Just in time for 4/20, the guy who invented Blue Moon is bringing us non-alcoholic, THC-infused craft beer.
According to IndyStar, Indiana Attorney General (AG) Curtis Hill declared that cannabidiol (CBD) oil is illegal to sell or own in the state, following a great a deal of confusion about CBD’s legal status that included raids of grocery stores and the arrest of a man with CBD oil in his car, as well as a bill signed by Gov. Eric Holcolm that created a registry for epileptic patients who choose to use CBD oil to combat seizures.
An active compound found in the cannabis plant called tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC, has recently been found to promote the removal of toxic clumps of amyloid beta protein in the brain, which are thought to be precursors to Alzheimer’s disease.
These findings support the results of previous studies, which found evidence of the protective effects of cannabinoids, including THC, on patients with the neurodegenerative disease.
According to senior paper author David Schubert, of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California, “Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells.”
What Exactly Is Alzheimer’s Disease?
