Science Says Smoking Weed Helps Heal Broken Bones — So That Means You Should Smoke A Ton Of It, Right?
If smoking weeds heals broken bones then wouldn’t smoking a ton of fucking weed make your bones stronger than all holy shit?
That makes sense, right?
If… Smoking Weed = Good For Bones.
Then… Smoking Tons-O-fucking Weed = God-Like Bone Strength.
Pretty sure that’s how things of this nature work.
Even if smoking weed won’t turn you into the super hero known as Bone Density Man, science still thinks that when it comes to your bones, hitting the bong is pretty goddamn rad.
According to Newser:
There’s a new and very promising use for marijuana, or at least a compound found in it. Researchers discovered that cannabidiol (CBD) worked wonders for rats with broken limbs. When rats with mid-femoral fractures were given CBD, the healing process was “markedly enhanced” within just eight weeks, according to the Israeli researchers, whose work is published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
And the treatment did more than just mend bones: The compound made bones stronger during healing (scientifically, CBD enhanced “the maturation of the collagenous matrix, which provides the basis for new mineralization of bone tissue”). That means the limb “will be harder to break in the future,” the researchers say in a press release.
Well, shit. There is hope to become Bone Density Man after all! Just go and break all of your bones then smoke a forest’s worth of weed.
