So the other night i smoked weed with a few of my friends in his basement. I used to smoke weed a lot more often but i hadnt for a couple months. After the second bowl, I started to feel like you do when you stand up to fast. My vision started fading and it got worse and worse and worse until i could literally see nothing. Once my friends figured out i wasnt faking they walked me over to a couch, bumping into everything on the way. I sat there for about a minute and finally vision started returning.

It was weird because i was pretty mentally in it the entire time, i was just completely blind. It didnt happen to anyone else. Apparently i turned crazy pale as if there was literaly no blood anywhere above my neck. My friend even said my eyes looked bloodless whatever tha means.

Any thoughts?
Is It Normal?

You did not actually go blind. What happened your brain received a big burst of THC and not enough oxygen. If you didnt pass out you were close to it. This happens maybe once or twice in your life I wouldnt worry about it. If it starts happening more frequently then youll have to stop smoking weed sorry

That happened to me once also but I was not smoking weed I was stroking my johnson.

This happened to me last night.
ive never had it happen to me before either, i've been smoking weed for over a year now and last night i went out for a joint - i was completely sober and hadn't had any smoke that day. I was ill with a cold and chest infection aswell.. after i smoked the joint i felt like i was going to faint, my vision had big black spots in it, and my hearing was muffled.. soon i couldnt see anything at all - i told my boyfriend (who i was with at the time) and he helped me back to my house..
basically its perfectly normal for this to happen, it just means that you need more sugar because of the THC in the weed.

ALRIGHT

so this happened to me 2 days ago and since then I've been spooked. I've done a fair amount of research and discovered that our blindness (and my fainting (and smashing my head against a wall)) has been caused by not smoking for awhile (one week) then smoking mass quantities (a blunt of chron) on an empty stomach (the pb and j I made later that night was the best of my life). As far as I'm concerned it was just the perfect storm of being stoned out of my mind and not getting enough food or O2.

Anyone else experence ringing ears?

Ok well i've gotten a fair amount of comments so i figure i'll give a brief follow-up:

I have smoked pleeeeeeeenty of pot since this, basically daily in the summer, and it has had no effect on me other than getting me really high. No more blindness. And I don't have lung cancer or aids either.

Did you eat that day?? cuz that happend to me one time and i didnt eat that day

This has happened to me once. Right after smoking a bowl, while me and my friend were going for a walk I gradually went blind and she had to lead me to the house then my vision slowly came back after a few minutes. Was fucked ahaha and caught me off guard since I smoke regularly

I went snowboarding yesterday and I smoked some weed. I got really nauseous and figured it was because I hadn't eaten anything like all day. So I'm getting some chips with nacho cheese from the cashier when my vision totally blurs out so I have to just hold my hand out for my change and feel around for my food. I thought I was gonna pass out right in front of the cashier lol. But after sitting down, drinking some water, and eating I felt better after a while.

i can handle weed. I used to smoke just about every day. I NEVER had anything like this happen before. I rarely even got that high. This was different.

I think you should lay off the shit before it kills you. Did you know every time you smoke a joint it is the equivalent of smoking a pack of cigarettes? Your lungs are probably hammered.

i do not think that the weed did this to you,and weed deff. cant kill you, it doesnt cause cancer, actually it has several medicinal purposes, i can say that one time though my eyes were so dry and red that i couldnt open my eyes maybe thats what happened

Man the same thing happened to me not long ago. I was pretty freaked out while it was happening (and I was alone).. being high as fuck and all. However, now that I think back about it I believe what probably happened was that I was lacking oxygen. Smoking bowls back to back and holding that smoke in is definitely going to deprive you of oxygen. Not only that but the air you get has a lot of smoke and other shit in it. Your friends saying you were pale seem to confirm that theory, little oxygen binding to hemoglobin giving you the appearance of being pale.

I ended up just sitting down and chilling out, when I opened my eyes at first it was really dim but it cleared up pretty fast.

