It's not your parent's weed. In fact, it's much stronger. Today’s guest is neuroscientist Dr. Jodi Gilman of Harvard University, who has appeared on NPR, Science Friday, and the BBC. She studies the differences in the mental performance, brain structure and risk for psychoses between adolescent cannabis users and nonusers. In this episode, Therese Markow and Jodi Gilman discuss the two main components of cannabis and their function, medical research on marijuana use and harmful effects and the importance of understanding THC and CBD distinctions and related health assumptions.
"The commercial market has driven an increase in potency to provide the best, the bigger high and financial interest." — Jodi Gilman
