Twitching/childhood Tourettes when smoking weed?

Discussion in 'Marijuana Consumption Q&A' started by mads, Feb 9, 2014.

  1. When I was younger, around 12-13 I was on a lot of depression meds and one of them made me twitch and jolt around like crazy. It stopped when I finally stopped taking them, but now whenever I smoke weed, my legs and arms are constantly twitching/jumping around. My limbs feel very silly feeling and ticklish while it happens. It looks like I'm tweaking out. I don't mind it, but does this happen to anyone else?

  2. Especially sucks when I'm cuddling with my guy while blazed and I'm just twitching around everywhere.  :cry:
  3. it happens when youre a weed noob and subsides with experience

    . it has nothing do with your past med intake. cannabis does that. not all strains do though

    I've tourettes and OCD diagnosed when I was 10 and if I have some good sativa I will start tweaking like when I had very bad torrets twitches. I can control it on my own now but it does come out often

    That happened to me the first few times i smoked. Completely normal, especially if you're new to smoking.
  7. Yeah like everyone else is saying that happened to me a lot too for like the first 5 times I smoked. My friend would always call me twitch haha
  8. Yeah, I was diagnosed with nerve damage and I have a full body twitch that happens rarely. Definitely have a higher chance of it happening when I smoke a heavy sativa and get really blitzed. Perhaps avoid those types of strains if the twitching is really that problematic. Luckily for me, once I twitch two or three times, it normally subsides for a while.
    It's a tolerance thing and a strain thing.
    Indicas never did that to me. Hyrbids "can". Full Sativas are usually the culprit.
