Hello @Fatz1973 @RPgrower @Caligurl good morning, hope you all are well and well baked this morning. I am. My wife is 65 and has never smoked, not even tobacco. She wants to smoke but her lungs can’t handle it. Ive tried rolling joints with filters, put crushed ice in the bong, got her some gummies. That was a mistake. She took 1/2 and got very sick. I did 2 and hardly felt anything. Do you have any advice?
A vaporizer like the volcano could help
@Kj5879 thanks, I thought of that but they are expensive. Is the smoke really smooth?
Sometimes bongs are hard for girls to use and are generally for getting bigger hits so i would recomend a chiller pipe. Its a hollow glass bowl but its filled with silicone that wont freeze in your freezer but the silicone will hold the cold long enough to smoke a bowl and its easier to take smaller hits so itll be more mellow
Thanks medicine man, I will look for one.
In my experience yes.
It’s Only harsh if you pull too hard. Or run it too hot. Or too dry herb.
Edit : btw. I have a different style than the one mentioned above.
Thañks, do you know if the hand held vaporizers are any good? I have seen them starting at $50
If you have access to edibles look for some smaller doses to start her on. I’ve also found edibles with equal or more cbd to have a slight leveling effect on the buzz. Something like 2mg thc with 2mg cbd would probably be less imposing on her to get started with. She could always take them multiple times each day, and this would build up her tolerance over time.
I have an old school table top one that works for me. Only 50$ at the time.
Not sure on the cheaper hand held ones. Don’t have much exp with those.
I’ve looked at table top units, they start at $200 & up now. Can’t afford that right now. Getting some good advice from everyone
The gummies I bought were 120mg ño wonder she got sick
Might sound weird, but my wife refuses to smoke out of anything. That initial first puff is over whelming for her, so she gets blowby which is basically an old school second hand shotgun hit. 2 after dinner and 3 before bed. Remember back in the day when youd share your hit with your gf?
Far out man, never would have thought of that
Y’all gonna have fun
Good morning All!!! @Dj351 i have read your posts and will be on a bit later. Today is my wife’s last day of vacation so I will be led around by my back all day getting everything completed that we haven’t yet this week!!! Love the power trowels that’s the way to go!!! I’d say make sure you are using the thinnest rolling papers. thick papers can be a cough trigger too
Exactly…in my earlier yrs…just being in a small bathroom with friends smoking (when i had no interest) would ALWAYS light me up… second hand is no joke
Must have hit the wrong thing and deleted my post…
Anyways, yeah, to make a long story short a Vape pen would be my suggestion. Easier to control, less harsh than true smoke and seems to be a “cleaner” high so to speak.
Yes, you have to pay specific attention to labeling and make sure you get from reputable source. There are many of these smaller dose options available.
I would even go as far to cut the 2.5mg’s in half. My wife takes 2.5mg regularly which is half of the 5’s we typically get. Well, long story short, we bought 10mg gummies (on sale 2 100mg packs for $35) that have a half line that equals 5mg. She ate half a 10mg yesterday and did not like the ride and could not get off…I’ll remember for next time but i felt like and asshole lol. It was a “half” dose but half of a 10mg, not a 5mg. I wont be forgetting that again, she didnt fault me but it took about 4-6 hours for her to get back to normal after a 2 hour nap…
She probably won’t be taking gummies for awhile. She had a real bad trip, hallucinations, the devil was chasing her.
