I have a feeling this is going to be a very controversial thread, but Ill do my best to make my point.
Ive been smoking weed for about a year now… before that Ive only tried it a few times. I used to be against it, thinking it was much worse for you than smoking tobacco, and that it can permanently alter your way of thinking… but alot of research has been done since pot has been on the verge of being legalized in BC for a while… and very soon doctors will be prescribing it at
One joint is only as bad for you as 4 cigarettes depending on how it is grown… some growers use all organic materials, others may use chemicals to help it grow, although it is easy to tell whether the pot is organic by how smooth the bud tastes, and by how much tar is on the end of the joint after it is smoked… very clean weed will have very little or no tar.
Pot isnt nearly as bad as it is made out to be… it is not at all addictive, unlike smoking cigarettes. I quit smoking pot for a few weeks in row every few months without problems… and I have a kind of addictive personality. To tell you the truth, I find caffiene much more addictive that pot… drinking is even worse. The worse side effect is the damage done to your lungs, which like I said, it is no worse than smoking tobacco.
Pot can bring some people down… many people just get lazy and act stupid, but it has different effects on each user. I actually smoke weed before I work out and go jogging (which I do every second day after building log homes from dawn till dusk). Pot will bring down most people, but if you have the right will power, it can really turn your life around. I know I wouldnt be in nearly as good of shape as I am right now if i hadnt started smoking pot.
But anyway, for quite a while I experienced 100% clear skin even though I had quit avoiding wheat and dairy… which usually I would be breaking out like crazy. I have been on that diet for about 2 years now with really good luck… and I knew that the clear skin couldnt be from outgrowing the acne problem since it was such a sudden change.
I couldnt figure out why I had such clear skin until recently when I heard that THC (what gets you high in pot), lowers your testosterone. You have to smoke alot to get good results with your acne, but the results are much better than anything I have ever tried… and for 3 years I had tried nearly every solution for acne I could find, aside from accutane.
You can actually eat pot, or make pot or hash brownies… or else there are whole cook books available for cooking with pot. This would definately be the way to go if you are only using it for your acne… eating pot has no known side effects according to my family doctor, and it only gives you a body high… your thinking is still perfectly in line.
Pot is quite expensive, especially in the States and northern climates, but not compared to what some people are spending on vitamins and such.
Pot has different effects on everyone… but im sure anyone with a testosterone related acne problem would benefit from it. Im sure most of you may see this thread as a joke or something, but it is definately something that is worth looking into. I wont be able to reply to this thread until next saturday, as I will be at camp working.
