This is a good point and one that I'd make on any post like this, or even a post touting the benefits of MJ. Every person is going to react differently. A single study or case, or a handful of cases is not enough to warrant conclusions on it's benefits or potential maladies associated with consuming it. Personally I'd call bull-shit because it's had no effect on me with a lifetime of consumption (57). But that doesn't mean that some people would be harmed by it.
hopefully, the next administration won't share the neanderthalic attitudes of the current admin, and we'll be able to see some large scale studies done, get some real answers to questions that have been out there for a long time.
i LIKE getting high, i enjoy it immensely. but i also have physical and mental issues that it helps me with, more than any medication i've tried.
However, i realize there are some people out there who would be glad for the relief, but don't enjoy the altered perceptions. it would be nice for them if they could take a pill or a tincture and get the relief they need while keeping a clear head, and without all the frightening side effects associated with many pharmaceuticals. but that can't happen without study and experimentation.
That's looking at it short term. If you smoke your hormones will change and try to counter act whatever hardships are going on. Like diebeties, your body tries to over compensate and will produce extra hormones at the expense of minerals and vitamins (needed for healthy sperm). But anyways, back to the actual point of the thread. I heard an enlarged prostate can also be cause by candida(males yeast infection) so I tried cranberry juice and it helped. I also Havnt smoked for three days which, actually, feels great. Been smoking for almost 18years since I was 12 and I finally don't feel the need to smoke. I loved it, shit still do, but there definitely is benefits for smoking less. Like not being controlled by sexual urges and bad bowl movement along with (proven) stronger heart. I'm also going to try colloidal silver water for two weeks (was recommended for enlarged prostate) thanks every one. Can't wait to smoke Sunday
I love your open mindedness but it seems your hesitant to address what it could be doing. Someone who's smoked there whole life wouldn't know how it affects them try stopping and see if you can and with what affects. Also go longer then the pms stage.
I actually don't smoke much, edibles is my medicine and take regular breaks (2-3 days) as I travel for work and can't travel with it. Having regular breaks is a good thing, most should practice it to just clean out a bit, re-gain some tolerance (thereby less needed to get high) and get a different perspective. I can't smoke during the day as I run a business so my actual usage is quite low compared to daily smokers.
So what you're saying is that because you read more into an answer than was intended, then it's the writer's fault? Get a life.
First of all, if you state knowledge in an argument its up to the writer to get there point across, NOT the listener to fill in the blanks. and sorry i thought i was replying to roger a shrubber. Sorry for the confusion. damn this sites confusing. lol Hopefully the abstinence helps. But you should not state that you use pot for 57 seven years when really you've used it for about half thats cuz you take breaks and dont inhale tar. were talking about the effects of over use not responsible use.
because that was me, not him
I have two different convos going. I addressed yours already but then mixed both your reply's together. My apologizes for the confusion.
Not to mention you said you smoked almost every day but now you say you don't.
