Cannabis Side Effects
Today we are going to talk about a very important topic, Cannabis.
In many countries it is legal at a playful level, in others at a medical level and in still others totally illegal, this article will explain all the effects of cannabis both positive and negative.
Unfortunately like any other substance it is not without side effects, many are mild others very serious and many others disappear quickly. Like other substances, most of the effects disappear over time.
Cannabis and Medicine:
Cannabis has been under scientific studies for years to understand the true potential of this substance, from the results of these researches it appeared that there can be side effects, sometimes desired other unwanted effects.
As with everything in life, cannabis intake must also be moderate and thrifty. With high or low doses they oppose having totally different effects.
Now we list the most common effects on cannabis use.
Mild side effects:
These effects are among the most common and are transient: they should gradually diminish and disappear within a few hours.
- Red eyes
Marijuana has a vasodilator effect, having this effect increases blood pressure and blood flow, including in the eyes, this causes red eyes.
A great way to avoid this little nuisance is to use drops, such as eye drops, or drink plenty of water.
Cannabis Light, thanks to internal substances such as; CBG, CBD, and CBN can help reduce this effect.
Mouth dehydration happens for a simple reason, cannabinoids interact with the submandibular glands which no longer receive messages from the nervous system and therefore stop producing saliva.
To avoid this nuisance you can; drinking water, chewing ice or butts.
Using vaporizers with excellent inflorescences, such as those found on our site, avoid total dryness of the mouth.
- Increased hunger
Who doesn't know the munchies? This is one of the best known effects, it alters the perception of hunger, which is why it is also used to treat diseases such as anorexia.
This effect is caused by THC, which interacting with the receptors in our brain stimulate the sense of smell and taste but not only.
It increases the secretions of certain hormones which stimulates the appetite and dopamine giving more pleasure while eating.
Unlike THC, CBD and THCV act as antagonists, helping to regulate the release of hormones that increase appetite.
- Motor functions and slower reflexes
Many people who use it notice changes in reaction times (which is why you should never drive after taking it).
This effect disappears over time and with getting used to the substance.
Many users, after smoking, experience a sense of drowsiness, which can be positive or negative.
Those who want to avoid drowsiness can use different types of Marijuana such as Sativas or predominantly Sativas.
- Headache, lightheadedness or dizziness
Few users may experience dizziness or headaches, caused by dehydration or low blood pressure.
If you experience these effects, change the variety or method of consumption
Serious side effects:
These effects are rare but can cause a lot of discomfort, in this case it is better to consider the intake of cannabis.
- Anxiety or paranoia
Paranoia or anxiety are two very undesirable effects for consumers, they can range from mild to severe.
There is a very simple solution, or rather two, to use Cannabis that has high CBD contents or to use one that has Delta-8-THC inside rather than the classic Delta-9-THC, having less piscoactive properties.
It may happen that some users notice a sharp increase in heart rate or an irregular heartbeat due to the biphasic properties of cannabis.
THC passes from the lungs, to the bloodstream and to the whole body, in a few minutes the heartbeat increases from 20 to 50 beats per minute which can even take several hours.
First thing to do is to breathe deeply to calm down, especially calm down because Cannabis has never recorded deaths, so it is totally safe.
Use CBD, as in our Cannabis Light Inflorescences immediately afterwards to lower the heartbeats or a simple cold shower vessel constricts the blood vessels therefore lowers the pressure and consequently the beats.
- Nausea and vomit
Regular and prolonged consumption of cannabis can lead to the onset of Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome, which causes vomiting, abdominal pain, nausea or dehydration to the point of needing medical attention.
The only way, alas, is to stop using cannabis until this side effect goes away.
- Induced psychosis
Unfortunately, the consumption of Cannabis can in rare cases lead to states of psychosis in genetically predisposed individuals, who in the family with relatives with bipolar disorders, piscosis or schizophrenia. It is highly recommended to contact a psychiatrist to be followed up in the situation or to suspend permanent use.
Those who are not genetically predisposed are more likely to have episodes of strong depression or anxiety, of short duration especially when consuming high doses.
Cannabis strains that are high in CBD, CBG, or CBN are also a nice way to reduce the chances of experiencing psychotic attacks.
