Can CBD Oil Make You Smarter?

Posted on February 26, 2018

Would you believe me if I told you that CBD oil (and CBD edibles - yes even CBD gummies!) might make you smarter? Well, if you believe that, I’ve got some cake pops to sell you - because you may be right. If you don’t believe me, just ask some lab mice.

Here’s the story the mice will tell you:

A team of scientists from Germany, Switzerland, and Mexico began testing the effects of both THC and CBD oils on lab mice back in 2010. The title of the report that resulted from their study was, Cannabinoid receptor CB1 mediates baseline and activity-induced survival of new neurons in adult hippocampal neurogenesis.

Sounds like a real page-turner.

What it essentially means is that CBD helps the brain create new brain cells and connections, enhancing your ability to learn new stuff.

For six weeks, the mice in the study were given food with THC-rich or CBD-rich extracts. The mice that received THC became dumber and clumsier. The CBD mice, on the other hand, showed improvement in both motor skills and memory.

The researchers in the above-mentioned study concluded that “THC and CBD differed in their effects on spatial learning and adult neurogenesis. CBD did not impair learning but increased adult neurogenesis, whereas THC reduced learning without affecting adult neurogenesis.”

(*CBD mice cheering loudly*)

Amazingly, CBD seems to have the remarkable ability to promote the growth of brain cells. It has also been shown to keep the brain healthy and happy and treat conditions which can lead to disorders like dementia, epilepsy, and schizophrenia.

So there you have it. CBD cake pops (and all our other products) are good for your head. So don’t be a dope, grab yourself some Diamond CBD, and amaze your friends with your stunning mental abilities.
