So 2 days ago, I got high from weed for the first time. (And last night) I vaped it through a thing called the volcano. My experience was super weird. I don’t know if I’m just being stupid and this is normal or if it was laced with something. But anyways, I felt so weird. I felt like I was in a legit dream but I knew I wasn’t. I knew it couldn’t be a dream because I was having an actual conversations with my boyfriend and his friend. I could read what was on their shirts and everything they were saying was making sense. The thing that made it feel like a dream was that I couldn’t really focus, and things I had said 2 seconds ago, felt like ages ago. It felt like as soon as the words left my mouth, I had forgotten them or that they were so long ago that I don’t remember what I said. My boyfriend was making me food and it probably took 10 min but it literally felt like hours. When I first realized I was high and didn’t feel normal, I freaked out because it felt like a dream and I couldn’t concentrate. My heart started pounding and everything felt tingly. My whole body felt numb or like it was pins and needles. I felt like I was going to die or pass out (I know I’m a wuss). But then my boyfriend told me it was okay and layed me down and I started laughing. I giggled a lot and got super hungry. I would not stop eating. Seriously kept eating and eating. Then my body would feel like it was melting. Like even my face was melting. My legs felt like they weren’t there or they were super light. My ankles would twitch a bunch. From what I’ve heard from people, being high makes them feel “chill” and I definitely didn’t feel chill. I guess at some points I did. You hear the usual munchies and time feels slow thing, but for my body to feel like it was melting and everything’s a dream? Is that what being high from marijuana actually feels like? Has anyone felt this way also or am I crazy or is it laced? Halp guys ;-;
I do not think you are crazy, but I also don’t think it was laced. I’m assuming this was not your boyfriend or his friend’s first time smoking. Their tolerance for it is going to be a lot higher than yours. I’m confident that you got too high, you smoked too much. I rarely smoke, so when I do, I take a very small hit from a onnie and go from there. Almost always, that tiny baby hit is quite enough for me, meanwhile my friends are taking massive rips off a bong. I’ve set a rule for myself that I will not smoke from a bong or a volcano (ohhmygodthosebagsarehugehowdidyousurvive), because I know that’s too much for me. I know that if I tried to keep up with everyone else, I would have a terrible time. I used to feel very self conscious and afraid that people I was smoking with would call me a pussy or think I was lame for not being able to smoke much, but I’ve since realized that if they do, they’re not the kind of people I want to hang out with at all.
Every time I’ve ever pressured myself into keeping up with everyone else, I ended up feeling exactly how you’re describing. I legit felt as though I was going to die, shit my pants and throw up all at the same time. I was having blackouts where I wasn’t remembering things very well and time felt like it was almost muddy? And it made me very panicky, especially considering when I’d look around no one else seemed to be having a difficult time. I couldn’t follow conversations very well because I’d forget what was just said and I ended up feeling really cold and alone despite being with a bunch of people. Then, the times where I’ve only taken that very small hit, I enjoyed my time and still felt high, but not too high.
IN SHORT: I really really really recommend you take it slow. Just take a small hit first and see how you feel. If you don’t feel anything after a few minutes, take another little hit and keep going like that. But whatever happens, remember that you’re not actually dying. Weed has never killed anyone. Also it helps to smoke only with people you’re super comfortable with so you won’t feel embarrassed to let them know if you’re having a weird time. I’ve found that being able to tell someone helps me feel less scared. I think you’ve got yourself a good guy, remembering that he’ll help you out could also help you if you ever end up too high again. Good luck!!
Find something to focus on, its alot about mind control. If you think about bad things, its easier to stay in that mode of thinking when youre high. Then you’ll trip out and have a bad time. Watch a funny movie, do some art, listen to some dope music, read a good ass book (tho its hard cuz sometimes you’ll find yourself reading sentences over and over again because you’ll forget the beginning of the sentence when you get to the end of it HAHA! But its worth it!! Read slaughter house five stoned, it was awesome!) But it really is training for your real life, sober life. Don’t focus on the bad, follow your bliss. Have a short term memory but keep long term goals. And all that other mushy, platitudinous shit!
