Is weed bad for you is a fundamental question in terms of using weed for your own purpose. There are for sure a lot of people who are afraid of marijuana effects and what can happen if they using marihuna or other products of cannabis with psycadelic ingredients like the Cannabinoid THC. On the other Side we have an big hype going around the media supported from comercial pop, hip hop, rap stars who want to preserve their bad image.
Food for the brain and food for the body. Is weed bad for you?
As mentioned in the Pros and Cons of cannabis use, it is substantial to use it responsibly and with consciousness. As anything used ruthless and too much can harm you. And what is too much is subjective. For some less and for others more. In a medicinal (marihuana) and relaxation point of view.
If someone eat too much or the wrong food or too much from wrong food, it would probably harm him. And if you know the numbers, there are 100 thousands of people every year who died because of the wrong handling with their daily food. Comparatively on this, weed is same dangerous than food.
But you will never read, that someone has died because he was smoking too much weed. Of course, if he drove with the car and slept away and died in car crash for example. But not of the marijuana effects or because of the marijuana side effects.
If someone is going to use cannabis the first time, there are a few things he might should know and consider.
Weed is not the same as weed. That means, there exist a lot of different varieties of cannabis respectively types of weed. And as result a huge variety of cannabis products as hash and oil.
Every phenotype of cannabis plant contains different concentrations of cannabinoids as THC and CBD. Some Weed is growing outdoor some indoor, some on hydroculture some on soil. Some has more sativa in it some more indica or ruderalis.
This huge variety of different cannabis types contains, depending on the variety, THC from 5% up to about 30 %. And with it different effects of smoking.
This all you should know and consider. Here lies one of the dangers in it and why maybe is weed bad for you. Because if you are not used to smoke weed and you smoke to much or to strong weed, it might knock you out.
What you should do if you are smoking weed the first time or a new weed for the first time:
Take your time and do not puff too fast or too much. Just take a small puff and wait. Let it come to you and relax. Do not rush you. With inhaling normally takes about 5 minutes until the effect. The most common mistake in this matter is, to smoke too much because the user think he feels nothing and he can take some more. After 5-10 min, the effects of smoking of all puffs he made comes around and greet him very intense.
But don´t panic. Everything is gonna be allright.
It’s just a matter of time, and after about 30 minutes the strongest part of the weed effects
subsides again. Carrying precautionary with something sweet to increase your blood sugar level again. To lower the blood sugar level is one of the health benefits of marijuana, if you blood sugar level is too high. But if not, it can affect your circulation.
Reason Nr. 2 Wrong handling, is this possible?
Yes, it is. Every person is different and has different Life Circumstances and conditions. Some know how to treat themselves others don’t. Some don’t know what they need and what not and when is too much. With the right mindset and knowledge, the usage of cannabis is one of the greatest gifts for human kind from Nature or God, how ever you call it. But if you use it too much or wrong all its positive effects convert into its opposite. Too much is a question of a true personal matter. So be true to yourself and don’t let pushing you into using it. Not from someone else and not from yourself.
Reason Nr. 3 The Self Fulfilled Prophecy
What could a cannabis users happen nowadays?
As we know from the previous posts, there are much less dangers in cannabis use then in the most common legal drugs and with it comes a huge amount of health benefits. Of Course we talk about regulated use of persons they are 18 years and older. Lets say a person is interested in using cannabis or decide to use cannabis for his own purpose, relaxation and meditation or simply need medical marihuana –
cannabis as medicine.
He is forced to go to his dealer on the blackmarket if he already has one. On this blackmarket he gets in contact with a lot of heavy drugs which are really dangerous. By the way, that is the only reason why marijuana is considered as a gateway drug. And not because the cannsbis user would like to take heavy drugs after he smoke weed. It is just because he get in touch with it because the only way he can buy his weed is the blackmarket.
The other consequence of this blackmarket is the quality of weed. This weed really could be bad for you. Because the Drug Dealer is not the only link in the chain. He bought the weed from a Wholesaler and the wholesaler bought it from the smuggler and the smuggler from the producer. In this supply chain everyone wants earn money as much as possible. On the one hand because its an dangerous job and on the other to compensate losses due to confiscation. The result is that the distributors and dealers cut the cannabis product with chemicals. The most consument actually did not know that they smoke weed which is contaminated with chemicals and a lot of them get sick because of it. In one way or another.
The Gouvernment made those laws and created the Blackmarket with it. The same one who tells us not to use marijuana because it is so dangerous created a crime scene which only exist becaus of the law against the human right to use a plant for his own. With that they bring us in contatct with real dangerous drugs, gangster and mafia and cutet cannabis products wich is really dangerous for health.
Those who preach to protect and patronize us with laws, create the real danger from which they specify to protect us. The Self Fulfilled Prophecy was created.
Reason Nr. 4 The law is on yours side? Think twice!
There are so many things in this capitalist economy, imperialism, democratic world in which you legally can buy and consume things which are scientifically and statistically very dangerous for the people in short or long term.
I just mention that to show you the relation between cannabis, which is illegal and legal stuff which is proven much more dangerous and causes the death of thousands of people every year. The public discourse to criminalize cannabis is because it is dangerous for the people. As mentioned in my previous post “History of the marijuana prohibition”,where you can find the real reasons of the criminalization of cannabis.
The threat about the criminalization of marijuana is the law by itself. Normal People as you and I who decided to use cannabis for his own personal reason get criminalized by doing so. Not because we harm anyone in any matter. And not because we harm yourself. On the contrary. I used cannabis for about 20 years regularly and I am healthy. I would say i am healthier then the average people in my age. And I had a lot of benefits of cannabis products.
Nobody wants to go to prison. Comprehensible, then nobody want to lose his freedom. And the risk to harm the health of your life in jail, mentally and physically are huge. But we, the people do not choose this laws which are against our right to self determination and self-responsibility. They are made by politicians.
We, the humans have no problem to live with cannabis and we are not in danger because of that plant. On The Contrary. We have so much benefits from it and the real danger exist just because of the law and its consequences.
The only solution is the legalization of marijuana and legalization of cannabis throughout.
