Here at Mary’s Wellness ltd. ; we are just looking to share knowledge of today’s science in order to provide knowledge and facts to those willing to listen, because knowledge is power, and no one should tell you how to think, so please excuse my bias if you see it come up.
As recent as May 2017, a study at Bonn university produced results which suggested that Cannabis in daily doses has the power to stimulate the cannabinoid system in the brain and reverse the effects of aging within our brain.
Their Study had the following summary:
- “Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these ageing processes in the brain. This was shown in mice by scientists at the University of Bonn with their colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Israel). Old animals were able to regress to the state of two-month-old mice with a prolonged low-dose treatment with a cannabis active ingredient. This opens up new options, for instance, when it comes to treating dementia.”
As we get older the base population deals with an aging mind that begins to have difficulties; focus on multiple tasks, recalling information (dementia). This is a result of the human body’s natural ability to create cannabinoids in the brain begins to slow down.
(2 year old mice to start the project)
A placebo group and a THC group were separated and given daily tasks and tests for approximately two years, the placebo group scored lower then the THC group, THC group displayed signs (molecular transformation) of young mice at the end of the test.
They study has strong suggestions to show that cannabis daily in low dosage rebuilds the brain by stimulating the cannabinoid system already present in our brain.
At the end of the study, the old brains were looked at under the microscope, but what scientists were shocked to find was the following:
The brains of older mice treated with THC had resembled the brains of the younger mice,
“It looked as though the THC treatment turned back the molecular clock,” says Prof. Dr. Andreas Zimmer
Human Trails around the corner? Scientists are underway in the next study for humans as the THC concentrate has already been selected,
“The promotion of knowledge-led research is indispensable, as it is the breeding ground for all matters relating to application. Although there is a long path from mice to humans, I feel extremely positive about the prospect that THC could be used to treat dementia, for instance.” The North Rhine-Westphalia science minister Svenja Schulze
I think what we are seeing here is science of today revealing what the science of yesterday could not see. Laws that prohibit the use of a plant were made at a time were science could not see the benefit’s. If we truly have “freedom” we should not be making laws against a plant which has shown to be of great benefit to the human physiology.
