Marijuana is one of the most popular drugs in the world. This is because its effects tend to be relaxing, rather than mind altering and hallucinogenic like some other substances. It’s made from the dried flowers of the Cannabis Sativa plant, and can be green, brown or even gray in color.
It has been popular, but more recently, people are beginning to see the medicinal benefits it can have as well. There’s a lot of information on marijuana, and only some of them are accurate. Some people hear information from other people and believe it to be true, but not all of the information that you may have heard are true.
Marijuana is known by many names
It is referred to as grass, pot, weed, hash, and many other names. It comes in two forms. One is a brown resin that can cause headaches for some marijuana users. The other form is the dried flowers of a female plant.
Another thing you should know about marijuana is that the more you smoke, the more you will need to smoke to have the same effect. It is addictive, but not like the way in which other have. For long-term users, when they stop smoking marijuana, they can experience some withdrawal symptoms for a couple of days.
Many people refer to marijuana as a gateway drug. This is both true and false. It is not a gateway drug in that it encourages people to seek stronger drugs. Most marijuana users are looking for the relaxing effects marijuana brings, and not the effects of stronger drugs. But it is a gateway drug, in that it opens up access to other drugs, as users will probably be buying their marijuana from a dealer who more than likely has other drugs as well.
Some people prefer to smoke marijuana by rolling it with tobacco, and smoking it like a cigarette. Others prefer to smoke it in a pipe, a bong, or to bake it in brownies, or cookies. Marijuana has recently made a lot of progression regarding the medical benefits it can provide.
It can help with insomnia, nausea, and appetite increases for patients suffering from cancer and AIDS. It can also give some pain relief for patients with chronic pain. It is the THC in marijuana that provides these effects, which is why some medications include THC, and why growers are now specifically breeding plants to have high levels of THC.
Marijuana has many benefits and side effects
The side effects include memory issues, increased appetite, decreased reflexes, and extreme tiredness. Some users can use marijuana responsibly, and those users are very enthusiastic about the benefits and how marijuana helps them.
Although, there are always irresponsible users, who drive while under the influence, or drink alcohol at the same time. Marijuana can be very beneficial to many people, as long as it is legal within their jurisdiction and is used responsibly. In Colorado, particularly in Durango, the use of marijuana has been legalized. If you are in this particular state, you can check out the Durango Rec Room – Dispensary Locations.
