Please explain the term whitey!




My friend who is coming to Amsterdam with me next week has read about them on this site and I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know what it is! From reading the trip reports it sounds like passing out from too much weed but I didn't know that was possible (the amateur I am!)
Maybe Old Hippie Dave can help me but I'm sure many others can help enlighten us-
A whitey doesn't usually go to a passing out, but close. It's a combination of lots of weed and low body sugar. The quickest cure is sugar whether it be a non diet soda or the sugar packet from a cup of coffee. Duration is maybe 10 - 15 minutes at tops. The term whitey is because the sufferer will get very pale.

If a friend is having a whitey, don't leave them on their own, even more so in Amsterdam. Low blood pressure, lack of muscle co-ordination, complete loss of visual perception of depth can be a bitch around canals...
Can occasionally be linked to speaking to god on the great white telephone/technicolour yawning (throwing up)
In my personal opinion a whitey is most likely to occur when mixing smokeables with alcohol consumption. I have seen some really wild whiteys in the red light district. One fellow passed out in Sheeba and one of those bike- taxi drivers picked him up and took him where he wanted to go. If you or your friend start to get any of the symptoms described above let the coffeshop staff know. Most would be glad to get some sugar into you and help rather than have you pass out on the floor. Peace and have a great time.

I think OHD would tell you to have a Pepsi.... That's what he told me! I wasn't really whiting, but I was the stonedest I'd been in a while, that's for damn sure.
I think that is more the fault of the alcohol than the weed. Projectile vomiting and passing out stone cold are frequent results of over imbibing in tha stuff. IMO a true "whitey" caused by weed is pretty rare and requires a "perfect storm" of circumstances e.g. lack of rest, stronger weed that used to, low sugar levels etc.

It's not an affect of alcohol, it's an effect of lack of sugar/energy.

When you're pilling it's best to avoid alcohol too, stick with fizzy drinks.
ya fizzy drinks and vitamin c that's what I've done before.. Believe me you'll know when you're having one... so will everyone else :)
see "IL Bonliacci" thread in trip reports.

HELMET!

WOOT!

ALSO HAVING A"WHITEY"CAN BE CAUSED BY A LACK OF OXYGEN GETTING INTO YOUR SYSTEM...TOO MUCH SMOKE CAN SLOW THE INTAKE OF PROPER OXYGEN NEEDED FOR THE BODY TO OPERATE.
My amsterdam whitey was alone in the shower my last morning before leaving for the airport.

I thought I was going to drown and I would have too before calling for help nekkid.

Oh man you really ARE smart.

That must've taken you hours of deep reflection. You and your copy of Webster's are on a roll.

Great... now you are stalking me. Just write something smart, okay huckleberry?
Yeah, the hot shower dilates your blood vessels in the legs and down you go. So, whitey is lack of blood flow to brain. Sugar is the universal antidote etc, but having the person put their head down or lie down with legs slightly elevated will solve the problem too.

I get this easily, so I start off with coffee or hot choco-keep my food intake up prior to smoking. Certain types of weed are more likely to do this than others-it is not based on strength alone.

So, eat, try a few hits first then wait, head down if you start to pass out.
ya, no one's forcing you to horse the joint into yourself. If it's all getting a bit hectic, put it out and start again in a bit :)
Last visit I got chatting to an Irishman at the Rookies bar. We had been smoking and drinking for a few hours (although he had I understand been drinking quite a bit longer). He had explained how he travelled from Paris the day before and had not slept or eaten much in the last 24 hours.

Very suddenly despite moments before having a very coherent conversation his colour drained and he appeared very tired. He got up without warning and went to leave, got halfway across the bar and collapsed unconscious on the floor. It took the skilled bar staff over 30 minutes to rouse him after applying fresh air, cold water, raising his legs and eventually forcing him to drink sugar water.

It took me some time before I re-lit my joint, makes you relies how easy it is and potentially very serous, luckly he was in one of the most smoker friendly bars in DAM or it could have been quite different!

A good thread, I agree totally with most of it but thought it worth mention again how serous it can be under extreme circumstances.
This is a racist thread!!!

I am a whitey and this term makes me sick. kinda like a whitey.

WOOT!
Had a quality white one a couple of weeks back. I was round my dealers house who is a good friend of mine. I'm testing the goods when I start to feel unwell. Next thing I know I'm lying on the couch drenched in sweat minus my glasses. I look up to see a large dark fella fanning me with a newspaper. Being short sighted I had no idea who he was, I was under the impression that I had just woken up in my own home & that a burglar had broken in & was standing over me ready to do me in. I eventually figured it out.
