Concussion and Cannabis: Could CBD be used following brain injury?

More recently, however, this research has been shifting toward humans. A 2018 study reviewed previous hospital charts and displayed that medicinal cannabis may pose as an option for treating concussion-related chronic pain, specifically headaches (7). However, these novel findings are quite preliminary and more studies are needed to validate the results.

The therapeutic benefits of cannabis

Concussion patients are using CBD oil from hemp, which has virtually no THC, or marijuana products (vape, tincture, etc.) with various ratios of CBD and THC.

Some research focuses specifically on CBD (cannabidiol), which is the nonpsychoactive element of cannabis, and other research focuses on medical cannabis, with various ratios of CBD and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD is a nonpsychoactive cannabinoid, and THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid.

Overview

As reported in UHealth in July 2018, the “findings of a pre-clinical pilot study were recently released, and they show that the combination therapy improved the cognitive functions of animals, compared with those treated with a single vehicle. In addition, there were no adverse effects from either the combination therapy or the individual components.”

Health and Safety Guidelines: CBD can interact with other medications, especially blood thinners. Always talk to your doctor about your medication interactions before using CBD products. Concussion Alliance does not recommend the illegal use of cannabis or THC products. Check your state guidelines and talk to a medical professional before the use of these products.

The cannabinoid combination therapy is made up of CBD (Cannabidiol, an element of cannabis) and Dexanabinol (HU-211) which is synthetic cannabinoid which is an “anticonvulsant and neuroprotective, and is widely used in scientific research as well as currently being studied for applications such as treating head injury, stroke, or cancer.”
