There are dozens of articles in the literature showing brain or neuro-protection of CBD. I believe there is no question that the data strongly suggests that CBD is both a protective agent as well as a healing agent.
I don’t know why it took so many years, but I finally saw my first brain injury patient where therapy with CBD made perfect sense. In addition, this particular patient has been treated for the past year for memory loss as a result of a car accident 15 months ago. She has had persistent memory loss that was her main issue. This was well recognized by her family and physicians as well as regular University Based memory therapy and testing.
This patient, of whom more will be revealed over time, has taken whole plant CBD for the past five weeks. She has had a major improvement already changing her life. Her family and physicians are aware of the change and she will be undergoing a full memory study in follow-up in a month or so. It will be great to have the objective data.
I am waiting for the day when all NFL players take a few mg of CBD before any practice or game. I bet we could show a difference in a short time and there would be zero risks – other than political.
