The “High” in Cannabis


The “high” that marijuana gives can be a desired result - or something the patient does not want. Effects from cannabis are different depending on the potency of THC, the way it is consumed, and the patients body chemistry. Every patient has a unique experience with marijuana.

When cannabis is heated, THCa will convert to THC, resulting in the “high.” Some describe it as being relaxing and euphoric with sedation and tranquility. (Source) Research showed that the user’s state of mind can influence the marijuana’s effects. Factors such as anxiety, low self-esteem, and worrying can cause short term paranoia.(Source)

The euphoric feeling is caused because THC mimics a neurotransmitter called anandamide. It is known as a “bliss” messenger cell that relieves pain and stimulates appetite. Anadamide breaks down naturally before it gives a euphoric feeling. When the THC is introduced, it will have a longer lasting effect, resulting in the feeling of being “high. (Source)

  1. It's a very sad situation indeed to hear Patients in need of their Meds cry for help and you hesitate to act, so it good to link them to the right source. I was diagnosed in Sept 2015 with Stage 4 Follicular NHL. This was based on bone marrow involvement. Because the report said "suggestive of lymphoma" instead of "definitive for lymphoma" I went to Sloane-Kettering for a 2nd opinion. They said, no, you are Stage 1 and recommended localized radiation and talked of a cure. I had the first course of 20 treatments and went for my scan and "surprise" here is another spot of localized involvement so we want to use radiation on that one too. (now I am Stage 2, I'm waiting for one of them to say Stage 3 so I can complete the hat trick). I said okay so went through my next 20 rounds of radiation. Meanwhile my medical oncologist is saying "watch and wait" but my research says that this is becoming old school. So, I agreed to wait for my next scheduled scan which was on July 20. I have a bunch of new lumps so expect a negative. I am leaning toward finding a new doc who will be more aggressive with chemo and monoclonal antibodies. I still had to give God all the glory and a big thanks to my Dr (supplier) A friend of mine found out about cannabis oil, which he referred me to a supplier. I quickly emailed him and got a feed back from him and he directed me on how to purchase the medication cannabis oil. Immediately i commenced with treatment with the cannabis oil as directed by the prescription manual. To God be the glory after started with 60 grams of the oil for couple of months. I got a pet scan last month and the dr said the cancer must have gone away. Once again you have to be aware that there is cure for cancer diseases today.For more info you can contact him directly via phone : (931) 410-0188 or email : medica420tions@gmail.com Good luck.
