The endocannabinoid system in the body is a primary target of THC, the key cannabinoid in marijuana. What is the endocannabinoid signaling system? Where is it localized? What are its functions? How do THC and endocannabinoids act? What are phytocannabinoids (compounds made by plants)? What are THC actions in the body? (receptor targets in the brain, peripheral tissues) Do THC and opioid signaling systems crosstalk? Do actions by THC (plant-derived) or endocannabinoids (made by the brain) differ? Does THC affect neurodevelopment? Medical marijuana and recreational marijuana; do they differ? What are the consequences of THC actions? Does THC engender neuroadaptive changes? Are the effects of THC related to dose and frequency of use? What are the short- and long-term implications of marijuana?

Weekly sessions in the IASIC Speaker Series are free to join and the schedule is constantly expanding! For more information visit
