Mixing marijuana with tobacco

Marijuana lovers are divided into those who prefer joints and those who prefer spliffs. Although both forms look the same, what differs is what is inside. IN EurHowever, it is customary to use these names interchangeably, which is not correct because it may mislead people who use marijuana. Find out what a spliff is, how it affects the body and why mixing marijuana with tobacco is not the healthiest solution.

What is spliff? Marijuana with tobacco?

Spliff is a combination of tobacco and marijuana. Both substances are mixed and wrapped in rolling papers (rolls) as when making joints. That's why a spliff is confused with a joint - it only contains crushed cannabis buds. Why nicotine with THC is it such a popular combination?

So mixing both substances seems to be a form of economy.

Mixing marijuana with tobacco is a common, but not the healthiest, way to consume it.

The nicotine contained in tobacco has a relaxing and calming effect, similar to marijuana. So it would seem that marijuana-tobacco experience should be a heightened version of the relaxing high. However, it should be remembered that the space in the tablet that could be filled by marijuana is now occupied by tobacco, which does not contain any CBD or THC.

You will find many contradictory publications on whether spliff provides greater or lesser sensations. Some claim that the effect of getting high with a spliff is less spectacular, while researchers from University College London prove that the level of high is unchanged. Meanwhile, in 2009, research was carried out which showed that nicotine with THC makes the psychoactive compound better absorbed, and tobacco increases its evaporation efficiency by up to 45%. As you can see, there is no unambiguous position on this issue. What can be said for sure is that a spliff tastes very different from a joint as it is dominated by the pungent tobacco flavor.

Negative aspects of smoking a spliff

You should ask yourself why do you want to smoke marijuana? If for the psychoactive effects alone, nothing prevents you from mixing it with tobacco. However, if you care mainly about the health aspects of marijuana, then choose a classic joint.
