Vaping has become quite popular today, and many avid smokers have quit smoking and shifted to vaping for all the right reasons. If you are still unaware of what vaping is, then it is an act very similar to smoking, but instead of lighting the cigarette, one would light up the e-liquid in the vaporizer. Even though vaping is very similar to smoking, the two are majorly different. Smoking is highly injurious to health, as cigars and cigarettes contain nicotine, a cancerous substance.
CBD is in an ever-evolving area of gray in what has been a traditionally black and white area, regarding the topic of cannabis when it comes to its use and legality. Unfortunately, for a long time, and even to this day, most just lump everything into the same category as marijuana or ‘weed’ for short, this is hardly the case with distinct differences existing between the two. Then there’s hemp… yet another category that stems (pun intended) from the same plant. With so many advocates and proponents of legalization these days, and some states even legalizing medicinal marijuana use, it’s about time some clarity was shed on the topic.
With the increasing number of marijuana-legalized states, there is building hype around this green flower. People are showing interest in experiencing weed, and the so-called feeling of a ‘high’. Now, there are several ways of ingesting marijuana like inhalation, oral, sublingual, or topical. Inhalation can have the fastest effect on consumers. In this article, we are going to discover inhalation through dab pens.
Marijuana can be a very useful substance, but given the relative lack of knowledge about long-term effects, we could all stand to be as educated as possible before engaging. A little cannabis can be great for social gatherings, as it reduces anxiety and temporarily improves mood. However, Mary Jane doesn’t always treat its users fairly. This beautiful plant can turn into a flower of doom amongst younger smokers.
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?”
Until recently, the study of the positive effects of marijuana has been relatively overlooked, as have the benefits of cannabidiol, or CBD oil, a non-psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Besides the still-evident stigmatization of cannabis, specific government legislation and funding constraints have made it all the more difficult for scientists to focus on CBD research.
Everyone is familiar with the munchies; that intense, gotta-have-some-snacks-now feeling you get from using marijuana. However, not many people know why marijuana gives you the munchies. In order to provide some edutainment, we will explore the science behind cannabis and its connection to the salty, sticky, sweet snacks that so often follow. There are many different explanations for why cannabis causes the munchies, and each one may just be playing a part in a larger system that we do not yet understand. Just because we do not have a full understanding does not mean that we know nothing at all, however. So lite up, settle in, and get ready to learn why marijuana gives you the munchies.
Understanding cannabinoids as a layman seems to be only slightly less confusing than understanding them as a scientist. That’s not entirely true, but we are talking about a system within the human body with who-knows-how-many receptors and we’ve identified exactly two in the last twenty years. Which is great, because new science is fun, and the concept of understanding cannabinoids is definitely new science.
I've received this question many times: people wanting to know if they can smoke weed to improve their workout. This is a very particular topic where people are either misinformed or simply don't know the answer. The fact is, medical marijuana, when used appropriately and correctly prescribed, can improve your work out.
What are cannabis concentrates? Broadly speaking, a concentrate is anything that is made up of compounds extracted from marijuana, usually either THC or CBD.
Medical marijuana is used to remedy several conditions that may include insomnia, severe pain and anxiety. It is important to note that medical marijuana doesn’t treat the aforementioned conditions but rather serves to relieve them as symptoms of an underlying illness. Concerning sleep disorders, several varieties of marijuana are known to be particularly helpful. In this article, I shall discuss several strains generally regarded as the best cannabis strains for sleep.
Guess what? Marijuana is a very useful plant – and not just for smoking! Over the plant’s long history with human civilization, it has had a wide variety of functions; from industrial to medical applications and now to recreational purposes. It has been consumed by cannabis connoisseurs over the years, and is now approaching the dawn of its popularity and acceptance.
