How much weed does it take to overdose?

This is a difficult question to answer as overdose situations are influenced by a number of factors such as individual tolerance levels, age/body size, any concurrent substance use, and the presence of any additional health risks such as cardiovascular disease. It is additionally difficult to ascertain the precise amount of cannabis products having been consumed by those people who present to the ER for marijuana-related overdoses. Though it might not constitute an overdose, some adverse psychological effects—such as paranoia and panic attacks—have been reported in some instances with oral doses of only 20 mg.
