Recently I was on Yahoo Answers and I came across this question. The answer I gave was an extremely fun trip down into my memories. I thought I should share it with you all.
Smoking weed is the BEST drug out there for the fact that it does the least harm to you and you can’t really overdose on it.
The first thing you feel is the burn in your lungs as you inhale the smoke. Now bare with me here, because I have smoked way too many times and I paid Very close attention to what it was doing to me. It made the high feel a lot more trippy and fun.
If you pay close attention you can feel the THC in your blood veins traveling around and making you tingle all over your body. I imagined that it was like millions of spiky crystals bouncing off the walls of my blood veins and triggering my nerves. Eventually that feeling fades into numbness due to the fact that your brain is getting too many signals too fast.
At that point your world starts to shrink. Everything outside of the building you are sitting in drops away from your thoughts. Your world now consists of the house you are sitting in. As you ponder this It is only you and the house. Time has dropped away from your thoughts at this point and you are no longer concerned with schedules (this is why it’s so relaxing to take it). I suspect at that point you are among friends in a smoking circle so you realize that there are others in the room and they are talking. You spend the next while trying to keep up with the conversation which you are doing very well in your head because it is pretty much the only thing on your mind at this point. By now, the rest of the house drops away and its just you, your friends and the room you are sitting in.
If you were alone your head would go into kind of an autopilot, You would find a task to occupy your time and you would probably lose yourself in it. You would be surprised how much you can get done when you are high if your brain focuses on the right task. I think that is why people like to get high at dead end jobs. one of the side effects is that it makes you not care whether what you are doing is boring or not, you just know that you need to do it and that’s OK.
Now let’s go through a list of the senses
You know how, when you look left and then right with your eyes, you sight just instantly shifts to it’s next destination without focusing on anything in the middle? Well When you are high Your brain tends to notice the full motion of that movement. You may not notice it, but that is what makes you kinda dizzy feeling.
Forget this sense unless it is a strong smell. Most of what you will be smelling is the weed you just inhaled. That’s what gives you paranoia about getting caught high. You smell weed everywhere even if no one else can. If you do smell something it will definitely catch your attention though, because now your brain will focus on anything in an instant.
Oh Wow! Taste takes on a whole new meaning when your are high. It moves right in with touch. When somebody mentions food it seems to be all your brain can think about. Since your whole body feels numb, your stomach has pretty much lost the feeling of being full, so now your brain is telling you “I need to eat”. The Greatest foods to eat when you are high are anything Crunchy and sweet! Smores are to DIE for. Oreo’s, and popcorn and cereal and chips and crackers and ice-cream. Oh MY!!!! Be forewarned! When you do finally feel full it will not be a pleasant feeling.
Not much going on here unless you couple it with taste. You feel the full weight of your body and how your muscles have to work to keep you from being a big pile of mush. So what do you do? You do your best to act like a big pile of mush. It is a very good muscle relaxer.
Not much to Say hear either. You don’t pay very much attention to what you are hearing when you are high. However when you do start listening you will wish that you could be in complete silence for once in your life.
In Closing, weed is a very fun drug to try out, but it does come with consequences. You can’t think as clearly when you are on weed and the detox period is not very fun either if you have been regularly smoking. The DTs seem to take the form of depression and anger. You just have to bare with it and let the clouds part by themselves. I noticed that after smoking a lot, I have developed a studder that I didn’t have before and my memory isn’t what it used to be. Keep in mind though I used to drink a lot as well. I don’t any more. And I only recommend mixing smoking and drinking as a one-time-thing. It is a little more dangerous.
I hope you liked this. It is the most I have ever typed in Yahoo answers.
