Lol it's pathetic that people would make fun of someone who just had a seizure. Anything to get your And-1's I guess. Regardless of the reasons why he had the seizure, it's still a serious medical emergency. Some of you need to grow up.

I was hoping that we were talking gummy vitamins at least, haha. Nope. Odom is all, "What a wuss..." Odom could do mass quantities of gummy bears AND drugs at the same time. He survived enough of both to kill a grizzly bear in a Nevada bordello once.

more likely thc infused to cause an overdose...than just medical types.
a recognizable nba player is not going to get hassled boarding a private charter even at denver international although they prob fly out of rocky metro which is even more likely to sell him the magic gummy's , i mean is legitimately possible he either knew what they were but not how strong they were, or realized what they were after in flight and ate them all to avoid the embarrassment and potential lawyer fees if caught in a non legal layover or something.
you can easily od on thc infused candy esp if you never eat them.

Don't think his first time trying them would be on a team plane. CBD / THC overdose usually don't cause seizures. Sound like an insulin response issue.

No disrespect, but I've never heard of anyone "overdosing" on anything THC related. You have to be terribly fragile. I actually wish I could overdose on THC, lol.

I can relate. A Sour Patch Kid overdose nearly ended me 10 years ago. I still fight the urge but weekly meetings help keep my head straight.

the amount of thc in gummies is not significant but the problem is they take forever to start working and it is very easy to take way too many doses if you don't know that and then get hit like by mack truck a couple hours later. It easily explains what happened here.
btw even people who smoke heavy amounts can OD from too many gummies for the same reasons...tolerance has nothing to do with it compared to the way it is delivered

They take anywhere between 45mins to a couple of hours to kick in, depending on your metabolism, body fat, size, etc. If he room like 300mg(lots of brownies are 300mg) and it kicked in at once you could feel a tad sick. Further sometimes weed induces anxiety.

All that should happen in that scenario is you get really high. I don’t think it’s possible to actually OD like it’s heroin or something from weed.

A panic attack or anxiety depending on the person sure but a actual deadly overdose might put you in the history books

This...
they were probably Green Hornets or some other buddyboybrand "Mile High" infused types . my guess is given the prevalance of said products in Colorado he may have even git them at the airport realized what they were in the air and didnt want to get busted so he ate them all.


FWIW they don't sell THC anything in the airport as far as I know.

I have a hard time believing that THC stuff can cause seizures as well.

Not easy to OD when smokin only esp the poor quality of most street gonj,you would have to bong-athon 6 hours straight to reach that level of downer that you can get from 20 gummies with pure THC that are transfered to your system through digestion all at once 2-3 hours after you dropped them and impact the organs much differently. It actually effect your body before it makes you high upstairs unless you let them dissolve in your mouth instead of chewing up and down the hatch...add that in a plane at those elevations esp. if he didn't know what they were at all, would easily make him freak out and think he was tripping / drugged= pass out/seizure etc.
