A bit ago I spoke with my grower (Alex’s grower, technically — but I am the caregiver so that has to count for something), and he mentioned eating hash usually requires a pretty large amount for most people he’s dealt with.
On Saturday, we tried out a whole lot more hash than usual. A typical amount is about a tenth of a gram. I gave Alex .15g, waited 30 minutes, and gave another .15g, for a total of three times our normal dose. He had arrived at 10am pretty upset, but had calmed down a great deal by 11 or 11:30. He went from needing direct, constant protection to playing a bit on his own.
Unfortunately, by 1 he was back to a really bad mood, which contradicts what I’ve heard about ingested hash. I thought it was supposed to last for several hours, but whatever we saw was at most two hours. Given this fact, it may be that it wasn’t the hash that helped out, but simply coincidence.
Whatever happened, we got a four-hour visit which hasn’t happened in a long time. At least two of those hours were good, and only about 30-45 minutes could be described as really bad. Next time I may shoot for 0.5g total and see what happens. If he falls asleep (worst-case scenario for a cannabis overdose), then hey, I can take a nap with my kid for the first time in over two years.
