      yeah i went through that as well
      a while ago i was smoking 2-3 time a day and quite regularly before i went to sleep. this was all before i joined dream views and began my LD ing trip, but i was completely empty in the dream department. couldnt remember my dreams let alone remember if i had any at all. then i cut down on my smoking, and it was hard to sleep well for a while, but i began to notice that my dream recall was improving. i smoke about 4 times a week now (very minimal) and my dreams are not affected at all.

      thats how it went for me. hope you can figure it out man!
      I want something good to die for. To make it beautiful to live.

      I was stoned before I slept last night. I got into sp in about 15mins. Its so easy when stoned.

      Didn't lucid as I didn't carry it on. But had big vivid dreams.

      I used to do shrooms every weekend. Acid.. something like if you have a tab then the next day you will need 2 for the same effect of 1 and so on.. Its acid you need a break with to get an effect.
      In very many cases, the visionary quality, the quality of the vision so to say, spills over, into the external world, so that the experiencer, when he opens his eyes, sees the outer world transfigured...

      You can build tolerance to both acid and shrooms, but that doesn't mean you can't trip the very next day, it just takes a little more. Tolerance usually lasts a few weeks at most unless you trip like it's your job.

      That is generally what happens to me. Sleep real easy, sometimes a few minutes after I hit the sheets, and when I can remember the dream the next day its usually a long, vivid dream that seems like it took the whole night to unfold. But lucidity is out of the question at that point.

      As for shrooms, I never had the opportunity to try to LD using them, seems like it could be a waste of money if you wanted to try and time it so that by the time you hit REM sleep, the trip kicked in. But you never know.

      Theres no dream like the dream of reality.

      well if you ever got to the point that you could almost ld every time and you slept you would prob think mushrooms while sleeping would be a great experience
      Before you drift off, don't forget. Which is to say, remember. Because remembering is so much more a psychotic activity than forgetting. Federico Garcia Lorca in a poem said that the iguana will bite those who do not dream. And as one realizes that one is a dream figure in another person's dream, now THAT is SELF AWARENESS.

      has anyone tried smoking IN their dreams? if your brain is familiar with the effects, you should be able to replicate them in the dream world...

      For me, I noticed that if I smoke on a regular basis, but in moderate quantities, I eventually get used to it and start dreaming again even if I smoke. It is possible to dream on pot but you need to find the right balance. Its easy to oversmoke for nothing. Find a good dose for you (depending on the weed too) and go to bed when you would be ready to smoke again. You'll have dreams and they will be wierder an deeper than usual.

I eat 3 to 4 lbs of food a day on weed, without it I typically eat 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. So if marijuana doesn't greatly enhance your appetite like it does for me, then it might not be as big of a deal for you to cut back. But the difference for me has been amazing, since I cut back smoking theres no longer a question of will I have lds each night, its just how many and for how long.

      Dude imagine if you completely stopped smokin weed. You'd master LDing in like a week!

      I'm posting this thread wondering if there any other regular marijunana smokers who have trouble recalling their dreams that are active on this website. Recently i've decided to induldge in the LD community again and hopefully experience some more lucids. Now i can't really do that if i'm not getting any dream recall. Most of the time i like to (almost need to) go to sleep high. it pretty much crashes me out but always blacks all my dreams out too.

      So if you're having this problem too..explain
      I sleep stoned alot, But days where I don't smoke before bed I remember better, But if you are the type who doesn't like not smoking then don't stop keep a DJ and maybe it will improve..It did for me.

      I have had about 8 LDs so far, 4 of them happened on nights I have smoked. Also weird, it seems that my dream recall is much better with weed. It helps my dreams but not my reality.

      I do.

      I smoke pot about every week or two weeks and my dream recall is fine. I remember 7-10 dreams a week. And have been having more lucids with the MILD technique.

      Well Marijuana decreases REM, though im not sure why. It appears to have very similar effects to serotonin for sleep. Marijuana does not produce serotonin but it does produce melotonin (serotonin is the precursor to melotonin).

