Marijuana May Prevent Memory Loss by Reducing Brain Inflammation

See also

Researchers at Ohio State University found certain components of marijuana to be beneficial for the aging brain, as they were proven to reduce brain inflammation and regenerate dead brain cells. Such information may come as an astounding fact to many, as it is the complete opposite of what we have been taught in regards to marijuana’s effect on the brain. The common notion that marijuana impairs memory function and kills brain cells is turning out to be quite contradictory to the truth, meaning public schools and organizations we trusted to help us were, in reality, harming us by robbing us of a truth that could save our lives in the future.

This research would be an especially exciting breakthrough for those affected by Alzheimer’s, as Alzheimer’s is thought to be the result of a chronically inflamed brain, if the government miraculously woke up and ceased to deny human beings of their rights to healthy lives by nationally legalizing marijuana. Furthermore, this research offers a potentially major breakthrough for those with late stage neurological Lyme disease (neuroborreliosis), as a vast majority of debilitating symptoms caused by the disease stem from inflammation of the brain.

Due to its ability to regrow brain cells and reduce brain inflammation, it is quite possible marijuana will be, and always has been, the perfect antidote to neurodegenerative diseases. One can only hope others will continue to bravely speak out about the benefits of marijuana in an effort to give future generations a shot at a health care system, and ultimately a quality of life, unparalleled to our own.

**Although you may know a habitual smoker who seems to suffer from memory loss, it is important to note that said benefits of marijuana were achieved using extremely low doses. Researchers discovered a single puff a day is enough to provide an individual with significant, long-lasting health benefits.
