Your help is greatly appreciated.
I began my gardening career to supply my extract research with consistent material. This began in 2001 and now is my day job.
I have many episodes of many things spanning many years and kept track of ones with more severe effects. The six months spent with a couple ounces of 95% pure THC trying to find overdose levels and symptoms had a few interesting times.
Most notable were convulsions when a cumulative dosage over a fifteen minute span exceeded 300 mg. This was difficult to achieve because single doses of 100 mg left the user unable to recall his physical position or whereabouts.
The body's temperature seemed to go off track and the convulsions were thought to be caused by chills due to beginning with severe shivering.
On the fourth event we had a thermometer handy and at the peak of convulsions the body temperature was 104 F.
The shivering was feeding a runaway heating and the convulsions were from fever.
The brain was convinced the body was cold, even as the temperature climbed the brain wanted more heat. This is a direct result of large quantities of THC, no entourage chemicals were present.
The exact overdose level will vary with each person's genetics, but this effect and its possible influence on abdominal activities is very real with some subjects.
