Seuizre with bongs?!

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Cheecho, Aug 1, 2011.

  1. I've had three seizures in my life, scary I know. Each one has came from way too big of a bong rip. Everyone said I start coughing a bit then just go into a full on seizure. All I can remember each time is blacking out. Does anyone know wtf is wrong with me?

    First occasion: Had a energy drink before smoking (I dont drink soda or anything with caffeine and I never have energy drinks)

    Second: I rolled the night before and got 2 hours of sleep

    Third: I rolled the and actually had 2 red bulls the night before but still got a great amount of sleep

    Pleeease Help
  2. So maybe its lack of sleep and energy drinks that dont go too well with your body?

    Just don't pack yourself too big of a bong and you should be fine. But if they continue i would go to a docter, but i don't think you can blame your seizures on weed. :). Each body reacts differently to different things i guess.
  3. I've had a seizure too after smoking. However, I drank a little bit that night, but also I only smoked a moderate amount. I was very tired though, so in my case I'm guessing it was just too much stress on my system.

    All I can say is don't mix shit. If you're gonna roll, wait a few days and make sure you're well rested before you smoke. Cut back on energy drinks maybe. I'm not sure. I don't know exactly what caused mine, or yours for that matter, but just give your body a rest for a couple of days and cut back on smoking and everything for a little while. That's what I did, and I've smoked dozens of times since then and have had no seizures since.
  4. I'm with above post^^

    You seem to be low on energy and also filling yourself with shite before doing the rips. Other than that, each person does indeed respond differently. So instead of taking giant bong rips, tone it down a little and maybe you won't have a seizure.
  5. What a terrible buzzkill that must have been for your smoking buddies! Btw, can we talk about rolling? Rolled once, passed out, felt like hell in the morning (dehydrated). Maybe try drinking more water, and no more energy drinks. I've been told by doctors that caffeine makes you piss out a lot of nutrients your body should've used, and soda contributes to dehydration.
  6. THC drastically lowers hydration and blood sugar levels. Do you have diabetes? If so, that may be the case. Dehydration and low blood sugar levels have been known to cause seizures

    My tip is to at least 250mL of water before (1 glass). More is better, but don't drown your system. It's also helpful to keep a bottle of water with you while you smoke to keep you hydrated and to ease a sore throat after toking if you have one. A choclate bar or 2 before you smoke is also helpful. Just remember, eating/drinking during your session is too late. Make sure you are well hydrated and have a high blood sugar level beforehand.

  7. Exactly what do you mean by seizure? Are you just passing out and your friends are over exaggerating your coughing fit or are you an epileptic?

    I don't know why, but from personal experience, I think cannabis does something to lower the seizure threshold. And if your predisposed to seizures, then it can trigger them.

    Just like a hangover lowers the seizure threshold, or to much stimulants, etc
  9. I have heard of this every once in a while, and it usually does either come back to sleep or energy drinks.

    Im sure you know its not the weed, its the lack of sleep. Caffeine kills your high, especially when its as much as a energy drink.
  10. I know you don't want to believe cannabis could do anything bad. But for some people with seizure disorders, it can trigger them. Every individual that has seizures are unique from everyone elses seizures, while cannabis might help one persons seizures, it might trigger one in another person.

    Even something like to much stress can trigger a seizure in people predisposed to seizures.
  11. So no more rolling, no more energy drinks, stay hydrated, drink water and maybe a snack before smoking. Cause honestly I can remember being so tired and low on energy on all occasions. Also Kenjamin, everyone said it was a full on seizure. Like one you'd see in a movie haha but thanks for all the help everyone!
