You can not OD on cannabis it's physically impossible. You would have to smoke something along the lines of a telephone pole to OD, you would pass out long before that would happen.

You said it's physically impossible to OD on it and then proceeded to explain how you could OD on it. Even though it takes a lot more than you can consciously consume, you can still OD on it.

Overdoses don't always result in death. It can also result in permanent damage.

If you can not consume enough to OD before passing out then how is it possible?

Lets see if the "reefer madness" still alive and well.

No you can not overdose on cannabis, you would have to smoke a joint the size of a telephone pole to die from an OD. You would pass out long before then.

Isn't it possible to concentrate it? If someone has never smoked it before and get a real strong dose? I don't know but I will believe it.

I understand and respect that, I use to be like that for the longest time. When ever I do use cannabis, which is few and far between, I feel like I come out with a better understanding of myself and the inner workings of my psyche.

Possible, yes. But you'd pass out from smoking way to much before you could smoke the amount, which means your friends would have to pretty much keep popping a joint into your unconcious mouth.

Smoking probably not efficient enough of a delivery system. It may be possible to distill the thc into a concentrated form and directly inject or vaporize in an adequate quantity to cause an od but I'm no doctor.

Huh, interesting. Gotta be traces at most though. Anyway...I'm not one of those "it's bad because it isn't natural" people, I just want full, non-numbed consciousness at all times. And there are the what-ifs, ODing like you mentioned.

Lets legalize all the safe drugs.

Pot, acid, shrooms, etc etc.

That's the point to OD and cannabis it's such a ridiculous amount of it (telephone pole). You would pass out long before that or any other "serious damage" happens. So how is it possible if you physically can't consume that amount.

Ah well no I've never heard of that. I suppose if you shot enough of the liquid form into yourself it would eventually have some harmful effect, but I expect it would take some kind of ridiculous quantity.

Honestly, it has made no difference where I live. CO is weed Mecca. They're aiming to open up shops in about a year.

Direct injection? As in shooting up? Please explain to me how that would work hash oil is more like a goo the liquid...

Vaping is the same as smoking you couldn't consume enough before you passed out.

It's really interesting stuff you're cannabinoid receptors are up in running in the fetus by 14-20 weeks. Drs are starting to believe the cannabinoids in the milk tell the child how to start feeding by giving it "the munchies" basically.

Which is way I said physically possible, it's not you would pass out before you would even get close.

Rlands- may I ask why? Is it fear? Fear of what can happen if you did dosage wrong/ of imprisonment if caught ect...?

Again, I ask, where did you get that such a quantity would be required?

Part of the fun is hunting for the shrooms rlands. Youll go over hundreds of non active mushrooms before finding that precious little psilocybe. The thrill of the hunt is a high in its self.

No you would pass out long before you could smoke a tree worth of cannabis at one time. That makes it physically impossible to OD.

07/15/13 8:43 pm

Depends on what concentrate you're talking about. Hash oil/wax- no you can't. Same thing applies you can't consume enough to OD before passing out. Medically concentrate stuff like the liquid THC- yes you can over dose. I just don't consider that...

Whoa really? That makes a lot of sense but it's kind of crazy. Makes you wonder why it's illegal now if babies rely on it anyway haha

... To be cannabis. That IMAO turns it into straight THC and cannabis isn't straight THC or that high in concentration.

The ratio of cannabis material required to produce a fatal overdose to the amount required to saturate cannabinoid receptors and cause intoxication is approximately 40,000:1.......

A typical marijuana "joint" contains less than 10 mg of THC, and one would have to smoke thousands of those in a short period of time to approach toxic levels
