Does Cannabis Heal The Brain After A Concussion? Hmm, #NeverStop smoking up, to #ConquerABI??

Cannabis has been shown to help with a lot of things, but it helps a brain heal after an injury??  Way cool!  

A concussion is a minor traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a blow to the skull. A person can also suffer deleterious effects from sub-concussions, which are repeated minor assaults to the head. These assaults can lead to a TBI. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to prevent damage from concussions before they occur? What about a way to speed up the healing process? Medical scientists point to cannabis as a potential solution. But, can the herb really heal a concussion?

Cannabis has shown a wealth of potential in traumatic brain injury. Unique properties of the herb may help the brain repair itself after trauma, including trauma from a concussion. Overall, there are three main characteristics that make cannabis a promising treatment for concussions and other forms of head trauma. These include:

1. Reduced brain inflammation

2. Neuroprotection

3. Pre-treatment with cannabis prevents damage