Yeah, I can't imagine that its good for you. If you are losing vision you probably are having some blood loss in your brain and that could really fuck you up. I'd suggest making sure you are breathing more oxygen between hits and if it happens go lie down for a bit.

OMG!! That happened to me TODAY!!! The first time i smoked weed was on monday and i really didn't feel anything just dizzy and sleppy. So i wanted to try it the second time so i got a blunt and a joint. I went home and i smoked a little more than half of the blunt and then i went to my room getting ready to take a shower and all of the sudden i felt really dizzy and i went blind! I couldn't see anything and i totally freaked out cause i was alone. so i made my way to the my bed just touching aound and i laid down then it went away and i could see again!! But everything looked really weird! It was awesome! And im not really sure why this happened. But now I'm scared to smoke my joint! haha

once i fainted and i couldn't see, even though my eyes were open, i have no idea what caused it, i felt like my legs were like jelly, then i couldn't feel my legs at all, i started to lose my vision, fell over then it took a few seconds and i could see again

THIS JUST HAPPENED TO ME YESTERDAY!
ive been freaking out cuz i had no idea what the heck happened to me. i didnt know if it was laced or what but none of my friends had that happen. but i was at amc about to see avatar (imax 3d) until we found out it was sold out... gay. and then everything started going white and i went outside to sit down and i had to stop cuz i couldnt see where i was going so i backed up and held onto some railing and all of a sudden my back started hurting and i had some how bent backwards over the railing like completely.. i think i passed out for like 30 seconds. and then i could see silhouettes of things and my friend came outside to check on me and gave me water and then my vision started coming back. but i was thinking normal during all of this, i didnt even feel that high, it just came out of no where
Comment Hidden (show)
I agree with the people who have said something about blood sugar. This same thing happened to me earlier this week. At first I was freaked out and thought about not smoking again but then i realized why it happened. Me and my pals were hanging out in his garage and we had just smoked multiple blunts it was really hot already and then I noticed that i suddenly felt like shit and my vision was fading. well anyways i went inside and sat down in the cool a/c and drank some water, my vision returned instantly. Thinking back on it I hadnt had anything to eat all day except for one banana. SO judging from all these responses i would say its normal and you should never smoke alot on an empty stomach

Oh wow ! same thinq happen to me yesturday while smoking!

okay we were hanging out smokinq a blunt. Then i see white spots . At this time im not worring about it because i seen it befor but im thinking its gonna go away but it doesnt it just gets worser and worser . So at this time my friend is holding me and its just went black . Within a minute it came back slowly .After I felt dizzy for About 15 minutes i was walking and it felf if my eyes were somewhat dropping. After that i was feeling normal , but then i was sick i throw up a couple of times .

The same thing happens to me if i smoke and i don't eat..i get lightheaded and cannot see. i've passed out before and i've thrown up. sorry for being explicit. My friends whole family smoked and i had an episode where i got sick,
and her aunt told me im probably hypoglycemic.
make sure you eat before you smoke.

Do your research before you start pulling random facts out of your as$. Marijuana may be worse for you per oz. than tobacco. but have you ever heard of anyone smoking 25 cigarette size joints in one day?....didnt think so. Also have to factor in vaporizers and bongs that filter out the bad stuff. Youll be the one lying in a hospital dying of skin cancer from being outside too much before i die from lung cancer because of pot.

Well that's what you get when you handle things that you know isn't right. I wouldn't blame the drugs or anthing else but yourself. I'm not saying it's easy to stop or even you should stop but think it's normal that you go blind using that stuff.

Well, I've never done it before so i don't know, so in order to not make this post of mine completely worthless, my only advice to you is this: If you're going to continue doing it, by all means. No one can stop you and it is your own choice. But anyways, if something like that keeps on continuing, my guess would be to see a doctor or stop doing it. Because I would imagine, doing stuff like that and if you keep experiencing this so-called blindness...it is definitely not healthy for your body so you should then probably stop.

