New Results Show Low Daily Doses of Cannabis Could Actually Improve Memory

A low daily dose of the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis was shown to not only help old mice improve their memory, but to completely reverse loss of performance, a new study shows. The dose was too low to intoxicate the animals, but was long-lasting; however, it had the opposite effect in younger mice, according to Science Alert.

This probably comes as good news for Baby Boomers from the hippie generation of the ‘60s and early ‘70s, who were part of the pro-pot movement back then, when President Richard Nixon declared war on weed by persuading Congress to pass the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970, classifying the plant as a Schedule 1 drug.

Today, the majority of Americans support cannabis either as a medicine, for recreational use or both. Surveys show that at least 4 in 10 Americans have tried marijuana, while nearly 60 percent support full legalization. Doctors even support it, yet the federal government continues to keep both cannabis and CBD oil on the Schedule I list.

The medicinal good of medical marijuana has been proven. It’s high time to acknowledge the medicinal effects of marijuana, whether that be improved memory and a possible solution for age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s, or as a treatment for cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and Tourette's syndrome, as well as a host of other diseases. Legalizing it could also help control the opioid epidemic, as research shows medical marijuana lowers prescription drug use.
