Smoke Weed Lose Weight

Smoke Weed Lose Weight

Smoke weed loose weight by following the study done by the University of Nebraska.  When smoking weed, people are quite curious about the medicinal or recreational thing that could benefit them from smoking it but have you ever wondered if in such a way you would either lose or gain weight from smoking weed?

A recent study by the University of Nebraska, Harvard’s school of Public Health and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center indicates that weed smokers, on average, have smaller waists and higher levels of “good cholesterol” than non weed smokers even though they get a “munchies” high. There is still no research that tells what is it about weed that is useful in regulating blood sugar or how it can help accelerates metabolism.

About Munchies And Losing Weight By Smoking Weed

I found this article on the internet that shared a step by step guide on how you could manage your diet while having that indulgent appetite that you get while you’re on munchies. The theory of the ability to smoke weed lose weight is very intriguing.

Follow these steps and then add weed.

1. You can never be too prepared.

Based on pg.217 of the guide ” How to be a Pothead Without Gaining Weight”, ” The key to not eating like a dog with opposable thumbs is to prepare your snacks in advance of getting high. If you buy a crate of blueberries, you will eat that crate, but at least you wont be eating a crate of donuts.

Dipping Milano cookies in peanut butter. Or toasting taco shells, breaking them up, and making nachos out of them.

Eating ramen noodles raw, or making s’mores and substituting Cool Whip for marshmallows. Or eating a whole bag of marshmallows in one mouthful. That’s dangerous and best reserved for kids on YouTube. Only idiots would pot their marijuana fueled exploits online.”

Smoke Weed Lose Weight Fast

It is best to buy and stock healthy food in your fridge so when you hit the munchies, all that you’re going to eat would be what is available in your stock.

2.Utilize the extra daylight and warmer weather of summer and be active.

It is also said that getting munchies is very dependent to where and when you smoke it. Summer is a season when you can enjoy being active and getting high. Do activities like going to museums, movies or being on nature. Days smoking is better in that aspect.
This way, you could lose a few more pounds. I also noticed that when I am in a high, I feel more focused in doing my workout and it feels good when you sweat.

3. Get a vaporizer.

When you need to smoke outside, it is best to use a vaporizer so people wouldn’t notice you are lighting a weed.

4. Or just have a baby.

If you can’t get a vaporizer, you my want to have a baby bong so you could have a way to smoke outside.

5. Smoke, then fall immediately asleep.

Sometimes, it a pair of soft pillows would be all you need!

6.Utilize your social anxiety.

This is applicable for people who may be petrified that they might commit an embarrassing social blunder while smoking in a large group. This is because terror and anxiety tend to eradicate hunger by twisting your stomach into knots.

7.Forget all the other advise and eat what you want.

This is the best!

Rogers Advice For Smoking Weed To Loose Weight

Is is advisable to stay away from meat and seafood. “You really start to think about what you’re eating and how a lot of crustaceans are just bugs of the sea. Also the slipperiness of clams and oysters is a total freakout.

Smoke Weed Loose Weight

You can never be sure that you won’t get sick, pot’s paranoia will make you think you’re going to get sick. In this way, eating vegetarian is always the way to go when you are high because at the worst what you’ll get is something that is bland. Its unlikely that vegetarian dish will spoil your stomach or give you a piece of gristle to chew on and then send your mind to bemoaning the factory farming industry.”

Yay! So go ahead, light that thing, smoke and enjoy that munchies hit!!!

Weed May Treat Bipolar Disorder

Treating Bipolar Disorder With Weed

Treating Bipolar disorder with weed is new clinically but is catching the attention of medical professional around the globe.

Bipolar disorder may be one of the world’s oldest known illnesses with records dating back thousands of years.

But today, doctors are challenged when it comes to treating the condition. The challenge is drug abuse; a problem that affects only 6% of the general population yet plagues more than half of all patients with bipolar disorder.

Treating Bipolar Disorder With WeedWeed + Bipolar Disorder = Normal

Interestingly, weed appears to be the drug of choice for these patients, which has led many to see a possible treatment of this disorder. Formerly known as “Manic Depression,” the symptoms of bipolar disorder may include poor temper control, poor judgement, little need for sleep, reckless behavior, lack of self control and sufferers being easily distracted, among other things. Millions suffer from these symptoms every day, and many of them use marijuana to treat their disorder.

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder causes drastic mood swings, alternating between states of depression and mania. Mania can range from moderate levels of energy and excitement to symptoms of psychosis, such as erratic and delusional behaviors.

