CBD Reverses Negative Impacts of THC, Boosts Blood Flow to Brain Memory Centres, Hippocampus
#CBD #cannabis #THC #fmri #neuroscience
In this clip we review a recent August 2020 publication assessing the acute effects of CBD on regional cerebral blood flow in the human brain that suggests CBD boosts hippocampus blood flow, and link these results with related results published in early 2019 demonstrating that CBD can reverse the long-term negative impacts of high-THC cannabis exposure on hippocampal volume deficits. We also briefly discuss David Blaine in the context of hippocampus hypoxia.
