How Brain Spotting Utilizes Neuroplasticity for Trauma Healing With Cannabis Enhancement

Neuroplasticity is pivotal in the trauma healing process. It refers to the brain's remarkable adaptability and ability to reorganize and heal, especially in response to learning. It also happens naturally over time in response to injury.

Let’s take a look at how brain spotting harnesses neuroplasticity for trauma recovery and how cannabis can enhance this process.

Brain spotting is a treatment technique that utilizes neuroplasticity by focusing on specific eye positions to access and process traumatic memories stored in the midbrain.

Brain spotting taps into the brain's innate capacity for neuroplasticity, promoting the reprocessing of traumatic experiences and facilitating emotional healing, while bypassing the frontal cortex, or thinking brain. By identifying and focusing on eye positions correlated with emotional distress, individuals can release emotional blockages and achieve resolution, without having to discuss it in depth, or relive the traumatic experiences.

Cannabis, particularly compounds like THC and CBD, may enhance neuroplasticity and augment trauma healing. THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis, acts on the endocannabinoid system to promote synaptic plasticity, facilitating the formation of new neural connections.

CBD, another cannabinoid, exhibits neuroprotective properties and reduces inflammation, supporting the brain's natural ability to recover from trauma. CBG is also effective in reducing inflammation. When combined with brain spotting therapy, cannabis can amplify the therapeutic effects, promoting emotional processing and integration.

More research is needed to understand the effects of cannabis on neuroplasticity and its role in trauma treatment, however it appears very promising.  Work with a practitioner who is trauma informed and educated in cannabis for best results.

In summary, neuroplasticity is key to trauma healing.  Brain spotting harnesses this phenomenon to facilitate emotional recovery. Cannabis, with its potential to enhance neuroplasticity, may complement trauma therapy as well.
