6 Ways to Consume Marijuana Without Smoking It

6 Ways to Consume Marijuana Without Smoking ItEveryone is aware that consuming marijuana by smoking is the most popular method of ingestion, and pretty much the only method you see in the movies.

But these days, there are actually a lot of other ways that cannabis can be enjoyed, and you may want to try some to broaden your own experience. There are also some people that have respiratory problems which requires them to avoid any kind of smoking.

Regardless of your motivation, here are many other ways that you can have a rewarding cannabis experience without smoking.

1. Dabbing

This is a type of flash vaporization whereby concentrated cannabis is dropped on a heated water pipe attachment and then inhaled.

The appeal to this method centers around the tremendous potency of the vapor which results from the concentrate being superheated. It also involves no smoke, and is completely disassociated from the plant itself.

2. Topicals

These are balms and lotions which have been fused with cannabis, and which are applied to the skin directly.

This application is far more about the relief of inflammation, soreness, or aches and pains, than it is about any kind of euphoric effect. In fact, cannabis topicals are well-known for the capability of treating symptoms without any kind of psychoactive effect on the subject.

3. Edibles

Edibles are probably the second most popular way of ingesting cannabis, and the category also includes drinks infused with cannabis.

This consumption has become wildly popular recently, and it continues to grow, with retail shops marketing everything from infused lemonade to brownies to roasted garlic crackers.

A word to the wise: since edibles take longer to kick in and eventually produce powerful psychoactive effects, it’s best to start slowly and eat or drink a little bit before adding on.

4. Vaporizing

Many people prefer the taste of vaporized cannabis to that gained from smoking it, and of course vapors are much gentler on the lungs and respiratory system.

Some of the more expensive table-top size vaporizers offer a variety of temperature control settings, while still producing high-quality vapor.

There are also the smaller hand-held sizes available for enjoying the experience on the go, so there are suitable vaporizers for pretty much any situation.

5. Ingestible oils

These are cannabis concentrates which can be consumed orally, and which commonly come in plastic applicators or capsules. Either of these types can be added to food or drink, or even consumed directly as is.

Ingestible oils are much like edibles, in that it may take a while for their psychoactive effects to kick in, but when they do, the experience can become very intense.

6. Tinctures

These are infused liquids with cannabis extract included, and they can be consumed by applying them directly under your tongue.

Contrary to either infused foods or ingestible oils, tinctures hit the bloodstream quickly, so their effects are felt almost immediately, and don’t leave you guessing about dosage.

An added bonus: they come in a whole slew of flavors and strengths, so you can be sure to find one that appeals to your taste or your medical needs.

Get the Most out of Smoking Cannabis

For a novice who has only heard about the medicinal properties of cannabis, as well as its recreational appeal, it’s worthwhile knowing a few things about smoking it before you actually plunge in, so you can get the most out of the experience.

The process of smoking itself is probably something you will come to all on your own, and you’ll develop a personal style that suits you, but before you’re ready for that, here are a few things to remember.

cannabis-Sativa or IndicaSativa or Indica?

There are two major classes of cannabis, Sativa and Indica. They each have very different effects on people who make use of them.

Indica
  • The type that causes you to be drowsy
  • It allows your cares to slip away as you become more mellow
  • It’s terrific for relieving pain and lessening anxiety, if you’re the stressful type
  • It’s also terrific for insomniacs and others who have occasional trouble sleeping
  • Chances are, within just a couple hours of smoking Indica, the Sandman will be beating you to death
Sativa
  • Usually has the effect of awakening creativity
  • It energizes you so that you feel like accomplishing something
  • Sativa is not the kind you want to be smoking right before bedtime

Understand the equipment

If you’re just smoking cannabis in cigarette form, the only real equipment needed is rolling papers. Although, using those would be the subject of another ‘how to’ discussion.

A small water pipe can filter out the more annoying elements of combustion, and it can be easily cleaned with isopropyl alcohol, which cuts through resin like dish liquid cuts grease.

Bongs are probably a bit of an overkill, it can be a pain trying to keep them clean.

Vaporizers do eliminate much of the smell of smoking, and they also cut down on the inhalation of smoke, but on the other hand they also cut down considerably on the intensity and duration of your enjoyment.

