What’s the most potent marijuana edible you’ve eaten? Most people I’ve asked have said 250-500mg the most they’ve had, and they said it was strong enough to knock them out. A few weeks ago, I was dared to eat a Kushie Kandy 1000mg Thin Mint chocolate bar. You’ll see 100mg and rarely and 200mg from Kushie Kandy, but when I saw these 1000mg bars, made with two full grams of Girl Scout Cookies nug oil, I didn’t hesitate to pull out my wallet. I had to purchase three because of how super-rare they are.
I waited until noon the next day to eat one whole 1000mg bar. I could clearly taste the weed, but it wasn’t the overwhelming oil taste that coats your mouth with yuck. Some edibles I’ve had get stuck to your teeth and leave you with a harsh BHO aftertaste. This candy bar did not taste like that at all. If I was eating this without knowing it was a 1000mg THC-infused chocolate bar, I would have never expected it had a bucket of medication in it. The taste of BHO is undeniably there, but subtle.
By 2:00 pm, I felt my stomach reacting to the THC-Infused edible. My eyes were having a difficult time focusing. For me, that’s a sign the edibles are kicking in. The specific feeling I was experiencing while under the influence of 1000mg is hard to describe: I felt like my thoughts were moving faster than I could react to them, and faster than anything physically around me. My mind was racing a million miles a minute, but I didn’t really have the energy to do anything. I had chores scheduled for the day: I needed to run to a few stores, cook and clean, and I managed to push through the laziness and get everything I needed done for the day.
At 4:00 pm, I noticed I was daydreaming very heavily. I was extremely lazy at this point. If I needed to get up to do anything, I felt like I was carrying dead weight. I was dragging my feet around the house, my eyelids were heavy, I felt like knocking out for the day, and it wasn’t even 4:30 pm! Not sure if it was the THC or CBN that gave me the effect, but I definitely felt my body entering into couch lock mode.
At 6:00 pm I was halfway through typing this article. It was incredibly hard to stay focused on typing. My mind just wandered all over the place. I had music playing in the background. If it wasn’t on, I think I would have been asleep already. It was raining outside, and I was rapt as I listened to it tap on my window. I was fighting sleep: yawning every two or three minutes.
I decided to turn off the music and put on the movie Inception because I felt it perfectly described the way I was feeling at the moment. Once the movie started, the worst thing I could have done was lay down on the couch and get comfortable, but that’s what I did. Thankfully I didn’t have any water running or anything cooking on the stove because I don’t even remember falling asleep.
I woke up nearly 12 hours later about 7:15 am feeling amazing! My sofa is pretty shitty, so it’s amazing that I slept so long and so soundly.
When we smoke or dab, we get the “high” from Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol. When we ingest THC through consuming edibles, it has a much more potent psychoactive effect once it passes through our liver. Someone could be the heaviest smoker and dabber, but one simple edible can wreck the day. That’s why it’s very important to dose responsibly.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience under the influence of 1000 mg of THC. The smell of the Thin Mint chocolate bar was intoxicating. Enticing my sweet tooth to bite down and grind. It’s such a great combination of good chocolate and pure essential oil of cool peppermint. No overpowering, uncomfortable lingering taste of BHO, great texture with the rich chocolate, and crunchy chocolate/peppermint cookie center, and the warm coating of the BHO and creamy chocolate inside the mouth ultimately make this chocolate bar superb. Intense in every sense, but superb.
Awareness is primarily what I’m trying to promote here, not simply overloading your body with more THC than you feel comfortable handling. Taking the necessary precautions to administer the correct dosage of THC. For the curious people out there wanting to eat edibles for the first time, that mantra should be “less is more.” Taking more than you can handle won’t kill you, but it can lead to feeling uncomfortable or a minor panic attack. I am a heavy smoker and a somewhat reasonably heavy dabber, and edibles can easily ruin my day if I have too much.
