Cannabis reduces blood pressure in older adults

A new discovery by researchers shows that medical cannabis may reduce blood pressure in older adults. The study is the first of its kind to focus on the effect of cannabis on blood pressure, heart rate and metabolic parameters in adults 60 and above with hypertension. In the study, researchers found a significant reduction in 24-hour systolic and diastolic blood pressure values, with the lowest point occurring three hours after ingesting cannabis either orally via oil extracts or by smoking. Patients showed reductions in blood pressure in both daytime and nighttime, with more significant changes at night. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2021-02/aabu-crb020521.php ............................................................................................ #science #medicine #marijuana #freedom #education

A strange, super-powerful particle that's not truly a particle could have dominated the universe when it was just a second-old, releasing a flood of ripples that permeated all of space-time. Called oscillons, they would have been so energetic their "ripples" could have unleashed so-called gravitational waves, those vibrations in the fabric of space-time that are generated when monster black holes slam into each other. Future experiments to detect these early-universe gravitational waves could give us insights into the most extreme conditions that the universe has ever encountered. If this oscillon picture is correct, this is one potential mechanism for inflation to generate gravitational waves. If we then see those waves, we will get a view directly into the universe when it was under a second old. https://www.livescience.com/oscillon-particle-early-univrse.html ........................................................................... #space #science #nature #education #news
