How Marijuana effects dream recall is a very common topic for people interested in lucid dreaming. Everyone seems to agree that excessive doses of Cannabis use alters their ability to recall dreams. My theory is a sort of "slipping", or "lazy awakening" in the morning, which triggers us to forget to FOCUS. You wake up not thinking about dreaming or lucidity, rather anxiously awaiting that first toke. This could be a contributing factor maybe. 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, I've read studies which completely contradict theirselves. I don't think it is bad for memory but that's my observed belief. So don't make the mistake of buying into propoghanda claiming that "mary-jane consumption negatively impacts the brain". You can read many studies on Google scholar ( scholar.google.com ) which states otherwise [neuroprotective]. Experts think that the endocannabinoid system acts to regulate memory formation, filtering out irrelevant and useless memories. Stoners everywhere will pretty much agree that it doesn't seem to effect their memory as far as they can tell, besides with dream recall. It could be that it's not affecting it at all, and you simply just didn't remember. Sometimes we're just far from lucid, and it can affect our dream mind, and memory is something that fades quickly when not attended to. It does take practice to recall your nightly adventures of the mind and soul. People will tell you stories of fun things that they did while they were high ten years ago. That, and studies tend to debunk the whole "bad for memory" lie.


Keeping that in mind, is it not plausible that this problem 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. In the book "drugs of dreaming", it mentions a phytochemical researcher named Claude rifat who thinks that microdosing can actually enhance lucidity and act as an oneirogen! How's that for science?


It's my belief that the excessive consumption of Marijuana 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 in more of an internalized sleep and rejuvination than "lucid", necessarily. The trick is to balance that deep relaxation with wakfulness and consciousness. On the other hand, moderate consumption of pot tends to have the opposite effect, sending the user into what I call, "waking lucidity."[I.m.o] I think the trick might be micro-dosing! [taking extremely small amounts before sleep, repeat EXTREMELY SMALL AMOUNTS, hints "micro"] So when it comes to herbs, dope, and "lucid dream recall", I think the Arndt–Schulz rule or Schulz' law, backs up my theories.


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 Reefer 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.


I want to encourage anyone to challenge my sources and do their own research via scholarly journals. Not only has lucid dreaming scientifically proven by a hero of mine named Stephen Laberge, who founded the lucidity institute, but so has the potential oneirogenic properties of Cannabis. When practicing the art of lucid dreaming, it is best to fall asleep alert and conscious rather than just "passing out". Your mind isn't lucid if you're "nodding out". You gotta have some clarity but also calmness. It's about a hybrid state of the mind. As Charley Morley put it, "drift into sleep, float into sleep". You'll know it when you do it too.. So, if you "pass out" stoned, your chances of lucidity are much less. You have to train your mind, and even cut back too[vital]. 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. This idea would work better if it had been a week or longer, that way you'll get that full "rapid HFS escilation of INTENSE AWARENESS" sensation. 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. I don't believe that herb alters your memory. I think that it's your laziness from feeling relaxed or crashing hard that inhibits.


Ever heard the statement, "If you don't use it, you loose it?". Apply this common saying to your memory, your mind, and your dream life!. When people smoke weed they tend to relax and enjoy music, or the moment. I think the act of meditating frees the mind, and pot does that for people. It's the act of relaxing the mind. Sometimes your brain feels the urge to race, others to chill. Switch to a Sativa, and try using your mind more while you're high(do creative things). 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. I don't believe though, that it's the culprit for interfering with peoples lucid mind, their dreams or ability to recall them. I think it's timing, other factors, and potentially excessive use.
