The hippocampus is a major brain area, and plays a critical role in a variety of brain functions. It is most famous for its role in memory formation and cognition. Brain scans of patients suffering from depression or anxiety often show a smaller hippocampus, and successful treatment of depression is associated with the birth of new neurons (neurogenesis) in the hippocampus.
An animal study using mice found that repeated administration of CBD helps the hippocampus regenerate neurons, which is useful for treating anxiety and depression.
But we’re not mice, more studies are much needed.
