marijuana lab laboratory testing overdoseMy friend is new to the marijuana world. He had never smoked marijuana before in his life. At the age of 50, due to health problems, he decided to start consuming marijuana because pharmaceuticals weren’t working and were wreaking havoc on his body.

He always asks me questions, and I’m going to try to post answers on TWB in case there are others out there. Also, I’m hoping people post their knowledge in the comments section below so that others can benefit. If you find some good info on marijuana overdose information, feel free to post it below.

The question I’m answering today is ‘how much marijuana does it take for someone to overdose?’ My friend is well aware that no one in recorded history has ever died from a marijuana overdose. But he wants to know if there is any amount of marijuana that someone could overdose from. According to a 1988 United States administrative law hearing:

“7. Drugs used in medicine are routinely given what is called an LD-50. The LD-50 rating indicates at what dosage fifty percent of test animals receiving a drug will die as a result of drug induced toxicity. A number of researchers have attempted to determine marijuana’s LD-50 rating in test animals, without success. Simply stated, researchers have been unable to give animals enough marijuana to induce death.

8. At present it is estimated that marijuana’s LD-50 is around 1:20,000 or 1:40,000. In layman terms this means that in order to induce death a marijuana smoker would have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much marijuana as is contained in one marijuana cigarette. NIDA-supplied marijuana cigarettes weigh approximately .9 grams. A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response.

 

9. In practical terms, marijuana cannot induce a lethal response as a result of drug-related toxicity.”

Even if someone is smoking marijuana concentrates or ‘dabs’ which can be 3-4 times more potent than their flower counterparts, that’s still hundreds of pounds of marijuana dabs within a 15 minute period. A person would pass out before they experienced a lethal dose level of marijuana. Something could harm the person if they fell while passing out resulting in death, but that’s different than the marijuana itself causing death. Some readers are probably wondering why the federal government fights so hard against marijuana research. Maybe it’s because every time they research marijuana they find out how wrong they are…

    IM TOO SURE IT’LL NEVER CAUSE DEATH, BUT WE CAN FEEL HOW’LL BE THE CONDITION AFTER WE DEAD, AND IT’LL BE THE MOST EVER FEELING OTHER THAN ANY WAYS

    • Patrick

      WHAT????? I mean, can we get that mess translated into an actual sentence?

      • Huru

        Pretty sure he meant that, even if marijuana caused one’s death
        incidentally, the feeling of elation that that person would be
        experiencing before dying, thanks to the herb, would have it made
        worthwhile.
        Which is stupid.

    • EphU

      Someone has been indulging *wink*. I gave you a thumbs up because you managed to post regardless of your current condition and you made me laugh a little.

  • Laedeydra

    1,500 pounds = 24,000 ounces, in 15 minutes, that’s crazy!! I dare someone to try it, see how far they can go before they pass out.

    • Bobby Walton

      Wonder can I concentrate that down into one batch of brownies?

      • Pauper

        Well, @ $400 per ounce, 1,500 pounds would cost $9,600,000 … Even if you got a 50% discount for a quantity purchase you’re still looking at a $4,800,000 investment to find out. So if you’ve got 5 Million spare cash lying around ( cause drug dealers DON’T take credit cards ) then got for it !!
        And, while you’re at it, send me the $200,000 left-over cash, would you ????
        He he ;-)

  • CoSchecter

    Since when is death the only deciding factor in an overdose? I would say that any dosage that would end in ill effect would constitute as an overdose. I smoke quite regularly and I would say I have overdosed on marijuana before. I blacked out at a friend’s house once and literally fell to the ground and my head slammed against my friend’s cobblestone sidewalk…I could have died had I hit my head any harder. Believe it or not, this happened from one very strong MMJ joint. I would definitely say marijuana is somewhat harmless, but it is still a drug and should be used with caution. I think that people touting marijuana to be completely harmless are incredibly irresponsible and are making uneducated guesses based upon their own experiences. I live in Colorado where it is legal and I support it being completely legal to anybody over the age of 21, but I’m not running around pretending that it is completely harmless.

