New Study Shows Cannabinoids Improve Efficiency Of Mitochondria And Remove Damaged Brain Cells

New Study Shows Cannabinoids Improve Efficiency Of Mitochondria And Remove Damaged Brain Cells
A recent study conducted by Andras Biokei-Gorzo at the Institute of Molecular Psychiatry at the University of Bonn in Germany is suggesting that marijuana(or the activation of the brain’s cannabinoid system) triggers the release of antioxidants, which act as a cleansing mechanism. This process is known to remove damaged cells and improve the efficiency of mitochondria. Mitochondria is the energy source that powers cells. The study was published in Philosophical Transactions Of The Royal Society, B. These discoveries shed new insight on how natural marijuana cannabinoids hold the capacity to literally kill the brain inflammation responsible for causing cognitive decline, neural failure, and brain degeneration. Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. Biokei-Gorzo and his collegues said that the greatest hurdle for moving forward with their research are the social and political challenges.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta: Why I changed my mind on weed Dr. Sanjay Gupta says we have been "systematically misled" on marijuanaDEA lists marijuana as a schedule 1 substance with "high potential for abuse"Most recent research on marijuana has been on its negative effects, Gupta saysStudies on marijuana require approval from National Institute on Drug Abuse (CNN) -- Over the last year, I have been working on a new documentary called "Weed." I traveled around the world to interview medical leaders, experts, growers and patients. Long before I began this project, I had steadily reviewed the scientific literature on medical marijuana from the United States and thought it was fairly unimpressive. Well, I am here to apologize. I apologize because I didn't look hard enough, until now. Instead, I lumped them with the high-visibility malingerers, just looking to get high. Dr. They didn't have the science to support that claim, and I now know that when it comes to marijuana neither of those things are true. Medical facts of Marijuana WEED: A Dr.

Mother Saves Her Son From Cancer By Choosing Cannabis Over Chemotherapy Under doctors’ orders, 3-year-old Landon Riddle began treatment for his leukemia: aggressive chemotherapy and radiation. But while still living in Utah, Sierra Riddle watched her little boy become violently ill from the chemotherapy. Landon suffered nerve-damage in his legs, nausea that led to vomiting dozens of times a day, intense pain and at one point went 25 days without eating following the chemo treatment, according to CNN. “Around the clock, he was usually on liquid morphine, Ativan, Promethexane,” Sierra told CNN. “And it just really didn’t seem to be helping.” Feeling like her family “didn’t have anything left to lose” she looked into medical marijuana treatment. “Within four weeks we could see the improvement,” Sierra told KRDO, a local news affiliate Sierra swapped chemotherapy for cannabis therapy and has seen her son return to his old energetic self as his cancer has gone into remission.

The cannabinoid CB1 receptor antagonist SR 1... [Behav Brain Res. 2006] How Hemp Oil Cures Cancer And Why No One Knows Cannabis extract medicine, also known as “hemp oil” when referring to the type pioneered by Rick Simpson, is a concentrated formulation of cannabis that is ingested orally. By eating large quantities of the oil over a three to six month period, nearly any disease you can imagine can either be cured or completely controlled. This is possible because cannabis medicine works fundamentally through the endocannabinoid system, the superregulatory system of our bodies that maintains homeostasis in the other systems. You can see the reality of cannabis medicine’s effectiveness in all the things that smoking it is good for. It is widely known and observable that people with cancer, chronic pain, inflammatory conditions, and other conditions smoke cannabis with remarkable efficacy. But with cannabis extract oil, there are two primary differences. First, the cannabinoids are much more concentrated than with smoking, so it has a more powerful effect on your system.

Dispatch from Colorado: The Interesting Case of Marijuana Entrepreneurs I spent last week in the Greater Denver area researching implementation of legalized cannabis. In the process, I found a remarkable situation: a robust entrepreneurialism around an industry that elsewhere lives in the shadows of society. In 48 other states in the US, members of an organization growing hundreds of cannabis plants under one roof would be arrested by state or local police and charged with serious felonies. Under Colorado state law, such behavior is perfectly legal, so long as it conforms to Amendment 20 and/or Amendment 64 to the Colorado Constitution, and the subsequent statutory and/or regulatory requirements on the cannabis industry. The result is surreal. Regardless of one’s personal feelings on the issue, Colorado has determined (and within bounds, the federal government has allowed) the construction of a legal, recreational, and highly regulated market by which consumers can purchase a vast array of cannabis products. And the operations were just as scientific.

