How well do you tolerate marijuana?

Postby Number23 » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:40 am

Given that schizoid personality is on the schizophrenia spectrum and weed increases the risk of developing schizophrenia, I was wondering how do schizoids here react when smoking marijuana.

Personally speaking, I really don't tolerate it well. If there's an once of anxiety buried in me, pot will bring it into the open and make it bigger. Paranoia might become manifest too. I will even feel bad before smoking any of it. Fortunately, I don't take that $#%^ anymore.

I'm a weedhead, so yeah, I have issues.

I don't smoke nearly as much as I used to, but so what. Technically I'm a drug addict.

Marijuana can make me paranoid in high doses, but I don't smoke up like that anymore. It definitely makes me more insular and withdrawn, but I was introverted long before I started smoking.

A simple trip to the grocery store can be thwarted by getting even a little bit high, but if I have some social obligation I can't get out of, smoking will make it more bearable. If I'm already out, it can increase my sociability, but that's not necessarily a good thing because it can also make me stupid and abstract to the point where nobody knows what the hell I'm talking about.

For me, it crushes anxiety better than alcohol or benzos. So there's that.

How do you get benzos? My psychiatrist said they are bad for long term consumption. That's why she never considered them for me. They're also often abused.

From my friendly neighborhood pharmacist. I have a prescription.

Once you take benzos medicinally, you can no longer enjoy them recreationally. :(

It pretty much makes all of my schizoid traits stronger and makes me anxious if I'm high in public, so I'll rarely partake anymore these days. It makes listening to music more interesting though.

I withdraw if I smoke weed so I don't do it.

Used to be able to tolerate it when I was younger and I would smoke it morning, noon and dinner and I'd be really sociable and it never got in the way of work or other pursuits.

If I use it now I'd lock my door, close my curtains and just stare at the television. I'd be quite happy to do that of course but I wouldn't be able to earn any money in that mental state.

There's a difference between using marijuana and letting it use you. I never did get around to watching that movie, by the way. After I finished the show, I looked around to find another one to start watching. After sampling a lot of crap, I found some French zombie show that was pretty good. I never would have had the patience to find it if I hadn't smoked. The episodes are very long, too. After I finished the first one, I realized that it was a movie, not a show. So I smoked some more and then jumped out the window because I could flyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!
