Cannabis may prevent long-term brain damage

According to the Brain Injury Association of America, each year an estimated 2.5 million people in the United States sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI), and another 795,000 individuals sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) from nontraumatic causes. TBIs can affect the functionality of the brain—affecting thinking, reasoning, and memory. TBIs can have a major impact on individuals and their families.

Cannabis may prevent long-term brain damage by administering THC before or shortly after the injury.
