Science Shows What You Think Will Make You Happy Probably Won’t

Science says there’s a good chance you don’t know what really makes you happy. When estimating our happiness, we humans tend to engage in something called “impact bias” where we overestimate the actual effect that different outcomes will have on our lives. #happiness

When if they think they’d be happier winning the lottery or becoming paraplegic, most people quite understandably respond that they’d be happier with all that money and no handicap.

Still, real life statistics show that one year after winning the lottery or losing the use of their lower body, people in both these groups are equally happy. Yes, really, EQUALLY.

Researchers Develop Faster Test For Cannabis Potency and Quality

“There is a growing demand on testing labs from licensed cannabis growers across the US and Canada who are under pressure to perform potency testing on ever-increasing quantities of product,” says Matthew Noestheden, Ph.D. chemistry student under Prof. Wesley Zandberg at UBC’s Okanagan campus. “Traditional tests can take upwards of 20 minutes to perform, where we can do it in under seven. It will save a great deal of time and money for producers with enormous greenhouses full of thousands of samples requiring testing.” Noestheden says that not only can he test the substance in record time, but he can also test for a virtually limitless number of phytocannabinoid variants. #cannabis

Here’s What Epigenetics Means for Humanity’s Awakening

Here’s What Epigenetics Means for Humanity’s Awakening

Epigenetics currently sits on the fence between accepted mainstream science and New Age panacea. Scientists who have been hesitant to admit that genes are not static are being forced to rethink their positions, while spiritualists and believers in the law of attraction swear that epigenetics proves that our state of mind directly determines our physical health and body. While the research has been taking place for decades, it is only now coming to be understood that our individual experiences and environmental factors can change us on the genetic level. #epigenetics #awakening
