Cannabis Treatment for Stroke And Head Trauma

Did you hit your head hard on something? You might be worried that it can cause damage to your brain. A person’s brain is protected with its skull but it doesn’t mean that your brain is invisible to damages. Too much impact on your head can cause brain damage. Commonly known as head trauma, the leading causes of it include:

  • Motor vehicle related injuries
  • Assaults
  • Falls

When a head trauma happens, there may be bleeding in the brain that can irritate the brain’s tissue. This bleeding also decreases the blood flow to the brain because there is a blood leakage due to the torn blood vessel. Your brain may experience swelling, putting too much pressure on it. This brain bruises may take time to heal.

  • Hemorrhagic stroke
  • Ischemic stroke

Experiencing these strokes is due to your brain’s excessive bleeding and clotting problems. This is because after a head trauma, your body has increase chance of forming blood clots. The changes in blood clotting after a head trauma are irregular and unpredictable increasing your chance of having either hemorrhagic stroke or ischemic stroke.

Mild head trauma usually no longer need medications aside proper rest and a few pain relievers. However, if you have traumatic brain injury caused by stroke and you experience persistent headache that worsens after some time, then you need to be checked by your doctor thoroughly.

Treating TBI includes prescription medications and even surgery. However, a new medication has becoming popular today which involves CBD treatment for TBI.
