Long term cannabis use may shrink hippocampus and thus IQ

Long-Term Cannabis Use May Shrink the Brain’s Hippocampus, Study Suggests | News | Analytical Cannabis

" Long-term cannabis use may detrimentally affect IQ, learning and processing speed, and even shrink the size of the brain’s hippocampus over time, according to a new study based on over four decades’ worth of cohort research."

“They found that long-term cannabis users had smaller overall hippocampal volumes compared to non-users, and smaller volumes in five of twelve subfields of the hippocampus, including the hippocampal-amygdala transition area. The long-term users also had smaller overall hippocampal volumes than the other midlife recreational cannabis users.”

I am trying to find out who funds this page, but the science looks good.

CBD has been found to possibly cause the hippocampus to regenerate. I just think it is interesting how one plant can harm and heal depending on how it is grown

It’s a drug, of course it’s going to affect the brain if you are constantly stoned. It doesn’t take a genius to come to that conclusion. Tell me about a street drug that doesn’t affect the brain? I’ll give you the Nobel prize if you do.

I am not for or against it really, I just thought it was an interesting insight.

It seems to me that most people escape themselves one way or another. It is hard for each drug user to look down upon another for their habit, be it cannabis, alcohol or ads.

Aps bring people to an authentic reality, all the others take it away.
