I bought “weed” for the first time when I was 15, this was three years ago because I’m 18 now. I live in Arvada, Colorado, where weed is legal.
I smoked it around 40 times without any crazy side effects, thinking it was weed the whole time. It felt like a powerful weed high for about 2 hours, maybe an hour and a half.
After time went on, I started to become delusional and a little bit psychotic. I thought that my grandpa was working for the CIA while I was high, but deep down inside, I knew that wasn’t true.
I decide to stop then, but not completely. I smoked it with a group of friends a couple more times after I ran out of bud, and it kind of felt like a weed high, which was strange.
Out of a group of stoners, nobody even realized it was spice. The short term effects I got directly related to spice use was I developed a stutter in my speech. I would break down and start crying for no reason. Some aggressive behavior, suicidal thoughts everyone knows and then.
The room would spin uncontrollably for about 10 seconds, probably ever other three days, even when I hadn’t smoked it in a couple of days.
I still don’t feel precisely the same to this day, but with proper medication and treatment, I do believe you can recover, and the brain will heal itself over time.
I just pray that there aren’t any long term effects, let’s say in like 10 or 20 years. Such as brain cancer or lung cancer or early dementia or something along the lines of that.
As of right now, around three years later, I’m doing just fine and stopped all drugs around 25 days ago after an intense mushroom trip. I had a realization that none of the drugs I was doing were helping me in any way at all.
If you’re still addicted to this day and having a tough time quitting, I recommend magic mushrooms as treatment. Take them with respect, they are not something to be messed around with and can be very terrifying if taken recreationally in the wrong setting.
They do actually switch something in the brain, and ever since my trip, I have been continuously staying on top of my health and taking all the right supplements for my brain to recover.
They help addicts in a way that nothing else can. I cannot stress this enough. It’s almost like eternal wisdom that you couldn’t see until the experience.
