Description: Cannabis is known for its ability to reduce inflammation, which is beneficial to many different disorders, including stroke. What we know less about, are the safe ranges of cannabis that promote this inflammation reduction without causing other side effects. In an elegant series of studies, this project will help us understand safe dosages of certain cannabinoids and see if inflammation following stroke is reduced within that safe dose range.
