Weed has changed my life in so many ways. Ever since I started about a year ago, my life has gotten better in dozens of little (and BIG) ways every single day. Heres a couple of examples.

Before I smoked, I was pretty cleanly, but I rarely actually spent time cleaning my room. As soon as I started smoking consistently, I ended up cleaning little areas without even thinking about it. I soon realized that this was because smoking increases my patience and also makes me become very efficiency minded. And once my entire room was vacumed, wiped, dusted, rearranged, folded, and decorated, I began subconsciously applying those ideas for awesome at an exponential rate.

In the bast year I have picked up reading, wrote and produced about a dozen dynamic songs, learned to play chess, and I’m currently on my second little black book, which is something very special to me. Its basically an algamation of all the high-deas (high-ideas) I’ve ever had. Sometimes It’s me learning to draw an abstract shape, or writing a quote. Other times it is journaling my stream of consciousness and new ideas, and fantastic highlighter injected mosaics of awesome. It really is something, I’d love to share that with you guys. I’m also learning to write with my left hand. Its coming quite smoothly after only 3 days.

I’m a very quick learner, and have found that with the correct level of patience, and determination that I can literally accomplish anything I want. I’ve unlocked endless personal epiphanies regarding the meaning of life, I’ve logically deduced my own set of idealisms and belief. I’ve torn through over 300 pages of journaling in under 2 months, and I’m just dying to put all this potential toward something awesome. But I’m really not trying to brag… I’m only testifying to the amazing way marijuana has affected me and my life.

Maybe I’m not alone. Do you relate to any of this? I’m just trying to figure out my place and purpose in the universe, but for now I’m just sharpening tools and learning.

I’m happy for your accomplishments, but they can be achieved without weed too. If it works for you, it’s ok, but as everything in life, don’t exaggerate ;)

Have you ever seen the film limitless? When Bradley Cooper uses that super drug to first, straighten up his life, then he accomplishes various incredible feats, and after enough time, he is so well refined he no longer even needs it anymore. I feel like thats how smoking is making me. Its just concentrating me, keeping me inspired and motivated, and turning my chaotic mind into something that is both creative and constantly evolves. And I’m not exaggerating one bit. In all honestly I’m terribly understating its role in the endless positive changes in my life in a somewhat feeble attempt to retain humility. It really has been and continued to assit me in the mastery of countless amusing, and useful tricks, and inspired me to create endless wonders in the bounding of my journals.

I guess maybe smoking just happens to effect you different if you happen to be creative and stuff to start with. I honestly just want to share a bit of my mind and perhaps impress an thoughtful idea or two with a few fellow inspired individuals. What good is wisdom when it brings no benefit to the wise?

I know exactly what you mean, together with meditation, I can tap into higher consciousness. It also made me a neat person, and taught me how to love more.

Thats awesome I felt the same way! I was such a pissed off person but medicating has allowed me to literally expand my mind. I was so closed minded. My gf thinks im crazy and almost sometimes looks down on me for this crutch but I really dont care…..cuz im high hahaha.

@garyson, @gabrielong1992, They might call us crazy and they might call us nuts, but they aught to remember one thing. The mighty oak tree was once a nut like us.

I find that with the assistive properties sativa allows me, I’m able to create more abstract and visually interestingly, speak clearer, and I always stay clean. And being a creative and intelligent person to begin with really boosts its effectiveness.

Sure, I absolutely could live without it, but who wouldn’t want to experience super powers daily? Thats how I see it. When I medicate, my mind enteres another level of consciousness and clarity.

I think almost everybody here knows what you mean. At first, 4 years ago, I was scared of it, being like an opening door to drug addiction. But after many stories like this I built up courage and promised myself I wouldn’t get addicted to any drug, so I just gave it a try. And man it’s

Sorry… I got problems with this… Any way, it’s an incredible experience!! And better yet, I can’t see it as a door to any other addiction!!

Music, when I hear it, literally makes love to my ears and brain… Every single detail of the song, every intention of each instrument, every feeling the author wanted to express through it… Man, it’s like I’m hearing music for the first time in my life!!
I am able to think more and deeper than I did when I didn’t use to smoke!! My creativity (and that’s mainly my job) is getting higher each day!! Movies have a way deeper meaning than they normally do!! I’m able to concentrate, which I wasn’t before I started smoking!! I meditate, I also write, I compose, I draw and my communication is better with everyone. My anger and my stress have lowered to the point people ask me if I’m ok!! And I certainly am!!

