    I'm having a difficult time finding information specifically about smoking marjiuana. I'm sorry if this is a repetitive question.

    EDIT: I meant to put from smoking marijuana, not to.

  6. Thats a pretty comprehensive list - my grandads memory has got significantly worse in the last couple of years - although cannabis isnt typically associated with increased memory (i can testify to that lol) i read a seattle university study into the effects of cannabanoids on degenerative brain conditions (such as dementia and alzeimers) and it concluded that regular cannabis users are up to 60% less likely to experience such diseases. Gunna try and get him on it when my grans not about :)

    For one, an average 10% increase in lung capacity. I get health benefits from not vomiting 5 times a day from nausea, pain, or passing out from nuerocardiogenic syncope just to name a few. Less than a month ago a study was published in some neurology science paper stating that both smoked and vaporized cannabis are safe, and offered reliefe for chronic pain, ms, and a few other conditions. A second paper was published in Germany recently based on 100 trials with cannabis, showing their therapeutic potential and safety, emphasizing no unequivocally attributable deaths to cannabis or cannabinoid consumption alone, ever.
  8. I know that, not just marijuana smoke but any types of smoke are harmful for the lungs...but, not just smoke, it's how you smoke it that could cause problems as if you roll a blunt, that's cig paper so you're still exposed to that type of shit...or a small pipe could be harmful for the throat cuz you have direct fire going into it...and sometimes when I smoke a pipe my toung feels like it's on fire...safest is digesting opinion.
