Cannabis with higher levels of THC and lower or negligible amounts of CBD has been linked to short-term memory impairment, particularly in adolescents. Research on memory is becoming increasingly important due to the prevalence of age-related memory loss. Previous studies have suggested that cannabidiol (CBD) may improve the memory of those suffering from neurodegenerative diseases. However, the effect of CBD on the memory of young people has not been extensively studied.
Recent research has shown that CBD does not improve the short-term memory of young men. This finding contradicts the known knowledge of how CBD could potentially be used for memory loss. The results suggest that exposure to CBD may cause short-term memory impairment and erratic behavior in young organisms. These results could be a starting point for future studies on the effect that CBD can have on young humans.
While THC may have a reputation for causing memory loss, recent studies have revealed that CBD could have the opposite effect. It is a non-intoxicating substance that can improve the consolidation of memory retention.
