Pot smoking has become a cool trend. Being promoted as if its a good idea.
You would think a study of this nature would asses the frequency of the users who were part of it. Also I'm pretty high right now and I just took my blood pressure and its around 62 BPM. So take that study!
chicken and egg. maybe they smoke MJ because they are predisposed to high BP.
The potheads don't want to hear that.
All they want to do is talk about how marijuana cures every disease known to man lol
what? I dont even... BP in BPM is not blood pressure.
If you drink coffee, caffeine is a drug. If you take sleeping pills or probiotcs.
Weed is all those in one. It's good to wake to, it's helps digestion, and good to sleep at night.
It's help regulate the body.
Unlike other drugs weed seeps far into fat cells where some cancers begin.
Problem is it seeps so far into your body it takes a long time to rid your body of it and once it completely regulates your body it will be very hard to wake , eat, and sleep with out it
lol at the people getting mad cause no one wants to take junk science seriously.
The government has no power over you, don't wait for their permission. Live your life man.
"In 2005-2006, participants were asked if they had ever used marijuana. Those who answered "yes" were considered marijuana users. Participants reported the age when they first tried marijuana and this was subtracted from their current age to calculate the duration of use."
Yeah this study is fucking garbage.
What did those people eat while using marijuana? Thats probably more of a link to high blood pressure.
I was about to destroy @TheStruggle but others have done this better than I can.
Junk article and junk article. Vet your sources before disseminating what is essentially anti-cannabis propaganda.
Only if you're generalizing..
A. The study is horseshit, and the standards of it's variables and controls bore this out
B. I enjoin you to show people saying cannabis can cure anything and everything. If you can do that, please explain as to how they are representative of the whole of cannabis users, or even a sizable proportion.
I'm a black dude man. If I get caught with one joint (ZERO priors and I'm a retired veteran), I'll probably be proclaimed the next Pablo Escobar.
I can't run the risk of losing everything I've worked so hard for. Besides, if I've never done it, I can't miss it. I can wait...
Fair enough haha, good luck and enjoy your first time.
If you've abstained for this long, I think when you finally do it a couple times, you'll be like "Really? People are going insane over this shit?"
It's not the most powerful high ever. Makes you just feel better, and enjoy entertainment, food and sex more, or at least in different ways.
Two points. It studied MJ smokers, which means the smoking could be the cause, not the MJ.
Second, I don't think it is unreasonable to assume that many MJ users are overweight. Being lazy, and having the munchies, tend to have that result.
Seems that if this is the case, this study just showed what we already knew. Overweight people have high blood pressure.
I see it everywhere, people claiming that marijuana cures cancer, seizures, etc. Tommy Chong told everyone he cured his cancer by shoving cannibis oil up his ass or something. It really is silly.
It's a matter of confirmation bias. Potheads love pot, so they're naturally going to embrace all the positives and disregard the negatives, just like a Trump supporter does.
This has just been my experience in talking with dope heads in person and on the internet.
CBD oils have been documented to reduce seizures, so that is a bad example. It's also worth noting that the oil used does not make people high.
If Tommy Chong says he cured his cancer with Rick Simpson Oil, I would oblige him to commission a study to prove it, but I would not equate his story with some claim that cannabis can cure anything.
If it helps with my arthritis and back pain without destroying my stomach or constipating me to the point that I take the "Dump of Death", then I'm down.
