The Problem with Edible Strengths
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, October, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
If you've never eaten anything with weed in it, stop reading this article right now, go find a bud brownie, and eat it. Then come back and continue reading. Eating your pot is one of the best ways that you can get stoned. It's a completely different high, not to mention you kill two birds with one stone by curing the munchies before you even get them.
I've never been in a dispensary. I make my edibles by dumping whatever amount of bud butter I feel like. I have no labeling system and from what I've heard, neither do the dispensaries. This is somewhat of a bummer because everyone should be using the same system to rate the strength of their weed food. Not everyone wants to sink in to their couch for hours. Some people really do need just the right amount of weed to make the pain that they feel go away.
My knowledge of the current system of rating the potency of edibles goes something like this: sometimes, something is a XXX. Other times, it's a 10X. You might see 1000X. I have no idea what any of that means. Why is there a need for X's? Salvia and spice are labeled with X's so someone needs to explain to me why the medical weed for patients is labeled with the same letter as the fake, dangerous trash that is sold at the corner gas station that may or may not be a heroin front.
What's wrong with keeping it simple? A scale of 1-10 has never really failed before so why not have a universal way to label the edibles on that scale? An edible at a 1 level would be the weakest strength. Now, I understand that everyone who makes the edibles makes them with different amounts of weed. So say that there's a banana bread loaf at the dispensary with a label of 1 on it. Now, on the label, it should say that there's y-amount to x-amount of grams under the one. If it's a weak loaf, let's say 7-10 grams. That would be labeled with a 1. Makes sense right? Then, the 2 label would be 10-15 grams or so, you know?
A system like that would be a much easier way to tell patients what they're going to get out of their medicine. And as I said before, putting the same letter rating on my weed as that crappy spice is just disrespectful, am I right? ;) Having a universal system will make selling the edibles so much easier to the patients who aren't exactly sure of the doses they're getting rather than having to refer to an absurd amount of x's. Patients need to know how much medicine is in their food and I think that a simple number system would be perfect for that!
The Instagram Series; Top Five Grower Feeds

I express my respect for marijuana growers more than anyone else. They work so hard and put such love in to their harvest, how can you not give them the utmost respect for the weed they produce? From germination to harvest, I've found some of the best growers that Instagram has to offer, thanks to my followers. Out of all of the growers that were mentioned, I was only able to pick five. All of you are awesome and I wish that I could specifically mention every grower because we wouldn't have weed without you guys!
1. @loaf408 & @mrs_loaf408
Talk about dank plants. If you're not following these two, you haven't been paying attention. They produce some of the best looking plants that I've ever seen, packed with crystals and big ass buds! Not only that, but every once in a while, @loaf408 gives AMAZING grow advice to novice growers and answers questions. Make sure you're paying attention because he only does this Q&A once a week!
This is a new feed for me but WOW! Gorgeous plants and some beautiful outdoor shots, which is nice because a lot of grow ops are indoors. it's nice to see some blue sky behind those buds, am I right? @faderphoto also hosts the occasional giveaway, including dope glass that you should definitely check out!
Growers everywhere risk their safety to bring us quality medicine. Unfortunately for this current AZ resident, he's hung up his gloves and stopped growing for now. Laws against growing are absolutely ridiculous in some states and AZ happens to be one of those states where the risks outweigh the benefits. Stick with this feed while he's working on moving back to California, where his weed will once again bless feeds all over Instagram!
Another feed that I've never seen before but wish that I had! Full of cookies, diesel, and OG, this feed is sure to bring a daily dose of fire to your Instagram life! Gorgeous weed, roots for days, and even some macro shots of the buds that get produced in the grows. A highly recommended feed if you want to see some seriously great genetics1
Did you guys really think that I could write about growers and NOT mention these guys? They grow all over the place, travel to grow ops in countries that most of us will never visit. @strainhunters has some of the best plants, the most formidable genetics, and some of the coolest up-close shots of plants emerging from their seeds. One of the highest (lol) recommended grow feeds on Instagram, definitely.
