I have been thinking. Sometimes things may have a therapeutic effect in small doses, but negative effects at higher doses. I may take a verrry tiny toke of weed...I mean, just a super small toke off a pin joint, or, barely light the top of a bowl. What do you guys think? I haven't smoked in well over 2 years since my nightmare began :(

In my experience even 1 small hit would make DP worse 100 times.

So you have actually smoked since your DP started, or are you assuming this?

I smoked regularly for 2 years after DP started. It always made DP Worse 100 times every time. That's why I continued...I wanted to feel the pain. I've been sober now for 4 years from weed.

Even contact high was enough to send me into a bad trip.

My brother is 100% all about that. He smokes to help the anxiety and says it really worked for him. I have not smoked in almost 12 years and got DP 2 months ago - he told me to try what he has been doing and I already know it would make things 100x's worse. I know it.

Sucks I can't really help you when my brother would tell you to do it for sure and I'm saying don't even think about it. Perhaps it would help, but i'm guessing it wont.

I believe anyone suffering, or that has suffered in the past from DP, should completely eliminate the use of any drug. I thought smoking a little weed after recovering from DP the first time would feel like a normal good high. But no, the nightmare has returned.

If it's been 2 years, I would say don't smoke again, it will just keep the DP going. Ive smoked weed a year after I got DP and it just stayed the same, constant DP, but a light toke wont really do anything anyways, it wouldnt be worth it, just either stay away or do it.

I think this is an absolutely rubbish idea. Please don't try this. No good will come of it.

There is no such thing as a contact "high" but there is a such thing as anxiety caused by expectations of something bad happening which is what more then likely happened in your case.

To the OP: Unless you smoke weed already don't bother. Some people just don't react good to cannabis and thats that so if you didnt in the past i doubt you will now.

This is not always the case and has never been a problem for me. I smoke weed on a almost daily basis sometimes and my dp/dr and brain fog has not returned at all. I also use more then a few other drugs and did during the worst periods of my dp/dr and brain fog without making it worse. Hell cannabis especially certain strains seemed to make it better.

I am not endorsing weed as a treatment for dp/dr by the way but this was just my own personal experience.
