Hey Everyone!

Listening to Marge a few weeks ago got me well into the idea of trying some edibles so i had a crack and i was hoping @marge or maybe some of the community could help with a question i had.

The mrs got me one of those Magic Butter things and it blew my mind, so easy to use so i had a crack at making some honey : D!

My questions are:

1. When weighing what im putting in am i weighing it pre or post decarb? Im asking cos like 4 oz of chopped leaf turned into 40 gram after decarb. The whole lot made 2 & a 1/2 cups or bout 250 gram of honey.

2. Anyone got any good way for working out dosage? Not sure if i should be having a tea spoon or a ladle worth haha

 

Cheers : )

@noxxy Thats a good question. my wife and I have been weighing after decarb. and the edibles tend to be fairly potent.

as far  as dosage goes i would start small and add more if necessary to reach your desired potency. more than once ive ate one of our edibles and had a very uncomfortable day.

 I think this would be a great question to post in the questions for the show so Marge can give us the best answer, im sure others may have wondered the same thing.

@twisted1 Sounds like a good plan mate, i've got a few days off work so ideal time to test it haha, lets see if it lasts the week 🤣 🤣 🤣 If its post decarb i probably dont have to worry as much, was just concerned it would be rocket fuel 🤣 🤣 🤣 dont wanna have the Mrs finding me face down on the carpet  🤣 🤣 🤣 

Good shout on posting in the questions for the show, I'll do that now.

Cheers mate : )

@noxxy it’s gonna be a suck it a see kinda thing I think mate I also think it may depend on the strength of the product you start with. I’d have thought a flower of say 17%THC would have a less of a hit then something say 28%. So like twisted says start of low and work you way up when trying to dose. Gonna make Marges honey cashews this week. Hopefully it’ll put me on my arse😂Good luck mate 👊✌️

@noxxy im sure itll be fine  remember you can always add a little more but you cant undo what you've already ingested.  My first time making edibles i way over did it. I ate 1 cookie that still had me uncomfortably high the next day.

Have fun and enjoy.

@noxxy I always weigh the weed after the decarb.  I think you get better accuracy this way.  Figuring out potency isn't too tricky though you'll likely have to guess the potency of the weed which can throw off the results but it's better than nothing!  I have a calculator over on my website that allows you to figure out the potency....its not perfect (I'm actually having a better one created for the site as we speak!) but it works.  That page also gives you the math behind the calculator if you wanna get out the ol' pen and paper!  I hope that helps, lemme know how it all turns out!  Don't overdose yourself lol

Life is short, eat the edible.

@twisted1 great advice to start low and work up from there....that's how you avoid getting too high for too long!

@twisted1 I've done that too....the only time I had to call in sick at work was when I foolishly ate too many fresh baked cookies (they were so good!).  I shoulda known better.  I got uncomfortably high and woke up high as fuck the next day...not in a good way lol

@marge awesome advice, thank you! Will defo check out the calculator, that's a neat touch!

 

I've started slow and almost found the sweet spot i think. Today, when i could hardly get out of bed, 🤣 was the day i new id got the dose slightly over last night lol - 2 teaspoonfulls is adequate for a solid nights sleep, 3 teaspoonsfulls means a solid night sleep and may include the next day 🤣 

 

Thanks team. PS - I used one of they magic butter machines, thing blew my mind. I have pretty much no experience with type of machines but i found it good and would recommend anyone who's considering it to go for it -- also though im sure heaps of other more cost effective methods work just as good so dont let not having a machine stop you giving it a go anyway, im glad i did : ) and i will again

@noxxy it takes time to figure out an ideal dose, but once you do...magic!

I have a Magical Butter Machine, it's great!  You turn it on and walk away 'till it's done.  A little noisy but the LED lights and the ability to do a big batch of an infusion is well worth it!
