(HuffPost) Researchers at Washington State University have found evidence indicating that females may build up a tolerance to marijuana more easily than males do. While it’s not entirely predictive, people with an increased tolerance of a drug are more likely to become addicted to it — which means women may want to think twice before matching a man joint for joint.
The study focused on the pain-relieving effects of THC on male and female rats. In this case, rats made for good subjects, because, like humans, rats have a menstrual cycle (albeit one that lasts four to five days instead of 28), and they experience similar ovarian hormone fluctuations, which affect pain.
At the beginning of the trial, the female rats displayed a higher sensitivity to THC than the males. However, after 10 days of testing, researchers found that the female rats were needing higher doses of THC than the males just to experience the same degree of pain relief. In other words, while female rats started out being more sensitive to THC, after 10 days, they ended up less sensitive.
For my fellow ladies
having a tolerance to pot is not a good thing. trust me, i’d do anything to get stoned off a bowl again instead of 4.
This just explains so much
my sarcasm is at it’s best when I hear a stupid question
Dude Jordan some girl tried to tell my ethics class that “generosity isn’t important anymore. I mean I don’t give people things or get anything and I’m pretty happy” I seriously raised my hand and was like “GENEROSITY ISNT JUST GIVING PEOPLE THINGS ITS SHARING ADVISE AND COMPLIMENTING PEOPLE AND NOT BEING A RUDE UP BITCH TO EVERYONE AND EVERY IDEA” *turned around and death glared that whore*
I’ve never been more emotional about any social media post in my entire life
UPDATE: guys Beth Broderick tweeted yesterday that this Salem is THE SAME SALEM!!! He’s 20 years old man!!!! 20!
That Salem is still kicking is all I care about.
i think the coolest thing would be to see a new color
right so theres this thing called the bullet shrimp and not only are these things totally badass and stylish
they have 16 colour cones in their vision
us humans only have 3
these things can literally see over 5 times as many colours as we can
literally they can look at what we would see as a completely black space and see thousands of colours we don’t even know exist
do you understand how fuCKING COOL THAT IS
You also can’t have them in your tank because they can just fucking break through the glass. These little rainbows are so cool
