I don't have a lot of time to write this post, although im sure it will drag on quite a bit. Now im not trying to get into a huge debate about whether or not THC and related chemicals cause brain alterations. I say alterations because I feel damage in an inherently negative word. We all know that after a lot of vaping there is some cognitive decline, however, for most, this seems to fade fairly quickly and mental abilities return to normal. It is my belief that the only time people believe effect linger, is when they have a fear of just that. I can't say how many times I have drunk decaf coffee, felt all jittery and geared up, heart palpitations and all...the whole time thinking it was caffeinated. Me being someone who has taken larger doses of caffeine in my life, and fully aware of the effects. But I digress. I only have one source to actually site when posing this question. But there has been much talk about THC being A) destructive to the brain and B) much more optimistically, THC and likewise chemicals initiating neurogenisis (growth of neurons = good). Now there are dozens of studies finding both the former and the ladder to be true, and this debate will hopefully come to an end in the next 10 years, making either stoners, or people in favor of the drug war feel pretty foolish. Again, hopefully the former. But I digress, again...sorry :/ pretty interesting topic so im hoping some readers are hooked and still reading by now. My main point: I've seen several times that CBD cancels out POSSIBLE neurologically "altering" effects of THC. When we vape, were getting more THC and less CBD, depending on temperatures. So if this amazing plant "intended" for both chemicals to be consumed simultaneously, might we be doing harm by circumventing the natural order? This is just a very vague thought, and it is easily contradictable, as the same study that said THC was neuroprotectant and neurogenitive also said that CBD helps protect from the negative effects. This was all sparked by the cannabanoids WIKI article. Im hoping that my blabbering was understandable, and at least factual enough to be considered seriously. Now im hoping that any and all with additional insight or information to any of the above thoughts will chime in. Thanks for reading! now sleep.
