While the precise mechanisms of cannabinoid interactions with the brain has been a focus of scientific investigation since the discovery of THC receptor sites in , the phenomenology of altered states of consciousness under the influence of cannabis has been extensively studied and its effects are well known to include: exuberance of spirits and emotional excitement; constant theorising and pronounced forgetfulness ; heightened sensory awareness; plus a distorted, or elongated, perception of time passing.

On the third attempt, at last they crossed the Rubicon: 'The first thing I noticed, within a few minutes of smoking, was the music; it was Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This music was not unfamiliar to me, as it was a favorite of my children, who constantly filled the house with the sound of the Beatles, the Grateful Dead and other popular rock bands of the time.
