My Experience With Edibles: An amusing relationship
The first time I tried cannabis I opted for the infamous pot brownie. A concerned friend pointed out the effects of this product thus; I just ate a small piece. Nonetheless this product did not affect me, and I didn’t bother eating some more that evening. It occurred to me that maybe the brownie was not a pot brownie but a regular one or I was insusceptible to cannabis.
A few of months later, in an attempt to learn more about marijuana, I tried my second edible with the same thoughts in mind thinking that was It wouldn’t affect me. Everybody else would be high except me. In spite of my assumption this time the weed affected me.
To be honest, I was afraid of smoking and chose to use edibles claiming food was safer and healthier even though it is odd to consider brownies healthy given that their main ingredient is sugar. I spent the following months trying to discover more about the edibles. Having my senses altered by this product was delightful.
My husband and I did an edible together when we began dating. The memory of the chocolate bar wrapping and the taste of the chocolate is still very vivid in my mind. The night preceding that day we had each only a tiny piece of the chocolate. Thus, we only felt a mild effect. The following afternoon we took some more and went for a walk.
We were stoned out of our minds, beyond what we had previously experienced. The effects of the marijuana lasted for about fourteen hours. The feeling was exhilarating, it was like we were connected to nature. Later we watched a Harry Potter movie which had us in tears when we thought about of the trauma all the characters had to undergo at a tender age of eleven years.
The experience was awesome and felt like it would never end, fourteen hours felt like fourteen days. We had mixed up feelings, we felt separated and connected, terrified and at the same time excited, out of control but also had a sense of control. The fourteen hours were like a lifetime.
I will never forget that day. That particular day was one of the final moments we shared edibles. Later I became accustomed to smoking. I became fascinated by the culture of growing, storing and maintaining marijuana. It is said that bhang has the most extended lifespan when stored properly. I say marijuana has the longest lifespan when taken in a brownie.
