    Default Suboxone & Weed

    What are your guys' take on smoking cannabis while on suboxone? I think it kinda blocks the effects somewhat and makes the high not last as long and just kinda different... anyone else that smokes feel the same way?[?]

    Ok now I know I'm on sub but i have never even been close to a benzo addiction and feel pretty safe with them ever now and then. I use them sometimes to get sleep at night cuz i seriously have the WORST insomnia on suboxone its ridiculous, i mean i already insomnia b4 opiates, so its just like even worse on sub now. So i dont get why all the dr/s out there are tellin u guys to not take benzos on subs or u can die or blah which is BS, now if u mix xanax with OC or something then yeah i can see the danger there (especially to the drug-naive). But yeah it also seemss like suboxone blocks all my favorite herbal medicine, which is cannabis. The sub doesnt totally block the marijuana high it just seems to kinda down-grade it and make it less psychedlic and chill and the other good feelings, i dunno subs just seem like they really seem to impact other drugs too like benzos and bud cuz on suboxone (im on 2mg or less a day) i can barely feel xanax or bud... wtf who knows...maybe i just smoke too much ganja..[?]...I also use ambiens
    What are you asking?

    Is your question why aren't you getting high or is the question how do you stop seeking the high?

    What is your goal here?

    Well i've been using herb to help me sleep at night and sometimes smoke during the day when I got nothing to do and havin a boring day. I mean i love bud, i dont consider it a drug. But it helps me sleep at night and is a lot safer then using benzos. But what I'm saying is that: When I am on Suboxone and smoke a bowl of dank the high from the bud seems to be almost like blocked by the sub, i mean i get high but its not the same as it is when im not on sub (which i can't do right now anyways)

    Hmmm....well, I'm not going to discuss the efficacy of pot when contrasted to benzo's.

    That type of thinking...the "disappointment"...is going to keep you in the game. Life is full of disappointments, babe, and whether or not you get a buzz from pot while on Sub should really be the worst of your problems.

    What I would say is that there is no reason for you to be bored. Try being of service to those less fortunate....you might just find that you'll lose the self-absorption of concentrating on why the pot does or doesn't work.

    What can you do today that is not self-seeking?

    First, let me tell u that I am a College student so ,yeah I got school work and sh*t to do all the time or work so on my down time i like to enjoy a bowl of cannabis to relax and watch movies or w/e, marijuana effects people differently, it really helps me with enjoying a book, analyzing a movie hardcore lol, or whatever else i like to do when im high. I'm not a stereotypical pot head that u are thinking of, i use it as a tool and u probably wouldn't even be able to tell that I am stoned if i was around u. [;^)]
    I kinda see what ur saying.. but what do u mean by self-seeking?
    I dunno what I've been doing these past few months...im on sub cuz i got addicted to OC awhile back and any other opiate i could get (Hydrocodne, percocet, Dilaudid, Fentanyl, Demerol(which sucks), and tramadol (which i still like to take every now and then cuz they actually work on subs! 4 real). anywayz so yeah i mean i could prolly get by on 1mg every other day (currently taking 1-2mgs a day) and then start weening down till im on like 0.5mgs once every 3-4 days and then jump from there to just tramadols for a week and then nothing and u get off with almost no w/d's, except a few mental, but physical is all i care about. -I got mind control, and mic control. maybe I am "selfish" in ur sense of worrying about my marijuana, but thats kinda wrong to say im self-seeking seeing u know nothing about me, all im wondering is if anyone else could or would like to reiterate on the topic of: "Smoking marijuana while on Suboxone" and their experiences or inputs...

    lol no its far from bad weed my friend. Its some straight BC Buds, just like good normal dank (the $50 an 8th kinda sh*t and its worth it).. i know my weed my friend and all i smoke is Dank and Headies(- kush, purple haze, all that krazy sh*t) cuz thats all I can get.. sometimes i wish i could get mids just cuz its so expensive for me to smoke when i have to pay $45-$50 an 8th everytime i want some bud even tho it is dank so its not like im getting rippped off. Then again i love dank, its so much better then mids.[8D]

    The last time I looked, this an opiate detox and recovery site.

    It is not a Dear Abby advice column for smoking pot while on Sub site. You probably can find them elsewhere on the internet...everything exists somewhere on the internet.

    And my dear...you proved my point. Instead of chasing advice on why pot isn't working for you while you're on Sub...how about helping a newcomer who just go on Sub or is trying to come off? Be giving of yourself. You might just find that your boredom dissipates with that last pull on the reefer.

    for a long time before opiates i used to smoke pot daily for years. for me the pot stopped getting me high at one point towards the end. once i started opiates i smoked a few times but didn't really like the buzz anymore and i dont think it worked too well for me then either. honestly, i never smoked pot while on the sub so i really dont know how to answer your question. but sub is really strong stuff and i wouldn't be surprised if it detracted from any buzz you got on the pot. after all, opiates are good at numbing you out to feelings and experiences...i dont see any reason it would be different for pot.
    if its not working, save yourself a buck or two and just quit. if you take it up later then thats your prerogative. though if you find it really hard to quit smoking pot you might want to take note of that and figure out why.