Don’t even think about blunts

Even though blunt usage is popular today, it has the alarming side effect of addicting you to nicotine. This is because blunts are marijuana cigarettes rolled up in tobacco-leaf rolling papers, and as everyone should know by now, tobacco is loaded with nicotine.

Apart from this highly undesirable long-term effect, smoking blunts will also have the tendency to kill your taste buds, so you won’t be able to enjoy the aroma of anything else you want to smoke.

It’s okay to get silly!

Everyone has seen characters in movies smoking marijuana and within just a few minutes, becoming outrageously silly and losing all sense of propriety.

Don’t feel guilty about this – it’s 100% natural, and that euphoric effect you feel is pretty much the whole reason for smoking in the first place.

After you become a veteran cannabis smoker, you can show everyone that you’ve left the ranks of the beginners by adopting a pleasant smile instead.

Be ready for paranoia

It happens often enough that as you get well into smoking session, you acquire feelings of paranoia. It’s nothing that would tend to ruin the experience for you, but it does get you looking inward more than you would normally.

It’s fairly common for people to have the sensation of being outside their own bodies, looking down at themselves and reflecting.

Just enjoy the opportunity and go with it


5 Potent Strains of High THC Marijuana

THC structureThe most potent strains of high THC marijuana are considered to be those which contain 20% or more of the psychoactive component known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

THC is the element responsible for the euphoric state users feel when they use. It’s worth knowing which are the most potent strains because of the benefits that come from the strains richest in THC.

However, there is a caveat to labeling certain strains as the most potent ones. There is a lot variability in the THC content due to climatic and growing conditions.

For instance, a normally high-THC variety grown in one area can have a significantly lower percentage of THC than grown in another area, just because conditions were less favorable in that growing season.

Here are some of the marijuana strains which consistently tip the scales at over 20% potency. These provide the most powerful recreational and medical benefits.

Girl Scout Cookies

Yes, it has an ironic kind of name for something pretty far afield from activities normally associated with Girl Scouts, but anyone who tries this variety will become a believer quickly.

Numerous lab tests have confirmed that the typical potency of this strain averages 28% THC levels.

Users have frequently described its effects as overwhelmingly euphoric and providing a peaceful warmth that can literally go on for hours.

Kosher Kush

This is a relatively new strain, developed sometime around 2010. It is one which has quickly taken its place among the leaders of marijuana strains that are on a high-THC makeup.

Identifiable by its surrounding coat of crystalline resin, Kosher Kush invariably tests out above 20%, which makes it a serious contender in the most potent competition.

Bruce Banner

No one knows how or why this strain was named after the alter-ego of The Hulk.. but the nomenclature seems to be appropriate.

Lab tests confirm that this strain of herb tests out at close to 30% THC content, which can make anyone feel like a much larger version of them self.

It has mowed down the competition in Denver and retains a place as one of the premier potency champs on the scene today.

Ghost Train Haze

Another newcomer, developed by Rare Dankness Seeds. Ghost Train Haze is a sativa strain which routinely tests at 25% potency and above.

After imparting a rush of euphoric energy, this variety is known for fostering intense periods of creativity and powerful focus.

Gorilla Glue

This is a hybrid variety of marijuana which derives its name from the resinous appearance of its buds.

It is known for having THC content between 23% and 28% across numerous samplings.

The feeling it imparts to users is nothing like the aggressiveness you might expect from a real gorilla. It’s much more like a fierce mellow that will leave you content for hours.

Official Disaproval of Marijuana as a Gateway Drug

In the 1950’s, the US Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics,

candidate as gateway drugs are prescription drugsHarry Anslinger put forth his famous theory about marijuana being a ‘gateway drug’; a substance which led users into harder and more harmful drugs. That perception was taken up by literally thousands of other officials and people in the medical field, with no specific statistical evidence to back it up.

Apparently the fact that it seemed logical was enough people to adopt the theory as fact. For decades, that has been the prevailing opinion among many Americans, even though not a shred of evidence has been found to prove it.

