Adult Acne: Blasting Zits Into Oblivion

My name is Jamie Turner and when I turned 22, I started to form a horrible case of acne. I used every cleanser and lotion I could find and I even asked my physician for a topical steroid cream to clear up the zits on my face. After six months of treatment, my physician completed a blood test that concluded that a hormone imbalance was causing my acne. I started on therapy to control the amount of estrogen my body produced. The therapy along with a good diet and exercise regimen helped to clear up my acne. I am sharing my story, because acne is not just a condition that affects teenagers. It can affect adults at any age, and it can cause a great deal of embarrassment. Don't let your acne go untreated. Read my blog instead and learn about both natural and medical treatments that can help you.

5 Things to Know About Cooking with Cannabis

Health & Medical Blog

If you want to enjoy cannabis, you don't have to just smoke it. You can also incorporate cannabis into the food that you cook. When it comes to cooking with cannabis, there are a few things you should know before you start creating cannabis-infused food.

#1: Choose Your Strain Carefully

First, you need to think carefully about what strain you want to use when you cook. The strain you use will impact how the food will make you feel. You don't want to cook with a mixture of leftover marijuana. Instead, you should think about the type of strains you usually enjoy, as most people have a preference for either Indica or Sativa strains. Then, you should choose a specific strain that you have tried and enjoy before so you'll know what effect to expect from the food.

#2: Pay Attention to the THC Level

When you chose a strain, you need to pay attention to the THC level of the strain. If it has a high THC level, the impact will be stronger and more potent than if you choose a strain with a lower THC level. You may also want to use less marijuana in your cooking if it has a higher THC level.

#3: Prepare the Cannabis

Third, you need to prepare the cannabis, as you shouldn't just sprinkle raw flowers into your food. To release the THC and other cannabinoids into the food, you need to prepare the marijuana. The most common way to prepare cannabis is by making cannabis butter with the strain you choose. Or you can infuse some oil with marijuana or purchase cannabis oil to cook with. Or you can take the flowers and grind them up and add them to the food you are preparing.

#4: Use Small Amounts

Don't overdo it when you cook with marijuana. You'll only need small amounts of cannabis when you cook, especially when starting. Learn how the weed impacts the flavor of the food you are preparing, and how strong the food is. If you are cooking regular food, such as using marijuana butter on steak, use a small amount so you can fully eat and enjoy the food, while also not being overwhelmed by the impact of the cannabis on your body.

#5: Wait for the Impact

Keep in mind when you are eating cannabis, it'll impact you differently than when you smoke it. Your body will digest it, so it will take a while for you to feel the effects. Once you start to feel the effects, you'll feel them for an extended period.

When cooking with cannabis, choose the strand and THC level carefully. Prepare the cannabis and use small amounts when cooking. Be aware that it will take a while for you to feel the impact, so don't overeat. For more information, contact a local cannabis dispensary.
