I think I have grown out of cannabis
    #67917 - 06/28/08 03:52 AM (8 years, 5 months ago)

I just don't like the effects anymore :shrug:. I rather be sober to be honest.

Opiates however...have not changed for me so far, I love them every time.

I still like psychedelics as well.

I'm just not liking pot anymore :sad:, I use to really love it.

I haven't smoked in two days and I feel great/clear minded...
but I still miss it, but not as much as I used to when not having it.

But I agree, I would much rather have opiates.

well, I pretty much have quit, I rarely even do it anymore. I haven't smoked daily in about 2 years. Its just...irritating, I want my old highs back. It was sort of a weird cycle, I smoked daily for a few months,then I ran out of money for a little bit so I stopped for a month. And then I tried to get back into it...but it just wasn't the same. I got it from the same guy :shrug:. So every once in a while, I will try it again, to see if I will like it again. Like I am trying to force myself to like it again. Uhhhg, it makes me so angry, that it changed on me like that. Its fucking bullshit.

Maybe a break would be good. Lower the tolerance and all, but be careful liking the opiates so much. Believe me, it will not end good one a habit.

If he hasn't been smoking daily for 2 years I don't think that he'd be having tolerance problems.  Well, at least not a problem of too much tolerance.

It could easily be a problem of too little tolerance.  Several months ago I took a week off smoking weed to get my tolerance down and clear my head.  Well, in the absence of weed, my schoolwork started tanking, so I went and picked up some more weed.  The problem was, like aDos said, it just wasn't the same.  My tolerance had dropped, and it just made me all fuzzy and tired; it even caused me to take several hour naps in the middle of the day the first two days after I started smoking again, and I never do that.  Basically I just forced myself to keep smoking more for a couple days to get my tolerance back up, and the effects that I enjoy returned.

Some people claim that moderation is the key with cannabis, but I can only get the desired effects with constant use.

I don't think I could ever grow out of cannabis.

I go through phases-- I've put it down completely for three months at a stretch, and never missed it, and I've smoked every night for a week-- but my happy medium is a night or two during the week, plus part (or most) of the weekend.

One thing that struck me about the poster's comments though was the change in the high he perceived... sounds like he's smoking different weed, with different effects--

if there's one thing I know for absolute certain, it's the fact that some weed just doesn't "click" with some people, while other strains knock your socks off and leave others underwhelmed.

I'm only suggesting that his contact is selling him different type/quality of green (which can vary from plant-to-plant, even within the same strain) than what he remembers.

Just my 2 cents...

Cannabis is a great tool-- don't give up on it until you know you are really "over" it, and not just tokin' on some mediocre or poor-fitting green :smile:

:cheers:

I wouldn't be so sure.  Especially in my first few years of smoking, I would notice the sort of effects that I got from cannabis shift and change periodically.  This most likely has to do with the different relative buildups of cannabinoids and cannabinoid metabolites.  Some of those things have halflives of over 3 days!  And of course then there's the fact that receptors regulate various parts of the signal transduction pathways based on chronic exposure.  There's a lot of variables there that can easily lead to different effects from the same pot based on idiosynchratic usage patterns over the years.
