Before I took my first puff of the “Devil’s Lettuce” (I think this is the funniest term for weed) I myself believed in these misconceptions. But after indulging into it for quite sometime now, I’ve found that these misconceptions are truly misguided.
🍃 1. First things first, correlation does not equal causation. There is no conclusive evidence that the drug effects of weed are causally linked to the subsequent abuse of other illicit drugs.
🌴 2. Much how alcohol doesn’t automatically give everyone who takes a sip a big beer belly and cirrhosis, cannabis doesn’t instantly glue you to a beanbag chair and prevent you from going outside as soon as you touch a bud. Some people may be lazy by nature, but others are hardworking individuals who don’t let cannabis define their successes or failures.
🌿 3. There has never been a single confirmed death by cannabis overdose in the history of the world. True, cannabis has occasionally been a contributing factor in deaths, but those are instances of either lifestyle dangers (e.g., trafficking/dealing/cartel violence) or gross negligence leading to accidents. And those outliers are vastly usurped by alcohol-related deaths, prescription drug overdoses, or even accidents resulting from fatigue.
🌳 4. The general negativity surrounding the word “cannabis” or “marijuana” alone is frustrating enough. All of the above misconceptions bubble up as soon as someone who is opposed to cannabis hears the word uttered. Or maybe people just have a negative association with cannabis simply because they’ve been taught for so many years that cannabis is bad.
🌲 5. A misconception that’s inspired numerous states from coast to coast to make a change. Yes, cannabis is illegal federally, but not because it has negative connotations, it’s dangerous, it makes you lazy and stupid, or because it’s a gateway drug. In fact, cannabis was quite a cash crop before the 1800s. Unfortunately, hundreds of years of misguided drug labeling, xenophobia, and fear mongering has twisted a plant once celebrated for its therapeutic and textile benefits into a Big Bad Bogeyman.
Do you struggle with dyslexia?
Have you ever been bullied for being dyslexic or for having a learning disability or physical disability of some kind?
I want to open up this particular conversation of “emotional & mental bullying” of someone’s uniqueness after seeing some comments about other people being bullied because of #dyslexia it for have a #disability of some kind.
Let’s start the conversation in the comment section 📲👇🏻
I too have been the victim of bullying! Not only by my fellow peers, but I also experienced bullying by adults, teachers, and those in authority or in control of my grades & education. •
There are a TON of
#misconceptions when it comes to #learningdisabilities and #childrenwithdyslexia
One teacher told me that I was “...Not a learner & couldn’t learn anything.” These are extreme examples - but I am only able to relate through my own person experience with bullies.
Bullying in NEVER okay and we should not be afraid to talk about it. We must validate, encourage, support one another when it does happen.
I DID NOT fit the square peg that public school tried to shove me through. I am I star. And I refused to lessen myself in order to fit in. I am proud of who I am! •
Share your story with me!
We had a really fun and interesting conversation yesterday with Erin Chen, a sex and relationship therapist, and the founder of @lilasutra and @sparkfestasia, where she spoke to us about the importance of sexual wellness. Erin shared with us on how parents can approach the birds and the bees with their children and also dispelled some myths surrounding porn.
We can't wait to share with you her episodes with us on WomenTalk Soul. (Swipe to the end for what a vulva puppet looks like!)
#justice is a #confounding thing at times. As far as I would estimate, law abiding people are content to abide by the laws of justice, while non-law abiding people are discontent with abiding by the same laws. This is true spiritually as well. When you have #Jesus in your life and #accept His substitutionary #sacrifice in your place as what was required by the law for justice to exist, then justice is something #incredible and, to an outsiders eyes, #crazy or #unfathomable . Because why would the #CreatorGod of the universe stoop down from His heavenly #throne to live the life of a #humble carpenter, to be ridiculed and beaten and then die on a cross just to give His children, who became His enemies, an opportunity to have a choice of freely repenting and returning to Him? Justice reveals God’s character. And even though it can be difficult to swallow at times, it’s #crucial that we #study out what justice really is and what it really looks like and what it reveals about God (all through His own Word, the Bible. Not through any other persons interpretations alone. The #Protestant cry of #solascriptura is #vital ) because #misconceptions and #badtheology taint our understanding of justice, that’s another reason why we need the indwelling of the #HolySpirit to guide and direct us every step of the way through the Word so that we can see Christ lifted up in truth in every aspect of the things we #believe and are. Where justice from the world too often sees #corruption , justice from God is #pure and #incorruptible . But spiritual things are spiritually discerned, and those who don’t want Jesus won’t have the same take on justice as those who do want Him.
