Marijuana And Aggression
Violence and aggression are a large part of the society that we live in. As we're constantly surrounded by war and negative messages, it's difficult to keep calm and relaxed. A lot of people have trouble containing their anger, as they just don't have the time to beat up on punching bags or get any sort of physical exertion (One of the most healthy ways to deal with aggression). But if you don't have time to exercise, what other option is there other than medicine?
Marijuana is an incredible way to just chill. One hit of this magical herb and not only does your adrenaline level plunge, but it becomes hard to remember what you were angry about in the first place. While marijuana is actually a stimulant, it does have sedating effects on the users. Anyone who's had a bad day and comes home to a packed bowl knows that cannabis is a great way to just unwind at the end of a long, tiring day.
However, there is a negative side to this argument. Some believe that since some smokers experience extreme paranoia, anxiety, and fear, this could lead to aggressive outbursts. This tends to happen more in young smokers, who have other issues factoring in to their aggressive behavior. In these younger users, the cannabis can actually promote an aggressive response if there are other emotional low points in the person's life. However, it isn't just cannabis that causes the aggressive emotions. Those that are panicky before smoking will get even worse after smoking.
Smoking should be an enjoyable experience. If you experience anxiety and stress when you're high, you need to be trying a different strain. Look for indicas that will chill you out and make you be more concerned with how comfortable your couch is, rather than what's going on with schoolwork or friends. Also, younger smokers need to be careful when ingesting marijuana. While I do believe that everyone should be able to smoke, there needs to be more research done on the effects of marijuana on adolescents.
The perfect blunt for this wonderful Sunday

New Study: Cannabidiol Can Help Cigarette Smokers Quit
A new placebo-controlled study published in last month’s issue of the journal Addictive Behaviors has found that cannabidiol – a cannabis compound – can significantly reduce the number of cigarettes consumed by those wishing to quit.
For the study, participants were given cannabidiol (CBD) through an inhaler – the CBD was derived entirely from the actual cannabis plant. Participants were separated into two groups, one which received the inhaler containing CBD, and one which contained a placebo.
Researchers found that those in the placebo group showed no difference in the amount that they smoked. However, those in the CBD group smoked, on average, 40% less after just a 1-week period.
“We found that CBD seems to reduce the salience of cues. It also can reduce anxiety and may affect a memory process called ‘reconsolidation,’ which is where when a memory of the reward of smoking is re-activated by seeing someone smoking, it is rendered vulnerable to destruction”, says Dr. Celia Morgan, co-author of the study. “CBD might mean these positive smoking memories are gradually erased,”
BHO Explosions On The Rise
Butane hash oil has been around for quite some time but only recently has gained popularity among the young and stupid. With two totally different opinions on the benefits of marijuana, some people seem to be getting confused to how to properly obtain BHO. The amount of explosions due to stupid people trying to make their own shatter is on the rise. With no one around to educate these people, the number of injuries resulting from BHO explosions will continue to grow. People really need to pay attention on how to PROPERLY get BHO out of their marijuana.
The biggest thing to remember about BHO... Don't EVER make it indoors. Keeping butane fumes locked in a small space while simultaneously using a stove is the stupidest idea ever. Even without saying that marijuana is involved, the lack of common sense that goes in to planning these BHO runs is unbelievable. People don't mix bleach and ammonia in small, cramped spaces. What gives individuals the idea that butane gas isn't dangerous and extremely flammable? Trying to make BHO inside is asking for disaster.
Even those who are attempting to run BHO outdoors are blowing themselves up. A 25-year-old in Santa Rosa got busted with over 100 pounds of marijuana in different forms when her backyard hash lab exploded, scorching her backyard and some of the surrounding buildings. She was arrested and charged with manufacturing a controlled substance. There were other individuals in the house at the time, one of which was released from the scene and authorities believe that there was more involved but managed to escape before police arrived.
What it comes down to is that only professionals that are educated in the subject should attempt to be making BHO. It is a dangerous action and people need to be cautious. The only way that we can prevent more people from hurting themselves is to try to educate them before they try to make shatter by taking instructions from a YouTube video. Not saying that all of the BHO makers that record their processes are idiots but most of the videos shown online of people making BHO are in bad conditions, little light, and cramped spaces.
Butane hash oil is a benefit for patients that are in extreme pain. The highly concentrated THC is amazing for pain. Unfortunately, these people blowing themselves up looks extremely bad for the concentrated THC community. By making marijuana look like a cousin of meth, the media and anti-cannabis parties are able to use this as a weapon against medical marijuana, regardless of the positive outcome for patients. BHO is an excellent way to medicate but this reoccurring trend of stupidity will only bring negative attention
