Our new documentary on THC, grime, and mental health.
May 9, 2017, 2:29pm

As part of this year's Mental Health Awareness Week, we followed grime legend and Boy Better Know member Jammer on his personal journey to understand how skunk may be affecting the mental health of musicians in his scene.

In the film Jammer talks to his family and scientists about the difference between cannabis and skunk weed. He also meets with dealers, support workers and musicians to learn more about what kinds of therapy exist for people whose mental health problems have been exacerbated by skunk, how it affects making music, and whether or not those who sell it feel as though they could be selling weed instead.

This film is part of The Noisey Guide to Music and Mental Health. You can read more from this series right here. Watch it in full above.
