"Only marijuana promotes neurogenesis" - Dr. Xia Zhang, Univ. of Saskatchewan
Neurogenesis is the birth of neurons (brain cells) in the brain, a process most active in pre-natal development but that continues throughout adulthood. Many of these neurons die at birth but a number of them survive and become functional and integrated into the brain tissue. A global research team from US, Canada and China led by Dr. Xia Zhang, Univ. of Saskatchewan, found that cannabinoids found in marijuana promote neurogenesis and produce anti-drepressant effects. Most drugs of abuse such as opiates, nicotine, alcohol, cocaine etc. suppress neurogenesis.