Targeting the Long Head of the Triceps seems to be something nearly everyone has WRONG! Ask someone what exercise is ‘best’ to target the long head and they’ll confidently reply with some sort of overhead variation. So what’s “wrong” with that suggestion? It’s really just a lack of understanding .... _
The triceps primary function is elbow extension, however the long head crosses the shoulder joint and assist with shoulder extension. So whenever you’re doing overhead variations, your shoulder is in a flexed position, and the long head of the triceps is lengthened.
So although these overhead variations put the tricep under an intense stretch, this stretched position INHIBITS the tricep from concentrically contracting. So when you’re performing repetitions in the overhead position, the medial and lateral head is basically doing ALL of the work and the long head is just under a loaded stretch!
I tested this utilizing the Electromyography (EMG) technology and the lab, and the muscle activation of the long head when performing overhead variations is significantly decreased. If you want to get a better understanding on WHY, look into the “force-length” relationship. When a muscle is stretched (lengthened) it’s ability to generate force is decreased.
If you want to get your long head fully shortened and feel a real deep contraction, utilize variations that have your shoulder in an extended position! Tricep kickbacks are actually a GREAT variation to blast the long head. As shown above, the cable tricep extension can also be performed in two deliberate motions (elbow ext + should ext)
I had to create a 60 sec snip for IG but check out the whole video for more info. If you like learning how to effectively train each muscle, check out @maxhypetraining
Who was surprised at the difference in Muscle Activation show?! Tag a friend trying to build bigger arms! 💪

BUYING vs. RENTING
Did you know that rent in Ada county jumped approximately 10% this last year?! Here are the common misconceptions versus the reality most people have when it comes to buying a home. If you are curious if you qualify a ten minute conversation with a lender is all you need! #lemprealestate#amherstmadison
Is it true that only people who are overweight will be diagnosed with diabetes? Pinky’s answer is NO! Although obesity is one of the risk factors, but it is patently untrue that Type 2 diabetes only affects overweight people. Around 20% of people with diabetes are normal weight, or underweight. So don’t assume you are safe when you are not overweight! .
How do we maintain a clear head, #focus , energy without the slump & run circles around our #kids ? It's no secret that for nearly 4 years we've been faithful to the #ThriveExperience !! There are a TON of #misconceptions about it. Let me briefly explain what it IS. First, it’s NOT a vitamin, but it DOES have vitamins in it. The combination of the capsules, Lifestyle Mix and the DFT (patch) (which these 3 components make up the "Thrive Experience") eliminates the challenges people face when losing weight getting rid of #inflammation , cravings, help reduce appetite, give you #energy and increase our #metabolism . And that is ONLY a part of what it helps with.
Second, Thrive will replace every vitamin you take and last you can refer 2 people to #Thrive and get your product for FREE every month which is less expensive than anything you can take!
And when done CORRECTLY, it absolutely positively WORKS! This #Wellnessednesday , get connected to accurate info...it just might rock your world as it has ours! PLUS this month you get $25 towards your order when you set up your FREE account! WooHoo!! Make it a GREAT day, y'all! 😁#themoreyouknow#getinformed#facts#lifestyle#health#wellness#fitness#results
That we have it all figured out. Life is full of plot twists and just when we think we have it sussed... it all changes. Again. And again. Life is an endless, beautiful - and often messy - learning opportunity💚 IF you allow it be✨ Tell us, what’s the greatest misconception others have about you?

