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

Cannabinoids protect cells, just as the endocannabinoid palmitoylethanolamide, our topic, has been demonstrated to be a protective molecule in hundreds of studies. Cannabinoids deserve more attention! Especially the value in disorders with pain and slow inflammation needs this attention (e.g. diabetic neuropathy).

mjA 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. You can read the entire study here.

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. By supplying these receptor sites with cannabinoids, patients may be able to overcome brain conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, and more, not to mention premature brain aging. The human brain…
