In recent years, the law regarding the use of marijuana for medical purposes has undergone tremendous changes. However, because cannabis is a highly regulated substance, it is not easy to obtain research permits.
A team of researchers from the University of Chicago, Illinois (UIC) and the University of Chicago, Illinois passed a legislation investigating the effects of THC on stress.
They want to test the adage that cannabis can help people relax and relieve stress. Although there is a lot of anecdotal evidence, there is very little scientific research on this issue.
As Emma Childs, associate professor of psychiatry at UIC School of Medicine, said, “There are very few published studies that focus on the effects of THC on stress, or the effects of different levels of THC on stress.”
Stress can affect your health.
Stress will quickly get out of control, and the impact on our health may be toxic.
Stress can affect our health in many ways, causing some major problems, such as:
Stress has many other common effects on your body, mood and behavior, from headaches to muscle tension and chest pain, fatigue, sleep problems, irritability, anxiety, lack of motivation, etc.
All of these things may get out of control and gradually escalate until our health is completely out of control. Many of the health problems we face may be directly related to stress, and you may not even realize it.
In addition to the most important stress reduction measures such as exercise, nutrition, laughter, friendship, family, adventure, and better organization of oneself, there are other methods that are moderately used and very effective: cannabis.
Marijuana can be a good helper. It can change your state, divert your energy, trigger an epiphany, and show self-correction, just as it can help you relax after a long day.
For anyone who uses marijuana to relieve stress, here are some basic precautions, and you may want to remember to make the most of it.
Dose level cannabis
Everyone has their own ideal cannabis dosage range. Some people like it very little, and some like to spend as much as possible!
The Chicago team studied the decompression effects of 42 healthy volunteers aged 18 to 40 who took different doses of THC.
Volunteers are divided into three groups. The low-dose group received 7.5 mg of THC in capsule form. The middle-dose group was given 12.5 mg THC capsules, while the placebo group was given THC-free capsules.
Compared with those who received a placebo, those who received low-dose THC reported less stress after the test. After the test, the pressure level of the low-dose group dropped faster. Compared with the placebo group, the moderate group showed more negative emotions and more pause time before and during the test. The important thing to remember here is that cannabis has biphasic characteristics. Essentially, this means that low doses and high doses will have the opposite effect.
For example, if you take marijuana because of pain or nausea, a small amount can help relieve symptoms, while taking too much can aggravate symptoms.
If you use it to manage stress, it seems the same.
In short, excessive use of marijuana can lead to reduced benefits and greater side effects (anxiety, paranoia, fatigue, social withdrawal).
This is where you try to administer medicine. You can find the most suitable method for you and the unsuitable method.
So, for example, if you find that marijuana makes you anxious, you might try to reduce your intake next time. If that doesn’t help, your next choice is to find a different kind of cannabis entirely or try different forms (such as food, e-cigarettes, etc.). ).
Trying different dosage levels and methods of administration can also help people who use cannabis for a long time but no longer get the same benefits.
settings and settings
”setting and setting” may be a very strange term, but it is very important for any psychological experience, and it has been very mature in the field of hallucinogenic drugs. It summarizes the psychological, social, and cultural parameters that shape and determine the response to psychedelics.
”Settings” refers to the mentality when you enter the experience, and “Settings” refers to the environment you are in.
Focusing on these two things will allow you to determine the best time or situation to relieve stress (and how long you should wait).
Settings and settings knowledge also allow you to better manage your cannabis experience in different ways. Equally important, it will help you determine your intention to use marijuana in the first place.
Your goal may be to identify specific challenges you face in your work or personal life. Or it might be to connect with friends or relatives, to get closer—or just for fun.
Interesting setting and setting ideas for cannabis:
When hiking, put on noise-canceling headphones and listen to the exhilarating mystery music
Listen to some jazz or podcasts while cleaning the room.
Lying on the floor in a dark room (a place you are familiar with), listening to his heartbeat.
Take your partner’s hand and walk in the park.
Consider variables such as space arrangement, music, lighting, food supply, etc., to ensure you have a good time.
The more thoughts and creativity you put into the scene, the more benefits and stress you get from marijuana.

Avoid the stigma of cannabis
Many responsible adult cannabis consumers experience the stigma of cannabis every day.
It is true that marijuana is more and more accepted by society, but there are still many people who think that it is wrong to smoke marijuana and belong to college students or drug users.
realizes what this is a shame. This is the result of decades of government propaganda and misinformation. It is very important that no one should be ashamed of using marijuana in a responsible way. Humans have used cannabis for thousands of years. This is nothing new.
When we drink a glass or two of wine or start the day with caffeine, we are not ashamed. Why is hemp different?
The desire to change our mindset is very humane, and it is the right of all of us. The most important thing is to do a good job and deal with these changed states from an informed perspective.
Fortunately, as the stigma subsided, the stigma of cannabis became less important.
Marijuana makes you tall or not tall.
More and more people know that they can try marijuana to avoid the influence of mental activity.
The non-psychoactive use of cannabis can be achieved in several different ways.
One way is to use CBD-rich products, which will not excite you and will definitely help some people cope with stress and anxiety.
Another way to avoid high is to simply use a very small dose that will not let you exceed the threshold of mental activity. These sub-psychoactive doses can significantly relieve stress and can still be used as preventive health measures.
At the same time, we should encourage people not to be afraid of high marijuana.
Admittedly, it is not suitable for everyone, but the occasional orgasm can help bring some clarity and look at things in a different way, which is also very important to relieve stress!
