A BBC two Horizon documentary about the historical past of the cannabis plant, tracing its earliest origins, from pre-human instances, by means of human’s first encounter with the plant, it really is utilizes in early civilisations and its migration across the globe to the present day. It exhibits how people had been (pre-installed) with THC receptors in our nuerological build up, top us, inevitabley, to intake it really is chemical properties. It shows how the plant has psychotropic properties (affecting the brain and triggering defective behaviour, ie depression, paranoia and so forth..), BUT, naturally the plant generates CBD, which counteracts the psychotropic affects, (it essentially balances out the unballancing carried out by THC ), BUT with higher power strains continuously becoming bred for higher potency, something has to give, and it is CBD (the stuff that stops your brain losing it), by raising the THC degree, the plant has to drop its CBD degree, to remain in balance. Scientific studies on rats have shown that the young creating brain ie, beneath 18yrs old in humans, are significantly affected by higher THC and minimal CBD strains of skunk, and (can) have lasting damaging affects by means of life, simply because it damages neural paths in the brain that are nonetheless forming.
