4.  What are the effects of marijuana?
Marijuana has several different effects when used. The intensity of the effects is greatly influenced by the potency of the marijuana. Common immediate effects include:

  • Increased hunger, dry mouth, and blood-shot eyes
  • Memory and perceptions may be impaired
The long-term effects of marijuana use are highly debated topic in today’s society. Some studies have proven marijuana smoke to be much more harmful than cigarette smoke and with pro-longed use may increase the risk of lung cancer. Another effect of marijuana use is an increased heart rate, which over a long period of use could be considered a risk.

5.  What gives marijuana its psychoactive effects?
The resin of the hemp plant’s flowers, often referred to as buds, contains THC. THC or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is the main active chemical compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive effects. The higher amount of THC in marijuana increases its potency.
