CBD promote the growth of brain cells...

....in rats.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is not only known to protects brain cells – but it also stimulates the growth of new brain cells, known as “neurogenesis.” These brain regions are densely populated with cannabinoid (CB1) receptors. Activation of CB1 receptors stimulates the creation of new neurons in embryonic and adult neurogenesis, according to a 2019 study by a team of Brazilian scientists.

“The pro-neurogeneic effects of CBD might explain some of the positive therapeutic features of CBD-based compounds,” German scientists reported in 2010. It’s worth noting that preclinical research shows that a low dose of CBD increases neurogenesis, but higher doses decrease neurogenesis.

What does this mean for humans? It's hard to say, but this early research is promising!
