I just witness another conscious elder Ital Rastaman dead from cancer and heart disease in his early 60s, who smoked 1 bag of ganja.

Who gives a fuck about any debate.

All I am saying is black people we are dieing too YOUNG in Babylon western hemisphere and the main causes are cancer and cardiovascular disease.

The take home point isn't to debate ganja.
The take home point is to promote HEALTHY LIVING and anything consumed in MODERATION.

It better 1s don't respond to this post.

RIP Ras Dunji
I will miss thee forIever

Did u read the last post?

Black people are dieing at young ages and something needs to stop.

Including the corpse you post

Have some common courtesy on such a sensitive topic as the loss of I friend and don't be a ginal. Trolls only live under European bridges

Healthy living
Healthy minds
Moderation over addiction
Black life over black death

2 Rastafari doctors now who advocate against the burning of herbs and certainly the regular heavy consumption of such

"Marley and Ganja. Two too highly sensitive topics"

Of course it is. You talking about two Holiness things.

Bob Marley is a prophet
Ganja is a holy herb that is giving from The Most High

It's so sensitive that it will make the soul defend those topics automatically

Marley live in the spirit
Ganja live in us. We all have Cannabinoid Receptors in us.

The Ganja and Marley is a journey that the I must study. It might don't applied to all the brethrens or sistrens, but the specific ones will see the signs

I guessed it all matter about the spirituality you are living in.

In the I and I the Ganja don't hurt the I

Spiritually it may not hurt but we are talking the health hazards of heavy consumption

Dabbing Cannabis Extracts May Expose You To Cancer-Causing Toxins

Dabbing Cannabis Extracts May Expose You To Cancer-Causing Toxins


A recent study lead by Dr. Robert Strongin, a professor of organic chemistry at Portland State University in Oregon, has shown evidence of cancer-causing agents being released while dabbing concentrates extracted with butane.

While many patients prefer dabs for the convenience and potency, in a market where the goal is to be healthy, adding carcinogens and irritants isn’t part of the plan. Although we’d like to put on the blame on residual solvents in the product, this data shows the culprit may have a more natural source.

Terpenes and terpene extraction have been around for a number of years in the perfume and essential oils markets; however, little information has been garnered on these compounds in the realm of vaporization and inhalation. The test results from this study show, with application of extreme heat, certain terpenes can degrade into benzene, a carcinogen, and methacrolein (MC), a noxious irritant. However, upon reading the reports, the fear may be a little overhyped; and like a chapter out of ancient Reefer Madness, the data may be a bit skewed.


“Dabbing”, a term for smoking or vaporizing hash oils like shatter, wax, rosin, live resin, and others, has gained popularity over the last several years, especially in the legal markets. Dabbing involves applying high-temperatures to cannabis extracts, with the use of a torch and nail, or dab rig, which vaporizes the material without combustion. The process of heating a quartz, titanium, or glass device to a specific temperature with a torch can be difficult without advanced equipment.

In this study performed in Oregon researchers simulated dabbing in a laboratory environment, monitoring cannabis-derived terpenes myrcene, limonene, linalool, and Fire OG. Using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, the vapor was collected and analyzed for its chemical composition. Results revealed common terpenes in cannabis degrade high levels of carcinogens and irritants at higher temperatures. The chart below shows the number of chemicals released at the highest temperature range reported: 500 degrees.

 MC (ng/mg terpene)Benzene (ng/mg terpene)“Fire OG”12710Limonene26163Linalool103NDMyrcene8160

 

However, continuing to read the report, researchers reported at below 500 degrees, no benzene was present in their tests, and the levels of methacrolein decreased rapidly at lower temperatures, and was undetectable at 322 degrees. Considering most concentrate users are not dabbing at above 500 degrees, this information is good to know, but in most cases, not life-threatening.

Solutions Abound

If the thought of inhaling noxious chemicals from your concentrates if frightening there are ways to make your experience safer.

Solventless Extracts

Butane, propane, ethanol, and CO2 are among some of the chemical used to extract marijuana concentrates. Depending on the manufacturer, there is always a chance of residual chemicals in your extracts. Many solventless options are on the market including rosin, which is extracted using a heated press instead of chemicals, and budder which is whipped hash oil.

Temperature Control

Most of the advanced vaporizers on the market today include some type of temperature control. Some even allow you to pair your device with your smartphone so you can control the temperature and adjust your device according to your preferences.

Discerning cannabis consumers should be concerned about the products they use and the chemicals they introduce into their regimen. While the research is valid, we have something to learn… keep your temperatures low and your dab rig cool to avoid turning terpenes toxic.

the Tonga people of Zimbabwe grow and smoke ganja as part of their culture and they live long
