Pretty interesting.  I wonder if there is any truth to it.  And it's interesting how I've heard that lemon and vanilla are the best additives and natural pairings for edible cannabis.

  Adulteration of cannabis with tobacco, calamus, and other cholinergic compounds

 

At least one compound in calamus root (beta-asarone) blocks acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Contrary to expectations, AChE blockade diminishes cannabimimetic effects.

 

 

This could potentially be a viable option for individuals who might benefit from the agonist properties of THC, but would prefer to mitigate the psychotropic effects.
