Patient Reported Positive Effects
Patient Reported Negative Effects
Mandarin Cookies has high amounts of THC which is responsible for a couple of side effects. When THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the submandibular glands it is able to prevent the formation of saliva. This will lead to dryness in the mouth, a symptom commonly referred to as cotton mouth. This can be relieved by constantly hydrating to prevent the mouth from excessively drying out. THC is also responsible for causing blood shot eyes. It does this by causing blood vessels in the eyes to expand hence increasing blood supply to the eyes. This is the same mechanism by which THC provides relief from glaucoma symptoms.
- Cotton Mouth
- Red Eyes
Hydrating in advance will help to reduce the anticholinergic effects caused by this strain. The red eyes are nothing to worry about. THC causes the capillaries in the eyes to dilate causing more blood to flow to the eyes. Expect this effect to wear out as soon as the THC is out of your system.
