“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 VIRUS UPDATE1050 Lincoln Way, Ste 1 - Pittsburgh PA

States across the nation are passing laws, reducing restrictions, and enacting new regulations to help support the transition from stay-at-home orders to the normal flow of life again.

To keep everyone at Anchored Child & Family Counseling safe, I will only be opening the office for in-person sessions 1 day of the week. The other days of the week will consist of teletherapy sessions until the mask wearing restrictions are reduced or eliminated and corona virus cases have gone down.

My office assistant and I will be monitoring insurance policies for any changes to corona-related cost share, copayment, and coinsurance policies. I will be checking and rechecking insurance policies to ensure you will be covered for teletherapy. At this time, all major insurance companies (UPMC, Highmark, Aetna, Optum/United, and Cigna) are continuing to provide coverage for teletherapy into September 2020.

Please continue to stay safe!
