Marijuana is legal in my state and my 70 year old father recommends edibles for evening relaxation. In the 1980's marijuana caused me no paranoia. Now, some edibles do. I'd greatly appreciate the name of an edible, sublingual or tincture that works for you without paranoia.

I'm 70, too, and I used to have the same problem back in the old illegal days. I think it's because the strains available then were predominantly sativas. strains. Sativas are known for their energizing effects, a "head high" that can also cause paranoia and anxiety in some people. What might work best for you are high-CBD edibles, preferably from an indica strain. Indicas are known for their relaxing, sedative, effects. CBD (cannabidiol, one of the active ingredients in the cannabis plant) is also known for its calming properties.

On the edibles, I initially was enthused as they hit CA yrs ago but never got into them. Too pricey and who needs the calories. The MJ field is even more wide open here now and I have no desire. Found some nice relaxers that work good for me, including meditation. Some use wine for their relaxer and I've even given the wine up. No booze.

Not all edibles are calorie-laden. I use a drink called Kwik Zzzs which is only 4 calories per dose and Level Pro Tab indica tablets which have no calories at all.

If you ate enough of an edible to cause weight gain ( calories) you’d be pretty stoned! Lol
Get Yourself a low dose edible and just eat a portion and see how you feel. Not enough, eat a little more. Too much, eat less ( next time). Once you regulate the dose that suits you... you’re golden. Nobody is going to be able to answer your question as they have no idea of your tolerance to marijuana.

I don't like to eat anything after 6PM or so.

I was told that edibles would put me to sleep but, not really. I also feel like if you hear a noise in the middle of the night and your stone cold sober... you can be sure it was actually a noise. If you had an edible... it could be an audible hallucination and so taking the edible at night is a bad idea. If I heard a strange noise during the night I could not be sure if it was real or due to the pot.

Everyone reacts differently to marijuana so I would suspect that even if something worked for me it might not for you.

It's cannabis - not "marijuana."

I like Petra Mints.

Edibles are cannabis in any form that can be consumed orally. Some examples are tablets, capsules, tinctures, oral sprays, sublingual strips, mints, gummis, chocolate bars, cookies, brownies, beverages, marshmallows, caramels and malted milk balls. Edibles are ideal for people who can't smoke it or prefer not to. Some other advantages of edibles are that there is no smoke or odor, they can be consumed discreetly (if this is an issue) and the effects are long-lasting, up to six hours. The disadvantage is that, because the THC is processed through the digestive system, it can take at least 45 minutes and up to two hours for the full effect to be felt. For this reason some newbies will think it's not working and take too much, which can create some unpleasant side effects such as pounding heart, disorientation and anxiety.

The only "instructions" you would need with edibles is to be careful and start with a very low dose until you know what your tolerance is. Some of the mints come in dosages as low as 1 mg each, which is ideal for beginners or for microdosing, when you want just enough for a mild effect, but you don't want to feel intoxicated.
