Hello all,

I have been diagnosed with bipolar and I was wondering if this would prevent me from being able to enjoy weed ever again. My shrink says avoid it and he says it can cause episodes in bipolar people. Just curious if anyone here has a mental condition who still smokes weed.

Do a bunch of drugs, really get into it, dive into your sea of madness and backstroke through it

You just have to be more selective of your strains, find what works for you.

Do you have any recommendations? I've ruled out sativa strains, do you think a hybrid would be too much sativa? I am very sensitive to weed.

I was never diagnosed with anything but ever since the first time I smoked weed I've been living with depersonalization/derealization. I feel so empty and I've tried to kill myself a few times because of it.

That's really weird but how do you know it was the weed that did that to you? I mean no offense, but unless it triggered some latent mental illness, then what you are describing shouldn't be possible after the drug leaves your system. Are you sure you aren't just looking for something to blame these feelings on? I've also suffered depersonalization in the past from drug use (not weed) and its natural to try and come up with reasons for the condition. In my own case I was convinced that I had a mental illness when in reality I didn't and it was just my uninhibited drug use causing my problems. Sounds like yours might be the opposite of my situation. Don't kill yourself mate, things can and will get better with time and patience. Someday you might look back on this and wonder what the hell you were thinking. I don't know you, but one thing that helped me find myself again was to get involved in new things and find a change of scene. Its worth a shot anyway.

I have depression/anxiety (not the same thing I know), family history of bipolar disorder and mental illness on both sides of the tamily. Used to smoke a lot of weed but nowadays I get extremely anxious and it makes me more depressed whenever I smoke - I think it's not great for people with mental illness (makes you feel better only while high and all the stuff you were using weed to suppress comes back as soon as the high is over).

But at the same time, it can be good to relax every now and then - if you are going to keep using try not to become dependent on it and don't use it like a coping mechanism but only when you are feeling OK to begin with. I wouldn't reccomend daily smoking but maybe once or twice a week is OK.

Also look into high-CBD strains/ "hemp flower" this is like weed but without the THC that gets you high, so you feel relaxed and a bit of a body high without it fucking up your mental state from being soo high. I don't smoke THC anymore but I smoke CBD pretty much all day and don't have any negative mental effects from it. You could also try combining THC and CBD which is what I used to do until I became super sensetive to THC and can't tolerate any amount of it

I once had an existential freak out as a kid and my parents didnt know what was wrong with me, I was traumatised. freaks me out to think about, just had a kinda wtf is reality moment. No drugs were involved I was a kid.

Without drugs life can make you mentally ill. Ride a bike or something idk

I would say that it definitely did trigger some latent mental illness and technically it happened the second time I smoked weed because the first time I didn't do it right and I didn't feel anything. I was 16 and ever since then life feels like some sort of dream/simulation and I can't feel seriously emotionally connected to anything or anyone anymore. It's been 10 years since then and I've long since come to the conclusion that this isn't going away. I'm stuck with this til I die, whether that's by my hands or not.

I’ve had really good experience with the Kush line. OG, Bubba. Also hybrids coming from it are good for me. Any kind of cookies and Lime Sorbet was pretty much the best weed I’ve ever had. Also had some luck with some sativas, like Durban Poison.

Bipolar is helped by weed, your shrink is Nancy Reagan and doesn't know what they're talking about. Smoking weed regularly evens out your moods.

Not my experience, if anything, meditating and doing kundalini while baked off my ass has done nothing but improve my sense of well-being. Perhaps it isn't marijuana that is the problem, but that you are ruminating over negative memories rather than meditating.

I was thinking cossfaded meaning alcohol and weed, alcohol in general is not good for your mental health in my experience

have bipolar 2. i still use and enjoy it but i can't really say that I also have my bipolar necessarily controlled right now. I can't necessarily blame the weed, though, because this decade has been fraught with stressors in my life that are starting to untangle themselves. will that have a better effect on me than my increased desire to die when I'm on a t-break and still dealing with shit? probably

tl;dr if you meet your social and work obligations, who gives a fuck if you smoke

I'm 9 years young schizophrenic and cannabis has been an amazing medicine in conjunction with my psych meds.
