How much we know about marijuana and what questions remain - Business Insider [cached]

"It's pretty amazing" that we have so many unanswered questions, says Staci Gruber, an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and director of the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery program at McLean Hospital.

In one of the studies that Gruber's team is working on at the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) center at McLean Hospital in Massachusetts, researchers are testing to see if CBD can help reduce anxiety.
Gruber wonders what will happen when THC concentration "goes up to 40,50, 60%. People consume THC at those levels in some concentrated forms of cannabis, but we don't know if that sort of consumption carries additional health risks or not. On the one hand, high potency stuff may be worse for cognition, but on the other, Gruber says she's had people tell her they smoke less when they use more concentrated products.
"We should probably be doing a better job of understanding what the effects are," she says.
We don't have definitive answers yet, but Gruber's MIND program in Massachusetts is doing a lot to figure that out. The early data is both surprising and encouraging.
In one of their studies at McLean Hospital, Gruber and colleagues are following a group of medical marijuana users over time (longer than a year) to see how their health changes. By checking in on those users every couple months, they'll see if the product is helping them, and they'll also see how using marijuana is affecting the patients' sleep, cognitive ability, and quality of life. Additionally, they're tracking brain activity to see if any changes occur over time.
"I think this large scale observational study is the first of its kind and will really serve the public," Gruber says.
"We have no shortage of data from chronic, heavy users," says Gruber. But we know far less about occasional smokers, she says.
Following kids over a long period of time is probably the best way to understand when and why they start using a substance, according to Gruber.
As Gruber explains it, "We're not really after the good or the bad - we're after the truth."

That research is essential so that we know "how best we can use it, what are the safest ways, and what are the real risks," Staci Gruber, an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and director of the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery program at McLean Hospital, told Business Insider.
