Medicated Fruit Gushers 600mg
The last time I had gotten uncomfortably high was during judging for a High Times Cannabis Cup edibles competition years ago, well before the days when lab results on labels were the rule and not the exception. With the understanding that I have an extremely high tolerance, I did discover my effective dosing range through the process of researching this article, but I am not going to share that number with you. That is MY number. Your effective dose is likely to be VASTLY different from mine. What gets me high is likely to differ from the average person by 100 milligrams or more!
Consuming cannabis is not a contest to determine who can ingest the most, so it is far more important for you to determine your ideal range than compare it with someone else’s. There is no standard marijuana dose*, or even dosage range, that suits all individuals. Body type, weight, diet and metabolism all play a role in how different people experience weed edibles. The amount one person can comfortably consume could make another paranoid, disoriented, and nauseous.

While overdoing it with weed edibles isn’t usually dangerous and has never been fatal, it can be mighty uncomfortable. When experimenting with high dose edibles, it’s always a good idea to keep some CBD handy, since this cannabinoid acts like an antidote for those who have consumed too much THC. A few sprays of Bhang’s CBD breath spray and my uncomfortable, overly medicated high mellowed itself out almost instantly.
More importantly, don’t over-medicate in the first place. Start small and go slow, consuming only 10 mg. or even less if you consider yourself a lightweight or are eating cannabis for the first time. Wait at least 4 hours to see how you feel before eating more, since it takes time for cannabis to fully digest, especially if you’ve eaten a large meal that day. Try increasing the dosage by 5 to 10 mg. each day, continuing to go higher until you find a place where you are comfortable. Remember, you can always eat more but you can’t eat less!
