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!!!

Top 10 Diseases Where Medical Marijuana Has Impact

TOP 10 DISEASES WHERE SMOKING WEED HAS IMPACT

Medical Marijuana used in recreational settings shows weed smokers benefit from it. So here are the top 10 diseases where use of marijuana can be benefited.

  1. AIDS/HIV

Also known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome / Human Immunodeficiency Virus.

Scientists believe that the HIV started with a certain type of chimpanzee  in Central Africa which carries Simian Immunodeficiency Virus (the chimpanzee version of aids) .

Human hunted the chimpanzees for meat and came into contact with their infected blood that transformed into HIV.

Research shows that people with AIDS/HIV who smoked marijuana have better sleep, gained appetite, have better moods and showed less neuropathic pain.

  1. Alzheimer’s

This is a disease caused by brain cell death. This disease is also known as the most common type of DEMENTIA or the loss of mental ability due to the increasing death of cells in the brain.

Although, studies show that it is common on people 65 of age and older, approximately 200,000 individuals are under the age of 65. Someone develops this disease in every 67 seconds in the US.

Smoking marijuana and some of the plant’s chemicals have been used to help patients with Alzheimer gain weight and it also lessens some troubled or nervous behaviours of the patients.

Researchers found it slowed the development of protein deposits in the brain which scientists think may be a part of what causes Alzheimer’s although no one really knows what causes the disease.

  1. Arthritis

Arthritis  is informally known as joint pain or joint disease.

There was a study made on 58 patients who uses the by-product of marijuana found that they had less pain and that they can sleep better. Another review of studies said that marijuana may help fight pain-causing inflammation.

  1. Asthma

Is a “chronic inflammatory disease of the airway” that causes shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, coughing and wheezing.

Studies are contradicting, but some early finding suggests that it reduced exercise-induced asthma.  Other cell studies showed that smoking weed could dilate human airways, but some patients experienced tight feeling on their chest and throat.

  1. Cancer

Is a name given to a collection of related diseases which can start anywhere in the body which is made up of trillions of cells.

As a normal process, human cells prow and divide to form new cells as the body needs them and when cells grow old or become damaged, they die and new cells take place.

When cancer develops, this orderly process breaks down. As cells become old or damaged, they survive when they should die and new cells form when they are not needed. These extra cells can divide without stopping and may form growths called TUMORS.

Animal studies show that some marijuana extracts may kill cancer cells and some other cell studies show that it may stop cancer growth. With mice, THC improved the impact of radiation on cancer cells.

Smoking marijuana can also prevent nausea on chemotherapy patients.

  1. Chronic Pain

Is a pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Signals of pain remain active in the nervous system and can also last for years. Chronic pain has impact on both physical and emotional state of a person.

The physical pain felt by the body, in the long run can cause depression, anger, anxiety and fatigue which interact in complex ways with chronic pain making it worse and can decrease the body’s production of natural pain killers; to add up, such negative feelings may increase the level of substances that extend sensations of pain, resulting to a dangerous cycle of pain for the person.

People widely used cannabinoids for pain relief in the 1800s due to some animal and human studies which show that cannabinoids have a substantial analgesic effect.

Other medicine based on cannabis such as “SATIVEX” are being tested on patients with multiple sclerosis and used to treat cancer pain. This drug has been approved in Canada and in some European countries. Scientists also show a 30% in reduction in pain involving 56 human patients who smoked weed.

  1. Crohn’s disease

An inflammation that develops anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract (GI), from mouth to anus.

In a small initial study of 13 patients observed over three months, they found that inhaled cannabis did improve life of people with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.  It helped ease pain, limited the repetition of diarrhea and helped with appetite.

  1. Epilepsy

This is a common brain disorder characterized by recurrent seizures.  Varied as 2 or more seizures diagnosed based on the description of episodes; person’s medical and family history and results of diagnostic tests.

Trials conducted at NYU Langone Medical Center showed a 50% of reduction in the frequency of certain seizures in 213 patients (children and adult) who took medical marijuana extracts.

  1. Glaucoma

Is a group of eye diseases which result in damage to the optic nerve and vision loss.

This is one of the main causes of blindness.

Researches proved that THC’s effect on this disease and found that it can lower eye pressure. It may also lower blood pressure, which could harm the optic nerve due to reduced blood supply. THC can also help preserve the nerves.

  1. Multiple Sclerosis

This is a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord. This happens when the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of the body. In the long run it can cause nerves themselves to decay or become constantly damaged.

There is no known cure for MS. Using marijuana or some of the chemicals in the plant may help avoid muscle spasms, pain tremors and stiffness. Side effect on a study involving 20 patients is that it may harm memory.

Indica Vs Sativa

Indica Vs Sativa The Difference Between the Two Cannabis Plants

We sometimes receive calls that will ask about what type of weed should they order?  Customers want to know what the pros and cons are with marijuana Indica Vs Sativa. The answer would be depending of what kind of effect you want to experience when you smoke weed. We usually have a variety of Sativas and Indicas available on our web site. So you will ask, what is Sativa and Indica?

Today’s article will let us distinguish the difference between an indica and sativa type of weed.

To start, indica and sativa are the two major types of cannabis plants. When the two types are mixed, a “hybrid” type is formed and each types has different effects on body and mind.

LOOK and TASTE

Indica typically grow shot and wide while Sativa grow tall and thin. Indica plants are better grown indoor because they grow short and Sativa are better grown outdoor because it can get as high as 25 ft. in height. Indica’s flowering time is shorter, about 8-12 weeks while sativa’s will take about 10-16 weeks to grow.

indica vs sativa

Indicas have fat fan leaves, where each leaf segment nearly touches each other or even overlaps a little. Sativa leaves look more like thin little fingers.

In terms of taste, Indicas are sweet and fruity while sativas are earthy and piny.

Buds:

The dried buds are are a little bit more difficult to differentiate because they might look like hybrids but once you know the basic features of each type, in a way, you can make an educated guess as to whether or not your strain is indica or sativa dominant.

Sativa’s buds are usually long, less dense, wispy bud or fluffy, often with red or orange coloring and have a sweeter or lighter aroma.

Indica’s buds are short, heavy, compact and dense, often purple coloring and have thick pungent aroma.

 

GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN

Most indica strains originated from the Hindu Kush region of the Middle East like Turkey, Morocco and Afghanistan while most sativa strains originated from those countries near the equator like Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Southeast Asia.

It makes sense when you want to distinguish each strain when it comes to the name of the weed. Indicas usually have Kush at the end while sativas have Haze.
