CBD linked to increased blood flow to memory-related brain regions

CBD News Aggregator – Cannabidiol appeared to increase cerebral blood flow to brain regions involved in memory processing, according to results of an MRI study published in Journal of Psychopharmacology.

“The proposed effects of CBD on regional [cerebral blood flow] in humans have been disputed,” Michael A. P. Bloomfield, of the Institute of Mental Health at University College London, and colleagues wrote. “Previous studies have directly measured CBD-related changes in regional [cerebral blood flow] using SPECT, an imaging modality with relatively low resolution to investigate regional effects. Additionally, no study has investigated the association between regional [cerebral blood flow] and memory task performance under acute CBD.”
