• Marijuana is stronger today.
During the famous Woodstock Festival in 1969, marijuana contained about one percent THC. However, when hemp plants were crossed, the THC content increased. Today it is about 15 percent or more. As a result, cannabis is no longer the “harmless hippie drug” it once was.
• Cannabis is a prescription drug.
Cannabis is also widely used in medicine. Analgesic, antispasmodic and sedative effects are used, for example, in chronic pain, epilepsy and cancer.
• Cannabis is tiring.
Cannabis doesn’t make many people happy and cheerful, but rather tiresome. This is due to the cannabidiol (CBD) it contains, which relaxes muscles and promotes sleep.
• CBD oil works without being overpriced.
There is now also pure cannabidiol (CBD) in the form of CBD oil (like a dream drop). It does not contain THC, has analgesic and sedative effects, but does not have an intoxicating effect.
• Better leave your car at home.
Under the influence of cannabis, the ability to concentrate and reaction times are severely limited. If you are caught driving, you will lose your driver’s license, and in the event of an accident, you will also face civil or criminal consequences. Therefore: do not drive for at least twelve hours after smoking weed.
• Cannabis can make you stupid.
Increased use of cannabis can negatively affect intelligence, especially in adolescents whose brains are still growing. On average, IQ drops to eight percentage points with the usual cant. However, this only applies to beginners. Adults who smoke joint from time to time should not fear mental impairment.
• Do not mix cannabis and alcohol.
Smoking weed and drinking alcohol with it? It is a bad idea. Alcohol increases the effects of THC and can cause discomfort, anxiety, and even hallucinations. The mixture also disrupts circulation and often causes nausea and vomiting.
• Cannabis instead of alcohol? Even better.
Is a joint as harmless as a cocktail or a glass of wine? Experts say no. Since alcohol is broken down in the liver within hours, cannabis remains in the body for several weeks. In addition, there is a carcinogenic effect of smoking. In addition, cannabis contains over 400 substances that have not yet been properly researched.
• Legalization of cannabis – pros and cons.
Supporters hope that by selling it for free, better quality cannabis can be provided. When buying on the black market, there is always the risk of getting a bad mixed product. This can lead to poisoning and bad trips. Opponents of legalization are especially afraid of an increase in the number of drug addicts.
