Cannabis is a plant that produces a number of chemical compounds, which are known to produce benefits for humans. These benefits include helping to reduce depression, boost the immune system, and improve concentration.
The latest research from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) suggests that cannabis may also help people with certain disorders. Researchers have now found that cannabis can effectively ease pain and reduce anxiety.
While it hasn’t been proven that cannabis works as a treatment for mental disorders, there is evidence that it is a great pain reliever. One study showed that the chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in the plant can help reduce the pain of arthritis by up to 40%, which is why many people turn to cannabis for pain management.
With marijuana, the pain-relieving effects of the chemical THC (which is responsible for the analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of marijuana) can be more pronounced. THC is in the same family of psychoactive compounds as the opiate painkillers, and can be abused on a massive scale. One of the side effects of marijuana use is the development of a tolerance to the effects of the drug, meaning that the person becomes less able to perceive the positive effects.
So if you want to get high, you’re going to have to find a way to avoid the negative effects of the THC. In some states, the use of marijuana is legalized, but it’s still illegal to grow a marijuana plant, transport it, or sell it to others. Also, the amount of THC in a marijuana plant is regulated by the plant’s weight. So if your plant is small, you will likely get a higher dose of THC.
The good news is that, thanks to the government’s ban on cannabis, you can still get high pretty easily. The bad news is that the bad effects can be as bad as the good. I’ve had friends who’ve tried and failed to get high on pot, only to be kicked out of their house for simply lighting up a joint. I’ve also been on the receiving end of bad weed jokes, and had to explain to my friends that it was not a good idea to smoke it.
In the summer of 2013, I was getting pretty burned out on the stress of the daily grind of life in the real world. I had a week off from college and was on my way to do a lot of hiking and camping. I wanted to take some time to decompress after the day that had been so rough. I decided to go to the local store and pick up a few things. When I got there, I found a bag of weed.
I thought I was in the clear, but when I opened the bag I saw that it was a little bit of a mixed bag: a few joints, some hash, and some dried cannabis flowers. I thought, “Oh boy, I’m totally screwed.” I mean, I didn’t have any weed in my system, so my system wasn’t actually working.
So, I put it in my cart and headed back to my car. I thought about it and realized that I was going to have to hike all the way back to my car to get my weed back. I was about to head back down the hill when I saw a man down the hill. He was smoking a couple of marijuana joints. I stopped and he stepped out of the bushes and stood right in front of me. He looked like he was ready to fight.
