You have the cannabis edible to your lips, and you are about to take a huge bite. Out of the corner of your eye, you see the words: “100MG.” You think to yourself, “hmm, I wonder how strong is a 100MG edible
,” and then you type into a search engine. If this is you, congratulations, you are a responsible adult consumer! We have gathered responses from real Michigan people to help explain how strong these tasty treats are in terms of the high. Michigan-Edibles.com
wants to help you through this journey of eating your delicious 100MG Edible.
The first response Michigan-Edibles received when they asked how strong a 100MG edible was to Michiganders would be was, “WOAH! That is way too much!” Lots of new people think that even 5MG is strong. The overall consensus was: pace yourself or you are going to have a bad time!
“If they have never ate an edible before, the rule of thumb is:
GO LOW GO SLOW!!!!!”
Cannabis Edible Variables
Smoking marijuana and ingesting marijuana can be very different acts. Some people might be able to smoke all day but when they eat a 5 MG edible, be out for a weed nap. Some people might be able to smoke joints all day but can’t handle 10MG. It all depends on your personal tolerance. As well as how long and how frequent you personally eat edibles.
Getting the cannabinoids into your bloodstream might affect your high when eating a 100MG edible. If you ate earlier in the day or if you have ingested anything with terpenes in it, your high might be different.
Everyone single person’s cannabinoid metabolisms are different! There is a special enzyme called CYP3A4. This enzyme controls the body’s ability to absorb these cannabinoids. This is why some people can take very little cannabis edibles and feel really high, while some can eat a whole 100MG edible and feel very little.
Marijuana can be processed in many different ways. Understanding what is inside your edibles can help you gauge how many MG you should ingest for optimal medicating.
- Is the oil in the edible RSO, BHO, Distillate, CO2, Hash, or Rosin?
- Are these processed oils (decarbed completely, extracted correctly)
- What are the MG of the cannabinoids that is in it, THC, CBD, CBN, CBC, CBG
- What are the terpene concentrations? Terpenes help the cannabinoids past the blood-brain barrier which cares the medicine straight to the brain, which helps it work better
This doesn’t seem like something you would have to worry about in Michigan but if you eat your edible somewhere else, how “high” you are can be affected by how high you are!
Whats a cannabis edible compared to?
“I try to compare it to alcohol since most people have drank way too much at one point. Even though being way to drunk and way too high are different experiences, I feel it can be relatable in terms of having control over your body.
- Bowl = couple beers.
- Dab = couple jack and cokes.
- A high dose edible for a newbie = whatever amount of shots that would make you say, I never want to do that many shots again lol.”
How long do edibles last?
Cannabis edibles have very different effects compared to smoking. The time they take to activate can be any where from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Then the effects might last for as long as 4 hour to 10 hours depending on how much you have taken..
advocates for medicating responsibly at all cost. As adults you have the choice of what goes into your body. Making responsible choices ( eating very little and then waiting) can be the difference between a great experience and a terrible one.
