Does caffeine affect the effects of cannabis?
Cannabis is a substance which for years has been frowned upon by society mainly due to the massive level of misinformation and manipulation towards the masses by the media. On the other hand, caffeine is a product whose cultural value is essential for dozens of agricultural countries, but have you ever wondered what would happen if these two substances were combined?
Although caffeine is a stimulant and marijuana a depressant, the effects of both do not cancel each other (as can happen with alcohol), but coffee enhances the effects of the herb. A 2017 study showed that both caffeine and marijuana increase dopamine levels and spikes in their users. If separately they increase these levels, together they enhance said increase, which results in a euphoric state and of much happiness and exaltation, however; not everything is rosy. Like any substance that alters the normal functioning of the body, one must be careful with its side effects, since combining these two substances can cause a higher heart rate and other effects such as insomnia.
Cannabis and caffeine are not a bad combination, in fact, there are companies that experiment with products based on these two substances. Mixing cannabis (in small doses) with coffee (in small doses) can be a highly rewarding experience.
If you are going to put cannabis in your coffee, it is best to do it in minimal doses; in this way, the body can absorb and process these substances little by little. In the end, you will know to what extent you can consume them.
