Not overdose to die,but overdose enough to throw up. I tried a pot brownie once and it was so good I are the whole thing when 1/4 was the max dosage. I couldn't tell if I was standing or laying down..I couldn't stop throwing up.. I got sick.

I don't think any amount of THC can accumulate at such levels to kill you unless your body had no way of discharging it in time like any other substance. I mean if your body can't eliminate excess nutrients from food, you'll die. As for . . .

. . . the burned particles and smoke that enter your lungs, I'm sure if you literally don't stop smoking weed or any substance for a few days straight, you'll have problems.

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.

There was a guy who drank so much soy sauce (I think a quart) that he almost died of salt overdose. I would say anything is possible.

That's the point of this question to OD on cannabis you would have to consume an impossible amount. I link further down to the wiki page.

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.

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...

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

Depends on what you mean by overdose. I've seen someone who "whitey-ed", or so it seems to be called. I thought it was a bit alarming but no one else was seriously worried.

Commonly most folks think death when you mention OD. Which is where I'm coming from with the question.

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.

If your definition of OD is death, fine. But you should look into THC overdose symptoms.

I hate taking modern medicine. I do fall into the "it's natural so not as bad/ we've been doing it for thousands of years" crowd though. Which is why I'm okay with natural things like shrooms and cannabis. Did you know breast milk has cannabinoids?

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.

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.

07/15/13 7:00 pm

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.

I am arguing possibility rather than probability. I believe that thc itself could be isolated and delivered in a concentrated form rather than using the plant itself.

Not really. It's either you can sit there and smoke/dap/vape/eat thousands of joints to OD or not. You physically can not consume that much cannabis before passing out. Hence it's impossible.
