    Weed/LSD 
    #1
    Whenever I smoke marijuana, I get very very negative. I'm planning on taking lsd in a few days and I'm very excited. But I'm worried I will have a bad trip based on how I act when I'm high.
    Will I have a bad trip simply because I'm negative when I'm high?

    People disagree with me, and I'm fine with that, but never smoke weed when your tripping. That can easily cause a bad trip, and it's happened to me repeatedly. In fact, if weed has that effect on you, why bother with it at all? I quit smoking weed 40 years ago and I've had a happy, productive life. You can, too.

    Weed has a unique ability to make you feel kinda crappy at times. I find smoking in unchallenging environments is key, by myself listening to music, etc. It can cause odd self-consciousness and paranoia and painful introspection- useful at times but sometimes overwhelming.

    But no, LSD doesn't have that kind of effect. I was concerned about a similar thing the first time I dropped acid and I had an absolute mind-fucking blast I advise you not to smoke weed, or if you do make it 15% of what you would normally smoke, LSD really synergises and accentuates a lot of weeds effect and vice-fucking-versa.

    Have fun

    Lsd will likely amplify whatever underlying emotions you have at the time you take it so just be aware of set and setting.

    Marijuana has the ability to cause an intense amount of paranoia and negative thinking, especially in some people. In my opinion, LSD and many other psychedelics are less likely to cause this simply from their effects than marijuana, as long as you don't smoke weed while on them (smoking weed on psychedelics is a big cause of people going from nice trips to terrifying ones). The most important thing with psychedelics like LSD is your set and setting. Your set refers to your state of mind at the time; you should take it when you're feeling good and don't have any pressing concerns that might bother you during the trip. Setting refers to the situation you're in during the trip. You should be in a controlled environment, some place you feel safe and comfortable. You should be with people you trust, a friend or two, not a big group, and not with people you don't know or trust (particularly your first time). You should make sure nothing unexpected is likely to happen, for example, people dropping by unexpectedly, parents coming home (if you are at someone's parents' house), etc. Unexpected stresses can cause a trip to get very difficult. Having great music to listen to is wonderful, it provides a great focus for the trip and can send you on some wonderful mental voyages.

    Remember that, if things get frightening, it's just a drug and it will wear off. In my early trips I would often feel frightened or even regretful of taking it for a period of time but then I would get past it and enjoy a great trip. In particular, the come-up period can be intense and off-putting, because the transition from sober to tripping can be jarring, it's a big shift. LSD is pretty easy on the body and is a good choice for that reason, but some people report uncomfortable feelings during the come-up even with LSD. If you feel bad at the beginning, just remember that that's normal. If you ride it out and don't give in to anxiety and decide your trip is going to be bad, it will pass once the drug reaches full effect. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to do it, LSD is wonderful, I love how it makes me feel and think and it produces quite a bit of euphoria for me. Don't go into it expecting anything in particular, just go with it.

    Note that I like weed, but I still am more apt to experience anxiety on it than on most psychedelics, LSD in particular feels very friendly to me.

    Not necessarily. Just take a low dose and don't smoke while you're tripping.

    Yep, heed the advice above from everyone and don't smoke while tripping. I learned the hard way

    I am curious about this though. I've not had LSD in many years but back when I did (8 or so years ago when I was 16/17) I smoked once while on LSD and had a pretty profound experience.

    A little paranoid at times but I just attributed that to my awkward nature and shyness. I didn't allow it to consume me and I had an enjoyable experience.

    I felt comforted knowing that all of my friends and even my friend's uncle who was with us knew (and we're okay with) I was tripping.

    Set and setting played a pretty big factor I think but I also wonder if there are differing factors to specifically cannabis and LSD.

    I'm looking to try LSD again soon and I am now a daily medical cannabis user. I vape mostly.

    I've recently had a good experience with mushrooms and I used my cannabis during that with no I'll effect. I did find it very difficult to focus on loading the vape and then taking large breaths. I would get lost in thought loops and constantly forget that I'm holding my bong and what I'm attempting to do with it haha

    I often smoke weed during trips, it's just that I don't recommend it to people for their first time, or if they have issues with anxiety and weed. Marijuana definitely has a tendency to cause anxiety/paranoia, so adding it in can be too much. It can also be great though.

    I love the input of weed into most drug experiences, especially psychedelics or dissociatives, but it can make trips unmanageable if you're not prepared. Especially important if weed alone is difficult. For me, I don't get anxious from weed anymore, or at least its minor and easily dealt with. I have been effected in that manner in the past and have been more cautious at those points.

    I don't smoke weed all that often because I would get random paranoia on some high and it would ruin weed greatly for me. But LSD is a totally different drug (obviously) and when I did it the first time I felt anxious too. I had an amazing trip and so far it probably was one of my best experiences ever. But everyone is different, my friend (who smokes weed almost everyday) had a couple bad trips on LSD..

    When it comes to bad trips on LSD, for me and people I know who take it only experience a bad trip 1 out of every 12 times which is pretty low.

    I can't speak for you but good luck!

    I like to separate "bad trip" from "difficult experience". The term bad trip has a very terrifying connotation, from people who experience traumatizing trips and have lasting negative consequences (which does happen to some people). And then there are difficult experiences, which can be really terrifying at the time, but which you come down from and just see them as something that was unpleasant but is now over, no harm done, and you maybe even learned something and came out of it better off. I've never had a "bad trip" out of hundreds of trips over the last 15 years, I've never felt like a trip hurt me or made my life worse. I have, however, had quite a few difficult experiences. The come-ups of many of my early trips were characterized by feelings of regret and anxiety and fear, "why did I do this to myself", "I wish I would just feel normal again", "I'll never take drugs again if I can just feel normal again". But then those feelings would pass, and I'd have great trips. Or occasionally I felt anxious to some degree the whole trip, and the experience kinda sucked, but when I came down I felt happy to feel sober again, and after a while I decided to trip again and it was fine. I have even had experiences where I believed I had broken my brain and was insane forever (a common delusion during difficult and powerful trips), or was about to die. I even contemplated killing myself on one trip, believing for a time that if the trip reached its conclusion I would cease to exist forever but if I died I would interrupt the trip and be born again as something else. I was able to realize that that was a bad idea and didn't do it (obviously), and that trip ended up being one of my most profound and important trips.

    Some people have those kinds of experiences and decide they are damaged and develop anxiety problems and PTSD, and some people have those kinds of experiences and decide that it was just a drug experience and now it's over, and look for the good in the trip, and learn something, and don't experience negative after-effects. My point is that it's very important how you choose to frame difficult psychedelic experiences in your mind. With enough tripping it's inevitable you'll experience difficult times, but that's just a part of tripping, and if you realize that and keep it in mind, you should be fine even if you have moments where in those moments, you don't believe you're going to be fine.

    Cannabis or hash and LSD is hands down by far the BEST combination EVER!

    I used to love smoking herb while on a high dose of LSD but I also would take LSD on its own when I took low or moderate doses of it.

    But I understand if people are not into this drug combination as it's not for everyone.

    Very well put, Xorkoth.

    I've never had a bad trip. I've had difficult experiences but ussually these are more based on set and setting and have been easy to overcome once the substance has run its course or even as quickly as changing my location or ambient atmosphere

    This seems to qualify for any psychedelics
