Humboldt Trees 5pk Joints 3.5g molecules that pass the blood-brain barrier will find that they fit snugly into receptors that ordinarily receive compounds called endocannabinoids, which the body produces itself. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system, which is involved in several functions, including stress, food intake, metabolism and pain, according to Piomelli, who also directs the Center for the Study of Cannabis at UC Irvine.
Cannabis has psychoactive and physiological effects when used. Immediate desired effects of cannabis use include relaxation and euphoria (feeling “high” or “stoned”), a general change in conscious perception, increased awareness of sensations, increased libido and distortions in perception of time and space. At higher doses, effects may include changes in body image, auditory and/or visual illusions, pseudogallucinations and ataxia due to selective disorders of polysynaptic reflexes. In some cases, cannabis can lead to dissociative conditions such as depersonalization and derealization.
