Since things edible seem to be coming to the fore Ì thought I'd share my first "edibles experience". Go on, have a laugh at my expense 😂

For my first ever attempt I chose to grow three Sour Diesel plants and as far as I could tell had a fairly good harvest. I intended to create edibles and possibly a little concentrate from this, since I don't smoke. That said I kinda figured I'd like to try a little of the fruits of some of my hard work and try a little 'dry herb vaping'. To be honest I was totally underwhelmed, no real effect to get excited about and frankly got me thinking somehow I'd messed the grow up, or that I'd made a poor choice of stràìn. It was quite disappointing really, 5 months of growing and waiting, all to what seemed no avail.

I still had loads of the stuff. I decarboxylated the rest and made a coconut oil infusion with it. Next dày I grabbed a packet brownie mix and got cooking. I substituted the added oil ingredient for my 'canna oil'. I made little individual brownies and popped them into the oven. Then, like any other nauģhty youngster, I licked the bowl clean !

Fresh out of the oven I left them to cool. I returned to them after 45 minutes or so and tried one. Though I sày so myself it was very good ! They weren't particularly large, so I sneaked another. I then popped off to do some work in my greenhouse....... After half an hour or so something was stirring and it weren't no cup òf tea ! The 'stirring' progressed and I now realised that my 'useless crop' was fàr from that at all !

At that point I was lucid enough to realise I'd been a very silly Billy. I gathered my thoughts as best I could. I might just be able to work this off. I'll be okay. I knew the effects would be delayed (a couple of hoùrs or so) and calculating the dose can be somewhat tricky. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm more a .... 'fly by the seat of my pants" kinda guy. Well I was certainly flying now !

Then the realisation really kicked in. What a I was experiencing was just the licking of the bowl clean, I still had two full brownies to go. Fuck !

Eventually those brownies slammed in. I just had the presence of mind to say a quick " I feel weird I'm off to bed" to my wife. She knew something was up.

The rest is a kinda blur ! 

I would describe it as a fully fledged psychedelic trip, only I've never had one of those. However if I had, I reckon it would be somewhere pretty damn close to this. I was in some sort of altered state for sure. I have to say I found it in no way pleasant. Basically it was exactly what I'd been warned about ! Oh well you live and learn. 

After some hours and I've no idea how many, the hallucinations, visions etc subsided. My thoughts became more controllable and I did find I was able to direct them in a very positive direction. Sort of like 'on dèmand dreaming'. Sexy dreams. Fascinating. However not so fascinating was the thought of explaining the whole affair to my wife, who had seen me through my delirium . Shit !

And there you have it. One moment in life you're a respected pillar of the community, the next and you're a senior stoner !!!

Only blame got myself to blame....... gummies next 😂

Time to grow old disgracefully.

Yer man, seen the flashing patterns on the ceiling in the dark myself once or twice. Scary the first time but the one thing with edibles, this too will pass every time. Absolutely love the narrative, already knew the payout when you said it’s had only been 30 minutes tho. We all make these mistakes and then remember them fondly for some reason, baby steps next time maybe lmao

@monkeydo it wasn't pleasant at the time, but it's certainly an experience I enjoy recounting now ! 😁

Thats classic @Toploader 😂 thanks 

Reminds me of watching some friends, 14-15 at the time, who drank hash hot chocolate .. with a 1/16 in each cup! .. . I’d arrived too late to partake so was just smoking joints to myself whilst watching them trip their nuts off.. for about 10 hours lol eventually they passed out one by one .. some were never the same since ... one mate ended up with glangia fever as his immune system was temporarily down.. complete carnage!! 
it was the most fucked I’ve ever seen anyone on any drugs (well almost) 

Since then Ive always like the idea of smoking more than eating cannabis as I know I can control the dose ... those brownies always look so tempting though lol 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@toploader tell me about it bro. I remember thinking if this was ever going to end but now I just laugh at myself. We all do it, live, learn, don’t do it again (too often lol) and teach others. The story was the highlight of my day

Theres a youtube channel called Diamond Delights Edibles with this stoner mum called Liz - its pretty joyful and has some great recipes. her lack of editing is stella!

i make her gummies and they are very popular! i double dose them with canna-corn syrup and canna coconut oil (one batch in particular was super trippy)

I make a lot of oil (am brewing a batch at the mo), but I've yet to try gummies. I really must give it a go.

First stop though -

That Balm is the magical cure for my arthritis in my hands. It does not instantly fix everything but the pain eases slowly and the next morning everything is grand. Been tempted to try Woolie’s recipe just for comparison.

@toploader Sounds like my first batch of cookies. I have been smoking cannabis for 42 years  so when i decided to give cookies a go  I used 4 oz of small buds and trim to a small jar of coconut oil.

Figured my tolerance would be high  so I need it to be strong, I made a batch of 12 cookies with this oil I think i added too much oil also as it oozed out of the cookies.  I proceeded to eat one cookie and after an hour it hit me  and continued to hit me.  Was not a fun experience after 24 hours i was still fucked up.

@Canna_Educator came on and helped me figure out the proper recipe  and how potent the ones i made were.  Its better to start with a small dose and work your way up giving plenty of time for it to kick in.  Since then i have enjoyed edibles on several occasions

He has recipes you can trust for about anything you would like to infuse.

I get sore hands too from work- nice one on that balm, i'm going to try it.

Here is a basic but great gummy recipe (get deep moulds the little bear ones are shit. i use robots, dinos and dicks- each to their own)

4 tbs gellatin bloomed with 1.5 cups lucozade sport or similar NOT real fruit juice

 

6x pack hartleys jelly

1/2 cup canna-corn syrup

1/2 cup canna -coconut oil or butter

1 teaspoon citric acid

1 teaspoon guar gum

1.5 teaspoon lecithin 

(flavouring - i dont add any)

Melt it all in a bowl over steaming water and blend thoroughly for several minutes. Use cafe-ketchup dispensers to apply to mould trays and put in fridge for 20 mins before moving onto grease proof paper. Better to buy loads of moulds then do too many rounds and keep warming the mixture.
