IS THERE A LINK BETWEEN SMOKING CANNABIS AND PARANOIA?

By admin | May 18, 2018

A lot of people would have felt paranoid at some point in their lives. In the event that that cannabis is in charge of inducing a paranoid mental state, it would be awful news for our darling herb. Research focuses on a more complex connection between paranoid and marijuana.

THE LINK BETWEEN MARIJUANA AND PARANOIA


Recognizing what paranoid is and what we feel when paranoid can help when attempting to battle paranoid. Assuming, be that as it may, smoking weed makes us paranoid, it could be terrible news for cannabis users all over the world.

In spite of the clear connection between paranoid and cannabis, users have been smoking pot for many years to help mitigate negative mental states. Anxiety, frequently connected to paranoia, is a feeling numerous users battle with cannabis. Assuming that all weed encourages contemplations of paranoid is a direct contrast to smokers utilizing cannabis to help their psychological wellness. Rather, it shows up THC might be the offender by enhancing feelings of paranoid in explicit cases.

WHAT DOES RESEARCH SUGGEST?


A joint study between the University of Oxford, the Institute of Psychiatry at King's College London and the University of Manchester looked to comprehend if THC contributed to feelings of paranoia. Concentrating explicitly on what constituted as "feelings of paranoid", 121 volunteers were given either a 1.5mg dose of THC or a saline placebo. The 1.5mg dose of THC would mimic the act of smoking a solid joint, however, but disengaged from the other cannabinoids that shape the impact.

A broad assessment of every candidate was undertaken to test for paranoia. None of the volunteers knew whether they had been administered with THC or the placebo, however, the outcomes proved sensibly convincing. Utilizing virtual reality scenarios, real-life social situations, questionnaires and interview assessments, they discovered a portion of those given THC experienced paranoia, compared to 30% of candidates in the placebo group.

Every one of the candidates had smoked cannabis in any event once in their life yet did not report any past psychological wellness issues. The examination additionally discovered that paranoia thoughts died down as the feeling of being high wore off. Be that as it may, as opposed to THC causing paranoia, analysts concluded we are bound to encounter times of paranoia when we are stressed, restless or have reason to doubt someone.

COMBATING PARANOIA WHEN SMOKING WEED


THC can convey these feelings to the cutting edge of our mind, basically down to the manner in which THC connects with cannabinoid receptors in the passionate territories of our mind. In the event that, as a cannabis user, you do encounter jumpy paranoia and feelings when smoking, asking ourselves what may have prompted those thoughts can help battle the symptoms happening.

In any case, paranoia is probably going to influence all of us at some points in our lives. Regardless of whether that is the aftereffect of smoking cannabis or not, the feeling isn't pleasant nor solid for us to encounter more than once. A few pragmatic steps can be taken to help ease or reduce that paranoia feeling.

Perhaps no other topic bugs this side of the Beauty Brains more than the subject of psychics and psychic readings. That’s why I was outraged when I saw the Heritage Store selling products that were supposedly recommended by Edgar Cayce.

Estee Lauder Tom Pecheux Range: Pure Color Night

By admin | May 18, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

 


Tom Pecheux, Creative Make Up Director for Estee Lauder has come up with a 3 piece make up range that celebrates iconic French beauty. Originally destined only for Paris stores, it is now launching in London and New York. UK residents will find it at Selfridges from 20th May but it is in such short supply that it will probably only be available for about a week.

So, Pure Color night arrived at my door about an hour ago…my inital thoughts on the visual I was sent was ‘disappointing’. It’s not a great picture of the products really because you don’t see just how sleek the packaging really is. In reality, the products are far more impressive. They’re set in heavy packaging with a metallic twist in the colouring; gold and a deep blue. The highlighter - Pure Color Luminous Powder, £28 - is feather light and a gorgeously creamy texture - and paler than it looks in the pic. My favourite piece is Pure Color Ombre Effect EyeShadow in Naughty Black, a trio of chocolate shades, £15.50 - a mini trio of textures and shades in black/brown for a truly sexy smoky eye. Lastly, Pure Color Lip Gelée in Kiss Me, £16, is a light gloss in a nude rose tint - suit all - with a heck of a sheen on it. The gloss is probably the least impressive…it’s a very safe colour for a departure range and it probably would have been more interesting and creative to use something brighter and more visually stunning. In fact, it’s a little bit uncreative considering the Creative Director came up with it! If you can only choose one item from the range it has to be Naughty Black - I can see it becoming an absolute staple for deep brown smoky eyes or variations on eye lining….it’s just lovely.

