Understanding the Impact of Cannabis on a Teenager’s Developing Brain Leave a comment

Based on findings from the 2017 Australian Secondary School Student’s Survey (ASSAD), approximately 29 percent of Australians have experimented with cannabis by the age of 16. Notably, cannabis has maintained its status as the most commonly used drug among young individuals for more than a decade.

Commonly referred to by various names such as weed, pot, grass, 420, marijuana, dope, joint, blunt, blaze, mull, hydro, yarndi, ganja, bud, and green, cannabis has a diverse range of colloquial terms. The effects of cannabis consumption can be highly variable, even within different sessions. Factors such as an individual’s weight, family history of mental health conditions, and personality traits can significantly influence the outcome of each usage experience.
