Then you just haven't done it right. There can be nausea and vomiting, or extreme discomfort while looking like a ghost. Overdose = too big a dose. Not lethal, but not recommended.

Well, there's habituation. It more commonly happens to people who haven't tried it before, like those seniors, but no one is immune. It just takes a bigger dose (or a more potent variety). Like too many of those brownies in one go.

 
Oh yea, I am fully aware I got that in spades.{#Lol}

As far as I've heard or read, an OD of weed is much more associated with "food stuffs" than it is with smoking, e.g.: since the effects are not as quickly experienced, user may ingest more than is advisable.

 
Precisely that is what I was saying.

True.  But you and I both smoke.  Lots of people (including my wife) do not want to smoke.  Period.  These people are not interested in smoking anything.

Carefully eating a small amount of edibles and then patiently waiting results in a lethargic deep sense of relaxation and, like smoking, distracts from any pain.   

FWIW, I fully expect the number of North American adults who consume edibles to triple or more over the next decade.   Hopefully, these new edible consumers will be very, very careful so as to not accidentally poison others.  

Blowing cannabis smoke in other peoples' faces is not cool.  Poisoning folks with edible cannabis is not cool.

So sad.  Edibles have such potential for folks who want to medicate for sleep and pain or to substitute for alcohol.   Yet it has to be used so carefully. 

Getting the dosage right is hard, hard enough that an experienced pot head friend of mine overdosed his wife a couple of times so she no longer wanted to try.  

Anybody who slips edible pot to unaware consumers deserves jail time.

Utah, I'm not surprised.  Hawaii ... there are too many other great things to do there.  Funny about Hawaii, the favorite vacation place for locals is Las Vegas.  I learned that out in the water there, chatting while waiting for waves one afternoon.

No skin off my back anyway, don't gamble. 

Just go into our Hard Rock Rocksino and head to the buffet.  {#Hungry}

Is CBD a Miracle Cure or a Marketing Scam? (Both.)

Cannabidiol is caught between two worlds.

from the February 2019 issue - view article in the Digital Edition
Jennifer Aniston uses it for anxiety. Podcast host Joe Rogan applies it for elbow pain. You can buy dog treats infused with it, as well as facial scrubs and hand lotions, tinctures, and vaporizer cartridges. It's used as an ingredient in cocktails, beer, and gummy worms. It's sold at Amish markets and at fancy boutiques and at prepper depots. In October, it received the ultimate blessing for a trendy new cure-all: It was the subject of a multipart special on daytime basic cable hosted by Dr. Oz.

"It" is cannabidiol, or CBD, a compound contained mostly in the flowers of the female marijuana plant but also in the burlier hemp plant—both strains of Cannabis sativa. Like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD attaches to receptors throughout the body. But unlike THC, it doesn't alter perception or sharpen the appetite. Instead, people who use pure CBD report feeling calmed and relaxed. As Aniston recently told Us Weekly, "CBD helps with pain, stress, and anxiety. It has all the benefits of marijuana without the high."

But alongside all the celebrity buzz and bright marketing claims, there is another, more inspiring type of story about CBD: Children wracked by dozens of severe epileptic seizures a day who are suddenly well, their desperate parents weeping in relief. Although there is a near-complete absence of data concerning casual, low-dose use in lollipops or scented skin creams, a growing body of scientific evidence shows the efficacy of large doses of pure CBD for treating certain dire medical conditions.

The growing universe of CBD products—powerful cures and spa-day fun alike—is threatened by overzealous regulators, some of whom insist that CBD be classed among the most dangerous drugs. That means the people who stand to benefit most—the sickest and most desperate CBD users—remain at grave risk.

CBD, then, is caught between two worlds: the medical reality of its effectiveness in large doses on the one hand, and the popular image of a tasty, calming, faddish cure-all on the other.

The Return of Reefer Madness
Nationwide, marijuana legalization is becoming more normal. Colorado’s dispensaries are hailed as an economic success story, and other states are following suit—New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has indicated he’ll support legalization after New York City’s choice to gradually decriminalize the drug. The trend is global: Canada recently joined Uruguay in fully legalizing cannabis, and Lebanon is also mulling legalization.

Marijuana legalization has always had its opponents—including the alcohol lobby, which wants to protect its monopoly on legal intoxicants, and the prison/industrial complex, which fears a decrease in the number of nonviolent drug offenders who keep jail cells full. Now the reactionaries have another champion athwart history: former New York Times journalist Alex Berenson. (...)
