How weed effects the parts of our brains
the thc process
Marjuana contains mainly THC and CBD in different percentages. THC attaches to cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. These receptors are part of several areas of the brain, helping to explain the different effects of the drug. Receptors communicate each other across contact point called synapses, TCH modifies nerve action.
The areas with highest concentration
This part of the brain is fundamental in memory, thinking, consciousness and sensibleness. Smoking alters consciousness, distorts perception and memory; occasionally feeling of delusion or hallucinations.
The hypothalamus is responsible for the regulation of some metabolic processes and activities of the nervous system. Is the receptor that increase the appetite.
The brainstem provides the main motor and sensory nerve supply to the face and neck via the cranial nerves. It’s also involved in vomit reflex, blood pressure, heart rate and movement. While smoking there is a Nausea relief, a rapid heart rate, a reduction of blood pressure and drowsiness. Related to movement it helps to reduce pain and tremors.
The hippocampus plays important roles in the consolidation of information as in short-term memory as well as in long-term memory, and in spatial memory that enables navigation. In smokers there is an impairment in memory.
The human cerebellum does not initiate movement, but contributes to coordination, precision, and accurate timing. Smoking reduces spasticity and impaired coordination.
It has a primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making and emotions such as fear, anxiety, and aggression. TCH can create sense of anxiety and panic in some cases, or reduce it and blocking traumatic memories in others. It’s prove that reduces hostility.
