Effects Of Drinking And Getting High : In This Research Test
The effects of marijuana on those who drank alcohol got stoned sooner than those who only smoked it and marked their experience as subjectively “better”. This means that getting drunk causes more THC to reach the brain through the bloodstream within the few minutes of absorption, it is also said that alcohol may cause changes in blood vessels that increases the absorption of inhaled THC in marijuana.
Lukas also stated that he is not worried that the combination of both substances could be lethal but getting cross-faded could be riskier than just getting drunk or high alone because the effect of both will be much stronger which means that accidents are most likely to happen. He also points out that the amount of drugs that he used for his research were lower than the levels that people often use while on a party.
