    Indeed. Most people seem to think you can just "Put" weed into cookables/edibles and that it will all "turn out fine". This is NOT fine. If you're going to do it, you need to use oils, butters, and things made cook with it that way.

    I heard of people trying to bake their actual pot into edibles and I just have to shake my head. You can not digest that stuff properly, even for a burnout, and it WILL leave you violently ill. So you have to be extra careful with edibles.

    I had seen a marijuana brownie when it was in fashion sometime in the 1980s. A friend brought in a party. But I was not able to have a taste of it because at that time marijuana had a very evil image and that brownie was so notorious. Gossips say that it can make you hunger for sex or something like that.

    If you could take a lighter and smoke a brownie, I wouldn't mind, but as far as eating food with pot in it, no way. I liked the smoke, I liked the smell, I loved rolling it. I always considered rolling weed an art form. So, for me, eating it takes a lot of the charm away from weed.

    I also think that putting weeds on foods can be really dangerous. It can be accidentally eaten by others too who might be around the person having it. Ot you will not monitor or know anymore how much pot you are consuming when it is mixed with foods.

    To be fair, that logic could apply to absolutely anything. "I don't want people having aspirin in their houses because the wrong person might eat it or they might not monitor how much they eat." It's all up to the person to be responsible.

    I had to smile when I read the title of the thread. It should say "Food in (a) pot". :)
    Yes, I have had hash cookies in the past, and they were far more powerful than a puff or two from a joint. I've never been a big cannabis user, all it takes for me to get high is to just sit next to someone who is smoking a joint.
    In the past a friend offered me some really nice cookies one night, and even though the amount of cannabis in them was very low, I felt the effect from it for almost two days. It was a slow and gradual feeling of relaxation that made its way into my body and consciousness, but then this energy kept moving around inside me and doing the most fascinating things. It was a big eye opener to say the least.

    It just depends on the situation, and how it was prepared. I've had good edibles that had just the right amount, and then I've had edibles that have sat me down right on my butt and made me stare at the ceiling with drool coming out the corner of my mouth. I will always take the former if I was to eat edibles; I don't want to be completely useless I want to be feel relaxed. That was the point.

    Now that I can see people actually whole fibrous parts of the plant makes me just wanna smack em up alongside the head. I'm sure there's even videos on youtube to preparing that stuff these days, knowing kids. But never, whole pieces in a edible would make me retch it back up.

    I had friends who wanted to bake space cookies, but I think part of the reason they never got around to it was because it wasn’t as simple as tossing some pot leaves into some batter, even ground-up. I’ve always been told it’s a pretty complicated process.

    One of my best highs and probably the most intense high I experienced was with pot cookies, I stayed high even the day after that amazing night. I remeber at the pick of it I saw things in a different way like 3d or something, spectacular it was...

    Yes, it is important to be responsible on storing and handling those stuffs that might be reached by those unconcern persons. Specially if the substances are not really safe such as drugs.

    Indeed - I'll share a story. Wasn't marijuana related, but my mother kept her narcotic pills hidden from my brother and in an aspirin bottle.

    Later that night, my Dad who is a hardcore morally rigid upright type of a man took two at my mother's pestering. Turned out it was the wrong bottle, he ended up with Drugs in his system and he hurt himself (took off his right index finger above the top knuckle) and nearly got fired from his union/job of 20 years because of a misunderstanding, even after hurting himself too. Poor guy. I remember all too well how having them in an unconcerned persons reach is all too deadly.

    This is no different then leaving something else out that an unsuspecting person could get too. Gotta be careful you clean up after yourselves, you know? Also, be careful with amounts you may put in or use with "pot butter" and such. Often times, people overkill it and they can make you virulently ill. I advise against edibles, as I advise against it as a whole but however, if you are going to eat the edibles - follow one simple you to keep yourself safe.

    "Always know the one who cooked it."

    That way you can tell if you don't want to take it, use it, or eat it. If you know the person, then you would know how they would cook it as well.

    But don't do it anyways. It's bad. *shakes finger*

    I have never tried that before, but sounds like quite a good idea to experiment with. It could be fan, but I'm not so sure how strong the effect will be after the weed has been cooked.

    Looking back now it really is kind of funny how the leaders of the past demonized it to the point of painting it to have effects it didn't really have, such as what you've mentioned, making you hungry for sex, among other things. I hope future generations would be able to tackle the issue more realistically so we don't end up making problems where there is none anymore and hopefully with that attitude we would be able to find and solve actual problems instead.

    I just hope people are smart enough to moderate their passions and ill-advised habits, if they are to continue them. I just don't want someone to die/get virulently ill because of an error in judgment due to consuming said drug wrongly, or through inexperience. That would be an unnecessary loss for the world. And unjustified deaths are always unnecessary.

    I love to experiment in the kitchen but I likely won't be experimenting with weed as I am in no way a fan. One of the weed advocates I know has encouraged me to have some as tea for improved health. He went on to share "success" stories. He was preaching to the not to be converted.

    Then there was this youngster who would visit the store and ask "moms" if she wanted a cake of some sort. In the earlier stages I was at a lost as to what was the connection between selling DVDs and oils but when I also realised he was selling wrappers it all came together.

    Yeah. People are tricky, Wintery. You can't be too wary or too safe against people like that.

    I have tried in a brownie and I hated it! It was the first time I had ever used marijuana and I was able to actually taste it, it was a bad a experience. The taste was bitter, I do not know whether or not it was because because the person was not experienced in making them or not. Either way, I did not enough my experience. It did not get my high, it did not taste good, and it was extra calories!

    Ah OK that makes more sense. Too much of anything is indeed bad for you for the most part.

    I've only had edibles once; puppy chow with some weed in it. It didn't get me high, but I didn't have much.

    I don't think a seven month hospitalization would be caused by marijuana alone. It's nearly impossible, if it's possible at all, to overdose on it. Perhaps it was some other drug in the brownie, or something that happened while she was high, but I definitely don't believe that cannabis was the only reason behind it.

    I see people who do this very often, actually. Not rarely can you notice some of our Internet fellows bragging about how many marijuana cakes or marijuana soup (yes, that exists as well) they've done, and I find their behavior rather ... oblivious to say the least.
