Cannabis May Improve Attention And Memory


Marijuana brain memory attentionCourtesy of The Joint Blog

A new study published and funded by the National Institute of Health has found that poor working memory and attention control is associated with a lower efficiency of the endocannabinoid system, indicating that cannabis could improve these functions as it activates and positively regulates this system.

“Our results suggest that.. a lower efficiency of the endocannabinoid system, probably due to a lowered expression of CB1R, produced a reduction in the performance of these subjects when attentional control and working memory processing is challenged.”

The study, which can be found by clicking here, was conducted by researchers at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.

  1. im from canada and we spell honour with a u, colour with a u, humour…..blah blah blah. the world does not just exist in your stinky little country (and mind)

  2. Lumber and oil are a few things the US drains from canada among others. the us couldnt touch canada back then and they would never be able to touch us now. why do you think the white house got its shade, not to mention we’ve got better weed up here because we dont have those murican cops. my case was dropped and i was in possession of an ounce(half powerplant half random outdoor), coffee grinder, pipe filled with weed, 50 small baggies, a vaporizer and my bong(man i miss that thing) but who knows, maybe it was because i wasnt a dick to the cops. Canada is better in so many ways other than the fact you guys have 2 officially legal states and 12 month summers in the south, up here in canada we have all 4 seasons. fall,winter,spring and construction and sometimes youll see 3 of those seasons within a 15 min timespan

  3. There are many English words that are spelled that way in other countries, same definitions just added or changed letters, like Gray and Grey, Tumor and Tumour….etc. etc in her defense although I don’t agree with you at all Carol, but I wont call you names. My daughter is dying of Brain cancer, and Modern Western Medicine failed her, she suffered horribly through chemotherapy just to end up with two new tumors and a death sentence, not everyone who reads these articles are “Stoners” as you call them. Some of us, are parents researching alternatives to keep our children alive and the safety of those alternatives. I don’t spoke Marijuana, but my child takes an oral cannabis medication and she is not a “Stoner” she is a patient. Please be considerate of the words you use to generalize people who use cannabis. We are NOT all the same. Thank you.

    Carol you skeez! Ya goof. Piss off ya hoser! This should improve US/Canadian relations, like the US needs canada for anything. In a crisis the US knows that Canada will save our ass NOT! But do not worry canada the US will protect you wimpy whining bitches and bastards when the shit hits the fan. Just keep that maple syrup flowing.

  6. You hurled the first stone when you referred to the humor as dumb and stoners, so you are the lowest firm of stupid, you must also be a christian because you are a hipocrite, plus you deleted your first ranting post. Please stay in canada and piss off aye. You have no sense of humor either. Cheech and Chong are my generations Larel and Hardy. Stoner is a disrespectful term by the way.

  7. Name calling is the lowest form of stupid. In my honours degree it is the Canadian spelling, neighbours!

    I’m guessing you misspelled her last name on purpose for effect. Genius! You are quite the cunning linguist.

  9. There once was bitch named Francy, That thought that her spelling was fancy, But her spelling was wrong, lost her job and before long, now she’s homeless and her pimp calls her Nancy

  10. You are a dumb stoner joke, bitch! You cannot even spell! Why don’t you do something like go read a book. May I suggest ” I stupid bitch named Carol” I believe you are the Author.

  11. Vincent Nibblin on

    I doubt someone as ignorant as you that cannot spell honors, received any at anytime in your brief education. By the way there is no u in honors. Carol there is a thing called spellcheck that helps people such as yourself that do not spell correctly. I suggest you use it in the future so that your lack of intelligence is not so obvious. I am sure the way you write matches the way you speak. “honours throughout university” ??? Please amuse me further with another misspelled moronic comeback you mental midget.

  12. Vincent Nibblin on

    Enough of the stoner is DUMB JOKES, please! Carol you can’t even spell correctly, I rest my case. I was just having a little fun. Fact is some people lose their motivation and skill set while others do even better at any task, I did just fine and pulled a 4.0 grade average throughout high school and college and pre med, I got baked every morning before school and college. No one is DEMONIZING here, chill! Okay!

  13. Demonizing! I too got honours throughout university even without perfect spelling. Cheech and Chong humour stereotypes stoners.
