    Hello. : )

    I was wondering if anyone here knows someone who has tried brownies, or any baked goodness with cannabis in it, and could post swiy's experiences or advice for swim.

    I have only drank in the past, and has definatly gotten contact high on occassion from his friends smoking. He's never intentionally done any drug other than that though. I want to try pot for their first time, yet doesn't really want to smoke it. He's done some research and some people have said that ingestion gives a much more intense feeling, and lasts much longer (up to twelve hours).

    I was wondering if this more intense, long lasting high could be too much for a first-timer with only alcohol and second-hand experiences to start with?
    He knows it can be difficult to tell how much your using when eating it. Again, he really doesn't want to smoke even though you'll probobly suggest he starts out with that, but any advice or reports from swiy's experiences are appreciated.

    thanls :)

    SWIM strongly suggests you try to smoke it first. Don't forget that marijuana is a psychedelic drug, eating cannabis has more intense high then if you have smoked it. Since You has only done alcohol, it would be wise to experience of feeling high after smoking it. You could possibly eat it, but as is too often with people who aren't experienced with weed and will eat it, they will eat too much and may feel a bit overwhelmed.

    SWIM's ex-gf recently had her first hash brownies experience and she had smoked 2times previously to that. She got extremely paranoid and she had a pannick attack and basically cried the whole night. I tried to reason with her, but like everyone else, she blamed the drug for the bad experience.

    Anyways, if you insist, check out www.smokingwithstyle.com to find a few recipes including brownies and cookies.

    Welcome to the board! In the future, please use the search engine before starting a new topic.

    Pot brownies may not the easiest way to go for a first time experience. If You does decide to go that route, swim highly recommends devoting a long period of time (5+ hrs) as the effects of ingested marijuana take quite a while to fade. Swim also recommends this in the daytime and outdoors--a camping trip or an uncrowded park would be ideal. Because of the increased duration and (usually) increased intensity, eating is much more of a "trip" than smoking.

    Smoking has a much quicker onset than eating (see chart at http://www.erowid.org/plants/cannabis/cannabis_effects.shtml) and also dissipates from your system much more quickly. Smoking peaks within 5-10 minutes; eating peaks after 1-2 hours.

    The key to having a good time with any drug is knowing your tolerance, and ingesting a comfortable amount. Because the onset of eaten marijuana is so slow, it's harder for a first time user (or even an experienced user) to estimate the hit. Whatever You does, have fun, and please post a trip report! :D

    I agree with the rest that you should try smoking it first to feel the effects ....

    But....when one gets the chance or he/she really really doesn't want to smoke it they should try brownies...yes it takes awhile for the effects to kick in but in swims opinion it provides the best and most intense buzz and lasts alot longer than smoking.....it is well worth the time and effort....be forwarned though, it does take you by suprise sometimes....

    Bongo describes smoking cannabis as be escorted gently into a large room full of amusement-park rides to chose from. He would desribe eating a good amount of such as being pulled up by his eyelids rather quickly and finding himself in the world of Alice In Wonderland with no rabbit hole to be seen.

    Bongo, too, would suggest it be smoked by a novice - if tried at all. Otherwise the weekend should be cancelled, and a sitter brought in to handle any tasks requiring lucidity.

    People have also felt rather sick to the stomach after someone consumed hash cake in amsterdam. these swims felt very nauseous, had to lie down for several hours and basically passed out.
    So be especially careful of hash cakes of unknown potency.

    Swim shared strong brownies with a couple of friends who had never tried weed, and they got really paranoid and shit. Try smoking a little bit first to get used to it, its not a drug thats "best the first time" so it doesnt matter.

    And when cooking use 3 times more weed than when smoking.

    My friend Dearth had a good way of ingesting hash, seeing as it isn't as easy to make into brownies and it doesn't take as much as weed.

    Take an oreo and take off the top. Scoop out a little bit of the white creme in the center. Take a spoon and put butter in it. Then crumble some bits of hash into the spoon as well. Cook the hash and butter together on the spoon by putting a lighter underneath. When it melts down a bit pour the mixture into the middle of the oreo and put the top back on. Put the "special" oreo into the freezer for 15 minutes. Pick a special time, and enjoy!
