The first time I smoked bud was probably around three years ago, and all my life, anytime I smoke it it makes me feel pretty bad. I feel all OCD all over my body and generally just uncomfortable.

I've always wondered what people feel like who love smoking bud so much. It's many people's drug of choice and I just can't understand it, although I'd love to be able to enjoy it like so many other people do.

Once you get a tolerance it feels like a completely different drug. In college when I smoked in my pretolerance days, I used to have very weird reactions to pot, I would flip out and act crazy and get very weird and real effects like pixelated vision, echoing audio, and it was fun being f'ed up but it didn't feel "good". In college I just drank all the time and thought pot was stupid, and genuinely didn't really enjoy it much. (oh how things change when you get older and less willing to deal w/ liquor hangovers!)

However, once I got a tolerance, everything changed and I got all the normal effects, and it relaxed me instead of making me flip out like it did. Once I got a tolerance it felt awesome! Alcohol is fun because it's fun and opens you up, never made my body feel "good" though if that makes sense, like it didn't feel like it was doing my body a favor.

Pot on the other hand feels awesome and great!

It gives a different feel about 100% of the time for me, probably because of the differing levels of cannabinoids and dosages smoked each time, set and setting, etc. JWH-250 felt pretty much exactly the same to me every time I smoked it, though (minus the intensity based on dose)...

Sometimes weed does indeed make me feel bad. In fact, for a while, I would not smoke without a benzo or an opiate or the like on hand to synergize with the marijuana. Marijuana is my first love when it comes to drugs and certainly an all time favorite. It is a variable experience though... You never know quite what you're going to get.

The reason I smoke (vape) marijuana though really isn't to feel wonderful. It is to feel a bit different, sure, a bit good, sure, but mainly just altered and hopefully giggly and not anxious. I typically exercise nowadays when I smoke (vape) because i have found it can really let me get more and more into it...

...So to answer your question, there are lots of reasons. Pleasure, mind-exploration, exercise, pain relief, and I'm sure many more (anti-cancer, etc) are soon to come in some form or another.

Edit- As the above poster mentioned, the effects also greatly differ as you smoke more and more regularly...

I agree that pot feels good when your using daily, but there's something about taking tolerance breaks that keeps pot interesting for me. To answer your question there are many people that just don't find pot euphoric and enjoyable, they get all anxious and have panic attacks so your not alone. For me pot has such a unique euphoria that I haven't got from anything else, it's like I see everything so differently but it's not so intense(depending on tolerance) which makes it so enjoyable.

I get a feeling of well being for a week then i get a feeling of being broke the next. I love weed. Good medicine. Treats most nasty's, even cancer and schitzophrenia. (experience).
Not hard to stop. No sweats and shit. But because of the dopamine it gets to damn hard to cope with out weed.
(yes i'm crazy). It stops panic attacks for me, and lets me eat. (i used to weigh less than 50kg) Now i'm climbing to 60kg!!!! YEY. And today is day 3 or 4 no weed. Back on in 2 days. And do i feel bad...nah. If it was H i'd be at the MMT clinic getting bupe. Still, we must do all we can to rid the world of this killer narcotic x)

As someone who smoked daily for years (now cut back to a weekly smoker), I'd say it just relaxes me. It takes the edge off, while making the day more enjoyable for me. I take the time I'm high to sort out my thoughts but also to enjoy the day and whatever I'm doing.

The other reason a lot of people smoke is there are not many recreational drugs out there that you can use everyday without severely affecting your life. Pot certainly can (it's def starting to affect mine!) but not to the extent that any other "feel good" drugs may

i used to smoke bud daily, and i used to love it too. it would put me at ease and just make doing everyday things more enjoyable. but i've hit that point where i'm sure many potheads are familiar with; the anxiety. i get major anxiety and depression everytime i get high now, so its forced me to quit. over the past year, i would smoke occasionally just to see if i would enjoy it again but everytime i do its as if it would tear open some emotional scars and just fuck with my head. so yea no more bud for me

weed changes from a psychadelic stimulant to a depressant once one becomes tolerant to the intitial effects. I refer to those intitial "trips" on weed if you will as the glory days. it can never be gotten back.

