Study shows that the THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer’s disease

THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer’s
 Yes, you read that right. The chemical known as THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer's disease. Scientist discovered that tetrahydrocannabinol or THC as short, helps remove harmful amounts amyloid beta protein from the brain, which is what causes alzheimer's. This discovery was the result of previous studies testing the protective effects of cannabis on patients with neurodegenerative disease.
Here is what David Schubert a scientist from a biological studies institute in California had to say:

 "Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer's, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells,"

  Actually  it isn't really all that shocking that the THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer’s disease, because not to long ago it was discovered the cannabis consumption can help shrink tumors. It seems like a lot of these scientist and doctors want to know more and more about using cannabis. Many states are legalizing medical marijuana to make it available for people with diseases. So far a lot has been discovered about the true health benefits of this magic plant. So honestly hearing that the THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer’s disease, it didn't really surprise me. We know about all the good things it can do, but I believe it's so much more that we don't know about.

 In case you don't know THC is the main chemical in marijuana and is what causes the high. When you smoke marijuana what happens is the chemical passes the lungs and goes to your bloodstream. Then it sticks to two receptors, cannabinoid receptor (CB) 1 and 2, which are found all over the body. In the brain these these receptors are associated with pleasure, memory, coordination and thinking. So if you parent says to you "stop smoking that darn plant!" tell them that The Cannabis Wiki said that THC in marijuana can prevent alzheimer’s disease, so it's okay.
