Both CB1 and CB2 receptors may have a role in mediating the cannabinoid effects on vomiting. Whether through a CB1 receptor agonist or with CB2 binding, cannabinoids directly and indirectly affect serotonin,…

    THC works by mimicking the effects of pre-existing neurotransmitters in our brain known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are present in all mammals, fish and reptiles. They work by altering the activity of neurotransmitters within the brain which as a result cause the brain to function at a steady rate. THC causes specific regions of the brain that deal with thoughts, imagination, and perception to heighten to a point where whatever your senses pick up and/or you are thinking about will become…

    Cannabis, or cannabis sativa, originated in Central Asia and has been used for its psychoactive properties for many years (Iversen, 2008, p. 6). It affects the brain of adolescents and adults differently through the binding of CB1 receptors due to distinctions in neurocognitive development. There are certain changes in gray and white matter densities, brain volume, as well as endocannabinoid concentrations. This creates aberrations in cognition and memory performance. Cannabinoid’s structures…
