Activation Of Cannabinoid Receptors Can Combat Aids, According to Government Funded Study

A 2012 study funded by the National Institute of Health found that in addition to relieving the symptoms of AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors – something which cannabis does naturally – can actually combat its infection.

The study – which was conducted by researchers at George Mason University – found that; “the clinical use of CB2R agonists in the treatment of AIDS symptoms may also exert beneficial adjunctive antiviral effects against CXCR4-tropic viruses in late stages of HIV-1 infection.”

New Government Funded Study Finds THC Improves Sleep

A new study published by the American Journal of Addiction, and funded in part by the National Institute of Health has found that THC – one of the primary components of cannabis – is “significantly associated with shorter sleep latency”, as well as “less difficulty falling asleep”.

For the study, “Thirteen male chronic daily cannabis smokers were administered oral THC doses (20 mg) around-the-clock for 7 days (40–120 mg daily) starting the afternoon after admission.”

New Study: Cannabis Can Help Grow Brain Cells

A new study published recently in the journal Neurochemistry International has found that a compound in cannabis can help grow brain cells.

Cannabis Can Prevent Cancer Caused by Cigarette Use, According to New Study

A new study published by the journal J-Stage, and funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, has found that cannabinoids – whether THC, CBD or CBDV – were effective at blocking a certain enzyme which is known to cause cancer, and is produced in large amount when cigarettes are consumed.

“These results suggest that the pentylresorcinol structure in CBD may have structurally important roles in direct CYP1A1 inhibition, although the whole structure of CBD is required for overall inhibition”, according to researchers.

New Study Finds Cannabis Provides Relief From All Symptoms of Cancer

A new study published in the annual journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine has found that cannabis consumption leads to a “significant improvement” in “all cancer or anti-cancer treatment-related symptoms”.

According to researchers, “Cancer patients using cannabis report better influence from the plant extract than from synthetic products. However, almost all the research conducted to date has been performed with synthetic products”.