One time I was having an interview to work at as a assistant for a hotel manager and I had smoked weed the previously the night before. While in the interview a bunch of smoke poured out of my mouth and I coughed a little. If she wasn't looking right directly at me at that moment she probably wouldn't have figured it out, but yeah that was really embarressing. About the whole going blind thing I think it's possible. I've went blind for about two minutes when I stood up too fast. It probably has something to do with lack of oxygen to the brain.

Dude, smoking the stuff once made me fit out on the floor when i got up too quickly. Eather that or the fact i hadn't eaten in 2 days and I had sun stoke. Every one thought i was taking the p*ss but I loved it. I've been smoking like it ever since to see if it happends again.

It has to do with not getting any blood to the blood vessels that connect to your eyes. It is a blood sugar thing. I don't know the medical reasons related to it, I just know because it is what my body does. It happens to me when I stand up (too fast). I walk around bumping into shit. It is kinda fun except when I feel like I am going to pass out/throw up. Someone else said it, make sure you eat something before you smoke and it should be a good amount of protien.

Okay so I've smoked weed a fair few times, I started in september and on average once a week since then. But just recently I've started having this happen to me too! It's happened 5 times now the last one just yesterday. It only lasts less than a minute though and I just feel really weak and I start to fall over. Sitting down makes it stop but is there any way to make it stop happening altogether?

IT HAPPENED TO ME, TOO.

I have to smoke MASS amounts of weed in one sitting, but it's happened to me three times so far. I've heard a few mentionings over the internet about it being linked to a quick, low drop in blood pressure, but I'm not sure how valid that is.

My vision gets sparkling bright, like a white-yellow. I squint. I can only make out sillouhettes of things. I can hear voices fine, and I'm mentally there, but I hear a fuzzing in my ears. I start sweating something fierce, also. I'm not sure if I get pale or not, I'm olive complected so nobody has said anything. But I know I was clammy. It lasts around 5-7 minutes for me.

I've had it where I saw a big bright tunnel blinding the middle of my field of vision and a ton of twinkles radiating from everything, as well as pinkish noise everywhere, but I've never actually gone blind from weed. During a heavy stoning session I sometimes have trouble opening my eyes, but I don't go blind.

yea man that happened to me too...i usually smoked alot but i took a break for about 3 weeks and so wen i blazed with my friends, we all had our own nug to smoke so on my second nug..i was sitting down at the time and its started to get hot so i stood up and all the sudden my eyes became almost blind but i cud still see an outline of my friend's body but everything around was like black and red as if i closed my eyes so i sat down and it slowly became normal...but then i went outside into the sun and the light made everything go white so that was trippy too..its like third eye stuff

this shit exactly happened to me last sunday at a rebelution concert. I've always smoked A LOT but I guess I've never been so stoned at a concert, so after the first 2 opening acts came out, there was a 45 minute gap until rebelution would come. In that time, I was standing in the crowd and my legs starting shaking and immediatly, my vision was closing in. Everything turned black, I could like hear EVERYONE and EVERYTHING but I couldn't see anything. I didn't fait or pass out but I probably would have if my friend didn't take me out of the crowd, then the security guards made me sit down and as soon as I sat down for a few minutes, my vision slowly came back, dim at first then clear. I was so amazed this had happened. I've never experienced something like this and was sure as hell scared. I thought this had happened cause i didn't eat anything that day but I went to a reggae concert again the following week and smoked my self out of course (thinking it wouldn't happen again) but sure enough, My legs started become shaky and I IMMEDIATELY knew what was going to happen since I had felt the effects a week before so I went to the bathroom and chilled out for a few minutes. I really can't believe getting so stoned can cause this to happen for some people. I'm sure it's the combination of standing for awhile and the loud music all getting to you at once but i really hate this effect it's having on me now. Never before just lately.

