Effect of weed?

#1  Postby Kyx » Aug 31, 2017 8:29 pm

What effect does smoking weed have on the human body?

If someone has a family history of heart related illnesses should they smoke weed?

cannabis has a calming effect, especially the indica varieties. it's a good muscle relaxant. as such, it's possibly quite helpful to a heart. probably not so helpful for someone with bradycardia (slow heart), could slow it a wee bit too much.

It's Satan's drug! One puff from the marijuana and you're hooked! That means you're a hooker! You will sell your body for more drugs! You will kill your mother! This it ALL TRUE!

You're a lot better off if you smoke than drink.

Smoking anything's a bad idea - there are much, much safer ways of consuming things.

cannabis greenery tastes quite nice. try a small amount. chew on it. it has a peppery after-taste. finely chopped it makes a good condiment to sprinkle on food. hash can be pounded into a fine powder and used as a spice. unlike smoking a joint, the effects are slow to arrive, but deeper and longer lasting when ingested.

To be fair, I eat babies when I don't have the munchies. I see it as a public service, as well as a tasty main course.

If it's fresh, be sure to decarboxylate it first.

Have you tried cooking babies into cannabis edibles? That could be a big seller in east Asia. :teef: :shifty:
