    Ok.. I have a problem with getting stoned, I've been smoking since i was about 15-16, now 19. But i don't really do it that often or like to do it that often because I just hate the paranoia i get, I don't get it so much when smoking hashish, only when smoking some nice skunk or weed. It's like i'll get high, and slightly giggly but then the paranoia will always..always kick in.


    It's really frustrating for me because Iquite enjoythe giggly, relaxed high i can sometimes get, but what puts me off smoking all-together is the paranoia. It's like I just can't relax, all of life's problems seem to come to the front of my thoughts and I can't control what I think.


    Does anyone else have this at all and have any suggestions on how i can prevent it or is marijuana just not the right drug for me? none of my stoner friends seem to have this and it'snot like i'm a newbie user or anything.


    Oh and, I don't seem to get it when I'm drinkingbeforehand or when i'm on E, in fact.. I fucking love weed whilst on E;but I don't wanna only smoke the good stuff when i'm drunk or on E!

    i have the same problem.



    the only things that work are smoking small amounts or being on
    something else beforehand. IE alcohol, benzos, opiates, amphetemines...

    Yea i have to recomend the same as korky8097. I used to get all
    paranoid after a wguke smoking weed daily. Then I just quit for about 1
    month and now everything is back to normal. I get paranoid time to time
    but it's not as bad as before.

    I've always had the problem though, that's the thing.. I've never really been a big smoker but when i do i get this shit, that's probably why i don't smoke as much as i'd like to. It sucks :(

    smoke on your own a bit more. if you can get used feeling comfortable
    with yourself when stoned u shud be able to feel more comfortbale with
    other ppl

    have you always gotten the same kind of weed? Some different
    strains have a more paranoid feel, i know this ak-47 im puffin on has
    been known to be kinda a paranoid high. Does for me every so
    often. I would in this case either take about 5-10mg valium 30
    min before smoking, or if you have been smoking the same stuff try
    somebody elses weed.

    its nothing that you can not get rid of, paranoia from cannabis is
    normally throught lack of movement, i.e, if your sitting still whilst
    getting stoned, your more likely to get paranoiad, because any problems
    in life, all come to the front of your thoughts but you can easily push
    them tot he back again, and sometimes even solve them!



    1. get lively, i.e, put some tunes on, and start talking to your friends about things you enjoy!



    2. remember that your on a drug, try to relax, and enjoy the good things that the drug is trying to give you!



    3. munch out!



    4. roll a joint, take it outside, when you come back in your be fine! [​IMG]

    korky: I've had many different sources of skunk, alwaysfeels the same to me so i don't think that's it..


    Yeah maybe its the fact that all we tend to do is sit around watching TV with a few words here and there, well..for me, looking at the TV and then letting my thoughts take over.


    Although when i think about it i've had timeswhere i've been more 'lively' and i've not noticed the paranoia so much,maybe that's it -i'll just have totest out somethings mentioned - Thanks for the input guys - appreciate it![​IMG]
