How can THC and anandamide induce neurotransmission of long term memory ?

Can THC activate consciousness through neurogenesis in the hippocampus
and processing/integration of conscious experience?

Cholinergic-monoaminergic neurotransmission affects cannabinoid-induced synaptogenesis: Implications for cognitive functions and long-term memory formation by endocannabinoids. Monoamine oxidase knock out may modulate cholinergic neurotransmission in the hippocampus through retrograde endocannabinoid signaling.

What is the role of serotonin signaling in neuronal morphogenesis?

Can THC-induced serotonergic neurotransmission modulate microtubules dynamics?

I am not sure if it is related to question, I read somewhere about the brain of a cannabis user having more grey matter areas and having a higher connectivity.

I believe serotonin is a key neurotransmitter in the modulation of consciousness. By upregulating serotonin levels in the brain, cannabis may increase brain connectivity.

I thought is was dopamine that was released that increased the adrenaline increasing the heart rate that then increases blood flow to the brain, the brain activity ''demanding'' a faster rate of connectivity?

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoamine_neurotransmitter

Monoaminergic neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin may regulates brain connectivity.

Thank you, a word I did not know, something new.

You're welcome.  ;)

I suggest you take a look at quantum brain dynamics of endocannabinoid-mediated retrograde signaling.

Vibrations in microtubules may increase synaptic exocytosis induced by endocannabinoid synthesis, a coherent quantum tunnelling effect.

On the possible quantum role of serotonin in consciousness.
PubMed: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26227538

"Hence, we postulate two possible new roles for serotonin: (1) as an antioxidant, in order to counter-balance the oxidative effect of FAs, and (2) to participate in quantum interactions with MTs, in the same way as anesthetics and psychoactive compounds have been recently shown to act."

Can THC-induced serotonergic neurotransmission have an impact on quantum vibrations of microtubules?

Is it possible to increase quantum fluctuation through intracellular CB1 receptor activation?

How many forms of neuronal exocytosis exists ?

  • synaptic exocytosis - neuromodulation of consciousness, Ca2+-triggered
  • somatic exocytosis - monoaminergic neurotransmission, Ca2+-triggered
  • endocrine exocytosis - Ca2+-triggered
  • postsynaptic exocytosis - activity-dependent (Ca2+) synaptic modulation
