Tutor description

Tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) has been found to bind to receptor sites in the cerebellum, hippocampus, cerebral cortex, and basal ganglia. Research suggests that THC binding to these receptors may be responsible for the effects observed upon inhalation of marijuana (Doweiko, 2002). Research has also found that marijuana inhibits the enzyme adenylate cyclase and may be the reason marijuana helps with pain relief. Marijuana effects the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (in the limbic region), which effects one's alertness and can possibly explain marijuana's sedative effect (Doweiko, 2002).
