Since the legalization of marijuana, it has become one of the most popular drugs used today. According to a 2016 Gallup poll, 13 percent of American adults regularly use marijuana, nearly double since 2013. While there is a stigma surrounding the use of marijuana, it is important to know is that there are two different ingredients, and that it can be incredibly useful, specifically to treat chronic pain. Marijuana is made up of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These two ingredients are known as cannabinoids. They are also the key to creating different strains and effects in marijuana.
First let's talk about THC. THC is the addictive part of marijuana, and is the part that triggers the release of dopamine, causing the pleasurable feeling of getting high. It also relaxes the nervous system, which then targets part of the brain that controls a person’s ability to focus and form new memories. This is why individuals may feel sleepy and have a difficult time concentrating while they are high. So with poor concentration daily tasks can also be more difficult, and can impair driving. These negative effects take place when ingesting the THC portion of marijuana plant.
Now onto the other part of marijuana, and what we believe is the most beneficial, CBD. Unlike THC, when it comes to CBD, it cannot make a person feel high. Elevated levels of CBD actually stop a person from experiencing a high. CBD does not cause impairment to the brain, but does have a positive effect on the brain. The CBD rich cannabis is why it is becoming more recognized as a medical treatment for certain disorders; such as anxiety or depressive disorders and epilepsy. CBD also had no effect on spatial reasoning or short-term memory.