Pecheux says, “I wanted to create the ultimate in French sensuality and sexiness — black eyeshadow for a naughty, smokey eye; highlighter for a healthy glow and lips that men will not be afraid to kiss.” Blimey.

Avene Dermatological Hydrotherapy Centre, France

By admin | May 18, 2010

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger





Well, in the nick of time before the ash cloud descended again, I got back from France on Sunday evening. I spent three days on a press trip with five other journos visiting the Avene Hydrotherapy Centre. The first night was spent in the coldest room I’ve ever slept (or not slept) in at a beautiful hotel with a pond seemingly beseiged by a million croaking frogs. Interesting dawn chorus - that actually didn’t wait til even dawn to start singing - but stunning nonetheless; a lake with mist rising in the backdrop and an exquisite pool. It was far too chilly to swim though with unseasonally cold weather in the region. In the morning we headed off on the 2 hour drive to Avene. It didn’t help that in my head I’d been calling it a ’spa’ and imagining all the pampering connotations that come with that word, but still, it was a little bit of a surprise (ok, ok, a shock) to discover that Avene is very much more medical than indulgent. The buildings (it has a hotel on site - very basic but actually rather lovely and welcoming) look like a more compact version of Tracy Island, but the original communal baths from 1874 are still visible adding a bit of historical interest.

Avene is situated by a thermal spring and its very first centre was built in 1743 where people came to ‘take the waters’. In the 19th Century, the water was exported to Chicago to treat victims of the Great Fire in 1871. And, while I’m always a little bit skeptical about ‘cures’ and special water, I have to say that the Avene water is completely amazing. Amazing in that it is the softest water I’ve ever come across and also totally addictive…I drank more water over those three days than I would in possibly a fortnight…you end up kind of craving it. Without going into a technical breakdown of what minerals and trace elements are in it, the water has been found to help hugely in the treatment of skin diseases such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis which is why people with skin conditions flock there to experience the waters. From the case studies we were shown, it appears to have an astonishing curative impact. But, if like me, you’re imagining swimming in beautiful, crystal thermal waters or steeping in hot, bubbling jacuzzis, nothing could be further from the truth!

I’d made a joke about ladies in white coats with jet sprays hosing me down in a cubicle before I left, and that turned out to be a premonition that almost came true as you’ll see from the pictures! If you suffer from a skin disease you’ll be seen by a doctor (dermatologist) and prescribed the ideal water treatments for your condition. In France, patients are referred by the health system and they also pick up the tab for treatments (but not accommodation) and by some strange EU quirk, you can get referred by the UK NHS starting on a complex route that begins with a form E112. I tried the ‘bath’ - it is temperature regulated for sensitive skins so wasn’t really warm enough for me but it has a massage mechanism that made it rather lovely and this was followed by a cold shower (sorry folks, but I piked out of this one..just couldn’t deal with a freezing shower). With all kinds of water therapies available, from scalp chambers that look like they were invented by Caractacus Potts, to perforated mouth guards that spray water over and under the tongue, the entire set up is dedicated to relieving sore and sensitive skin conditions wherever they occur.

It is fascinating…people absolutely flock; a fountain outside the building supplies local residents or passers by with as much free Avene thermal spring water as they like and apparantly in summer, queues form to stock up on the liquid. It is much more accepted in France to use hydrotherapy as a cure for ailments - even other than skin - to us Brits it seems strange. But what isn’t is doubt is the immense freedom from horrible, uncomfortably painful and disfiguring skin ailments that Avene gives. While you’d never go there for a mini-break (the French health system is somewhat typically beaurocratic - patients have to go for exactly three weeks in order for it to be paid for, not a day more or a day less), anyone suffering from skin complaints would find it literally transforming.

There is a whole Avene skincare range based entirely on the Avene water; it’s a confusing range in some ways because in some products there is perfume - a no-no for sensitive skins, and in others literally only five or six ingredients and a great helping of that is Avene water. I’m going to be trialling their range for extremely sensitive skin on a friend who suffers from eczema so will report back.

We left to spend our last night in Montpellier in a gorgeously luxurious hotel with pool, sun deck etc etc. Despite such sumptuous surroundings I kinda missed Avene and its relaxed atmosphere, and I definitely miss the water.

Nuno Da Costa Beauty Illustrations

I came across Nuno Da Costa’s exquisite beauty illustrations at a Clinique launch a couple of weeks ago - he has just sent me through a few more, inspired by Pat McGrath’s make up looks for the Galliano show. I love everything about these, not least because in Nuno’s illustrations, fashion and beauty merge seamlessly.

Beauty illustrations aren’t really something I’ve ever sat up and taken notice of before..now I’ve seen these, I recognise that it’s an art form in its own right.
