What Are The Most Common Side Effects While Using Cannabis?
Cannabis strains affect people differently, which is why it takes some time and experimentation to find a strain that perfectly suits your needs whether you’re a medical or recreational user. One strain that is perfect for one person (good buzz and no negative effects) may have the opposite impact on another (headaches, dry eyes).
The human body is so complex that despite the sheer amount of knowledge we have today about cannabis, cannabinoids, and its effect on the human body, there’s still so much work to be done. There’s virtually no way to predict how a strain is going to affect a person. However, it pays to be informed about the most common side effects that certain strains can give you, why it happens, and what you can do about it.
Solution: Hydration is key in preventing dry eyes; keep your body well-hydrated by drinking a lot of water before and while you medicate. Try to avoid screen time when you’re high; prolonged exposure to brightly-lit computer screens and your smart phone may increase the incidence of dry eyes. Also, the most useful and effective solution to treating dry eyes quickly is to use some eye drops.
Solution:The most effective way to prevent your risk for developing red eyes is to opt for cannabis strains that are low in THC. Stay hydrated, use some eye drops, or just put an ice pack on top of your eyes for 5 minutes.
Solution: Stay hydrated and drink lots of water before and while you medicate. Sucking on hard candy and lollipops can also help alleviate cotton mouth in a delicious way!
Another study conducted by Canadian scientists also suggest that cannabis may enhance fear-based learning because it activates pathways in the amygdala. They found that THC intensified how animal models reacted to smells that they were trained to be afraid of. But until now, it still remains unknown why the cannabinoid receptors in the amygdala cause it to act that way. However, the team also said that regular cannabis use can desensitize the receptors in the amygdala over time, possibly explaining why newbie cannabis users are more prone to paranoia than cannabis enthusiasts who have been using it for years.
Solution: Smoke strains that are low in THC; if you’re a novice user, don’t attempt to start using strains high in THC, best to gradually increase until you’re used to its effects. Go easy on dosing; perhaps try microdosing before you start taking huge hits of strains you aren’t familiar with.
Studies also show that some cannabis strains have constituents that can cause vasodilation in some parts of the brain, which can increase blood pressure as well as heart rate; both of which can lead t a headache.
Solution: If you are prone to headaches, opt for organic weed and avoid strains that are prone to giving headaches. Take small doses at a time and hydrate before and during your session.
Most important takeaway: Do your research on the strains you smoke before you consume them. Cannabis.net has a database of tons of strains detailing possible negative effects; this way you can reduce the chances of these unwanted effects before you consume them.