And the best part is, each day I can do it more and more without weed!! I have even surprised myself with things I’ve done sober lots of times!! It’s like I’m finding that harmony between me and the rest of the world, between me and art, between me and love in so many levels!!

Of course, it should be done moderately, every excess is bad for anyone… I smoke in average twice a week and I already feel like I’m smoking a lot (yeah, maybe some are gonna laugh at it) but yes… It has changed my life pretty radically. And the best is, I insist, each time I use it less and less without closing my mind!!

@joeszymborski, just don’t get to the point that it becomes a crutch, where you feel you need it to function (haha, i don’t know if you know who the band Slightly Stoopid is, but I sometimes wonder what they would do if they had to play a show in Singapore). I’ve met people like that and it’s a bummer. Maybe I am playing devil’s advocate, but could it be that this is only in your mind, and that if you stopped smoking, you’d be just as good if not better at all these things?

I’m not trying to rile you, I’m just trying to offer another point of view. For me, it was the opposite, it was quitting weed which had a positive impact on my life.

Weed has made me a much more open minded and positive person. I’v found beauty in things that i never would have previous to smoking weed. It has helped me to analyze my own flaws, which in doing so has made me a far more productive person. As a musician, it has easily been the most beneficial tool in creating new music. It has allowed me, along with many other people I know, to form a greater appreciate for life. Everything is better in moderation, but the overall negative perception that the public has for smoking weed is ridiculous. It is a far better drug (both mentally and physicallly) for you than the “accepted” highs of alcohol and tobacco.The fact that you can be thrown in jail because you want to smoke a joint and hang out with friends blows my mind. Just don’t let yourself become dependent on it in order to function..with that being said, the sativa high is much more beneficial to me than the indica high. It’s almost like 2 different drugs (for me at least).

Weed is by far the most important and essential tool I’ve had to completely make some complete 180 degree changes in my life. I seek constant self-improvement, self-realization and always keep an open-mind. I’m growing and learning every single day and weed has allowed me to explore the deepest recesses of my soul and my mind. So many people are caught up in the system that society has forced us into. If only I could open their eyes. I will willingly should I ever notice them willing and able to do so.

I agree that moderation is a good thing, but I’ve been smoking about a hit of sativa once every half hour to an hour(when not working) and the ONLY negative side effect that I can perceive is occasional short term memory loss, which I combat in a variety of ways (post it’s, to do lists, reminders on my phone and notes in my book) and that I’m spending more than I would like to on greens.

Other than that it has enabled me to function in my life at a high level of efficiency, mixed with boundless creativity and limitless constant wordless realization within my mind.

The single hit an hour is a very good strategy I’ve found, especially if you want to stay creative and PRODUCTIVE for long periods of time. Rather than getting super stoned one time off an entire bowl for about an hour or two (more if tolerance is low of course) you end up getting comfortably medicated for hours. A bowl can even last you an entire day if you burn it right.

I see a few of you feel the same about smoking in general. I’d love to chat one on one with a few of the more open minded individuals and exchange knowledge and wisdom if you see that as an amazing task. :) let me know

Like I said I’ve been writing an illustration in little black books or a while and I’m teaming with creative ideas I just can’t wait to share with open minded people.

@joeszymborski, at the end of limitless he creates one last pill that allows him to think the way he was thinking while on it, without having to take any more. But i understand where your coming from my mind is every where but were I need it, but I’ve found if i constantly shake my leg (and by shake I mean rapidly move it up and down while I’m seated) I seem to focus much better

Have you noticed a difference in the vividness of your dreams? As in, a dulling effect? One of the few negative effects of marijuana, and one I rarely see spoken of, is that it kills your dreams, literally. It has to do with the way it stimulates Melatonin, which is usually released during dream stages of sleep, if I remember correctly.

I smoked weed for years, and I thoroughly enjoy the wonderful epiphanies it gave me. But recently I’ve stopped for a number of reasons, primarily because I can’t help but suspect that the act of dreaming during sleep plays some important role in maintaining and cultivating a healthy mental state. I think I might choose to smoke a small bit of marijuana on a rare occasion, for purposes of meditation and contemplation, but I certainly am enjoying the increasing vividness and memorability of my dreams.

@joeszymborski, Thanks a lot. Now any time I’m trying to just get blazed and watch Bill & Ted I’m going to think “That fucking asshole is probably watching engineering lectures online just for fun.” and then feel guilty when I see all the Doritos dust on my shirt.
