Marijuana Helps Raise the Brain's Nervous Disease

What's the first thing you think about when you hear a word of marijuana or marijuana? Often the sentence hangs to death or addiction between things that come to mind.

But now some countries allow marijuana use in medicine including Canada, Australia, several states in the United States, some European countries, North Korea and some South American countries, most recently Thailand.

A recent study by Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) Neuroscience researchers found that marijuana or cannabis is capable of stimulating the formation of dead brain nerves.

Head of Research, Associate Professor Dr Mohamad Aris Mohd Moklas, said that cannabis intake at low dosage can benefit from a health point but can cause harm if taken over 2mg / kg.

The study, conducted over the past two years, involves four groups of rats receiving Tetrahidrokannabinol injection (THC), a psychoactive compound extracted from cannabis at doses of 0.5 milligrams (mg), 1.0 mg, 1.5 mg and 2.0mg / kg (kg).

The results showed that mice receiving THC injection 2.0 mg / kg showed decreased or decreased cognitive function but instead rats receiving dose as low as 1mg / kg, showed a positive sign of neuronal growth with normal cognitive function.


He also believes the outcome of the study provides guidance on the use of cannabis useful in treating brain-related nerve cells such as alzheimer or nygone. 

The study found that cannabis can increase neurogenesis, which stimulates the growth of neurons in normal mice based on protein instructions in the brain after injection at a given dose. 
What can be deduced from the study is that cannabis in small doses can stimulate the growth of new neurons in the brain. 
He said again, it was time to come, the government looked back and granted an investigation grant access to the potential for cannabis in treating certain illnesses to be exploited.
