4 Ways Cannabis Can Help You Through World ‘No Tobacco Day’

Published

Cannabis

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!

The State of Cannabis in Washington State: Things To Know in 2021

Published

on

The Pacific Northwest is well known for its beautifully lush landscapes, crisp apples, fresh air, and progressive lifestyle/health views. Being the only state named after a United States president(George Washington), Washington is a place many happily and willingly call home or their sanctuary.  

In terms of other well-knowns, Washington state was one of the first to legalize cannabis for recreational use nearly a decade ago (2012 to be exact). As long as you are 21 years old or older and reside in the state, you can privately partake in the consumption of cannabis without any legal ramifications. This has been an appeal to many across the country, with some actually moving to the state for this reason.

In 2021, and with the dawn of a new administration in the White House, marijuana looks to have a very bright few years ahead. We’ve already seen an emergence of pot stocks and hometown dispensaries budding up all around the United States and the rest of North America, and that only looks to continue into the near future.

If you’re in the mood to finally take the leap into using cannabis, now could be a great time to learn more about this wonderful plant and its many healing and rejuvenating properties. 

What is it used for mainly in 2021?

Cannabis was once thought only to be good for “getting high.” There has been a plethora of scientific research giving us a better understanding of this miracle plant. It has been used to treat Cancer, Epilepsy, Seizures, Glaucoma, PTSD, Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammation, and even Alzheimer’s disease. In 2021 after a rough 2020, many have been using it as a healthier way to indulge at home, protecting themselves from the ongoing pandemic. Instead of frequent alcohol consumption, there has been a larger shift towards the consumption of cannabis as it has been stated to be less harmful to vital organs like the heart and liver. Alcohol also creates a lot of inflammation within the body, whereas cannabis reportedly fights inflammation. 

Best places to buy it in 2021?

The best places to purchase your cannabis are from state-licensed retailers in Washington. Purchasing weed through private means(aka black-market) is still illegal and should be avoided at all costs. Make sure to do your due diligence when seeking reputable dispensaries as there are “pop-up shops” that claim being licensed but are not, and purchasing from them could result in a hefty fine or even jail time. 

Per WeedMaps, Medical marijuana patients may purchase and possess up to:

  • 3 ounces of marijuana, or 85 grams;
  • 48 ounces, or 1.36 kilograms of marijuana-infused products in solid form;
  • 1.69 gallons, or 6.4 liters of marijuana-infused products in liquid form, or; 
  • 21 grams of marijuana concentrate.

Washington state cannabis Legislation in 2021

As far as growing and cultivation of marijuana for personal use, this is still illegal. Washington cannabis laws are more liberal than other states, but there are still many restrictions, such as not being able to consume it in “public view”. The most notable push in the cannabis space in Washinton state is a bill for home cultivation.

Conclusion

Washington is a great place to visit and, for many, is one of the best places to call home due to its stance on cannabis consumption. With 2021 being a year of progression, it looks like the state of cannabis in Washington will only continue to shine.
