A new study published recently in the journal Neurochemistry International has found that a compound in cannabis can help grow brain cells.
“We tested three compounds: cannabidiol, cannabigerol, and cannabichromene (CBC), and found that CBC has positive effect on the cell viability of mouse NSPCs [adult neural stem progenitor cells] during differentiation in vitro“, states the study’s researchers.
The study, which was conducted by the Institute ofBiomolecular Chemistry and funded by a GW Pharmaceuticals grant, is one of several studies which has found that cannabis can stimulate brain growth.
Researchers conclude that; “Taken together, our results suggest that CBC raises the viability of NSPCs while inhibiting their differentiation into astroglia, possibly through up-regulation of ATP and adenosine signalling.”

MARINE CITY, Mich. (Detroit Free Press) -- A Canadian scuba diver on a late night swim got tangled up in a weedy mess: he was busted smuggling 8 pounds of marijuana into the United States in St. Clair River, Border Patrol announced today.
And the pot, which carried a street value of about $40,000, stayed dry.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. Monday when U.S. border agents were notified by the Saint Clair County Central Dispatch about a person swimming across the St. Clair River near Marine City. Dispatch had received a call from a citizen who spotted the swimmer.
Remote video surveillance cameras helped confirm the tip. A camera operator on Selfridge Air National Guard Base relayed to agents on the ground that the swimmer appeared to be towing a "dry bag" used by divers.
When the man in the scuba suit got out of the water near Marine City, Border Patrol agents arrested him. Then, they located a large, watertight PVC cylinder holding more than eight pounds of marijuana tied to a seawall ladder.
The swimmer has not yet been identified.
