I went blind! What happened?
    #8811830 - 08/22/08 05:41 PM (10 years, 1 month ago)

This is the second time this has happened, but I gotta say I somewhat enjoyed it. After taking my 6th hit off a huge blunt I began to feel really light headed. All the gray colors around me merged and covered my vision, I was completely blind and out of this world. My friends were calling me but I just stood there in the darkness. I asked for a seat because I was afraid that I would fall, and I was also feeling very light headed. Then slowly I started seeing black silhouettes everywhere on a blue background which were the people at the party. My vision came back shortly after but I gotta say that this was pretty awesome, except for the fear in my head that I would be blind forever.

When your brain gets low on oxygen that can happen.  Especially mixed with weed smoking, vision going gray is usually an oxygen issue.

yup....I also suggest that it was a lack of oxygen.

I have once seen a kid pass out before when we were hot boxing a blunt in a bathroom....And i have had my lips turn blue from taking several gravity bong hits in a row.

Remember to breathe dude, i know sometimes i have to tell my self to take a few big deep breathes especially if i just smoked a strong indica and all im doing is sitting or chilling out.

how long are you holding your hits in??  any more than like 7-8 seconds and you start to deprive your brain of oxygen.

It's called a white-out... probably was caused by a combination of low oxygen and a massive intake of THC.  The one time when I got one my entire vision turned bright white for at least a minute after taking a gravity bong hit to the dome.  Oddly enough, I couldn't stop sneezing for the rest of the day.

I have had the same thing happen to me twice when I was younger smoking blunts. Both times I couldn't hear and my vision went black and white then completely black it was really scary at the time and very trippy feeling. The most common situation for this to is occur is while sitting for a long time smoking a large amount, but what you don't realize when you stand up is you're getting dizzy from just standing up to fast but that combines with your high and bam you have a head rush.

Yeah, if you take potassium supplements it should eliminate the problem of getting a head rush when you stand up too fast.

Ah yes, the flanging blindness of a big ol' toke.  Methinks this has also happened to me.  Actually quite a few times.  It happens when I have taken some knife hits, and I take a big hit and hold it in.  After about 8 seconds there is a flashing curtain that blinds my view of the world as I hear a "whong-whong-whong" in my head.  The body sensations that accompany it are also quite interesting; typically a powerful, pulsing buzz all over, and then it starts to dissipate and the world comes back into view.

One time this happened to the magnitude that you describe.  It was the first time smoking for about a year, and I was up for some knifers.  I took two nice hits, but when I jumped in for the 3rd, it rang my bell big time.  I don't think that the blindness occured immediately, in fact I seem to remember sitting down and feeling my heart beat and the blood rushing through my system, when the stoned sensation just ripped through me and my vision started to become covered with flashing static, with green and purple accents.  I panicked a bit and stood up and went outside, somehow managing to locate the doorknob in my near blindness.  I sat down on some steps as my vision was regained, but there were some nice visuals to be seen - either a green star inside a large round purple ring, or a purple star in a green ring; I think it was the former.... but it was static-like and clear as day in front of the night scene.

The proper medical term for it is "syncope"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_syncope

"Triggers

Typical triggers for vasovagal episodes include:[1]

    * prolonged standing or upright sitting, particularly when standing with legs in a locked position for long periods of time. Avoidance of long-term locking of one's legs in the standing position is taught in the military, as well as marching bands and drill teams.
    * stress
    * any painful or unpleasant stimuli, such as
          o giving a blood donation or watching someone give one
          o watching someone experience pain
          o watching/experiencing medical procedures
          o sight of blood
          o occasions of slight discomfort, such as dental and eye examinations
    * hyperthermia, a prolonged exposure to heat
    * sudden onset of extreme emotions
    * hunger
    * nausea or vomiting
    * dehydration
    * urination ('micturition syncope') or defecation ('defecation syncope')
    * abdominal straining or 'bearing down' (as in defecation)
    * swallowing ('swallowing syncope') or coughing ('cough syncope')
    * random onsets due to nerve malfunctions
    * pressing upon certain places on the throat, sinuses, and eyes
    * high altitude
    * use of certain drugs that affect blood pressure, such as amphetamine
    * intense laughter[2]"

Haha, this thread reminds me of the first time we smoked up my friend's buddy, on dank nonetheless. We were driving to QuikTrip to grab some smoothies and my friend had on "Stand Up, Sit Down" by Radiohead and his completely fucked up friend goes "What do I have to do if I have to throw up?"

He pukes outta the car at about 50mph and when we get to the gas station, he follows us in and completely collapses, spasming on the floor while a cop comes charging over while the rest of us are fucking RIPPEDDD.

"What's going on?"

"Oh, he just has leg problems"

As soon as that was said we booked it the hell out of there.

Lesson: Don't smoke up first-timers on dank
