2. CBD As A Neuroprotective, Anti-Inflammatory Medicine
The cutting edge of cannabis research looks into the plant as a treatment for serious diseases like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer‘s, and multiple sclerosis.
In this regard, one of the most important CBD studies ever published came out in 2006. The study’s title is super-technical, but it underscores the neuroprotective aspect of cannabidiol (CBD). It’s called “The marijuana component cannabidiol inhibits beta-amyloid-induced tau protein hyperphosphorylation through Wnt/beta-catenin pathway rescue in PC12 cells.”
Researchers are still trying to figure out the exact mechanisms behind neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s. We know it has to do with a protein pathway, and that’s exactly the pathway this study examined. Researchers looked deep down to the molecular level, making this study very important for future research.
The results “provide new molecular insight regarding the neuroprotective effect of cannabidiol and suggest its possible role in the pharmacological management of , especially in view of its low toxicity in humans.”
