The Anatomy of THC

The Anatomy of THC ____ In this video, Justin from the Institute of Human Anatomy discusses how cannabinoids affect structures …


  1. CLARIFICATION: At around 07:00, Justin misspeaks. THC has an inhibitory effect on the POMC neuron, causing LESS GABA (the neurotransmitter being secreted) to be released. The CB1 receptor is indeed stimulated, but in his excitement he made it seem as though an excitatory signal is being sent through the POMC neuron. Oh Justin…. Thanks to the user @Potatomanure for catching the flub!

  2. The world is full of poisons .. Marie juana helps us to understand how to counter these poisons.. you don't go further enought to my sens. Still I thank you cause you talk about this subject instead of letting the business rule the medicine.

  3. What are long term effects from taking THC? Has this even been studied? If not, Willie Nelson would probably talk with you about that, lol. Serious question though. ty.

  4. You forgot taste buds, an additional concept for the munchies.
    Also, the mirror neurons practically allow us to taste random foods that we might come across or think about. This really starts ramping up our systems that cause cravings. Just food for thought.

  5. Great video! I like to see how THC makes cancer cells commit suicide as per DR Sanchez since I found out that THC does cured cancer ♋️ I have 11 people that been cured from brain 🧠 tumor wish took 8 months to kidney tumors, breast cancer, stomach cancer, skin cancer etc if you can make a video would to see that in action ,have a great day

  6. I think it's interesting that we have a cannabinoid system , it seems like we're wired for pot. I mean we can get endorphins flowing from other things like , excercise, sex, but you can only get cannabis from cannabis! I think same can be said of opiate receptors. I think God, or who ever designed the human body (that's what I believe any way) gave us these receptors for the nice affects it gives us, especially pain relief. Or maybe some cave man took some weed and it affected our evolution. Do we have other receptors that seem to be waiting , like outlets to have a certain substance plugged into them ? I know there is much to learn yet about the brain, we know more about outer space than we know about the brain! I just might donate my body to science. I wouldn't mind if someone respectfully (like this guy) used my body parts to explain how the body and brain works. It seems strange that some people might go their whole life living with those receptors and never partake of the herb , and get the lovely experience one has with taking it. I also wonder how THC affects creativity. I'm an artist and it definitely improves my creativity. And helps with depression.

  7. What I'd REALLY like to see is an increase in the value of my WEED STOCKS. They might be on their way back, but only after losing 80% of their value in the last 5 years. I sincerely hope you guys can do/follow the research on all the different ways people respond to the means of ingestion.
