Marijuana against Alzheimer?s disease?A rat study suggests chemicals in marijuana may slow the memory loss of Alzheimer’s disease, researchers say.
Added to signs that pot-smoking veterans of the 1960s and 1970s drug culture rarely develop the devastating condition, they add, the findings could point to new avenues for Alzheimer’s treatment.
“Inflammation in the brain is part of aging,” he said. “It happens to almost all of us... But in some cases, this inflammation gets out of hand and causes serious damage.”
Treatment with a synthetic compound similar to marijuana reduced in flammation in older rats and made them “smarter,” he added. “The compound substantially improved the memories of the older rats, [who] were able to hold on to key details of a specific task. Untreated older rats, on the other hand, were not.”
So cannabis prevents this devastating mental illness and makes you smarter when you are older. Happy days.
Must roll a J
maybe the people who are against de-criminalizing cannabis are getting too old and have early signs of mental illness already, its never too late to start!..
