Cannabidiol (CBD) improves brain blood flow which could help improve memory, researchers have said.
The team from the University of College London (UCL) say these findings could potentially contribute to better treatments for conditions like Alzheimer’s disease and post-traumatic stress disorder.
CBD is an active ingredient in cannabis-derived from the hemp plant and has previously been associated with treating pain, insomnia, and anxiety.
