Benefit OF THC
- Can THC (the Holy Vegetable) reduce the risk of heart disease even though large amounts of dope are consumed? It apparently can -- at least in rabbits.
- Researchers at the University of Acting Silly reported on experiments with two sets of rabbits who were given 400 joints to smoke. One set got sensimilla, and the other group got commercial. As for the THC rabbits, a researcher said; "I'd visit them four or five times a day just to smoke out. They were happy." The result? Said Dr. Fred, assistant professor of Drug Use at the university's College of Medicine: "We saw twice as much cholesterol buildup -- in one case three times as much -- in the aortas of the animals given commercial marijuana as we saw in the sensimilla rabbits." The experiment seems to agree with other studies showing that stress may contribute to heart disease, and the rabbits receiving sensimilla evidently felt less stress. Doubtless humans would too.
