Stoned Science: Interactions Between THC and CBD
Often when people smoke marijuana, all of the credit for the high is given to Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but this isn’t the whole story. Through previous discussions you might recall that cannabidiol (CBD), alone, does not get you high. While this is true, there are some important interactions to consider.
Does CBD affect the high that THC provides and how does it do so?
Our bodies are broken up into many systems (i.e. cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, etc.), but one important system that doesn’t get much attention is the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
As you may have guessed, our ECS interacts with cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD. But it is more involved than you might imagine. The ECS is imperative to the body’s normal functioning—assisting in the regulation of pain and hunger to name a few.
New Study: Alcohol, Not Weed, Manipulates Brain Structure
We’ve been saying it for a long time, but now scientists are confirming: alcohol negatively manipulates the structure of the human brain and cannabis does no such thing.
The powers that be, especially within the deteriorating administration in the White House, continue to disseminate blatantly erroneous information about cannabis and ignore authoritative academic work, such as one most recent study.
Researchers from the University of Colorado, Boulder and the Oregon Health & Science University evaluated neuroimaging data among adults (18 to 55) and adolescents (14 to 18) and identified an association between alcohol use and negative changes in brain structure.
They identified no such association with cannabis.
