    I fell in our hot-tub last weekend, sustaining a concussion. I don't know if I passed out and don't remember hitting my head, but remember starting to slip & fall, thinking I would drown. (I was outside alone. Dumb, I know.) I remember trying to get my legs out of the tub and couldn't so I threw things at the patio door until my Hubby came out. From then on for about 24 hours, my memory is reeeeal funky. Hubby said that to say I was acting bizarre was an understatement and wound up calling 911, sending me to the hospital in an ambulance. The irony is that I wasn't high.

    Now for my question. I've done a Search and have been unable to come up with any info on about concussion & cannibas use afterward. I waited until a lot of the "fuzz" cleared from my head before resuming use, but am a little hesitant, because I haven't regained all of my memory. Any experience/knowledge on this subject?

    NOTE: Don't try this at home, Kids. It hurts like Hell & will ruin your week.

    hmmm....well, i have a few buddies that play hockey. And a few of them have had concussions and we smoked the night after each of their concussions and nothing has happened so in my experience you should be fine.

    I was pistol-whipped and had a concussion, I smoked a joint right after I got the stitches in.

    Hey I have a similar thing going actually. I totaled my car a month or so ago and have had a bad concussion. Memory was shit and everything but was coming back slowly. Since I started smoking weed (it may not be related at all) my symptoms have gone down dramatically. Less headaches and my memory has actually improved!

    The wonders of weed :cool: . Why the fuck isnt this stuff legal! :confused:
