FAQ: HOW MANY DOSES OF AN EDIBLE DO I NEED AT A TIME?
Edibles hit everybody a little bit differently. Most people would say it’s more of a body high especially since I usually use Indica to make my oil or butter. THC binds to fat cells so to get the best effect from your edible you should eat a small meal high in fat 45 min to an hour before you eat your edible. Some fatty foods include: avocado, cheese, dark chocolate, nuts and full fat yogurt. With edibles, the cannabinoids are metabolized in your liver instead of going immediately into your bloodstream and straight to your brain like smoking so they can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in but the high is stronger than when you smoke. You can compare it to alcohol consumption in the sense that people who are smaller tend to feel it sooner and sometimes harder so they would need less of a dosage then a larger person. How much you need to take at a time depends also on your tolerance. How often do you smoke? Do you need to smoke a lot to get high? For the first few times trying edibles (especially with a new company) it’s always better to start off with a low dosage. The standard dose according to Colorado’s edibles dosing guidelines is 10 milligrams. Now the following is what I have experienced through my own clients: Those who don’t smoke or very rarely ever smoke should only need about 10 to 15mg at a time. Those who smoke moderately need about 30mg and frequent stoners tend to eat about 50mg or more although its actually not necessary. Most people are just too impatient to wait for the effects of the edible to kick in or they don’t know how to get the most out of their edible. Over-medicating isn’t dangerous per se but I would advise you eat them in a safe place with people you trust in case you do “over indulge” because I have heard stories of people hallucinating although its never happened to me and I’ve eaten quite a lot of edibles in my day. You will most likely get severe munchies, a case of the giggles and take a long nap if you eat too much. Once you get the hang of how much you need to eat on average you can eat them more freely. My personal favorite dosage is 65mg. I get petty blasted but not so much that I have to go to sleep. And I personally prefer to eat edibles when I know I’m not going to smoke for a while like I’m going to a wedding or something for example or a few hours before bed. It’s typically a strong pain reliever even for those with really serious pains such as arthritis. My grandma who has arthritis and cancer uses my edibles as pain medication and a sleep aid. My mother also uses them for those reasons because of her mild scoliosis, sciatica and insomnia. All in all you have to test it for your self. Eat a fatty meal and wait an hour then eat your edible. Start small! If you don’t ever smoke start with 10 mg. If you smoke moderately you could try 30mg. Give it time (at least 45 mins) to kick in before you eat more and if you do eat more only take 10mg more. And remember these guidelines are for beginners or people who I’m not familiar with eating edibles. If you know you can eat 100mg at a time and be chill then do you boss 💚✨
He would hate that you complain about it because for his eyes, you are just fine but he would try to help to make you feel better. Also he wouldn’t know what else to do if you keep complaining.

Do you have a list of best to worst pellet brands? My girls are currently on fruit zupreem which I learned is not the best. I have the option of switching them to natural zupreem, lafebar pellets or pretty bird. Do you know which is best?
I don’t have a list of all of them but I get asked this a lot so hold on tight we’re going for a ride! Quick note that I am not a vet or nutritionalist, I’m just collecting information from various sources, if anything is wrong, missed, or misinterpreted please let me know so I can correct it. Ordered from best to worst, I would personally only feed the top 4.

Have any of you heard of Repashy Grub Pie, or have any opinions on/experience with it?
Animals on Youtube seem to really love it when it’s presented to them, and the ingredients look good, at least to me.
Here’s the writeup on it, taken from Northern Gecko:
“It is with great excitement and anticipation that Repashy launches “Grub Pie”, a new product in the Repashy line of gel food premixes. Repashy Grub Pie is a dietary formula designed for insect-eating animals of all kinds. We believe that this revolutionary commercial diet will prove to be a “game changer” in the way we raise, breed, and keep reptiles, amphibians, and other insect-eating species.
Repashy Grub Pie features over 75% cold-pressed Black Soldier Fly Larvae Meal (BSFL) with a smell and flavor that incites an almost instinctual feeding response from all kinds of insect-eating animals. Even species that require moving prey and show little interest in freeze-dried insects or pelleted foods currently on the market, have been irresistibly attracted to the smell and taste of RepashyGrub Pie on the first offering. Some individuals of certain species may require “teasing” or training in the first instance to achieve a feeding response and get them to recognize it as a food source. Bearded dragons, leopard geckos, all skinks, fat tail geckos, dwarf monitors, day geckos, giant geckos, turtles of all kinds, and aquatic amphibians typically find Repashy Grub Pie irresistible. You can see a compilation of user-submitted videos on our Repashy Grub Pie YouTube Playlist .
Our BSFL Meal was first introduced in ourRepashy Grubs ‘N’ Fruit gecko diet in 2013 and we had been waiting for our production capacity to increase enough to introduce it into other new formulas. Although we have known the value of insect meals since we started developing exotic animal diets in 1995, we were limited by the availability of a reliable US source of high-grade insects; insects raised under stringent conditions to assure they are of best quality. Insect meal from foreign sources, such as China, did not meet our quality control standards. After much effort to establish a new locally-raised supply of insects, we can now state that our BSFL are raised on feed of our specification, right here in the USA, allowing us to offer the highest quality, insect-based diets in the pet market.
Nutritionally speaking, Repashy Grub Pieconsists of nearly 80% cold-pressed black soldier fly larvae. Cold-pressing removes about half the fat content without the high temperatures and chemical exposure of other processes that can denature proteins and degrade nutrients. This process lowers the fat content of soldier fly larvae to a more ideal 12%, which in turn increases the protein values to over 55%. The meal also contains a nearly perfect 2:1 calcium to phosphorous ratio. It takes over 1,000 BSFL to make one ounce of Repashy Grub Pie, and one kilo ofRepashy Grub Pie contains 35,000 BSFL, whichhas a superior nutritional density than 50,000 mealworms!
Repashy Grub Pie has been formulated to be a complete diet, replacing the need for live insects in the diet of omnivores and insectivores. Many insectivores in captivity are raised on a single food source of either crickets, or mealworms (i.e. leopard geckos). While it has been proven that an exclusive diet of supplemented mealworms provides all the necessary nutrition for good health and breeding, we currently recommend thatRepashy Grub Pie be fed as part of a balanced diet and not exclusively.
Although we have been doing extensive trials over the last two years with great success (even when fed exclusively), it will take more time and research to assert with 100% confidence thatRepashy Grub Pie provides a complete diet for insectivores, as an exclusive food source. With further internal trials, and the feedback of Zoos and advanced breeders/hobbyists around the world, we expect that we will soon be able to make this claim with confidence.
We truly believe that Repashy Grub Pie is a revolutionary product that will change the way a wide range of insect-eating animals, such as reptiles and amphibians are kept and fed in the future. Repashy Grub Pie can be fed as a slurry, paste, or a gel. It can also be mixed into existing gecko diets, or be used as a Gravy / Topper on dry kibble diets. Not only is it suitable for Reptiles and Amphibians, but also a great diet for Insectivorous Mammals and Fish, which will soon have their own labeled version. The gel base also allows for the introduction of medications when treatment for parasites or other health problems are required.
