I've always heard "skunk" just referred to as any other type of pot.
There are strains of pot that are as strong, they just don't smell as skunky.
So if someone cannot handle strong pot, don't think it's less strong, being "not skunk".

It does smells more like a skunk, although, if you run over a skunk in your vehicle, you can tell the difference. Skunks are muskier than the pot skunk.
But you'll draw attention. You'll be telling everyone "I just ran over a skunk", for a month or so...

Because the compounds in skunk cannabis build up in the fatty tissue of the body, it can still be present in a user’s urine for nearly two months.

That goes for any pot. ⬆️

Bull. The army of medical studies show it to be one of the safest drugs known, factually. Ask a doctor, or even better an addiction medical specialist.

Don't know the effects of MJ because of lack of studies. Can't study it cause it is restricted. Perfect.

MJ raises the risk of getting schizophrenia and heart attacks according to a study. Although a Fed panel says it does ease chronic pain and may help people sleep. But all the other medical benefits are unproven.

Marijuana does raise the risk of getting schizophrenia and triggers heart attacks, according to the most significant study on the drug's effects to date.

A federal advisory panel admitted cannabis can almost certainly ease chronic pain, and might help some people sleep.

But it dismisses most of the drug's other supposedly 'medical benefits' as unproven.

Not enough research to say if MJ treats epilepsy. The report cast doubt about cancer treatment and treating Parkinson's.

Crucially, the researchers concluded there is not enough research to say whether marijuana effectively treats epilepsy - one of the most widely-recognized reasons for cannabis prescriptions.

The report also casts doubt on using cannabis to treat cancers, irritable bowel syndrome, or certain symptoms of Parkinson's disease, or helping people beat addictions.

Limited research, and there is are restrictions on studying this very dangerous drug. So the researchers have to jump through hoops to do research.

Several factors have limited research. While the federal government has approved some medicines containing ingredients found in marijuana, it still classifies marijuana as illegal and imposes restrictions on research. So scientists have to jump through bureaucratic hoops that some find daunting, the report said.

A federal focus on paying for studies of potential harms has also impeded research into possible health benefits, the report said. The range of marijuana products available for study has also been restricted, although the government is expanding the number of approved suppliers.

Let's first break down schizophrenia.
Firstly it's been found in people who have never done drugs at all. Ranging from an early to middle age.
I'll admit I was diagnosed back in 2009, they did find cannabis (low amount) in me and after the psych ward I was homeless and my job fired me for missing one day, they sent me to a 3 month rehab.

So maybe..Maybe the weed caused it, but when it started I was totally sober. And I don't just get voices, but random intense pain, narrarrated by voices. (Mind control tactic).

Also back in 2010-2011 I heard a high pitch voice keep repeating the phrase "reality is changing". Now we have the Mandela effect coincidentally.

I've had shared voice hearing experiences with non-diagnosed people as well. So I posit schizophrenia is more than just a subjective mental disorder, but either a mechanically disguised oppression, or higher beings messing with our heads.

I think preventing cannabis use will not change whether or not someone using or not will contract schizophrenia.

Aww come on. One of THE most common behaviors associated with mental illness is the patients' tendencies to self-medicate. Alcohol, tobacco, weed, you name it. They use these substances to alleviate their mental discomfort. They are symptoms of mental illness. Not the cause.

Maybe not "official " studies but there is a lot of independent research out there.

I feel that enough Mexican brick weed has been consumed by a large number of diverse adults in colleges and minimum-wage jobs in the past 50 years that any significant problem with it would have been discovered long ago.
