    Is there a difference in the high when you eat weed instead of smoke it? It takes three times as mutch to get high, and i'm wondering if it's worth it.

    I either never ate enough to feel it (I hear it iw a lot more than
    smoking) or it just don't work for me. I made 28g brownies once
    and ate like maybee 1/4 of the dish that day and nothing untill I drank
    a beer then I went right to sleep. Personally I won't bother
    anymore the 28g would have lasted and been apreciated more and longer.

    Ah. I read that when D9-tetrahydrocannobinol is eaten, it mutates into a different chemical, wich is 3 times more psychoactive than the original THC. I'm definately giving this a try. With hash yoghurt.

    Put a bunch of butter in a spoon. Then put in about 2-2.5 grams of hash in it and heat it untill the hash has dissolved into the butter. Then mix it with a yoghurt of choice and eat. Very simple recipie [​IMG]

    you don't you eat it





    I ate about 6g in the brownies at once and it did nothing for me and another 6 later. I drank a beer and fell asleep

    Fuck. I tried it yesturday. Didn't do anything for me and tasted like shit. The only difference was that i felt no nausea, wich i usually do when smoking. Put 3g into it and felt a very week cerebral high. And i smoked a half joint today and got completely smashed.

    eating hash = terrible.

    Eating lumps of hash doesn't work. Try burning into a mug,adding boiling water and drinking the tea. It takes 50-90 minutes to kick in, but you'll get fucked up to an extent that's impossible from smoking.

    Eating is always very strong for SWIM. For those above who felt
    little to nothing, it can take a few times to learn how to cook it
    right. Eating gives a much more physical body load. SWIM
    feels very glued to the couch after eating some good brownies.

    Eating produces a longer lasting and more psychedlic high.

    To eat marijuana though you have to first make canabutter.



    here is good recipe i borrowed:

    "I usually cook with pot i don't want to smoke. Ask your dealer for some
    shake, they're usually glad to get rid of it. I shake the keif from he
    budshake and then use whats left. when i make butter i like to have at
    least 2 oz of material. the more the better. If you have some potent
    buds, you may not want to use as much, but i'd rather smoke the buds [​IMG]

    <ul>

    you need:
    [*]big pasta pot

    [*]big bag a' pot

    [*]1 and 1/3 stick butter

    [*]cheesecloth or nylon stocking

    [*]gloves (yellow dishwashing ones are fine.. the thicker the better though [*]because the butter gets hot)

    [*]tall somewhat flexible plastic cups

    [*]chopsticks or similar

    [*]refrigerator

    [/list]





    For a OZ, use 1 and 1/3 sticks of butter. (1 stick=1/2 cup) A bit will
    get lost in the buds so this way you'll have 1/2 a cup for your recipe.



    first grind up the bud into a fine powder or as close as possible to it. try to break down the big stems this will help later



    boil some water in a big pot that has a lid. put the butter in while
    it's warming up. once the butter is melted and the water is boiling,
    toss in the bud.



    let it barely simmer for at least 5 or 6 hours.. this makes sure you
    extract all of the thc and also 'activates it' or de-carbo-something
    which im too lazy to look up right now



    once it's been simmer for a long time your house should smell pretty
    nappy. smoke a bowl of the kind to help with that. then get the gloves
    on



    i use nylon stockings for this part but cheese cloth is apparently the
    prefered strainer. scoop, pour or otherwise get the butter/bud into the
    strainer over the plastic cup a nylon is cool cause you can get a lot
    in the tube. sqeeze the fuck out of it. watch out for stems which might
    rip the strainer



    once you've strained all the butter, put in a chopstick or two to make
    it easier to get the butter out later. stick the cup in the fridge over
    night.



    the next day, run a bit of hot water over the cup and pull on the
    chopsticks.. the butter will come out. do this over the sink because
    there is a bunch of nasty brown water under the butter. there might be
    a knappy layer of white/brown stuff on the bottom of the butter.. run
    it under hot water until it is gone.



    if you did it right you should have a big hunk of green butter. i melt
    it down a bit in the microwave and put it in a tupperware until i use
    it. i recommend using it in a day or two cause it goes bad quickly. use
    the butter in a recipe where you'd use regular butter."

