Cannabis & Working Out

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder

This is a subject that has two very different sides and very minimal information for either one. With more stoners becoming health conscious, the rate of gym rat smokers is climbing. Cannabis is a large part of a lot of healthy people's lives. Not just smoking, but juicing cannabis has been shown to have very positive effects on the body. But is THC hurting the user's workout routine or not?
 
As always, smoking anything can hurt the lungs. However, since there are so many ways to ingest cannabis, smoke never even has to enter an athlete's lungs. Some people that work out even say that sativa dominant strains assist them with working out and allow them to focus better on the task at hand, whether it be the rowing machine or lifting weights. From personal experience, I would say that marijuana helps me work out, for sure. It allows you to actually focus on your workout, to slow it down so you're actually enjoying it. Since cannabis relieves pain, it also prevents the muscles from hurting too badly.
 
On the other hand, there are scientific studies (rather than personal reports) that marijuana inhibits your workout. You don't push yourself as hard because marijuana makes your muscles lazier. In addition, cannabis increases cardiac frequency and has been shown to lower performance. It effects reaction times, steadiness, and psychomotor skills. While these studies may not be completely up to date, it is scientific data. It's difficult to determine who's right in this situation.
 
Some strains, such as sativa dominants, could possibly help out at the gym. There are patients who focus better while stoned and that could definitely benefit in a tough workout. On the other hand, actually smoking marijuana might hurt the capacity of the lungs and should be ingested another way. These days, that's not really an issue anymore. Edibles and vaporizers allow users to avoid smoking all together. More research needs to be done on the positive effects of marijuana and working out, as most information on the internet is mostly negative, aside from forum responses.

What Is A Fair Tax For Marijuana Sales?

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-taxSomething that has always worried me is that when marijuana legalization is implemented, it will be taxed so high that the transition won’t be as successful as it could be. One of the biggest arguments that we have made for so many years in support of marijuana legalization is that it would demolish the black market. However, that will only work if legal marijuana prices are better than the black market prices for the same thing. Most people aren’t going to drastically change their spending habits to pay a significantly higher price.
 
I think it’s going to be hard to find a marijuana tax rate that pleases everyone. If it’s too low it won’t generate the revenue that was promised to the government, which opponents will point to early and often. On the other hand, too high of a tax will push customers away from the legal market and into the black market. What do readers think is a fair rate? I personally think that proposals for a 30%+ tax on marijuana is way too high in Colorado and Washington. I would personally feel more comfortable at about 10%, which is still very high compared to other taxed products.
