Actor, comedian, and well known cannabis connoisseur Seth Rogen divulged a rather surprising fact about himself and Snoop Dogg during a recent appearance on Howard Stern’s show on Sirius XM Radio. Apparently neither him or Snoop Dogg mess around with edibles. Surprising, right? Apparently the comedian was talking to the world famous rapper about, what else, weed. When Rogen asked Snoop if he liked doing edibles, he said, “I don’t fuck with edibles because they ain’t got no off button.”
Edibles aren’t Rogen’s favorite method of consumption either. “I’ve done a lot of drugs,” he said on Stern’s show. “The most negative drug experiences I’ve ever had in my life are from weed edibles. No amount of MDMA I’ve done makes me feel as fucked up as having one bite too much of a weed brownie.” He goes on to talk about taking edibles before going to see Rogue One with his wife and in-laws, and how they made the movie way too intense for him. The whole exchange is pretty damn hilarious and well worth checking out.
First off, I love edibles. Those delicious gummies will always be my weakness. Rogen and Snoop Dogg have a point though. There is no off button when it comes to edibles. It’s far too easy to overdo it. I’ve only had one negative experience with edibles, but this one experience was the only negative experience I’ve ever had when taking cannabis.
A lot of people I know are reluctant to smoke weed because of one bad experience with taking too many. It’s always because of taking too many too. We’re better at knowing our dosages now, of course, but we’re not all the way there yet. This is why you have to take the recommended dosage. Edibles hit you way harder than smoking and it is impossible to know exactly how they will affect you. The possibility of a bad trip is no reason to avoid them entirely, especially if you’ve never tried them. Just because Snoop Dogg doesn’t like them, doesn’t mean you won’t.
