CANNABIS OIL DOES NOT CAUSE MORPHOLOGICAL CHANGES IN THE BRAIN, TWO STUDIES FIND



The pair of researches have found evidence that using cannabis oil does not have extensive effects on brain structure.

Two new investigations dispute the long-standing myth that cannabis oil use leads to long-term changes in brain structure. Learn about the conclusions of the two new studies on marijuana effects on the brain below.

Cannabis oil and Brain Structure of Teens and Young Adults

In the first research, published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine compared 781 brain scans of non-cannabis users, irregular cannabis oil users (one to two times weekly), and frequent cannabis oil users (more than three times weekly). The study’s subjects were young people aged 14-22 years old.

Neuroimaging showed that the brains of those who did not use cannabis oil at all were similar to those who occasionally or frequently used marijuana.

“There were no significant differences by cannabis oil group in global or regional brain volumes, cortical thickness, or grey matter density, and no significant group by age interactions were found,” the researchers wrote. “Follow-up analyses showed that values of structural neuroimaging measures by cannabis oil group were similar across regions, and any differences among groups were likely of a small magnitude.”

“In aggregate, structural brain metrics were largely similar among adolescent and young adult cannabis oil users and non-users,” they concluded.

Effects of Long-Term Cannabis oil Use on the Brain

In the second research, researchers from the University of Colorado at Boulder reviewed whether long-term cannabis oil use elicited any morphological changes in the brain. They compared MRI scans in 28 marijuana users over the age of 60 who on average had used marijuana for 24 years, to those of matched controls.

In the study, published in the journal Psychiatry Research, the scientists looked to find whether marijuana use led to differences in total cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), grey matter, white matter, and cognitive performance.

While controlling for age, the researchers found that having regularly used marijuana for over two decades “does not have a widespread impact on overall cortical volumes.” They also found that there was no significant difference in cognitive performance across the two groups.

“This is in contradiction to the large, widespread effects of alcohol on cortical volumes that might be expected to negatively impact cognitive performance,” they added.

The findings are encouraging, especially since older adults are increasingly using marijuana.

“The prevailing research was able to explore cannabis oil use in a novel older adult population that has seen recent dramatic increases in cannabis oil use while controlling for likely confounding variables (e.g. alcohol use). The associates in this study were generally healthy and highly educated, and it is in this context that cannabis oil use showed limited effects on brain structural measures or cognitive performance,” the researchers concluded.

How to Buy or Make your own. The BEST way to get the oil is by making it yourself at home, but if you are not able to do this, you are free to order, but it would take anywhere from 7 to 28 Days to reach you, depending on your location and other factors.

Is Cannabis Oil an Effective Treatment for Psoriasis?

Share on PintertOvervieOverview Cannabis oil is now being used to treat pain and conditions such as Crohn’s disease, glaucoma, and nausea from chemotherapy. The proof is mounting that cannabis oil may additionally  be effective in treating everything from sclerosis and Parkinson’s unwellness to psychosis and post-traumatic stress disorder. But can cannabis be used to treat psoriasis? What is psoriasis? Psoriasis could be a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the fast build-up of skin cells. The new skin cells are generated so quickly that they reach the surface of the skin before they’re mature. This immature buildup on the surface of the skin forms restless raised patches of silvery scales. Parts of your body may additionally  become inflamed, and you may have redness, swelling, and discomfort. About fifteen per cent of individuals WHO have skin condition can develop rheumatoid arthritis. This condition causes painful swelling and stiffness of the joints. If left untreated, i

WHAT IS CANNABIS OIL?

Cannabis oil is a thick, sticky,  resinous  substance made up of a high concentration of  cannabinoids , such as THC and CBD, extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica). Cannabis oil is a cannabis based product  obtained by separating the resins from cannabis flowers  using a solvent extraction process . Cannabis oil can also be known as marijuana oil, weed oil, pot oil,  Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) , Full extract cannabis oil (FECO), honey oil, hash oil, dabs, shatter, or wax. Cannabis oil is the most potent of three main cannabis products, which are the actual cannabis flower (marijuana), resin (hashish), and oil (cannabis oil). Cannabis oil is the most concentrated form of the three main cannabis products. That is what makes cannabis oil the most potent. Cannabis Oil produced and sold by "dealers" can have many contaminants and lots of times have little or no THC in them. Most of the time cannabis oil available on the street should be avoided for med

Rick Simpson Oil for Arthritis

A Centuries-Long Remedy for Arthritis When Rick Simpsons oil is mentioned as a curative substance, its perceived benefits are very often limited to fighting cancer. However, hemp oil carries in it the cure to an unending list of maladies, major among which is Arthritis. When Rick Simpson,the leader of the Cannabis oil movement after whom the oil got named, started using the oil, he did not only cure his skin cancer. Simpson had been suffering Arthritis in his knees for years, and after starting to ingest the oil, he says that he lost the Arthritis completely. It is actually documented that marijuana extracts have been used for treating Arthritis ever since 2800 BC. Firstly, we need to clearly identify the disease. Arthritis is a disorder that affects the joints, which despite being more common among the elderly, can affect people of all ages. Today, more than 52 million people across North America suffer one of the two types of Arthritis. This disorder is characterized by joint
