Why Do People Use Marijuana?

Marijuana is used because its primary active ingredient, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), produces a relaxed state and may heighten
the senses.

What Are the Effects of Marijuana Use?

The effects from smoking marijuana are felt as soon as the THC enters the bloodstream and last from 1-3 hours. Absorption of THC
is slower if marijuana is ingested, typically producing effects 30 minutes to an hour after exposure and lasting up to 4 hours.
Marijuana increases the heart rate, relaxes and enlarges bronchial passages, and dilates the blood vessels in the eyes, which may
cause them to appear bloodshot. THC causes dopamine release, which produces euphoria. Colors and sounds may seem more
intense, time may appear to pass more slowly, and pleasant sensations may be experienced. Dry mouth is common, as are intense
thirst and hunger. After the euphoria passes, a user may feel sleepy or depressed. Some users experience anxiety or panic.

What Are the Risks Associated with Marijuana Use?

Smoking marijuana results in many of the same risks associated with smoking tobacco, including coughing, increased susceptibility
to lung infections, airway obstruction, and probably an increased risk of developing lung cancer. Other methods of taking marijuana
are not associated with respiratory damage. Even low doses of marijuana impair concentration and coordination. Long-term heavy
marijuana use may impair short-term memory long after the drug has been metabolized.

Study: CBD Oil "Highly Promising" In Pediatric Epilepsy Treatment

Tel Aviv, Israel: The administration of cannabis oil extracts high in cannabidiol reduces seizure frequency in children with
intractable epilepsy, according to clinical data published online ahead of print in the journal Seizure.

Israeli researchers retrospectively evaluated the effects of CBD oil in a multicenter cohort of 74 patients with intractable epilepsy.
Participants in the trial were resistant to conventional epilepsy treatment and were treated with CBD extracts for a period of at
least three months. Extracts in the study were provided by a pair of Israeli-licensed growers and were standardized to possess a
CBD to THC ratio of 20 to 1.

Investigators reported: "CBD treatment yielded a significant positive effect on seizure load. Most of the children (89 percent)
reported reduction in seizure frequency. ... In addition, we observed improvement in behavior and alertness, language,
communication, motor skills and sleep."
They concluded, "The results of this multicenter study on CBD treatment for intractable epilepsy in a population of children and
adolescents are highly promising. Further prospective, well-designed clinical trials using enriched CBD medical cannabis are

Other retrospective studies and surveys have previously reported CBD administration to be efficacious in reducing seizure

In 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration granted orphan drug status to imported, pharmaceutically standardized CBD
extracts for use in experimental pediatric treatment. Open-label safety trial data published online in December in the journal
Lancet Neurology reported a median reduction in seizures in adolescent patients treated with CBD that approached 40 percent.
Authors concluded, "Our findings suggest that cannabidiol might reduce seizure frequency and might have an adequate safety
profile in children and young adults with highly treatment-resistant epilepsy."
