I made the biggest mistake of my life and accidentally tried synthetic marijuana.
Now, just so you know, I am a frequent marijuana user and have been for the better part of my life. I do not condone or endorse the use of any type of narcotic. It is not my intention by any means to promote drug use. In fact, it is very much the opposite.
What I want you to understand is that I thought I had a high tolerance for Pot, but I was sorely mistaken. I couldn’t tell you where it came from, what it’s potency was, or even what to expect afterwards. What followed was the worst experience of my life.
It started with a small tingle in my finger tips and slowly spreading upwards to my chest, and then straight to my brain. Soon, my entire body felt like it was falling, like gravity was forcing me straight through the earth, but I was sitting down the entire time. My heart went from a steady rhythm to full on freight train.
Now, what I’m going to try to explain next might sound like I took something other than “SM” SPICE but I can tell you right now that that wasn’t the case.
I began to sweat uncontrollably as I was panicking over this new sensation. Then, music started playing from out of nowhere. It sounded alot like a death metal vocalist, you know, the guy that screams all the lyrics. Not that I’m a fan or anything but that’s what I kept hearing over and over again in my head.
As I tried to focus on the ground because that was the only thing not shaking to bad. I felt a wave of emotions come over me. Anger, sadness, regret, fear, I felt everything wash over me like a tsunami. I tried to steady my breathing realizing that if I didn’t start coming down I was gonna be in big trouble, but then I thought how can I call for help if I can’t even move?
I finally noticed that I hadn’t moved at all even though my brain was trying to tell my hand to pick up the phone but my hand was unresponsive. The only thing I noticed that I could move were my eyes, and I knew that I couldn’t trust my eyes either because as I focused on the ground my head was lifting itself up. I didn’t want to look up but my body would not listen to me.
As I stared blankly at my wall the feeling of everything that was in front of me was rushing towards me, hit as soon as I looked up. I felt like my body was now being pulled through time, waves of warm energy flooded my face and chest as I began to wonder how much more could I take before my face melted off. I briefly pondered peeling off my own skin just to get rid of this feeling. But I quickly reconsidered.
“Sick” I know but, I just wanted to be as honest with my experience as I could so that people who might read this and reconsider trying this for the first time.
You might be wondering, what happened next? Honestly, I was stuck in an endless loop of Hell for the better part of an hour, but in my reality, it felt like days.
