Cannabis questions

Hi guys.

I was just curious, Do you notice any affects that cannabis has on you or do you think it has had any bad effects on you? like people say that it makes you have memory loss and stuff like that. Only asking because there was a guy who used to live next door to me who was a dealer. I think he used to smoke weed alot himself because whenever he got angry he was really violent. I dunno if that happens to many though.

thanks
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    I've never actualy met anyone that becomes violent after a smoke ...maybe he's just a miserable git full stop.
    Memeory ...short term memory realy gets effected by weed ...but thats part of the buzz ...i often wander in the kitchen and can't remember why ...oh yes i'm making a brew ...but only whilst under the influence. I consider myself to have a realy good memory.
    It can make you forgetfull and bone idle when hammering it.
    Thing with cannabis i find is ...some time it acts as a stimulant ...sometimes a relaxant ...sometimes both at the same time which is strange and at the mnoment beyond sciences understanding.
    I've learnt over the years how to use the stuff i believe. Very small ammounts get me busy ...working hard ...being meticulous in what i'm doing ...enjoying what i'm doing. Small ammpounts are also brill as a pain killer for my bad back.
    One thing it never did help me with is spelling and typing.

    Cannabis per se is not known to do this, however it IS known to exacerbate existing psychosis and other mental health problems, of which violence and irritability may be a symptom. If he is as heavily involved as you suggest, there may be other substance use involved as well.

    Some people can do it and be fine, others go a bit mental. If in doubt, dont do it.

    It used to make me lethargic and certainly fucked up my memory.
    And after a few years it made me paranoid so I knocked it on the head.

    It may not even be other substances, it may just be the market. If he is heavily involved he may not trust many people, he may constantly fear arrest, he may occasionally buy too much on tick...etc.

    You may have noticed i manage to do that without having a smoke!

    ah i love smoking weed but ive got to the stage where im more spaced out when im not on it...my mind goes blank and my memory is awful....its hard to get the balance of having an occasional smoke without getting to the stage where u need it to not feel edgy, aggrivated and stressed....but peoples personality has a major role to play in how you react to smoking it.....different people have more addictive personalities etc.....

    id like to kick it on the head.....but then again.....
