My brother smokes hydro regularly. Been smoking for about 6 months, constantly.
One day one of his (friends) handed him a little container similar to a eye drop container.
Was told that it was 100% THC.
He put that stuff in a vape pen, which none of us family members knew about.
My brother is a smart guy – very smart.
If you told him it was synthetic, he would not have smoked it.
So since the first day he did it, he flipped.
It’s been 7 days now.
On the 5th day is when we starting realizing something was not right.
Remember, we didn’t know he was smoking anything other than weed.
So he’s been hallucinating, paranoid, talking for 2 hours straight without sitting or lowering his voice: yelling.
Reminiscing about his past childhood, saying he is king! the best!… then downing himself.
Until I asked what has been different since Tuesday, the day things changed, he said just this 100%THC.
That’s when I did some research.
He was not high, like weed gets you.
He could not even sit down, would not let any of us talk.
We were trying to tell him that he was doing strange things.
He could see our concern, but would say that he never felt like this before. Again, hallucinating.
We finally convinced him to throw that pipe away.
Can’t convince him that he was not smoking THC.
It’s been 12hrs since his last hit, and his brain still hasn’t come back.
The violent, strong monster-like outbursts are minimal. But he is still not making sense.
How long till he comes back?
I have to constantly watch him so he won’t commit the mistake of a lifetime.
Again, my brother is a business owner, age 32, military, college education, functioning citizen of society.
I say that because it can happen to anybody.
Tragedies does not forgive anybody.
He is asleep now, hoping he wakes a different person, hoping he realizes that what he feels is not normal, hoping that he allows us to take him to seek some medical help just to make sure he doesn’t have permanent damage.
This is day 8.
Thank you for listening.
