I'm not trying to follow the research of cannabis benefits but I keep running into amazing headlines and I ESPECIALLY take notice when it has to do with Anti-aging nature cures or medicine.
Howdy folks and greetings from the Great Plains of North Texas!
Yesterday I saw an article on some fascinating research being conducted in Germany by a man who used work with the National Institutes of Health here in the U.S. but now is one of Germany’s top neuroscientists, Andreas Zimmer.
What he did is take old mice who had deteriorated mentally and memory wise, and gave them a small amount of THC, which is the compound in weed that makes you high. They put implants in their bodies which release it periodically in small doses.
Well guess what?
The old mice are now running around with 2 month old mice, just as active, AND they've RECOVERED their memories and can now compete with the younger mice. In fact, Mr. Zimmer says you can't tell them apart!
The old stoner mice even relearned how to get out of mazes that they'd forgotten how to do as they got older. This is very exciting news for possible treatments for Alzheimer's and dementia in humans.
Dr. Zimmer says..“The effects are extremely robust and easy to see,” says Zimmer. “It works reliably on every measure of cognition we have for mice.” source
How it works
Well, I can't go into detail because I have no idea exactly how if works but basically THC has the ability to untangle the tangled up mess of brain neurons and plaques that build up in Alzheimer's.
So this is just one more of the incredible medical benefits and treatments coming from the amazing cannabis plant. And many more are coming because research is just getting started in earnest because of legalization.
Nineteen of the 27 countries in the European Union have legalized it so it won't be long before they all have. They'll probably beat the U.S. on that front.
I'm sure the medical advancements in medicine in the next ten years will blow peoples minds. Especially with the help of quantum computers.
And as for cannabis, they know it will help cancer, Crohn’s, epilepsy, glaucoma, nausea, pain, PTSD, and many more conditions and now most likely, Alzheimer's.
Thanks for reading folks, God bless you all!
