    Cannabis is considered a mild psychedelic;

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychoactive_drug#Subjective_and_behavioral_effects

    At high enough doses a weed high can resemble a low dose of LSD or shrooms. Perhaps at insanely high levels you could experience the epitome of revelation found in the classic psychedelics.

    Have any of you ever experienced ego death from weed? I assume you would have to consume like an ounce all at once the reach such a level. But do you think it is possible? If so how was it? And how was it compared to ego death from acid or shrooms?

    Yup. And it all depends on how I'm feeling, what I'm lsitening to, ect... Some Jimi Hendrix definitely improves the situation as long as I'm feeling like listening to it at the time.

    Even though marijuana is classified as a psychedelic, many smokers will claim even hallucinations are even impossible to get from smoking. Ego loss is a lot bigger step than hallucinations.

    I don't think its possible. Your body won't let you get that high. "Smoking more pot doesn't increase the effects of the drug; it diminishes them."

    I should mention that this only happens when I'm riding a bys, or when I'm closing my eyes while laying down in pitch black, listening to music and the ego loss-death is shortcomed and I come back to noticing everything after every few minutes or so.

    Wikipedia's definition was pretty weak, so here is a better definition of ego-loss.
    Source.

    "sum total of all the thoughts, feelings and sensations that make up a person's experience"

    I don't think you can lose all that just by smoking weed. In my experience, marijuana increases all of those.

    I don't think you know what Ego Loss is. ;) :wave:

    I personally don't believe it is possible from marijuana. I don't even think one can get "low dose" effects of shrooms and LSD from pot. They are just different drugs, different effects.

    I have experienced it before from other psychedelics, but pot? Nope.

    I think it'd be possible if you consumed ridiculous amounts of weed, but I doubt it.

    No, and I'm pretty sure it's not possible. I don't even think that you can get hallucinations, not even mild ones.

    I've never heard a person who has actually experienced a strong psychedelic ever say that weed can make you hallucinate or have ego-death. Ego-death is much more intense than hallucinations...

    It's when your ego dies. The voice in your head is no longer there, you lose whatever you grasp to be reality. You can no longer distinguish between your surroundings and yourself.

    Basically if reality is shit, well, it hits the fan.

    I'm telling you that ANY member here who has experiences with multiple drugs, and have smoked for years, can tell you marijuana will not induce it.

    It's a life changing experience.

    Depends if one is ready for it or not.

    Some people hold too dear the material world, and for it to break apart infront of them might be too much. ;)

    while I've never experienced ego death I know someone who said that he "turned into a chair" once when he was really high. I don't know if he really experienced ego death or if it was more of a placebo thing.

    No, but I'm sure it's possible.

    I haven't every experienced ego death from smoking to much weed, but seems like i've come close. I think you'd pass out before something like that happened, but i'm sure it's possible ;)

    That's a big negative on the ego death, Ghostrider.

    I've been severed from reality when really blazed but there has never been a total loss of ego. I have had very low grade hallucinations. Seeing things in the corner of my eye, various shapes and stuff, lots of visual noise, especially with the lights off and the tv on.

    What is your definition of ego? and ego death?

    It would be a good thing if we could all kill our ego's but I don't think smoking a lot of weed is going to do it. Smoking weed canhelp you find your inner self which is your real self. But I can't see it destroying your ego completely because that is a very hard thing to achieve.

    I smoke a joint or two every night and thats it so i do not consume large ammounts of mj except for last week. My buddies herbs were done so we smoked probably an ounce between three heads, but no ego death. After the 5th blunt it was basically impossible to blaze much more, mid you these were 5 and 6 g Ls so all that happend was went to sleep and the next morning woke up with killer chaped lips and still a bit goofed. Not my cup of tea, but no ego death!

    Sorry, but I accidently voted saying I had good ego death. But I really meant I just thought it was possible. I do believe however that I gone through partial ego death.
