So to start off to my knowledge I’ve only ever smoked real weed and enjoyed it immensely. I was a newbie and thought a few times I would never have a bad experience on it.
Well one day, I was smoking with three friends (co-workers) and we were hitting the bong, and after the 3rd hit, I knew something bad was happening to me. (Mind you I was high off the 1st hit and was good but didn’t want to look “weak,” so I kept up with the passing around).
Well, I just remember coughing a lot, not feeling well, my head hurting, heart racing (too fast), time distortion (time was too speedy and slow), going in and out of reality, shaking from feeling cold even though I was warm, and the freakiest part was visuals.
From the research I’ve done because I was both scared, curious, and fascinated by the experience, I’ve concluded that I experienced Synesthesia.
At this point, I stood up and covered myself with a big blanket to calm down because everything I heard turned into a visual of colors, graphics, and words.
I thought the effects would subside, but it got more intense and worse. My whole body was pulsing; I could barely speak or think. When I opened my eyes, everything turned into a pixilated version of itself but as a kaleidoscope.
Everything got large and small at the same time. When I shut my eyes to stop the visuals, I felt like falling, and felt like I would die and never return.
So I fought the urges to sleep but was so hard. Now as all this was happening my friend who is a girl also had an experience similar to mine and at the exact time my nightmare started.
She was not nearly as bad as I was, though. We both agree everything echoed and felt like it was an eternity for each breath we took.
I felt the need to go home, so my friend drives me as could not, as I had blackout periods. I felt like I was trying to be taken away from my body and wonder if it might’ve happened in those blackout moments.
I’ve smoked plenty of times before and after that time but I rarely if ever smoke out of a bong anymore. It scared me. I have been stoned out of my mind many times, and I was completely fine.
So I have no idea why that one day my friend and I (both girls) had issues when the two guys didn’t? We don’t know to this day why but I wonder if it wasn’t just weed and was laced? Or if it was K2. Anyhow, I wouldn’t touch k2 with things I’ve read.
