Yeah I hate edibles. Either I don't get high, or I get a horrible high.

I agree, edibles aren't my cup of tea. I've had anxiety attacks where I almost called 911 lmfao!!

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

luckily for you all, every thing in nevada is lab tested so you know exactly how strong the edibles are.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

$55 out the door @ Essence. Not that impressed by these, but I do have a very high tolerance. 4 Gummies and the brownie at once was a good enough dose to put me at ease for the rest of the day/night.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

if you have a high tolerance, you shouldn't be eating 10mg edibles

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

Does Nevada provide lower prices if you have a medical card?

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

that stuff is garbage. it's made with industrial hemp. sorry you bought the 30 pack lol. just get a 20:1 CBD:THC tincture if you want to give weed to your dog.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

if a cannabis company made an edible marketed toward humans with those ingredients, it would be laughed at and called a scam. there's nothing active in it. walmart could sell it if they wanted to.

she seemed to like it.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

yea the dispensaries love the stuff, the markup must be insane, because there's nothing in it.

i'm guessing there's an additional factor in play, which is the ethics of giving marijuana to a dog. there's a good argument that it's not the right thing to do. so dispensaries can sell this with a clean conscience knowing the dog won't be altered in any way. if they sell a real product and market it toward dogs, there will be a ton of pissed off owners who come back and complain after they overdose their dog and it pukes/has a bad time.

i give RSO to my dog and she likes it. but i give her a tiny tiny amount, probably about 1mg of THC. the first time i did it she slept for hours. she gets excited when i get the syringe out so i don't feel guilty about it.

to really help the dog you'll have to go to a legal market and purchase activated cannabis oil that has CBD:THC in at least 1:1 ratio. there are products that are 2:1, 5:1, 10:1, 20:1.

problem with giving your dog any old weed off the street is that most likely it will have 0% CBD, which is the molecule that is the most beneficial. if you're extremely lucky and it's really good weed it will be .5% CBD.

Keep in mind I don't know what they look like or how the package is labeled. I'm assuming any vape pen would work so that likely isn't an issue, but is bringing back the concentrate a problem?

i recall reading an article from the leader of TSA at mccarran airport, this isn't a direct quote, but he said something similar to you should be able to transport an ounce of weed in your checked bag undetected.

he acknowledged that it is illegal to transport weed through the airport, and said if found would be forwarded to the police, but TSA agents are not looking for it.

they are scanning a zillion bags and are looking for things that are going to explode. while illegal, weed poses to threat to airline safety. so it doesn't "set off the alarm" so to speak.

i have one friend who came and went home with 10 vape cartridges in his checked bag, got home fine. another friend went home with an 8th, a gram of shatter, and a glass dab rig, all in the checked bag.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

Thanks for the reply. So, let me put it another way. Say I buy some vape cartridges and put them in a box for tobacco cartridges. Is there anyway for security at the airport to identify them as pot and not tobacco?

Conceal it in a makeup kit or a tackle box and check in a larger bag

Small chance they'd ever find it and even if they did they'd just toss it

I've been flying with my vape pen in my bag for 5 years. I've been to several states including Texas and never had an issue. I'd be more worried about them stealing it then you getting in trouble.

Re: Recreational Weed Sales to Start July 1st

the difference is obvious if you know what you are looking at. just take them out of the original packaging and you will most likely be fine

If it's Vegas, the local TSA are probably bigger stoners than you and would recognize it.