This happened to me last night i've smoked weed everyday for the last 2 or 3 years if not everyday then with only a few days gap. I was smoking about a gram of quite nice skunk in a blunt with my mate standing up leaning out my window and i was feeling really stoned by the time it was finished. I then moved from the window and suddenly felt really weird, it felt like the first time i got high, but i also couldnt see properly my vision was blurred and i couldnt hear my mate properly. So i stumbled out my room i could barely walk i was bumping into walls and there was a collection of white dots building in the centre of my vision as i was stumbling downstairs. It was getting worse as i was getting closer to my living room and then i got there and slumped onto the couch and for a second i felt the same blurred vision, collection of white dots, and bad hearing but then after about a minute i was feeling better and within 5 mins was completely fine... WTF im wondering if the weed was laced it was off a random guy but even if it was would it produce these random effects? i had eaten breakfast, dinner and a burger at 11:00 and smoked it at about 12:00 so it cant be low sugar. Also i was feeling a stomach ache about 2 hours after when i was trying to go to sleep havn't smoked a joint since then but im going to tonight hopefully wont happen again

This has happened to me twice. I started smoking about a year ago with the guy I'm now dating. The first time it happened was a few weeks ago. We were at a party and I smoked way too much. We had all gone down to the kitchen to go out and smoke some more when all of a sudden my ears started ringing real loud and a lot of tiny colored dots filled my vision and I couldn't see. I passed out and they put me on the couch. I was ok in a few minutes, although i was high as fucking fuck.

The next time it happened was a few days ago, and I was out smoking with my boyfriend. It was a normal sized joint for us and I was fine. After we had smoked, I wanted some food so I was waiting in line and all of a sudden I saw these tiny dots again. I kept saying how the dots were so loud and the bigger they got, the louder the ringing in my ears got. Eventually, I went blind and couldn't see. I had to grab onto my boyfriend, give him my money so he could pay for me, and have him lead me back to my seat. After a few minutes of eating and sitting, I was fine.

We've decided I need to smoke a little less now and maybe eat and drink a little more. That seems to solve the problem.

This happened to me before but also happened to me in school today! I smoked only a tiny bit before school this morning. I walked to school in like 15 minutes and was late so i had to go sign in at the office. after signing in we have to line up in the hallway. As i was standing along the wall with 3 other ppl I could feel my vision slowly start to go and turn redish. I tried to just stand normally but once i went completely blind for like 30 seconds i ended up falling down the wall. I stood up and it slowly went away. luckily no teachers down the hall said anything to me

This same thing happened to me. Good to hear I'm not alone! Sounds like dehydration and lack of oxygen were the main problems.

Well, what all you guys are saying isn't that very helpful. Because I have had that happen at least 5 times in the past 3 months, first time. I was smoking 5 bowls of a portable bong, i started going blind, so i sat down. Then after I went deaf, tried standing up, & passed out and fell on some one. They had told me there was acid in the weed, those are the similar effects of acid, & every one gets different effects to it. Even last night it had happened again and my mom knows I smoke weed, but doesn't get why I did it again. & they were all from smoking a gram, or alittle more or less. I don't get why it happened, I just get scared every time..

Oh and while I'm saying all of this, let me just say DO NOT SMOKE THE FAKE SHIT!! It is NOT real weed. It is nothing but chemicals. There's no weed actually even in it. It's just a designer drug that is designed to make you feel the same way as if you were to smoke weak ass weed. There's a reason it's sold at gas stations and is legal. ITS NOT REAL! I prefer Dro because it's good shit. Just make sure the person you're getting it from isn't chemicallizing it or adding anything to it. Be careful, and KNOW your dealer. Dro all the way! That is all(:

Are you sure it wasn't contaminated with something else? If you smoke next time, make sure that it's of good quality.

