Are Blunts Bad For Your Health?

The post Are Blunts Bad For Your Health? appeared first on High Times.

Blunts are one of the most popular ways to smoke weed. They provide a slower burn that is ideal for smoke circles. But are blunts bad for your health? If you only smoke them occasionally, your health should remain unharmed. However, due to the tobacco content, prolonged blunt use can come with some nasty side effects. Despite their popularity, they’re one of the least healthy ways to ingest cannabis.

Blunts vs. Joints

Are Blunts Bad For Your Health?

When compared to other methods of smoking weed, are blunts bad for your health? Joints are the preferred method of smoking for health-conscious weed smokers. They’re safer because there is no tobacco content.

Weed smoke is typically inhaled and held in the lungs briefly before being exhaled. In the case of blunts, that means you’re holding tobacco smoke in your lungs.

Cigarette smokers usually let the smoke out as soon as they’re done inhaling. Despite this, cigarette smoking is still the number one risk factor for lung cancer. According to the Centers for Disease …

Vaporizers: How to Choose The Right One for Your Needs

vaporizers

Whats Important to you?

When looking at new vaporizers, there are different ways you can choose them.

One of the ways which gets advocated most by vaporizer experts, is to look for a particular type of vaporizer.

For example:

You could go for a convection vaporizer vs a conduction vaporizer, if you wanted good vapor quality.

Or you could go for a desktop vaporizer because you just want to go for the most powerful experience.

But is this really the best way to go about your search?

Well, when vaporizers were new it was, but right now it really isn’t anymore.

Because with new technology, the old rules don’t count anymore, for example:

There are conduction vaporizers which produce vapor with a great taste.

Or, there are portable vaporizers as powerful as desktop vaporizers.

The new way to decide what vaporizer you get, should be based on what you find important when vaping, then look for a vaporizer, which scores highest in the categories that you find most important.

Today you’re going to learn which different categories a vaporizer can …

What’s Inside Your Weed Cartridge?

The post What’s Inside Your Weed Cartridge? appeared first on High Times.

Due to convenience, the weed cartridge has become one of the most popular methods of consuming cannabis. Cartridges are more discreet and easier to use than actual cannabis flowers. They don’t smell as much and there’s no need for packing, grinding or carrying a pipe. You just need a 510-thread battery and the pre-filled cartridge attached. Then depending on your battery, you either hold down a button or inhale through the mouthpiece to activate heating. This method of consumption is much more friendly to novices. It is even appealing to more seasoned cannabis consumers looking for something simple on the go.

Prefilled cartridges are one of the fastest growing segments of cannabis products. In fact, for the first time in history, the number of sold “ready-to-use” products has surpassed flowers. Due to their popularity, tons of companies are pumping out their own weed cartridge. Every company has their own formula for what to put in them. Some contain flavoring, additives and cutting agents while others claim to …

Tips to Getting the Right CBD Oil Dosage

CBD Oil

One of the biggest concerns with medical marijuana is getting the correct dosage of healing cannabinoids. In most oils or dried flowers, it is almost impossible to determine the amount of active ingredients in each dose. Fortunately, there is a better, more precise alternative: CBD oil.

 

Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD, is a non-psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. Over the past few years, medical researchers have uncovered a wealth of potential benefits of CBD. One major breakthrough revolves around using CBD as a treatment for prescription drug resistant epilepsy.

 

Recent clinical trials of high dose CBD products have found that treatment successfully reduced epileptic seizures in almost half of those who were treated. The strong anti-inflammatory components of CBD also show tremendous promise as a therapeutic tool. Inflammation is actually one of the leading causes of pain and contributes to a large variety of ailments.

 

Inflammation is thought to be the reason behind conditions such as arthritis and depression. The results of these studies sound great so far, but how do you gain access to …