    • Pat Cowdin

      Here’s a possible explanation from a report called Marijuana Health Mythology: “One common reaction is to cause decreased blood pressure while standing and increased blood pressure while lying down, causing people to faint if they stand up too quickly.”

    • alias928

      Your own fault for having not been sitting down and enjoying the joint. Marijuana did not make you get on the ground to have hit your head on the sidewalk.
      Blacking out is not an overdose, simply an effect of you having been standing.

      In other words, it is harmless (and not deadly, in small amounts). Not without side effects.

    • Jasonian42

      Sounds to me like malnutrition. Don’t blame the plant because you don’t eat properly, resulting in your blacking out when standing up too quickly.

    • Jetdoc

      It also could’ve been from taking a big bong rip and holding it IN for as long as you can too. That in and of itself deprives the brain of oxygen and would make you pass out as well. There’s A LOT of factors that could’ve played into you passing out that would have NOTHING at all to do with the plant itself. BTW… studies show that you don’t get ANYMORE THC by holding it in for 20 seconds, than you’d get by holding it in for 3 seconds

  • EphU

    In my younger days, a couple friends and I decided to test our limits. We smoked over 4 ounces (we bought 5 but one had loads of stems and seeds) of seriously decent bud in 2 days between the three of us. One of our girlfriends had a couple hits. We used a small 10 inch water bong only. We started Friday night and didn’t smoke anymore when we woke up Sunday afternoon, LOL. This all stemmed from an early D.A.R.E program flier we were given that said weed was lethal…sigh. We decided to prove them wrong. Anyway we were seriously high but found once we peaked we never got any higher. One of my friends seemed to sober up the more he smoked. He was an animal and had the metabolism of an olympic distance runner. I had childhood asthma but it declined in severity during my 20s and resurfaced in my late 50s. I had no problems keeping pace with my friends but did have some congestion later in the week. No idea if it was related. So my one experiment with unmeasured but almost constant smoking didn’t do anything out of the norm except seriously dent my cash reserve and destroy the pantry on the first night. I did have to air out the house and would have killed for some FeBreze to freshen up my furniture. The couch stunk for weeks.
    Edit: We did not smoke all 5 ounces. We had maybe an eighth of shake left and that is probably being generous.
    Take it for what its worth, jack squat except for the memories of one hell of a good weekend.

    (1) Add that the CSA is a flawed document – where are tobacco and alcohol listed in the schedules?

    Alcohol:

    has an LD50 of 0.40% BAC, with approx 100,000 deaths in the US annually

    Tobacco:

    The LD50 of nicotine is 50 mg/kg for rats and 3 mg/kg for mice. 40–60 mg (0.5-1.0 mg/kg) can be a lethal dosage for adult humans. Tobacco/nicotine accounts for nearly 1/2 million US deaths annually.

    Cannabis:

    In summary, enormous doses of Delta 9 THC, All THC and concentrated marijuana extract ingested by mouth were unable to produce death or organ pathology in large mammals but did produce fatalities in smaller rodents due to profound central nervous system depression. The non-fatal consumption of 3000 mg/kg A THC by the dog and monkey would be comparable to a 154-pound human eating approximately 46 pounds (21 kilograms) of 1%-marijuana or 10 pounds of 5% hashish at one time. In addition, 92 mg/kg THC intravenously produced no fatalities in monkeys. These doses would be comparable to a 154-pound human smoking at one time almost three pounds (1.28 kg) of 1%-marijuana or 250,000 times the usual smoked dose and over a million times the minimal effective dose assuming 50% destruction of the THC by smoking.

    Thus, evidence from animal studies and human case reports appears to indicate that the ratio of lethal dose to effective dose is quite large. This ratio is much more favorable than that of many other common psychoactive agents including alcohol and barbiturates (Phillips et al. 1971, Brill et al. 1970).

    I’ve never over dosed on marijuana. I’d have known.

  • brfd532

    Sorry. Double post.

