Three things.. One mindfulness practices like meditation, walking, tai chi, can help center an off balance mind. Especially stopping thinking, and being aware of your surroundings. Two community, purpose, sunlight, diet and excercise all contribute to mind state. Water the flower that is your mind with good things. Three, choline. Its a nutrient that increases conciousness, wakefulness, memory, focus. Its heavy in eggs, and especially beef liver.

Still feeling a little crazy? Lately, I've been going back over my nutrigenomics / methylation panel notes. I noticed this study, which is interesting. I'm heterozygous for V158M, it would be interesting to note if you were fully COMT+ and see your other mutations.

My brother (a psychiatrist) and my sister a psychologist treat patients all the time who are badly affect. The problem is it is random - many are not affected but you never know if you will be the one who is. I would suggest you never take any drugs or drink again if you can manage that as clearly it does not suit you. I take nothing, not even headache pills unless I am very ill and feel really good.

I would be surprised if after 2 puffs your memory went. If you think it has try getting a lot of sleep, only drinking water, walk every day outside, eat only whole healthy foods, think positive thoughts and get the memory practising again - try learning a poem by heart every week and that kind of thing.

These days I use marijuana almost daily in moderation. I've used it in excess in the past, and been through extended periods of abstinence. This definitely hasn't happened to me. I'm not aware of any documented cases similar to what you describe, either. If it was a direct result, the stuff was laced. Do you trust the source?

The physical/chemical effects of marijuana are transient. However, the psychological effects can, especially to new users, be fairly profound. It's possible that you were awakened to some pre-existing psychological condition. If so, a psychologist, rather than psychiatrist, could be helpful.

More likely you're suffering an unrelated hormonal or neurochemical condition. Do you get enough exercise? Are you having problems with loved ones? Are you sleeping okay?

Heck, it could even be triggered by a nutritional deficiency. Have you ever carefully tracked your food intake for a week with cronometer.com before?

There's no way that 2 puffs and only 2 smoking sessions could produce these long lasting negative effects. The half life on marijuana is relatively short. As other people have mentioned on here it's even highly unlikely that heavy marijuana use would result in any brain damage:

I doubt a psychiatrist will be able to resolve this issue.

If you are having serious problems functioning, you should look at other possible causes: dietary, environment [ie mold in home], and as a last result you should get a brain scan

I dabbled in the stuff daily for about 10 years. That's over 5,000 times I've been down that road, and I still test at a high level and am programming 100hr work weeks. Trying it for a second time seems early to point the blame finger at a plant for causing you brain damage. Perhaps it's something else, and the weed made you notice this artifact in your thought process?

Hmmm that's very strange... I was a "serious" dope smoker for 8 years or so in which time I never experienced effects even slightly resembling yours. Was the dope possibly laced? Drugs ie LSD has been proven to reveal underlying psychologic conditions but mmarijuana doesn't exactly work the same way.
