People were less than encouraging when I announced my plan to eat a massive weed sundae on a Facebook Livestream. Some even felt it would be disastrous for VICE’s pro-ice cream agenda.
But naysayers be damned, I had come up with this stupid idea, so I had to go through with it. Besides, I had consumed a 3,000mg dose of THC on the shoot for the first Canadian Cannabis, so what would a few more milligrams do? No one has ever died from the consumption of cannabis, and I knew for a fact that this was not a record-breaking dosage by any means.

Why? I don’t know, and judging by the dosing recommendation document Health Canada has produced, neither do they, really. While making the latest installment of Canadian Cannabis, which focused on edibles, I came up with the idea of constructing a limit-testing sundae featuring a range of the amazing edible products available on the market.
