Life Hack: Smoke Weed to Beat the Summer Heat… Really
Unlike other substances, smoking weed actually does make you cool. Literally. Don’t let yourself roast in your AC-deficient apartment, just get baked and you’ll find it helps you stay cool when you most need to. That’s right, getting high lowers your body temperature.
Did you know hot drinks cool you down and cold drinks heat you up? Some remedies for the heat don’t seem to make sense, but others, like cannabis, are downright unexpected. You read that right, hot drinks cool you down. The heat from a hot cup of tea or coffee activates special receptors on you tongue that detect heat. These TRPV1 receptors communicate with the rest of your body and activate a cooling response from the inside out. This cooling response lowers you body temperature more than the hot drink heats it up. In a similar way chili peppers also activate TRPV1 receptors and cause the same cooling response.
For this reason hot drinks must have become popular in tropical climates like India where people drink cup after cup of hot tea and eat some of the spiciest foods in the world. Guess what other substance is also quite popular in India: cannabis.
