences so far. Last night I had a 20mg dose from a dispensary chocolate bar. 20mg seems just about right, as I had a 25mg dose once before and at its peak it was a bit too much. Last night was smooth sailing. I have found that it takes about 2 hours to kick in and lasts about 3 hours before the effects start to wear off. In all my trials it left me sleepy and ready for bed, which tells me that edibles might be an evening thing for me. I understand that the mct oil kicks in faster so I'll be ready for it.

After vaping every day for the past 6-7 years I'm looking to cut down on all the huffing and puffing. If I can establish a consistent method for oral consumption, then I can take a break from vaping every few days. Decarbing shatter and simply mixing with mct and lecithin looks to be pretty managable.
Thanks for all the help. :tup:

100mg each. Made completely inside the FX machine.

I cheated on the recipe and used Betty's funfetti sugar cookie mix. Just mix butter and water and bake. Mix made 12 cookies with my 1.56 grams of Slurricrasher came out to 103mg each.

So for the FX cooking. It was slow but it did bake a nice cookie. No smell while cooking , decarbing , or infusing but you do release a nice funk when you open it up. I will cook in it again but if doing anything more then 2 cookies the oven is really a much easier and quicker method. I only have the double lifter. Took just under 2 hours for the cookies to bake. The remaining cookies went in the over with warm up it took 25 minutes.

My mct oil arrived recently so I am all set to make this tincture. I know my ratio is 1g of shatter to 30ml of mct oil. I want to make sure I do this correctly.

I'll put the gram of shatter in a pyrex bowl and put it in the oven set at 240F for 45 minutes or until any bubbling ends. I'll let it cool a bit, but while it is still warm I would add a gram of liquid sunflower lecithin and mix it in well, then mix in the 30ml of mct oil.

Does anyone notice any glaring mistakes? Much thanks.

I used to love edibles. Haven't had any in about 7 months and I just got for 50mg thc caps from the dispensary and I feel NOTHING. Im really at a loss, and sad. I took 2 and still nada.

Last time I took 75mg I was high all day 🤔 just now took 20mg and a small low temp twaxing session with my VRod , now my edible is kicking as my vaping high should be subsiding and I'm feeling higher as time passes with me just sitting in my chair :rofl: I would have taken more but I don't want to still be high when I wake up in the morning :lol: That is what morning sessions are for ?!? I've always had the best edible effects taking it first thing in the morning and if I vape it's strictly CBD because I don't want it to color the edible kicking. I know my edible dose's pretty well by now and can get exactly what effects I want. 100mg and to feel nothing is strange even if it was muted effects that is strange unless you have a 5g a day habit or something I guess? Was this one of your trusted despencerys or some place new? I'd complain but not make a scene over it, things like that shouldn't go unchecked

No glaring mistakes, but I cover the vessel holding the concentrate to try to save any terpenes. I use a small glass beaker and cover it with foil.

My Tolerance is really high right now, I vape about a gram a day, dry herb. But to not feel anything from 100mg freaks me out. I used to take 20 mg chews and love it. I'm waiting for a day off and I'm going to take 150mg and see what's up. Smh... :brow: :lol: I hope it works...

Tolerance for edibles is tricky. A lot of factors come into play.

A lot of people question the dispensary numbers as being accurate. I've been generally underwhelmed myself with dispensary edibles.

I've found edible tolerance and vaping tolerance aren't the same. The body processes each differently. Folks with liver disease may not get anything from edibles, but do fine vaping/smoking.

Large batches may not have equally distributed the actives. The thc may be degraded. How your body digests foods can come into play, along with many other factors.

How you decarb your gear is important. On ardent's web site they mention that people used to over decarbing may not be used to a properly decarbed canna oil. Less couch lock on the same gear.

I've found what you combine the canna oil with also can make a big difference. Caffeine, carbs, and fats work best IMHO.

A method @macbill uses is helpful for consistent dosing. He makes a strong infused oil and counts drops for dosage. Those drops can go on regular foods for instant edibles with consistent dosing. Knowing the dose won't help tolerance but it will give you an idea of where your tolerance is at.

Related to oil infusions, alcohol tinctures work about the same. A little rougher to use though.

And making capsules like @invertedisdead makes for consistent dosing. For smaller personal edibles sometimes I bust open capsules for edible fuel. Or just eat a cap and eat whatever you want, lol.

I wouldn't say a g is that high, wasn't that long ago I was a g+1\2 on a bad day and a g on a good day. Back then I'd take 2 ml and my oil has always come somewhere between 20-30mg/ml so a 40-60mg dose and I'd be pretty ripped especially if I was also vaping. So I don't think 100mg shouldn't affect you at all but then again I'm not your liver?!? Ask him he'll know :lol: hope you have better luck but sounds like your stuff is all oil and no THC :(
