Why We Should Reach For Marijuana When We’re Angry

Cannabis helps people to put themselves in others’ shoes. There’s even the chance that after passing the weed back and forth a few times that laughter will ensue.

Anger. Sometimes it’s self righteous, sometimes it’s about love, sometimes it’s fueled by fear, but it often comes in pairs, especially when a couple or a couple of friends get heated. Being passionate is a good thing, but so is maintaining relationships and even your cool. Marijuana is the great moderator, and for more reasons than you might thing.

Study: Women Have More Intense Marijuana Cravings Than Men

Though men tend to smoke greater amounts and more frequently than women, women tend be more sensitive to marijuana consumption.

We know women and men react differently to cannabis. The endocannabinoid system — the set of receptors that bond with consumed marijuana — interacts directly and indirectly with estrogen in a women’s body. A 2009 study, published in the European Journal of Pharmacology, found the amount of CB1 receptors in a woman’s body fluctuates depending on estrogen levels, meaning women experience more intense highs when their estrogen levels peak.

What Should Be The Legal Age For Cannabis? Researchers Weigh In

Part of responsible cannabis use is ensuring that it stays out of the hands of children. Cannabis may not be as harmful as many common household cleaners, however, it should still be kept out of the hands of children.

Limited circumstances will always exist in which medical cannabis is needed to treat a young patient, as directed by a doctor, so there’s always exceptions. Yet in a vast majority of situations, cannabis and kids should not mix.

At some point a person becomes an adult and then it’s a different matter. A responsible adult can consume cannabis in most instances without any major side effects.
