Tolerance – Grow Your Own Cannabis

Posted Posted in Blog

What is a Cannabis tolerance?

There are several reasons why people consume cannabis. When you start smoking cannabis, you make a habit of it. Like any other activities, the more you do it, you become addicted to it because you will want to feel the same sensation you felt the first time. Unfortunately, you don’t get the high like you used to. You start to wonder why. It’s a sad reality for cannabis user but this phase is when you developed a cannabis tolerance.

What is it all about?

If you think that you can’t enjoy cannabis like you used to before, relax. It is a normal phase that you have to go through. Don’t worry because developing tolerance is normal – it’s an act you develop for anything if you take enough of it. Well, it can be worse for some people – some can’t even take basic medication because they have high tolerance for that certain drug. By definition, tolerance means the act of enduring something. First time user tolerance is normally shorter and easily reach a breaking point.

Let’s take for example a person who drinks a lot. An alcohol drinker may get drunk only after consuming a lot of alcohol whereas a person that doesn’t drink may get drunk after a glass or two. This is because an alcohol drinker developed a high tolerance for alcohol. The same thing applies with cannabis. The more you smoke cannabis; you will develop high cannabis tolerance. When it comes to cannabis tolerance, every person’s tolerance varies greatly. This mainly depends on certain factors such as body mass index, sex, frequency of consumption and how strong the product is.

However, there are people who have naturally higher tolerance for cannabis. They don’t frequently smoke cannabis but require more to get the feeling of being high. There may be an explanation of it such as when you are taking other medicines or higher level of inflammation in your body can cause your body to build a higher tolerance for cannabis. Some people don’t get high during their first cannabis smoking can be cause by this or they have been inhaling properly or their body requires activating CB1 receptors in their brain first to process the foreign substance.

What is tolerance break length?

So, you’ve been smoking for quite some time now and you want to take a break. This is what you call a tolerance break length or a period of time when you completely abstain from smoking cannabis. Some people are also taking a tolerance break so they can decrease their tolerance level. It’s like resetting your body naturally so it will not recognize cannabis. Taking a tolerance break will help you make the whole experience better for you.

The moment you get back to smoking cannabis, it will seem like it’s your first time to smoke cannabis. How often should you take a tolerance break? The best suggestion is to take 2 day tolerance break up to 1 month tolerance break. This will give your body a chance to flush out excess cannabinoids. When you smoke again, it will feel like the first time or even more – you’ll get the optimum high feeling for only a minimal smoking of cannabis.
Getting high is great but when you smoke cannabis often, it becomes hard to reach the maximum level of high. If this happens to you, it may be the perfect time to take a tolerance break.

When you say drugs, you automatically think of crimes. Well, it is quite normal to link drug use to crimes. When people are under the influence of drugs, they can do terrible things – including committing crimes. It is expected because drugs affect some parts of your body, compelling you to do awful things. This is the main reason why it’s against the law to use abuse drugs in any form. The rate of drugs users’ has drastically increased every year causing the federal government to be alarmed. However, things changed when some states are legalizing marijuana.

How would legalizing drugs reduce crime?

Smoking of marijuana is prohibited and anyone caught can be subject to a lawsuit or worst, may face a felony case.  Fortunately, more and more states are legalizing the use of marijuana. Surprisingly, the public see this positively and more and more people are using marijuana given that they are in the 29 states wherein the use of Cannabis is legal. Due to this, the use of other drugs has significantly reduced. The consumption of marijuana increased after it has been legalized and as a result, there has been a decrease use of other drugs and specifically reduced binge drinking.

Colorado was one of the first states in America that legalizes recreational marijuana. It has been six years since then and Colorado crime rates after legalization has plummeted with 56% drop from 2012 to 2017. The number of marijuana-related crimes also are only a portion and will not significantly affect the overall crime rate of the state. Colorado also benefitted from the legalization of Cannabis in terms of Cannabis sales and tax revenues. The first 10 months of the last year’s Cannabis sales total had rose up to $1.28 billion. Aside from that, Cannabis legalization also affect positively the state’s tourism and employment rate.

However, Washington crime rate since legalization of Cannabis, specifically in the year 2016, has fallen down. Many pro-Cannabis groups took it as a positive sign towards the plant.

This drug use decrease means less crime and violence. There is a direct linkage between marijuana and reduce violence. If not for easy access to marijuana due to its legalization, more people are still using other addictive drugs. Furthermore, marijuana users may feel “high” but it’s a kind of high that offers a state of relaxation and euphoria. This kind of feeling reduces the risk of marijuana users to engage in any violent activities. This is how would crime rate drop after legalization of drugs, specifically Cannabis.

Everything You Need To Know About Cancer

When you say cancer, one thing that comes to your mind – it is deadly. Well, most cancer diseases are especially when not treated at an early stage. So, how does cancer begins? Cells are the basic unit of a human body. They grow and divide to make new cells. Cells that are damaged or too old, they die and new cells will replace them. However, there are instances when these cells start to grow uncontrollably. These cells may form a mass which is then called a tumor. This tumor can either be cancerous or benign.

When a tumor is cancerous, it will grow and spread to other parts of the body. However, some types of cancers do not form a tumor. These cancers include leukemia’s, lymphomas and myelomas.

