The brain is a complicated organ. When introduced to substances, its functions can be either enhanced or impaired. Depending on the person and their use of marijuana, the mind—and the body—can can be impacted in a variety of ways.
While every person’s response to marijuana or cannabinoid (CBD) products is different, there is growing evidence that cannabis can have a major impact on mental health.
So how do we separate the facts from the hype? What products can help us with mental health symptoms? And is there a major difference between recreational and medical marijuana use?
Join Dr. Staci Gruber as she addresses the myths and misconceptions of marijuana, discusses groundbreaking research on cannabis, and answers audience questions about the intersection of marijuana and mental health.
