Unfortunately, science isn't quite as convinced about the positive effects of cannabis on our ability to catch some Z's. Research since the 1970s has shown mixed results on weed's sleep-aiding benefits. A 2018 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study -- the gold standard -- found no benefit from CBD on sleep in healthy volunteers. Other studies have also found high rates of insomnia when withdrawing from nightly use. … [Read more...] about Weed may not ease sleep problems, especially for regular users, studies say

The report found 36 studies that showed the top three triggers for a heart attack included the use of cocaine, eating a heavy meal and smoking marijuana. Smoking weed can cause an increase in a user's heart rate and blood pressure and, while marijuana can be consumed through edibles, 77.5% of people surveyed said they smoked it. … [Read more...] about Patients at risk for heart problems should be cautious about using marijuana
Before this weekend, Wuhan authorities had maintained for two weeks that no new cases had been detected since January 3. Even as cases were confirmed overseas, there was a complete lack of information on potential infections elsewhere in China, leading to a growing sense of unease and accusations of a coverup by local or national authorities. … [Read more...] about China is trying to stop the spread of a deadly new virus at the worst possible time of year
Now, the Chiefs’ lack of investigation might have also had something to do with Hunt’s league-leading 1,327 yards rushing last year. (Hunt’s interview yesterday seemed to be an attempt to smooth the path for a return with another team, maybe even the Chiefs, after his inevitable impending suspension is over.) But the NFL is the organization that is supposedly responsible for figuring out these cases, the ones trying to head off the scandals at the pass. But they botched this investigation in the exact same way they did the Rice one. As ESPN’s Ian O’Connor pointed out, four years ago, Robert Mueller (the man who was in charge of looking into what the NFL got wrong in the Rice investigation and is now in charge of … a different investigation) “identified a number of investigative steps that the League did not take to acquire additional information about what occurred inside the elevator.” This is almost word-for-word what went down with … [Read more...] about The NFL’s Real Problem Isn’t Kareem Hunt. It’s Roger Goodell.
Trump’s vilification of Justin Trudeau is so over the top you have to wonder what else is fueling it beyond the ostensible trigger for presidential rage, a perfectly reasonable and mild press appearance standing up politely for his own nation’s interests. What worries me is that Trump has belatedly figured out that if you want to stage a wag-the-dog stunt to upstage your scandals, signing a phony peace treaty with North Korea won’t remotely do; successful wag-the-dog scenarios always involve ginning up a war. It would not be the strangest thing to happen during the Trump presidency if the fictional American-Canadian war in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut becomes Trump’s next move in his increasingly panicked effort to evade the special counsel. But a more serious and far more worrisome prospect is that Kim might take some action that humiliates the American president in the aftermath of his Mission Accomplished victory lap; no one can doubt that Trump … [Read more...] about Trump’s Summit Spectacle Was Just a Momentary Distraction From His Bigger Problems