Makes me feel pretty relaxed and giggly lol. Sometimes I can get very philosophical and introspective,but I tend to be that way anyway. I guess I'm just more likely to speak my thoughts than let them wade around in my head like they normally do. On occasion it makes me unbearably horny XD

Pretty much just slipping out of life, entering a funny world where everything is fun. Everytime I'm awaiting a long train ride or something I think "oh would this be fun with weed, just sitting and looking out of the window with full amazement"

Relaxation, happy, gigily. Sometimes anxiety, head locked, cant express my thoughts. Blank mind. Its hit or miss. But when its a hit its AMAZING

Smoking it just makes me feel weird, as I found out the other night. My friend used to always give me cookies and brownies and they were great. Relaxing and stopped my thoughts from racing, which rarely happens.

First I would always get super high and it was awesome but a bit overwhelming. I remember when I was 15, the first time I smoked I thought I was in some time loop thing.
Then after smoking daily for a while, it just made me feel relaxed, floaty and chilled. The last month or two I started to feel the anxiousness and had a couple panic attacks. I felt weird when I wasn't smoking and normal when I was. Took it a bit easier, but I just wasn't enjoying the high anymore. Soo, taking a bit of a break now. I feel so much better already, my heads a lot clearer. Just smoking occasionally now, my tolerance is lower and the high is back to being nice and chilled.

Kinda hard to explain. I smoke daily, and when I smoke I feel heavy, somewhat sedated happy, hungry, able to face my problems/the day, and mentally cloudy in a way. It almost feels like my mind is less cloudy when I smoke, but I know it's not true because of how I act while stoned, which is much more cloudy headed then usual.

Weed makes me feel comfortable in a big way and also happy. Things that aren't normally very funny become very funny. When I'm not high anxiety makes it hard for me to deal with daily activities, and that goes away for the most part when I'm even a little bit stoned. Weed used to give me mild anxiety, when I first started smoking alone daily, but that went away after a while.

Mainly weed makes me relaxed, happy, chilled out and generally pleasent feeling.

I used to smoke sativa way more than indica, and it made tiny things hilarious (little, insignificant movements from people on TV, for example)
and it made everything look so cool and futuristic. That was almost two years ago. It was exhilarating, gave me rushes and chills, honestly.

Now I use Indica most of the time. Sativa makes me feel good for a short while but I get fairly paranoid and anxious afterward. Indica makes me feel neutral or bad almost as soon as I smoke it, and I come down within minutes of finishing. Then I get anxiety and paranoia, with more depression than Sativa. But it doesn't last as long. It really sucks now, I don't enjoy it 90% of the time.

for some reason weed tends to affect my personality alot more than others ?
Im not sure if this is true but heres what i get ...

so like after smoking my personality just feels so numb . I turn into the dude in a conversation circle just smiling, doing shit all and zoning out . Im basically no fun whatsoever .

However i then take 2 days off smoking and im back to myself < Aka a energetic , talkative person who is actually motivated.


I know this but for some reason i just keep smoking weed . Weird huh :s

I'm the same way. I'm an extreme extrovert and pot mades me just sit there and not talk. This is why I don't smoke before I go out, I just drink for that.

For me it depends on how I consume my herb, how much, and my surrounding, if I eat some I get an oddly psychidelic high with alot of body load reguardless, if I burn alone it's very relaxing and euphoric, with friends it's really energetic and talkitive, if (as I have recenly discovered) I vape it's INCREDIBLY sedating and a bit trippy depending on how much I vape and it's quite enjoyable (very vivid dreams), I want to vape with a few friends and see how that is though. I will say that if the mood is not right it's not very enjoyable in all cases I get depressed and wanna find somthing else to do, other than toke up. Mood can be a killer but, consumtion can also factor in.

It really just depends on how much I smoke..
If its one or two tokes, I feel energized but at the same time relaxed.
If I finish a whole bowl on my own I just feel boring as shit.

Disoriented. Not quite in 'reality'. Sort of like in a dream but my thoughts are kinda 'loud' and my external environment kinda takes a 'back seat'.

Yeah I don't understand how it makes people feel 'good'. It's not usually 'bad' either it's just too surreal to praise it as some sort of 'happy drug' like mdma.

Lord
31-01-2011, 21:17
I agree, it's a bit weird and surreal, and while a whole lot of euphoria can come from certain strains, rarely does it come alone, without anxiety and whatnot, unlike some drugs (for an hour, anyway).

Full on crazy madness when we all started smoking (we were 12) giggling munchies slight trips but always ace, we couldnt get enough!

As years gone by (14-15 years!) it just helps to get through life, it can take the boringness out of everyday mundane jobs that we all have to got through, it almost instantly relieves stress and can give you the ability to reflect on disagreements (for example) and make well balanced decisions. and it smells and tastes like nothing else in the world =)

downsides i find it hard to quit.

i somewhat agree bloke, but only in certain public situations. its always cool if im smoking on my own or with friends i trust. I have definately missed a fair few oppurtunitys with women through being high. lol

sounds like you are smoking wayyyyyyy too much! Just take like a puff instead of an entire bowl, weed nowadays is too strong.

