Ten years ago, buying cannabis was like visiting the Wild West, especially when it came to procuring and ingesting edibles. Before California legalized the recreational use of Cannabis in 2016, dosing could get a bit wild. And in the very early days of legalized weed, you would buy edible cookies or candies wrapped in foil or Saran Wrap. They would come dosed in one of two ways: strong and less strong, and both were powerful to the point of frightening.
These days, thanks to regulations, getting a perfect dose is so easy and totally commonplace. That is, however, unless you accidentally take too many edibles. Overestimating one’s dosage is still pretty commonplace. Not only that, there are a variety of reasons that someone could end up blasted. This includes tolerance, age, metabolic rate, and how you consumed said cannabis. Concentrates are still the strongest form of consumption, which is why you feel like you’re dying after you dab.
