Never Forget?

Prompted by “Scientists Figured Out How to Block Pot’s Effect on Memory”: http://www.hightimes.com/read/scientists-figured-out-how-block-pot%E2%80%99s-effect-memory

This is great news, but I still maintain my hypothesis stating the relatively minor memory and other cognitively limiting effects are not necessarily bad — they nicely (upon proper intake) compel the user to relax excessive mental activity that logically wears down the physical parts of mentality (increasing the risk of mental breakdowns — e.g. dementia).

I have a lot of work to do today, so I’ll leave you with some basics from the prompting piece and wish you a lovely day.

“Recent work published by researchers in Barcelona has just uncovered more details about the neurochemical pathway that leads to marijuana’s psychoactive effects, specifically its effects on memory. Not only did they make a breakthrough in the neurochemistry of cannabis, they also designed a compound that was able to block THC’s effects on memory in mice.”

“While the CB2 receptor stills retains some of its mystery, scientists have known for a while that the CB1 receptor is the one responsible for the ‘high’ in cannabis.”

“…researchers in Barcelona decided to look deeper into the serotonin receptor – cannabinoid receptor connection, and they found that the two receptors are literally connected to each other.”

“By performing experiments on mice they found that THC’s effect on short-term memory is not the cannabinoid receptor’s ‘fault,’ in a manner of speaking. The attached serotonin receptor seems like the culprit for certain psychoactive effects, while the pain relief and other medical benefits of THC stem from the cannabinoid receptor.”

“This same serotonin receptor is also involved with the hallucinogenic and psychedelic effects of famous substances like LSD and psilocybin, the active component of magic mushrooms.”

“Cannabis has great medical potential, but the effects on memory and anxiety are clearly not for everybody, even as a matter of taste.”

I'm an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an entertainer working and resting as my careful contribution to help improve society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest.
