These days it seems like everyone and their grandmother has something to say about pot. With the recent legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado even President Obama and Bill Gates have chimed in on the conversation. Unfortunately, very few people have heard that cannabis can help them achieve their health and wellness goals in 2014.
The cold, hard fact is that while our chances of upholding our New Year’s resolutions are getting slimmer by the day, we most likely are not.
But, there’s hope. What if I told you that smoking marijuana at least 3 times per week reduced your chances of obesity by ⅓? Would you believe me? If your answer is “no”, then check out this study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology. In multiple cases, it was shown that occasional marijuana use does in fact reduce the risk of obesity. The truth is finally out, and getting lifted is just as good for your health as lifting weights.
Beyond this one benefit, marijuana seeds are one of nature’s best sources of polyunsaturated fats and are a good source of protein. Protein is required to build muscle, while polyunsaturated fats have been shown to reduce cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of heart disease. The American Heart Association goes on to say that the nutrients contained within polyunsaturated fats “play a crucial role in brain function”.
If you’re already convinced and are looking to add marijuana seeds to your next meal, we highly recommend Hemp Hearts from Manitoba Harvest. To round out the “Doobie Diet”, you want to make sure to smoke your favorite herbal supplement at least once every two days. A little exercise probably wouldn’t hurt either.
If you have a personal story regarding how marijuana has affected your health in a positive way, please share that with us on Facebook.
To those who are beginning to explore or continue to explore the important role that marijuana plays in maintaining wellness, “Best wishes in 2014.”
It was one year ago today, April 13th, 2011, when Marijuana Mythbusters transformed from a pipe dream to reality. At the time we we’re located in Massachusetts, and we had spent about a month getting the site ready to be launched. On April 13th, the first post went live, and the rest is history. All in all, it’s been an exciting year for us, and through all the good times (and that one really bad time, just Google “marijuana mythbusters tmz” if you don’t know what we’re talking about) we would just like to thank all our fans and friends for helping to make MJMB what it is today. While we’re still working to bring our original idea to fruition and spending more time busting myths, we greatly appreciate your continued support and patronage of our site during the past year. With 420 coming up its getting to be a busy time in the stoner world. You better be ready, if the Mayans we’re right it could be the last 420 ever. Think about it. Our plan is to be in Boulder/Denver, Colorado for the big day. The High Times Medical Cannabis Cup and lots of other festivities will be taking place on the big day. No matter where in the world you will be on 420, just remember to get high, as high as physically possible. Don’t worry it won’t kill you.
We put this part in here because we know as well as you that stoners don’t always want to read. So, this picture here shows the monthly views we experienced at Marijuana Mythbusters during our first year. We look forward to continuing the upward trend, which to you means “Go click on some shit!”. So, until next time. MJMB out and Jah bless.
A couple of weeks ago we were asked if it was possible to get high off of resin. And, we tried it for ourselves. We had a daily smoker quit for one week, than smoke a bowl full of resin. Our test subject stated that he felt just as high as he would from smoking a bowl, in the beginning possibly even more high eventually leveling off. After having him smoke every day for one week we performed the same test again on our human guinea pig. At which point he stated the effect seemed to last shorter than usual and was less intense than from marijuana itself.
This leads us to believe that resin does contain THC, and that it is possible to get high off of it. However, the THC content of resin may vary greatly depending on the type of marijuana you are smoking at what you are smoking it out of. You could have some dank resin or some with minimal THC content. Scientifically, it makes sense since because not all of the THC is activated and vaporized when marijuana is burned. After smoking a portion of the resin has not reached the appropriate vaporization and activation temperature for marijuana and remains unburned.
So, when the going gets tough and you run out of weed, or can’t find any. It would be possible to get high off of resin in bongs and bowls. However, in our opinion it tastes terrible, the high is okay, but realistically it is just not the real deal.
Hope this help cleared some things up for you guys. Remember to send us your myths. And, feel free to get at us with any questions or comments you may have.
