About Cannabis

Cannabinoid, also called cannabis, is a powerful psychoactive substance from the cannabis plant. Native to Central Asia and the southern Indian subcontinent, the cannabis seed is used as a powerful drug for both oral and entheogenic uses and in many traditional medicines for hundreds of years. Many modern-day users of cannabis derive their power from this substance, which is found in a number of forms such as marijuana, hemp, oahu-oil, hashish, and many others. Anecdotal evidence suggests that ancient people, who believed in spiritualism and the powers of the mind, used the cannabis plant as a powerful stimulant and as an aphrodisiac. Today, people use the cannabis plant for varied purposes depending on the ‘high’ or high feeling that they are seeking to achieve. The potent substance presents many risks especially for inexperienced users and they need to be aware of the potential dangers of using this substance. Checkout Cannabis for more info.

Recent studies have revealed that despite the fact that the substance has high levels of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it can have harmful side effects to the brain when taken in sufficient amounts. People with schizophrenia and pre-existing mental disorders are the ones at risk most especially when exposed to the substance on a regular basis. The substance triggers a rush of dopamine, which causes a euphoric state and increases the heart rate. When the surge in the heart rate reached a level where there is toxicity to the brain, these individuals may suffer from hallucinations and delusions. This effect may lead them to commit acts of violent behaviour or may cause them to lose their ability to reason properly. Some may even lose their ability to speak altogether.

Although there are some effective medicinal properties of the substance, there are also some negative effects on the brain. When the brain is under the influence of the cannabis, it has no inhibitions about taking in large doses, especially when the person is in a state of confusion. When this happens, the brain can experience what are known as “cannabis effects”, whereby it can literally alter the functions of the human brain. Some of the common side effects include lack of concentration, memory loss, and reduced mental capacity, as well as short-term memory loss and depression. These symptoms may only last for a few hours or a few days, but they do persist until the body gets back into its equilibrium.
