Marijuana is getting more and more popular every year. The public sentiment is changing and states across the U.S. are now legalizing marijuana for recreational and medical use. What does marijuana do for your brain? What does marijuana do to your body? What are the potential risks and benefits of using marijuana?

We will discuss the endocannabinoid systems, the differences between sativa strains and indica strains, side effect, and how your brain reacts to drugs.
