MARIJUANA MIGHT HELP FIGHT ALZHEIMER’S

 
MARIJUANA MIGHT HELP FIGHT ALZHEIMER’S
Posted September 4th, 2014 @ 5:20pm

Researchers at the University of South Florida have reason to believe that marijuana could be the key in developing the most effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease in history.

That’s right … weed … the miracle drug.

It seems that very small doses of THC, the chemical in pot that gets you high, slows the production of a protein that leads to Alzheimer’s.

Low doses of THC were also found to strengthen organisms that supply energy to the brain and transmit signals.

 

Could marijuana actually make your brain stronger? So much for all that “killing braincells” right?
