Contrary to the common be…
Contrary to the common belief that smoking the drug destroys memory, researchers have found that it could actually keep the brain young.
We all know Marijuana is an illegal substance, and this message is far from promoting its use, but alas a new discovery has emerged! Browsing the internet for some interesting articles, I came across The Telegraph, a UK run magazine discussing some recent findings.
The article was written by Richard Alleyne, a science correspondent for the media. In his theory, he claims that researchers have recently discovered that this popular drug may actually reduce memory loss and prevent Alzheimer’s Disease from occurring. This report is based on a study conducted at the Ohio State University, providing results stating that certain chemicals in the herb may actually reduce inflammation and increase the formation of brain cells.
Who would have though that the long time belief on the limitations behind marijuana may not have been right at all? Although the direct link to a cure for Alzheimer’s is still unknown, the study signifies the drug’s ability to delay or prevent its start. Of course in order for this drug to be legalized, it has to be adjusted. Many of its properties will still remain, but the “high” feeling may not be as potent. Sorry folks!
So now its up to you to decide whether this is just crazy talk or some real life phenomenon. Of course, research has only started on this substance, there is still a load of facts yet to be discovered. For now though, we can be amazed at the fact that we could have held a wrong assumption this entire time.
Oh, Mary Jane, why do you confuse us so?
