Daily Dose Of Cannabis May Protect And Heal The Brain From Effects Of Aging
Janet Burns


Despite your average Shaggy and Scooby-style stereotypes, researchers believe that cannabis could actually help to sharpen our minds later in life.

Researchers at the University of Bonn and Hebrew University have discovered that low, regular doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the main active ingredients or cannabinoids found in marijuana, may help to keep our brains from ‘slowing down’ as we get older. Published today in the journal Nature Medicine, the German study revealed that while younger mice suffered a performance drop under the influence of THC, the psychoactive chemical gave older mice a considerable performance boost, even putting them on par with younger mice who’d abstained.

To test the chemical’s effect on brains of different ages, researchers put mice that were two months, one year, and 18 months old on a daily regimen of THC over the course of a month. The mice were then tested on their abilities to recognize familiar objects, and to navigate a water maze in known and new configurations. .

As has been similarly observed with humans, younger animals excelled at the tests when ‘sober’ but tended to struggle significantly under the influence of THC. “Mature” and “old” mice, on the other hand, struggled with tasks as consistent with their brain ages at first, but saw a huge increase in performance with THC infusions that raised their skill level up to young-mouse (drug free) standards and continued for weeks afterward. Meanwhile, The Guardian reported, “None of the mice displayed the strange effects one might expect from doses of THC.”

Overall, the results seem to support researchers’ belief that the benefits for older mice are a result of stimulating the brain’s endocannabinoid system, a biochemical pathway in both mice and human that grows less active over time. The scientists noted, “Together, these results reveal a profound, long-lasting improvement of cognitive performance resulting from a low dose of THC treatment in mature and old animals.”

The team plans to explore the potential impact of THC on older human brains with a clinical trial later this year, being one of few to focus on more aged subjects so far. Previous research with mice by the Universities of Bonn and Mainz also suggested that the brain’s main cannabis receptor and neural pathways are closely related to brain health in later life, and seem to play a role in preventing brain degeneration when active.

Co-author Andras Bilkei-Gorzo told the Guardian, “If we can rejuvenate the brain so that everybody gets five to 10 more years without needing extra care then that is more than we could have imagined.”

Key word 'May'.

No matter what you do, you'll get old and die.  Cannabis just allows some deeper thought and a little a lazier about dealing with things that could kill you.

One of the few things we can do to keep our grey cells from dementia.Those of us that were smart enough to smoke weed since an early age, aren't suffering from the effects of dementia like all the others that thought weed was evil.The CBD rich Cannabis from the 60's was the perfect element to protect our brains from aging prematurely.R. Reagan with his stupid war on drugs, got dementia, because he didn't take any.Karma in action.

I don't think it's impossible for a stoner to not get some sort of brain damage.  The withdrawal of cannabis is complex.  There are a lot of bad ways to die.

There is no drug that doesn't have side effects.  Doctors don't really understand all the differences.

I'm not against cannabis but cannabis can be shockingly addictive.  Some people are too far gone to ever have a great reaction to these plants and fungi.

There are a lot of social complexities regarding these plants and fungi as well.  So being blatantly subversive doesn't cut the cake either.

Also Reagan did a lot of good keeping the Soviets back.  I don't believe domestic agenda is the main purpose of the commander in chief.  That is usually the states and congress and senate.  He just signs the bill usually.  That and speeches.

The prez can authorize any military action that is advised.

Kudos it was just plain old poetic justice that the drug that could have saved Reagan's sanity was demonized by him because of his prejudice.  :nyan:
