Mark had started smoking cigarettes when he was still in high school. Being a disciplined, bright boy who listened to his lovely parents and teachers, Mark kept a good company. When he was barely 17, Mark met a beautiful girl at his friend’s birthday party.
Ashley was friendly and well cultured. They liked each other and became friends immediately. Mark did not actually know that this day would completely change his life completely. At the end of the party, Ashley asked Mark to accompany her so she could check on her friend outside the house. At the car park, William, Ashley’s friend was busy smoking a cigarette.
Ashley then took out two cigarettes from her back pocket and handed one to Mark. The innocent teenager hesitated to accept the offer but later decided to try it. This night would be the start of Mark’s journey to becoming an addict. Three years later, Mark was a chain smoker and his efforts to abandon the stimulant did not bear fruits.
Mark had been smoking and struggling to drop the habit for more than thirty years. When he realized that his life was deteriorating, he went to see his doctor. Mark’s smoking habit had damaged his heart and blood circulation. Furthermore, Mark was already suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease - lung diseases such as emphysema, and chronic bronchitis.
His doctor advised him to quit before his lungs and heart were overwhelmed. But Mark had been trying to stop for many years but he was unable. It was not until he tried electronic cigarettes starter kit, and guess what? Mark was able to stop smoking.

People that come from states where marijuana is illegal have a “better” option, in the name of chemical weed. Its main advantages include its inability to show up in urine samples and the incredible high that a user gets. However, as it becomes obvious to the users later on, these advantages are short-lived as synthetic weed has very dire consequences.
Many synthetic drugs made after legal natural ones are legal and authorized by the FDA, but not synthetic marijuana. So if you take it, you are putting yourself at risk by taking something that is in the market illegally and something that can cause serious health risks, including death.
You will find synthetic weed in many different names like Spice and K2 being the most popular. It will try to sell as marijuana or a real sister to marijuana, but there is no relationship at all between the real marijuana and this stuff.
Yet people continue taking it. Why is that? Because of the only reason why many people take marijuana, to get a kick, a high like they have never experienced before. Believe it or not, a weed high is not something to take lightly because people have traveled to countries where smoking weed is legal. Thus, considering the gap between supply and the demand of the marijuana high, well, something was bound to start happening sooner than later. And it did. In the name of Spice, K2.
So how does K2 work? Just about the same way that the natural weed works, by binding the CB1 receptors in the brain and giving you a crazy high as a result. However, with the synthetic weed which is not natural but a chemical that also attaches to the same CB1 receptors with more effect than the natural cannabinoids.
Research has shown that chemical weed is up to 100 times more powerful than the natural cannabinoids. Therefore, it is only logical for one to expect the side effects to be as many times more dangerous. Vomiting, sight blackouts, high blood pressure, kidney problems, severe headaches, fast heart rates, chest pains and many more problems, including psychosis and death have been reported.
During the highly sophisticated process of the production of chemical cannabis, many things could go wrong. A higher than recommended portion of some of the solvents and chemicals used in the process can turn this drug to a killer. You sure do not want that.
Be careful of any packages that you find labeled “Not For Human Consumption” because it is definitely for human consumption. If you are traveling, do not even think of packing one into your hiking backpack because even if the authorities do not detect it, you will definitely do yourself more harm than good.
One smoke of the synthetic cannabinoids and you could be setting yourself up for an emergency room visit, or the grave. If natural weed is not legal in your state, you are better off not smoking anything. Wait until it is made legal.
And then there was shisha. When it hit my city Nairobi, it hot it big and clean shisha smoking parlors started cropping up. At the beginning, this was a luxury left to the women, and girlfriends of the well-to-do neighborhoods, in the leafy green suburb.
So what is this so-popular Shisha? Most importantly, is it true that it contains no tobacco? Mostly when you go looking for information about Shisha on the internet, you will no doubt come across a grinning Arab. He is happy, he has smoked Shisha. Can you be this happy?
To tell you the truth, personally, I think Shisha is a glorified way of smoking tobacco. Ok, so there are some other substances that you can smoke, you know, all herbal and stuff… but tobacco too is herbal, isn’t it? And so is weed.