Recently however, more research has been done about the positive effects marijuana has and how its medical properties bring relief to people suffering from an illness. It seems that the time has come for an official renunciation of the ill-conceived notion offered by Anslinger all those years ago – and that’s just what is now happening.

The US Attorney General Speaks

In a recent talk at a town hall meeting in Richmond, Kentucky, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch clearly acknowledged for the first time that marijuana should not be considered a gateway drug. That it does not encourage users to progress into harder, more addictive drugs.

The meeting was specifically set up to talk about the dangers of opioid abuse among high school teenagers, but during the course of a question-and-answer session, the focus turned more to marijuana usage. In response to some very specific questions, Attorney General Lynch admitted that government statistics simply do not support the notion that marijuana usage leads to opioid abuse or any other drug.

Prescription Drugs as the New Gateway

Instead she pointed out that the more likely candidate as gateway drugs are prescription drugs. Since statistics do bear out the fact that users of prescription drugs tend to seek more and deeper highs, these ought to be considered the real gateway drugs in society today.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse has corroborated the statements made in Lynch’s talk at the town meeting, declaring that the majority of cannabis users do not go on to use harder, more addictive substances.

It may have taken 70 years to do it, but the ridiculous notion of marijuana being a gateway drug has finally been officially debunked. Once the general public embraces this new reality, a great deal of the stigma associated with marijuana usage in the past, may finally be overcome and laid to rest.

The Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Cancer and Chronic Pain Treatment

Benefits of Medical Marijuana for Cancer and Chronic Pain Treatment, Med Red CrossThe positive effects medical marijuana has on patients suffering from cancer or chronic pain is the subject of much debate throughout this country. Many supporters tout its ability to ease chronic pain where other pain medication drugs have failed, while others say there’s just not enough known about the potentially harmful side effects of this substance, which is still illegal in many states. Scientific research is still ongoing but the general consensus within the medical community and those suffering from the debilitating effects of pain associated with their disease is that it works.

Benefits

This form of pain management — now legalized in about half the states in this country — is used in precise doses to relieve nausea and pain, and increase appetite in those suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. Approved for this use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), medical marijuana is also thought by many supporters to contain anti-bacterial properties, with an ability to reduce tumor growth and enlarge the airways to help those who have asthma. Whether smoked, made into hot tea or eaten with other foods, medical marijuana can relieve pain that cancer patients and others live with on a daily basis. Many are going through chemotherapy which can induce nausea and vomiting.

Medical marijuana can suppress this urge where other drugs have not worked as promised. A mouth spray version of medical marijuana, not yet approved here in the States, is thought to help relieve muscle spasms related to multiple sclerosis. Recent studies have shown the inhaled marijuana can help relieve neuropathic pain, which is essentially pain brought on by damaged nerves, as well as improve the food intake of HIV patients who struggle with loss of appetite. Studies have also found that patients who use medical marijuana have a far less need to take conventional pain medication, thereby reducing the negative side effects of those meds, particularly to the liver.

Legalization

The long and short of it is that more Americans are in favor of legalizing medical marijuana than criminalizing the substance, according to the Huffington Post. A recent poll says 58 percent of Americans say the plant should be legal. There are several reasons why. For starters, this substance has never been the subject of any recorded overdose when compared with other deadly illicit drugs or even prescription pain killers. It’s even been found to be less addictive than coffee, with a low risk of abuse. It can help you sleep better and alleviate a host of medical ailments including chronic pain due to cancer.

The Politics

Unfortunately, as with anything else, politics gets in the way sometimes of pushing through new legislation that counters the historic view of marijuana being “bad.” Famed neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta is exploring these stigmas of marijuana in his research around the world and resulting documentary called “Weed.” He explores what emerging scientific findings are proving about the positive benefits of this substance to the body and the brain in particular, helping others understand how the old school political system may be hindering patients from getting what he feels is a low risk pain-killing benefit from a plant that occurs in nature.

Initiatives

With more and more states passing legislation allowing the use of marijuana and medical marijuana, there are also more awareness-generating initiatives underway that highlight the struggles people with cancer and other deadly illnesses go through, including the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Movember and Livestrong. These organizations and events help spread awareness of the devastation of cancer and other chronic diseases, sparking ongoing conversations about what can be done to help.

