Choosing the Right Cannabis for You - Part 1

The Neurochemistry of Cannabis

Cannabis is a plant that has captured the attention of humanity for thousands of years. While cannabis has been used for various purposes throughout history, the psychoactive effects have undoubtedly been the major attraction for most people.

Understanding the neurochemistry of cannabis is valuable because it informs you of which types will help you experience the mood & mental aptitude you need to achieve your goals.

You also need a sense of where your individual neurochemistry is at, more specifically the levels and activity of neurotransmitters. For example, when the neurotransmitter dopamine is low, you’re going to experience the most benefit from cannabis that stimulates dopamine synthesis and release. If your dopamine levels are out of balance (as is the case for sugar & alcohol addictions), then the types of cannabis that regulate dopamine activity may be more appropriate.

Modern research has demonstrated that many of the psychoactive effects from cannabis can be attributed to changes in neurotransmitter activity. While cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and CBG influence neurotransmitters, it’s the terpenes in cannabis that have the most direct effect on specific neurotransmitters.
