Yo, what’s up my fellow stoners? It’s your boy Dan here, and today we’re talking about how to test the potency of those dank cannabis edibles. You know what I’m talking about – those tasty treats that get you high without having to inhale all that nasty smoke. But let me tell you, if you don’t know what you’re doing, edibles can be a whole different ball game. The effects hit harder, last longer, and take way longer to kick in. So, here are some tips to help you get the most out of your edibles and keep yourself from getting too lit.
First things first, let’s talk about how the hell to even figure out how potent your edibles are. There are some fancy-pants techniques involving expensive instruments and a lot of time, but that’s not really feasible for the average stoner. So, we gotta figure out how to do it ourselves. The thing about edibles is that they’re not all created equal. Depending on the strain and how they’re made, the potency can vary like crazy. Some studies have even shown that a lot of products on the market don’t actually have the amount of THC they claim to have on the label. So, don’t trust those labels too much.
The key to figuring out how potent your edibles are is to start slow and pay attention to your body. The last thing you want is to eat too much and end up feeling like you’re in outer space for twelve hours straight. So, here’s what you need to do:
SET AND SETTING
First off, set and setting are everything when it comes to getting high off edibles. Set refers to your mindset – if you’re feeling stressed or anxious already, eating an edible is only going to amplify those feelings. Make sure you’re in a good headspace before diving in.
Setting refers to where you are when you eat the edible and who you’re with. You want to be somewhere comfortable where you feel safe and relaxed. And ideally, you want to be with people who make you feel good and won’t judge you if you accidentally eat too much and start freaking out.
The next step is to pace yourself. Edibles take a lot longer to hit than smoking does – sometimes up to an hour or more. So, don’t make the mistake of thinking it’s not working and eating more too soon.
Start with a low dose – whatever is recommended on the package, cut it into quarters or even smaller. Wait at least an hour and a half before eating more so you can see how it affects you. Edibles creep up on you slowly, so be patient.
DO IT YOURSELF
If you really want to know exactly how potent your edibles are, make them yourself! This way, you can control exactly how much weed goes into each serving and monitor the cooking process closely.
Make sure you know what strain of weed you’re using so you can look up its THC content online – Leafly is a great resource for this. And measure carefully! Too much or too little weed can throw off the potency of your final product.
Overall, the key is to start slow, pay attention to your body, and be in a good environment when you eat your edibles. Happy snacking!