The benefits of medical marijuana for chronic pain relief are well-documented. However, there is a still a long way to go.

Amazing Dietary Benefits of Cannabis

In the view of Dietitian Jessica Aragona, the next best thing might be the most nutritious plant ever discovered by humanity with some amazing dietary benefits of cannabis. That’s undoubtedly saying a lot of course, but there is some strong evidence to back up the notion that cannabis has some powerful nutritional advantages.

For instance, it is a terrific source of protein, it’s very easy to digest, and it’s rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, which are known to provide numerous health benefits.

For those who follow a vegan lifestyle, cannabis is also dairy-free, gluten-free, and 100% vegan, so it can fit right in with that lifestyle.

Raw dietary benefits of cannabis

Raw cannabis is not psychoactive unless it is first heated, but it still contains two very powerful compounds which are disease-fighting dynamos; cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

When these two are ingested like any other vegetable (for example mixed in with a salad, blended into a smoothie, or juiced into a liquid) they produce some tremendous health benefits to the consumer.

Dr. William Courtney is credited with being a prime move in the ‘Raw Greens’ movement, and helped to reveal many of these benefits by devising a method for raw cannabis juicing.

In one of his best-known cases, a woman named Kristen Petuski-Courtney experienced an astounding return to good health after suffering through years of chronic illnesses which left her virtually debilitated. All medical treatments had failed her for years until she was introduced to raw cannabis juicing – and her miraculous recovery began.

The woman in this case is far from an isolated success however. As Dr. Courtney himself says, “Whether Sativa, Indica, Ruderalis, male, female, hermaphrodite, native, feral, bred for fiber, seeds or medicinal resin, cannabis is the best source for beneficial cannabinoids. Over 50 patients have used only cannabinoids to put their cancer in remission, and over 150 have found symptomatic relief.”

Medical conclusions

Dr. Courtney’s medical conclusions about the benefits which accrue from ingesting raw cannabis are startling, and may hold the promise of medical breakthroughs in the future.

He has found that ingesting cannabis raw is far more effective than smoking it, because the properties of cannabinoids are degraded through heating, and lose their therapeutic effectiveness.

Raw cannabis however, triggers activation in the brain’s own cannabinoid system, and that results in the release of antioxidants in the body. As most people are aware, antioxidants serve as cleaners in the body, and cause the removal of many kinds of damaged body cells. This in turn, increases the efficiency of all other cells in the body, which are no longer burdened by weakened or damaged cells.

While smoking cannabis does treat the symptoms of many pains and illnesses, raw consumption seems to be far superior in terms of providing a healthy and therapeutic boost to the body’s systems, and possibly curing the causes of those problems.

A New Treatment for Brain Cancer Patients

GW Pharmaceuticals from the United Kingdom has announced some very positive results from a clinical study on Glioma, which is a therapy involving the use of cannabinoids to treat one of the most aggressive types of brain cancer.

Patients who were given Glioma as a treatment for glioblastoma multiform (GBM) lived significantly longer than patients in the study who were given a placebo instead.

Glioma is a combination of THC and CBD

The active ingredients in cannabis, and it represents a very different alternative to treatment for brain cancer patients, achieving promising results that bode well for future treatment programs. Among patients participating in the trial program, the average number of days which patients survived after taking a placebo was 369, while those who were given the Glioma treatment survived 550 days on average.

In addition, patients who were given the THC/CBD drug generally tolerated it very well, with only minor side effects after ingestion. Medical personnel associated with the study were greatly impressed, and were optimistic about the potential for the cannabinoid-based drug in the treatment of GBM. One of the most common brain tumor types, GBM originates either in the brain or the spinal cord, and generally carries a terminal prognosis, since only 28.4% of victims live longer than a year following diagnosis.

Far-reaching implications

While the results of this study were both impressive and promising, there is an even greater significance associated with the study’s outcome. Because of the very positive indications from the study, the CEO of GW Pharmaceuticals has declared his company’s intentions to further research the medical applications of cannabis, especially as a treatment alternative with other forms of cancer. Since the GBM study clearly validated Glioma usage as a potential treatment, it seems quite possible that it could be used to manage other diseases as well.

