Your suggestion for an edible to put me to sleep :)
So I'll be going to the Chicago for 4 days (where I'll be needing to be up at 6am every day) in the next 2 weeks and I'm going to have a really hard time getting to sleep as I can't bring any weed over the border (yes i'm Canadian) and I smoke or vape weed every night to help me sleep. So my solution was going to be make some edibles that wouldn't attract the border ppl and would help me sleep for work the next morning. It sux but I had to go off weed for about 5 days before/after surgery and I couldn't get to sleep til 3am each night :\
So after that long explanation haha any suggestions of edibles that could help you sleep? I wanted to stay away from brownies and other high sugar foods as it will likely keep me up. At the same time I've had trouble eating some pot brownies before because the weed extract oil i made was very strong tasting and made the brownies hard to go down. I don't know if the only solution would be to use less oil which would then mean less of a high cause that would suck
Thanks again for the help, I'm really new when it comes to edibles
Cana anything is great..Lol Just got done with a batch of dank butter. easy to make cookies . or oil for brownies ..I so want to try oil my self,but butter is so easy and works and I have the dose down to a science ... people that do not smoke a lot I can knock out with one little cookie lol
fuck the papers give me the cookies
I made canna-chocolates this week. Very simple. high fat/chocolate ratio so if you make strong butter it would be quite potent.
Her are the ingredients:
2 parts chocolate to 1 part canna-butter Thats it. Use whatever chocolate you prefer.
So 10oz of chocolate would get 5oz of butter.
Set up a double boiler, a pot of water and a with a metal bowl will simply do. If you've never set up a double boiler look it up on line I'm sure there are good examples. Most people will have them in their kitchen. Place water in the bottom pot and chocolate in your top bowl.
Stir chocolate until complete melted. Add butter, stir into chocolate until incorporated in the chocolate.
remove chocolate from heat. Allow to cool for about 2-3 minutes so it thickens a little. Pour into chocolate molds or on a sheet of parchment of silicone pad.
Allow to cold on counter and then move to refrigerator.
I found it easy and about as tasty as MJ gets.
thanks for the replies!
only thing i noticed was they both seem a bit high in sugar, won't that keep me up a bit? Also I have a hard time eating too much sugar before bed, kinda hurts the stomach I find.
Although if sugar and cocoa mask the weed taste the best, I might be better off to do that. Just want something that will be easy to eat about an hour or two before bed and then have it knock me out
oat meal cookies all the way. Hides the taste,smell and about the healthiest for ya
fuck the papers give me the cookies
hard question to answer really since tastes differ from each person.. IMO make something like capsules... they are small easy to take in public and does not smell.
I would not risk going to another country with my green...
I like the oatmeal cookie idea!
@gioua - do you think the border control would notice edibles? If you bake weed cookies do they smell like weed? The capsule idea seems like it would be the easiest way to ingest, however, they might seem more suspicious to border control than cookies...
I left from CA to OR then WA then into CAN. I was at the Peace Arch in CAN- USA Border There were agents in the park area waiting. Granted there were no fences or any sort of border prevention there. I am in the opinion use it where it and yourself are legal.

weed smells like weed once cooked and a dogs nose is 1000x more powerful then ours.
I really know what you are going thru. I took my chance EVEN tho WA and OR are legal states as is CA I was not a legal patient there nor did I want to fork out 250$+ for med referalls in those states for the 7 days I was there.
Honestly dont risk it.. hit a buddy up in the area you are going to be in and see if they can help ya.
I'm strange when i eat I get wired and so does a few of my acquaintances, so try them at home first and make sure
your not like me. I do have a hi tolerance cause I smoke all day every day. And I can sleep it's just too much fun to
come here and BS with other patients on how I grow to how I use the end result and what I might grow next time.
I know some day I want to go back to Hawaii and I don't want to have to score the stuff right next door to a cop shop LOL!
Man am I rambling?? I ate a brownie 3 hrs. ago and it'd way past my bed time....

I have also even had a small bit of anxiety when using medibles. Mostly because it is so darn hard to figure out a dosage for you that will work consistently.
There have been times when I make a batch of edibles and one or more don't doo much one day a day or two later they might.
