Men Reported to Experience More Pain Relief From Cannabis Than Women

Quite a straightforward study, recent scientific evidence has come out from Columbia University Medical Center, strongly suggesting that men have a higher rate of analgesia from smoking cannabis than women do–that is to say, men apparently receive more pain relief from the substance than women. 

This double-blind, placebo controlled experiment had the volunteer recreational smokers smoke cannabis, or a non-psychoactive hemp variety (although the study did not specifically say what this strain was, since this study requires an online purchase of its entire results). From here, they studied and analyzed the subject’s pain relief and pain tolerance threshold. Reportedly, men reported a much higher boost in both pain relief and tolerance, where women felt notably less pain relief, but saw a boost in their pain tolerance as well. 

The study also noted that the “highness” effects clearly do not seem to be different if a man or a woman smokes cannabis, but that there are subtle neurochemical differences between the sexes that cannabinoids play a role in. So essentially, there is no difference in intoxication or neurochemical enjoyment, but the benefits can be slightly, slightly different–it appears.

Far from being “satanist,” the esoteric (i.e. occultism or comparative religion) marks the beginning of mathematics, astronomy, psychology, medicine, and even politics. Esoteric science represents a cache of little-known knowledge detailing how to decipher the human's unconscious mind--and the unconscious mind is essentially everything that the human mind is not considering at any given moment.
