Smoking Cannabis And Staying Healthy: How Is It Possible?

Cannabis smokers tend to be healthier than tobacco smokers and that is a fact! They do not even get cancer from all the smoke they inhale in the lungs. But how is that possible? According to the researches made by medical billing companies, linked THC to the absence of cancer in the body, as it is a powerful weapon in fight against cancer.

Although no official study showed up on TV, a lot of medical companies did confirm this fact. Still, they also include CBD in the arsenal of weapons that fight cancer. But how weed smokers are healthier than tobacco smokers?

Use of vaporizers

These devices are the latest inventions that took cannabis industry onto whole new level. As it was recently legalized, the producers managed to find a much safer way to smoke cannabis. Instead of a traditional burning (joints and blunts), vaporizers heat up the cannabis bud up to a certain temperature where the burning does not happen.

At a certain temperature, cannabis resin and terpenes starts to evaporating due to the heating process. Through the vaporizer, a consumer inhales a vapor instead of a smoke. Smoke has dangerous substances and deadly elements that can inflict serious damages to lungs after some time. So, instead of inhaling smoke, you inhale a vapor that is full of THC, CBD and other elements of cannabis, which make you high/relaxed.

Smoking through water pipes and bongs

Water pipes and bongs are old methods of smoking and these date back to the ancient times. As it is innovative, unusual and healthy, a good part of cannabis users love to use water pipes as these are fantastic ways to get rid of unwanted and harmful elements. The concept is that a smoke goes through a cold water with ice, where the water filters the smoke and “washes” toxic substances, leaving you only with the cold vapor/smoke.

All the weed particles that you do not need will stay in water and your lungs will be healthier. While it seems perfect, this method is far from perfect, as still some of the harmful substances stay in the smoke you inhale. Still, when compared to traditional cigarette smoking, this is a much healthier choice. Today, you can find many different versions of pipes and bongs, in different sizes and shapes, so everyone will be able to find his/her favorite design and look.

Concentrates and dabs

Concentrates and dabs are the purest forms of cannabis that you can get anywhere and these are not expensive for no reason. There are different types of concentrates, based on the type of solvent that you use for the production of the concentrate.

The most popular is BHO (butane hash oil) where you use butane as a solvent that will separate all terpenes from the buds and flowers.

Dabbers usually use modified water pipes to smoke these concentrates, though can be added to joints. These can even be used in special types of vaporizers, so the wide range of users could experience the dabbing and stay healthy.

Swimming is maybe the best physical activity that you can have as it includes all your muscles in the activity and makes you lose your pounds. That is why the swimmers are so good looking and handsome! If you want to be like them, you can swim by yourself of course, or you can enroll in the course organized by State Swim. In any case, it would be good to start with preparation before you start with it. There are a couple of things you can do before you start with it.

Prepare your muscles

Of course, your muscles will get used to the activity after some time, but you could expect serious inflammation of your muscles in case you do not do some initial preparation. The good way to start is to visit a gym, 2-3 times per week, just to “wake up” your muscles.

Prepare your muscles

Pull-ups, pushups, squats and deadlifting are the best exercises that will prepare you before you jump into the water. These exercises engage large muscle groups that would suffer the inflammation if you swim for a longer time. Alternatively, you can consult with a personal trainer and explain to him that you are planning to go to the pool, so he could advise you what exercises to perform.

Take some swim lessons

Taking swim lessons is nothing new, as many people decide to go with professional help, especially if they had not been to a pool before. If you have never been to pol before, it is recommended to visit a professional trainer who would work with you.

These lessons are highly useful, as you will learn a lot about the strokes, techniques, breathing and other useful things that you might need.

Of course, you can skip these, however, it is much better to start your session with some pre-knowledge. The session would be much more effective then. Still, it is totally up to you whether you will do this or not.

See a doctor if you have any medical condition

In case you have a medical condition, you might want to check the whole matter with the doctor. Generally, swimming is the only activity that is appropriate for everyone, unless you have broken bone or some physical problem that prevents you from swimming.

But, it is always a good idea to visit a doctor whenever you are starting some new exercise. If you are having a skin related problem, the chlorinated water may cause problems for your skin. But even you do have a skin condition, you can ask your doctor for advice. Do not let that stop you from going to swim!

Make sure you follow the pool rules

Always get familiar with the pool rules, as you do not want a lifeguard to shout at you because you have not read the rules. There are different lanes that you must be aware of, you should avoid jumping in the pool as you create the waves. There are many rules and devote some time to getting familiar with these, so you could follow all these and respect others.

