Despite its potential uses as a natural medicine, many still hold misconceptions about its effects on cognitive function. For example, although some studies have found deficits in short-term memory among frequent users of marijuana, these findings have been challenged by other studies that show no such association between cannabis use and poor memory performance.
In one study, the researchers found that participants who used cannabis were more likely to perform better on memory tasks than non-users. The effect of cannabis on memory was more pronounced in people who used cannabis daily and had been using it for extended periods.
They found that the Cannabidiol (CBD) content of cannabis plants affected how well it helped with memory problems. In another study, they found that CBD improved performance on verbal learning and memory tasks.
West Virginia cannabis has been legalized but only for medical purposes. Marijuana is still a classified controlled substance in some US states which means it is against the law to possess, administer, or sell it.