ive been doing tons of research into this, and lots more paying attention to my own body, and i have came to the conclusion that if you smoke a bunch of weed for a long time (at least a year) like smoking every day, eventually the blood vessels in your brain actually become shrunken and its harder for the blood to flow to your brain, which can cause this to happen, this happened to me today, it felt like my head was about to implode, what happened was i was with some former friends (we were friends up until this happened) and they all knew i quit weed because it started giving me panic attacks and it felt like i was gonna have a heart attack every time i smoke anymore, but they made me smoke anyways today because they wanted to be "assholes" as they put it, so i took 2 super huge rips off the glass pipe, the first one got me stoned, the second one fucked my world. after taking the second one i started feeling like i was panicing, so i went outside and walked around in a circle for like 30 minutes straight, and i kept getting more and more fucked up, then my ex girlfriend showed up and i started talking to her, and with each word i said my vision whited out more and more and my hearing got quieter and quieter until i couldnt see at all, and i felt nautious and could barely breathe too and thought i was gonna pass out, then i went and laid down on the floor for a couple hours until i felt well enough to walk home. it was a terrible experience.

I was taking regular bong hits and it was like 100 degrees outside (I was in the shop). And all of a sudden when I was walking back to the house everything got bright outside and then when I was inside, everything started going black black. And I thought there was something wrong and I almost passed out. And I've been smoking for almost 3 years and nothing like this has ever happened before.

"SHOOTING THE MOON".OK OK OK , I smoke alot of cheese about 6oz every 2 months of real high quality. Not leaf material. It happens almost everytime I take a huge hit of New thc laden buds. Or oil. Its just like people said. To much thc for our brain to process. Your Hearing goes pings and pongs or muffled. Almost like a 56k dial up modem makes. Your eyes peripheral vision shuts off making you feel blind and you get all hot and sweaty. Me and my buddy Both experienced this on headband oils,cheese. WE CALL IT "SHOOTING THE MOON"

Hi, i am 20 years old,

I smoked weed for the first time 5 days ago. i had also had a few beers. while i was sitting down i started to see dots. so i decided to go to the bathroom. as i stood up it felt like i lost all blood to my head. i went blind and my ears were ringing bad. i sat down i just concentrated on my breathing. this lasted for 1-2 minutes. i got back up and went back to my friends they were all fine and didn't have this problem. i don't have any heart problems or blood pressure problems.

It is now 5 days later and i still have a ringing in my ears. i asked an online doctor who said "The half life of some of the metabolites of marijuana is 20 hrs, however some of the break down products can have a half life of 10 to 13 days."

"The prolonged half life is the reason that you are still experiencing some of the symptoms."

Although i don't feel this is the cause. feel like the cause was the lack of oxygen to my brain.

i am still quite worried and have booked an appointment with the doctor.

I was wondering if anyone else had had this and if so how long does the ringing last. I hope i haven't given my self Tinnitus.

i had some pot last year and smoked it all in one sitting and a little after i had smoked it i went to lay down to enjoy the feeling of it then i fell asleep and woke up with numb cheeks jaw and my mouth i could still feel it all but it was numb and felt rather strange to me but then 3 hours later the high wore off,, so i told my one uncle about it and he said it was probably laced with some cocaine and thats what everyone else says so i guess that feeling was from the cocaine.

This happened to me two nights ago. All my friends thought I was faking it. I was in line waiting to see Diiv and Japandroids in Toronto, and I had to leave the line to go find a drink. I was walking by myself at 10pm in a sketchy part of Toronto. It finally got so bad that I started bumping into people. I knew if I didn't sit down I would pass out, and puke. I had to sit down up against some disgusting wall, and people were looking at me like I was on something crazy. After a while I cooled out, and walked back. I had to go find some food. (5 Guys Burgers and Fries was the most incredible thing in the world). I hadn't eaten anything, and barely drank anything that day. It's definitely from having an empty stomach and being dehydrated. My advice is if you are going to smoke, know that you will have access to food and water.

