Can Marijuana Help You Lose Weight?
When most people think of a session with Mary Jane, the image of vegging out in heavy couchlock, a bag of Doritos in one hand and a TV remote in the other, springs to mind. Now, this isn't exactly what your average fitness coach means when they say “work out”, unless you're trying to jack up your button-pressing thumb muscles. Based on all of the common conceptions about marijuana munchies, it should stand to reason that cannabis users have a higher incidence of obesity and weight-related diseases like diabetes than do the general population; while an understandable assumption, this is not the case. If we accept that cannabis users often eat more and get less exercise, it begs the question: “can marijuana help you lose weight?”

How to Make Cannabis Coconut Oil
Cannabis coconut oil is abundantly used for edibles, topical salves, body care products, and much more. What makes coconut oil so special? When using cannabis for cooking or in oils, the road to success lies in the high amounts of saturated fats in your extraction medium. The most common medium, butter, contains a fat content of around 60 percent. Olive oil contains only 20 percent. The fatty acid content of coconut oil, on the other hand, is 80-90 percent. This exceptionally high concentration of fatty acids give cannabinoids a potent binding agent to latch onto during the extraction process. Consequently, cannabis products infused with coconut oil are much more effective than cannabis products made with other commonly used mediums. And that’s not all. The benefits of cannabis coconut oil are extensive… and impressive!

History of the Occult, Marijuana and Other Drugs
Inward expansion of human consciousness is never stronger than in times of outward rationalism when the artists, the romantics and the adventurers of society rebel against complacency, against mine grinding boredom, against the current possibilities that stifle imagination. Such a crisis in the human psyche gained momentum during the 19th century against a background of crusading Darwinism and dour, brutal industrialism. It would inspire a revival of the occult mentality. Most were swept along by the carnival of burgeoning western hegemony, whether they wanted to be or not, but others, psychologically the same group of outsiders' as in earlier times, wanted to look beneath the surface in search of a more positive destiny for mankind, a spiritual rather than a scientific awakening. They eschewed the passive stance of orthodox religion (which paradoxically became anything but passive in the hands of Victorian imperialists practicing muscular Christianity on the peoples of foreign lands), and some, often the most talented and inspired, embarked on the journey into inner space using psychoactive drugs such as hash and marijuana as the signposts, the spirit guides to point the way.
