How Sanitary Is It To Share A Pipe?

At some point between their pass and your puff, puff, you may have stopped to wonder, Is that dude’s gross spit going to get me sick? It’s not exactly a common public health concern. But maybe cannabis smokers should be a tad bit more concerned about swapping germs. “I’ve never heard of anybody specifically getting anything [from sharing a pipe],” says Jordan Tishler, MD, a medical cannabis expert at InhaleMD. But that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. “[Sharing a pipe] is about as sanitary as kissing somebody standing next to you,” he says. “So if you would think that was icky, you probably shouldn’t do it.” It all comes down to the saliva, which is an excellent substance for transferring …

Weed Hangover, Feel Sick After Smoking Marijuana Cure

Beyond that, though, it’s worth taking a good look at your long-term cannabis habits. “If you’re having a weed hangover, it’s a sign you’re not using cannabis optimally,” Dr. Sulak says. So, he recommends new users try using a dose that produces the most minimal (yet noticeable) effects for about three days before upping their consumption. And, for veteran users, he suggests abstaining from weed for two days before finding their minimal dose. Both of these protocols help your body build up a tolerance to the negative side effects of marijuana while also making you more sensitive to the positive effects, Dr. Sulak explains.

Moms Marijuana Use Parents Weed Cannabis Statistics

A new survey from Eaze, a cannabis technology company that facilitates delivery of medical marijuana, analyzed who their consumers are. They found that they are highly educated, employed, and well-off, with almost half of respondents reporting an income of $75,000 or more per year. They’re also overwhelmingly millennials. A higher number of women than men reported using cannabis daily, but perhaps most surprising of all is that one in five marijuana users in their survey were parents — with 63% of those parents reporting using cannabis on a daily basis.

A Terminally Ill Man Checked Out Of Home Care To Smoke Marijuana One Last Time

After being diagnosed with bowel cancer in December, Patrick Ford, a former welder in Bournemouth, England, has now been told that he only has a few days to live. One of his last requests? To smoke one last bit of marijuana with his friend in his bed in his nursing home, according to Metro UK. His best friend, David Warnock, had visited in order to make Ford’s wish come true, but thanks to marijuana laws in the UK, the staff at Drumconner Nursing Home had to decline the request. “At the care home we had the fan pointed out the window to blow the smoke, but they snatched it away,” Warnock told Metro. “He had been looking forward to having …

Canada Pot Legalization Shortage Problem

Since one of the government’s major motives for legalization is to get rid of the black market, it wants to make sure there’s enough weed to replace it. And given the growing demand in the country, officials aren’t confident that there is. “Ultimately the biggest problem that appears after today’s discussion is one of supply,” Ontario Minister of Finance Charles Sousa told Bloomberg. “So we want to make certain that, when we do proceed, there is sufficient supply to accommodate the activity because what we’re trying to do is curb the illicit use and organized crime that now exists around it.” Continue reading at Refinery29.com

This Is Why Miley Cyrus Quit Smoking Weed

There was a period of Miley Cyrus’ life when she was known for her out-there, kooky, off-the-wall antics, and most of this, she admitted, had to do with weed. The “Malibu” singer had an affinity for marijuana, but in an interview with Jimmy Fallon, she explained why she’s finally quitting it. “I’ve always been very stoned on your shows. I don’t know if you know this, everybody,” she told Fallon last night during The Tonight Show. “‘Member the last time I was here? I was dressed as a bunny rabbit and then like a cat. There’s a reason for that: I was high.” It got to a point where her constant weed use had pushed her into a permanent state …

Our First Look At Transparent Season 4 Is Here

The Pfeffermans are back — or will be soon enough. Amazon has just released a new trailer for season 4 of Transparent, the Emmy-winning dramedy that proves reaching adulthood is not the ending of growing up. The whole gang has returned for the new season of the Amazon series, which includes resident “Moppa” Maura (Jeffrey Tambor), whose gender transition journey inspired her family to make their own life changes. The new trailer shows the Pfeffermans experiencing all that life has to offer — which, in the case of Maura and Ali (Gabby Hoffman), includes cannabis-infused gummy bears. “I was just going to have you eat the head!,” Ali says to Maura, who has just popped an entire gummy in your mouth. …
