three of my good friends went to amsterdam a few weeks ago…and did t he whole coffee shop thing. but they had a bad time of it! I guess you’re not supposed to eat too much space cake AND smoke a bit of it, too. They split 2 space cakes between three of them and puffed like once or twice. The next hour they were convulsing and dizzy and their hearts were pounding like crazy. so they asked the guy that sold it to t hem what was in it, and he said just cannibis. he then gave them some sugar water. But one of them still threw up later and they all still felt horrible. So hint to all those planning on visiting hte coffee shops: don’t eat too much of it (it’s stronger that way) and don’t mix and match methods of ingesting it.

Had the same thing happen when I was a noob… the thing is, when you consume it orally, it takes a long time to kick in, so a big mistake ppl make is consuming more & more since they’re not feeling anything… an hour later it hits you all at once.

If you take too much of it, it’ll definitely make you sick and/or paranoid. I’ve never eaten any space cakes, just smoked a bowl or a joint with some people. You really aren’t supposed to take more than 4-5 puffs to get high; more than that and you are risking some crazy shiz.
