Study: Ultra-Low Doses Of THC May Help Protect Against Neurodegenerative Diseases



'There is a great deal of evidence suggesting that cannabis could be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s. In fact, a Brazilian study published last year suggests that cannabidiol (CBD) could help ward off neuronal cell death in the face of neurodegradation.

In order to provide more insight on the topic of medical marijuana and neurodegenerative disease, a team of researchers from Tel-Aviv University in Israel published a study in the Journal of Neuroscience Research last month. Their results suggest that ultra-low doses of cannabinoids, and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in particular, can help protect against cognitive deficits that arise as a result of inflammation in the brain.'
