The Harms of Marijuana & THC on the Young Brain

The Harms of Marijuana & THC on the Young Brain Bob and Brad with guest speaker, Chris the Pharmacist discuss the harms of marijuana and THC on the …


  1. I smoked pot heavy as a teen about 15 until I was about 25. I’m 38 now and quit over 13 yrs ago. I’d put my short term memory up against a non smokers and would be better than many. I’m not promoting it as it def set me back while I was using it but I believe the damage mostly heals not barely heals as you said.

  2. I smoked heroin made from opiates the same shit doctors every where prescribe for pain management. I love bob and brad but come on this shit has nothing to back it up. I also quit heroin using medicinal marijuana btw. I grow it i been smokin since 13 and now im 26 so half my life. CBD does miracles beyond science can even believe. All your shit pharmaceuticals suck. Cbd and thc are putting losers like his ass making money off the opioid crisis. Fuck a pharmacist and their lies. I used heroin for 4 years i can tell you opiates are worst but hes the same loser to prescribe a damn lortab for nothing.

  3. If it causes depression, then why is it medically approved to treat depression??

    I've been taking the CBD oil for a year now and I have to say, I've never felt so amazing in my entire life.

  4. wow people who are not drs that know anything about the drug giving their 2 cents that mean nothing. the plant is great for all people the thing that is bad is to much of a good thing and thc in the abount that will couse a high is to much you need 0.01% or less for a child or they are somewhat right. but the thing is that people do not see and understand with cbd is you need full plant extract with little but some thc-a both number 9 and 8 with all cbd and other compunnds they work together.

  5. Geniuses 'cite' science based 'facts. Most People do Not smoke cannabis to get 'high' these days with all the toxins in pharmaceuticals, food, beverages, and heavy metals in the air. WHO published a plethora of white papers, 164,000+ stating one cannot be harmed and or overdose when using cannabis. You'd think this discussion was the CDC's ill attempt at another crisis or something? You know, the MME the CDC put out, was solely based on opinion and entirely without scientific fact, evidence, or study of any kind? In addition, I know of 13 children inder the age of 15 years who're alive today because of cannabis – epilepsy in them was uncontrolled by synthetic medicines and 4 suffered brain damage from their seizures. Today, it's being proven that this cannabis is actually repairing the brain damage in some. Thank God for small miracles. The most dangerous drugs out there, is antidepressants…they kill and that's sad. Solve that issue please. As with many things, the lawsuits are about to roll

  6. This is for Bob…Why are you so self-righteous and say your son's friend uses marrijuana? Your point? I know… To let us know YOUR son doesnt use! Tell us about you, look at your own back yard. You just lost all your points and my respect for you. I will continue to see your videos because I love Brad, who is very humble, the way he takes your sarcasm with such Grace. It may be funny to you. I dont see it as funny when people use dabs of sarcasm to put down another person. It's mean and only intended to try to elevate yourself to Brads level of dignity and humility. You won't get there PERIOD. Please stop using him for your jokes. Use yourself.. That will be funny, since you already have caricature characteristics.

  7. Brad! Bob! This is Bullshit! You guys are really good but steer away from “experts” who don’t even offer studies that concur. Seems like this “pharmacist” is spewing crap he knows nothing about in order to protect the pharmaceutical industry. I really respect you guys but this brought my respect down some. Just say NO to bullshit!

  8. I was pretty much a daily pot smoker, a few hits a day unless we had some of the guys over…then the vap pens and blunts where making their rounds..cough! Cough! Anyway.I quit smoking cigarettes and vap pens , pot. My mental clarity is much better and I also feel I have a better grip on other area's of my life too. I have to admit quiting the cigarettes and drinking made the biggest change in my over all health . I just decided to quit the pot because I don't want to be inhaling anything I'm way more stressed out! And hope it gets better in time. I agree in most cases it's not a good idea for teenager's and young adults to be partaking. Im going on 64 so I think things will smooth out for me.I would rather eat the pot then smoke it.. I feel like a new women. 👍😉

  9. Hmm…at first my thoughts were GTFO, dislike. But I realized I have not watched this video in it's entirety….and So I have.
    Everyone will have their opinion and provide personal experiences. I decide not to add on. I will just say, like all things in life, moderation is key… cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome…interesting. Just that term alone… and being able look it up and educate myself about it was indeed profitable. I assume you guys already did a video about vaping too lol.

