I have been getting an exquisite version of MAC from a local dispensary lately, and I love pretty much everything about it -- the smell and look of the buds, the smoothness through my rig, and most of the effects. It's a nice, complex, balanced high, but I have noticed that it definitely causes my Tinnitus to act up. This is strange, because I can't recall any other flower causing this. I've been mindful since I've noticed this, and verified that the other cultivars I'm currently smoking -- most from the same grow location as the MAC -- don't cause this. It's unfortunate, because I'm an artist/musician, and it's such a creative high otherwise, but it interferes with songwriting, as well as when smoking to get Shanti. Anyone else notice this, with MAC or any other strain? Any idea the terps or cannabinoids that might cause this? Thanks!

Well. I'd go get your blood pressure checked out. That's a very common cause of roaring tinnitus.
Thanks, yeah, I've had Tinnitus since I was in the Navy back in the 00's. Naval aviation + faulty earplugs = tinnitus. It's always more or less present, but like I said, this MAC gets it going. Maybe it is something heart-related like you said, like the rush from the hit or certain cbd receptors, but who knows. Was just curious if anyone else with Tinnitus experiences this from smoking particular strains.

I have smoked dabs that make you feel hot and flush for a little bit. Thought that was odd.

I have tinnitus from a hunting incident years ago where a guy fired his shotgun inches from my left ear. 😡

Anyway, pretty much any flower with a high THC content, or concentrates will make my tinnitus appear to ring louder. I’ve have this happen with dozens of different strains.

Interesting. Yeah, tinnitus is a degenerative thing, so maybe this is just the beginnings of the issue worsening.

Yeah, I am, actually! Got diagnosed with it on an audiogram at the end of AD, and finally got around to filing it in 2012. Good lookin' out, Cohi, thanks
