too surprisingly, then, an extremely characteristic effect of
marijuana is "I enjoy eating very much and eat a lot" (1%, 5%, 18%, 31%, 44%), which also occurs at
low intoxication levels (22%, 44%, 26%, 4%, 1%). Users of Psychedelics report this as occurring less
frequently than Non-users (p <.05).
As with other senses, sensory imagery is a common experience (15%, 15%, 37%, 17%, 16%): "If I try
to imagine what something tastes like, I can do so very vividly" occurs at Moderate minimal levels of
intoxication (11%, 31%, 29%, 11%, 1%), with Meditators reporting this less frequently than Ordinary
Users or the Therapy and Growth group (p <.05, overall). Users of Psychedelics and Meditators do not
have to be as intoxicated for this experience (p <.05 in each case).
The data confirm a popular belief that marijuana smokers like sweets: "I crave sweet things to eat,
things like chocolate, more than other foods" is a common effect (16%, 26%, 25%, 15%, 17%), which
occurs at Low levels of intoxication (11%, 41%, 23%, 5%, 0%). The Light and Heavy Total users peak

sharply at Fairly/Strongly on level of intoxication here, while the Moderate Total users are more variable
Components of Taste
A fairly frequent effect is "Tastes become divided into several components, instead of an overall taste.
E.g., a bite of bread may taste salty on one part of your tongue and sour on another part at the same
time" (43%, 15%, 25%, 11%, 5%). Although many (47 percent) users did not rate this for level, it is an
effect occurring at fairly strong levels (3%, 12%, 20%, 15%, 3%). It is interesting to raise the question
whether this is an actual perception of the several discrete tasting organs in the mouth functioning
separately instead of their usual blending together, or whether it is imagery added to taste sensations.
Miscellaneous Taste Phenomena
An infrequent phenomenon is "There is an exceptionally long time delay between starting to chew food
and the time the taste actually reaches my consciousness" (49%, 18%, 15%, 10%, 3%), which occurs at
Strong levels of intoxication (1%, 11%, 19%, 13%, 3%, noting that 55 percent did not rate this). This
delay is more frequent among Non-users of Psychedelics (p <.01). We may be dealing more with a time
phenomenon than a taste one here, perhaps a differential delay between "outside" sensory input (taste) and
internal feedback of what the body is doing (chewing).
Because it has frequently been noted that marijuana produces dryness of the mouth, the item "I salivate
quite a lot when stoned" was included in the questionnaire as a Validity Scale item. As it may be that
some users do indeed salivate a lot, however, the data on it are presented here for what they are worth to
future investigators. This effect is infrequent (44%, 30%, 13%, 5%, 5%) and rated at Moderate levels
(10%, 17%, 17%, 3%, 2%, with 51 percent not rating

cannabinoids, but most of these occur in very
small amounts and are not important to the
high. The cannabinoids found in greatest
quantity are THC, THCV, CBN, and CBC.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main
psychoactive (mind-bending) ingredient in
marijuana, and accounts for most of the high.
Actually THC is found in four or five variations
with slight differences in their chemical
structure. The variants have similar effects.
THC occurs in all varieties of cannabis, in
concentrations that vary from trace amounts to
about 95 percent of all the cannabinoids
