Does anyone else become productive and active when high?

wonderboy91 (@wonderboy91) 8 years, 9 months ago

I’m a daily smoker of weed. It’s not an all day err day kinda thing. I’d say I’d average out about once a day. When I’m high though I become extremely productive and active. Ima already a pretty active and productive guy but weed just makes me even more so that way. I work at the olive garden as a cook and its a pretty hectic job. im a very diligent worker and i often have no problem clearing my orders sober. yet when i smoke i turn into this superman. im cleaning like cray and also doing my orders while also helping the other cooks who are crashing, and still finding time to filrt with the waitresses. At home while stoned I read write draw. And sometimes when I hit the gym ill go in stoned as fuck. I used to be the typical lazy munching stoner but that has since changed partly due to alot of the messages this site has to offer. I feel like it’s stoners like me who should be on the frontlines of legalization because we show how weed isn’t bad at all. Anyone else the same way when they smoke?

I don’t smoke alone very often, but when I do I usually work out or clean my whole house. Super motivated. When I smoke with friends, that’s when I end up sitting on the couch munching on food.

When I do I get crazy motivated… life gets planned out fairly well

I’m that way. I love to get things done, read, write, and spend a copious amount of time browsing this website. Life seems to become clearer and the things that need to be done to me standout while under the influence. After i experimented with my first psychedelic, being lsd, I saw revelations and the concept became clear of sharpening up and creating a productive outlook. I learned at that moment that to smoke and get things done can be a liberating and positive experience. In turn, creating a better version of yourself.

I get creative when drunk. Then write things in a little book.. Then wake up the next day with a hangover, and a serious black cloud of self loathing and regret from getting drunk and then can’t face opening the book to fulfil the ideas.

It’s an awful cycle, yet great at the time (like now- thought of a brilliant idea for a screen play)

@piptherational, That’s awesome. I feel the same way to a certain extent. When I’m drunk I feel as if I’m incredibly more imaginative and able to create ideas, and many of them. Always regret drinking the morning after, though….this morning especially. I also get like a weird “clarity” in my thoughts the morning after, despite feeling like absolute shit.

@wonderboy91 Absolutely. When I smoke, my general choice of activities are physical conditioning, whether it’s go for a jog in the woods or go to the gym, then I choose to further my education in physics. I take notes and do practice problems for fun. I’m 1050 pages into a 1200 page physics book. I also love to draw when high, I have also written several papers about various epiphanies I’ve had while high. The stereotype that smoking makes people lazy is stupid. Lazy people are lazy when they are high, and its due to their very nature, not due to the THC. Weed amplifies who you are.

Despite if its saliva or indica, when I vape my weed I usually get a more alert and energetic high.

It’s awesome to see how there are so many others like me out there. In my area I feel as if I’m the only one who is like this. Most people my age in my community just waste away themselves in a sense and let themselves be controlled by simple pleasures. Like I said it’ll be people like us that will step into the limelight and provide a positive example of a “stoner lifestyle” our influence I feel may even lead to a full on nation wide legalization but who knows only time will tell.

Gives me tons of energy to be spontaneous, creative, and active. Then! Once it has allowed me to exhaust myself it puts me into a comfortable and natural sleep. When I try and go to sleep sober it always feels a little forced and I have trouble quieting my mind. Marijuana is mi amigo.

@afgoo Falling asleep is indeed much better with weed!!!

I usually don’t get super active but I get productive. I know its no news flash but I love painting when im stoned. It feels like the paint just falls where it should and creates my pieces. I’m far from a professional but it sure helps.

Weed fucks me up and makes me tired. I get hyper for like 15 minutes then I just feel like vegging out. Y’all must be smoking different weed than me or your lives are just more demanding.

@estefania1, That cold blue *forest is awesome too, I’d probably hang that one up in a bedroom/living room. Keep doing your art, you’re good.

Yeah. Good ol’ adderall will do that.
j/k.

When I used to blaze I’d get bouts of inspiration, especially with art and writing. I’d be able to focus on what I wanted to do without becoming distracting by anything (well, except the munchies). I would come up with some cool artistic graffiti ideas too. Though I don’t think I’ll be stepping outside armed with spray paint while stoned anymore. LOL.
