It’s not just discarded joints. Human feces might also be getting dogs high and sick


“It is possible that weed in feces increases its attractiveness for ingestion by altering its scent, texture and/or taste."

Dogs’ noses are remarkable things, with their sense of smell said to be about 40 times greater than that of humans. But those blue ribbon noses can lead pooches down the wrong path and, sometimes, nose-deep in human waste that contains cannabis and its psychoactive compound, THC.

The Los Angeles Times reported one such incident this past September. Taking her sluggish Chihuahua-terrier mix to the vet, the owner was told her dog was stoned after apparently sniffing out a chocolate edible near a softball field.

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.

Canadian actor Seth Rogen, who recently launched his own cannabis brand in partnership with Canopy Growth, believes that the Canadian government should reconsider its strategy against combating the black market for marijuana.

According to Rogen, people have less incentive to sell weed legally due to the complex and expensive procedure for setting up dispensaries. 


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.

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.
