Re: Weed cured my anxiety
you have anxiety because you don't have enough to do.

Pot made you feel more comfortable doing nothing.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1383749


I'm sorry but you are wrong. I am a RN and I have worked all my adult life, untill I got sick 3 yrs ago. Along with the physical illness came the anxiety, and nothing has been able to releave it, except weed. Weed also helps my other physical conditions. And still, when sick and a stay at home mum, I have children and a husband to take care of and a big farm house. So I have to disagree with you.

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
Good for you OP. Weed is a beautiful plant that is safe if used and grown right. It also brings people together, just look at hempfest.

Unfortunatly for me, I don't smoke it if I need to really pay attention in class or something similar. I just tend to space off or only fixate on one issue instead of the whole lesson lol. It affects people differently X)

But if i really want to appreciate dif aspects of music or movies, it helps out a lot there. I catch things I didn't see/hear before and can analyze it almost like an english professor haha.

Weed also helps me calm down. It's a great stress reliever and gets me to do one thing at a time in order to finish them all.

peace

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
I don't think brain damage is realistic, but I know for a fact it can fuck with your psyche.

Out of everything I have done in life, acid, shrooms, e, coke, pills, weed, etc. If I could go back and not do one of them, it would have been smoking weed.

The chain reaction from not smoking weed would have removed all of those other substances from my life, but besides that point, weed destroyed me. It turned me from a talkative, everyone loves me, into a shy, sit in the corner and roll a joint person that only cared about when the next hit of weed was. I went through all of high school only caring about one thing, and that was getting high. I am 26 now, and I can't make friends because when I was going through that all important time in which you learn social interaction on more of an adult level, I only worried about getting high, nothing else. I can't have conversations with girls, I can't interact with people, I can't do shit. My psyche is completely FUCKED, and it is single handedly because of weed.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22151483



My story is similar, however, I was able to fix it, somewhat at least. To start, before I smoked weed I was already socially awkward and anxious. After I found weed, I felt (or possibly convinced myself that I was) much less anxious and and thus a good bit care-free. I had a lot of fun with a new group of friends and eventually weed became a centerpiece of sorts for all the things we did. Whatever we or I was going to do, sure enough, weed preceded it.

After about six months of having fun, it came to the point where I had used it enough and associated my only happiness with smoking, so in turn, I smoked a lot more. Eventually, my anxiety came back and even stronger than before. This probably lasted for a year and a half and it really got to the point where I couldn't think about how I would go about my day without weed. I was in a constant state of intoxication and the fatigue that followed. I slept a lot more, became more apathetic, and I really just felt like shit. Actually, I started considering the possibility that I had depersonalization disorder or that I was a schizoid, based on my severe detachment from everything.

Somehow, I just realized that there was no reason in continuing smoking if it gave me all this terrible anxiety and behaviors, even if all my friends still smoked and it went against my previous adherence to the popular marijuana culture. I used to find comfort in that but I just realized I wasn't my friends, nor was I interested in the same lifestyle. After time, my detachment became much less severe, I could function in society and talk to other people without forgetting everything I'm trying to say and do so much more confidently. That's not to say I'm outgoing and talkative, however, I don't feel like shit, nor am I insecure about everything I say or do.

By the way, I'm not trying to shill on weed. This is my personal experience and I'm not trying to say this happens to everyone, because it most definitely does not. One notable con though (besides not being able to get high without going crazy) does include my substitution of mj for tobacco, which I'm not exactly proud of. Having a girlfriend definitely does help, and further assistance can usually be found in alcohol ;)

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
Cannabinoids are neuroprotective.

Anxiety stems from the combination of "mind-expansion" and malicious/widespread political propaganda.

Weed is perfectly safe.

ANYONE that says otherwise is either an idiot, a bigot, or is actively malicious.

On another note, this thread is not about cancer and its roots as you have stated, nor was it ever. Perhaps YOU "single-handedly" made it about that, and in this case, if you can divert the point of conversation to be a dick, than I deserve an equal right to divert your insult to point out that cancer is not the only thing you should be worrying about. Does that make sense, my Malaysian dickhead?

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
Ya it was, this is a common misconception.

Source: People who smoked weed in the 60s from all over the world.

EDIT: Moar source: Hindus who have been using and perfecting cannabis cultivation for thousands of years. There was just as good of weed back then as now. [link to en.wikipedia.org]
------------------------------------
Sorry new to the software...

I boycott wikipedia. Bunch of distortions.

According to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, marijuana is much more powerful and so are the mind-altering effects associated with use. Average THC levels rose from less than one percent in the mid-1970s to more than six percent in 2002. This means that even what is considered just skunk weed, can be six to ten times more potent than what was available in the 60’s and 70’s. No marijuana is the same; dealers can mix marijuana with other substances, from oregano to being laced with PCP, which means you can’t rely on what you are getting. Sinsemilla potency increased in the past two decades from six percent to more than 13 percent, with some samples containing THC levels of up to 33 percent.

[link to oade.nd.edu]
 Quoting: Alchemist4444


No offense intended here but how can you react to Wikipedia with skepticism while trusting the assertions of the U.S. government's Office Of National Drug Control Policy? The same government who lists marijuana as a Schedule 1 narcotic which means they assert it has no accepted medical uses/applications? It is vital to exercise caution/discernment when reading anything that is propogated by the government concerning marijuana. 99% of the time it is designed to further their refutation of the truth about the substance. It's been this way for decades.

Medical science FACT spits in the face of the government's assertion that cannabis has no medicinal applications, and that glaring contradiction alone is sufficient enough to convince your average critical thinker that the government has no vested interest in communicating 'facts' about marijuana to the public.

peace
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


No offense taken. Regarding wikipedia. I have witnessed on numerous occassions health advocates trying to edit wikipedia to update information on health issues. Couldn't quite understand what was happening until I read this:

"Pro-Israel group’s plan to rewrite history on Wikipedia"

[link to www.globalresearch.ca]

I don't take anybody's word for anything, that's why I'm here to have a rational debate and try to learn something.

However, as I posted in my earlier link, it's the CBD's that have the most benefits according to independent research and not the THC.

Click on this link for nice pie graph illustrating the benefits of various compounds in cannibis.

[link to www.sclabs.com]

I'm not againt cannibis for medicine, I just think it needs to be understood better.

For certain conditions some THC may be ok. It's this very high THC weed that just intuitively doesn't seem good to me.

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
Weed used to be great for my anxiety but something changed a few years ago, probably around the time i started using psychedelics more regularly.... These days if my tolerance to weed is low, weed will bring on shocking anxiety that lasts until the high is over, after a day of two or smoking these effects go away but it still does nothing for my anxiety....

Re: Weed cured my anxiety
weed actually does cure much of my anxiety though... but it's mostly when Im isolated. That's what high THC hybrids do to you though also..

it cures my anxiety more when I eat the bud but I dont buy my own weed, not much money. If I did I would just eat it when I needed it. So... instead I just get high, be paranoid and have agoraphobia until I quit and take time to recover.
