According to a study published in The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, a compound found in cannabis known as cannabidiol (CBD) can actually help with brain growth.
Researchers were investigating the effects of CBD on treating depression and anxiety in rats. They went straight to the hippocampus, a part of the brain that deals with these mood disorders. The hippocampus is the area of the brain which regulates mood by controlling emotions and thought processes. It is the only area of the brain that can grow in adults.
Cannabis Leading to Brain Growth
The scientists discovered that CBD causes brain cells in the hippocampus to grow, which would support the explanation in previous studies that identified CBD as an effective treatment for depression, anxiety and stress. These mood disorders are attributed to a lack of brain growth in adults.
There is now hope in the understanding of how the brain reacts to CBD and other substances in marijuana. This opens up a whole new chapter to how we will treat mood disorders and psychiatric symptoms in the future.