  10. Marijuana is used to treat pediatric diseases with great success, *without the side affects of big pharma prescriptions. These days when you watch commercials about the myriad of real drugs to treat diseases and pain, the side affects are worse than the actual affliction. I agree that recreational abuse of marijuana on the young brain is detrimental.. But to clain there is no use in pediatric medicine is a sin. I know several people who have used THC/CBD to treat people under 18yrs old, one was a leukemia patient. It was beneficial in more ways than one.
    Im going to unsubscribe, since I now believe im getting bad information.

  11. Yes. Stick with good ol’ pharmaceuticals because they have zero side effects. The commercials even say there are no side effects.

    Side effects may include sarcasm.

  12. Fix your diet quit blaming pot. Anxiety and suicide if you are eating wrong and feel like shit. Also pharmaceuticals to treat anxiety and suicide will cause anxiety and suicide as a side effect. Read the insert lol

  13. I’ve smoked marijuana sense I was 18 years old and now just turned 21. I’ve never had any of these problems let alone think about killing myself. I’m not sure where you got this information or where the studies took place but I think what you guys are saying is far from the truth. Now just because I’m saying this doesn’t mean I’m condoning young children to smoke pot. Of course it’s not good for kids to be doing. I just think you guys are making it seem a lot worse then it is. I work with my dad at RoadMaster, I am a full time welder and make a good living for myself. I bought my own car live in my own studio with my girlfriend. I’m a hard working man and when I come home form work I’m definitely smoking some pot rather then drinking beer or alcohol. I always load a fat bowl in my bong when I get home from work and let it riiiiip hard until I’m baked! Hey how about you do a study on me because I turned out great. 👍🏼

  14. A lot of these comments show they are not even understanding the video. Underage is the key here. I get there are pros to weed for chronic pain and ptsd. But young people have a high risk for any medicine including weed and alcohol.

  15. you lost me the minute your expert is a pharmacist. the one point all you folks seem to miss is causation and correlation its a very simple principal really but lost on you. unsubbed

  16. So glad to hear someone speak out. These same warnings were told us in school in the 60s. Yet, foolish people have signed petitions to make it legal. Legalization has not changed its danger.

  17. LOL, when you've got someone representing big pharma dissing what can be cultivated in the yard… This all boils down to atheism, whether you like big pharma or illegal drugs. They are both false gods.

  18. I, for one, do NOT use marijuana to get high, and don’t appreciate the broad generalization. I have MS and use it @ night to sleep because sleep meds no longer work. I could use it for pain during the day but I loathe feeling high. Everything else he said was completely negated by that uneducated statement.

  19. No links for the studies that you're quoting? Marijuana is a plant…it doesn't typically go through the chemical processes that opioids, cocaine, methamphetamine, and cigarettes, do. To group marijuana with these other things is ridiculous!

  20. The point is that the effect is different on a developing brain. This is not about what happens when adults use. Children, s brains are still developing and susceptible to impact.

  21. "Its easier to fool people than convince them they have been fooled". Lungs are for oxygen not burnt plant matter! When your heart gives out or when you get c.o.p.d, emphysema, or Alzheimer memory loss, you will wish you listen to these men! Instead of a salesman!

  22. I agree 100% with the stunting of brain development. The younger the worse. The second part; the one who used THC and had depression and anxiety, could it not be he had those and used THC as a solution? I smoke every hour, I listen to lectures, read, and write every day. I started smoking 3 years ago as a solution to my alcoholism. Marijuana has changed my life for the better. My depression is almost none existent, and my anxiety is slowly going down over time. I may have lapses in memory once in awhile, but I can still do anything anyone else can if not more, because I'm freed from my anxiety. My long term memory has suffered little to none. I can remember text books from high-school, lectures I've listened to over a year ago, books I've read two weeks ago.

    Speaking on dosage, I think THIS is the major problem right now. The THC in high-grade Marijuana these days is so high it can definitely cause psychosis and paranoia. Mine is around 20-25% THC, which is almost 5x higher than weed from the 90's or 2000's. I've had many terrible experiences from too much THC. This is something to watch out for.

    My conclusion is smoke it later in life 21+ and I don't think you will see many problems if you continue to use your brain and don't let it rot. My opinion is that the kind of people who are depressed and anxious use marijuana and don't have the motivation to continue to use their brain.

  23. “Tell Your Children” by NYTimes reporter Alex Berenson. The truth about marijuana, mental illness, and violence. This book cites the Norway twin study & other studies as well. Highly recommend reading it! The book will convince you that today’s marijuana is not worth it.

  24. Talk to the youth Chris. I don’t need your side comments that implements my adult usage. I really don’t need your type dictating what cannabis does to me. Your drugs contribute to the number 1 cause of death in the world. Wasted airtime 🤪
