In No. 38 of the Cannabis Commerce + Chemistry Podcast, host Curt Robbins from Higher Learning LV and co-hosts Dena Putnam from Leafwize Naturals and John Bailey from the Mindset Genesis share their favorite cannabis research studies.
Our Favorite Cannabis Studies
Putnam offers a personal testimony and describes how both she and her mother gained relief from anxiety and PTSD by using CBD and THC. She explained how she experienced benefits from these cannabinoids and then researched the underlying mechanisms behind this relief, including appropriate dosing, frequency of administration, and potential negative side effects and interactions with other drugs.
Bailey explained that he enjoyed a study summary at Higher Learning LV entitled "Does Cannabis Enhance Creativity? Science Weights In" that offered evidence to suggest that the issue of cannabis-derived creativity in humans is more complex than meets the eye. The authors of this progressive and unique study explained that cannabis may merely create the illusion within consumers that they are experiencing enhanced creativity.
"The scientists behind the study also developed 11 subclasses of phytocannabinoids, which include delta-8 and delta-9 THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC."
Does Cannabis Increase Creativity?
The study revealed that cannabis consumers do, indeed, experience an increase in the type of strategic and exploratory thinking that benefits business entrepreneurs, particularly company founders.
Robbins said his favorite recent study summary at Higher Learning LV is one from March 2023 entitled "Cannabis—A State of the Art About the Millenary Plant: Part I" that offers a detailed and wide ranging coverage of cannabis in modern society, including its history as medicine and a detailed description of the 120 cannabinoids that have been discovered to date. The scientists behind the study also developed 11 subclasses of phytocannabinoids, which include delta-8 and delta-9 THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC.
All of the cannabinoids and terpenes discussed during this episode are part of Higher Learning LV's new course Core Cannabis. This deep dive course teaches students about the 25 most important cannabinoids and eight most common terpenes produced by cannabis. Students can enroll in Core Cannabis at >> https://bit.ly/3JN4IwW.
