Edibles for when using float tanks?

Discussion in 'Weed Edibles' started by iherbcoupon, Apr 29, 2016.


Float tank during which type of weed is best?

  1. Sativa

    0 vote(s)
  2. Hybrid

  3. Indica

  1. Hey everybody. So this is more than just one subject, but yeah basically I am needing some opinions on this stuff. I haven't been baked since christmas, although I used to get baked fairly regularly before that. This summer however, I'm going to Amsterdam for 4 days and will have the opportunity to use a float tank (isolation tank, sensory deprivation tank, whatever you wanna call it). I will also be getting baked every single day, except for the last one when I fly home. And I will only be using edibles, as smoking has fucked up my ear canals. The first day I'll be eating a sativa, the next day a hybrid, and the last day an indica. I've only had proper quality weed a few times so I'm pretty excited about this, especially considering my extensive break. This will also be my very first time using a float tank. I meditate every single day but I imagine the tank to be a totally different experience.
    My questions are:

    a) What type of strain is best for using a float tank? i.e. which day of my trip (since I'll be doing sativa -> hybrid -> indica)

    b) Would consuming ~0.55g of super high quality weed in one sitting be too much after a 6 month break? Of course it depends on my body, but lets say I'm somewhat of a lightweight when it comes to drugs, and weighing in at 150 pounds.

    c) Any recommendations for amsterdam weed? :D

    Thanks for all of your input.
  2. Wait your title says edibles. Do you mean 550mg edibles? If so, that's way way way too much especially after a break. I'd imagine a floatation tank might be better without for the first time but if you already meditate it sounds like a great experience
  3. Couple of things

    1. The best strain for a flotation tank depends on the time of day and what else you got planned. If it's 2 in the afternoon, and you're looking to enjoy the rest of your day, then don't go into the tank on an Indica. You'll be ready for bed. Tanks are better for thought and reflection anyway, so Sativa all the way. The only way I'd Indica it in a tank is if I'm just dead tired, it's the end of the day, and I'm just looking to relax.

    2. Careful about edibles in Amsterdam. I've enjoyed the herb bought in coffee shops very much, but the edibles let me down. Even in shops that served good actual MJ, the edibles were meh. Considering it's Amsterdam, I'm obviously sure there are great edibles in town. I just haven't found them in maybe 5 coffee shops. Do your research on what hits the spot.

    3. I'm assuming you are not going into a tank @ a friend's place, so I'm thinking you're doing this in a public place. Let's all remember the potency of proper edibles and just how fun a panic attack in public can be. Make sure you observe set and setting. A tourist chick who never smoked before had a major panic attack in a shop in front of us and that was off of a joint.

    Otherwise, good luck. Great city!

  4. Funny you should mention this. Back in the 80's when I was in college I used to use a floatation tank. I decided one day to smoke before getting in. Got in the tank really high and promptly had a panic attack. I opened the hatch to get some air and gradually calmed down. I thought it would be awesome stoned, but it wasn't pleasant at all. I'm sure you won't have the same experience. I'd go with an indica the first time. Good luck and enjoy!
  5. joe rogan uses edbiles with float tanks ask him, make the most of it and get ripped high as ever.
  6. Thanks for the input guys. Yes I will be consuming 0.55g or 550mg of weed in the form of an edible. This may or may not be too much. I won't be buying the edible, but rather buy the greens and create the edible myself in the hotel room. This ensures that I am getting the exact and high quality dose that I'm looking for :) I'm thinking I'll do it on the hybrid, as some of you suggest sativa and others indica, but it's still a while until summer so we'll see.
  7. .wow thats some crazy bud if .55g is 550 mg. id think itd be more 50 mg and thats just using 10% thc but even at 30% thc you wouldnt get 550mg!?!
  8. That's just the weight equivalent, not the amount of cannabinoids. That's going to be closer to the 50mg of THC which is still high for an edible. .55g is over half a gram or 550mg. When using decimals milligrams are 3 places on the right of the point, making .55g into 550mg. of which only a small amount are cannabinoids. I used to get my decimals confused all the time at first when figuring doses. :)