The potential causes of cancers may be because of a person’s genetic or it can be triggered due to environmental and lifestyle factors. Everyone has risk factors for cancer especially those that are exposed to cancer causing substances. The higher the amount of cancer causing materials you are exposed to, the higher your chance you will develop cancer.

For example, if you have a breast cancer, you may feel a lump in your breast or a nipple discharge. Also, some cancer patients are not aware that they have cancer because unfortunately, cancer doesn’t show any signs or symptoms until the cancer is far advance.

Addiction – CBD

Cannabis and Addiction

So you have heard of the medical uses of Cannabis to different illnesses. And now you are planning to try it on your ailment. Before you decide to jump on the first Cannabiss sold to you, get to know first what Cannabis really is, why was it banned in some states of America, and how you could benefit from it.

What is Cannabis?

Cannabis is derived from either Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica, which are all a form of Indian hemp plants. Marijuana is the term frequently use to refer Cannabis. Other term includes hash, grass, pot, weed, reefer, dope, herb, mull, buddha, ganja, joint, stick, buckets, cones, skunk, hydro, yarndi, and hooch. Cannabis belongs to the depressant drugs which means it slows down your central nervous system and the transfer of messaging from your body to your brain.

Active ingredient of Cannabis are as follows:

#1 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

This is the major psychoactive component that makes up to 30% of Cannabis and the one that causes you the “high”. THC doesn’t really occur in its active form and is only a part of the THCA (THC acid). However, THCA will be converted into THC when burned or heated.

#2 Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD is another popular component of Cannabis which is mainly found in hemp. CBD have almost zero psychoactive effects and works as the opposite of THC.

#3 Cannabinol (CBN)

Cannabinol or CBN is actually the byproduct of THC after it is heated or exposed to oxygen. CBN contains a sedating effect, though not as strong as in THC.

#4 Terpenoids

Terpenoids is another component which is responsible for the unique aroma and flavor found in Cannabis.

Is Cannabis addictive?

Based on the active ingredients found in Cannabis, the answer is YES. But, still the addictiveness level of the plant depends on how you use it. Heating or burning Cannabis will naturally convert Tetrahydrocannabino acid (THCA) into THC which causes the “high” or the toxicity. THC activates the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. According to National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), THC affects the brain in such a way that it makes the person elated, ecstatic, and even numbness from pain.

High level of THC may cause addiction, impaired motor skills, and can even trigger symptoms of Schizophrenia and paranoia. However, studies have indicated that while THC gives you the “high”, it may be also responsible for the therapeutic effects of Cannabis.

On the other hand, CBD is the total opposite of THC in terms of toxicity. It doesn’t cause addiction and doesn’t react to cannabinoid receptors in the brain. However, it has one very important function; it works in concert with THC which means it boosts the therapeutic effects of THC while controlling its psychoactive effects. Not only in THC, CBD can also lessen the addictive effects of other drugs such as opioids and even alcohol.

Testosterone

How Marijuana Increase Testosterone Level

Testosterone is a hormone found both in men and women. However, they are much higher levels in men. Its production increases during puberty and starts to lower down after 30. Testosterone is responsible for several bodily functions in men – most especially for having high libidos or increase sex drives. The higher your testosterone level, the more active you are. Due to this, some men are looking for ways to boost their testosterone level. Fortunately, the use of marijuana is linked to having increase testosterone levels.

Contrary to what some studies that claimed the use of marijuana is directly linked to the decrease of testicular size; it is believed that men who had ever smoked marijuana had significantly higher testosterone levels. Aside, studies conducted before that shows men using Cannabis has resulted to a significant decrease of their testosterone level were also found out that the participants had history with substance abuse.

Moreover, Cannabinoids and testosterone studies were conducted by a group of medical experts in 2014 have shown that low levels of medical marijuana use will benefit sperm production and testosterone level in men; because of the positive effects it brought to Endocannabinoid system, the body system that plays a very important role in cell and hormone production.

So, does CBD lower testosterone in male? The answer to this question really depends on the person’s Cannabis consumption rate. Pots effect on testosterone is positive if the person uses Cannabis moderately. Compared to men who had never smoked marijuana, men who smoke marijuana at least once in their life actually has higher sperm concentration. However, the amount of marijuana intake should not be as frequent as you would want it to be. Or else, the component THC will intoxicate you and may harm your health. A boost on men’s sperm cell production and higher testosterone level can be associated with the use of a little bit of marijuana occasionally.

This goes to show that whatever thing that you consume in excess is always bad for your health. Well, if you are not in a hurry to have any kids, then you might not need to worry about consuming more marijuana. However, it is recommended that you give yourself some time off when using marijuana – just to be sure that your testicle size will not shrink, lower down your testosterone levels or worse, affect your sperm count. Use marijuana moderately and enjoy it without risking your health, or your future generation. The way you consume Cannabis also determines the amount of effect it causes you. Eating edible Cannabis or using its CBD oil is a better and healthier option compared to actually smoking it. The high effect caused by Cannabis happens slower when eating edibles than the latter.

Example of innate immunity includes:

  • Stomach acid
  • Skin
  • Mucus
  • Cough reflex

Passive immunity

Passive immunity is when your body gets an antibodies that is not its own. For example, an infant has a passive immunity because they are born with antibodies from their mother. It provides direct protection against an antigen but it will not last long. These antibodies disappear when an infant turns 6 months and older. When a baby produces its own antibodies, they no longer have a passive immunity.
