Cannabinoids Remove Plaque-Forming Alzheimer's Proteins From Brain Cells


Recommended Posts

Salk Institute scientists have found preliminary evidence that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other compounds found in marijuana can promote the cellular removal of amyloid beta, a toxic protein associated with Alzheimer's disease.
While these exploratory studies were conducted in neurons grown in the laboratory, they may offer insight into the role of inflammation in Alzheimer's disease and could provide clues to developing novel therapeutics for the disorder.
"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," says Salk Professor David Schubert, the senior author of the paper.

Peeps need to know if the amount of amyloids removed is greater by any one mode of cannabis use than another/  Such info FROM researchers may be years away, so we are left to guess.  i am going to guess that ingestion thru eating buds raw, like salad, will be found more effective, since that's what israeli reseachers found is true in the case of stroke reduction.

Dr. William Courtney says there's more benefit to raw cannabis too.



After attending the lecture mentioned in the article below, I'm thinking we're going to have to make raw CBD a major part of our diet. Here's a link to the Power Point (as a pdf) Renee Richer lectured from. http://greendrinksforschools.info/CannabisLinks/reneerichter.pdf
