'Standard THC units': a proposal to standardize dose across all cannabis products and methods of administration T.P. Freeman, V.Lorenzetti Addictions, 2019, Oct 12. doi : 10.1111/add.14842 © 2019 Society for the Study of Addiction. Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS : Cannabis products are becoming increasingly diverse, and vary considerably in concentrations of ∆9 -tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

Modulation of Social Cognition via Hallucinogens and “Entactogens”, Katrin H. Preller and Franz X. Vollenweider, 2019

Modulation of Social Cognition via Hallucinogens and “Entactogens” Katrin H. Preller and Franz X. Vollenweider Frontiers in Psychiatry, décembre 2019 doi: 10.3389/fpsyt.2019.00881 Social cognition is a fundamental ability in human everyday lives. Deficits in social functioning also represent a core aspect of many psychiatric disorders. Yet, despite its significance, deficits in social cognition skills are insufficiently targeted by current treatments. Hallucinogens and entactogens have been shown to have the potential to modulate social processing. This article reviews the literature on the influence of hallucinogens and entactogens on social processing in controlled experimental studies in humans and elucidates the underlying neurobiological and neuropharmacological mechanisms. Furthermore, [...]

The advent of whole plant CBD-rich oil as a grassroots therapeutic option has changed the national conversation about cannabis. It’s no longer a question of whether [...]

The potential mood-enhancing properties of chocolate may relate to its orosensory properties, psychoactive ingredients, and activation of neural reward pathways. However, only a few studies have analyzed associations between chocolate consumption and depressive symptoms, with conflicting results. The goal of this analysis was to evaluate associations between chocolate consumption and depressive symptoms in a large, representative sample of US adults enrolled in the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) between [...]
