On the 31st of May, we will be celebrating World No Tobacco Day. According to the World Health Organization, this year’s theme is ‘tobacco and lung health,’ which seeks to disseminate information about the negative effects of tobacco on your lungs. If you are a tobacco smoker, you have probably heard of the detrimental impact cigarettes have on your body, including lung cancer and many other respiratory problems. Not to mention, the negative effects second- and third-hand smoke has on the people around you.
If you want to start breaking the habit, you may be encouraged to do so by celebrating World No Tobacco Day. Good thing cannabis can help you get started. Here’s how:
You Can Smoke Cannabis Instead
Many people think that smoking marijuana is not better than inhaling tobacco. This myth has been damaging the reputation of this plant for many years, but does it have even a sliver of truth? According to studies, out of all the marijuana smokers, only 9% will have the possibility of getting a serious addiction. On the other hand, 32% of cigarette users are likely to develop a serious addiction.
Aside from the possibility of getting addicted, hemp is much better than tobacco because it has ‘never been directly responsible for a death.’ It even offers a wide variety of health benefits, which makes it infinitely preferable as compared to cigarettes!
Just Look at the Benefits of Hemp
One of the best things you can do to convince yourself to stop tobacco smoking is to simply consider switching to marijuana because of its medical and even recreational benefits. This plant contains cannabidiol (CBD) which is the primary source of its therapeutic attributes. CBD is known to be a great addition to traditional treatments for cancer, epilepsy and inflammations, as well as mood and mental disorders such as PTSD, depression and anxiety.
If you are wondering why it works so well with the human body, this is because the body has an endocannabinoid system. This means that our bodies manufacture its own cannabinoids which are received via endocannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. These receptors are responsible for pain and pleasure, as well as our body’s immune system. By consuming cannabinoids from cannabis, you are supplying your body with these helpful chemical compounds.
CBD Vape Oil is a Great Alternative
Many people switch to vaping to avoid smoking. So far, vaping is one of the best alternatives to cigarettes, as it helps users to control their nicotine intake until they are comfortable vaping minimal to zero nicotine. While inhaling vapor is much better than inhaling tobacco smoke, you can get the best of both worlds by using CBD vape juice.
This is best for people who have become conscious inhaling smoke. By getting a CBD vape pen, you can avoid smoking in general and still get the benefits cannabis and its cannabinoids have to offer. You can even get e-juices containing not only CBD but also tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the compound responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.
Chew Cannabis-Infused Goodies to Curb the Craving
Some smokers have resorted to chewing gum whenever they get the urge to smoke. Aside from creating waste after all the flavor is gone, gum does not even have beneficial effects. So, instead of chewing gum, why not sink your teeth on CBD gummies and jelly beans? This way, you can get a delicious treat for resisting the urge to smoke, while also treating yourself to the wonders CBD can offer.
Many forms of cancer, including lung cancer, are becoming more and more rampant every day. Save yourself and the people around from such risks by opting for a healthier and more fulfilling habit. Start by participating in this coming World No Tobacco Day!