Researchers say that approximately 4% of the population will fit the criteria of bipolar disorder at some point in their lives. And while the underlying cause has yet to be identified, there are a variety of treatment options available.

The first-line of treatment is lithium which acts to reverse symptoms of mania, but other mood-stabilizers (anticonvulsants) and anti-psychotics are commonly used as well.

On the other hand, current pharmaceutical treatments subject patients to a wide range of side-effects, which can sometimes outweigh the benefits of the treatments themselves. As a result, many are beginning to turn to medical marijuana – a rarely recommended treatment option that is gradually becoming more noticed as research progresses.

How Can Weed Help?

Marijuana acts on the  endocannabinoid system– a homeostatic regulator that is present in all humans. Interestingly, research suggests that certain cannabinoids found in marijuana (i.e. THC and CBD) may have significant mood-stabilizing properties that could be beneficial for patients with the disorder.

Studies have shown that THC, under certain conditions, can have anti-anxiety, anti-hypnotic and antidepressant effects, resulting in improvements in mood and overall well-being. CBD seems to counter the psychoactive effects of THC and may also possess anti-anxiety, anti-hypnotic and anti-convulsant properties of its own.

Researchers have also identified a link between marijuana use and cognitive improvements in patients with schizophrenia – a finding could explain evidence of similar improvements in bipolar disorder.

Treating Bipolar Disorder With Weed

A number of recent studies have set out to determine the effects of marijuana use on patients with bipolar disorder and have provided some thought-provoking findings.

In 2010, researchers at the University of Oslo in Norway published the results of a study conducted on 133 bipolar patients. What they found was that patients who used cannabis regularly actually performed better than non-users on tests of verbal fluency and learning, although improvements in learning were not statistically significant.

In another study, published in 2012 by researchers at the Zucker Hillside Hospital in New York, regular marijuana use was linked to higher levels of attention, processing speed and memory among the 200 bipolar patients that the researchers followed over a 9 year span. Interestingly, the study also found that they were still more engaged in social activities than non-users. Furthermore, the study identified no significant differences between cannabis use and independent living or work impairments.

Anecdotal Evidence

Despite the overall lack of clinical research available on marijuana use and bipolar outcomes, case reports provide an abundance of evidence that seem to support its usefulness.

study published in 1998 by Harvard university documented 5 cases in which patients obtained major relief from their bipolar-related symptoms through the use of marijuana. One of these patients, a 47-year-old woman, found weed to be more effective than other drugs in controlling her manic episodes. “A few puffs of this herb and I can be calm… this drug seems harmless compared to other drugs I have tried, including tranquilizers and lithium.”

Treating Bipolar Disorder With Weed

In another case, the husband of a bipolar sufferer told of numerous ways that weed seemed to help his wife in dealing with the disorder. “My wife functions much better when she uses marijuana. When she is hypomanic, it relaxes her, helps her sleep, and slows her speech down. When she is depressed and would otherwise lie in bed all day, the marijuana makes her more active… Lithium is also effective, but it doesn’t always keep her in control.”

These cases were also cited alongside others in a review study conducted by a team of British researchers. The review, published in 2005 in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, presented evidence from a 1996 report that described 5 cases in which marijuana seemed to have a direct effect in countering depression. The researchers also cited 2 surveys conducted in 2003 which found that 15-27% of medical marijuana patients in California were prescribed the drug for various mood disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and ADHD.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

What is weed wax and shatter and why does it get you so high?

Things have changed regarding marijuana since I started toking in the 70’s. Nowadays there is lingo such as Shatter, Wax, Honeycomb, Crumble, Sap, Budder, Pull-and-Snap, Taffy, Dabbing, Vaping and others, WTF? These are just some of the slang words that cannabis extracts or concentrates have earned through their popularity in recent years. Marijuana concentrates are a complicated issue in the ever-expanding weed marketplace nowadays.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

For those of you who are new to the concentrates game, a cannabis extract is any oil that concentrates weed’s cannabinoids like THC and CBD. These concentrates are extremely potent (they typically hover around 75% but can allegedly go as high as 90% ) and are also extremely difficult to heat up. Concentrates are the product of  cannabinoid extraction processes using a solvent such as butane. The goal of concentrates is to eliminate all plant matter and extract the resin from the plant matter.