Yep that's pretty much it for me as well. Although when people ask me about this I always say it's like a "different kind of normal." When you smoke daily it's exactly that, normal but with a different head space and a different way of perceiving the world around you.

Weed makes me feel slightly different every time I smoke but generally right after I smoke I feel really content because I know im about to be blasted, then happy as I get that 'rush' feeling (these days only lasts for like 5-10 minutes). Then I start spacing out. I don't really know how to describe it, but when I'm high I don't think. It's like someone turned my brain off. Any intelligent thought process is gone, it takes a lot of effort to think of even the simplest things.

And almost every time I smoke I get major anxiety. I try to forget about it and zone out and forget my problems but a lot of times when i'm high I start thinking of my problems more and they seem way worse and I get this hopeless feeling like i'm trapped and worthless, it's a terrible feeling. This is usually worst the first couple times I smoke during the day. Haha I really don't even know why I smoke so much any more (i guess it's because i'm addicted). I get a 'good' feeling for maybe 10 minutes and then major anxiety and depression for the next 4 hours.

I get some good feelings too, especially when I eat food. But a lot of times, I just get bad feelings. I think to myself, great, you're high again. It's like the novelty of being high has worn off ive smoked so much, sometimes I feel surprizingly sober or I forget I'm high. I also get extremely anti social (depends on how high i am but most of the time i'm too high to interact with others). All I feel like doing is sitting in my room by myself and listening to music and lurking the internet. If someone comes into my room, (BIGGEST pet peeve, the door is closed for a reason..) I can never talk to them, its really awkward. I always try to come up with something to say and just can't think. I can usually only manage 1 or 2 word sentences and feel the desperate need for be alone again, even though I get depressed a lot when i'm high because i'm always alone.

I also get paranoid as FUCK. It scares me sometimes. I start thinking up these elaborate situations that would seem ridiculous if I was sober and get way too into them and start believing all these crazy thoughts and start feeling really bad. My self esteem is just blown away when I smoke, I start feeling so bad about me smoking weed and my life. For example, I see some stupid thing on facebook and over analyze it because i'm high and always jump to the worst conclusion. Maybe i'm just a pessimist but i'm not really like that sober, I know its the weed. I think paranoia is my least favorite side effect of smoking weed, it interferes so much with my dailey life.

Sorry about such a long post, I could go on way longer about how weed makes me feel, it's something I'm pretty interested in and never really thought critically about.

i remember when i first got high...
it was at the beach. smoked some. "GREEN CRACK"
IT was hella fun, but at the same time everything was so psychedelic.
smoked everyday and it js relaxed me more and more every single time, but i stopped for 8 months because of a really horrible experience i had with Ecstasy(quit all drugs in general).
Came back to weed and when i got high after 8 months, i thought i was gonna pass out and die from an intense panic attack, regretted at the moment but decide to smoke again the next day.
surprisingly my tolerance got back up out of no where, and weed was a good relaxing drug again. i love that relaxing feeling.
but honestly, i prefer so many other drugs than weed.
the euphoria from weed is just not the same as others.
its been 3 months since ive been sober and im scared to smoke again... lol

It makes me more relaxed, and takes my stress and worries away. It really helps with my anxiety and depression by calming me down. I generally smoke every day and it helps to slow my mind down so that I can actually deal with my problems. I'm usually happy and content when I'm smoking weed.

Well, I've more or less stopped smoking.

But when I did smoke....

Right away, I would feel a change to some more creative thoughts. A little looser, thinking in different directions. But sometimes if it was strong, I'd get some pretty stressed out and negative thoughts after. Feelings of pressure to do with work or personal things. After a while I knew it was the drug, and not really me. But when you are often smoking it gets hard to tell the difference.

The cumulative affect of smoking was negative for me. It took me a long time to figure out that I would need to be straight for quite a while to really appreciate the differences in my thinking and motivation compared with when I was a regular smoker. Now that I no longer smoke, I"m better able to do a lot of things more effectively.

I miss being high, but not very much at all. The feeling of being out of synch with the rest of the world was really worrying me. It got hard to see the difference between the stoned me and the real me. the feeling of being high while I was high was no longer worth the feeling of being out of it even when I was straight. And that has taken many months to overcome.
