Whether a person uses marijuana for its therapeutic or euphoric properties, at times it can produce a variety of physical and psychological side effects. Not everybody experiences the same effects and reactions can vary depending on the type of cannabis and the way it’s consumed. Still, it’s best to understand some possible side effects that you may experience.
The primary effect caused by marijuana that most people are familiar with is the psychoactive response or “euphoric high” that users often feel. This mind-altering response is caused by tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, a cannabinoid that makes its way to the bloodstream and eventually interacts with cell receptors in the brain.
