Dark Circles (from pot)
    #4014400 - 04/04/05 10:30 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I constantly have dark circles and i'm not sure why. I'd very much like to get rid of them as I can imagine dark circles aren't all that attractive. When I get a shitty night's sleep, I almost look like I have black eyes. I'm a very heavy marijuana smoker. I smoke at least a couple bowls a day during the week (usually more) and sometimes my crew will blaze an ounce easily on a friday/saturday night. Everyone I 'm hanging out has dark circles too.

Its pretty obvious from what i've just said that the reason I have dark circles is from smoking massive amounts of pot on the weekend, but it could be something else. For example, the people I chill with have the same eating habits as I do. Does anyone else get dark circles and think its from weed?

Well I cant see any science behind it, but I'm not going to say no. It could be caused by allergies, or maybe you just don't get a good enough nights sleep. I smoke weed daily and I don't have any darkness under my eyes, nor does anyone I usually smoke with. Not sure man, maybe ask your doctor if you feel comfortable letting him/her know you burn it. I don't think they can release that information anyways.

I get about 8 hours a night. I don't wake up to an alarm clock or anything and I heard that a good night's sleep is however many hours you are sleeping for without being woken up by anything, but I could be a light sleeper or need more than 8 hours a night. It's more likely my eating habits though. I eat junk all day every day. I get only 3 or 4 good, nutritious meals a week. I think my body is deprived of nutrition. I should take vitamins or something. Thanks for giving me some assurance that it isn't my toking.  :wink:  5 shroomz

Kwik, I'm not sure about the kind of sleep you get when you're stoned, but I know that when you are drunk, your body skips over the REM stages of sleep, and when you wake up in the morning, you are still tired because your body lacks the REM stage, and will try to get it back. So technically, you could be over tired without knowing it. Try going to sleep sober, and see if that does anything.

Not sure if Marijuana affects different sleep cycles though, just a hunch, because I know that a lot of heavy smokers have this problem.

FirstAvailable,
i was just throwing that out there. mine get red to the nth degree. sometimes i get dark around the eyes some days, its prolly b/c of lack of sleep and what not or maybe, i figured, it was correllated with redness, increased blood flow, who knows what. Some people say that  the redness is an allergic type reaction, which i somewhat believe b/c good eyedrops are typically "eye allergy relief" ones. But i digress, its good that your eyes dont get red. Maybe your not allergic to pot  :smile:  infact, new thread!

I would be willing to bet it's from not eating healthy, or not drinking enough water. Smoking that much weed has got to dehydrate the crap outta you. Try drinking a bunch of water or fruit juice for awhile. Smoking so much weed might be making your eyes black, but you could probably find other ways to make it better other than slowing down on the smoke.

naw, if chronic masturbation made your eyes black, I'd be eligible for affirmative action.

:edit: lol, ^

i get red eyes, red around my eyes and...

when i go to sleep high, i wake up tired
when i go to sleep drunk, i wake up groggy
when i go to sleep sober, i wake up pretty sharp and happy

won't hurt to take a few nights of sobriety and test it out, and also maybe start tryin some eye moisturizer when u smoke

if your like me, and by your avatar you look like me (20 yr old college partier) i'd say try these things and start dosin on some brita water :smile: water is magic

I would say ask one of your girl, gay or metrosexual friends and they can probably hook you up with a product that will get rid of those dark circles pretty quick.

Concealer or some light blush might be key here to covering up these 'dark circles'.

Dark circles can be caused by lack of meat in your diet.

You could also have a case of 'anemia'.

Well I smoke chronically and drink almost every chance I get also. I get the rings and it doesn't look to cool to show up for work all drugged out looking with bedroom eyes so what I found has helped is taking some vaseline I think mine is fortified with Vit E and Aloe and I apply it to the dark circles under my eyes all the way up to the bottom lid. That shit seems to make them alot less noticeable but they are definatley still there if you are looking for them. Also I think its a combination of malnurishment, lack of good sleep cycle (Weed\alcohol is thought to disrupt REM patterns not sure if this is true could anyone chime in?)and maybe even lack of excersize and just generally living an unhealthy life style and using a heavy regiment of drugs.

Anemia?! I'll look that up lol. There's no way i'm using moisturizer when I smoke, but I'm gonna start eating healthy. My cholestoral might be through the roof anyway. My diet = McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, McDonalds, McDonalds. I work at a chinese restaurant and eat that shit every day, that can't be healthy. SoK, what college do you go to?
