IMPORTANT EXTRA INFO IN DESCRIPTION! Can you get stoned from eating Marijuana raw? Today on Lex's World we answer this old question. Here's the facts: you absolutely CAN get high eating Cannabis in its unheated form. Because, even though to turn THCA to THC its most efficient to burn it (called decarboxylation), this process also occurs naturally over time without heat as the bud dries.
Consequently, dry bud often has lots of both THC and THCA on it... you do have to eat a LOT more weed to get high than if you were to smoke it. Especially if its very fresh weed that has not gone through much natural decarboxylation yet.
The strains pictured in today's episode by the way are power kush on the right and OG on the left.
I ate 2 grams once to avoid getting in trouble and I got high as fuck.
