Study: Cannabinoids May Help Treat Traumatic Brain Injury

Cannabinoids may provide a potential treatment option for traumatic brain injury, according to new research.

The study was published in the latest issue of the journal Frontiers in Pharmacology, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health.

“The endogenous cannabinoid (endocannabinoid) system regulates a diverse array of physiological processes and unsurprisingly possesses considerable potential targets for the potential treatment of numerous disease states, including two receptors (i.e., CB1 and CB2 receptors) and enzymes regulating their endogenous ligands N-arachidonoylethanolamine (anandamide) and 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG)”, states the study’s abstract.
