  1. "how the brain responds to marijuana" according to YOUR testing conditions & YOUR doctors whilst only representing a small amount of the human population yet this applies to me? even though I'm neurologically atypical and none of the literature that's out there has no proper description about someone like me who has ADHD (which btw still no one knows about) and yet I am still in association with these brains because of a numerical average? Get real

  2. I am 18 and have been a daily smoker for a few years on and off. The science in the video makes sense. I am not knowledgeable enough to prove/disprove the science. HOWEVER if your talking science talk science. Don’t spew a bunch of garbage all over thc in the last 10 seconds without any science. If your going to make so many negative claims I want science on the dangers. Explanation! When I smoke daily my life goes up and up. I am able to handle and save money, do hard work, have good social connections, and enjoy life all a little better🤷‍♂️ figure it out bitch don’t tell me my IQ is low. My whole family struggles with depression and we’re all right, nothing terrible in our lives but I think it’s just genetics. Grandma, mom, and I plus relatives deal with similar depression and for me it’s hard to deal with at times, especially at night then dealing with insomnia from it. For me a few puffs is all I need before bed and it honestly helps SO much.

  3. Like most of mainstream medicine, completely INCORRECT. They are trying to say marijuana affects the pleasure center through dopamine like other drugs because they simply do not understand the complex effects of the endocannabinoid system and are literally making up that it must work like other drugs to get you high. Marijuana, unlike other drugs does not have significant physical withdrawal because it's mechanism of action is different. This is misleading garbage that is not supported by sound medical evidence.

  4. Well, I thank Waheguru for this plant and allow the reverberation of the Naam, which is truth in itself. I also thank the active work of neuroscientists, members of the community and legislature who have sought to decriminalize the use of this plant, with active countries participating in complete decriminalization such as, Uruguay and Canada for recreational purposes, let alone for medical use. Our stringent and toughest warrior class the Nihangs actively consume Bhaang (be it ceremoniously or perhaps for 'Dhain' (supreme concentration), I suppose their IQ levels as suggested by this video is almost nullified by the deaf nuances created by this collection of highly suggestive video's which we certainly are not in congruous with. It is because of this attitude that as a group of highly successful farmers we shall never be allowed cultivation and fail to understand the ramification of the corporate sector set to regulate and control the supply of this plant. Furthermore I also thank Waheguru who created the FMRI which shall shed much more light upon the actual working of our neurotransmitters. Gotta love Waheguru for also showing us the pathways towards achieving neurogeneis. I also thank Waheguru that a combo of Swiss cheese, a latee and a bar of Cadbury's dark chocolate will actually affect my dopamine pathways in the very way this video suggests THC would.

  5. There is no evidence that marijuana lowers IQ. It's a supposition. Although there is more research being done on marijuana then ever before a lot of the studies are small or have to make adjustments for other life style choices. For example, in a user who is taking marijuana and alcohol it can not be definitively stated that marijuana caused the changes to the brain. I'm not arguing that it doesn't change the brain, or doesn't lower IQ. I'm simply saying that the evidence so far is too limited to make certain statements definitively. Marijuana addiction is real but it's estimated to occur in about 9% of users. So there is less addiction potential than some other substances, but the addictive behaviors are identical to users of other substances or processes.
