Possible Damage
Hi,CS.It's true that each study's conclusion comes from the average of elements have been gatheredI.If the average
confirms the long term cognitive impairment after cann use then
it is entailed that the majority of cann users are impaired.So I take the greater possibility that i'm one of them.

As I said before I'm not obsessed with that if obsession means
to believe in something that does not exist.The fact is that I can see
myself-brain operating faulty in my everday activities such as more time to process a problem,analyze and compose it,memorize info.Those cogn problems make me have complex to communicate with other people and make new relationships.The studies I found only made me connect my problem with weed.I may did a false conection but the problem remains.

Healthy brain is indeed a great matter to me but to be honest
i do not put in action my belief (smoking since 16 and now 23).

Yes, i fail as a person if cognitive problem persists, even subtle ,but significant when I have to deal with intellectually higher
challenges then my potentiality is reduced and have to except
this which is something i cannot do.As result my choices in work (now i'm student ) and life are limited.

Obsession does not mean believing in something that does not exist --- that would be a delusion. Obsession is being excessively concerned, ruminating, about something which usually does exist, but spending more time thinking about it that is useful, repeatedly returning to a topic but fruitlessly. When the thinking becomes an evasion of reparative or preventative action, it isn't useful.
Then you make a good point -- you have been experiencing some problems, both, apparently, in terms of how efficiently you find you are thinking, and in relationships and communication with others. OK, those could have many causes, and one or several of those could respond excellently to proper assessment and treatment. And one of the great and enduring characteristics of us as humans, is our capacity to adapt, and to find different ways of doing things that need to be done. SO, surely what's needed is not premature conclusions and surrenders, but getting one or more proper full assessments of whatever, if anything, may be wrong, and seeing how effectively they can be put to right
