    dizziness and feeling of faint when smoking marijuana

    Well around 2 days ago I smoked a bit in the morning. Ive smoked marijuana around 11-12 times now so I know how to smoke it properly. But 2 days ago I mean wow. I was lying on my bed playing my XB360 and then I decided to get up and have a glass of water(I was starting to feel a buzz until then). Immediatly I became extremely dizzy. My heart was beating at a crazy speed and I was shaking and sweating. My whole vision became blurry and I was losing my balance and I was on the verge of fainting. I was really scared cuz this had never happened to me before. I had difficulty hearing people and could not function properly. It was very frightening!


    Ive heard of Orthostatic hypotension that occurs when someone goes from a seated or lying down position to an upright position which causes a significant drop in blood pressure which could have some of the dizziness symptoms I had. Especially since my heart was beating at an abnormal rate because of the cannabis I had just smoked. (Which can cause abnormal blood flow to the brain, which can cause dizziness mixed with Orthostatic Hypotension.)

    Has this ever happened to anyone else? I really want to smoke marijuana again and enjoy its effects but I am scared that I might experience this effects again. Am I normal or am I just messed up?

    Any help or advice appreciated,

    Happens to me VERY often and has actually made me not smoke as much. It used to only happen after smoking like a gram of schwag or a couple good hits of nugz, but in the past year it has happened more and more often no matter the quality of the bud.

    I also take a blood pressure medicine (it's an ACE inhibitor) due to a preexisting kidney problem, but I don't suffer from high blood pressure. I have the same symptoms when I stand quickly after smoking. I also get a rapid heart beat once the buzz kicks in. If it's too strong, I stick my head in the freezer for a minute or two and drink COLD water or milk. Within minutes I get to feeling better.

    My thought with the head-in-the-freezer trick is that there is more oxygen in cold air, and since I smoke cigarettes too, more oxygen can only help. May just be a psychological trick I play on myself.

    Anything you can put on your stomach should help, too. I find myself eating a piece of bread with peanut butter and a glass of milk (weed mouth CITY), and it really does the trick.

    Don't let this get you down!!!

    I heard that smoking lowers your blood pressure but I can't confirm this

    Just depends on the strain, I believe. Some bud makes the veins in my head stand out, some bud doesn't. It's medicine, so the different strains do different things... kinda like pain killers vs. barbiturates...

    I've heard it both ways though.
