Out of curiosity, and since I see the word "trip" used to describe experiences with weed quite a bit, how many of you consider weed primarily a psychedelic?
I wouldn't say that I necessarily consider it primarily a psychedelic, but I definitely get visuals off of it pretty frequently. Honestly though, I think I have a mild case of HPPD from all the obscure research chemicals (and typical run-of-the-mill psychedelics) I've ingested over the past 2 years. I say that because sometimes shit moves or breathes on me. Inanimate shit, that should not be moving or breathing (floors, walls, etc.) even when I'm totally sober. I never used to get visuals off of herb until after I started doing a lot of psychs.
With that being said, I don't know whether or not to chalk it up to psych usage also or not, but for about the past year, if I don't have a steady supply of herb, and I go without smoking for a day or two, I get panic attacks and just a generally miserable high. It disappears after smoking once or twice, and if I have a decent supply it's not really an issue. I bring this up because a couple of months ago I was chillin' with my friend. Hadn't smoked in about a week. Well, he packs up a GB of medical, and I hit it. Immediately I'm like "Shit, too high." (something which I used to would have NEVER found myself saying). Well, he packs up another one and pulls it. I'm like, "Nahh dude, that's all you." He tells me to hit it, and again I say, "Nahh dude, that's all you." So he starts to let the bottle drop. "Man, this is gonna go to waste if you don't hit it." Anxiety or not, what kind of stoner would I be if I let a GB (of high-grade, nonetheless) go to waste? So I hit it. I then proceed to trip fucking balls. Like, reminiscent of 25-I type shit. Was looking down at my phone and it was flashing, the words were fucking up. I mean, some really crazy shit that I've never experienced before. I know it wasn't laced as A) Does anyone even do that anymore? Or ever? and B) He was just fine. Even me, with the first GB... I was kinda freaking out, but no more than usual after a little break. The second one though, holy shit. I can't even begin to drive the point home of how crazy shit got. Never had happened before, hasn't happened since.
So I wouldn't necessarily say it's primarily psychedelic, and it didn't used to be at all for me. But over time, it's definitely adopted some psychedelic characteristics, and that one time... Oh yes. Heavily psychedelic.
