Behavioral and subjective effects of marijuana following partial sleep deprivation.

Separate and combined effects of marijuana and alcohol on mood, equilibrium and simulated driving

The results suggest that impaired balance following marijuana use may not coincide with slowed reaction time, and braking impairment from low doses of alcohol may not be revealed by tests of balance.

Subjective and Cognitive Effects of Cannabinoids in Marijuana Smokers

This chapter is aimed at summarizing the existing literature with respect to the subjective and objective cognitive profiles associated with marijuana use. Although subjective reports of marijuana

Subjective effects to marijuana associated with marijuana use in community and clinical subjects.

Effects of smoking marijuana on focal attention and brain blood flow

The data indicate that marijuana has dramatic direct effects on r CBF, but causes relatively little change in the normal pattern of task‐related rCBF on this auditory focused attention task.

Therapeutic Satisfaction and Subjective Effects of Different Strains of Pharmaceutical-Grade Cannabis

The results show that patients report therapeutic satisfaction with pharmaceutical cannabis, mainly pain alleviation, and some subjective effects were found to differ among the available strains of cannabis, which is discussed in relation to their different tetrahydrocannabinol/cannabidiol content.

Subjective effects for alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana association with cross-drug outcomes.

Internalizing and externalizing personality and subjective effects in a sample of adolescent cannabis users.

The comparative analysis showed that the internalizing profile has higher levels of clinical severity and more subjective effects reported than the externalizing profile, suggesting the need to design specific intervention strategies for each profile.

RationaleThe reinforcing effects of most abused drugs have been consistently demonstrated and studied in animal models, although those of marijuana were not, until the demonstration 15 years ago that

Disruptive Behavior Disorders and Marijuana Use: The Role of Depressive Symptoms

Depressive symptoms represent a link between DBDs and marijuana use that is suggested, but not well documented in the existing literature, and suggest a need to assess individuals presenting with symptoms of D BDs for depressive symptoms, as this symptom pattern may result in a greater likelihood of marijuana use.

Marijuana smoking: effects of varying puff volume and breathhold duration.

The utility of the controlled smoking technology is confirmed, the notion that cumulative puff volume systematically influences biological exposure and subjective effects is supported, but the common belief that prolonged breathholding of marijuana smoke enhances classical subjective effects associated with its reinforcing value in humans is cast doubt.

A cumulative dosing procedure for administering marijuana smoke to humans

The seed and the soil: effect of dosage, personality and starting state on the response to delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol in man.

Both experiments provided clear evidence of dose-dependent biphasic stimulant and depressant actions of delta 9THC on both subjective and objective measures, and these effects were influenced by the personality and the starting state of the subjects.

Preference for high- versus low-potency marijuana

The Clinical Pharmacology and Dynamics of Marihuana Cigarette Smoking

The results indicate that each subject smoked his or her two cigarettes at a similar rate and the plasma concentrations of THC, the self‐reported psychologic effects, and the heart rate acceleration produced by the smoking of the two cigarettes were identical between the sexes.
