This is a topic where I need feedback from the cannabis culture readers because I can’t find much information on this topic other than through other friends in the cannabis community.
To this day I’m annoyed and confused as to why there isn’t an edible that has intoxicated me in the way it has to everyone else I’ve taken them with. There is no possibility that they were made incorrectly as I’ve tried edible cannabis from all different sources. I’ve baked my own , purchased from dispensaries, and been given some quality samples from trusted friends.
There was always no noticeable effect from any of these options and I usually ate much more then the recommended dose. It’s pretty much a completely different drug because it’s being processed by the liver and converted to 11-Hydroxy-THC. Most people would describe the effects as more intense and longer lasting then typical smoked marijuana. Like I said I’ve seen what it does to a group of people while I sit there wondering why I didn’t just smoke instead.
I do know one other friend that claims to have the same problem as I do but from research online and asking around it seems to be an extremely rare condition. It’s unfortunate and i don’t know if something is wrong with my liver that makes it unable to convert the THC or what but I wanted to reach out and hear your guy’s experiences. When you take edible cannabis how many milligrams are you consuming at once? I’m sure previous consumption levels play an effect into how intense a edible experience will be.
I consume cannabis daily, but have a hard time believing that explains I feel nothing from 300mg +of infused-cannabis foods. If I were to take a few hits of a joint or vaporizer, it would be a far more enjoyable experience to me so clearly it’s not a tolerance issue either. At this point I’ve pretty much finally given up on purchasing and consuming edible cannabis.
I know I would definitely take advantage of this consumption method if it was effective for me and it’s actually more of a concern for me when I reach old age. Smoking might not always be a possibility or the most ideal when your body and lungs are more worn out and performing worse.
Either way I plan on using cannabis especially more so when I get older to the increasing number of health problems. If I could find a way to gauge in any way how many people have this issue or know more information about what the problem might actually be please comment below and let me know!
