The Chemistry Behind A Cannabis High And How THC's Psychoactive Properties Protect The Brain


'Drug companies are now routinely grinding up pure Cannabis Sativa and creating synthetic versions of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or synthetic ajulemic acid (AjA) and combining it with gelatin, glycerin, iron colored oxides, titanium dioxide and marketing this drugs to doctors and hospitals under the name marinol. However, it doesn't seem to interact with brain cells in the same way as the plant form, and although it generates no "high," the molecular mimic of THC does not appear to be as effective as the real thing.'
