Questions: When does it help memory? What kinds of memories does it help? When does it harm memory? For whom does it hurt? How much weed? Is it all strains? Smoking vs edibles? Socially ingesting vs alone? What about when it’s with other substances? How long do effects last?
As you can see, there are many questions left before we really know what to make of this finding.