Concentrates are made by mixing cannabis plant matter with a solvent. Then, the solution is usually strained and purged to remove all plant matter and any dangerous solvents from the product. Once the extract is purged of the solvent, usually butane, you’ll generally have a shatter-like oil. Agitating the oil through various methods makes this into a wax. It can be a dangerous process since flammables are used, so leave it to the professionals my friends.

What Is Shatter

Shatter is the product of butane hash oil extraction. It’s achieved through skillful purging of the butane and cannabis solution, often employing the use of a vacuum. The product is a clear, often yellow or orange hue. It’s very malleable, almost like taffy.

Shatter, with its beautiful amber glass transparency has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality – the consistency and texture of oil comes down to different factors entirely. The reason shatter comes out clear has to do with the molecules which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance.

Heat And Moisture

Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap). Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap or taffy”

What Is Weed Wax

Wax is also the product of a butane hash oil extraction. It’s often the product of a failed shatter extract, as there are still residual fats, lipids, and possibly butane left due to improper purging techniques. Weed Wax refers to the softer, opaque oils that have lost their transparency after extraction. Unlike those of transparent oils, the molecules of weed wax crystallize as a result of agitation, often through whipping the oil into a more stable consistency. Light can’t travel through irregular molecular densities, and that refraction leaves us with a solid, non-transparent oil.

Just as transparent oils span between shatter and sap, wax can also take on different consistencies based on heat, moisture, and the texture of the oil before it is purged (the process in which residual solvents are removed from the product). Runny oils with more  moisture tend to form gooey waxes often called “Budder,” while the harder ones are likely to take on a soft, brittle texture known as “crumble” or “honeycomb.” The term “wax” can be used to describe all of these softer, solid textures.

Shatter can turn to wax

Sometimes shatter will ‘wax-up after being stored over a period of time. The agitation that turns shatter to wax is occurring either because of residual solvent trying to evaporate or because of terpenes trying to evaporate. Shatter is slightly unstable and tends to degrade into budder over time.

THCA molecules tend to crystallize by coming together, but the viscous nature of the oil slows this down. Still, it eventually happens to a lot of shatter at room temperature or higher. Refrigeration is key for preserving extracts, but it needs to be done right. Improper handling upon thawing can lead to the introduction of moisture and quick  degradation of all your product.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

There’s a reason cannabis extraction is now as big a part of competitive Cannabis Cups as flowers; the knowledge and care that goes into extracting oils is as complicated as the art of growing the plants they are derived from. Every step of the extraction process demands a balance of art and science, beginning with the selection of starting material and ending with the purging and storage process.

Dabbing, Vaping and more

There are many ways to consume concentrates. There are many options. It can be overwhelming to someone who just wants to give it a go, especially when it comes to purchasing equipment costing $100-plus. Also, not all ways of consuming concentrates are created equal, they all have their pros and cons for different types of users.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Vaporizing

Vaporizing is one of the healthiest methods for inhaling marijuana concentrates. You can vaporize almost any form of concentrate. Many kinds of vaporizers are sold online and at head  shops. Vaporizers are specifically manufactured to heat THC to the optimal vaporization point so you can experience the purest high without unnecessary waste or toxins.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Dabbing

Dabbing is quickly becoming one of the most popular methods for consuming marijuana concentrates. Special ‘dab rigs‘ provide all of the required attachments you will need to “dab” with. You can also purchase bong and water pipe attachments at most head shops that replace the bowl with a “skillet” or “hash nail.

To dab, heat up the skillet using a torch, drop the concentrate onto the heated glass surface and then inhale the smoke through the chambers of the bong or rig. Dabbing burns concentrate at temperatures very close to THC’s vaporization point — making dabs one of the healthier smoking methods. However, dabbing often results in a very intense high, so we recommend only those who are veterans with marijuana to try this specific method.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Bowls

You can find concentrate bowl attachments for ‘bongs and ‘bubblers in most head shops or online. Place the extract at the bottom of the concentrate bowl and then heat it using a stick, known as a glass wand, which vaporizes the concentrate upon contact. Glass wands are just one form of the burning tools used for smoking concentrate out of bowls. Other heating methods fail to vaporize efficiently, which causes combustion and carcinogenic smoke.

These alternatives include soldering irons, butane lighters and hemp wicks. While hemp wicks don’t vaporize, they can help you avoid the harmful chemicals released from butane lighters.

This simplified explanation of oil consistencies and how to consume them is only a scratch on the surface of this product cannabis extracts, and it’s exciting to imagine how much further science and technology will carry its potential.
