🔬demonstrates that more than ➕30% of concussion patients have symptoms for more than 4 weeks – this is known as ✴️“post-concussion syndrome”
✴️Post-Concussion Syndrome, is a set of symptoms that may continue for weeks, months, or a year or more after a concussion.⚠️
Symptoms such as noise sensitivity👂, problems with concentration and memory, irritability, #depression
, and #anxiety
may be called 'late symptoms' because they generally do not occur immediately after the #injury
🤕, but rather in the days or weeks after the injury. Nausea 🤢and drowsiness 😪commonly occur acutely following concussion. headache and dizziness 😵occur immediately after the injury, but also can be long lasting.
Management of Post-Concussion Syndrome typically involves treatments💊 addressing specific symptoms📑; for example, people can take pain relievers ☠️for headaches and medicine to relieve depression or insomnia😫. #Rest
🛏️is advised, but is only somewhat effective.
The potential benefits of #cannabis
🌱on post-concussion 🤕syndrome include neuroprotective effects, reduction📉 of long-term brain #injury
, and the restoration of neurobehavioral function.Studies show that the #cannabinoids
found in cannabis, specifically cannabidiol (#CBD
), activate the body’s cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2)🧠 present in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues (particularly immune cells), respectively, reducing pain and #muscle
spasticity. Studies also suggest 🔬a neuroprotective effect that comes from the cannabinoid’s activation of the 5-hydroxytriptamine 1A receptor.🧬
