A Quick Introduction to British Pub Culture

A staple in British culture is the pub, which is short for public house, but nobody will ever call it that. They’re essentially a bar that serves as a local meeting place where people can socialise and relax over a drink. A visit to the local pub is mandatory if you want to really immerse yourself, not only in British pub culture but also in the culture of the local area too. Pubs usually serve a variety of branded and local beers, as well as spirits and wine, and many serve traditional British pub food too. You’ll probably not find cocktails and an enormous range of fancy drinks with fancy names – that is the realm of a bar, not the local pub. It’s estimated that there are over 45,000 pubs in England today.

Vaping: Why Bad Press Doesn’t Equate To Bad News

Among those concerned about vaping, 2019 might be remembered as the year that many people were alerted to the “true” dangers of vaping. The US-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported over 1,000 cases of Evali, a vaping-associated lung injury. 

Of the people affected, 34 have died, the CDC revealed. However, while the catastrophic effects of these deaths to the victims’ families shouldn’t be understated, the real question shouldn’t be whether vaping is dangerous but whether it remains safer than conventional tobacco smoking. 

So, what’s the bad press?

According to the CDC, 86% of the people who fell ill as a result of vaping had, during the three months prior, used THC products. The term THC is shorthand for tetrahydrocannabinol, a cannabis compound which is psychoactive – hence why it’s responsible for making cannabis users “high”.

Planning on Running a Marathon? CBD Could Be Your Next Ticket

As a generally healthy person and active athlete, using cannabis—medical or otherwise— has never really been on my radar. But approximately a year ago, my fitness trainer suggested I try some samples of CBD. I wasn’t exactly sure what CBD was, and I surely had no idea that it could benefit me in so many ways—let alone help me prepare to run a marathon.

I had heard about CBD but did not relate it at all to a healthy lifestyle and could not imagine that pot and fitness could go hand in hand. I mean, how could using weed contribute at all to athletic performance? I admit, I had numerous misgivings and nearly decided against it. I’m pretty glad I did not, however. Ultimately, educating myself about medical cannabis was what made all the difference.
