Default Cannabis reverses ageing processes in the brain

Mouse brain, that is. And this is not a license to get high—doses used are decidedly sub-intoxicating.

But: it appears that endocannabinoid receptors may have a role in brain health, and that it may be vital.

That kind of explains part of why DH was having memory problems after he quit smoking pot.

Is there a sub-intoxicating dose these days? I can't even handle one hit of the weakest weed (9% THC) on offer at the weed store.

I took two drags from a joint when I was sixteen years old, my head was turning and I felt bubbles of feeling in my legs. I have never used it since. Now I know why I am gradually losing my short term memory, my sense of smell, my eye sight and my libido.
Should I start toking?

That explains why I feel mentally like a 16 year old while the rest of me feels like a broken down old fart.
