Not getting as high even after T break

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by MooseMusic, Jan 23, 2014.

  1. Alright, so recently I've been getting some fire (friends around me always get really stoned) and I'm not getting as stoned as I used to get. AND THIS WAS AFTER A T BREAK! I always smoke get a little buzz then it lasts like 1 hour and it's gone, and that's from smoking a couple grams. I don't know what to do anymore It's like I have a permanent tolerance. Please help :<

  2. how long was your t break

    it was about 1 week +a couple days
  4. were you a heavy smoker before that? maybe that has something to do with it. might need a longer break or try smoking using different utensils
  5. I usually smoked about an eighth a week And this also happened after a month T break also. I mainly smoke bong and the odd joint (once or twice every 2 weeks) and I just lost hope :/
  6. It might be the weed.....your Tollerence might be at different levels then your friends, even with the tbreak
    Try a different strains
  7. Everytime I pickup It's different. and my friends smoke more often than I do so I don't think that's it. maybe I just can't get high anymore. maybe I'm permafried
  8. Well That sucks bro. Whenever I get Reggie,it doesn't really get me high anymore, I still get a buzz and all, but its not a good high. I usuley smoke a bowl of hygrade weed with a sweet and that will do the trick

    My niece was telling me the other day how weed sucks for her also, we get from the same guy some times. Well she got some Reggie from a friend (differnt weed dealer) and she got really high off of that and so I thought about that when I read your post

    Of course your already smoking good shit, so I don't know...smoke more lol.
    4real tho, Just be careful. At this stage, when weed doesn't cut it anymore, a lot of people start looking for stronger stuff to replace the weed buzz, hence the bullshit gateway theory.

    And it might be your diet!    :confused_2:  Get comfy,  I''ll be putting a whole bunch of brand new medical science into "stoner" terms.
    First off, HOW THC gets you high! You inhale the smoke, it goes in your lungs, then into your blood. Now unlike a LOT of compounds, THC can sneak past what is called the "blood-brain barrier". It's a way of protecting your brain from nasty chemicals. So THC does its sneaking into your brain and there in a part of your brain called the hippocampus (which has nothing to do with hippos or schools), the THC activates CB1 receptors. These receptors send the message "I am high on THC" into the brain cells of the hippocampus and you are STONED!  :smoking:
    Now those lovely little CB1 receptors do a LOT of different jobs in your body, besides getting you stoned, they fight depression and cancer, and about a thousand other things!  So how the heck does what you are eating fit in to all this? :confused:
    It goes back to this 2011 PubMed study-
    Nutritional omega-3 deficiency abolishes endocannabinoid-mediated neuronal functions.    (abst – 2011) 
    Now the important part of the study is contained in one sentence (Lucky you, you don't have to read the whole study! :laughing:  )
    [SIZE=11pt]"In n-3-deficient mice, presynaptic cannabinoid CB(1) receptors (CB(1)Rs) normally responding to endocannabinoids were uncoupled from their effector G(i/o) proteins."     [/SIZE]
    So, in mice that never got enough Omega 3, the CB1 receptors that normally are activated by compounds that your body makes (that act like THC), were left unattached to the next piece, the G i/o receptor protein.  Kind of like if a speaker has a loose wire- the message doesn't get through!
    Now a lack of Omega 3 is VERY common in the average American diet- in the young adult's fast-food-based diet, Omega 3 is rare as hen's teeth! Here's some readable articles on Omega. FYI - everything they say about depression in the articles below, holds true for getting high. They are both controlled by endocannabinoids that you make (or THC) activating CB1 receptors in the hippocampus.
    O-6 to O-3 ratio- Discover the Shocking Reality That Ruins Your Health More than You Think!
    How too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3 is making us sick
    Now after you read those, you will understand a bit about the Omega3/ Omega 6 imbalance.  The cooking oils in your kitchen are often filled with Omega 6, which we get far too much of as modern Americans.  This chart will help you figure out which oils to avoid. Interestingly, hemp seed oil has the proper balance of Omega 3 to Omega 6 that humans need for optimal health!  (Cannabis- ya gotta love it! :love: )
    Good Oils and Fatty Substances
    If you have been eating a diet low in Omega 3, you likely have a bunch of receptors that are not hooked up, and are "duds". Good news is that your body is always making new CB1 receptors! So by eating a diet high in Omega 3, eventually, enough "duds" will be replaced to start having your high improve! :yay:  
    Bad news, it takes time to replace the duds. Again, using depression as a convenient yard stick-
    How Long Before Fish Oil Works on Depression to Lift Your Mood?
    And you males have a genetic disadvantage when it comes to Omega 3. Women are better able to make use of the short-chain "veggie" forms of Omega 3, (flax oil, etc.), than men. You guys do better with the "fish oil" type of Omega 3. Fortunately, both are cheap- Walmart usually has one or the other on sale ($10 or so). Puritan's Pride mail order is even cheaper, but you have to wait a week for it.
    By taking Omega 3 every day, you build up the number of working CB1 receptors in your brain, and that will lead to a better high! :smoking:
    Bet you never thought learning about nutrition could be the key to getting higher! :laughing:
  10. holy shiet. seems legit. gonna start taking fish oil to help.

    Just remember, it takes about a month to replace enough "dud" CB1s to start to notice a difference! And the imbalance of O3/O6, affects a lot of other health issues!   I'm pairing these up, a study and an article, so you guys can get a clue just how important Omega 3 is!
    Eating More Foods Rich in Omega-3s May Lower Alzheimer's Risk: Study;_ylt=AsJH9r54fmLseRBNGzifY4is0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNpODM1NDMyBG1pdAMEcGtnAzc3MDA5OTYwLTk4YTctMzE4OC04OGVmLTk2YWZlZjRmYzY5YQRwb3MDOARzZWMDbG5fTGF0ZXN0TmV3c19nYWwEdmVyAzdlMTIxNGMxLTk0ZDMtMTFlMS1iZGJmLWM1NTU5OGQ0ZjhmMg--;_ylv=3

    Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important for Developing Fetuses and Infants
    Omega -3 fatty acids prevent the medical complications of obesity, study suggests
    Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids may mutually benefit both obesity and osteoporosis.
    And that is ALL tied into the CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system and Omega 3!  :eek:
    And one more dietary tip connected to this. While you are picking up the fish oil, grab some NATURAL vitamin E - D ALPHA TOCOPHEROL  (NOT the DL!). If you are low on vitamin E, it affects your Omega 3 levels!  (I use this study because the title is in plain English- once you know that "PUFA" is "Sci-Speak" for the Omegas.)
    Vitamin E deficiency decreases long-chain PUFA in zebrafish (Danio rerio).
    To learn more about the Omega 3/ CB1 connection, PM me your email, or check out the bottom of my sig and email me. I'll send you back more research on cannabis, the endocannabinoid system, and so much more! (Prepare for total information overload! :laughing:  )
