I had a RNY gastric bypass 20 years ago. I tried edibles to stop drinking wine because of high calorie content. The problem is they take 4 hours to kick in. Does anyone else have this problem? If so have you figured out a way for edibles to work faster?

OK, I bet I'm going to get super judged for this but... is there a reason you can't smoke a j?

Not really a way to speed up that process unless you have more of a coconut oil type edible that gets ingested faster. Edibles can be tricky. I have no issues hitting the peace pipe either but im not suggesting anything. Thats just me. But i also started the day i came home .

I've got some Gummy edibles from before my RNY that I'm kinda afraid to try. There's no nutritional info on the package so I don't know how much sugar is in them. And I had gotten used to how much to eat and the timeline of when they would kick in before surgery and that's up in the air now. And I don't even wanna think about dumping while high--talk about a buzzkill!

Try a tincture. It’s a small amount .25 ml delivered sublingual (under the tongue). Takes about an hour to kick in.

I’ve had the bypass 17 yrs ago. I was 275lbs and in my late 50’s. I am now 75 and am 163 lbs. when I had the surgery, my doc took out my gall bladder also. I’ve tried edibles and nothing works!

I’ve made Cana butter and cana oil from the recipes in books. I made brownies with good weed.
made cakes that floored my friends, me, nothing! After way too much waste of good flower, I give up. I think I just can’t absorb the good stuff🤔

Just a tip: don’t over do the Calcium and d3 Vitamins. Too much over the yrs messed with my kidneys and I had and have terrible stones. My kidneys aren’t 100% since.

I love smoking and I do love the smell too. Problem is, that at 75 yrs old, I’d like to save my lungs! last yr I had tiny nodes on my lungs but they were very small and didn’t get larger So if I try not to smoke too much. I have an addictive personality as most over weight people and tend to smoke every night. Besides the cost, the cough messes with my allergies. Haven’t tried the 𝐆𝐮𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐞𝐬 since it’s illegal in Florida but I have a medical card.

I never liked edibles, I preferred to inhale and exhale. I also liked the sensation of smoking, oral fixation and etc., it comes down to preference. Edibles didn't allow me enough control of my high and it also felt different from the high I obtained from smoking. I have edibles that someone bought me for my birthday last year, I've been giving them away to my friends who do partake in edibles.

If it takes 4 hours for you to experience the high from edibles, indulge before you are actually ready to feel the effects. It may take some planning, but you can make it work for you.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
