Cannabis Can Help Brain Heal After a Traumatic Brain Injury

Brain Injury Marijuana

A recently published study shows that marijuana helps protect and heal the brain when it has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute surveyed 446 TBI patients to determine this conclusion.

The findings conclude that there is a strong association between marijuana use and surviving a major brain trauma according to DIY Health Academy.  Following the results of this study, researchers may be prompted to conduct a clinical trial to further confirm these findings.

“Previous studies conducted by other researchers had found certain compounds in marijuana helped protect the brain in animals after a trauma,” said lead study author Dr. David Plurad.  “This study was one of the first in a clinical setting to specifically associate THC use as an independent predictor of survival after traumatic brain injury.”
