This study investigated the contribution of different cannabinoids to the subjective, behavioral and neurophysiological effects of smoked marijuana. Healthy marijuana users (12 men, 11 women) participated in four sessions. They were randomly assigned to a low or a high Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol group (THC; 1.8% versus 3.6%). In the four sessions under blinded conditions subjects smoked marijuana cigarettes containing placebo (no active cannabinoids), or cigarettes containing THC with low or high… Expand
Neurophysiological and cognitive effects of smoked marijuana in frequent users
TLDR
Overall performance accuracy was not significantly altered by marijuana, although the drug increased response times during task performance and induced a response bias towards labeling "new" words as having been previously seen in the verbal episodic memory task. Expand
Impact of cannabidiol on the acute memory and psychotomimetic effects of smoked cannabis: naturalistic study
TLDR
The antagonistic effects of cannabidiol at the CB1 receptor are probably responsible for its profile in smoked cannabis, attenuating the memory-impairing effects of THC. Expand
Oral Cannabidiol does not Alter the Subjective, Reinforcing or Cardiovascular Effects of Smoked Cannabis
TLDR
It is suggested that oral CBD does not reduce the reinforcing, physiological, or positive subjective effects of smoked cannabis, as well as the effect of oral THC on smoked cannabis administration. Expand
Psychotomimetic and Cognitive Effects of Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Laboratory Settings
Abstract There exists a rich literature of human laboratory studies (HLS) involving cannabis and cannabinoids dating back to the 1970s, reporting on an array of outcomes ( Sherif, Radhakrishnan,Expand
Acute psychomotor, memory and subjective effects of MDMA and THC co-administration over time in healthy volunteers
TLDR
Co-administration of THC with MDMA increased desired subjective drug effects and drug strength compared with the MDMA condition, which may explain the widespread use of this combination. Expand
The Effect of Chronic Cannabinoids on Broadband EEG Neural Oscillations in Humans
TLDR
Data suggest that chronic exposure to exogenous cannabinoids can alter the ability to generate neural oscillations, particularly in the gamma range, which is consistent with preclinical animal and cellular data, which may have implications for understanding the short- and long-term psychopharmacological effects of cannabis. Expand
Acute Effects of Marijuana Smoking on Negative and Positive Affect
TLDR
Findings show that expectancy instructions and pharmacology play independent roles in effects of marijuana on negative affect, and marijuana users who expected more impairment from marijuana displayed more anxiety after smoking active marijuana, whereas those who did not expect the impairment became less anxious after marijuana. Expand
Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol in psychosis: A balancing act of the principal phyto-cannabinoids on human brain and behavior?
TLDR
It is demonstrated that CBD attenuates THC induced subjective and objective effects relevant to psychosis- but in a dose/ratio dependent manner. Expand
Neurophysiological functioning of occasional and heavy cannabis users during THC intoxication
TLDR
It is confirmed that heavy cannabis users develop tolerance to some of the impairing behavioral effects of cannabis, which was also evident in the underlying ERPs, suggesting that tolerance demonstrated on performance level is not (completely) due to behavioral compensation. Expand
Effects of acute oral Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol and standardized cannabis extract on the auditory P300 event-related potential in healthy volunteers
TLDR
The data suggest that Delta(9)-THC may lead to acute impairment of attentional functioning and working memory. Expand

Effects of marijuana on neurophysiological signals of working and episodic memory
TLDR
The results suggest that marijuana disrupted both sustained and transient attention processes resulting in impaired memory task performance, and in subjects most affected by marijuana a pronounced ERP difference between previously studied words and new distracter words was reduced, suggesting disruption of neural mechanisms underlying memory for recent study episodes. Expand
Comparison of the subjective effects of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol and marijuana in humans
Rationale. There has been controversy about whether the subjective, behavioral or therapeutic effects of whole plant marijuana differ from the effects of its primary active ingredient,Expand
Comparison of the subjective effects of Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol and marijuana in humans.
TLDR
The results support the idea that the psychoactive effects of marijuana in healthy volunteers are due primarily to THC. Expand
Hypnotic and Antiepileptic Effects of Cannabidiol
Abstract: Clinical trials with cannabidiol (CBD) in healthy volunteers, insomniacs, and epileptic patients conducted in the authors' laboratory from 1972 up to the present are reviewed. Acute dosesExpand
Marijuana smoking: effect of varying delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol content and number of puffs.
TLDR
Puff number/THC content combinations producing comparable plasma THC levels resulted in similar subjective effects and performance impairment and provided a comprehensive assessment of the pharmacological effects of smoked marijuana over a wider and more precisely controlled dosage range. Expand
Comparison of effects of marihuana cigarettes of three different potencies
TLDR
The results indicate that, irrespective of the potency of the marihuana, the pattern of smoking was much the same and the magnitude of the subjective high, heart rate acceleration, THC, and 9‐carboxy THC plasma concentrations were proportional to potency. Expand
Effects of Expectancies on Subjective Responses to Oral Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol
The effects of expectancies on subjective responses to oral Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) were examined. Thirty-five regular marijuana users were assigned to one of two groups: one group was toldExpand
Effects of Cannabidiol (CBD) on Regional Cerebral Blood Flow
TLDR
The results suggest that CBD has anxiolytic properties, and that these effects are mediated by an action on limbic and paralimbic brain areas. Expand
Influence of cannabidiol on delta‐9‐tetrahydrocannabinol effects
Experiments investigating the possible interaction of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), two major components of marihuana, were conducted under controlled laboratory conditions in aExpand
Effects of expectancies on subjective responses to oral delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol.
TLDR
Subjects in the current experiment who expected to receive a cannabinoid reported greater pleasurable effects than subjects who did not have this expectancy, which has implications for understanding the effects of cannabinoids when used in both recreational and clinical settings. Expand
