I’m sure some of you will be reading this pro-weed blog, in an attempt to try and convince certain people that weed isn’t dangerous, and they need to chill out and allow you to get on with what you enjoy doing.
But I’m afraid; I have to say it. They might have a point.
No, don’t worry, I’m pro-weed. But that isn’t to say that it isn’t wise to be careful . No matter what you put into your body, you should always be aware of what it is, and the impact it can have on you.
Here is my guide on making sure you use weed safely.
When buying weed from the online shop, know that plants high in THC are going to be the ones that get you “high”. If you want to smoke for recreational use, and not medical, this is the chemical you’re going to be after.
On the one hand, it can help with depression and anxiety, but then again, for some people, it can make it worse. It depends on you as an individual and how you respond to the chemical in your system.
For those of you who’s brains are still developing, I would recommend you wait until you’re a grown-up before smoking the green stuff.
CBD, on the other hand, is more common for medical usage. This chemical will not be getting you high, but it can be better at helping you to deal with pain, particularly if you’re suffering from a condition such as arthritis.
It can also be useful if you’re having issues such as nausea or low appetite.
Even if you are smoking to help with your physical conditions, you ought to be careful of the effects it can have on your mental health.
Make sure you stop if you find yourself feeling anxious after a blunt.
The Right Source
The best way to be safe when smoking weed to make sure you’re getting it from the right sources. Make sure that you’re provider is operating within the guidelines of the law in the country they’re growing the produce.
If you have a question about the strain you’re using, you should be able to ask the person growing it for you, and they should be able to give you a clear and accurate answer.
Obtaining safe Cannabis will probably mean, not buying it from that shady man who lives down your road. Getting it from the wrong sources will mean that you won’t be getting many of the positive benefits.
If you experience negative effects
That does, of course, lead onto the question of what should you do if you do take some that isn’t working for you. Maybe when you get high, you feel anxious.
First of all, and I know this is going to sound cheesy, but try to remain calm. No matter how bad you’re feeling, panicking and getting all flustered isn’t going to help the situation one bit.
It would help if you also tried to eat something. Try to go for something high in carbohydrates so that it can absorb some of the product from your blood.
Marijuana can be great, it makes you feel high, and it can help with medical issues that you may have. But your mom is right; you do need to be careful and make sure you’re using it safely and responsibly.
Decide why you’re using it if you just want to get high, then go for something high in THC, but if you’d rather deal with physical pain, go for something higher in CBD.
Make sure you’re getting it from safe places, and eat something if you’re feeling anxious.
