    Psychosis and weed 
    #1
    Hello I last done MDMA 5 years ago and continued to smoke weed until 2 years ago then quit that because it sent me psychotic. Well I blame the weed but im unsure. It lasted about 1 month. For the past 2 years Ive been completely free from all drugs. My symptoms havent got any better since I last done MDMA 5 years ago. Dp/dr, low sex drive, lack of feelings, ocd and anxiety. While I was smoking weed it took away most of the symptoms. But I also ended up going psychotic so its scared me off and am worried about getting back in that situation. I hoped not smoking for a couple years would of made me feel a bit better but I still feel exactly the same as I have for the past 5 years. Ive been eating very good food and exercising. What are your thoughts on smoking weed again? I was smoking a lot probably 7 grams per day. I would really appreciate any replies. Thank you

    Weed takes away symptoms of mental illness temporarily because it's a depressant. That's the same thing as saying being an alcoholic cures depression. Completely fallacious and it's like treating a gunshot wound by lighting yourself on fire. It numbs EVERYTHING, it doesn't just reduce psychotic symptoms (which it then makes worse during/after the comedown, by the way).

    Yeah, you may just have a mental illness.

    I'd consult a professional and try to figure that one out.

    Good luck brother.

    Cannabis can trigger underlying mental illness in people who are more susceptible. If it led to a psychotic episode before then it probably isn't the best idea. I doubt that smoking small amounts is going to have severe consequences, but it is likely that you pick up the habit again gradually until it becomes problematic. Maybe in small amounts on weekends with friends or in a comfortable environment

    There was a period where I was heavily using dissociatives doing shit like dropping acid every day for a couple months and weed made me really paranoid for a couple years after but it went away.

    A lot of times when people cross the paranoia/psychosis barrier with weed that's it, they just quit or continue bugging out every time they smoke.
