A massive new report released in January by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine helps sum up exactly what we know — and, perhaps more important, what we don’t know — about Marijuana and the science of weed.

 Does Marijuana can make you feel good!!?

When excited by drugs, the reward system creates feelings of euphoria.

One of the weed’s active ingredients, tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, interacts with our brain’s reward system, the part that has been ready to respond to things that make us feel good, like eating and sex.

But  some studies have suggested that excessive marijuana use could be a problem, the more often you trigger that euphoria, the less you may feel during other rewarding experiences.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Within a few minutes of inhaling marijuana, your heart rate can increase by between 20 and 50 beats a minute. This can last anywhere from 20 minutes to three hours. The same  report founds some limited evidence that smoking could be a trigger for a heart attack.

Do weed can help relieve some types of pain!!!?

The new report also found conclusive or substantial evidence — the most definitive levels — that cannabis can be an effective treatment for chronic pain, which could have to do with both CBD and THC. Pain is also “by far the most common” reason people request medical marijuana, according to the report.

Other studies testing both other cannabinoid products and inhaled marijuana have shown similar pain-relieving effects, according to the report.

A preliminary 2005 study of 58 patients with RA, roughly half of whom were given a placebo and roughly half of whom were given a cannabis-based medicine called Sativex, found “statistically significant improvements in pain on movement, pain at rest, quality of sleep” for patients on Sativex.

What  Marijuana can do with your sense of balance.

It may throw off your balance, as it influences activity in the cerebellum and basal ganglia, two brain areas that help regulate balance, coordination, reaction time, and posture.

A 2012 paper sought to draw some more solid conclusions from some of the studies on those anecdotal reports, but it was unable to do so.

Feeling as if time is sped up or slowed down is one of the most commonly reported effects of using marijuana

“Even though 70% of time estimation studies report overestimation, the findings of time production and time reproduction studies remain inconclusive,” the paper said.