Shisha, also referred to as hubble bubble, waterpipe, hookah and narghile has been a favorite for many young adults in the UK. Most of them said that they found it a very sociable event. It may not be in the same caliber as the popular afternoon tea custom, but it is right there…
The British Heart Foundation says that smoking shisha is as serious as smoking a traditional cigarette. Most smokers delude themselves that shisha is not as addictive as the cigarette because the water in the pipe absorbs some of the nicotine. If you are of that school of thought, you need to ask someone who is trying to quit Shisha.
Out of every ten lung cancer deaths, 8 are caused by smoking. Go figure on that one. But then, you say:
But I only do herbal Shisha
For your information, herbal Shisha is as herbal as they come, but it contains tobacco. Therefore, it is not any safer from the cigarettes or from the regular shisha. However, should in the rare and extreme case be a shisha that truly does not contain tobacco, well, you are still in danger of inhaling carbon monoxide from the materials used to burn your shisha.
So you are not very safe. In addition, in the shisha parlors, there will be other people using tobacco in their shisha and you will end up inhaling their smoke. That too puts you at risk.
So what actually am I smoking most of the time?
It is tobacco, masked in the alluring flavor of your choice. This means that the tobacco is flavored with mint, cola, plum, mango, apple and other flavors. It can also be sweetened with sugar. If you are smoking pure tobacco, then that means you are taking in all the carcinogens that a regular cigarette smoker inhales. Add to this tar, and serious addiction to boot.
Because smoking shisha is considered as having social time with mates, well, you can hang around in the shisha bar for even more than one hour. Experts say that by that time, you will have inhaled smoke that is equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes.
You will run out of breath fast
Let us assume you love jogging. Once you take up Shisha, you will notice a drop in your pace or in the distance that you would normally run. You can also end up coughing so seriously and some users have even reported coughing blood.
A thousand flavors to choose from
That is right, any fruit that comes to your mind, there is a shisha flavor for it, even coconut. Banana, guava, kiwi, strawberry, grape, lemon, peach, pineapple, blueberry, water melon, sweet melon and many others. There is a flavor for everyone no matter how choosy you are.
Can shisha help me stop smoking?
Well, it seems no one can answer this precisely. However, seeing as Shisha is addictive too, it would be better to aid yourself by using patch, or some other method.
There… seems the only good thing you have going for Shisha is its numerous fruity flavors, the social smoking atmosphere and not much else. You can order pure herbal shisha online.
Eating weed cookies for the first time… should be fun, no? Or maybe it is not fun. Are you willing to try it today, that is, if you are like a total newbie who has never ever smoked weed? Well, I guess it should be fun.
Now, with the war in drugs losing out fast, it is clear that weed lovers will be on the clear run soon. We all concede that weed is a very lucrative business for the government and they just had to find a way to start taxing it, or something. But that is not why you are reading this. You are here because you want to know how to eat weed for the very first time.
Start small, really small
Now, I know when you hear about marijuana cookies you only think about what you have seen on the movies. However, weed comes in more edible forms than just a cookie. Well, a cookie is good of course, and everyone loves cookies, especially chocolate cookies. However, you should also know something, that the bigger it is, the more marijuana power it packs!
And you do not know how much marijuana in a cookie your system can handle. So, you should start small. Thankfully, today, weed comes in many edible forms, some as small as lozenges. Yes, something that you can just pop in your mouth and go smooching on it.
Other edible forms include but are not limited to candy, sweets, gummy bears and the cookies of course. Now, in the state of Colorado, weed cookies are legal, readily available and anyone who is of age can choose to eat them, or not. The same also applies in Washington.
Weed is stronger when you eat it
Well, that is the truth. Vaporizing and smoking have nothing on eating it, or eating the brownies as this experience is referred to. This means that you should eat small. You see that small cookie you see there? Yes, that one! That one packs 60 mg of Mary J. Now, that is quite something and it could have you tripping over so fast you would not know what hit you.
Some even pack 200 mg. That is the kind of package that makes even weed worshiper like Snoop Dogg lose his bounce. It is crazy but hey, life is for the living, isn’t it?
All we are saying is, just do not go testing your limit on marijuana cookies. Be patient, start small, very small on them and then you can grow with it.
