How many times have you been told marijuana use kills brain cells.
Through out the US, public schools have been blasted with anti drug campaigns.
Campings that have in the most part been effective and accurate.
Just on huge flaw, claims of Pot smoking kills brain cells. This recent study shatters years of propaganda and false claims.
Alcohol use causes brain damage
Think of Gray Matter as the main processing unit in the brain.
Composed of neurons cells, forming a vastly interconnected network.
The mass or weight of gray matter is a good indication of neurons in the brain.
As a matter a fact, some scientist consider the weight of gray matter to be linked to intelligence.
Neural degeneration is the loss of functioning neurons, including death of neurons.
It is commonly associated with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimers. By measuring gray matter, scientist can detect brain damage by cell death.
Marijuana does not kill brain cells
Alcohol use showed large clusters of negative associations
Alcohol kills brain cells and reduces gray matter at moder, even with moderate use.
Larger clusters of dead neurons associated with higher alcohol consumption.
No associations were observed between structural measures and past 30-day cannabis use in adults or adolescents.
It cant get any clearer than this. There is no evidence of any neuron death after 30 days of use.
This study was conducted on adolescents ages 14-18 and adults 18-55.
Cannabis does not kill brain cells!
Another study, find that cannabis actually does the opposite, THC is neuron protective. THC has been found to have a brain boosting effect on the elderly. Making them sharper, more focused and improved memory.
The positive effects of CBD and THC on the brain are well known. May have already discovered relief for children suffering from epilepsy .
