Blunt, smoking marijuana with tobacco
Some people are convinced that smoking a joint or the mixture of marijuana and tobacco, provides a super euphoric effect and makes you feel better than ever. Others insist that the repercussion of such a mixture can undo all the positive effects and make you miserable afterwards.
The spliff effect
The mixture of tobacco and marijuana has its own name “porro” or better said “blunt”. It is a regular marijuana cigarette covered with a tobacco leaf, that is why it is called Blunt or also blunt paper joint, each one calls it differently, here we will call it “ joint ” or “blunt”, but we know that we are talking about rolling marijuana on blunt paper. The flavor may be different because we are combining an hour of tobacco with marijuana.
There is a reason why joints are so popular. The cannabinoids in marijuana have a powerful psychoactive “feel good” feeling, along with a muscle relaxing effect. Nicotine chemicals cause an instantly dizzy feeling that puts you in a calm and optimistic state.
Since both tobacco and THC have a euphoric effect, you can expect to achieve this special state of happiness after smoking a joint. It is a slightly sedative, relaxing effect, but without bottleneck of the head. Of course, the effect on each person is different, but in most cases, a joint will leave you relaxed, you will have quiet conversations, and you can focus on the details.
Marijuana has already been shown to be effective in treating many debilitating diseases and illnesses, including cancer. Scientists are now looking for ways to treat marijuana addiction.
Influence of tobacco on THC
One of the most surprising facts about joints was discovered during the study by researchers at the Institute of Biology in the Netherlands in 2009. They found that smoking a mixture of tobacco and marijuana significantly increases the amount of THC.
The researchers compared the result of a set of smoking pure marijuana and a joint, in which the marijuana content was only 25% of the mix.
While the THC level with marijuana was pure at approximately 32.70 milligrams per gram, it increased to 58.90 milligrams per gram with the cannabis-tobacco blend. This made the authors of the study conclude that tobacco had the ability to increase the vaporization efficiency of THC by approximately 45%, something really surprising.
Mix of marijuana and tobacco, effects of THC
This means that the mix of marijuana and tobacco makes the effects of THC feel significantly faster, and the effect will be much stronger compared to just marijuana.
Smoking tobacco has become so common that few people take it as a problem, it is very common in our society. Along with alcohol, tobacco is closely connected with the modern lifestyle, and through the media, marketing and advertising, it takes its place as a cultural phenomenon, something so normal that we do not realize it.
A conflict of two ingredients
Smoking a joint or blunt can bring a special flavor, unlike anything else caused by the different effects of tobacco and cannabis, a really suggestive mix.
The nicotine in the blunt causes a dizzy feeling as it stimulates the production of adrenaline. This causes your heart to beat faster and the blood pressure increases. This feeling is similar to that when you feel highly motivated to do something and feel the need to do it now or never.
At the same time, the THC compound in cannabis usually makes the person more meditative. It can also provide laughter or philosophical reflections. This type of state requires a calm environment, magnificent sensations when smoking a joint or blunt.
Tobacco less attractive to the body
Another thing is the damage that tobacco causes to your body. This is very serious, and the most dangerous consequence you could get after smoking tobacco is lung cancer. However, such a monstrous disease develops only if you smoke tobacco often and regularly.
Normally, blunt smokers do not do it as many times a day as tobacco smokers can. Smokers of the blunt, which is a mixture of marijuana with rolling tobacco, usually do it several times a day, and in most cases once a day just before going to sleep.
Unlike marijuana, tobacco is known to cause health problems, such as asthma, various diseases of the teeth and gums. It doesn’t sound very good, so you should understand the risks before doing a joint or blunt as normal every day.
Smoking marijuana or vaporizing marijuana
As with everything surrounding the cannabis plant, the question of whether it helps keep the lungs healthy remains quite controversial. Many scientists studied the effects that smoking marijuana or vaporizing marijuana can have on people. The results show that there are both positive and negative consequences.
As we mentioned earlier, smoking every day a lot is not good, tobacco smoke is very harmful to health. The trick is to smoke but they are excesses, since the more cigarettes we smoke a day or the more joints we smoke a day will be harmful to health, the question is not to overdo it, all excesses are bad.
Joint smoking, blunt smoking less dangerous than tobacco smoking
Due to the stronger effect, joints or blunts are not so easy to smoke one after another. In most cases, people do not smoke joint during work time and prefer to smoke occasionally in a circle of friends or with a drink. This significantly reduces the risks involved because you smoke occasionally and not continuously. The less frequently the smoke from the mixture of tobacco and cannabis, the better it is for your health.
Blunt smokers choose quiet moments, they choose good marijuana buds to smoke the blunt and they also choose a good tobacco to roll the joint or blunt. The forms are taken care of, and the materials to smoke relaxed and with good company.
Normal cigarettes have filters, while blunts or blunts usually don’t. Filters prevent carcinogenic tars from getting into your lungs, and while smoking a joint, the amount of these chemicals is much higher compared to a traditional tobacco cigarette with a filter.
People who live in states where recreational marijuana is legal should choose their marijuana dose well so as not to harm their health. A group of researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas found that long-term cannabis use is linked to disturbances in the brain’s nervous system.
Is there a safe way to smoke a joint or blunt?
Most people who like joint or blunt smoking insist that all of tobacco’s bad influence is offset by the anti-cancer properties of cannabis. In fact, cannabinoids can have benefits for cancer treatment and some cancer related side effects. Adding a little cannabis to your tobacco cigarette may actually have less of a negative impact on your health, but it won’t completely counter it.
However, it is not only the ingredients that you smoke, but also the way that smoke plays an important role in the development of cancer. The use of a vaporizer, a hookah, or the consumption of edible products does not have any risk for your lung health, but you only have to vaporize with cannabis.
There is no scientific evidence as to what is most dangerous, smoking tobacco cigarettes or joints, but if you consume a mixture of cannabis and tobacco without excess and using filters, there are plenty of reasons to believe that the risks are low.
Tobacco and marijuana use is unsafe
There is no way to consume tobacco and marijuana in a 100% safe way, so if you want to enjoy the special effects of this mixture, do it in moderation. Using this mixture from time to time will not kill you, but in any case, you should know about the risks involved both when it comes to smoking tobacco, and the mixture of tobacco leaf with cannabis, the blunt.
I personally do not consider smoking tobacco blunt with marijuana a pleasant thing, the ideal is to consume a joint of marijuana, if there are excess marijuana in the joint, but the taste of marijuana alone is much more pleasant than marijuana with tobacco.
Cigars and Blunt, what’s the connection?
There are significant amounts of nicotine in the fermented tobacco leaves that form the layer of a blunt – those layers are used for both blunt and blunt cigarettes. One analysis found that in five cigarette wraps that are often used to blunt, there were nicotine concentrations ranging from 1.2 to 6 mg per cigarette. Similar to the 1.1 mg to 1.8 mg of an average cigarette.
A cigar can also offer a flavor dimension that appeals to teens, from vanilla to cognac. Taste is often cited as one of the main reasons teens adopt vaping, and this could also be the case for teens who are switching from non-alcoholic cigarettes to cigar use, he says.
Whether it’s the appeal of your favorite star holding a cigarette or the habit of smoking a blunt that makes a cigarette look more attractive, research suggests that blunts can impart much more than a marijuana rush.
