Weed has become more mainstream and is now marketed as a wellness drug that can be tailored to individual needs. Different strains like Indica and Sativa are said to produce different effects – Indica for relaxation and Sativa for energy. But what are the actual benefits of cannabis for mental health? Does the strain you choose really matter? And is it safe to use, especially in terms of memory issues? To answer these questions, experts like agricultural scientist Dr. Sean Myles, neuroscientist Dr. Amir Englund, and psychologist Dr. Carrie Cuttler weigh in on the topic.
