Meth with weed, or having weed laced with meth may not be common, but it’s possible. Many people, especially those who buy weed from the streets, may not know that their weed is mixed with meth. However, there are those who intentionally mix meth with weed for a variety of reasons.

Let’s talk about Meth first.

What is meth?

Meth, also known as crystal meth or, in the Philippines, as shabu, is a powerful and potent stimulant. It is highly addictive as it provides a long-lasting and intense rush of pleasure and energy. Coming down from meth, however, is a different story altogether as it brings about a surge of uncomfortable experiences, such as anxiety, paranoia, and psychosis.

Meanwhile, weed comes from a marijuana plant and is known to give users a feeling of relaxation.

Mixing Meth with Weed

There are people who smoke weed and use crystal meth to take the edge off the meth’s high or ease the meth’s unpleasant comedown effects. There are those, meanwhile, who say that using both can intensify the high.

There are also those who mix weed with a little meth as a novelty and sell their products at a higher price. There are also those who do this to expand their meth consumer base.

However, mixing the two can cause extremely different effects that can vary from person to person. While for some people, smoking week can dull the sharp effects of meth, others can feel increased paranoia and anxiety, even vivid hallucinations. There are also those who feel a sudden increase in heart rate.

Repeated use of both drugs, separately or together, can cause addiction which can then lead to numerous negative consequences. Both drugs can alter the brain’s reward circuitry and change the way people behave and discern. This can then lead to them becoming dependent on the drug to the point that they experience withdrawal without it.
