Smoking Hazards – CBD

How to Minimize the Smoking Hazards of Cannabis

Cannabis is known to have medicinal properties and was even widely used by ancient people in treating certain illnesses. In fact, the CBD oil, an extract from Cannabis plant, is known to have a great amount of medicinal properties; minus the toxicity. However, Cannabis is not considered an illicit drug for no reasons. While Cannabis contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidants, it also has a component that causes you toxicity or the feeling of getting high. And when used in excess, you will develop dependence on it which may leads to many health hazards.

What are the effects of getting high in Cannabis?

If you have smoked Cannabis before, then you must be familiar with the weird yet wonderful sensation that you get after smoking the weed. Some likes the feeling of getting high as it makes them feel relaxed and problem-free. However, Cannabis also gives you the following effects of getting high:

  1. Increased heart rate
  2. Cotton or dry mouth
  3. Weed dick among men
  4. Dependence
  5. Slow perception
  6. Sleepiness

Long term side effects of Marijuanas includes:

  1. Hallucinations
  2. Paranoia
  3. Schizophrenia
  4. Decline in intellectual and verbal ability

How to cut down marijuanas effects?

If you are using marijuana for medical purposes more than recreational, then you can’t totally stop smoking it can you? Instead you can choose to cut down your Cannabis consumption to minimize the smoking hazards it causes. So how are you going to do that? Check out below.

#1 Put less Cannabis on your joint or pipe

You can still smoke Cannabis and enjoy the benefits it gives you, but do it in minimal amount. This way, you will not get high or get toxic right away. Aside from, you will be able to save more Cannabis since you are only using a small amount per joint.

#2 Increase the gap between smokes

Avoid smoking weed back to back. Teach yourself to leave gaps in between your smoke. Then lengthen this gap over time.

#3 Do not mix tobacco with Cannabis

Cannabis smoking is dangerous enough. But mixing with another equally dangerous product will only increase its hazards.

#4 Avoid caffeine when smoking Cannabis

Coffees, teas, alcoholic beverages, and sodas will counter the medicinal effects of Cannabis and maximize your chances of getting stoned.

#5 Exercise regularly

Exercise will make you sweat, which means it is a great way to remove the toxins brought by Cannabis in your body. The more you sweat after smoking Cannabis, the less toxic you will be.

#6 The lesser you cut, the better

About 75% of individuals who smoke or use Cannabis in any way experienced withdrawal symptoms; and the symptoms are worse to women and to those who drinks alcohol. Be careful as the withdrawal symptoms from Cannabis smoking can be very intense. So if you want to minimize the smoking hazards caused by Cannabis, cut down less amounts each day.
