    Default q for weed smokers

    my experience with weed is solid but not expert. over the last several years i have only done it on average like once a year. a couple weeks ago i did some strong shit with some strong pulls. the high was very different than normal. i liked it but hated it. made me super open and super aggressive in my openness. given that im already a little like that, it was funky. it also changed my perceptions in some ways i dont understand, which brings me to my question:

    is it normal to get fucking depressed after the high? i mean, like, as i was coming down, i began getting disgusted with some shit regarding my surroundings and for the entire next 24 hours i was pretty down in the dumps. i asked my brother (whom i got it from and who smokes regularly) if the depression is normal and how he deals with it, and he said yes it's normal and he deals by just acknowledging that it's gonna happen. anyways, i almost dont ever wanna do it again because the depression and the disgust i felt for some things was just too visceral. is this effect normal or strain based or tolerance based or what?

    Weed related depression is not something I have a problem with, or at least if I do it's mild enough for me to live with. Perhaps that's the case with your bro.

    It's hard for me to say if it's normal to be depressed after a high, because you're smoking once a year and I'm smoking once an hour. It's certainly not normal for me, but it is normal for some people I know who used to smoke weed and stopped because it wasn't good for their mental wellbeing. Weed isn't for everyone, it effects people differently. My Stepdad also has a problem with it, he doesn't get depressed but his mind is way more active than mine when he's stoned, like hallucinations and paranoia. So he doesn't smoke it anymore.

    It's possibly a strong strain you're smoking, perhaps high in THC and low in CBD. If you smoke high CBD low THC weed, you're more likely to enjoy it because CBD is the medical side of things (relaxes) while THC is the headfuck side of things (actually being high).

    It's also possible that you have other shit going on in your life and smoking weed triggered a mental state that you were uncomfortable with. Stress relief is one big reason why weed is a big part of my life, but if the problem is too big, it can make it worse, like it's all you think about.

    The only advice I can really give is if you don't like how weed makes you feel, leave it alone.

    You sound like the type of person who tries too hard to have fun on drugs. Like you're paying too much attention to every little change, and only noticing things because you're actively looking for something to notice.

    I'm not sure what "aggressive openness" is all about. But there are people who just can't shut the fuck up when they're high. You might be one of them. Most 'inexperienced' smokers are like this. It's not unusual

    I think if you smoked a little more often, you would find yourself less amazed by the changes your body is experiencing. That will allow you to simply enjoy them more. Once you've done it a few times, you realize that nothing you say when you're stoned is as profound as you think, so most people tend to stop putting in the effort. Stop actively thinking and processing outputs from your brain. Rather, go into full receptor-mode and just accept stimuli as it comes.

    Other people go quiet. It helps to have a chatty stoner sometimes, someome to stimulate conversation.

    I don't have any ill effects after an hour or so, but I'm no expert. I just try it again once a year to make sure I still hate it.

    Its good at the end of a night when you've been doing other stuff, bar that not for me. Some strains are much better experiences but I've never tried anything I enjoy more than four pints.

    How much do you need to get high? A gram?

    Nowhere near that. If you don't smoke you'd get high off scraps from a grinder in a cig sized joint.

    My guess is that ong goes through something like a gram a day, give or take a bit.

    Anyone wanna take the under?

    Tough one.

    On one hand, he hasn't been shy about his lack of cash flow. Buying over an ounce a month should be a pretty hefty burden for someone in his position.

    On the other hand, he commonly refers to "smoking spliffs", which I assume is kooky limey talk for "joint". And in my experience, that's probably the least efficient way to smoke the stuff. Your level of high-ness usually maxes out before it's done burning.

    So I guess it depends on the method.

    If he's taking 1-2 hits every hour from a clean glass bowl, then I'll probably bet the under. If he really is rolling a dozen joints every single day puffing away, then he's certainly well over.

    For comparison purposes, I go through about a gram a day.

    It's about an ounce a month, which is roughly a gram a day. A gram is maybe five or six spliffs.

    Yep. I spend more on weed than I do food.

    as a non smoker bowls are a terrible way to smoke weed. Roll a spliff pass it round with friends taking a couple of drags & getting comfortable with what you have is the way forward. Bowls are like shots of unknown strength spirits who haven't drunk before to non-smokers.

    It's really shit though it's basically just a numbing agent.

    For a hefty smoker, it's miles less otherwise. The same amount is plenty for like 4-6 people who don't smoke regularly.

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

    If that's the case, you're probably smoking more paper than you are weed. Your "spliffs" must be the size of toothpicks

    haha well I dunno how you're getting through a gram a day making more generous spliffs than I make.

    I'm smoking more tobacco than I am weed. It's probably a ratio around 75:25. I'd like them to be stronger but I'd smoke more weed and would be even more useless than I already am.

    I think smoking it straight is more of us thing than over here. It's a terrible way of doing it because it burns like shit. If you don't like tobacco then you pipe it or edibles.

    If you get the opportunity, get into therapy. I'm ultra-fortunate that mine is only 20 bucks a pop per visit as a co-pay once my deductible is up and just having a sounding board literally walk through your mental state, life history, and daily interactions is fucking awesome.

    I wonder if therapy is any good for somebody who doesn't talk about certain things.

    Isn't therapy just for pussies who are too self-obsessed?

    Wuf, what you're describing sounds like what I sometimes feel after intense social interactions. I like being alone, but I think this causes my social interaction tank to back up-- then, sometimes, at a party or whatever, I'll be all over the place. By the end of the night, I'll feel exhausted, probably regret some of the interactions I had (probably, objectively, there wasn't anything much to regret), and the next day I might feel really spent. This has happened while drinking, sober, high, etc.

    So, maybe it was the weed, or maybe it's just correlation, or maybe the weed made you more open in that setting but would have been chill had you been on your own. But if the "hangover" was that bad, weed isn't all that great and it may be worth just practicing avoidance.
