The last time I went this long without any thc was February of 2015 when I went to Thailand for a few weeks & quit for about a month total. Currently, I’ve gone a week without any thc & every night I’m having the craziest dreams starring whoever I have been watching on the YouTube.

In last night’s memorable dream I was hanging out with Phil Daru

This guy shares a lot of great training information & focuses on strength & conditioning for mma.

The dream took place in a big casino type of environment, I was walking through with Phil when some random guy attacked me on the casino floor. He tried to ankle pick me, but I was able to use my long arms and sprawl without being taken down. I then pulled guard & let the guy try to swing from the top but he was not able to land anything, tried to triangle choke him but wasnt able to lock it up. I’m pretty sure the fight was broken up at that point, the only other part of the dream I remember was hanging out in a suite after that.

Reminded me of the fight dreams I used to have when I was young, except I got to practice some jiu jitsu & felt like I was playing with the guy the whole time. Was fun!

A few nights before I had a dream where I met Owen Benjamin in person.

He is a 6’7 comedian who talks about being a height supremacist pretty regularly, which I find very funny because I’m 6’6. The only thing I remember about the dream is when I met him, he was actually shorter than me 😂 I immediately called him out about lying about his height & we both had a laugh about the irony of him being a “truther” type on YouTube now & lying about his height. That’s all I remember, was funny.

This last week has been the easiest it’s ever been for me to not use thc. I’ve been using cbd (no thc) oil a lot so I’m not fully cannabis free.

The cbd oil has really been helping me sleep, which has previously been the hardest part about quitting thc in the past. Good sleep is the most important thing for health & brain function in my opinion. I’d like to ween myself off the cbd oil as well eventually. Aiming for the fewest dependencies possible 👍

Sweet dreams all

Damn its been awhile since Ive had no THC. So crazy your dreaming of youtube people lol. THat CBD tincture looks nice. Btw bro if you use the weedcash tag, it will also appear on the front end. I know you staked your weedcash, might as well start earning it, and getting more visibility on your posts. :)

Stoked to see you on the weedcash network. The crazy dreams we have when we quit smoking. 😂. Someone I was talking to on smoke.io mentioned a study that concluded THC shortened the period of sleep where we dream so our dreams generally aren’t long enough for us to remember. When I quit at the beginning of the year I had crazy nightmares for a couple months. Then it chilled out. At least your vivid dreams are kinda fun.

Ya, Ive heard cannabis affects REM sleep before. Seems like I hardly ever remember my dreams when I smoke, but I also get on a great & consistent sleeping schedule on weed so shortened rem might make the most sense. These crazy dreams have been mostly fun. I had one super weird sexual dream that was too weird to share with anyone, was the closest thing to a nightmare so far but wasn’t scary at the time, but when I woke up it was scary 😂

everybody had crazy dreams when quit smoking weed especially if you smoke a long time. but chill out yes cbd can help and the think you need more is just time. you be totaly fine in a month or so. if only you knew what fucking nightmares i had when i try to quit... i was wakeing up full on stress and sweat. i mostly was seeing cops beats me up and/or being in prison, for almost 2 months 😀
also nightmares caused by not smoking weed is nothink to compare with yeyo or h 😎

I definitely got the night sweats for the first 3 or 4 days. Also day sweats, I feel like my body is desperately trying to burn the thc in my fat cells to get a little hi when that happens. Never tried the yayo or h but I can imagine it is a very painful process
