Can Cannabis help prevent long-term damage from concussions?

As it relates to cannabis, many have given input and presented legislation for how it should be handled. Access and learning to regurgitate the opinions of others regarding cannabis is not the only discussion to have. Usage is still an issue for health, physician education and ultimately a decision for an individual to make.

As it relates to cannabis, many have given input and presented legislation for how it should be handled. Access and learning to regurgitate the opinions of others regarding cannabis is not the only discussion to have. Usage is still an issue for health, physician education and ultimately a decision for an individual to make. This process can begin within medical school when introducing the expansive neurotransmitter system, the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The absence of this in medical school is limiting for medical students and says much about the mindset and direction “the powers that be” want the medical field to drive in this arena.

Let’s back up and be clear. This presentation is not about cannabis itself, but a neurotransmitter system. Not having knowledge of ECS, the connection to dopamine activity as Depolarization-induced suppression of inhibition restricts a medical providers ability to assess how cannabis serves as a remedy for headaches, Chron’s Disease, joint inflammation, mental health issues, glaucoma or anything other symptom or ailment cannabis has been used to heal.

This nonexistent discussion in academia lends to increased long term governmental, and medical controls while limiting and personal choice. Studies have shown cannabis use does not increase forms of cancer we know tobacco does. While this studies have been done, the results have also been re-translated to imply the findings the government prefers. Research from the 70’s reported cannabis kills cancer cells.

A key way to ensure accurate information is given is for inclusion of one of the original forms of education, the bedside, from a medical provider. Medical schools should reconsider the stance on restrictive learning for ECS.
