Cannabis (drug)

Cannabis (drug)
Cannabis is often consumed for its psychoactive and physiological effects, which can include heightened mood or euphoria, relaxation,[10] and an increase in appetite.[11] Unwanted side-effects can sometimes include a decrease in short-term memory, dry mouth, impaired motor skills, reddening of the eyes,[10] and feelings of paranoia or anxiety.[12] Effects Main short-term physical effects of cannabis A 2013 literature review said that exposure to marijuana had biologically-based physical, mental, behavioral and social health consequences and was "associated with diseases of the liver (particularly with co-existing hepatitis C), lungs, heart, and vasculature".[21] The medicinal value of cannabis is disputed. The American Society of Addiction Medicine dismisses the concept of medical cannabis because the plant fails to meet its standard requirements for approved medicines.

Cannabinoid receptor CB1 and CB2 structures. There are currently two known subtypes of cannabinoid receptors, termed CB1 and CB2.[5][6] The CB1 receptor is expressed mainly in the brain (central nervous system or "CNS"), but also in the lungs, liver and kidneys. The CB2 receptor is expressed mainly in the immune system and in hematopoietic cells.[7] Mounting evidence suggests that there are novel cannabinoid receptors[8] that is, non-CB1 and non-CB2, which are expressed in endothelial cells and in the CNS. In 2007, the binding of several cannabinoids to a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) in the brain was described.[9] The protein sequences of CB1 and CB2 receptors are about 44% similar.[10] When only the transmembrane regions of the receptors are considered, amino acid similarity between the two receptor subtypes is approximately 68%.[4] In addition, minor variations in each receptor have been identified.

Drink Marijuana Tea for a healthy heart Tea is a popular drink, and it can soothe the soul, help you sleep, and some kinds of tea are even good for a healthy heart. The popularity of tea has really risen over the last decade or so, with a lot of people choosing to drink it over things like soda, juice, or coffee. Many people may not realize that there is such a thing called marijuana tea. It is made from, you guessed it, marijuana! It is made fairly easily, simply by infusing marijuana into hot water. Cannabis Etymology The word cannabis is from Greek κάνναβις (kánnabis) (see Latin cannabis),[4] which was originally Scythian or Thracian.[5] It is related to the Persian kanab, the English canvas and possibly even to the English hemp (Old English hænep).[5] In modern Hebrew, קַנַּבּוֹס qannabōs modern pronunciation: [kanaˈbos] is used but מַעֲלֶה עָשָׁן maʿăleh ʿāšān modern pronunciation: [ma.aˈle aˈʃan] (smoke bringer) is the ancient term. Old Akkadian qunnabtu, Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian qunnabu were used to refer to the plant meaning "a way to produce smoke."[6][7][8]

Memory Overview of the forms and functions of memory in the sciences In psychology, memory is the process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Encoding allows information that is from the outside world to reach our senses in the forms of chemical and physical stimuli. In this first stage we must change the information so that we may put the memory into the encoding process. The healing power of : Marijuana (6) No I didn't forget on my favorite 'vegetable', here it is: Cannabis Sativa is medicine and hope for a dying planet.... Marijuana, also known as Mary Jane, pot, reefer, grass, ganja, damo, 'a smoke', weed or bhang, is a non-toxic, non-addictive herbal plant that humans have used in a wide variety of applications from our earliest recorded history. Marijuana’s legacy includes a colorful history of diverse peoples and their intimate relationships with “Mary Jane.”

Cannabis (disambiguation) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Cannabis may refer to: Cannabis, a genus of flowering plants that includes three taxa: Mood (psychology) A mood is an emotional state. Moods differ from emotions in that they are less specific, less intense, and less likely to be triggered by a particular stimulus or event. Moods generally have either a positive or negative valence. In other words, people typically speak of being in a good mood or a bad mood. Cannabis strains Types of varieties[edit] Major variety types[edit] Relative size of cannabis types The two species of the Cannabis genus that are most commonly grown are Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa.[1] A third species, Cannabis ruderalis is very short and produces only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and thus is not commonly grown for industrial, recreational or medicinal use.

Cannabinoid receptor type 1 Structure[edit] The CB1 receptor shares the structure characteristic of all G-protein-coupled receptors, possessing seven transmembrane domains connected by three extracellular and three intracellular loops, an extracellular N-terminal tail, and an intracellular C-terminal tail.[1] These receptors may exist as homodimers or form heterodimers or oligomers when coexpressed with one or more classes of G-protein-coupled receptors. Observed heterodimers include A2ACB1, A2A, CB1D2, orexin 1/CB1, while many more may only be stable enough to exist in vivo.[2] Recent evidence suggests that these receptors may also possess an allosteric binding site, which may become a target for enhancing the clinical modulatory effects of cannabinoids.[2] Mechanism[edit] Research suggests that the majority of CB1 receptors are coupled through Gi/o proteins.
