Fighting the Holiday Blues with Cannabis
Cannabis has an overall healthier effect on the brain. As it is possible for cannabis to change the neurochemistry of the brain, it also has a positive influence on neuroplasticity. As the word indicates, neuroplasticity is the ability to optimize and change neural networks in the brain. CBD can slow the decrease of hippocampal neuro cell production down. Chronic stress decreases the density of the synaptic input-receiving dendrite spines (storing sites for synaptic strength responsible for transmitting electric signals to the neuron´s cell body). CBD reduces the effect and creates a healthier neural environment.
