Research Shows Cannabis Restores Memory and Could Reverse The Aging Process | | The Health Equity
Researchers from the University of Bonn, together with colleagues at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, have discovered that cannabis has age reversing effects in the brains of mice. This work could potentially help us develop new treatments for dementia. Aging and the Brain One of aging's most obvious signs is a decrease in cognitive function and learning ability. Usually, these issues express themselves in the form of memory deficiency. While this decrease in memory retention and recall is considered normal, it is often associated with more serious disorders, such as Alzheimer's or dementia. Now, a team of scientists from the University of Bonn and their colleagues from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem discovered a potential treatment to reverse aging in the brain. In their research, which was published in the journal Nature Medicine, the team showed how that a cannabis-based treatment successfully reversed the biological state of the brains of mice 12 months and 18 months old.
