New Study: Cannabis May Help Heal the Brain After Injury

A new study published in the journal Cerebral Cortex has found evidence that activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors may lead to neuroprotective benefits which can help heal the brain after a traumatic injury.

According to researchers for the study; “The results provided the first evidence for the involvement of ECS [endocannabinoid system] in the neuroprotective action of minocycline on brain edema, neurological impairment, diffuse axonal injury, and microglial activation, since all these effects were prevented by the CB1 and CB2 receptor antagonists.”

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”.
