A new study reveals how dangerous inflammations in the brain are caused during the aging process. Researchers say failure with the CB1 to control activity of immune cells may result in chronic neuroinflammation. They say it may be possible to break this vicious cycle in the future with drugs that contain THC, which is a powerful CB1 receptor activator.
Researchers report low doses of THC can help restore memory and reverse some of the effects of brain aging in mice. The findings could open new avenues for treating dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers report deficiencies of natural cannabinoids could result in a predisposition for developing depression and PTSD. Boosting the system could help in treating stress related disorders.
Researchers report on the role type 1 cannabinoid receptors play in controlling negative memories.
Researchers discover a connection between the quantity of CB1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain and PTSD.
