Biological activity of cannabinoids is caused by binding to two cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. Psychoactive is not only tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but also: cannabidiol, cannabigerol or cannabichromen. Formerly, the usefulness of hemp was assessed in the relation to temporary appeasement of the symptoms of some ailments as nausea or vomiting. Present discoveries indicates that cannabis-based drugs has shown ability to alleviate of autoimmunological disorders such as: Multiple sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or inflammatory bowel disease. Another studies indicates that cannabinoids play role in treatment of neurological disorders like Alzheimer disease or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or even can reduce spreading of tumor cells. Cannabinoids stand out high safety profile considering acute toxicity, it is low possibility of deadly overdosing and side-effects are comprise in range of tolerated side-effects of other medications.

The pacemaker implanted in the brain that can prevent Alzheimer's patients losing their memory | Mail Online

Using cannabis is less expensive and does not require "delicate" brain surgery as does this treatment. There is a growing body of data which proves that marijuana/cannabis use prevents environments that lead to Alzheimer's, reduces inflammation, breaks up plaque and scar tissue in the brain and triggers the production of healthy new neurons to replace the damaged ones. Euphoranoia and marijuanaphobia and reefer madness are robbing humanity of safe, effective and inexpensive preventatives and remedies for the most devastating sicknesses which plague us. Marijuana prohibition harms us all. The 'pacemaker' implanted in the brain to prevent Alzheimer's patients losing their memory, as possible means reversing cognitive decline. Early trials show the device appears to keep brain neurons active. High hopes will be viable alternative to drug treatments.

By Anna Hodgekiss 5 December 2012 | UPDATED: 06:20 EST, 10 A ‘pacemaker’ has been implanted in to the brain of an Alzheimer's patient in a bid to reduce memory loss. The device, which uses deep brain stimulation, has already been used in thousands of people with Parkinson’s disease as possible means of boosting memory and reversing cognitive decline.Now the first patient in the US has undergone the delicate surgery to try and halt the effects of dementia, which slowly robs its mostly elderly victims of a lifetime of memories and the ability to perform the simplest of daily tasks.
