Why some people maybe become ‘addicted’ to smoking grass

Researchers have unravelled one reason why this week, and it could be partly genetic.

People who’ve suffered childhood abuse are particularly vulnerable – but having one particular genetic variation seemed to protect against dependence.

Researchers from Washington University in St. Louis focused on 1,558 Australian survivors of childhood trauma – in particular sexual abuse.

Even among survivors of abuse, not all went on to become dependent. But those who did had one particular variation within the body’s endocannabinoid system – the system which cannabis affects.

‘We have long known that childhood adversity, and in particular sexual abuse, is associated with the development of cannabis dependence. However, we understand very little about the individual difference factors that leave individuals vulnerable or resilient to these effects,’ says Ryan Bogdan of Washington
University.

UK media is well known for distorting the facts when it comes to this innocuous herb. I've known hundreds of smokers and never have I met one that's "addicted". That is some nut-job what about the babies and Jesus bullshit if I ever heard it.
I certainly can't say that for alcohol, but those facts are overlooked due to advertising interests.

I think they claim it is addictive because of the withdrawls. Yes, withdrawls.

You can stay high from wake and bake to toke n snooze every day for years and stop cold turkey. Then, for a few days you will be a little tired, you will be a little irritable and food will taste like shït.

Them's some serious withdrawl symptoms.

Well 'the UK has been equally complicit on the prohibition of one hemp plant. The rest of the world is easing up on their laws and moving beyond the Old Status Quo ideology, finely. The UK is mental from the blue

If anything I ever wanted was to allow the chemical discoveries of such a special plant for man to wholly be used. Deer bear coyotes rabbits birds won't go near it and build a clean non destructive world built and powered by a ever so special gift from the gods for man. Yeah. No more oil cartels and BS.

Yup. And give up caffeine cold turkey. The headache alone is enough to drive you learn how to order at Starfucks.

Let's not mention that withdrawals from legal alcohol can literally kill you.

I had a fantastically harmonious childhood.
Nobody ever abused me (except the school system).

Kind of sad, that it's becoming legal in more and more
places....because I still think the international cannabis
prohibition is the best political thinking machine ever
issued. By the slavemasters themselves, for the slaves'
free use (unless you get caught, of course).

No. I have 20 deer here. They don't eat grass plants. Cows and horses I've yet to see. There is an exploding deer population all over..

That's not what I've heard from people round these parts, but I wouldn't know first hand.

If all someone sees and hears and feels when they're young and very impressionable, is nothing but guns and gun shots and hookers and needles and robbery and cocaine and stabbings and arson and pills and financial desperation and needles and back stabbing punk gangsters and gang fights and endless peer pressures to follow along and be dragged down with them...

Guess f###en whats probably gonna happen to them when they get older? a doomed and angry and disillusioned product of their miserable and inescapable environment, all too friggin often!

All we are is a handful of hard to pronounce chemicals and water so no wonder so many human bodies and brains naturally crave drugs and feel the misery of sudden withdrawl...

Along with addictive and non addictive personalities, raised by either kind and loving or abusive parents, who teach and display empathy and compassion, or hate and self destructive behavior...

Temporarily escaping the mostly evil reality of this fallen world withering away in decay after working like a tax slave all week isnt very hard for someone to wanna do...

Unless you live strangled by the wrath of the iron fisted oppression of a tyrannical country that demonizes illegal drugs and illegal drug users...

Then you've got to live under a f###en rock because a bunch of people running around happy and high all day are not easy to dominate and control...

While realizing and remembering that around eighty percent of prison inmates were raised in loveless broken homes...

If I ever take up smoking medical marijuana, I will combine it with this 4 herbal blend and use a water pipe or a vaporizer.

◾A blend of herbs that soothe the lungs can be rolled and smoked with cannabis. We recommended (as well as offer) an herbal smoking blend made up of the following 4 herbs: damiana, coltsfoot, mullein, and peppermint. We do not recommend rolling cannabis wtih tobacco.

I am not looking for a daily high, just a daily feeling good Hi.

Uh huh, the vaporizer may be the way I should go, along with mixing other lung-healthy herbs in with it. The withdrawal symptoms are also said (second vid below) much less.







Drier herbs vape better, interesting.

Vaping is supposed to be far better for you, but no one gets cancer from smoking it the common way. Tons of studies prove it's an anti carcinogenic that actually targets cancer cells.

The trick now would be convincing my doc to license me. I have to do more research.

True. But vaping is more efficient due to the very low boiling point of cannabinoids. Traditional methods using fire destroys a lot of the goodness.