  • brfd532

    If it is the only thing in the world that can’t kill me then why is it illegal? That’s a strange question for sure.

    • Pauper

      It’s illegal because in 1957 Harry Anslinger, who was the first commissioner of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Federal Bureau of Narcotics, saw black jazz musicians smoking it. Being a die-hard racist, he was afraid it would lead to black men having sex with white women. So Anslinger added it as a controlled substance.
      So, basically, all of this crap about MJ being dangerous is the result of one brain-dead racist hillbilly and his unfounded paranoia.
      From the article here: http://www.csdp.org/publicservice/anslinger.htm
      Is the quote:
      “When he was named America’s first drug czar in 1930 Anslinger initially tried to keep the Bureau of Narcotics clear of the marijuana issue because he knew eradication would be impossible. The stuff grows, he said, “like dandelions.” But in the budget squeeze of the Great Depression he decided to create a little excitement by transforming marijuana from a low grade nuisance into an evil “as hellish as heroin.” To add a little spice he played the race card. “Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men,” said Anslinger, “…the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races.” To make sure nobody missed the point he offered this profile of the average toker “… most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.””

      And from the article found here : http://www.drugwarrant.com/articles/why-is-marijuana-illegal/
      Is the quote:
      “Again, racism was part of the charge against marijuana, as newspapers in 1934 editorialized: “Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step on white men’s shadows and look at a white woman twice.”

      So sad that the total ignorance of one useless POS has caused so much misery for so many innocent people throughout so many years.
      Fortunately, that POS died on November 14, 1975 … so he’ll trouble us no longer !! YEA … WOOHOO !!!!

  • chikkie

    to overdose on mary-jane you wud have to smoke 13 pounds in 15 minutes and thats alot

    • Neal Feldman

      1500 pounds, not 13.

    • Jasonian42

      You didn’t read the article, did you?

      • Jetdoc

        Well whatever the amount… I’m WILLING to “Take one for the Team” and volunteer myself (because somebody HAS to) to be a “Test Subject” for a DUPLICATE study to actually get to the TRUTH about the ALLEGED amount it takes in order to Overdose on Cannabis. Afterall, I AM a skeptic and think it takes MUCH more than they’re claiming. But I’m afraid I may DIE before reaching the correct amount, but I’d DIE of Carbon Monoxide poisoning before smoking enough to OD. However with that SAID…I’m willing to sacrifice myself four the sale of RESEARCH! ;-) :-D

  • june

    I’d like to have enough weed to try and od……sounds like a good time

  • Rusty Bucket

    I overdose on cannabis regularly and when I do I raid the refrigerator and go to bed.

  • vishman

    well as per documentary, which i saw a while back, which is a brief history on marijuana, researchers and scientists say, to make marijuana a lethal dose – 15000 joints in 5 mins. But regardless of what figures anyone comes says, all of those figures are humanely impossible to achieve because of the short time frame the amount needs to be consumed in and given the amount that needs to be consumed in that time frame, is just impossible.

  • Devon

    They have been able to kill a monkey trying this exact test however, it was not the marijuana that killed him it was a lack of oxygen issue.
    if I’m not mistaking it was “Can Cannabis Cure Cancer” where I heard this. excellent film.
    happy smoking

    • wowFAD

      Yup, that’s the Heath/Tulane study in which those poor creatures were strapped into miniature gasmasks and inundated with cannabis smoke for five minutes at a time, without oxygen. Brain cells begin to die after about half that time without oxygen. The researchers were asphyxiating the research subjects so they could report on the “dangers” of cannabis. After the study was published, Reagan went on to tout the study as absolute proof that cannabis is dangerous.

  • polyrobics

    I had a quad does of cheeba chews. that was too much for me and it just made me lay down and smile my sleepy time to death.

