Your Genes Have A Surprising Impact On How Marijuana Affects You

Marijuana is a widely used drug yet it remains unpredictable. Seasoned users can usually manage the effect that marijuana has on them, while also staying calm during an unpredictable high. For newcomers, however, it’s different; novice users usually can’t predict how the drug will affect them, whether it’ll lead to a paranoid high or giggle fest.

Science says your genes might play a part in how your body reacts to cannabis.

Cannabis can help save the bees: Cornell University

Hemp might prove more useful to bees than humans, and that’s saying a lot.

Researchers at Cornell University have discovered that the pollination powerhouses are attracted to hemp and the taller the plant, the bigger the party.

Cannabis and hemp are two forms of the same plant. They may look alike, but their effects are quite different.

“The deciding factor lies in the concentration of THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, the impairing compound found in the cannabis plant. The concentration of THC in hemp plants is usually so low (0.3 per cent or less) that it’s considered non-impairing. Cannabis, on the other hand, contains THC concentration of more than 0.3 per cent,” notes The GrowthOp.