Epidiolex for epilepsy

GW Pharmaceuticals has also pioneered the research and development of Epidiolex, which is cannabis-based treatment for people suffering from epilepsy, and that has gone on to become a very successful product for epilepsy management.

In addition to research on cannabis-based alternatives for the treatment of cancers in the lungs, breast, pancreas, brain, kidneys, and bladder, GW has also investigated cannabis treatment for diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and even schizophrenia.

Some of these research programs have already led to the obtaining of patents on various cannabis-based products, as they have been shown to be partially to strongly effective. As continued research turns up more and more promising results, it seems likely that some or all of these products will receive worldwide attention, and will ultimately gain acceptance as mainstream programs for treatment.

Cannabis to treat Insomnia Sufferers

Acute insomnia is a condition which affects almost all people at some point in their lives, and it’s generally triggered by some kind of stress that is encountered during the daytime.

Typically this insomnia occurs sporadically

It is not a persistent condition like chronic insomnia would be. Chronic insomnia affects more than 1 billion people globally, and often occurs three or more times per week for those who are afflicted by it.

In addition, about 50% of all seniors are troubled with insomnia, and in most chronic cases, the cause is associated with a long-term health issue, which explains the persistent nature of the issue.

These causes can be

  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Some forms of cardiovascular disease,

These can interrupt the sleeping patterns regularly of those who suffer from it.

Perscription drgus.. the most common treatment for insomnia

At least in the case of acute insomnia, the major cause of sleeplessness is attributed to stress, so anything which can be done to relieve stress is a useful treatment option. Exercising more and eating healthy foods are both good ways to help relieve stress, and for those who are so inclined, calming practices like yoga can also banish stress to a certain degree.

Treatment options for chronic insomnia are necessarily a bit more involved, since the cause is generally attributed to some other health condition which requires its own specific program of treatment.

Sleeping pills have not been shown to have the kind of significant impact which a sufferer might expect, in many cases only adding 10 or 15 minutes of sleep per night. Other more powerful medications, for instance Xanax or Valium, can be extremely addictive and are not recommended, except in extreme cases.

New treatments for insomnia… Cannabis

A growing body of research now supports the fact that cannabis is an effective treatment option for people who suffer from lack of sleep.

The National Institute of Health (NIH) conducted a recent study, and found that people suffering from insomnia who consumed THC (the active ingredient in cannabis), fell asleep much more quickly and more easily than the control group of people who did not ingest THC.

Studies also indicate that subjects sleep longer and better after having consumed THC, with fewer interruptions during the night, and a decrease of awakenings overall.

THC induces longer periods of “Deep Sleep”

Additional studies have also demonstrated that THC induces longer periods of deep sleep among consumers, and this is extremely beneficial, because it is the deep sleep state which plays the most significant role in the body’s natural restorative processes overnight.

Further studies indicate that men and women who suffer from breathing problems such as sleep apnea are often able to breathe much easier as they sleep, after having ingested THC.

Medical research is now discovering what many cannabis consumers have known for years – that it can be a very effective agent for aiding in the sleep state which is deeper and lasts longer.

Can Cannabis Treat Migraine Headaches?

In the past decade, cannabis has been found to be highly effective at providing treatment options for several medical issues. As legalization spreads throughout this country, additional research is almost certain to discover many new ways that cannabis can be used to treat health problems.

It has already been proven extremely effective at reducing stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, relieving various types of aches and pain in the body, and has even shown promise in the treatment of some forms of cancer.

All these uses have contributed to the groundswell of support which cannabis has received in many states for medical applications.

To the growing list of possible medical uses, one more may soon be added; for treating migraine headaches. As most people are aware, migraines are severe headaches characterized by blurry vision, increased sensitivity to light, disorientation, nausea, and sometimes even a disruption of coordination.

Current treatments for migraines

Migraines are currently treated in two ways, in a preventative mode, and after the fact, when a migraine is already in progress.

When one is in process, pain relief medications are generally used, for instance acetaminophen, opioids, and steroid hormones.

