Transcript: RECREATIONAL DRUGS: CANNABIS The Mode Of Action of Cannabis MODE OF ACTION Effects of cannanbis are explained on the basis of the cannabinoid receptor system. The main ingredient in cannabis is THC which binds to and activates the specific receptors known as cannabanoid receptors. Cannabinoid receptros There are two main cannabinoid receptors that are acted on; cannabinoid 1 and 2 How THC works THC interferes with the normal functioning of receptors in parts of the brain by activating cannabinoid receptors 1 and 2; it stops them from carrying on their normal function at the synapse. Parts of the brain affected The Cerebellum The Hippocampus The temporal lobe How the brain is affected Cannabis affects the cerebellum, the part of the brain involved in balance, posture and coordination of movement. The hippocampus is involved with memory formation, someone who is taking marijuana will have impaired short term memory and new learning may be needed. Cannabis also affects the temporal lobe responsible for processing sensory input; cannabis use leads to enhancement of perception. PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS Physiological Effects When Cannabis is smoked by non-tolerant individuals, some of the physiological effects include: - increased heart rate - Dry mouth - Eyes reddening - Muscle relaxation PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS Psychological effects Cannabis use affects the hypothalamus causing increased appetite. As well as this, it affects the amygdala causing increased anxiety and paranoia. The hippocampus is also affected by cannabis use by impairing learning. WITHDRAWAL W WITHRAWAL - Depression - Apetite changes -Vvid dreams - Increased Aggression
