    /Cannibis-induced pschosis, anyone?

    At one stage a few years back I was diagnosed with a cannabis - induced psychosis.

    Wasn't very pleasant. At its peak I witnessed Satan in my television telling me in some distorted voice to "Kill your family and kill yourself!"

    Despite what has been said, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders can be effectively treated in a vast majority of cases This small hallucination was nothing compared to some of my paranoid delusions around the time.with the use of the "new" atypical anti-psychotic medications, such as Risperidone, Seroquel and Zyprexa. In some rare, severe cases a psychotic may not respond completely to the drugs, however they usually elicit some signs of improvement.

    I think the word I'm trying to find to describe the symptoms of schizophrenia and psychosis is not "illusion", rather delusions (false beliefs, generally of a paranoid nature) and hallucinations (generally auditory - hearing voices, sometimes visual).

    And yes it is true, cannabis has a well known scientific link with psychotic disorders, and in some cases chronic schitzophrenia.

    I've met 4 people so far who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia triggered from cannabis use, 2 of them were regular smokers, the other 2 it was their first smoke!

    Whether their illness would have developed otherwise is unknown, and will never really be known.

    However, it's a known fact that some people just don't mix well with marijuana, and others can smoke cones til the cows come home every day for the rest of their couch ridden nacho chewin jerry springer watchin sorry assed lives.

    Anyway, that's my opinion on the subject.

    Well said Hood! I remember in college a kid that seemed a little "off" if you will, and after smoking pot he like "never came back"....I believe that the answer at least to this regard is medical marijuana. Under the supervision of a doctor, this herb drug can really do wonders for people with many ailments but again UNDER DR SUPERVISION!!!

    I personally, tho an addict in recovery myself, never really like pot. It made me lethargic, unmotivated, and I felt quite dumb. I'm not sure but it seems to do that to most people actually!

    There is no "perfect drug"...abstinence, sobriety, and finding natural highs in life I believe offer a much higher and better quality of life!

    Thanks for sharing Hood!

    EXCELLENT POINT, BABYDOLL!

    Your comments are so right on the mark!

    I found this conversation between you, Babydoll, and you, Hood, to be extremely perceptive and eloquent. Unfortunately, I'm not able to add anything to the conversation, as I've not had similar experiences. However, I'm sure there are many here who have.

    Thanks for sharing, both of you.

    Mike had this experience

    My son Mike had something like this. He was really bummed out. Since he was a hunter, and had guns, they took the rifles and mopst of the habndguns away after they put him on meds. Not sure what he took. We were doing the "tough love" stance at the time. I was able to retrieve a few of his equipment eventually.

    Psychosis

    I was put on anti-psychotics at one time. They actually gave me schizophrenic symptoms!!! E.G. Hearing voices, seeing actual hallucinations, Ect.

    I know I wasent schitzo but the doc at the mental hosp. put me on them because she found out I took LSD and smoked pot. These pills fucked me up for a long time afterwords and I fealt like a zombie for months.

    It was hell, I had no personality, no thought or fealing. I even think some of the effects might still be with me today. I used to be a very talkitive person, normal in most respects if not somewhat depressed, after that I still find it hard to really be outgoing or express myself unless I know the people very well. But in my head I feal like me again. I guess you could call that withdrawn??? Its not fun.

    It took me eating a hell of alot of LSD before I really fealt like myself again, odd since anti-psychotics are usually sopposed to work the other way around.

    Psychosis

    Honestly when im high around a large crowd of people I tend to be slightly schizophrenic, depending on the situation, current state of health, etc.

    I hear voices say clear and disctint things that are not there, see flashes or blurbs or people walk past who are not there, hear someone's words twisted inside my head to make a different sentence, have a strange sense of fear and forboding, and often feel as though everyone around me is watching me, staring at me in a negative fashion.

    This goes beyond normal marijuana paranoia. I have smoked for about 6 years straight, often high quality strains and such. For about 2 years I was blazing 3 grams a day, personally. I have stopped smoking and havent smoked in about 2 months.

    The above symptoms are not pleasant, and ended up preventing me from partying while high (it diddnt start till about a year ago, slight at first, and more noticeable towards the end of the year).

    It hasnt really gotten in the way of my life or anything, nor is it noticeable to others around me. Still, whenever I get really really blazed, those symptoms occur. Ruins my high.

    Im thinking a good 10-12 months completely abstinant from marijuana will do the job (of removing it that is).

    Yea Jaz I'd like to think we all "come back" from this, but God only knows....

    Of course the solution is to not use it in the first place without medical prescription and supervision, but if that was the case and it actually worked there we wouldnt have a problem or be on a site like this to talk about it right?

    Prayers to you all!
