    Drink More Water When You Smoke Cannabis

    85% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated. In 47% of Americans (especially the elderly) the thirst mechanism is so weak it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD hydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 40%. One glass of water shuts down hunger pangs for almost 100% of dieters. Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

    Lack of water is the #1 cause of constipation. Lack of water is the # 1 cause false signs of dementia or memory loss. Dehydration mimics heart attack symptoms. Water clears the complexion and removes impurities from the body. Water aids in & improves digestion. 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for 80% of sufferers & lubricates joints

    A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short term memory, confusion, trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing on computer screen or printed page. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily, decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45% plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

    If You Wait Until You're Thirsty, to drink, You're Already Dehydrated. Water regulates your body's temperature. Elderly people often feel chilled in the heat because they do not drink enough water. You cant depend on thirst as a signal to drink. Having a dry mouth is a later sign of dehydration. Only as dehydration progresses do you notice that you're thirsty. In addition, the thirst sensation also diminishes with age so you may not know you are thirsty.

    Becoming dehydrated can be serious enough to cause a stroke!

    "Most of us do not drink enough water, and as a result, our blood becomes more viscous, increasing the likelihood that a clot will suddenly form at the site of a plaque formation."
    - American Medical Association

    How do you know you are dehydrated? Symptoms include :

    Dizziness
    Headache
    Dark urine (may have a strong odor)
    Inability to urinate
    Dry mouth and nose
    Weakness
    Chills
    Fatigue
    Nausea and vomiting
    Dry mouth and tongue

    Dehydration Symptoms in the Elderly:

    Dehydration symptoms in the elderly can be different than in young adults. Medications that the elderly take are much more likely to lead to dehydration in that population. One particular symptom of dehydration more pronounced in the elderly is poor skin elasticity. When the skin is pinched, it holds its form rather than returning to its normal shape.

    How much water have you had today?

    Thank You 420, I didn't know drinking 8 glasses of water a day was so
    critical. I drink at most 5 glasses a day excluding a cup of tea. But your
    right, sometimes I feel fatiqed, especially when its hot outside. My buddy
    Pinch always greets me with a bottle of water, & I think he has a case in
    the car. Good Point:smokin3:

    In responding to SexyVexy, the water you use to make Coffee or Tea
    I was told doesn't count in regard to how many glass's of Water you
    drink a day. So if you had 3 cups of Coffee & 3 cups of water, you
    only had 3 cups of Water.:smokin3:

    re: Drink More Water When You Smoke Cannabis

    I was just being funny. Most people would tell you I drink more coffee than I do water

    But even if it did not count as the same amount, it would have to contribute somewhat to your daily water intake. After all, it's just water run through grounds.... it's bean juice haha!
    However, definitely not a main source of water by any means.

    Well, SeXy VeXy has a point, however, once you pour Water over those
    Coffee beans, through a filter, a new substance is formed, Coffee, which
    has many alkaloids such as Caffeine that influence the body as a stimulant.
    My Chinese Doctor told me Coffee is good because it cleans the Kidney's.
    Back to the issue of Coffee, I believe, only Water has the capacity to cool
    off the system, like putting water in your cars radiator & regulating your
    body's system toward homeostasis. :smokin3::

    How much is a glass? The average glass at my house holds 16 oz.
    Does that count as one or two glasses? Not to sound silly, but it is easier to drink four 16 oz. glasses than eight. I guess I shouldn't be looking for the least amount to drink.

    The average glass of Water is 8oz, so if your drinking 16oz. glasses, your
    drinking 2 glasses. I think the Principal is to keep the body hydrated
    through out the day & drinking 8-16oz bottles of water will do the trick.

    carries a case of bottled water in his car & always greets me with a bottle.
    Also , if you have Allergy's like myself you tend to need more water than average.

    It also doesn't have all the empty calories of soda. I use to drink about 6 liters of mountain dew a day. Not to mention all the beer. (this was during college)
    I knew i was dehydrated because that was all i drank. I went to the doctor and he tried to take blood. After the 8 pin prick he told me to go home, drink a few gallons of water over the next few days, then come back.

    Now there is a substance that needs to be illegal. Mountain dew. Only things its good for is rotting teeth, making you fat, and giving you bad skin.

    Plus the withdrawal headaches are horrible. Aspirin doesn't even help. Of course I wasn't smoking then so I couldn't say how much of a relief cannabis is to the withdrawal symptoms.