      The loss of REM will make less dreams occur, but the dream you do have after you smoke will likely be vivid and longer in duration because of the boost of dopamine your brain receives from thc.

      You may have a harder time remembering dreams also because of the affect of on the cannabinoid receptors on the axon terminals in the hippocampus.

      When I smoke a lot, I have hell of a hard time remembering my dreams. But the times that I do remember my dreams, they are usually very weird crazy dreams, but good nonetheless.

      Yeah Ive definitely smoked pot (2x), been drunk and done a line of high grade coke in my dreams. The interesting thing is, Ive smoked pot, been drunk and done amphetamines before but Ive never done coke, yet I felt all the effects that I know of from coke (numbness of the face, racing heart beat, sudden onset/rush of euphoria, etc.). I guess that my brain just interpreted what it would feel like to be on that drug based on the knowledge I have on it.

      Just out of interest is it weed you guys are smoking or skunk? There seems to be alot of confusion over the two these days. I was a serious skunk smoker for about two years and it affected my ability to dream (let alone LD) pretty strongly, I did not remember any of my dreams and usually woke up with a headache. I gave up on skunk (which is a class A drug over here in England) and started smoking weed instead (which is class B/C). I find that smoking weed helps me to LD, in fact it helps me focus on singular things in general. Of course I accept that drugs affect people differently and do not expect my case to be the same as anyone elses. It is purely out of curiosity that I ask...

      Im pretty sure skunk falls under the category of weed. But weed can be broken down into two categories: Indica and Sativa; of course there can be crosses of the two. Indica is known for giving people more of the sleepy, laid back kind of high when Sativa is known for giving people more of an energized high.

      For me, marijuana helps me to have more vivid, bizarre dreams only if I can remember them; I rarely remember them because THC impairs short term memory and reduces REM sleep (both of which affect dream recall).

      I'm pretty sure I've smoked every day for at least the past 5 years or so. The only off days I remember are resin days, when I resorted to scraping my bowl. Weed is part of my life, just as much as eating, breathing, and shredding. I've never had a lucid dream but when I feel motivated enough I can easily remember a good amount of my dreams, sometimes more than one in a night. Never attained 100% lucidity, but I've been trying off and on to do it for years and years with no luck, and I doubt its the pot.

      LSDreaming is always great times, but if you are in the great atmosphere of a hippie music festival you don't even need to go to sleep to feel like you're in a dream.

      Over the summer I ingested molly, coke, 13 hits of acid, an eighth of mushroom, hard alcohol, wine, beers, hash, and all kinds of headie weed over the course of a two day music festival.

      I've also found that the more relaxed the muscles are, the easier it is to lucid dream.....however sometimes I think it can get people stuck in SP. Does maryjane help or not?..hmmm. I think lucid dreaming has a lot to do with our ability to hold our awareness while we fall asleep...and or also becoming aware right? so, actually, a few times I have held my awareness from the time before LD (awake) right through to the LD....in this way, dream recall, and Reality checks are not necessary. So, sometimes pot jams people into their heads and they loose touch with everything else that is going on...in this way, it the pot is not helping. However, an effective technique I have used to atain lucidity immediately from waking life (awake,while lying down) is to watch the random thoughts that rapidly shoot through the brain before sleep. If pot helps one to become a watcher of these thoughts instead of being taken by them...then it is an aid.

      If anything, pot has negatively effected my awareness....pretty much at all times...not that I think it is a bad thing at all,....but, it seems to be something I am no longer interested in now that I have much greater responsibilities, simply because I couldn't enjoy it,...I'd just be worried all the time about forgetting my responsibilities, or whatever.

      I rarely ever recall dreams when I go to bed high. If I'm trying to attain lucidity, or even trying to attain dream recall after I wake up I can't go to bed high.

      Im testing that theory right now. I got up about four and an hours of sleep and smoked a spliff. Not too much but just enough to get the job done. Now Im about to try a WILD to see how smoking will affect it.
