Cannabis Can Rescue Learning and Memory After a Traumatic Brain Injury, According to Study

A new study injurypublished in the journal Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology has found that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – something done naturally by cannabis – can rescue learning and memory after a traumatic brain injury.

For the study, researchers “tested the hypothesis that posttraumatic brain injury administration of a cannabinoid 1 receptor agonist can rescue deficits in learning and memory. Young adult male rats were subjected to a moderately severe controlled cortical impact brain injury, with a subset given postinjury i.p. injections of a cannabinoid receptor agonist.’

Utilizing novel object recognition and the morris water task, researchers found that “the brain-injured animals treated with the agonist showed a marked recovery.”

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Calgary’s Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute and Regeneration Unit in Neurobiology Core Facility, and the University of Hawai’i’s Department of Biology, can be found by clicking here.

    Ed, I have read about your accident and healing. I have been trying to figure out your birthdate but cannot find any info on internet regarding that. I suspect you were quite young when the accident happened; and 8 years later you experience amazing healing. I am curious, what is your full birthdate? Please respond to my email address josephine.hollerung@gmail.com . Thank you Mr. Ed Bland. Josephine

    First, I want to say THANK YOU to Ed Bland for sharing your story, and how cannabis has helped you after receiving extensive injuries. I have heard many such stories, albeit different circumstances, but having the same outcome. HEALING!
    Second, I also experienced different kinds of trauma’s and “minor” injuries over the years, like being in an ATV accident, and experienced pain in my neck/back for many months. I had trouble with my memory, like whole chunks of time was gone and I couldn’t remember what I’d done or where I was at certain times of the past. Through much prayer, and the use of cannabis, I am pain free, have regained my memory, and live on to be a healthy, active person!!! Now my whole family is involved in researching the great affects of cannabis, like curing cancer! We’re also learning about HEMP, the wondrous cousin plant of cannabis. I’d say… keys to the kingdom!

    I want everyone to understand something. I have not been trying to make GOLD for $$$$$$$, but to PROVE ‘GOD’ is real. I will make $$$ off of my agate, GEM, lapidary.
    ~ Is the story of my “life” so unbelievable that people think I am not real ? You bet it is, it took a year testing to PROVE it to myself !
    ~ I will try to explain again. Atoms make up molecules. There is less than 80 known ATOMS in the universe. Heat makes atoms create molecules.
    ~ Here is a good example of how “controlled” we are. On 08-30-2008 I wrecked my motor bike by SEALY LAKE, it still is the worst bike wreck in MONTANA with no helmet to live through to date. It killed me 3 times in life flight & was in an 87 day coma waking with a registered 5.5 brain injury requiring life to be relearned. Since returning home ( with next to no memory) I had a friend ask me to get a medical card & try “cannabis. I was amazed because it got my thought process working again & my memories started returning. Since then I have been trying to tell the media but have been blocked by the “investers”.
    So I meditated on how GOLD was formed, then have been in process of making some. I have turned yellow brass into 9k & red brass into 12k, bearing bronze into 17k. Working on pure now but still nobody believes even when it gets tested at the GOLD shop. All this is just to get the word out, “THC” HEALS BRAINS !
