Also short-term effects of Marijuana consumption are euphoria, relaxation and pain modulation, but in long-term consumption, it result in disruption of cognitive function, movement control, coordination, short term memory and learning! There are some receptors in brain which are activated by a chemical called anandamide; these receptors have an effect on several mental and physical activities. Anandamide belongs to cannabinoid chemical group, so does TDH, which exist in Marijuana! With TDH imitating the actions of anandamide, the mentioned receptors are bound, neurons are activated and the whole process causes adverse effects on the mind and body.
