                   How Marijuana effects dream recall is a very common topic for people interested in lucid dreaming. Everyone seems to agree that excessive Cannabis use alters their ability to recall dreams. In this article I will share with you my beliefs on this subject. We will also take a moment to compare observable data, scientific studies, and ponder this topic. I have some suggestions for stoners interested in lucid dreaming in this article as well.

Scientifically, it's been proven that Cannabis does not damage or alter memories that we already have. Experts think that the endocannabinoid system acts to regulate memory formation, filtering out irrelevant and useless memories. Stoners everywhere will pretty much agree that Cannabis doesn't seem to effect their memory as far as they can tell, besides with dream recall. People will tell you stories of fun things that they did while they were high ten years ago. Keeping that in mind, is it not plausible that this is because the things people forget while they are high are a form of selective forgetting?

Sober people forget things too. Our memory is sort of like a hard disk for a computer. If we fill it up with useless information then we are wasting valuable space. What about our dreams though? I think that it's certainly not impossible to use Cannabis and still become lucid. In fact, I know it's not impossible. It's my belief that the excessive consumption of Cannabis leads to a very deep meditative state, which I think is healthy from time to time. In this state, I tend to think that a person is more asleep than lucid. On the other hand, moderate consumption of Cannabis tends to have the opposite effect, sending the user into what I call, "waking lucidity."

I think the key here is how much Cannabis is being consumed. For example, a medical rule known as the Ardnt-Schulz rule basically states, "For every substance, small doses stimulate, moderate doses inhibit, large doses kill." Now of course, there are exceptions, and we all know that Cannabis is not capable of killing anyone, ever. The point is though, that different dosages have different effects. Smaller dosages seem to induce waking lucidity, larger doses induce heavy intoxication, and even larger doses induce deep sleep like meditative state.

If you wake up the next day in a pile of twinkie wrappers, and your entire day was a blur, then you probably smoked insane amounts of pot. Don't get me wrong, it's a ton of fun. Lucid dreamers will tell you though, that it can take quite some time to get your dream recall back after this. So to all of my fellow stoners who are also interested in lucid dreaming, I have some suggestions for you. Limit excessive Marijuana use to certain occasions. Use Cannabis sparingly, so that you're tolerance stays low and when you smoke you get the "waking lucidity" effect. Meditating with large amounts of Mary Jane is great, however; Take breaks and use the part of your brain that forms memories.

When practicing the art of lucid dreaming, it is best to fall asleep alert and conscious rather than "passing out". So, if you "pass out" stoned, your chances of lucidity are much less. You want to not be exhausted when you crash. I came up with this idea where you utilize the combination of taking pure melatonin after smoking a good sativa right before bed. Only, make sure that you haven't smoked a lot throughout the day before this. The idea here is to utilize the soaring energetic sativa induced lucidity and carry that over into your dreams. The melatonin will put you to sleep, and the sativa will stimulate your mind. Throwing a little bit of some herbal memory supplements in the mix should also help.

Ever heard the statement, "if you don't use it, you loose it". Apply this common saying to your memory. When people smoke weed they tend to relax and enjoy music, or the moment. Try using your mind more while you're high. Read a book, write a paper, play a musical instrument, or do anything that stimulates the use of your mind and memory. Using things like Ginkgo Biloba in conjunction with your Kush is also something that I think is a good idea.
