In brief: Possibly.

It is difficult to be certain, since Marijuana comes in so many strains, so many p;urities.
But at a metabolic level, at a neurotransmitter level, at an experiential level, it is certianly a possibility. Sound advice: no marijuana when you are taking other psychoactive medicines for treatment. Besides, they will probably work better (though you won't get high).
