6 Nigerians Narrate Their Wildest Experiences When They Ate Weed Edibles

August 12, 2020

Weed edibles are food products infused with cannabis. Most people have tried edibles, often with wild and hilarious consequences.

I really wanted to hear people talk about their wildest experiences with eating weed edibles so I put out an open call on Twitter. The stories I heard ranged from hilarious to downright insane. Read on to catch the best bits.

Mo, 21

The first time I ate weed, I died and came back to life. 

I didn’t know it was edibles. I just entered my friend’s room and saw moist cupcakes. I took a whole one and ate it. I was vomiting non-stop for like 30 minutes. After I finished vomiting, I started having seizures. Serious ones. I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

My friends forced me to drink like 10 packs of Hollandia milk just so I could calm down. It wasn’t funny at all.

It was at my sister’s birthday party in 2017. I just came in and saw the cakes looking pretty. I had already eaten two before they told me that it was edibles. I nearly ran mad and I was paranoid because I had work the next morning.

That’s how I started hallucinating and couldn’t sleep a wink the whole night. Till today, I don’t know how I went to work the next day and functioned. All I remembered was that I was laughing a lot and was really nice to customers.

I was visiting a friend when I suddenly became hungry. To be fair, he told me the cupcakes in the fridge had weed in it but I ate two anyway.  I didn’t feel different so I thought everything was fine.

My friend was walking me to the gate when I just started dancing out of the blue. For context, I never dance in public, but that night, I danced for 5 straight minutes while I was waiting for my shawarma to be ready. Tasted like the best thing I’d ever eaten, thanks to the weed, so I was dancing and giggling all the while.

My Uber arrived to take me home. I was struggling to stay awake so that the Uber driver wouldn’t do anything funny. After a 20-minute journey that seemed like forever, I got home that night and slept from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. After that time, I’ve said  “never again” to weed.

Niran, 21

It was the first time I ate edibles. I had a brownie and 30 minutes later, I felt hungry. I didn’t know it was munchies, so I ate more of the brownies. I even thought it wasn’t effective, so I went to lie down to watch a movie.

That’s how I slept on the 31st of March and woke up on the 2nd of April.  I didn’t realise I had slept for two whole days until I entered Twitter and started seeing tweets about April Fool’s day. 

Amanda, 20

So it was at a friend’s party. I took a large chunk of the brownies because I really like brownies. It was my first time so I didn’t know what to expect. Next thing, I started losing the drinking game we were playing and drinking more booze. I was piss drunk and high. I just started crying and I couldn’t talk.

That’s how I went to the bathroom to pee and started begging somebody to tell me if everything was real or if I was dreaming so that I wouldn’t pee myself. When I wanted to sleep, I climbed my friend’s back, saying I could only sleep at a 90° angle and not at 180°. Till today, I don’t know what that means. 

Temisan, 25

It was in 100 level. I had never smoked or eaten weed before. So I took about 100 naira worth of weed (and by weed I mean actual local igbo) and poured the whole thing inside Indomie; about 8 joints’ worth. I thought “nothing dey happen” until I passed out.

I woke up in the middle of the night. I stood up to get water because my mouth was desert-dry and the floor literally didn’t exist. It was like my neck didn’t exist and my head was just hanging there. I passed out again and didn’t wake up for another two days. Eating weed is an extreme sport.
