What effect does weed have on your dreams?
    #3737096 - 02/05/05 09:34 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I would like to really get into lucid dreaming. The main thing is, I am a habitual pot smoker. I'm willing to maybe ease up on the pot smoking in trade for lucid dreaming, but do you feel that weed can make you gain lucidity easier? I ask, because a lot of time I remember my dreams, and it seems like I have half-influence over them. So what effect does weed have on your dreams?

Not everyone is the same but you should abstain from pot if you want to dream naturally.

Marijuana will decrease your dream recall, especially when you smoke at nite. This is because thc raises the level of melatonin in your blood. But it doesn't raise it enough to cause REM rebound. This is when you are deprived of Rapid Eye Movement sleep (the dreaming stage of sleep) and your body makes up for it by going into a period of prolonged REM sleep. Thus, you have very vivid and long dreams during REM rebound. When people overdose on melatonin they achieve REM rebound.

But marijuana doesn't usually cause REM rebound. I suppose if you were to smoke a large amount right before bed it could be possible. But weed isn't really practical for dream enhancement. It makes me not remember my dreams.

If you'd like to enhance your dreaming, there are many ways to do so without drugs. For example, sleep for 5-6 hours. Then get up for an hour or so. Then go back to sleep for however long you want. This seems to help some people. There are dozens of other ways too that are better than any substance.

Stephen LaBerge has written a few very insightful books on lucid dreaming. Some of the physiological info is very interesting.

You know, I've never actually found a difference between going to bed stoned or not.

For dreams that is.

If I use weed, say, everyday for a week, I will not remember my dreams- I go to sleep and wake up relaxed, with just blackness in between. However, when I haven't smoked for a month, then suddenly get stoned and sleep, I tend to have more vivid dreams that I do indeed remember.

I doubt pot will help you with lucid dreaming, but look into plants that are known for affecting sleep and dreaming, such as Calea or Vervain.

Yeah, I'll probably lay off the pot for learning lucid dreaming.  I figure that it's worth the trade!  :smile:

When I cut down from smoking amazing weed every day to smoking about once a week, I had a hell of a lot of trouble sleeping, but I had probably two lucid dreams a week. These days (5 or 6 months later) that has decreased to about one a month, but it's a big improvement on when I was smoking weed a lot more. I would get maybe one a year.

I smoke every day and still get lucid dreams most nights.  The nights I can sleep, that is.

Do you ever get flying/extreme jumping dreams?  I had one a while ago where I was jumping hundreds of feet into the air and cartwheeling around the city.  The morning dew clung to all the trees and made them look mystical.  I could balance on a branch like in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.  Those flying dreams are my favorite.  I think I may have played too much Morrowind.

I never noticed a change, not even a gradual change I used to smoke a ton at night. From time to time I can't remember my dreams, which is odd. And lately I haven't been smoking due to a cold and haven't remembered shit. Again, that's probably just from my cold.

Lots of friends that I know have the same weed that I do, smoke the same amount, and have the same eating patterns and are basically like me, and say they absolutely do not remember a single dream. I've always supposed that it's kind of hit and miss for individuals.

Good luck on cutting down though. Lucid dreaming's fucking fun. I got so good at it, but became a slacker and lost all progress that I worked so hard to achieve. So good luck and don't procrastinate like I did. :smirk:

you shouldn't smoke the whole day,
at least 5-6 hours before bed.
otherwise you wont remember your dreams
thats what happens to me and lotsa people i know
if you smoke cigs,
smoke before bed,that gives you vivid dreams.
anyways tobacco kills you

If you want to lucid dream:

1) Stop smoking weed. I have insane dreams when I'm off it. I think most people are the same.

2) Keep a journal by your bedside and write down everything you remember from your dreams. It will help you recognize that you are dreaming.

no, weed helps me dream....re read my last post. i wake up alot during sleep. when i smoke pot before i go to bed, it helps me stay asleep longer, and to spend more time dreaming. i always dream, even when i only get 30 minute of sleep. but with pot i am able to stay asleep longer, and spend more time in the dream state.

Cannabis interferes with natural dream life, particularly memories of dreams. The lack of dream life may well have long-lasting effects on one's total mental health.

Maybe you should stop, clean out and switch to Passion Flower.