Lots of people get embarrassed talking about sex. We get all sorts of mixed messages growing up but one clear message is that it's a taboo subject. It doesn't have to be! Increasing your comfort talking about sex can actually improve your sex life. When we are all tense about a subject, it can be hard to relax and really enjoy it. So if we feel uncomfortable talking about sex, chances are that we are tensing up when engaged in sexual activity too. You can take a step towards improving your sex life by increasing your comfort with the subject as a whole!

Ugh, so fucken tired of these "feminist" pages bashing #veganism Get a fucking clue already- #wakeup#unfollowing
It's like they're trying to turn us into the enemy to get away from their own guilt. If you're a feminist that supports females getting abused, sexually assaulted, tortured, murdered, used for your bodies, etc. then maybe re-examine wtf you're doing 🤔🤔 Veganism is becoming more mainstream. #veganismisthefuture and it's for everyone. For all walks of life. There are tons of #veganpoc and #poorvegans and #fatvegans and #unhealthyvegans too. Veganism isn't just for rich white ppl. 🙄 Nor is it only for super fit and/or thin ppl either. It's about saving animals. Tired of all the #misconceptions
🥛 Молоко: польза или вред?
На данный момент существует множество споров относительно вреда молока.
Например, самым распространенным является мнение о том, что молоко вымывает кальций: человеческий организм начинает гасить щелочью образовавшуюся при неполном растворении белка казеина. А щелочь в нашем организме имеется в виде кальция.
☝ Однако стоит знать, что в 2012 году Альянс врачей мира под предводительством Гарвардской Медицинской Школы постановил исключить молоко из списка продуктов, полезных для здоровья по нескольким причинам:
1. Использование гормональных добавок при кормлении коров на крупных промышленных молочных фермах. Эти вещества, при употреблении человеком, провоцируют рост раковых клеток. В большей степени подвержены риску мужчины, ввиду физиологических особенностей.
2. В состав коровьего молока входит говяжий жир, являющийся одним из наиболее «тяжелым» для нашего организма. Ввиду наличия насыщенных жирных кислот, процесс переваривания настолько длителен, что создается усиленная нагрузка на печень, выделяются токсины, нарушается обмен веществ, что приводит к развитию атеросклероза (отложение холестерина в просвете сосудов).
🐮 Молоко необходимо для вскармливания детенышей, и у каждого биологического вида его химический состав уникален ввиду совершенно разных физиологических потребностей для правильного развития малышей различных животных. Причем вскармливание молоком предусмотрено до определенного возраста. Человек вскармливается материнским молоком в среднем 1,5 года, после чего для дальнейшего развития организм начинает нуждаться в совершенно других микроэлементах.
Несложно предположить, что употребление коровьего молока для человеческого, а тем более взрослого организма является не вполне естественным как с точки зрения логики, так и с точки зрения биологии.
hello. today has been a day. you know those kind, the days that you don’t want to live in forever?
thankfully, there’s this fabulous concept of tomorrow. a new day, a new beginning, a new adventure.
because of the shooting in santa fe, texas, i would like to reach out and say that honestly, enough is enough. obviously, something in our today isn’t working, because this keeps happening, and lives- HUMAN BEINGS- are being forcefully taken from the beautiful earth that we live on. we keep saying that it’s unacceptable, but our words are simply not enough. i once thought that i couldn’t make a difference in the world, but i’ve come to learn that i don’t have to impact a multitude of people for my efforts to be valid. if my kindness, my positivity, my words, if they have an affect on one single soul, then it’s all worth it.
so. the point of this post. be aware. be conscious of your surroundings, and pay attention to the actions of your peers, because you honestly could make a difference. it may not be drastic, like we all wish we could do, but if your efforts touch one person, it’s worth it.
pick a new approach to your tomorrow.
make it better than today.
and as always, remember that you are not alone 💛