I was at the mall 2 days ago STONED out of my mind while on an empty stomach. Prior to being at the mall, i smoked a crazy amount of cigarettes. I've been a daily smoker for years (pot)but really cut down over the past few months because of school and such. I was at Teavana in the mall and as I was waiting for the woman to weigh the tea I was about to purchase, everything started to grey out (as if you stood up too fast) but I couldn't get out of that feeling. Soon enough I was COMPLETELY blind and as I attempted to hand her the money, (in the TOTAL opposite direction i'm sure, not that I could see)I started losing all balance, bumping into everything, knocking a whole bunch of stuff over. Everyone in the store started running over to me asking me if I was okay, attempting to help me..(which sounded like gibberish /elongated words) then all the sudden I PASSED OUT. Black out. I don't remember collapsing though. All I remember is waking up on the floor. I can imagine me laying there for 30 seconds maybe. I woke up, felt fine, convinced them I was fine. Which was true besides the whole crazed confusion thing.. haha. Everyone definitely thought I was on heroin. dammit. very embarrassing but as I've read, this is normal due to the lack of oxygen and nutrients. Smoking a shit ton of cigarettes doesn't help either. & Oh yeah! I didn't drink anything that day besides coffee. This adds up. haha hope this story made you feel less crazy, if not normal! :)

OK! So this has happened to me quite a bit and frequentlyish. I smoke every single day. I have been for 4 years and all of a sudden 3 months ago maybe this started happening. It'd always be when I've already been standing for a good 20 mins or more. BUT this HAS occurred while I was already seated. I would feel the lightheadedness, following the black distorting vision and muffled hearing. And an excessive amount of sweating. Like full on cold sweat going on. My legs would begin to feel like jello if I continue to stand and eventually I would collapse. I'd always have to be sitting and resting my head in order to relieve myself. This has been scaring the hell out of me for awhile and I was hoping so bad that I didn't have to quit smoking. I was starting to think it was from cigs but I also am really bad at eating needed meals daily and Pssh hardly any water a day. So would everyone else agree it's just because we don't eat and drink water? Or could it be more serious? That's all I'm trying to figure out

Okay so this has happened to me twice, both times were after waking up and on an empty stomach, but the first time was with a brownie and the second time was smoking a bowl. I saw like white and everything turned so bright when I lost my vision and it lasted about 2 minutes after I sat down and got some water. I also felt like I was going to throw up before and then it happened. And after I say down and relaxed, my ears were ringing for a couple minutes. I think in my particular situation it's from like the intensity of the thc because of not having eaten anything recently. Sort of like how alcohol is more intense on an empty stomach, I think it might be the same for weed. I have been trying to find the cause of this to avoid it again because it's like the worst feeling ever and the first time I thought I was tripping from being laced but then I realized I just had too much thc for my body to handle. If any one know like a scientific reason for this I would love to know it please.

Great experience like this today! My friend told me about some blue dream that he'd picked up recently so I decided I'd smoke some after college with him and one other friend. About 10 mins after finishing smoking I was fully feeling the effects (probably most stoned I've ever been). Anyway, we decided to walk to the shops to get some food and a drink, once I was in the shop I started feeling really uncomfortable standing up to pay and couldn't wait to get out to sit down. After paying, my vision started to become severely blurred. I really needed to get out and sit down, I start walking out when a lady approaches me asking if I can read maps waving a book in my face (very distressing at the time), this is when my vision completely went, all I could see was white, after a couple of awkward seconds I just walked away from this woman completely blind. I managed to make it towards the door when I dropped the packet of biscuits I had just bought, so for around 30 seconds I was feeling around the shop floor still totally blind, trying to pick up my food. I finally found my biscuits and managed to feel my way out of the shop, once outside I sat down until my vision returned around a minute late. It was the most fucked up I've ever been from smoking weed, although fairly uncomfortable I had a great time and would love to experience something like this again.

I, like many others also had an empty stomach so I guess that could be the reason for the loss of vision.

I have been around all manner of pot smokers over the years who smoked all manner of pot.
I have never seen or heard of anyone who experienced a loss of vision smoking unadulterated pot.
You may consider that drawing in so much smoke that you rob your body of access to oxygen could cause this type of reaction. Sip, don't gulp.
It is also possible that some underlying medical condition was triggered. Low blood sugar or something like that.

