    Don't mean to annoy anyone, but I must be pretty rare... almost everyone I know likes it. My brother smokes it about 5 times/day.

    Last time I tried it was about a week ago, which was the first time in around 10 years. Made me feel like Beavis/Butthead, my thought process just turned stupid. Anyone else get this? Most people probably like that effect, but I like keeping a clear head (which is why I rarely drink alcohol either).

    Just curious if I'm one of the few & far between who just don't care for the high. Doesn't give me panic attacks or anything, just makes me feel like my IQ has dropped about 60 points.Edited by: Nicaine

    definatly makes me feel like my iq dropped 60 points... its pretty much
    why i've stoped doing it recently. (gave my stuff away actually)



    i'm leavin it for ocasions when friends want to go all out with it. i
    could only remember 2 good experiences with it...1 was with a group of
    10 ppl in the middle of a construction site at night lookin at stuff
    and laughing our asses off and the other was with my girlfriend not too
    long ago when we had some crazy sexual cravings (lots of nice rubbin
    went on)...other than that it's been "okay"...could care less if i
    didnt get high.



    that last few weeks i did it, i made myself stop because i wasted a lot of time even when i smoked a little bit.

    Yea ditto I get a lot of bad effects...especially lately. Feels like my head is in a haze and I can't think worth anything. This doesn't happen everytime though, but more so lately. I also get amotivational syndrome a lot, it sucks! Just the thought of doing something or putting in effort makes me cramp up lol [​IMG] . The good thing about mj is that all the symptoms clear out pretty quickly after you stop for a couple days...which I think I might need to do

    and you cant forget that everyone reacts to it differently. even though
    sure tons of people may like it, i know someone that no matter how
    little she smokes she gets a bad headach.



    so maybe some feel better off of it than others. but generally yea it is known to "dumb" you

    I only get dopey stoned after an intense smoke-up. I just love the taste, and the increased heart-rate, the increased ability to appreciate sound and colour. Don't worry about how you think practically when high. Enjoy the aesthetics of it.

    I rarely drink alcohol or smoke/vaporize
    mj. </span>When I do, I only do so in small
    quantities. </span>If somebody passes a joint I
    will take a couple of puffs the first couple of times it comes around and
    generally thereafter pass it on without puffing. </span>A small amount is kind of fun occasionally,
    but more isn’t particularly interesting for me.</span>

    I'm the complete opposite. I never, ever turn down a smoke.

    Haha, I get that whenever I start smoking too early in the morning, then by mid day I feel straight up retarded. Edited by: sg43

    I love smoking mj. Its only the effects its the taste too. I love the
    taste and it relaxes me so much. I'm always stressed out with school
    and everything and then when I smoke a bowl I jsut "chill". I
    understand what you are saying, it does make you feel stupid at points
    but thats why I never do anything that requires thinking while high. I
    just watch movies and relax.

    Most of the bud on the street is mostly indica or indica dominant. SWIM always trys to get his hands on anything known to be a sativa- sativas are the better species by leaps and bounds IMO (and most other's opinions too).

    You can think more clearly and actually do stuff while high without really feeling lethargic and you don't feel like a zombie. Good luck finding a 100% sativa on the street though, it is much more common and cost effective for growers to grow indicas.

    Yep, I agree. Most street pot makes you feel stupid. The higher grade stuff is so much better because it doesn't numb your mind.

    I kinda get like that and it really starts to bother me when i cant concentrate on things and when my memory goes all shitty. But i think the best thing to do is just relax and enjoy the feeling. Just remember that in a few hours time you'll be back to your usualy self.


    I don't understand how people can just smoke and carry on with they're everyday lives! thats just odd!
