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

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!

Can Kratom Boost My Energy Levels?

Kratom

Everyone has their daily list of tasks that they need to complete by the time the day is over. But when you’ve had a terrible night’s sleep prior, it makes waking up and getting all the things you need to do done very hard to do. Coffee and caffeine can only do so much. You may be wondering, is there another alternative? If you find yourself desperate for a solution then you came to the right place! Today we’re going to be talking about a plant called Kratom, what it is and how it affects your energy. We’ll also be discussing other potential benefits this herb may possess.

What Is Kratom?

Kratom, or Mitragyna Speciosa, is an evergreen tree that is a part of the coffee family. It is native throughout Southeast Asia, and it is commonly found in countries such as Thailand, Myanmar, and Indonesia. Kratom is known for its euphoric like effects and the health benefits it possesses. Although Kratom is legal in the United States and sold in many alternative medicine stores, it is illegal in numerous parts of Southeast Asia due to a lack of testing and knowledge about this plant.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has not yet approved Kratom for medical use because there have been few clinical trials to fully understand the herb. People take Kratom for a variety of reasons. Some use it for purely recreational purposes, whereas other people use it for pain relief or try to substitute it for opioids or to treat withdrawal symptoms. Kratom is a highly controversial substance that hasn’t been researched enough to know the long term effects.

Kratom For Energy

There are three main strains of Kratom. These strains include red, green, and white variations. The best strain for energy or motivation is white Kratom. Some people state that when taken in small doses, white Kratom makes them feel energized, focused, and sociable when they otherwise won’t be. But when taken in higher doses, people have reported feeling calmness, euphoria, and even sedation, which isn’t good when you are trying to be focused and energized. It is advised if you do plan on taking Kratom of energy, motivation, and focus, that you choose white Bali Kratom. It is one of the milder types of Kratom but will give you the boost that you need. There is also white Maeng Da Kratom or white Borneo which are more potent but they are also good for boosting your energy if taken in small doses.

Other Benefits Of Kratom

Along with Kratom having great energizing properties, it also some other benefits. First of all, many people say that Kratom is a great relief for chronic muscle pain because it works like a sedative in relaxing your muscles. Another thing that people use Kratom for is treatment for anxiety and depression as it can energize you and make you crave more social interaction. Of course, none of these are scientifically proven, but people that actively use Kratom have stated these benefits.

In conclusion, although the Kratom plant is quite a controversial herb, it can have amazing benefits and qualities and may be a useful source for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, treatment for drug addicts, and an energizer. Many people in today’s age are opting for natural path options instead of modern-day medicine, and this could be the new up and coming natural medication. With further research and clinical trials, this plant may one day be approved by the FDA and become as common as THC and CBD are becoming.

The effects are said to usually start within 10 minutes after ingesting the plant and can last up to one and half hour.
