How to help bad trips on marijuana?
    #555710 - 05/15/11 01:52 PM (5 years, 6 months ago)

So i have taken a 7 month break from marijuana because the last 2 times i smoked scared me away from a beautiful herb.
My heart would start pounding, i would end up freaking out, the second time i got a pressure in my chest. I thought i was going to have a heart attack. But looking back i think it was just anxiety from an increased heart rate or something.
I want to know how i can help this? i plan to take .5 or 1mg xannax, and only taking 1 or 2 tokes.
my main question would be which would be better to not have another bad trip,
Would it be better to smoke regs, mids, high quality to start with?

Dude if the shit gives you panic attacks dont smoke it, it aint a beautiful herb if you're scared shitless and thinking you're having a heart attack. Also nobody calls getting high a "trip".
Pot aint for everybody.

Just slow down your intake and take it one step at a time man. Smoke a little, see how you feel, smoke a little more, and so on and so forth.

If you start to freak out just get one of your friends to get you a glass of water and something to eat and just calm yourself down. Deep breaths, maybe lie down or something, all I know is that in the millions of years people have been smoking nobody has died or been injured from it, so just keep that in mind and you'll be fine. Its all in your head, just chillout and enjoy the high.

Just smoke a little bit at a time. Remind yourself you are just high as shit if everything starts getting fucked up.

I'm going to try and reassure myself that it will pass soon, if anything does happen.

you shouldn't do it again until you can do it without that psychological hurdle to overcome.  that's just my 2 cents.  but shit, im no doctor man.  I just really think that the mindset is a very important factor in these things.  Psychedelics have shown me that.  thoughts are very powerful things, even if not vocalized.

I say don't take the xanax
Marijuana is a great herb
it's all in your head man
before smoking meditate a little bit
relax yourself
confront any worries before smoking
realize you will not be in any danger
close your eyes, relax, and take a puff
then relax and enjoy yourself
don't think too much
:bonghit:
follow these instructions:

Don't smoke as much and zone out with a movie or something to distract you... It's like a blessing in disguise though, I miss the days when I would be freaking out and paranoid, now getting high is more like chasing the dragon, except it's more like a fluffy bunny.

i have been reading about other peoples bad experiences with cannabis, and others claim to have had anxiety attacks from fast heart rate like me. Which is starting to make me calm down a little bit about the whole thing because i'm not alone, and that i'll be safe just like these other people that have gotten through this.

Id bet you have some deep seated psychological issues, does your family have a history of any mental disorders, e.g schizo, bipolar or severe OCD

My family does, schizo, and I personally cannot take mushrooms right now, no matter what It always goes bad, and even if I think its good its not the beautiful euphoria I once had on them, and that I read about from others.. I plan on giving it time, see how I feel in a few years.. It seems like you are doing the same with weed,

I can personally smoke weed all day and not get a bad trip, but if I smoke and something puts me in a bad mindset it can end up going bad, not so bad I can't get myself out of it, but I may be extremely depressed for a few minutes..

If I could recommend anything make a playlist of music about 2 hours long, and wait for a nice sunny day, lay down in the grass, start your playlist and just relax for a bit, the time will come when you say im ready, smoke slowly, Id reccomend mids or ow quality shit to help prevent intense paranoia or fear , smoke a little bit, lay down , listen to a few songs, if you want, after a few songs, smoke a little bit more, continue cycle, enjoy sun, conquer preconceptions and fears :thumbup:

you dont have to hold your tokes in btw, you will get more stoned that way, but it might be too much for you, blowing tokes will get you stoned very easily and not too intense and gradual .

good luck, cannabis is a beautiful herb, its all about finding the beauty

I have a family history of severe depression, but nothing else that i know of. I do have hypochondria though. That was probably some of the best advice i have come by, thank you
