Cannabis May Protect Neurons and Improve Motor Recovery During an Ischemic Stroke, Finds Study

cannabisohyeahA new study published in the Journal of Neurochemistry, and published online by the U.S. National Institute of Health, has found that cannabis may protect neurons and greatly improve motor recovery during an ischemic stroke. An ischemic stroke is caused by damage to the brain due to an interruption of its blood supply.

“Brain ischemia produces neuronal cell death and the recruitment of pro-inflammatory cells”, states the study’s abstract. “In turn, the search for neuroprotection against this type of insult has rendered results involving a beneficial role of endocannabinoid receptor agonists in the Central Nervous System.”

For the study, researchers administered a cannabinoid receptor agonist (ACEA) – meant to mimic the effects of cannabinoids – to mice experience brain ischemia. To assess motor activity, neural deficit scores and motor tests were performed 1 day before and 3, 7, 14, 21 and 28 days after the incident. At 7 and 28 days post-lesion, cytoskeleton structure, astroglial and microglial reaction and alterations in synapsis were studied in the cerebral cortex.

Researchers found that ACEA treatment “reduced astrocytic reaction, neuronal death and dendritic loss.” In addition. “motor tests showed a progressive deterioration in motor activity in ischemic animals, which only ACEA treatment was able to counteract.”

The study concludes; “Our results suggest that CB1R may be involved in neuronal survival and in the regulation of neuroprotection during focal cerebral ischemia in mice.”

The study was conducted by researches at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in Argentina; it can be found in full by clicking here.

    I hope to help others understand MARIJUANA. I have a 5.5 brain injury that it is HEALING. It is THC that helps deliver the “blood” that carries the CBD’s that HEALS !
    I “know” who I am. The great great great grandson of BLACK ELK, brother to SITTING BULL ~ I do not want to break laws and become ILLEGAL, but what do you do when the only thing that TRULY is helping my brain injury HEAL and not just “cope” with it ?
    I messed up I know this !
    I took it upon myself to find a way to get better and you want to take this AWAY from me and make me PAY for it again ?
    I know full and well that I am putting my life at risk, but HEALING EARTH is why I returned!
    On 08-30-2008 I wrecked my motorbike with no helmet on. It killed me 3 times in life flight putting me into an 87 day coma waking with a recorded 5.5 brain injury requiring me to go through rehabs relearning life. Once I returned home I had a friend ask me to get a medical card and try CANNABIS. I was amazed because not only did my memories start returning but my thought process was working again. This made me research why. I found that THC reduces blood vessels while making the heart pump harder making blood go to the injured brain. Head rushes are proof.
    I have proven that GOLD can be made and that would make the USA “debt” FREE ! The meteorite metal that does this was used LONG ago to retrieve DC power from around earth
    The DC electricity is called ATMOSPHERIC ENERGY & COPPER “TRANSITIONS” into GOLD
