There have been several academic discussions regarding the impacts of cannabis on memory. At Arbor Vita8, our goal is to bridge the gap between you and trustworthy hemp information. For the latest entry in our Journal Review series, we’ve uncovered an article from September of 2020 also on the subject!
“The goal of this study was to collect preliminary data on the acute effects of different THC:CBD ratios on memory testing.” This was done via straightforward cognitive “[tasks] under naturalistic conditions.” They were also sure to observe all legal parameters regarding THC and CBD in their respective state.
The Cognitive Impacts Of THC & CBD
Over thirty test subjects participated in the study. “They consumed cannabis of differing THC and CBD levels purchased from a dispensary. [They] were also assessed via blood draw and a verbal recognition memory test, both before (pretest), and after (posttest) ad libitum home administration in a mobile laboratory.”
The results were quite interesting. With more THC involved, the subject’s memory functions relaxed. On the other hand, CBD had no impact whatsoever in this regard. Strains with an even balance of THC and CBD also show no change here. You can read the article in full by clicking the hyperlink above.
