  • I signed up, and really hope there will be information on titrating (managing and measuring) the dose. I avoid edibles because I cannot tell how much I will consume, and in the past got too much. Yet I’m trying to find a way to help an elderly person with muscle spasms.

    Does anyone else have experience with managing the dose in edibles?

    • Does the “patient” like cheesy foods? Like take-n-bake pizza? Take a large marble sized nug and grind it over a slice of pizza as though it were oregano. Bake the take-n-bake pizza or whatever per its instructions. Eat the pizza. See how the patient feels after a couple hours…and again after about four hours. Regulate future dosage accordingly.

      • Tollerance can develope pretty fast from eating marijuana…a brownie that floored you one week will require more than one to do anything at all if eaten daily for another week. It’s pretty common sense. Alternate days of consumption to maintain tollerance, if it’s an issue.

        • Thanks for the advice. More and more people are eating edibles these days with dispensaries making them so convenient. People need all the help they can get to make good decisions. To tell the truth, edibles worry me a bit. I’ve seen several people go way over comfort levels when getting high that way.

    • Liz,

      I hope they discuss that too. Ask Kellie. I’ll bet they would try and include that information if they can. A lot of people have the same trouble.

    regulate what – the toxic effects of eating too much THC from an infusion laced cheese cake?
    yeah … i wanna know where it says cannabis eating is bad for your health. We’ve had, at least, the last thirteen years to find out.

    I bet that random guy individual is someone who is benefiting from the marijuana prohibition trade, and that he’s seeing the final number of his days as a marijuana prohibition advocate.

    • Change my advice above to “throw a handful of unrefined kief into a small pot with 1 block of butter, simmer for 30 minutes and pour it over popcorn.” I think that’s a great start for somebody who’s never eaten marijuana before. Thanks for knocking some sense into me, Harold.

      • just don’t drive for a bit afterwards, Radom Guy.

        • Driving is a MUST after eating marijuana, especially lots and lots of marijuana. It sends more electrolytes to the colon. Also, it’s good to get kids and pets hooked on weed…that means more customers for me!

  • A fabulous class! The instructor, Leah, taught me as much about perfect pie crusts and whipping cream as she did about infusions. I wanted to cling to her ankle and talk cooking all night.

    She discussed dosage, and her answer was, it’s an art of taste, not a science of measuring. Most interesting and highly subjective, alas, was her description of the spicy taste of THC. When infusing oils or creams, the intensity of the taste and tingle on the back of the tongue indicate how strong the infusion is.

    It wasn’t a precise answer, but a highly instructive one. Practice, practice. Oh well, better get started. 🙂

    • Liz, you made me wish I had gone. Mmm, pie crusts and whipping cream some of my favorite subjects!

      • You would have loved it! Leah is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and a very accomplished chef. I was very impressed with both her balancing cannabis and baking. She is as concerned with making excellent pastry as she is with infusion, and her methods of infusion preserve both the fats and maximize the bioflavinoid content. Controlling heat and not overprocessing are key. The result is a stronger botanical content in the infusion, as well as flaky pie crust.
