Cannabis Use Can Cause Cognitive Impairments, Researchers Say
Dr. Adam D. Scioli, medical director and head of psychiatry at Caron Treatment Centers, commented on a new study on the impact of cannabis on the brain in the Healthline article entitled Cannabis Use Can Cause Cognitive Impairments, Researchers Say. He believes that "it doesn’t matter how you take cannabis because the long-term intoxicating and impairing effects are similar.”
“The findings confirm what we’ve discovered empirically through psychometric testing in adolescent and adult patients at Caron who struggle with cannabis use disorders. We see moderate to severe impairment in executive functioning that is consistent with the cognitive impairment documented in this study."
