Can Medical Cannabis Fuel Brain Cell Growth? How?


Medical marijuana is now legally used to treat a host of different medical conditions, ranging from mild anxiety to full-blown Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD.) However, new research points to yet another benefit of medical cannabis.

Yes, here’s another reason to find a fast and reliable medical marijuana delivery service, and one more way nature has made marijuana the world’s most perfect plant.

The cannabinoids in marijuana promote new brain cell growth, and it has been confirmed in study after study. Ironically, the finding is just the opposite of what people believe about marijuana – that it kills your brain cells. Surprise! Medical marijuana has been found to cause neurogenesis, the stimulation of new brain cell growth; the fact that most prescription and street drugs suppress neurogenesis, is no surprise.

We’ve known since 2005 that a concentrated form of the synthetic cannabinoid HU-210 promotes the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus, the region of the brain that processes learning and memory, as well as anxiety and depression. Now, other studies are pointing to these same neurogenic effects in both CBD and CBC, two important healing cannabinoids of marijuana.

Here at Green Door West, the premiere medical marijuana delivery service in Los Angeles, we have always known that brain cell growth encouraged by medical marijuana balances the ill-effects of smoking it, and that smoking is the only method of ingestion that kills brain cells.

When you’re looking for Beverly Hills marijuana delivery, or Santa Monica marijuana delivery, you’ll find the finest top-shelf flower strains, as well as potent edibles, topical creams, and marijuana concentrates – which are discretely delivered right to your door.

The laws surrounding California’s recent recreational marijuana proposition will not go into effect until early 2018, and you still need a medical marijuana card to buy, grow, or possess weed in California until then. So the next time someone tells you to “grow a brain,” have your trusty medical marijuana delivery service bring over some brain cell fuel immediately.


Delivery Regulations – Most Lenient States with Cannabis Delivery

If you are looking to get your marijuana delivered to your doorstep, you might have to jump through a couple of hoops and wait for new laws to be developed. The majority of states have banned the delivery of recreational marijuana, and only a select few states allow the delivery of medical marijuana. You can also ask the staff at your local dispensary, like the people at Green Door West, if they allow for medical marijuana delivery or when that might be possible. Here are a couple of examples to show you what you can likely expect in your area.



On paper, Alaska looks to have the most relaxed laws on marijuana delivery. However, if you look closely, you will see that it is due to the number if outposts the state has. Most supplies, including food, must be delivered to outposts on a regular basis (weather permitting) for customers to pick up.


Los Angeles alone has more than 500 dispensaries in it. Which is why California has left the laws on marijuana delivery up to each city/county to determine for themselves. You’ll have to check with your local government to see what the regulations are or speak to a staff member at a dispensary.

Colorado, Illinois and Nevada

All three of these states have made it illegal for anyone other than the primary caregiver to delivery medical marijuana to patients. Anyone found delivering marijuana in a for-profit situation will face the full force of the law.


Oregon passed Measure 91, which made it possible for certified retailers to make deliveries to patrons who have legal documentation to have medical marijuana on the premises prior to delivery. This might allow for customers to eventually place long standing orders with the help of their physicians as well as letting recreational users’ text or call in for deliveries in the future.


Washington used to allow the delivery of marijuana. However, a recent change to the laws managing the use of marijuana has made it completely illegal. Washington residents are going to have visit a dispensary to obtain their marijuana.


Visiting the dentist – There’s no reason to be scared

            A fear of going to the dentist is a common problem faced by both adults and children alike. It is however really important to overcome these fears as poor oral hygiene combined with irregular on no check-ups at all can lead to serious problems like tooth decay, gum disease, loss of teeth and even more serious conditions such as cancer of the mouth. Also known as odontophobia or dentophobia, which are mainly due to anxiety, certain steps can be taken to make going to the dentist a less stressful time.


            What usually begins in childhood, fear of the dentist can be addressed in children using a number of different methods. The first is to start taking your child to the dentist as early as you can. The first trip is needed at about one year old. Children generally are born without fear so the more relaxed the experience is for them the better. Secondly, why not try doing some kind of role-play exercise with your child before they go. You can pretend you are the dentist and let your child lie back in a comfortable chair and ask them to open wide. Try to avoid putting anything in their mouths at this stage and just explain you are going to have a look how big their teeth are getting. Finally, it will help your child if you yourself can remain calm when they visit the dentist. Your emotions will rub off on them and they will sense your own anxiety which in turn reflects on them. Prepare yourself for some of the usual shenanigans young children act out when they are reluctant to do something.

With adults the fear may seem a little illogical, it is however still very common. There are a number of techniques you can use to overcome your fear, the first being relaxation. Try taking slow, deep breaths and thinking of something pleasant like a recent good experience. You can even try muscle relaxation techniques. Another would be some kind of distraction, typically audio, by listening to music through your smartphone. If alternative medicine is your thing then acupuncture has been used for relaxation purposes for centuries. This is still a relatively new approach in dentistry though.

Navan – A gem of a destination

In the North East of Ireland lays the little town of Navan, well I say little it’s actually the fifth biggest town in Ireland and has the tenth largest urban settlement in Ireland, with a population of about 28,600. Navan is the main town in the County Meath and is known as the “Heritage Capitol of Ireland”.
