Personal preference. Eating weed is better for you, but is WAY stronger. When you eat cannabis your body produces a totally new psychoactive chemical called 11 hydroxy metabolite. You do not experience this when you smoke. So even experienced smokers may be humbled when they eat cannabis. If you think that the effects of eating it are too strong, Vape-ing is next next safest way to medicate. But i personally hate joints. Blunts, bowls, or vape tokes for me.

More than one way to skin a cat. I've burned or vaped in one way or another for ages. I am also a decent baker and good cook so edibles have been in my repitoir for years. I am really excited to be entering the arena of balms and tinctures. What a great adventure. For the most part only smoke joints in the car.

I never knew it was so much stronger if ingested.... hmmmm but wouldn't you need a larger quantity to make edibles??? (like I said.... new to all this.... still smoking joints too because I don't have the $ for a vape... hmmm maybe I'll ask Santa ha ha.

Feel Good!

Hi Strider,

Is there an area in the forums that gives suggestions how to cook with it? Wouldn't you go thru more quantities cooking with it vs. vaping or smoking? And yes I am that uninformed (ain't that just sad???) ugh.

Take care & B Happy

Hey PWB, you're only uninformed if you don't ask questions. We all started this adventure, "uninformed". I posted my "canna-budda" recipe in the cooking section. https://www.greenpas...uick-pictorial/ If you check the bottom of the thread there is a recipe for some killer canna-chip cookies, that will curl your toes. IMHO making the budda is a very efficient use of your plant. Good luck, and remember that you can use the budda in any recipe calling for shortening or oil.

An avid bong smoker myself, I was a serious joint fiend before I stopped smoking tobacco 3 years ago. Now, my bong and I are inseparable except when I accidentally break it while washing or something stupid like that. Tried a vaporiser a few times - not nearly as strong as the bong!! :unsure:

My hubby has neuropathic pain. We can smoke or vape quite a bit before he gets any relief, he will be stoned, but still hurting. But with edibles or RSO, he gets MUCH better relief!

My hubby recently had surgery to repair a broken ankle. The docs gave him oxycodone and hydrocodone, both powerful narcotics. He gets better pain relief from my cannabudder brownies! I've used up all of last year's grow and hoping I get a good harvest this fall.

I hope for you a great harvest this year!!!! I love the excitement of this time of the grow season... After many a crazy years on opiate pain pills, I am now almost clean of them, If not for smoking mj I could not be able to stand the pain I have, and if not for mj I don't know how bad my withdrawals, from me getting clean this past month, Don't know how much worse the DTs would have been,,

I have always smoked, and love having medables when I can if they are around.. I am hope to get into making sure I have the medables on hand more often,,, By smoking as much mj as I do from a pipe, I do feel the difference in my lungs at times, this is why it is important for me to do the medibles and maybe a vape in the future,, In the mean time, I am getting rid of the pipe and sticking with the bong... Wake and bake and medicate with coffee and the bong!!!!!

I used to smoke way too much tobacco (over 4 packs a day when I quit in the mid-80s), so no js for me!

Am trying out a vape - and I like the vape itself (a Magic Flight Launch Box) a lot, but - like Granny's husband - am not finding it sufficient for neuropathic pain.

Will be making a glycerin-based tincture once the harvest is nicely dried and cured, and maybe some budda or medibles as well...

Am taking pretty low doses of an opioid pain med when needed, but would greatly prefer to stick to Tylenol and cannabis. (I can't take anti-inflammatory meds, so I'm hoping to get as much CBD effect as possible...)

I felt the same way before I acquired my vape Deb! I do feel the difference in my lungs since making the shift to mostly vaping. I'll still enjoy the occasional toke or two of a pipe/joint with a few friends, but all of my personal sessions are vaping now. I love it and I have felt the increase in lung strength practically daily since!

I've been using the MFLB and loving it. It had a learning curve to it, but it wasn't too hard to pick up at all :]
