Cannabinoids are easier on the brain than booze, study finds

But much remains unknown or unproved, such as whether marijuana has beneficial effects, CU Boulder professor observes Marijuana may not be as damaging to the brain as previously thought, according to new research from the University of Colorado Boulder and the CU Change Lab. The research, which was published in the journal Addiction, examined the brains of more than […]

Marijuana Compound Removes Toxic Alzheimer’s Protein from the brain

How does this Weed work in Your Brain? The science has new evidence that suggests that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) inhibits the formation of amyloid plaques, which causes neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. This health problem is caused by the formation of those proteins in the brain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), an active compound that is found in marijuana, promotes the removal […]

Many cases of “dementia” are actually side effects of prescription drugs or vaccines, according to research

(Natural News) The “quick facts” provided by the Alzheimer’s Association are pretty concerning: More than five million people in America are living with Alzheimer’s, and that number is projected to reach 16 million by the year 2050.

What Are the 7 Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease?

Every person with Alzheimer’s disease experiences the disease differently, but patients tend to experience a similar trajectory from the beginning of the illness to its merciful end. The precise number of stages is somewhat arbitrary. Some experts use a simple three-phase model (early, moderate and end), while others have found a granular breakdown to be […]

Marijuana Compound Removes Toxic Alzheimer’s Protein from the Brain

Scientists have new evidence that suggests that THC inhibits the formation of amyloid plaques by blocking the enzyme in the brain that produces them. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s are caused by the poor formation of those proteins in the brain. An active compound in marijuana called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has been found to promote the […]
