[Marijuana Could Treat These 5 Conditions] In general, there is not much research on marijuana and its effects, said Gary Wenk, a professor of psychology, neurology and molecular virology at the Ohio State University. Marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act, meaning the drug is considered to have a high potential for abuse and no medical use. "There has been very little research, because there is a lack of funding," Wenk told Live Science.
"The National Institute on Drug Abuse does some research, but it's all related to treatment or determining ways it's harmful. But otherwise, it's hard to get funded, because it's a Schedule 1 drug." Despite the lack of research on marijuana's effects, an increasing number of Americans are using the drug. Currently, around one-fifth of Americans now live in states where marijuana is legal for adults to use recreationally, according to the Brookings Institution, and some 200 million live in places where it's legal to use the drug for medical reasons. Aside from being cautious, in recognition of what research there is on the effects of combining caffeine and marijuana, Wenk said that users are, to some extent, on their own. "When people ask, 'How will it affect me?' you have to ask, 'What are your genes? "Combining the drugs will have a different effect on different people, so it can be hard to predict." Coffee Pot: What Happens When You Mix Marijuana & Caffeine? You can now add coffee to the growing list of foods and drinks that are available as products infused with marijuana. Several companies have started selling cannabis-laced coffee, claiming to give users an added "buzz" to their cup of joe. But what happens when you combine two psychoactive substances: marijuana and caffeine?
The effects of using these two substances in combination have not been heavily researched, said Dr. Scott Krakower, the assistant unit chief of psychiatry at Zucker Hillside Hospital in New Hyde Park, New York. But using two drugs in combination can always potentially be a problem, he said. There is some evidence from lab and animal studies that suggests that taken together, caffeine and marijuana "would mix, neuro-chemically," Krakower told Live Science. In other words, they would have different effects when used together then you'd expect from looking at the effects that each compound has when used alone. For example, it appears that the combination of caffeine and THC (the compound in marijuana responsible for its psychoactive effects) may worsen a person's working memory, Krakower said. This is counterintuitive, as other research suggests that caffeine may contain cognitive-enhancing properties, he said. There seems to be some sort of compounding when the two chemicals are taken together that works against you, he said. There's also the issue of taking a stimulant (caffeine) and a depressant (marijuana) at the same time, he said. The combination of the two will likely make the user feel wired and tired at the same time, he said. But taking caffeine with marijuana would not cancel out the high induced by the drug, he noted. And it would be a mistake to think that someone could get high and then sober up, thanks to the caffeine, Krakower said. The potentially harmful cognitive effects of the combination are concerning, he said. Much more research is needed into the subject, however, Krakower added. [The Drug Talk: 7 New Tips for Today's Parents] With the legalization of marijuana in some states, edible products are growing in popularity. Some experts are concerned that these products may lead users to consume more THC than they intend to, because the onset of the drug's effects are slower when it is ingested as opposed to smoked — as they wait, users may eat more, to feel an effect. In addition, labels on products containing THC may not be accurate. In a 2015 study published in JAMA, researchers found that only 13 out of 75 edible marijuana products had labels that accurately listed the product's levels of THC.

Mango Skunk has a light to medium green color and typical indica fan leaves. One leaning more towards the sativa side, a tall and quite branchy plant. The other two phenos are quite similar, especially when it comes to their bud structure. These two phenos are clearly indica–dominant, with a short to medium stature. Branch structure does however vary between the two. A creamy, slightly fruity aroma with an earthy undertone.
The flavor has been clearly influenced by the sativa genes of both the Jack Herer and Skunk Special heritage with a luscious fruity, mango taste and a hint of cinnamon-like Haze.
The high, despite being an indica dominant strain, is clearly influenced by the sativa genes too with uplifting, activating, stimulating high that is long-lasting.
