Medical marijuana is increasingly being considered to help those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), which would be beneficial for the 1.4 million Americans who suffer from TBI every year. Both anecdotal and scientific evidence suggest cannabis has neuroprotective benefits, and one study from The American Surgeon found patients who tested positive for THC in a sample of over 400 adults with TBI were associated with a higher rate of survival post-injury. This evidence has been supported with animal studies.
