Marijuana, the perfect partner to enhance your yoga session – Part 1

To enjoy a moment of relaxation, the paths are different. Go out for a nice walk, put some good music or enjoy a tasty meal. We can also choose to meditate and practice yoga, disciplines that add more and more followers.

Its benefits are strikingly familiar to us: clear the mind, body relaxation, and connection with nature … You probably already have guessed, is quite similar to what you get when we consume marijuana. There are few who have already tried what happens when these two passions intertwine.

No doubt, we congratulations and therefore that marijuana gets its way slowly to all kinds of environments. In the world of yoga, as elsewhere, there are those who continue to show somewhat skeptical and reluctant to acceptance, but also many yogis (name given to people who practice the discipline) receive with open arms.

It occupies combination of intense discussions between the two communities. There is a basic agreement that yoga should serve to find freedom from suffering through the unification of body, mind and spirit. Of course, the means by which point we find this practice varies in practice. While some say that the development of concentration can be impaired by cannabis, there is also who says the opposite and says that marijuana can further explore our body and with less mental and physical barriers.

Despite this disagreement, it seems undeniable that yoga and marijuana have the potential to become teammates; they share a lot of benefits. To realize this need only look at our own history. Yoga is an ancient discipline from India based on the development of spiritual awareness, synonymous connection and oneness with nature. Cannabis, meanwhile, is a plant that many civilizations have used in rituals and ceremonies precisely the same purpose.

Cannabis does not cause schizophrenia according to a study by Harvard University

A new study conducted at Harvard University can help rule out concerns about the link between cannabis use and schizophrenia. While many still debate the possibility that cannabis can cause schizophrenia, researchers at Harvard Medical School say that “even lack conclusive evidence that cannabis can cause psychosis”.

Their latest study, published last week in the journal Schizophrenia Research, adds importance to the role of genetic factors in schizophrenia, and claims that cannabis itself not only increases the risk of developing it.

“In summary, we conclude saying that cannabis by itself does not cause psychosis. In genetically susceptible individuals, while cannabis can modify the disease onset, severity and treatment outcome, according to this study there is no evidence that it can be the cause of psychosis.

“The team, led by Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School Dr. Lynn DeLisi, compared the family histories of 108 schizophrenic patients and 171 individuals without schizophrenia to determine whether cannabis use was a factor in the development of the disorder. They found that a family history of schizophrenia increases the risk of developing schizophrenia, regardless of whether or not individual consumption of cannabis.

The authors concluded that “the results of this study suggest that having more family-morbid risk for schizophrenia may be the fundamental basis for the disorder in cannabis and cannabis not in itself”.

Cannabis use is not associated with cognitive impairment in people over 50 years

Researchers have studied the association between illegal drug use and cognitive function in middle adulthood. They have seen that “at the population level, it seems that the current use of illegal drugs is associated with impaired cognitive functioning in early middle age.”

A total of 8,992 participants were interviewed at 42 years old in 1999 and 2000. The authors analyzed data from three cognitive tests when the participants were 50 years old in 2008 and 2009.

Cannabis was by far the most common drug among participants (six percent said they had consumed in the past year), while a quarter said they had never used. Overall, the study found that there was no evidence that current or past drug consumers they had poorer mental function. In fact, when current and past users were analyzed together, the test results tended to be older.

But that advantage was small, the researchers said, and could only reflect another finding: that people who had never used drugs generally had a higher educational level than nonusers. “However, the authors cannot exclude the possibility that some individuals or groups, such as those with a larger or prolonged use, may be harmed,” they write in their article for the American Journal of Epidemiology.

How to avoid a bad trip Cannabis

Given the variety of factors that can influence when living a bad trip, there is little to do to prevent them. However, there is a little recipe that would minimize the chances of checking how this experience.

Everything happens for trying to control the environment the most. Thus, being in a familiar, quiet and surrounded by people confidence that they will not burden you in any case, it is difficult to place the situation gets out of control and that any possible negative experience is only short-term effect. In addition, both enjoy good physical and mental health may be key to avoid yellow, as dizziness or pale skin have much to do with the blood pressure of each.

If our body still responds on occasion with one of those psychedelics to marijuana crisis, there are ways to control the bad trip to avoid greater evils. Both you and those around you can follow a series of recommendations that minimize symptoms.

However, simply try to be relaxed: breathe easy inhaling air through the mouth and exhaling slowly relax each and every one of our muscles and wait for the bad trip pass and the effects diminish. These should be the main objectives. It can also act as we face a brownout and rarely done in when it comes yellow: raise your legs up. The “sugar crash theory” to explain the causes of a bad trip have buried their real causes and corresponding proceed to attenuate.

To achieve this, nothing better to do, at first, that peace reigns around us. No music or television to make something clear mind. In this way, it will be easier to focus on relaxing your body. Once achieved, we can put music to calm us more or we are familiar, or even a movie that we like.

In addition, we recommend changing environment: if we are in a place inside, go outside helps, and vice versa. It is also useful anything that distracts us from our thoughts at that time. Make it a stretch? Can taking some green tea to relax? Ahead. Maybe a juice? Fantastic, hydration is important to consider minimizing the effect factor. All this, considering that the best you can do is try to chat with who accompany us to take the reins of the conversation and put some serenity at the time.
