A little Pot to change the brain

Smoking Weed makes you stupid. This statement has impressed many parents of pubescent children in the long term. If it is true, was always controversial. A recent study in the Journal of Neuroscience seems to prove that even minor use of Cannabis alters the brain – and thus dangerous for the mental development might be.

neuro-researchers from Germany, the UK, Ireland and France have investigated 46 children at the age of 14 years, who had consumed only one to two Times a Cannabis. Modern brain scans were able to document these children, deviations from the brains of the same age who had no experience with Cannabis. The researchers conclude from this that the Try out for the thinking organ has consequences.

experts react behavior

"The results show that many areas of the brain in children who have only consumed one or two Time Cannabis, appear bigger," says Derek Hill, from University College London who was not involved in the study. The expert for imaging sees little reason for concern: "Something larger brains necessarily mean that an injury exists."

other experts, the study critically. "The information the young people to cannabis use are based on Self-report," says Eva Hoch of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich. To confirm "that only Cannabis has been used – and this is only a two – drug screening have been useful." Also information on the content and the dose of the consumed Cannabis were missing. Decisive for the effect of Cannabis content and ratio of anti-psychotic Cannabidiol (CBD) and the intoxicating Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

And finally, the current study leaves open the question of whether the observed deviations are due to the low consumption of Cannabis, or Vice versa. Although, the researchers examined in a second group of children, one of which you know today that you consumed an average of 15 years for the first time, Cannabis. The brains of these children prior to the first use of unobtrusive, and the researchers believe to be able to prove that the abnormalities were absent in the brain of the medium-13.8 years old, much younger first-time users in front of the consumer. A proof of this, however, is not.

in Addition, the study does not address the significant difference in age at first cannabis enjoyment, nor are they documented, whether the brain of the older young people changed by the consumer. It is then not excluded that particularly young first-time consumers are predestined by their brain structure and mental characteristics for the use of Cannabis, so simply have a penchant for Smoking Weed.

How dangerous it is and how nervous parents, therefore, need to be, if your child tried out early on drug , is on a different sheet. Some experts advise to speak as much as possible with the children about drugs and alcohol without being judged. You have to be reasonable although not mandatory – but certainly not stupid.