How about if I have been smoking it for years? Well, maybe you could take a bigger portion than the total newbie, but know that when you eat it, it is much stronger than when you smoke it. So mind the portions, or you will laugh all the way home.
The main benefit of eating marijuana edibles
You will not feel the effects right away. Remember, it will be digested the same way as food, then it will get into your bloodstream. Once it kicks in, you are in for the long haul since the weed will stay active for even more than 4 hours.
What fools do – When the kick is delayed, they continue taking more thinking the first cookie was not effective. And then when the effects start kicking in, they come like damned avalanches, one on top of another and you topple over.
That is when you know that marijuana cookie is not a respecter of persons.
Here is how you will most likely know it has kicked in
Note that these are just a few of the experiences and anyway, they differ from one person to another. But the energy, well, that will be something else.
Eating marijuana cookies will help you if:
You suffer from chronic pain, nausea and lack of appetite. You can start eating again and regain your health.
You do not want to smoke anymore – Why smoke when you can eat it?
The cannabis cloning industry has been growing exponentially in the last one decade. Thanks to the pioneers in this industry, today, a lot of resources like books, videos, guides, articles and others are available for beginners.
Cloning is not a new concept in crop rearing or in the growth of cannabis. When you need the same strain of cannabis, just clone! Cut a stem, plant it, give it the right environment and it blooms. Sounds simple, but it is actually more complicated than that.
Given the right conditions as the parent plant and with the genetic prowess of the parent intact, your clones will do very well. You can make a full garden of cannabis from cloning. You just need one high quality mother plant. From it, you can get several cuttings and grow them.
These cloned plants will not be any different from the parent plant. They will share mom’s potency, maturity rate, smell and even taste. However, this is only possible when you give the cloned plants the same conditions of growth as the mother plant.
The cannabis cloning industry is rich in information
Research! That is where your cloning success starts. Read widely. Do not start your cloning project blindly.
Ok, firstly, you want to have the healthiest strain of marijuana around. So you get the best seeds. How do you know they are the best cannabis seeds? From research. Read reviews online. Then you plant your seeds, they germinate.
But you do not want to buy seeds next time. You want to “asexually reproduce” your plants. That way, you save money, and time! Thankfully, the cannabis cloning industry is wide and has everything that you need to succeed.
The cutting tool
You require a cutting tool like a pair of scissors, a sharp knife, a razor blade or a scalpel. Cannabis is very sensitive. Why do you think it is used in medicine, huh? So make sure you sterilize the cutting tool, just rub it clean with a piece of cloth dipped in alcohol.
Choose a healthy plant for your cuttings. Remember, the mother plant will transfer some of her mojo to the new plants. So you want one that is robust in health – the right color, the right size and the right age.
Ok, now in detail:
Make sure the mother plant is 4 weeks old, somewhere immediately before flowering. Make sure she has been growing in less than 18 hours of light a day to delay flowering a bit.
Now to the actual cutting
Razor blade is ready, sterile and sharp. The mom plant is here, robust of growth and cannabinoids. Where do you cut?
Select the branch that is at the lowest part of the plant, close to the bottom. There is a reason for this. Hormones are concentrated at the lower parts of your cannabis plants.
Cut at a 45° angle, a sharp angle. If you like, you can label the cutting according to the plant that it came from. Make sure the cutting has sufficient, but few leaves. The more leaves there are, the more the nutrients that it will require. You want just enough for photosynthesis.
After cutting, place the clone in your rooting solution immediately. That increases its chances of rooting tremendously. Again, this is where the cannabis cloning industry comes in, to provide you with the right rooting solution. Please avoid the homemade rooting solutions if you’re a beginner cloner.
Transplanting your cannabis clones
Transplant the cutting, assuming you have already chosen the cloning method. Mostly, there are three of them – potted soil, rockwool and water method. While rockwool and soil work the same way, water cloning is different so you would have to study widely about that. After transplanting, just take good care of your clones by regulating the lighting.
Minimal research in the cannabis cloning industry will show you the most popular full spectrum LED grow lights. Place these lights at least 2½ feet away from the clones. Any closer than that and the clones will start flowering too soon. Regulate the humidity too, keep it a bit high so the leaves do not wilt.
