Summary

Over a ten-year period, we, and others have documented the brain and psychological harms associated with regular cannabis use.

We have now shown that these harms are not permanent, but can be restored.

However, the recovery process takes a long time.

This study will build on our extensive work to date and, for the first time, investigate whether a specific form of exercise will cause accelerated and beneficial changes in i) the brain and ii) the daily lives of heavy cannabis users.
