Findings from the study conducted on mice “may help develop novel treatments for prevention of some neurological abnormalities.”

New research out of the U.S. suggests the saliva microbiome of chronic weed smokers with cannabis use disorder could be associated with central nervous system (CNS) abnormalities that can affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves found throughout the body.

A microbiome relates to the microorganisms in a particular environment. In the case of saliva, it comprises bacteria shed from oral surfaces.

What Method Of Smoking Weed Gets You The Highest — Is There One?

couple getting high

If you decide to change your smoking methods because you feel you’re not high enough, you might not experience any difference if you do not confirm the quality of your product.

Do you ever ask yourself if you’re smoking weed the right way? Or do you have a favorite way of smoking pot but you have that nagging feeling that you’re not doing it the right way?  It’s not just you. Everyone cannot have the same ‘best’ way of smoking cannabis. Your best high may not be the same as mine.

The goal of many recreational marijuana users is to get high the best way possible, and when high, they aim to get the highest. The more they find themselves rolling or inhaling smoke from their delivery devices, the more doubt they’ll have.

Many founders of cannabis companies have origin stories about how the powerful plant changed their lives – from enhanced intimacy and increased focus to better performance in sports and better sleep.

7 Ways To Get A Bad High Under Control

Bad highs can be very stressful situations and it’s important to learn how to cope with them. Here are some ways to come down from a bad high quickly.

Bad highs are a normal part of life, but that doesn’t make them suck any less. These intense experiences can make us feel paranoid and like we’re not in control of our bodies. They tend to occur when people are trying out a new cannabis method, when they’re with people they don’t feel comfortable with, or when located in a strange situation.

While sometimes a bad high occurs because our bodies weren’t feeling great or because we smoked a strain that isn’t doing it for us, in order to prevent them, it’s important to try to control some of the outside factors that can produce them.

Why Your Marijuana Tolerance Break Isn’t Working

passing a joint

The amount of time you allow for your T-break is important, but how you spend that time away from THC can also affect the effectiveness of your respite.

Tolerance breaks, often referred to as T-breaks, are a great way to reset your body and reawaken the long-forgotten feeling you had when you first started using cannabis. If you use marijuana regularly, its effects can alter and weaken over time. When you need more and more weed to feel the same effects, you might be one of many cannabis users who could benefit from a T-break.
