What are you eating right now? Edibles Thread

Post by TwoCanucks »

Do we have one? Tried searching but after a bit I got high.

Anyhow, there's a lot of separate topics through the years, but nothing i could find like the "What are you smoking now" mega thread.

Just starting to really get away from smoking, been vaping half the time for a few years now. With the law change in our country, access to cannabis infused food, drinks, oils, dists, etc is so much easier.

One of the biggest issues i have is the actual strain used. dont really see a lot of info on this on most stuff. Is there a strain that stands out for edibles?

My first experien;ce with edibles was in AMS back in 6-7 years ago. Luvtick's caramels -- which she has turned into a the lovely Cannabears Cannamels --
were really nice and relaxing. Since then i've had gummies, cookies, etc etc etc of "small label" brands. Hit and miss on impact highs and whatnot. Now there are many bigger producers with full product lines, offering pretty much exact dosing and caloric/content breakdown.

So far, my fav recent purchase are double dose dark chocolate butter cups from Sweet Mary Jane's and holy shyte they taste great. Normally find there is a cannabis undertone flavor to almost everything i've tried, but not these.

In AMS, got a really nice body knockout from Basjoe cake back in the day. Paradox cake was also good. there have been others in Dam, but memories are fading.

Also, wondering how CBD-THC content in some stuff can be THC 250mg-CBD 250mg is produced.

What's your fav? Any stories to share? good or bad. THC or CBD?

Peace. and eat on :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

PS - sorry if there is a thread on this already, like i said i'm a stoner :)

New batch of Oatmeal Raisin cookies based on Sage & Sour OG here. Unlike Kermit, the cookies do the job for me! Must be the raisins! :mrgreen:

Got to say Luvtiks caramels (fudge to me) are pretty amazing and not forgetting award winning goodness :wink: :mrgreen:

Got some 1inch brownie squares topped with shatter infused chocolate, they started off as full slices but a bit strong :shock: :lol: so chopped them into a manageable size. Syrup and ice cream, lights out :lol: :mrgreen:
I am miles away from any cooking expert as you can get but they do the job for me :)

A lot of producers are adding in CBD from extraneous sources to achive a 1:1 ratio.

Currently drinking my edibles in both Sugar Syrup and grain Alcohol tincture form - oh and also working my way through a batch of canna-caps. So they're more swallow-ables I guess :)

Rosin Lozenges, (try saying that when you're baked on one!)

https://youtu.be/059ZsVUl-3A

Made from a 0.8g of rosin, squished from a 2g of Stones Cafe - super polm.
At 5e p/g that works out at less than a euro per lozenge.
Nice medicated, strong background buzz, whilst still able to operate.

So frustrating. I have a very fast metabolism, work out 4-5 week, and eat good for the most part. yet, whenever i have an edible it's consistantly a 2 hour to 2 1/2 hour wait to kick in. it's been that way with pretty much every edible.. some of my friends who defo are not active and runnning good disgestive system are getting cranked off the same edibles in 1/2 the time. we're all about the same tolerance level so im stumped. guess it's just me but i dont know

What sort of body fat percentage are you at? The leaner you are the quicker it can kick in IME, but of course we are all different in the way our systems process edibles. It may just be your system set up..just because you have a fast metabolism doesnt necessarily mean your liver etc will create the metabolite 11-Hydroxy-THC quickly per se..especially on that first pass through process.

Also the timing of eating the edible- are you doing it on a full or empty stomach/ before or after food etc.(not trying to teach you to suck eggs but just curious to know and help out)

Perhaps try drinkables too Two Canucks - I find the onset almost immediate with Syrup with the peak coming at around 1:30 - 2:00 hrs

@sNc Those are very good points, i didnt realize that body plays a factor. I used to weight 375lbs, and after much hard work I'm down to 225 lbs on a 6'2" frame. Still a higher than ideal BMI for my body, and i have the ol' spare tire that's taking forever to burn away. last time i had it done with ultrasound my BMI was at 29, it's going to be lower now. Considering i was severely obese and close to 50 a few years ago.

@mofo good suggestion, i have tried them before without much success, but that could quality of product.

@Macky far too generous, but i will defo PM you :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

@twocanucks
Thats some good work, keep at it!
As macky pointed out something with a higher sugar content may work - insulin/GI can play a huge role in speeding it up or slowing it down and again depending how sensitive or not you are etc.
Personally Ive always been quite sensitive to edibles but ever since shedding excess body fat they start to hit in me 20 mins every time now.
Good luck and have fun experimenting!
