Study: Female Hormones May Counter THC’s Effect on Cognition

Experiments done on adult female rats by Louisiana State University have shown that the estrogen produced by ovaries slightly counters the effects that THC has on memory and learning ability. Moreover there has been no research conducted on exposure to THC during the rodent equivalent of adolescence.

In the most recent tests, six female rats with ovaries intact and six female rats with ovaries removed were all exposed to THC during their so-called “adolescent” period, and were trained to perform tasks for food. Upon reaching adulthood, the rats were again exposed to THC and given a test. For comparison, 12 rats (six with ovaries, six without) were given the same tests, but were only exposed to THC during adulthood.

The results showed that the rats exposed to THC during adolescence performed more poorly on their tests overall; with or without ovaries. Although this particular study excluded male rats, it’s yet another insight into the world or the effects of THC.

Don’t let the Partnership for a Drug Free America get their hands on this, it would just be adding fuel to the fire.