Why Do We Need Spiral Wound Gaskets?

Why Do We Need Spiral Wound Gaskets?
Featured image of Why Do We Need Spiral Wound Gaskets?

Spiral wound gaskets are basically (semi) metallic rings that are placed between two surfaces that are of different materials with the goal of preventing the leakage. It consists of two parts: a metal wound and the filler material, where the metal part acts as the strong structural support and the filler material is actually the sealing part.

Stainless steel, or carbon-rich metals are used for creating these, while the filler material is usually graphite. One of the best companies, www.specialistsealingproducts.co.uk, is specialized in creating and selling these for various purposes and we asked them a couple of questions regarding these.

How are spiral wound gaskets made?

The process of creating starts with the winding the tracks of metal and filler material over a smaller ring that is made of steel. The metal material is always used for the structure while the material for sealing is picked upon the role of the whole element/gasket.

The process of selection of the sealing material depends on temperature, amount of fluid, chemical reactions between materials. These variables influence the overall selection so the gasket could be used in a certain industry or for certain actions.

The alternating spirals of metal and the filler material are made into the ring made of steel, which has a certain thickness that depends on the purpose of the element.

The outer ring is usually made of stainless steel, type 304 or 321 while the filler material is made of graphite or asbestos. The outer ring, however, is made of carbon steel to ensure robustness and firm structure.

Where do we use spiral wound gaskets?

We use these wherever we have an operating under the high/low temperature and high/low pressure. They are placed in face flanges, as well as in tongue and grow flanges. Wherever we have the two separate parts that are working in extreme environment (high/low temperature/pressure), these are applied as the security for leakage prevention.

Petrochemical industry, as well as any kind of plants, uses this element to prevent any leakage of toxic fluids or elements that could affect the people’s health and inflict serious damage. Oil refinery uses the gaskets to secure two pipes for example and prevent the possible oil leakage.

Also, the high-pressure conditions and environment could have a lot of benefit from using these as they can withstand a really high level of pressure without cracking or releasing.

Can we re-use spiral wound gaskets?

Technically we can re-use them after they had served a purpose for a while, but it is not really recommended thing to do. Over time, high temperature, high pressure and huge amounts of liquids may ruin the overall structure of this element and it is very likely that it will not withstand the same conditions later.

Therefore, the professionals must examine the piping system, take into consideration the operating conditions and fluids in order to determine whether the replacement is needed.

Still, have in mind that these can work for a long time, but once you disassemble them, you must replace these with the new ones.

Fencing Law

When building a fence for your property, it is more than just to specify what you want and buy the material. Even when building the temporary fencing solution, you need to obtain a permit in order to build it in accordance with law.

All homeowners must apply for the permit, which will be accepted or rejected by the local municipality and jurisdiction. So, how do you know what you need in order to obtain it? How to start? Start by reading our article, where we will explain some basic things!

Each state applies a different law

It may happen that you do not even need the permit for building the fence, as this solely depends on the state and country you live in. While you may need a permit to build in in Oregon, it may happen that you do not need it all in NY. Different jurisdictions apply the different law and it also may happen that you need it only if you fence exceeds a certain height. If it does, you will be required to fill a 4-pages paper form in order to get the permission.

So, if you have a fence that is over 6 feet tall, you will definitely want to ask for permission prior to building it. Depending on the municipality, somewhere you might be required to apply the setback boundaries. Still, when you compare and try to make a general rule, you are required to ask for a permit in cities, while in the suburban areas you can build it without, regardless of the height.

Obtaining the permit

This can be a really exhausting process, as some states will ask you to show the draft, blueprints, photos or even a written permit from your neighbor. At some places, your neighbor might be the part of a financial plan, as he is ought to participate in financing the fence.

Obtaining the permit

If you are building it on your own, you will need a written agreement from your neighbor that you are financing the whole project on your own, so that he has a proof that is legally (not) obliged to participate in the project. This is generally a huge burden to cities, but they see it as a cheaper solution as it is not the municipal’s responsibility.

The best thing to do? Ask a company to get the permission

If you hire a professional fencing company and service, the best thing you can do is to leave them the paperwork. They are familiar with the law and regulations, so they know this better than you. In case you need a permit, they will obtain it for you and if not, they will tell you do not need one.

This saves a lot of time, but keep in mind that you pay the fee, and you also pay them for obtaining it for you. Also, have in mind that some companies do not do this, so ask them before you make any deal with them.
