Daily dose of cannabis extract could reverse brain's decline in old age?

Researchers have come up with an unusual proposal to slow, or even reverse, the cognitive decline that comes with old age: small, daily doses of cannabis extract.

The idea emerged from tests on mice which found that regular, low doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis – impaired memory and learning in young animals, but boosted the performance of old ones.

The discovery has raised hopes for a treatment that improves brain function in old age without inducing the behavioural effects well known to recreational users of the drug. To investigate whether it works in humans, the scientists plan to launch a clinical trial later this year.

“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,” said Andras Bilkei-Gorzo at the University of Bonn.

I listened to radio 5's phone in about Cannabis liquid. (last week, I think) Just couldn't believe the results achieved by using this, especially with cancer patients. I mentioned this programme to Spurs on his thread about his brother.

Re: Daily dose of cannabis extract could reverse brain's decline in old age, study su

I am not a supporter of smoking drugs , but a friend with a debilitating condition similar to MS , a fine upstanding member of the community imho who is a user of cannabis.

He says that it relieves his condition , reduces stress caused by his condition and allows him to relax and get some sleep.

I just wish that the relevant authorities would sponsor medicinal research into one of natures plants that so many are helped by.

How could i not support his usage of an illegal substance.

I just wish he did not have to smoke it to get relief.

You do not have to smoke it. You can even put it in biscuit mix, but they are fattening.

Apparently smoking cannabis is the fastest way of getting relief and of course you do not need to keep it in your house or on your person for long , therefore reducing your exposure to the old bill.

Apparently you can get them off the dinner lady too!

First use of cannabis for me was via small cakes that a friends Mother had made. She was born in Jamaica & to her cannabis was the remedy for most aches and pains, her occupation all those years back? A Birmingham probation officer.
