What is up guys and welcome back to koi’s corner. if you enjoy this tutorial, make sure to like, subscribe, and leave me a comment letting me know why. This is just a quick tutorial. Um, I thought I would address and explain to you guys in detail simply because with almost every tutorial I post, reading through comments, I always get questions from people as to whether or not I smoke weed, that I look like I do, that the topics I talk about stem from kind of stereotypical cultural normality that involves the ingestion of marajuana to a lot of people but I want to explain why I don’t and why I haven’t in close to five years.
And this tutorials purpose isn’t to say that smoking weed is bad or that you should smoke weed or that my position is the ultimate position. I’m just simply explaining what happened to me, why I chose to stop, and that’s pretty much it. Every single person is affected differently by marajuana, some good, some bad, some a neutral state so my story is really just mine and I don’t think it’s something anyone should dive too deep into or overthink too much. So growing up, pretty much, I started smoking weed around freshman year of high school. I was about fourteen, fifteen years old and I remember from the moment I started doing it,.
I absolutely loved it just for the effects it gave me, the way it made me feel very happy, very chill, very relaxed, very at peace with what was going on. I was a sort of connoisseur right at the start. I didn’t smoke too much my freshman year of high school because I played sports and you kind of got drug tested and you weren’t always allowed but once that whole period of my life ended and a lot more things started happening, both good and bad, it was kind of something that was always there. If I wasn’t smoking weed, I was smoking spice or something to emulate this effect I got from THC.
I would usually be cheap ’cause i didn’t have much money so i would vaporize and save as much of it as I could so I could almost use it every day. It was something that was just fun. It was a social, fun thing. I went out with people and did it. We all hung out in big groups at houses and made music and smoked. It was just a thing I think a lot of kids who don’t have anything extra curricular going on tend to do once they finally get out of school and have some free time on their own. And it was great and it was fun to me at the time because I didn’t realize or I wasn’t old enough, I think,.
To realize that it was kind of beginning to slowly set me back without me noticing. By this, I mean many people do things after school other than just sit around and do nothing. People have jobs, people are studying to get into college, people are working on crafts, maybe going out surfing, or coming home and painting, or working on new music, or posting tutorials on . This is a common thing between all kids that get out of school and want to work on something. But for me, being a stoner, being somebody who smoked twenty four seven, it meant that my goal when I got out of school was to.
Just get high and nothing else. you know i wasn’t really doing anything at all. i was just getting high and sitting there with my friends and that was it and when you’re at that age, it’s a normal thing you think. It’s normal to just smoke and hang out but I think as you get older, you realize it’s really not that normal to be doing nothing with your time, to not be educating yourself or reading books or watching documentaries or doing something progressive in some sense. It’s very regressive to just sit still, get high, and just talk with friends all day but not really work on your own personal path, your own personal progress or what you might.
Want to do with your life once this phase of four years in high school ends. But I loved it so much and it was so fun for me. It was such a filling feeling I think because it took away the need to think about all that extra stuff that I didn’t want to think about at that time. But as time went on, as you guys have seen, I got in trouble with the law, ended up getting a DUI and before I went to jail, I had about a year between that time where I still went back and finished school, went to high school, spent a whole year getting ready for college and you know the rest of my life before I actually.
Eventually went into jail which if you haven’t seen that tutorial, it’s gonna be up here and it’s also in my book which is in the description below. I go into a lot more detail on that. But after the initial arrest and during that whole year period before I had to go away, I didn’t smoke any weed and that was weird for me. You know, I went from doing something nearly every day to not wanting to do it at all. By choice, not doing it at all and I think it’s because when this accident occurred, when everything in my life changed, when I knew my future was something I had to focus on right here and now, when one day I was a kid and the next day I was a grown up.
Is Smoking Weed Bad For You The Health Effects of Marijuana
Is weed bad for you? Depending on who you ask, weed is either a cancer fighting wonder drug, or the devil trying to corrupt us all. And since theres 22 states considering changing their marijuana laws, we wanted to get to the bottom of the question is weed really bad for you?? Sciq Intro.
Now, before we get started on the biological impacts of what happens when you get high/ blaze/burn/light up/scroll/bake (scroll? really?) Lets break the potential down side into three sections. The brain, the lungs, and cancer. First off the brain.
It is assumed that the use of marijuana by teenagers is harmful to brain development the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) warns teens in particular to avoid marijuana as their little brains are still developing. And weeds main psychoactive ingredient THC definitely does act on the brain it mimics the brains natural endocannabinoids, which regulate our physiological functions, such as appetite, pain, memory and mood.
Now anything that affects the brains chemistry should be used very carefully our brain is a well regulated machine and it is a bad idea to fu** with that system for example if you take away our brains ability to regulate appetite you can get the munchies which is why theres a stereotype of the fat stoner. But is smoking weed actually damaging your brain? Well your brain does adjust to anything you put into it, but to date, the studies that.
Ive seen havent been able to prove any serious long term effects on the brain itself from moderate marijuana consumption. So on the danger spectrum with fatty foods here and heroin here, Id say weed is definitely somewhere in THIS category. Ok so the lungs. if we look at lung health There is a huge disagreement about whether or not marijuana.
Smoke is harmful to the lungs. For example, according to a 2014 study, there is no difference in the breathing of those who do not smoke at all and those who smoke marijuana regularly. But Lung contests that all smoke is harmful to the lungs. Basically, there is no clear, demonstrable evidence that potheads have anymore difficulty breathing than the average nonuser.
Interestingly, there may be reason to believe that marijuana smoke actually has a *positive* effect on lung health (and Im not joking). Though the causes are very unclear, there is research from a Nature Partner Journal to suggest that Forced Vital Capacity, the amount of air you can force yourself to hold, sees an overall increase in recreational marijuanasmokers assuming they dont smoke tobacco products as well.
Though the the american lung association continues to push for more research into this, and they should, the data suggests that there isnt too much harm to the lungs as far as marijuana smoke goes. And now Cancer So we know that tobacco smoking can give you cancer, so is week smoking ALSO going to cause cancer? If you look at the research so far, it looks like its actually the opposite marijuana.
