Pot and memory
    #587215 - 09/18/11 04:20 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

How do you find pot affects your memory?
I dont smoke much, usually like one .25g joint 3-5 nights a week and I am really starting to notice memory loss, even though I thought that small a quantity would not affect it.
I have trouble remembering things I studied thoroughly last week. Its not processing power so to speak, I have a lot of that still, just my memory bank. Otherwise I am in perfect health.

Do you find any difference with memory loss between indicas and sativas? I smoke only indicas cause thats all I can get.

I am worried I am going to have to all out quit because this is affecting my education. Though it could be another factor altogether so I am going to examine other areas, I figured this would be the place to ask about the marijuana factor though.

I do find smoking a lot of Indica can leave you feeling dumb and maybe forgetful. But remember sometimes sober people forget things too.

Very true. I (somehow) remember a big difference though when I was mostly sober smoking once or twice a month.

My memory is permanently trashed but not from smoking.  I actually find smoking helps my memory because it allows me to actually focus upon the little things I would normally overlook.  Life without pot is even more a blur than life with it.

Only when under the influence of pot is my short term memory somewhat affected, and usually it's only mind numbing indicas that induce this. But over the past 5 years of smoking damn near daily I do not notice my memory being affected what so ever, not to toot my own horn but I actually have a damn good memory. I've noticed all my friends that started to smoke when they were relatively young (12 to 15 years old) have rather shitty memory, I didn't start smoking until I was 19 so :shrug: .


With out searching for sources to back this up, I'm going to say alcohol is far more detrimental to ones memory that cannabis is.

Well, I think it affects my short term memory detrimentally. I too smoke about .25g per day, but spaced out so I'm medicated most of the day.

You just have to make it work. Find studying methods that take into account your limitations and do the best you can do.

I face the same dilemma, taking an engineering course, but honestly, my memory was shit to begin with. Pot doesn't help in that sense, but it does help take away the pains of having your head in a book all day every day, so yeah...

I don't know what I'd do without it, so I just don't consider it an option, and I do my best to make shit work. :froman:

Plus I got an ADHD diagnosis a couple years back so I could get some legal amphetamines :pill2: and then I found out that as a bonus I could get twice as much time on all my exams because I'm "disabled".

Shit's sweet. :awesome:

I'm not sure to be honest.

I kinda don't remember shit too well, but it might be for other reasons. I remember the dumbest shit from when I was a kid. Like, word for word what people said. I can remember the name of the ice cream man from Hey Arnold (before I downloaded it the other day) and other stupid shit like that, but I can't remember to do something I've been meaning to do.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Back when I used to smoke shitloads my short term memory was BAD. Like i'd used to frequently forget what I was talking about mid sentence. It was so bad you could probably tell I was a pothead within 5 seconds of talking to me based on my speech alone.
Nowadays my short term memory is fine as I don't smoke nearly as much as I used to. For what its worth short term memory loss is the only real negative side effect i've ever had from 6 years of smoking weed. Its all completley temporary though. If I stopped smoking for like a month, my brain would return to normal. But then id lose my 'stonerness' so fuck that.

Man I need to get that diagnosis, I just cant write an exam quickly, rarely get done in time. How do you get diagnosed with ADHD? I have concentration problems and am always going from one thing to another.

If you dont mind me asking, where ya at school? (if your in ont.)

Symptoms of ADHD

There are three different categories of ADHD symptoms: inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity.

Inattention may not become apparent until a child enters the challenging environment of school. In adults, symptoms of inattention may manifest in work or in social situations.

A person with ADHD may have some or all of the following symptoms:

difficulty paying attention to details and tendency to make careless mistakes in school  or other activities; producing work that is often messy and careless Check
easily distracted by irrelevant stimuli and frequently interrupting ongoing tasks to attend to trivial noises or events that are usually ignored by others Check
inability to sustain attention on tasks or activities Check
difficulty finishing schoolwork or paperwork or performing tasks that require concentration Check
frequent shifts from one uncompleted activity to another Check
procrastination Check
disorganized work habits Check
forgetfulness in daily activities (for example, missing appointments, forgetting to bring lunch) Check
failure to complete tasks such as homework or chores Check
frequent shifts in conversation, not listening to others, not keeping one's mind on conversations, and not following details or rules of activities in social situations Check

Hyperactivity symptoms may be apparent in very young preschoolers and are nearly always present before the age of seven. Symptoms include:

fidgeting, squirming when seated Check
getting up frequently to walk or run around Check
running or climbing excessively when it's inappropriate (in teens this may appear as restlessness)
having difficulty playing quietly or engaging in quiet leisure activities
being always on the go Check
often talking excessively
Hyperactivity may vary with age and developmental stage.




Damn..

damn dude i don't have adhd but i guess i have add or something

I do everything on the ADD list. At work i definatly go through with a bunch of incomplete tasks like crazy, but if i put my mind too it i can easily do the shit one by one, it just gets boring that way


It's kinda like, I'm so damn lazy that i exhibit symptoms of ADD but i'm going to college now and i can pay attention there and shit so it's like i gave myself add throughout the years by not stimulating that part of my brain but i'm fixing it by simply paying attention

i have ADD for sure. It's really bad, and convinces me it's a real disorder.
Pot makes it worse if i'm using it often.

I'd say I have a pretty good memory and I smoke all the time. I can remember crazy stuff like the color of a persons shirt 10 years ago but somehow forget important dates like holidays or simple stuff like the day of the week.

I'm exactly the same.

There has to be a name/word for that.

I have great memory and I smoke pot daily, and have been smoking everyday for a really long
time; over three years at least. I may occasionally take a break for about a week, but it's
not significant enough for me to remember.

It used to kill my short-term memory at times, especially when I first started smoking, but
now it ain't even a thang.
