Hey, I am just wondering if anyone can give me some advice about a problem one of my best friends is having. Here's the story; He has just recently started to smoke and he has been getting some weird side effects, he describes it in his own words as "My body shakes like I'm having shivers like I am naked outside when it is freezing cold, my heart starts beating faster, my hands are clammy, and my mouth is totally dry." This has happened to him every time we have smoked together, always after he is high, sometimes even a long time after he smoked, he says he has smoked with me and my crew and then gone home and gone to bed then the next day when he wakes up he gets the same shakes and sickness that he sometimes gets directly after the high fades away. I read the side effects section of this site, and we definitely did not eat any bad food, or do any of the things that were said to be dangerous. I don't know what to do, we decided for the moment that he shouldn't smoke, but he doesn't like not being able to chill with us, and we don't like the fact that he has this problem that none of the rest of our crew has experienced. I'd appreciate it if anyone has any thoughts that might help solve our problem. Thanks.



P.S. He isn't like a sickly person either, he has very mild asthma, but other than that he is totally healthy. And he has never ever experienced these symptoms at any time except for after smoking.

He doesn't have mild epilepsy or anything? He may not be able to toke unfortunatly. Is it a must that he has to smoke to chill out with you? Does he take asthma meds?

He doesn't have mild epilepsy, and of course it isn't a must that he has to smoke to chill with us. I was thinking that it would not be a good idea for him to continue hitting it up, I was just wondering if he may have reacted to this particular green different than the rest of us or something.

Try a different toke, if it still does it then he may have to give it up. Problem with buying, you never know whats in it or where its been.

Anyone who has asthma shouldn't be smoking anything. Life has it's drawbacks and not doing something that is very dangerous to you because of a medical condition is one of them. Perhaps he could try ingesting the weed. Hey, I've ate a nice sized bud of really good smoke and got a great buzz from it. It's a different type of buzz, but if he can't, or shouldn't smoke, that may be a reasonable alternative to smoking it. The THC can be ingested in many ways. Look in the section at the bottom of the list of areas in this group.

Good luck to him.

Just my 2 cents here... I once lived with a guy who couldn't smoke because when he did he would get quite shakey (and I think a little paranoid, but he denied that part). Being grower myself, I thought I would do him a favour and cook him up some brownies. Oops. Ingesting is (in my experience, with my recipes), quite different from smoking. And it did my buddy more harm than good. He said it was the worst experience he'd ever had with weed. Granted, my buddy's a freak (I love him, but he is!), so who knows if this is relevant. :) Just a word to the wise! :)

L.M., could your friend possibly just be experiencing panic attacks? Some people worry a great deal about toking down-- side effects from the B.S. we've been fed by our govt. about the evil weed.

my 3 cents: givehim a gram(or let him fight the dealer him self, unless of course you have some from a recently dured plant) let him smoke by himself, and see if it happens, probably just anxiety, the pressure of smoking around you, not saying no when he wants, then realising what hes done later, my 3 cents have been givin...now go fecth me my bong :)

no i dont think thats right at all. when i was -10-12 years all i had asthma this is be for i came in contact with weed. one day I had some really bad asthma attack. my mom gave me the ventalin liquid and it did not work. every time i took the ventalin pump the asthma attack would go away and then come back a few mins later. i had allways had asthma attack but not like this. soon i was at the limit to how many time in a hour i could take the pump. my mom took the pump and heald it away from me because i was going to over dose. i relyed on the asthma meds so much that i push my own mother down just so i could get the asthma pump from her. after that day i stop relying on the med. that when i stat dealin with weed. after a year or less my asthma was gone and i have not had a asthma attack yet.
mom took me to the doctor to check up on my asthma. the notice that my chest was not the same. then he tried to get me to say that i was smoken weed, but i said no because the only contact i had with weed at the time was 2ndhand smoke. so because i did admit to it the doctor told my mom that it looks like i grow out of the asthma. i have also heard the same type of thing from other people.

I'm glad that it worked for you. I've known several people who have asthma, and if they even get around ciggerette smoke or weed smoke, they get all tied in knots and leave while they say "I can't breathe in here".

There are so many different types of problems and people, there really isn't a "one cure fits all" type thing.

Good luck to you man.

i too had bad asthma and then started to toke, and no more problems, but as far as your buddy is concerned, i feel that it is in fact anxiety, i had it too after i had smoked due to paranoia and my parents finding out. i had the feeling that anyone who saw me knew i was high and then i was really eslf consious about what i did and said. but, that was when i was 14, not too long after would i just learn to go with it and chill. hope your friend works everything out in his head, cause, as we all know, it is a great experinece being high.

asthma attacks occur when inflamation or muscular spasms cause the bronchial passage of the lungs to contract, making breathing difficult. other symptoms are coughing, wheezing, increased pulse rate and in some cases the patiencce will go blue in the face. Mostly the patience is panic stricken and pale. 85% of Asthma sufferers can alleviate their symptoms by smoking marijuana.

Whewwww, you guys are sharp! I obviously haven't kept up to date on this topic as you guys have.

I found a very through study on MJ use during an induced attack and found that the MJ *did* help the test subjects.

Very interesting.

They did say towards the end of the study disscussion, that *smoking* MJ was not a good idea for best effect. They suggested that an aerosol be used to deliver the thc to the lungs in a similar fashion as the inhalers used by asthma sufferers.

Here's a link to the article:

Man, I've gone and learned something today!

Very cool.

Vaporizers? not a bad deal. nothing quite like getting THC without all the desiduous matter along with it.

As an asthma patient i'll admit that I never tried a joint during an attack.I "out-grew" asthma way before I started smoking so I never got the chance to try it.I'll try to induce an "attack" one of these days and give it a try :p

Though I love to smoke...I know people who can not...like anything else...it does not agree with everyone...I would also tell him to go without to make sure he did not have the symptoms without...if he still has symptoms when not smoking I would tell him to seek medical attention...