To prevent the onset of a migraine, various drugs are used which are classed as anti-convulsants, anti-depressants, and anti-inflammatories, as well as some types of cardiovascular drugs. To complement the use of these drugs, migraine experts often recommend acupuncture, tai chi, yoga, and massage therapy, in addition to ingesting specific herbal supplements and vitamins.

Cannabis treatment of migraines

Since one of the primary medical benefits of cannabis centers around the treatment of pain, it would figure that cannabis might be an effective way to handle the acute pain associated with migraine headaches.

It can also aid a migraine patient in getting to sleep, restoring appetite, and reducing stress or anxiety, which often attend those intervals between headaches. The nausea and vomiting, which commonly accompany a migraine, can also be mitigated to a large extent by the anti-emetic effects of cannabis, which work to reduce or eliminate nausea.

Another very positive aspect of cannabis use in the treatment of migraine headaches would be to eliminate the dependence that a migraine sufferer might develop for prescription drugs. By replacing most of those opiate-classed drugs with a more benign treatment program, the need for powerful prescription drugs can be reduced or completely done away with.

More testing and research will be necessary of course, before cannabis can be anointed as the one-stop wonder treatment for migraines, but the fact that its known properties manage the symptoms of migraines very well, would seem to point toward cannabis as a treatment with tremendous potential for alleviating the unpleasant and often debilitating effects of migraine headaches.

The Effect of Marijuana on the Brain and Body

There have been some studies done on the effects of marijuana on the brain and body over the past 10 years, but not many because marijuana is still labeled as a Schedule 1 Drug by the FDA. Which means it is really hard to do proper research on the plant, the effects it has on the body, and the medical enhancements it can produce as well.

But there has been a recent report released this past month (January 2017), by The National Academics of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, that has combined a mass majority of the studies that have been conducted.

THC Interactions

Tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly referred to as THC, is the active ingredient in weed that makes us feel high. It communicates with human rewards systems in the brain that makes us feel happy and releases dopamine. Some studies suggest that this can be an issue if people smoke too much marijuana because it causes us to feel less during our natural rewarding experiences.

Heart Racing

The National Institute of Drug Abuse’s report states that heart-racing is another effect marijuana can have on the body. Within the first couple puffs, marijuana makes your heart rate rise, but it does not mean it increases the risk of a heart attack.

Sense of Time

It could have an effect on your cerebellum and basal ganglia, two parts of the brain that regulate a person’s coordination, balance, reaction time, and posture. A 1998 study showed that it could possibly alter the blood flow to the brain, which could have an impact on our sense of time; moving faster or slower.

Our Appetites

Ever wondered why we get hungry when we smoke weed? A recent study conducted on mice reported that marijuana could affect a part of our brain that is associated with our appetites, making us think we are hungry when we really aren’t.

Memory Functions

Marijuana can also have an effect on our memories. Several studies have concluded that weed can interfere with our short-term memories, but that it tends to be in less frequent users than more frequent users.

Depression and Anxiety

Some studies suggest that weed has an impact on people that deal with depression and anxiety.

“One study from the Netherlands suggests that smoking weed could raise the risk of depression for young people who already have a special serotonin gene that could make them more vulnerable to depression.” – Erin Brodwin, Kevin Loria, Business Insider

It could also increase the risk of schizophrenia in frequent users, which is a big concern.

Sports

Some athletes believe smoking marijuana could help some their athletic achievements. Researchers believe this could be because it essentially “numbs” the body; it reduces inflammation and is used as a pain relief to help them during their workouts.

Good Effects and Medical Enhancements

Marijuana also has ways of helping a lot of health issues with CBD, or cannabidoil. It has been known to treat children with epilepsy, Crohn’s Disease, and many other chronic health issues including anxiety disorders.

It also has other health benefits treating inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, seizures, Dravet syndrome, and many more.

Regular Use linked to Brain Changes

In short, many researchers believe that those who are most vulnerable to brain changes are people who start ingesting at a young age.

Still Questions

There are still so many questions to be answered about the effects of marijuana on the brain and body. Once the FDA decides to reschedule the drug to anything higher than a Schedule 1, there will be more ways for scientists and researchers to learn more about the recreational and medical effects and treatment.
