How to detox from marijuana

Marijuana can be used for medicinal or entertainment purposes, but it may also prevent you from passing an important pre-employment drug test unless you know how to detox from it. So, what are the most trustworthy ways to get marijuana out of your system and how much time does it take to detox?

Drug tests often involve urinalysis, blood or saliva tests aimed at detecting metabolites of THC. Cannabinoids are normally accumulated in the system (hair follicles and finger nails included!) with the speed that depends on the number of factors: the frequency of use, the drug potency, the body fat rate, overall health, metabolism rates, and the amount of physical activity. You need to know that it will take up to several weeks for the body to do the job and remove all the weed traces. Alternatively, if you lack time before a drug test, you can assist the body in a number of ways and detox from marijuana much faster. Here are the three basic ways to choose from.

Reasons to Use a Marijuana Tincture?

tinctureThe following are some reasons why you should use a marijuana tincture.

Of course, if you use a marijuana tincture, you will lose some of the social aspects that smoking gives you. But marijuana tinctures are more private, secretive and efficient.

1 – Easy to take: Marijuana tinctures do not generate any smoke or dirt unlike smoking. They are good for those that are so sick that they can’t swallow or chew easily.

2- No smell: Marijuana tinctures have no unique or recognizable smell. You don’t have to worry about anyone catching you using it.

Best Bud Trimmer Machines

Threebudtrimmer months can be a long time to wait for someone who is very anxious to harvest his crop. And for marijuana plant growers, it is best to contain one’s excitement so as not to harm the remaining baby buds along the process. Trimming them can be a challenge unless you have a good pair of shears. Better prepare two of these tools in case one of them breaks. Asking a friend to help with the harvest will make it not just a less stressful event but makes it fun at the same time.

Humulene Terpene

Humulene is a secondary terpene found in low concentrations in the cannabis plant and its essential oil. However, humulene is the primary terpene found in the hops plants used to make beer and its aroma is what gives beer its “hoppy” smell. The scientific name for hops is Humulus lupulus and this is where humulene gets its common name. Other names for humulene used in scientific nomenclature include α-humulene and α-caryophyllene.

Humulene was one of the primary medicines used by the ancient Chinese. It has been widely thought for centuries to be a very strong anti-inflammatory agent, as well as a strong anti-bacterial agent. Thus, it can be useful in treating infections and their effect on the human body (inflammation, etc). For these reasons, humulene has been studied more than most secondary terpenes found in cannabis. Humulene is also often combined with β–caryophyllene as an alternative treatment for inflammation. However, full spectrum CBD oil contains both humulene and β–caryophyllene in ratios relative to one another that are naturally occuring in nature.

Pulegone Terpene

Although pulegone is a terpene present in relatively low concentrations in cannabis, it packs a powerful pepperminty camphorous punch! If you’ve ever walked by a large rosemary bush and accidentally brushed your arm against it as you did so, then you’ve smelled pulegone in all its glory as it is a major component of this highly fragrant herb. While you may enjoy taking deep breaths of its pleasant aroma, insects are repelled by it. For this reason, pulegone (and rosemary bushes) are often used to deter biting insects in backyards and along decks and porches. Pulegone is also a powerful insecticide that naturally occurs in most mint species, including peppermint, spearmint, and catnip (Nepeta cataria).

Pulegone is a popular terpene addition to aromatherapy candles, especially those that promise that the effect will “linger” for a long time after the candle is put out. It has the ability to produce a calming and sedative effect on most people who inhale it. Therefore, it is often used by people with social anxiety and performance anxiety to prepare for an event. In cannabis strains that are a bit higher in pulegone (but never high in pulegone), this pleasant smelling terpene can make vaping their essential oils a more pleasant experience, especially since it also seems to combine in pleasant ways with other aromatic terpenes. Pulegone is often added to hard candy as well, not only for the taste, but for the strong aroma it gives off as one sucks on the candy contaning pulegone.

Geraniol Terpene

Geraniol is a terpene found in cannabis with a sweet very pleasant floral aroma similar to that of a rose. In fact, the perfume industry switched from using rose petal extracts to using geraniol in many perfumes because they smell so similar. Although geraniol is known to attract honey bees, it is also used as an insect repellent for mosquitos.

Since the 1990s, geraniol has been talked about in both scientific literature and in publications like Mother Earth Living as an effective alternative cancer treatment. It brings hope to those suffering with cancer.
Early studies on geraniol showed remarkable results. Liver cancer was stopped cold in rats that received 400 micromoles of geraniol in their food daily. Mammary tumors in rodents were also halted with a similar dosage. It was also found that liver cancer in birds could be stopped by giving geraniol. Perhaps the most remarkable results of the early studies on geraniol was to show that it could stop the growth pancreatic cancer in hamsters. A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer at that time was a near death sentence because there was only a four percent survival rate within five years of being diagnosed. These terrible odds haven’t improved much today in fact. Keep in mind that geraniol is a terpene that occurs naturally in cannabis and is present in full spectrum CBD oil.

What are Terpenes?

The technical definition of a terpenes probably won’t clear much up, but here it is:  Any of a large group of volatile, unsaturated hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants, especially conifers and citrus trees.  They are based on a cyclic molecule having the formula C10H16.  They are the main plant resin  or “essential oils” and contribute to the scent, flavor and colors of plants.

Here is a short video from Leafly, an recognized industry partner, with an Introduction on Terpenes that Relate to Cannabis

Buy THC to relax.

As that video closes with, Terpenes are The Next Frontier of Discovery.
The easiest way to get your mind around them (albeit not 100% correct) is to think of them as essential oils.  Essential oils typically have effects on people.  For instance, Lavender typically causes one to be sleepy.  Various terpenes also have effects on people.  And, that’s what we’re aiming for…their effects.  For most people, they are subtle effects, but they are definite effects none the less.
