With an all-out war on marijuana and its media status of a ‘gateway drug’, exposing the benefits of this herb is essential to its legalization. Government and media propaganda refuse to accept the proven benefits of marijuana both in its medical application and the effects it has on the recreational user.
However, thanks to science we can now move on from discussing subjective opinion and enter the realm of scientific facts. Researchers from the University of Texas recently published a study exploring the effects of long – term marijuana use on the brain.
The published research presented evidence against the claims that marijuana use lowers IQ, and demonstrated that this plant can actually help Alzheimer’s patients. One of the key conclusions from the Texas research is that frequent marijuana use actually improves the work of the brain in terms of its efficiency, and increases the brain structural connectivity.
