Anything Less than Good

"If you are feeling anything less than good, 

it is always because you are addressing the lack of what you want. 

You separate yourself from Inner Being."

Scientists Discover Another Way Marijuana Helps The Brain Grow


Research shows for the first time that CBD, like THC, can promote the growth of brain cells.

Research shows for the first time that CBD, like THC, can promote the growth of brain cells.

In 2005, Canadian researchers made a groundbreaking discovery that would forever discredit the myth that marijuana causes brain damage. What they found was an opposite effect. That is, THC – the main chemical in marijuana and the reason why users get ‘high’ – can actually cause new brain cells to grow. 

The process of brain growth is called Neurogenesis and does not usually improve with drug use. Marijuana use is a different story, explained Xia Zhang, M.D, Ph.D., associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan and lead author of the study:
“Most ‘drugs of abuse’ suppress Neurogenesis. Only marijuana promotes Neurogenesis.”
Still, THC is not the only chemical found in marijuana and, eight years later, a team from Brazil is giving marijuana users more reason to celebrate. Their study, published in the July issue of The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, shows that Cannabidiol (CBD) can help your brain grow too. 

Looking to investigate the effects of CBD on anxiety and depression in rodents, the researchers went to the source – a part of the brain called the Hippocampus. The Hippocampus regulates emotion, memory, learning and cognitive function and is also the only area of the adult brain that can grow.

While previous studies have found CBD to have beneficial effects on anxiety and depression, the new study is the first to explain why.
What the scientists found was that CBD, just like THC, also causes brain cells in the Hippocampus to grow. This could explain why previous studies identified CBD as an effective treatment for mood disorders.
“Our results indicate that chronic CBD administration, by promoting Neurogenesis, favors a similar anxiolytic response in stressed mice.”
Likewise, other studies have linked depression, anxiety and stress – and even problems with learning and memory – to a lack of adult Nneurogenesis. Although this can be brought on by frequent substance use (expect for marijuana), neurogenesis also slows down naturally as you age.
But now there is hope, says the team from Brazil. A new understanding of how the brain reacts to CBD, along with other compounds in marijuana, “opens the door for their use to manage psychiatric symptoms in disorders such as ageing, stress and neuroinflammation.” 

The study was led by Ismael Galve-Roperh of the Centro de Investigacion Biomedica en Red sobre Enfermedades Neurodegenerativas (CIBERNED), Instituto de Universitario de Investigacion en Neuroquımica (IUIN) and Instituto Ramon y Cajal de Investigacion Sanitaria (IRYCIS)

"Thinking Out Loud" - Ed Sheeran

When your legs don't work like they used to before

And I can't sweep you off of your feet

Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?

Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70

And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23

And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe just the touch of a hand

Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day

And I just wanna tell you I am

So, honey, now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Place your head on my beating heart

I'm thinking out loud

Maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades

And the crowds don't remember my name

When my hands don't play the strings the same way (mmm...)

I know you will still love me the same

'Cause, honey, your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen

And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory

I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe it's all part of a plan

Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes

Hoping that you'll understand

That, baby, now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Place your head on my beating heart

Thinking out loud

Maybe we found love right where we are (oh, oh)

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, lo-ud

So, baby, now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart

I'm thinking out loud

But maybe we found love right where we are

Oh, baby, we found love right where we are

And we found love right where we are

Clarity

You're not off your path,

You're on your path.


You're not lost,

You're finding your way.


You're not confused,

You're gaining clarity.

Just think what a love like that can do. 
It lights up the whole world."
