    It takes me 0.1-0.2 of potent indica based kush to get me high for about 2-3 hours. I smoke only at night, so one toke from the pipe or bong is enough for a very profound high.

    My tolerance is borderline low, and it's so low that my high is manifested with pronounced bouts of paranoia/anxiety, then it diminishes after an hour into a relaxed, introspective and euphoric high.

    I would say that the paranoia/anxiety happens because I'm not comfortable to begin with when I smoke inside the house, which is why I prefer to smoke outside on a comfortable chair to view the stars above me and do breathing exercises to get rid of the uneasiness. The paranoia/anxiety may also have something to do with introducing THC into my body again after 5 months. I never gotten paranoid/anxious before when I smoked weed, but now I do.. I suppose my body is just getting familiar with the effects again and I just need to remain calm and carefree. The paranoia/anxiety becomes worsened in an environment I'm not familiar with.. like (smoking at night around the desert, smoking with people I don't know very well, being around people when I'm high and my eyes are bloodshot, etc) I'm guessing that I need to become pragmatic in these situations when I'm high, so I can become used to the situations and remain at ease and not worry about a single thing (depending on the circumstances) Of course no one is going to a job interview while high, and certainly no one is going to be getting high when the police are around!. :D

    Other than the paranoia/anxiety, I enjoy weed for it's wonderful mind-opening ability to view current situations as they are, and being able to intricately connect these complex problems together to help resolve the issues so I am comfortable afterwards. I become very philosophical when I smoke now, and I think that's why I enjoy smoking very little to achieve the desired effect's weed can induce.

    When I used to smoke weed, I would feel the analgesic effect (pain relief), euphoria, laughter, and everything that I thought was slightly boring, became more interesting, but I never got in-depth with my subconscious, I was too stoned for any introspection to take place. Ever since I quit for 5 months and started smoking again, my mind goes in many directions at once, and it almost seems as if I cannot control everything that I'm thinking about, I have a habit of thinking of many things at once, and it just hinders my ability to focus on one thing at a time; I may just need to practice handling my thought processes better when I'm sober and high.
  2. you as a person might have also changed within those 5 months
    you just don't knowW
  3. Yeah, I am in my early 20's, I suppose my brain is going through changes. But I have to admit, I enjoy weed more for the introspective/philosophical aspect. Hopefully, the paranoia/anxiety will soon diminish and will become a thing of the past. I know it's necessary to become paranoid in certain situations, but I want to make sure I don't become paranoid in situations where I don't need to be.
  4. I also have this problem, This sudden and very real 'paranoia',...The only way to overcome this is to have a more comfortable place to smoke ( outside if your a nature lover like me ), Put all worries behind you, Breathe slowly and deeply and toke away. Try to stare at the stars and will start feeling an utter animal-istic connection to the cosmos...
  5. There is a sticky on this and it's a pretty common side effect. I once had my paranoia induced by eating Chinese food before smoking. Diet can be a contributing factor as well as setting. Just tell yourself nobody has ever died from herb and tell your anxiety to get the heck out of there...
