    I have been smoking for several years, around 3 or 4, but habitual smoking for only two years.

    I can only get schwag/low mids or $300/oz beasters where I live, so I get the lethargic comedown from the relatively crappy weed I get most of the time here. With beasters it's not as bad but there hasn't been any around lately. Anyways, the way to get rid of the hazy comedown is to take one day off. When I take a full day off, the next morning I wake up I feel completely sober/refreshed, and my next smoke is way more intense.

    One thing I am thankful has not happened to me is memory problems when not high. In fact, most of the time when I am high I have no problems with that anymore either due to tolerance. I still feel as sharp as ever.

    To give you an idea of my weed consumption, an ounce will rarely last me longer than a week.

    A friend of mine who smokes far less than me and only started smoking months ago has been describing the memory problems he's having (even when not high) and I'm just glad it doesn't affect me that way. I'd probably quit if I had to sit there like a frothing retard thinking every time I tried to remember something.
  2. ive been smoking almost every day for about a year and a half.. i do take an occasional break or take a day off when i have things to do, but when im smokin everyday i dont really have trouble remembering things.. honestly, i tend to second guess myself on whether or not im spelling shit right or my grammar is correct but very rarely does that happen, its all in your head man! ;)
  3. I have these memory problems sometimes, and I hate to admit they're linked to cannabis. Sometimes I can be thinking of something, then 2 seconds later I try to remember it, but the harder I try the faster the memory fades. I have found, however, that tobacco helps me a lot with my memory, among other things.
  4. I never forget a ahhhh...oooh what was the question
  5. Smoking causes some short term memory loss. Some people overcome it, other's don't. It's not permanent; it primarily affects memories recorded while you're stoned.
  6. I had a horrible memory before I started smoking, so the memory loss didn't hurt me too much.

  7. I think you may still have that "memory"and use marijuana as some type of an escape to forget about it.

    Not trying to be rude but that sounds like the case.

    I have memory loss but its from a illness I have not from my marijuana use,infact Marijuana helps with the memory loss.

    Marijuana use spereates nuerons which are the fibers that attach brain cells, the more nuerons the faster you can recall something and the more knowledge you can store in your short term memory, it doesnt affect memory just slows the ability to think or thinking process. If you take breaks nuerons will come back together
  9. I don't even know where to start with this post...why do people insist on spreading total garbage? First of all, neurons ARE brain cells, you dolt. Second, no long term structural changes to neurons are caused by cannabis use.

    Please, PLEASE do not spread things you are not sure of. I'm not sure where you got this or if you're just making it up, but it's just wrong.
  10. My bad, I was talking about the fiber like components of a neuron
  11. the diagram will show you what I am talking about, the ends contain the material that transmits information, I know its from wikipedia but the site is monitored by reputable people who fix most inaccurate information within an hour
  12. I also didnt say they caused long term structual change, they WILL repair themselves if given short amounts of time without cannabis use.
  13. Folks, I've been tokin' for over 30 years and I don't have any significant memory loss that I'm aware of. It doesn't help that I'm older than dirt though. They say most people start losing some memory at about 35 years old. If I do have memory problems it would be from all the chemicals I took when I was a teen (the 70's were not kind to me), just happy smoke now!:smoking: Everything in moderation will get you there..
  14. neurones are seperated by synapses and no, they do not move as chemical activity changes in the brain.
    i only have problems recalling some things when stoned, like i watched pineapple express and i have no idea what happened.
    yes i got blazed yesterday with friends and remember it all