    QGdoxl, are you refering to green dragon? I believe this is
    created by letting marijuana sit in vodka/grain alcohol for a long
    period of time. Don't know much about it but there some posts
    here about so just look around. Another method for making
    brownies is to use the instant brownie mixes that need oil in
    them. You can simmer your weed in this oil for a couple hours
    before using the oil for the brownie mix(filter weed out 1st).

    Yes, making Cannabutter can definately be tricky. The first
    couple times I tried to make brownies I had trouble controlling
    the heat of the butter(overcooked). This made the batch much
    weaker. However I have never made the Cannabutter with water as
    described by GDxCAT. This seems much easier than when I tried
    it with just the butter and weed.

    Um, here is another method to make a drink called bhang.




    Recepie (taken from Lycaeum):





    With the weekend coming up, you might find use for this recipe for bhang from Flavors of India by Shanta Nimbark Sacharoff.



    2 cups water

    1 ounce marijuana (fresh leaves and flowers of a female plant preferred)

    4 cups warm milk

    2 tablespoons blanched and chopped almonds

    1/8 teaspoon garam masala [a mixture of cloves, cinnamon, and cardamon]

    1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger

    1/2 to 1 teaspoon rosewater

    1 cup sugar



    Bring the water to a rapid boil and pour into a clean teapot. Remove
    any seeds or twigs from the marijuana, add it to the teapot and cover.
    Let this brew for about 7 minutes. Now strain the water and marijuana
    through a piece of muslin cloth, collect the water and save. Take the
    leaves and flowers and squeeze between your hands to extract any liquid
    that remains. Add this to the water. Place the leaves and flowers in a
    mortar and add 2 teaspoons warm milk. Slowly but firmly grind the milk
    and leaves together. Gather up the marijuana and squeeze out as much
    milk as you can. Repeat this process until you have used about 1/2 cup
    of milk (about 4 to 5 times). Collect all the milk that has been
    extracted and place in a bowl. By this time the marijuana will have
    turned into a pulpy mass. Add the chopped almonds and some more warm
    milk. Grind this in the mortar until a fine paste is formed. Squeeze
    this paste and collect the extract as before. Repeat a few more times
    until all that is left are some fibers and nut meal. Discard the
    residue. Combine all the liquids that have been collected, including
    the water the marijuana was brewed in. Add to this the garam masala,
    dried ginger and rosewater. Add the sugar and remaining milk. Chill,
    serve, and enjoy.





    It seems a bit labor intensive, but then it is meant as an offering to Shiva.





    Another recepie:



    A recipe for an alcoholic cannabis drink



    Hot Buttered Bhang


    In a saucepan, melt half a cube (1/8 pound) of butter or ghee.
    Crumble a good handful of marijuana tops or leaves (1/3 - 1/2 ounce
    [!$WoW$!]). Stir the grass into the molten butter. Continue stirring
    over medium heat for one minute. While it is hot or sizzling, add 8
    ounces of vodka. Be cautious that the hot butter does not make the
    mixture spatter. It is best to pour in the vodka swiftly. Continue to
    boil for 30 seconds or more, stirring all the while. A pinch or two of
    powdered cardamom seed may be added during the boiling. . . .





    After boiling as much as desired, strain the liquids. Press the mash in
    a strainer with the back of a spoon to remove all the juices. Discard
    mash or boil it again in fresh vodka to salvage more materials. Sweeten
    to taste with honey if wanted. Pour the liquid into 4-ounce wine
    glasses. . . . Serves two. [!!]





    This recipe is not only an efficient method of extracting the active
    principles from marijuana, and an excellent medium for assimilation
    (alcohol, butter and honey), but it also has a delicious and satisfying
    flavor. It is reminiscent of hot chocolate, but is much more pleasant
    to drink. It is one of the most swiftly absorbed cannabis concoctions.
    The effects of the grass may be felt in less than fifteen minutes.
    Cheers!"

    it seems like if you make the food right whatever it may be the weed will definitely get you high. I have tried weed brownies on occassion, definitely experienced a different kind of high. Definitely more of the body buzz and the effects seems to last a lot longer. Overally it seems like its worthwhile to cook some weed in your food. [​IMG]

    In my personal opinion eating pot is a waste because it takes a lot to get you high. I much rather smoke an ounce to my head than eat it.

    well, to each his own.

    I actually really like the eating high. I cant really choose though which i like more. They are both great in their own way.

    I've noticed that 1g orally ingested is the same to 0.3g smoked. Orally the effect is much longer than smoked and i find it more peaceful too.
