“Is Marijuana Unsafe?” The Science Of THC & The Brain

Marijuana and mental illnessWhat do you think about that politically charged and easily accessible drug called marijuana?

In this video, I bring up some of the neuroscience behind marijuana including drugs in general. This is part 1 to a 2-part series on this topic. Next week we will revisit this topic as I discuss medications and their potential side effects.

I get questions from all over the world about this daily! It’s amazing how so many people hold polarized views about this in all sectors of the world. Despite these politically charged views, we need to look at the biological and neuroscientific effects of using THC to self-medicate or heal certain ailments.

In this video, I am strictly focusing on the biology and neuroscience of THC and how it affects the brain. Next week we will follow up on this topic by discussing the psychological, emotional, and cognitive effects of THC and prescription drugs.

Why do we need to talk about this?

It’s always useful to explore, no matter how politically charged a topic may be, what goes into our bodies as there is often major consequences to the long-term use of medications and other drugs.


I welcome your thoughts, comments, and experiences.
Take care!

CORONA VIRUS1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

Trying to understand all of the chaos associated with the #coronavirus can feel very overwhelming.

I want to let ALL of my clients/patients who come to Anchored Child & Family Counseling or who see me for consultations know that I am taking the necessary steps to ensure that all of the families and individuals who come to the office are safe and healthy.

Please know that, in the event Anchored Child & Family Counseling is asked to alter its hours or close for the safety of all clients/patients, I will be offering tele-health (online, computer, or phone) services. Although I do not anticipate this happening any time soon, this is important to be prepared for.

I also want to assure you that if I receive any information regarding the corona virus that involves your insurance and/or your care I will let you know as soon as possible.

Although many of the new reports may appear to be or feel exaggerated, as you know keeping our eyes open and making smart decisions is essential.

Please let me know if you have questions!
