Allergies To Cannabis

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, March, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
allergies-to-cannabisThere are some people who claim that they are allergic to cannabis and when they say this in a group, they can sometimes be laughed at. And while it may seem like a strange idea to be allergic to something so good for you, it's absolutely possible to have a bad reaction to this plant. Considering that cannabis is a flower, there are people who have (and can develop) allergies to consuming cannabis. While unfortunate, it is possible. Even after years of prolonged use and contact with marijuana, a person can suddenly develop negative reactions to the plant, causing them to have to rethink their methods of ingesting the miracle plant.
 
Cannabis, as we are all aware of, is a plant that produces flowers. Not only do the plants produce pollen, which many people are allergic to, they contain other substances that cause negative reactions in some user's bodies. Thankfully, this reaction is not caused by the THC or CBD itself, but rather the material in the plant. If someone is having issues with cannabis, chances are that they have a ot of other plant allergies as well. Makes sense, right? The cannabis plant, like all other plants, releases allergens which gather in parts of the body (such as the nose), causing a huge release of white blood cells to attack the allergens. This causes the sniffly, sneezing reaction that one experiences with an allergic reaction to a plant.
 
If you do experience symptoms of a cannabis reaction, don't panic. The symptoms of this phenomenon are very rare and only effect a few people. Ranging from sniffling and sneezing to dermatitis (a red rash that afflicts the skin where the plant touched), cannabis allergies can usually just be treated with over the counter products (although if you notice swelling in your face and neck, you should immediately seek medical help). And as said above, there has never been proof showing that the reaction was to any of the beneficial substances in cannabis, but rather to parts of the plant itself. When given extracts, the allergic symptoms seemed to decrease.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, March, 25th 2014 by THCFinder
mmj-bill-in-fl-passesFlorida’s House Appropriations Committee has given unanimous approval to House Bill 843, a proposal to legalize cannabis extracts for medical purposes.
 
The measure, which was introduced by Republican Representative Matt Gaetz, now heads to theHouse Judiciary Committee, where its passage will send it to the full House.
 
If approved, House Bill 843 would provide a legal defense to those in the state who possess and use cannabis extracts for medical purposes, provided they receive a recommendation from a physician.
 
“We have evidence of benefits,” says Representative Cary Pigman, an emergency room physician. “We have no evidence of harm.”
 
The committee also voted in favor of a $1 million study to research the benefits of cannabis in treating seizure disorders.

Cannabis And Creativity

cannabis-and-creativity
It's no mystery that stoners tend to be quite creative. Whether they're writing songs or painting photos, people who use marijuana really seem to have a great hold on the arts. Many people accept this fact as a general stoner stereotype when in fact there are substances in marijuana that actually do enhance the creative process, giving a more solid backing to the creative stoner. Pot, after all, isn't just about getting high. This plant can really help us to find new ideas and accept alternate possibilities to what we previously thought.
 
There was a study conducted in 2010 by Morgan, Rothwell showed that marijuana's primary property is it's ability to increase the hyper-priming process. This process is what happens when your mind makes connections between two seemingly unrelated things, also known as the "Aha!" moment. Stoners seem to be able to make these connections faster then non-smokers, adding more weight to the idea of the creative stoner. In addition, marijuana also ups the production of dopamine in the brain, which gives stoners the calm euphoric feeling they love so much. With this calm feeling comes the absence of the "inner filter", or the small voice inside your head that critiques you while you're painting, writing, or performing. Without your inner personal criticism, the creative process is allowed to flow more freely, producing more artistic results.
 
Research done on the subject of marijuana and creativity also says that using cannabis blurs the lines between the five senses, which allows the user to be more in awe of their surroundings and the art that they produce. So basically, marijuana creates a sense of wonder, which may actually be negative occasionally, causing the user to think their art is better when it might not be. Usually, however, the product of high art tends to be much more appealing to the eye as compared to not-stoned art and stoners themselves seem to be much more in tune with the creative, more colorful side of things.
 
Marijuana may enhance the creative process but there needs to be some base there as well. Being creative takes a lot of really hard work and practice so don't get discouraged if you're not pumping out masterpieces the first time that you sit down with a paintbrush and a bong. Take your time and practice your chosen work of art. The marijuana only enhances what's already there. And while the studies on this subject seem to be few and far between (not to mention they disagree with each other), stoners know that smoking definitely does something to make the user more in tune with themselves and the world around them, thus giving them an upper hand when it comes to creating art!
