This according to The Jerusalem Post.</p> <p>&ldquo;Previous studies have shown that medical cannabis can have long-term effects on the brain when consumed at a young age, but this is not necessarily the same effect when consumed in old age,&rdquo; said Dr. Sharon Sznitman and Dr. Galit Weinstein, two of the study researchers.</p> <p>125 subjects with an average age of 62 years were involved in the study. 63 of the subjects were licensed medical cannabis patients, while 62 were not. A series of computerized tests to evaluate psychomotor responses, concentration, memory, and learning abilities were used to measure cognitive function.</p> <p>&quot;Our research findings may reduce concerns among physicians who deal with chronic pain and among patients suffering from it regarding the possible effects of cannabis on brain function,&quot; the researchers added.</p> <p>https://www.jpost.com/health-science/study-finds-medical-cannabis-does-not-cause-cognitive-decline-in-seniors-645458</p> <p><br /> Last up: In a win for the intersection of the Millennial Hipster and cannabis beverage aficionado communities, Pabst Blue Ribbon has announced the launch of its cannabis-infused seltzer line.
