Edible vs smoking weed and HPPD


Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone, 

I hope you are all doing well.  About 7 months ago I was going through some difficult emotional times and got prescribed medical marijuana for a condition that I have.  I tried 4 edible attempts over 1 month and did notice an uptick in my visual disturbances and some anxiety.  After the last attempt I decided to leave the gummies be and I have since been sober from everything and am again going through some difficult stressful things.  All positive but very exhausting; my wife and I just had our second daughter and I am on my 4th year of mathematics PhD studies.  The idea of smoking cannabis is now very appealing and I was wondering if anyone had experience with positive responses from smoking but negative from edibles.  I don't think the steps back that I took with the edibles were very significant, however the possibility of making things far worse scares me. Also, I am a member of Alcoholics Anonymous and most of the feedback I get from them makes it seem like I am putting a gun to my head if I even think about smoking weed.  I love AA but they can be a bit much sometimes.  Anyway, thanks as always for your your input. 

Take Care,

Nick

I can't see smoking being anything but bad for you if you had a bad reaction to edibles. If you do go ahead, my only suggestion is to go for a strain that is very high in CBD and low in THC.

I have smoked weed a few times post-hppd and it's always been a horrible experience. I get the allure though!

Thanks Jay. As always I value your opinion and advice.  I will keep you guys posted about this, although if it's successful I hesitate to share that information for fear of it backfiring for someone else.  I have smoked weed many times post HPPD with some drawbacks but for me, it never produced lasting crazy results.  I have found sometimes regressing back to being a pot head for a few weeks can actually be beneficial for my mental health.  However, it has been a number of years since such an experience.  Who knows, I'm just trying to get by and be reasonably happy.  I wish you the best.
