    I've only heard of people using edible brownies.

    What did it taste like? Did it taste like what a normal brownie would taste like?

    Pot brownies are pretty popular nowadays, or at least where I live. I still don't know why, wouldn't it be easier if people just smoked it instead? The idea of eating marijuana kinda disgusts me.

    I had friends in high school who could not cook without adding dangerous substances. They were always high and found it interesting sharing the food with anyone who passed around. I do not believe that they have stopped this altitude. I am fortunate that someone warned me about what they do. That is the only reason why I can say that I do not know how it feels when cooked in food, but these guys were always high. They did crazy things all the time--the kind of things that can only be done by people who are not in their right senses. I do not know if cooking it in food can increase its potency, but I do not believe that cooking it in food can reduce its potency. Anyway that is a personal opinion. I haven't done any research on the topic

    I was once in Amsterdam and had a cake with pot in it. It made me so highs and then so sick. It is definitely more potent when in food because you are ingesting it rather than just smoking it.

    I didn't think eating it straight up would give you a high. I mean there are pot brownies and such but I have never had the experience with it

    They've been popular since the seventies. Their popularity has just sort of fluctuated back and forth since then. It sounds pretty gross, honestly.

    Dang, a cake? I haven't even heard of using it in that haha.

    We didn't have any access to drugs since the nineties in my area. Also, not many people had internet since 2005 thus making it harder to discover new "innovations".

    And yes, it's pretty gross to me, but most likely that's because I don't like herbs in pies or cakes ha ha.

    While it takes more pot to get high with edibles, you're able to take much more at once. Generally when smoking pot, a time will come when you've simply had enough to smoke, preventing you from getting higher than you'd like. With edibles, you can just keep eating them and by the time you decide you're high enough, it's too late cause there will be more kicking in soon due to the slow uptake.

    Everyone always says that they get higher from edibles and so do most of my friends, however for me and my one roommate they literally never really affect us to the extent of others. My other friends would be to baked to pretty much move or talk, while we would be functioning fine. Might be because of our higher tolerances but I dunno.

    Oh my god, I have never been so wiped out in my life. I used to have a medical card when I lived in California for my migraines and so one day just for fun I picked up some edible carmel corn. I got home and ate about 9 lovely morsels and nothing happened. I was cooking dinner for my boyfriend and I and decided to eat some more so I grabbed a handful and gobbled it down as if I was at the movie theater. I finished preparing my meal and we sat down to eat about thirty minutes later and bam it hit me like a truck. I stumbled over to the couch and I swear I felt like I was on an acid trip for the next five hours. I will never do that again. It totally paralyzed me... it was not an enjoyable experience for me at all.
  14. I don't think putting pot in food increases its potency. I think inhaling it is far much stronger. However, for medical reasons, consuming it along with food makes it more effective as smoking leads to some of the medically useful ingredients getting burnt.

    Woah! Baking pot in food gets you really high than usual. I don't know why but the last time I had weed cookies, I got really high that I can't even remember exactly what I did.

    It is because when you ingest it, it is more potent compared to smoking it. I also had a pretty strong reaction to when I actually ate pot in a cake. It is an elated and happy feeling, but it drops you and makes you feel sick too.

    I have only tried pot twice in my life, and one time it was baked into some brownies. Those brownies really distorted all of my perception. I had to go to work the next day early in the morning and my sense of time and space was really distorted. I fell down and just was pretty out of it.. So, based on my experience, I think baking the pot made it more potent.

    The only problem I have with edibles is that you can't really measure how much pot you're consuming. I've eaten brownies with pot and some don't have much effect on and me while others hit me really strong. Other than that, I really prefer edibles to smoking, because I don't really enjoy smoking and I'd much rather eat a brownie.

    I wonder what this would do to someone that already has certain problems like high blood pressure. Then you are taking medication for it too on top of the "special" brownies? I hope it doesn't mess with the stomach or other organs.

    In most cases, edibles have the same effect as smoking the substance. The only notable difference seems to be that the high which is to be received takes longer to take effect. This may be due to digestion in the stomach rather than a quicker intake through the lungs bronchi.
