Ok i was sleeping and then i woke up. But not instantly i just barely opened my eyes and then after that i couldnt move. And also i kept hearing things.I was scared because i didnt know what was going on. And i also felt like i coulndt breath. Like a minute later i could move again, but i couldnt go back to sleep. I was so paranoid and scared of what happend. I thought i was going to die.

Sounds like sleep paralysis to me.

Your smoking the good stuff ain’t you?

Sounds like a panic attack. Maybe put down the bong for awhile. lol

Seriously..take it from a 70’s girl..a little smoke ‘em peace pipe once in awhile is fine..chronic is not.

Lose all your motivation, keep your brain in ultra slow mode….fry your lungs…just think about it.

Weed has nothing to do with it. I’m not sure what it is but you’re weed habit has nothing to do with whatever it is regarding the above comments

It’s probably sleep paralysis. Friends of mine have described similar experiences. You can ask your doctor about it if you’re concerned, but it’s safe to sleep. If it begins to happen frequently, then I’d be worried.

In the vernacular it’s called a coche-mar. It means you awakened while your brain was still paralyzing you to protect you during REM sleep. It happens once in a while.

It was probably just aliens.

Or sleep paralysis, like everyone else said.

I think your brain is telling you to smoke even more weed.

Its a pretty common thing. When in REM sleep your brain immobilises your body to prevent you acting out your dreams. Sometimes when waking the brain fails to hit the GO button again. It’s this phenomenon that accounts for basically all angel & most alien related sightings.

It probably is the sleep paralysis. It’s better to have that than the opposite. I’ve had episodes where I’ve acted quite violently in a dream state, luckily I didn’t hurt anybody.

Rarebear's avatar

@ubersiren is exactly correct. It’s harmless.

super frightening experience. had it once years ago. felt like i was being possessed.
i wish it would happen again though as I’d like to have a more recent memory of it.

That happens to me sometimes when I try to take a nap during the day. It is a very strange thing to experience, and not fun. It’s one reason why I rarely even try to take a nap anymore.

You attempted to describe sleep paralysis, but failed.

Either you’re still dreaming or you did something other than weed.

Great question! ;-)
I had this happen to me once as a teenager & no one would believe me, I had since forgotten about it until this question came up…. Now I know I wasn’t being “silly“! :-/
