Users contend that cannabis mixes well with other drugs. But while there are arguments that little or no major health risks are associated with using it, we recommend that you do not use cannabis and visit our cannabis effects page to learn why. If you are in the company of individuals using cannabis or plan to use yourself, be aware of how cannabis combines with other substances so that your risk of becoming a statistic is lessened. Again, the best choice is not using and avoidance of those who do.
Please note that there have been very few scientific studies into the effects of combining psychoactive drugs. The information presented here is anecdotal. It is based on the subjective reports of experienced users. Different people will respond differently to different drugs and drug combination. The effects may be different or dangerous for you. Know your body.
alcohol combined with marijuana - makes both drugs stronger; manageable at low doses, but can cause vomiting, dizziness, and increased paranoia with large amounts of both
amphetamines combined with marijuana - can take the edge off the harsh speed buzz
cocaine combined with marijuana - (uppers and downers) but can help modulate the grinding intensity of coke
ecstasy combined with marijuana - extends and expands the experience of ecstasy; used to help bring on the high, it mellows the intense rushes and helps with the come-down; makes the ecstasy more psychedelic.
heroin combined with marijuana - users report complimentary effects
ketamine combined with marijuana - no reported problems; K, however, amplifies certain cannabis effects (especially closed eye visuals and mind tunnels)
LSD combined with marijuana - dulls the experience in the come-up; heightens the peak; brings back the effect during comedown
mushrooms combined with marijuana - same effects as a marijuana-LSD combination; can increase weirdness of the experience
tobacco combined with marijuana - is a nasty drug
Now with all this information, you might say that, "So you say I shouldn't use, but you provide tips. Why?"
The simple reason is that drug users are not often persuaded from doing something by reading a web page. Our goal is to provide information about the effects and addiction risks of cannabis, and cannabis addiction treatment options that are useful to those in need, and our tips are merely here to help keep those set on using from succumbing to common pitfalls and dangers of usage.
