BrainHealth Research advances understanding of differences in effects of cannabis use

Center for BrainHealth published findings underscoring differences between men and women’s craving or desire to consume cannabis when exposed to a specific situation. Examining differences in neural and subjective craving responses, and measuring the relative contributions of each as it relates to heavy cannabis use, they found that neural activity primarily underlies response to cannabis cues with no differences between male and female users. This is followed by subjective craving, where there are sex-related differences.
