In this one-hour module, you will learn about Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI’s) and how research is showing that medical marijuana can have a positive effect on brain injuries.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), a form of acquired brain injury, occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue, as well as environmental damage, such as chemicals and disease.
Did you know that men were nearly three times as likely to die from TBI’s as women? Do you know the leading causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries? Do you know why medical marijuana helps alleviate the swelling associated with Traumatic Brain Injuries?
The online education course, begins with a video from world renowned and respected researcher, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, who discovered THC in 1964. In an interview with Medical Marijuana 411, he discusses his findings concerning the CB1 and CB2 receptors and how they interact with our own physical chemistry. He discusses why those receptors are critical in healing and how each of the receptors perform in regard to healing. He talks about how cannabis works within your body and brain to provide relief from TBI symptoms.
Other subjects include: scientific research about the cannabis plant, and an overview of The Entourage Effect. Recent news about the NFL, and the increase of Traumatic Brain Injuries of NFL players are also part of the course.
Additional research, definitions and statistics related to Traumatic Brain Injuries will also be presented.
Downloadable content, infographics on the Endocannabinoid System and two different scans of brain trauma are also included in the course.
