Cannabis smoke contains thousands of organic and inorganic chemical compounds. This tar is chemically similar to that found in tobacco smoke,  and over fifty known carcinogens have been identified in cannabis smoke,  including; nitrosamines, reactive aldehydes, and polycylic hydrocarbons, including benz[a]pyrene.  Light and moderate use of cannabis is not believed to increase risk of lung or upper airway cancer. Evidence for causing these cancers is mixed concerning heavy, long-term use. In general there are far lower risks of pulmonary complications for regular cannabis smokers when compared with those of tobacco.  Combustion products are not present when using a vaporizer , consuming THC in pill form, or consuming cannabis edibles .
I was diagnosed with arthritis and would wake up at nights in intense pain and use rubs on my knees and be in constant pain when I walked, then I started eating some really hot pepper I had gotten from a friend. ( As a West Indian pepper is a household staple but I wasn’t using it on a regular basis) I realized that my pain was becoming less intense and my body would feel warm from within so I have continued to have a teaspoon of hot pepper sauce with my meals ( I can eat really hot pepper) And I can say that I have more movement of my joints than I’ve had in a long time. I even sleep better, I also don’t have indigestion. I will continue to enjoy my hot pepper. Also the sauce isn’t hard to make, just blend some pepper with mustard a little vinegar an some water, it must not be too liquid, ketchup consistency and enjoy.
Thank you, Ann. Bt, a biomanufactured pesticide is killing. It paralyzes the gut. It is also harmful to humans and causes muscle and brain wasting. The toxic protein cannot be encapsulated by the machrophage. It is used in 80% of the world on crops, trees etc to kill bugs. Monsanto has added other vectors with it to make it more lethal. Fight this wherever you can until the information gets to the proper sources. Read “Silent Spring” about pesticides. Rachel Carson, the author, stopped DDT. We must stop this too. Save the Honey Bees, save the planet’s creatures and save the children. WE CAN DO IT!
