Cannabis makes you clever
    #4581246 - 08/25/05 09:42 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

When i smoke weed i get cleverer. I can understand everything around me, so much so it's like a slight paranoia. I look into things more and understand how they come about.

Yet when i get stoned with others, they seem to be "dumb" in a nice away as is possible in this context. Does weed dramatically effect every person differently or is it down to IQ and how clever you are.

It's also interesting being stoned with people and out of the corner of your eye monitoring everyones body language and understanding their subconscious.

Am i writing this because i'm off my trolley or is there some sense in this somewhere? I'm not too sure, please help.

I feel the same way when I get stoned.

I find it that if your usually a philosophical thinker pot enhances your ability to comprehend to a greater extent...

yeah, same with me. i get a greater understanding of things when i think about them while high. the only problem is that because i'm high i usually forget about what i just realized like half an hour later. it's a win/lose situation, except for when i remember them, then it's win/win

I definately see an improvement in my ability to perceive other's actions, and just a general increase in thought.

But that's why I keep a diary of all "important" stoned thoughts, me and my two stoned friends from college also use a tape recorder to record are stoned discussions. Some VERY deep stuff.

I always wanted to keep track of my thoughts when I'm high, because they do seem to make a lot of sense. I can understand the craziest of things if I think about them. A few weeks ago, I smoked with my best friend and my girlfriend was with us. The whole time I was extremely paranoid that they were a lot smarter than I was and something was going on that I couldn't quite understand. Just something about the two of them seemed above me. A week or so later, my girlfriend broke up with me and hooked up with my best friend. It turns out that they were talking about doing it for a little while, too. I guess I sort of sensed it.

All of you that agree that when you get stoned you get smarter are you intelligent in everyday life? As in to say are you relatively smart? It's hard to say i know but would you percieve yourself to be very clever?

I believe i sometimes think outside the box and look more into things but am not going to say i'm very clever or anything.

Interesting to hear i am not the only one  :thumbup:

I wouldn't say you get smarter. You become a better observer and can pick up on things that your sober mind would miss. I would say it is:
expanded consciousness. Not smarter, not better, just more consciousness, just different. Although on the whole I am in an expanded state, I make many mistakes working on Math or something else that requires a close eye to detail.

Don't take all your stoned ideas too seriously either. Ideas are just that. Those on nitrous find the secret of the universe in: TEETH.

Hey man, that's definitely true.  I wouldn't have passed my senior year of highschool if not for bud.  A) for the boredom factor, B) it stopped the rest of my mind and allowed me to think about and do what I had to do.  Also, pulled a 102.5 in accounting as a year average. 

One factor though...bud is what allows me to have clear open-minded highs.  Mids just fuck me up, good warm body vibes though.

Cannabis is wonderful!  :smirk: :bigweed:

I just get real quite. Mushrooms make me very clever. I always have the perfect thing to say when im tripping. But its usually just me with my mouth hanging open in awe.

If your capacity to think is increased at low doses, consider taking a weeks break to let your tolerance go down, then take a series of gravity/bong hits all at once untill you cant smoke anymore. lay down in a dark room by yourself and really begin to understand cannabis true power.

Sounds intriguing, i get a little aprehensive about having any more hits as my chest often POUNDS heavily, especially when i'm having my crazy thaughts  :crazy:

Oh and a quick something you lot who have replied may find interesting:

I was just chatting to a clever girl and she explained that perhaps weed makes you more content and have less worries and things on your mind and when this occurs you're not having selfish thaughts and are more open to what is actually going on around you. This would explain being able to pick up on what's going on, this seems very feasible, what do you all think?

Sounds like avoiding things. Like this person seeks cannabis as an escape. That is generally looked down upon and I would have to agree. Take pot to enhance the way you are, not to dull and lessen your thoughts. I think more with cannabis. But not in front of the TV! :stoned:

now adays when I smoke and get high high high my mind seems to open up and operate much smoother. as you said, you understand things more clearly.

i also find i am WAY more creative and artistic when im high. i can draw better(more original ideas) and I am insane on my guitar when I'm high as well.

nice to know there is someone else out there. most my freinds turn into braindead retards when they smoke.

I dont think its the weed that does this just the effect of any drug at one point or time or forever. I know when I did meth and stayed up for 3 days at a time and really high I would actually see things for what they really were. I would have better vocabulary and was easier to understand. I even was told I was a much smoother talker and had alot more smarts than I usualy did.

I get really good at math when Im high, it's really weird.. I also am better at thinking about philosophical issues.
otherwise I just get dumber, like a few weeks ago at a festival I bought some french fries, but I really didn't know what to do with them until a friend said 5 minutes later: "are you not gonna eat those? Im hungry"