Because I have seen literally thousands of people smoking pot over the past 50 years and never heard of this I do not believe it is a common or normal reaction. Normal would be something that happens to most people on a regular basis.

Therefore, it would be wise to make sure you are not diabetic or borderline diabetic or that you have some other condition that is aggravated by inhaling too deeply or being exposed to the active ingredients in either the smoke produced or the actual components of pot. It it turns out that you are unlucky enough to have a potential for some unhealthy reaction then you need to discontinue use.

On the other hand, pot is an unregulated substance and some people who grow or distribute it think it is a good idea to add chemicals to make it "stronger"

Over the years there have been things like insecticides and defoliating products like PARAQUAT that have been found in pot. Sometimes these things potentially produce varying levels of health danger to anyone exposed with some being more sensitive than others. There have even been cases of certain users developing a tolerance to some adulterant and getting to the point where normal pot is just not good any more because they are addicted to some poison. Unfortunately, if a person who has never been exposed to the toxic adulterant sits in with a group of adulterant addicts, that person may experience some major negative impact like going blind, having a heart attack, or death.

Be careful where you get your weed and sip, don't gulp.

Something similar has happened to me the last few times I've consumed MDMA, except not only do I go blind , I also go deaf and my limbs begin to shake (sometimes I shake so bad I fall)... When my hearing comes back everything sounds so far away and muffled. I took some clonazepam and it helped a little by stopping some of the effects caused by the drug... I've decided to quit consuming as this is bad for your heart.

Were fucked. Apparently our trees restrict the fuck out of blood flow to our brains, to the point of having the equivalent of someone's brain with dementia. Not sure if its all these new herbs they've been engineering, but the evidence is a bit shocking. Here's one- doesn't let me link the fu king shit but , Marijuana Use Affects Bloodflow in Brain Even After Abstenice - Science daily.... Check it out. Also , and these are but a few recent ones, but (are you wrecking you brain? Chilling pictures reveal shockibg effects of alchol, ciggs, and caffeine of the mind) dailymail.co.UK also gave us a study done, and its pretty fucked considering I've been smoking weed since elementary and now am getting these same feelings like everyone's described except mine felt like the equivalent of a hundred fuckin microdots....

This has nothing to do with not being capable of handling it. It's happened to me twice yet most days I'm more of a warrior than my friends who will all fall asleep from being high before I do. At first I was thinking it was dehydration or something but I read somewhere that it's related to not having enough oxygen in your body when a large amount of thc enters your head.

My 2nd experience was weirder than the first... Maybe because I was standing on my feet with no supporting structures anywhere around me while the first time I was leaning on a wall... It starts off as little white lights... Which started to grow in numbers until eventually my entire vision was blocked (and it wasn't a pitch black blindness, it was like a grey kind of colour)... As soon as my vision goes so does all my co-ordination. When I was standing with no support my friend literally had to grab me and hold me up or I'd have fallen straight on my ass... Exact same symptoms show up with me, but it usually goes away after about a minute or 2

Its called hypotension. Low blood pressure not enough blood or oxygen got to your brain. Same thing as when yoy stand up too fast. Same thing happened to me after a couple bong hits. Dehydration is another cause of this. Completely normal.

I've had this happen to me twice, and it was always after I smoked weed with the same guy. Whatever he was smoking I think did it, so it's not you, it's the kind of weed you smoked. Mine was half decent regs, I never smoke regs anymore and ever since I haven't had that happen.

ive smoked L skins of buddha cheese before and this didnt happen and its obviously not due to me smoking a large amount over a few years people smoke it for deacades

Weed makes you feel relaxed but thats just an illusion. Try not smoking because your health is at risk.

Yeah... you have to be pretty stupid to keep doing something that makes you go blind. Either you're smoking some bad sh*t or your body has a bad reaction to the regular stuff. Go get drunk or whack off instead!