  • tsuruchi

    Living in California, I have already read about little dogs and children who have died from health complications from eating edibles made with concentrates. Granted, their body size was a considerable factor, and it was not the overdose per se, but the health complications from having such a high dose in a small body, but the end result was death. Concentrates are becoming more common, and we in the weed culture have known marijuana as an ‘impossible to OD’ drug for so long it is understandable that people still treat it that way with edibles, oil, and wax, not being aware that these high doses, particularly for children, can put their health at risk. For adults, the worst you can expect is an allergic reaction, or passing out for a while. Children and dogs on the other hand can get heart attacks or slip into a comma. I love green. And of course, these stories are purely anecdotal, but it is some food for thought.

    • John

      Please provide some evidence to back up your claim that children and animals have died, otherwise your anecdotal claim is worthless. Anecdotal 1.(of an account) not necessarily true or reliable.

      The truth is no one has died as a result of using marijuana in and of itself. Google “child dies after ingesting marijuana” or “dog dies after ingesting marijuana” or any term you can think of and dies after ingesting.

      Over 46,000 people died in this country after ingesting alcohol in 2010 alone, not related to accidents.
      Zero people have EVER died in this country from as a result of consuming marijuana.

    • Klae A. Klevenger

      Dogs are actually allergic to marijuana. There have been multiple papers suggesting that dogs are having negative effects to marijuana smoke and edibles. Small dogs could have died yes. But at the same time I have fed my roommates chiuaua weed for 4 plus years and smoked it out. While it definitely made the dog a stoner and has made it so “drunk” it couldn’t stand it still lived through it. It just stopped eating marijuana for a bit. Children have NOT died. Unless I see an article with enough facts in the lies I will have to say, you have NO clue what you are talking about.

      • wednesday

        Sorry but researchers are actually using cannabis to treat dogs. No animals are allergic to cannabis. No one has ever died from cannabis. It is impossible to die from THC.

        • John

          There is some evidence that dogs can have Allergic Inhalant dermatitis from exposure as evidenced in the article http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2599943 BUT this is from 1989 and Google doesn’t find any other citings.

        • Klae A. Klevenger
          • John

            Sure we are. Link to one “paper” showing a link between dogs and marijuana toxicity. Not anecdotal evidence that you “know” this is occurring and not a newspaper article where it is not apparent that the vet even knows what the heck they are talking about. Chocolate causes an almost identical reaction. Did you read the comments attached to the article you linked to?

        I have a pain in the ass little dog, Pug/Doxy mix, that has the worst habit of scrounging. I put hubby’s x-mas present from a friend a gallon ziplock FULL of HUGE choco chip/mj cookies from a grower. To give an idea of how potent they were a 1x1inch cube knocked me on my ass. We left and came home to an empty bag of cookies and a dog on the recliner that could only whimper. I was up with her and held her all night, I really thought she was going to die of the chocolate, but she didn’t. She was acting like she was on an acid trip and had the spins. She has a really bad habit of finding anything made with chocolate, it is going be the death of her one day. She is 17lbs and the weight of the bag was probably 5 lbs.

  • CannabisCures

    Tsuruchi, your statement implies that children have died due to complications from cannabis ingestion. That statement is absolutely false. As for animals dying due to eating edibles, its probably because those edibles contained chocolate, which as I hope you know is poisonous to many animals as it contains theobromine.

    • Berpestio

    1500 pounds would found out to a street value of 4.5 million. So just to try you’d have to have 5 million laying around. 3000 per pound is what the cops count it for a pound, and that’s about the retail value of one here in Arkansas. I know on Cali you can get a pound for much cheaper though.
    It’s still humanly impossible. Even if you made oil from all that, it would be around 10 pounds of oil. The largest dab ever done was 90 grams and it was in a tent with 20 people inhaling.

        ya and if its sucky like brick mexican bud then the prices should be the same what they were 1.75-2grams for 5 3.5-4grams for 10 and 7-8grams for a 20 sack wish i was in highschool swag or reggie could smoke a blunt for 5 bucks and feel high

  • MS Defier

    Hey there, I have Multiple Sclerosis, and decided to tell the doctors to stick there narcotics, and brain infection treatments up where the sun doesn’t shine. They told me I’d be in a wheel chair in 6 months if I didn’t follow doctors orders. I was told that 5 years ago, and til this day I still walk just fine. I smoke. And that has worked for me.