Shocking Results: Woman Replaces 40 Medications With Raw Cannabis Juice Although the results may not be shocking to everyone, many people on the planet are just starting to wake up to the tremendous medicinal benefits that cannabis has to offer. A recent study conducted by the Institute of Molecular Psychiatry at the University of Bonn in Germany just discovered that the activation of the brain’s cannabinoid system triggers the release of antioxidants that act as a cleansing mechanism. This process is known to remove damaged cells and improve the efficiency of mitochondria. Mitochondria is the energy sources that powers cells. There is also a large amount of evidence supporting the fact that cannabis can also be an effective treatment, and even a potential cure for cancer. Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system(2). Source:

Email - Minn.: It's official, Gov. Dayton signs medical marijuana legislation - Marijuana Policy Project Minn.: It’s official, Gov. Dayton signs medical marijuana legislation Email your lawmakers to either thank them for supporting medical marijuana or encourage them to continue to educate themselves if they did not. Dear Supporter, Gov. Passage of this law was never certain, and, at times, political pundits dismissed the idea that the legislature could agree to any kind of program; but patients, families, and advocates prevailed. While lawmakers had the pleasure of actually casting the votes, they would not have been in a position to do so without the tireless work of all the advocates, patients, and their families. Sincerely, Robert J.

The Marinol Myth – or – How To Lie To America | Alex's Story “Medical marijuana already exists. It’s called Marinol.” (Excerpt from the DEA’s marinol page ) Marinol SUCKS I got an email from somebody who saw our website and wanted to know if we tried Marinol. The government would have us all believe that medical marijuana is dangerous for a wide variety of reasons, and as proof that there’s no need for cannabis, they provide Marinol. What they state sounds very compelling, and a lot of people buy it, but I have a few words to say about the DEA and their continued campaign of lies. Marinol is safer than cannabis because it isn’t smoked. The DEA won’t shut up about this, and I for one am sick to death of hearing it. Then there is the simple fact that many medications are better when taken in a non-pill form. And if we insist on talking about safety, let’s keep in mind that the therapeutic index of marijuana is 1000:1 in conservative estimates, and I’ve seen it stated to be as high as 20,000:1. Marinol comes from a pharmacy Marinol is legal

Science Seeks to Unlock Marijuana's Secrets This story appeared in the June 2015 issue of National Geographic magazine. There’s nothing new about cannabis, of course. It’s been around humankind pretty much forever. In Siberia charred seeds have been found inside burial mounds dating back to 3000 B.C. The Chinese were using cannabis as a medicine thousands of years ago. Marijuana is deeply American too—as American as George Washington, who grew hemp at Mount Vernon. Then came Reefer Madness. But now, as more and more people are turning to the drug to treat ailments, the science of cannabis is experiencing a rebirth. In 23 states and the District of Columbia cannabis is legal for some medical uses, and a majority of Americans favor legalization for recreational use. Ganja is simply around us more, its unmistakable but increasingly unremarkable smell hanging in the air. Still, for many, cannabis has become a tonic to dull pain, aid sleep, stimulate appetite, buffer life’s thumps and shocks. The Chemist: Treasure Trove “Mea culpa!”

Molecular Biologist Explains How THC Kills Cancer Completely by Christina Sarich From Compultense University in Madrid, Spain, Dr. Christina Sanchez has been studying the anti-tumor effects of THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, for over a decade. She delivers sound information that explains exactly how THC kills cancer cells entirely – without adverse effects to healthy cells. Her research is an addition to other’s work, such as British scientist, Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London’s St. Liu points out that pharmaceutical companies spend billions on drugs that do the very same thing, while the cannabis plant does it naturally. “There’s quite a lot of cancers that should respond quite nicely to these cannabis agents,” Liu said. Patent No. 6,630,507, for example, is for cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. In fact, three scientists from the Department of Health and Human Services said in the abstract — or summary — of their findings submitted with the patent application: Sources: Natural Society Image Credit
