THC Has Recently Been Found To Promote The Removal Of A Toxic Protein In The Brain That Causes Alzheimers

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.”

Chocolate may prevent memory loss and Alzheimer's dementia

What is even more staggering is that many people view this potentially fatal decline as acceptable, in spite of the well documented nutritional and scientific studies showing that many memory lapses are not considered a normal part of aging and can be prevented by adopting healthy lifestyle practices at any age.
