Cannabis At A Glance


The non-psychoactive effects of some of the other chemicals found in cannabis include cannabidiol (or CBD), which has very little psychoactive effects on the body and is actually considered the “love drug” of humans. Cannabidiol does not cause a “high,” but provides a relaxing feeling and increase in serotonin activity that lead to feelings of happiness, calmness and stimulation. In fact, many people who use marijuana and other cannabis products frequently consume CBD without any apparent change in their moods or behavior. In fact, people who use CBD regularly report feeling calm and having less anxiety than those who do not consume CBD. Research on animals also suggests that CBD may help reduce seizures and improve nerve cell function.You can get additional information at cannabis.

Cannabidiol can also become dependent upon the specific type of cannabis used. For example, users of cannabis that contains higher concentrations of THC may become dependent upon this ingredient to achieve a “high.” Other types of cannabis, which lack the specific components that cause a “high,” may include cannabis that contains lesser concentrations of CBD. People who start using cannabis with lower concentrations of CBD may begin to feel the “high” effect as an obvious result, but overuse of CBD may lead to tolerance and eventually withdrawal if the user’s body becomes dependent on the substance.

Research indicates that long-term cannabis use may cause some degree of depression, anxiety, memory problems, irritability and schizophrenia. However, the psychotropic effects of cannabis are not known and much research is currently being done to determine whether these psychotropic properties are found in cannabis sativa or another plant species that produces similar psychoactive properties. What is known is that cannabis does have significant psychoactive properties and may be responsible for a variety of medical conditions such as short-term memory loss, nausea and headaches, depression and anxiety, nausea and vomiting, psychosis and some types of schizophrenia. It is possible that the psychoactive properties found in cannabis sativa are responsible for the reduced olfactory ability that people experience when they become addicted to cannabis. There are currently no known long-term health effects associated with cannabis use.
