CBD Gives Birth To New Neurons In the Brain

study published in The International Journal of Neurophamacology points to Cannabidiol (CBD) as a cause of Neurogenesis in the brain. Specifically, this birth of new neurons occurred in the Hippocampus, an area typically associated with conscious memory and navigation.

Neurogenesis is responsible for creating new neurons within the brain. These neurons process and carry information to the necessary destination.

Neurogenesis in adulthood was originally believed to be impossible, but studies have found it to occur, albeit in smaller proportions. There has been little knowledge about the importance of adult-born neurons, but more research has been performed as of recent. One common avenue of adult Neurogenesis research is its relation to stress.
