One Day

2 years, 1 month ago

Smoking weed puts life back in perspective, the best way I have come to describe it after years of smoking, is the sense of appreciation of the universe (by which I mean everything/everyone) that comes with being high. “Stoners” forget “things” because we’re too busy thinking about what is truly important, or at least trying to work out what is!

The more we smoke the harder it is to get high (in the long term), but I believe that’s only because your “sober” mind becomes closer and closer to your high state (by literally making new connections between neurons). If you disagree take a moment to reflect on how your view has changed since you’ve been smoking… For the same reason its not recommended for developing minds, but many of us have made that so called mistake but yet would not change a thing.

The day we can maintain the sense of appreciation we get from smoking we will stop, because there will be no need.


One day.

I know that feeling. I think however, it’s more like smoking raises the dopamine (and saratonine?) level/s in your brain. I’ve reached the point where I feel I can create these levels on my own (but still smoke occasionally,but it’s a different high). Weed definitely changes your perspective on things, but I also think it’s contributed to me forgetting a lot. But overall, I agree.

Aren’t minds always likely to develop? I smoked yesterday (unusual for me) and my mind blocked for a little while.

““Stoners” forget “things” because we’re too busy thinking about what is truly important, or at least trying to work out what is!” – Are you saying that smoking weed manipulates your thoughts to think about something more significant? It’d be awesome if it was true… but weed doesn’t have such power. :D You do.

Thank you Sasho, I guess what I’m saying is it opened my eyes to these new perspectives, that it helped me see past all the distractions – and still does. In other words I don’t think I would feel the sense of connection with the universe as much as I do today without it.

And Edward, I see why you disagree on the neuron connection aspect, weed is heavily linked to receptors in the brain rather than neurons, but I’m sure that through the experience and all the time I’ve spent high, there are connections up in here that wouldn’t be without weed! Lastly, the stuff I forgot always turned out to be less important than I thought it was, looking at life from my more enlightened perspective. Thanks again.

@beyond, I think you guys are all right in a way. The power to access higher mind states does lie within us , but attaining those states requires a great deal of relaxation. Cannabis obviously helps us relax :D. When you are relaxed and in a deep mental state of contemplation, then I think you can start to experience higher levels of consciousness. Cannabis isn’t necessary, but I think it can help a lot of people get introduced to those mental states.


Seems unlikely to me, but interesting theory none the less.
