The reason behind these side effects can most probably be taking ibuprofen with THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).

Ibuprofen is a drug that is used for inflammatory or analgesic. The recent study in the journal Cell explained the reason that how the inflammatory drug like ibuprofen kills weed’s buzz and resist its adverse impact on the brain. The research has come with a hope that Cannabis may become a remedy to treat patients with Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The daily weed consumption results in higher tendril growth in the brain, which then hits the brain cells and enhances the speed of cognition. Therefore, where cannabis has many negative impacts, it does have positive effects too.

Taking high or low intake of weed are both not suitable for patients who can get benefits to cure mentioned above diseases. Using Marijuana as a remedy is only possible when wanted and unwanted side effects get separated. For this, cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) induction should be inhibited. COX-2 is a neurochemical process, which starts with inflammation. Researchers identified that the COX-2 level gets increases due to the presence of THC in weed. The researches have concluded that weed has basically both Anti-inflammatory and inflammatory effects on the brain.

You can add ibuprofen (Cox inhibitor) in the mixture, which will completely eradicate the buzz impacts on cognition and persist the THC level.

Also, they suppressed the COX-2 process with the use of medications.

Moreover, they also did research on mice to show the difference between THC anti-inflammatory effects and intoxication effects. Mice were given a COX inhibitor and THC for many days so it can develop beta-amyloid plaques. During the process, the researchers noticed the absence of lethargy in mice, and due to the high use of THC, the brain memory cells got adversely impacted.
