Study: Cannabis May Prevent Organs From Being Rejected During Transplants

Study: Cannabis May Prevent Organs From Being Rejected During Transplants

A recent study published in the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology, and by the National Institute of Health, has found that delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)images – one of the prime compounds in cannabis – can potentially stop organ transplant rejections from taking place.

The study, which found that the higher the dose of THC, the higher the chance of protecting against rejection, also found synthetic cannabinoids to share a similar protective ability. 

“This data supports the potential of this class of compounds [cannabinoids] to be used as therapies to prolong graft survival in transplant patients”, the study concludes.

According to researchers – although this study is one of the most detailed of its type – these findings aren’t particularly new; Cannabinoids were reported to have effects on immune responses as early as the 1970s, states the study.

The study was conducted by researchers at Temple University in Philadelphia.

    This is the “hardest” thing I have ever done. BUT, I do understand WHY it was needed to SHOW the WORLD “THC” heals brains !
    I was interviewed about my bike wreck & getting brain damage. I told them that CANNABIS was healing my brain injury. I was told they will never air because is not what investors want ! That is why I had to do a SPIRITUAL meditation & got that I was to share here.
    ~ I know exactly who I am, even with receiving a registered 5.5 brain injury. And for those that are as I was, it does NOT get worse ! It is the worst bike wreck in MONTANA to live through with no helmet.
    I am SITTING BULL’S great great great nephew.
    I am a highly intelligent person that received a registered 5.5 brain injury, spending 87 days in a coma. Once waking I had to go through rehabs relearning life again. I returned home & had a friend ask me to get a medical card & try “cannabis. I was amazed at how I could think again. My memories started returning & that made me very happy. Then others kept telling me that my speech & walking got better after smoking. At first I just thought they were “stoned”. But when it would not stop, I did my own research. I found that head rushes deliver blood to the injury in my brain. So this means that “THC” heals brain injuries !
