Cannabis Class: Things to Know About Smoking Cannabis Occasionally

            Although Cannabis is generally thought to be a drug with few adverse side effects, there are some things to be considered when partaking.

Things to Know About Smoking Cannabis Occasionally

            Here’s what you need to know:

            Cannabis lowers blood pressure and heartbeat rate, so anyone new to the drug might feel lightheaded after smoking. If this happens, stay seated and let your heart slow down for ten minutes before standing up or walking around. People who already use Cannabis regularly probably won’t experience any of these problems because of their frequent exposure. It’s also important to note that marijuana can interfere with other drugs like antidepressants. These m lower blood pressure even more than regular doses of Cannabis do.

            During a typical cannabis high, a person’s mental understanding and perception of reality are altered. They may find it challenging to focus on tasks or conversations and forget things more easily. While this effect can make some laugh uncontrollably at nothing, those who use Cannabis occasionally may feel that their brain isn’t working as well as usual, even after the high has ended. To minimize these side effects, users should avoid taking part in complicated tasks after smoking marijuana. Driving under the influence should be avoided.

The meaning of; Occasionally means: “at infrequent or irregular intervals; now and then.” The breakdown does not explain the finer points occasionally enough. Some people may consider smoking once per day as occasional. Others may feel once per week or month means periodic. For these reasons’ let us use the scientific route to understand what occasionally means; concerning smoking Cannabis. 

Weekly use Occasionally 

Laws are changing as it concerns Cannabis and its use. Many people believe that because marijuana is decriminalized in the US, there is now a greater tolerance for use. The use of Cannabis does have laws attached to it. Federally, you can be fined if caught using, contrary to the state’s laws you live in. 

Occasional Weekly 

Occasional weekly use of smoking cannabis and its effects are determined by how much you use. Some people may smoke a mix of tobacco and weed, while others may smoke a blend of flowers and concentrates. The reaction varies, also, based on sex. Most people do not realize that males and females have different responses to smoking Cannabis. But the occasional weekly use of the product does have that extreme effect on your heart. 

A 2020 study; published in JACC Cardiovascular Imaging stated that people who smoke weekly might develop left ventricle issues. They may notice a shift in the hearts’ structure. These findings concluded the correlation to people having heart attacks, surprisingly within the first few hours of use.

A study done in 2011 reported by the Indian Journal of Psychiatry was interesting. If you stop smoking weed for a month, this study suggests your mental clarity and reaction time will return to normal. Yet another study was done by The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse and Addiction. They reported there were no cognitive issues in people who smoked weekly. 

Monthly Occasional

A monthly occasion smoker of Cannabis showed no significant harm to users. There were studies done by Professor Jonathan Caulkins, Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University, Heinz College, and the Journal of Addiction Medicine 2012. These studies showed that a monthly smoker would revert to normal body functions after four weeks. Their body functions were the same as men who did not smoke weed. 

Occasional Occasional Smokers 

Scientists are researching the effects of smoking cannabis both temporarily and long term, including dosages that will produce significant results. They have found that smoking occasionally monthly overtime may cause some immunity issues. They discovered elevated white blood cells in subjects tested. 

Just like everyone who smokes Cannabis, your balance and cognitive functions will be affected for the duration of your high. 

The truth is, smoking Cannabis affects people in different ways. If you decide to start smoking, remember that men and women have different reactions. Your body weight and nutrition also factor into how Cannabis affects you. So smoke with care! 

Shake Weed and Colorado Dispensary

Shake weed, also known as trim or trimming, is the small leaves that grow on cannabis flowers. Shake may be incredibly low potency compared to buds because shake is generally solely the small leftover parts of the flower that don’t contain much THC. Shake tends to have less than 10% content.

There are numerous dispensaries in my area. The dispensaries in my area are great places for people who need marijuana for medicinal purposes to go and purchase their products without having to resort to breaking any laws. Dispensaries can be found in almost every state across the nation with varying regulations depending on what state you’re in.

Colorado opened its first retail shops selling recreational marijuana this year (2014) and there are 30 states that have laws legalizing medical marijuana.

Dispensaries are starting to emerge as a major force in the cannabis industry as more and more states pass legislation approving some form of legalization of medical cannabis. In Colorado, dispensaries outnumber Starbucks locations 3 to 1. A dispensary is an establishment that people go to in order to purchase marijuana, whether it be for medicinal purposes or for recreational use. Surely you’ve seen a dispensary or two on a commercial street corner somewhere!

The colorado dispensary I recommend going to is open from 10am-10pm every day and there’s no registration process whatsoever you show up with your ID at the door and bam you can buy whatever weed products they sell.

Shake weed, also known as trim or trimming, is the small leaves that grow on cannabis flowers. Shake may be incredibly low potency compared to buds because shake is generally solely the small leftover parts of the flower that don’t contain much THC. Shake tends to have less than 10% content. Shake also tends to be cheaper for dispensaries to purchase from growers because it’s less labor-intensive and easier to produce.

There are a few different techniques used by growers when growing marijuana. One technique growers use with shake weed is called SOG (sea of green). In this method, there are several smaller plants grown throughout instead of fewer larger ones which take up less space and allow for more crops in a year. Shake weed is also used to make bubble hash which is a type of cannabis concentrate. Shake weed can be found at dispensaries all across Colorado, prices vary depending on state taxes and dispensary sales taxes. Shake weed tends to be much cheaper than buds because the cannabis that shake weed comes from has less potency therefore it’s often ground up into smaller pieces or blended together with other types of marijuana to give it more flavor.

Shake isn’t as potent as bud so it provides much lower highs but what shake lacks in THC it makes up for in cost efficiency. Shake is easier for growers to produce so I recommend shopping around before making a purchase, one dispensary may have better deals than another! Shake doesn’t taste nearly as good as buds either, shake is kind of like the weed version of spinach, it doesn’t taste good but you won’t notice it as much if you mix it with other things.
