Advice on Edibles: what to look for, especially focusing on consumption, user experiences, dose, type of edible, taste, and types of cannabis edibles available in California

"Don't need help locating the edibles just what to look out for in an edible and what is considered too expensive."


QUESTION - Recreational weed is finally legal here in Cali. I'm looking for edibles, however, I don't know enough about THC levels to know how or where to begin or what to look for in the right edible.


Can you please advise?

"I once ate like 500 milligrams all at once, after my tolerance had dropped all the way down. and I couldn’t function for 2 days."



yesFrom my experience 5 milligrams is best for beginners, and build up to regular use between 25 and 50 milligrams, serious medication starts around 75 mg and goes up into the hundreds of mg.

yesI personally would start with a small amount and dose in a safe place. Depending on your metabolism, might take as much as 60 to 90 minutes for full effects. You may always take more in herbal form instead of a big dose of concentrates.

yesTaking extra edibles ontop, within 24 hours, will just give you a shitty and burnt out high. The half life is insanely long.

yesyesyesWell, if you pay more than a dollar a milligram, that’s probably not something you should purchase. Assuming your tolerance isn’t super high, 10 milligrams will get you fairly stoned, 20 mg will get you blazed, and 40+ will megafuck you up for quite a while.

yesyesYeah, if u never had edibles and have no tolerance ,, start low and give them at least 30 min- hour to kick in. If you go overboard, right away may be overwhelming. I once ate like 500 milligrams all at once after my tolerance had dropped all the way down and I couldn’t function for 2 days. I didn’t really believe the hype until the , ha ha ha .

yesHere in WA there is an edible product called Zoot Drops that my wife uses whenever she needs to be discreet. Lemon/Lime flavor blends with any soda, keeps her buzzing right along after about 30-40 minutes. Price here around $35/bottle.

yesTry something SMALL wait 2 hours and note what happened. Try something larger next time. Be careful with them.

yesSo there is a possibility that too much could make me ill? Like vomit ill?

yesRacing/pounding heart is the worst. Possibly it make you nauseous. Too much is unpleasant and eatables last longer, stay in your system as compared to vapor or smoke.

yesAs someone who’s vomited from an edible, yes it’s possible.

yesThe reality of edible consumption doesn't match the cultural hype of it, in my experience. I like it it's okay; it's just not the same thing as I heard about, over the years from movies and second hand information.

yesyesYou won’t get sick, however eating too much with make you paranoid as hell. I’ve seen people fear for their lives and go to the hospital. Nothing will happen then, however, start super small, 5 milligrams is usually good. Don’t top it off, if you don’t feel anything in 30 min.  Keep waiting.

yesTalk to the people (budtender) who work at the dispensary.  


"Choose a product with lab-tested results for d9THC content and pesticides, never leave edibles where an unsuspecting person might consume them. Start with a low dose of 10 to 25 milligrams of d9THC and wait two hours for effects to fully kick in.   In the past, medical cannabis edibles markets were dominated by a niche group of patients who use cannabis edibles as a replacement for dangerous, addictive pharmaceutical drugs intended to treat chronic pain or insomnia, and these folks require very strong dose levels, to which they quickly build up a tolerance. This is why brownies with 500 milligrams of d9THC exist."

Kombucha is a healing herbal tea that utilizes beneficial fungus to create a fermented liquid that acts as a health tonic. It’s not immediately clear how cannabis would be infused into the liquid, perhaps a tincture is mixed into the herbal tea? After drinking about half a bottle, no noticeable effects manifested, so possibly activation of the psychoactivity isn’t occurring efficiently. By Green Goddess, Venice, CA**