    My Question: I live on the south east cost of the U.S. Where it is not legal. I’d like a prescription, how does that work, or does it all outside of California? How do I get one?

    Its been working for years, but Jail time and fines is counter productive to “Low stress life style” I need to maintain. What should I do?

    • Ben Henderson

      The prescriptions arn’t legal in SC. In SC it is a schedule IV drug which means it has no accepted medical uses. I know its fucking retarded but thats the law here. I would just stay low key and youll be alright.

      Move here to Washington state…it is legal for medical use and recreational use…

    • Troy Cazares

      move to a state where it is legal

    • Animal

      Oregon probably has the simplest system. We go to the Dr’s and get copies of our chart notes for our qualifying conditions, I think you need at least three to start. You take these chart notes to your marijuana Dr (unless your personal Dr will sign it for you).Then after that only one chart note per year is required to renew. You can have six mature plants of unlimited size, 18 immature clones or seedlings under 12 inches, and 1-1/2 pounds of dried cannabis. You can grow for yourself, or have a grower grow it for you. Washington’s laws need to worked on in my opinion, personally I would not move there from Oregon, we have the best medical program out there I think.

  • 2CaptainLovechild7

    Some good strains of MJ could knock a novice smoker on the ass. MariJuana still has an up coming fight, what about the recreational smoker that wants to smoke quality MJ. I started smoking with my cousin she was many years older, then I smoked with associates, some good strains word of mouth the smoke was Acapulco Gold/Panama Red. I carried this into the AF (was let go) then stopped until I turned 25 years old. I started researching the who, what and how of MJ. I love to smoke a good strain, it haas medicinal effects (some strains have calming effects (couch lock) and some strains (good S’s) make me want to go like the roadrunner. We do not know what to do with legalized MJ.

    I think even if you could manage to smoke 1, 500 pounds in a 15 minute span, the ultimate factor to your demise would most likely be smoke inhalation. I’m no rocket scientist, but I’ve done my fair share of “hot boxing” and it wasn’t the thc that was bothering me…it was the smoke! Also, to the person who commented about passing out, here’s some advice…go to a hospital and get a checkup done to see if you have any history of illnesses that may factor into this “passing out spell” you experienced. I myself have hypoglycemia, so if I don’t eat anything before I start smoking, I too experience these spells. Although, I don’t try to blame my symptoms on a “drug” that has no history or record of anyone ever dying from it. My friends and I have managed to blaze thru a half pound in 1 sitting, and none of us went to the hospital or the morgue!

  • StoneyFaced

    Actually, it is possible to die by a marijuana related death. Every person in this world is allergic to something, many things. I had a friend when I was younger who was allergic to THC and didnt know for a while, & he would smoke with whoever was smoking around him & each time he woud end up dizzy & nauseated and start breaking out and getting shorto of breath. He didnt die, but he stopped smoking completely once his doctor told him that he was allergic and he was lucky the reaction didnt get worse. Like any allergic reaction, they vary in severity from person to person. What made him dizzy & short of breath could close someonesthroat up & ashipxiate a person. Im not knocking weed, hell i love it, its great for my anxiety and sleep problems as well as mood stabilizer. & no marijuana will not kill you ever if your are healthy & have no allergies to anything like that your all set. No worries anywhere when it comes to God’s Green Pastures ;)

    • Kyle

      That’s due to an allergic reaction though, researchers are trying to determine how much THC will kill a healthy average human being. Without any variables like allergic reactions.

  • victorforsythe

    Cannabis is a great cure for stupidity. Marijuana was legal 100 years ago and sold in Drug stores under the name CANNABIS. Suddenly its illegal because they invent a new name for it. Marijuana is a slang term like POT or Reefer. It is not SPANISH! Why not use the English word instead of showing what most Americans really are; ignorant idiots.
