Smoking a joint could improve memory of Alzheimer sufferers: study

PanARMENIAN.Net - Smoking a joint could improve the memory of Alzheimer’s ­sufferers, scientists have found.

The chemical that makes people feel high destroys rogue brain ­proteins behind the illness, The Sun says.

The “sticky plaques” which kill neurons and cause memory loss were reduced by a fifth in tests on mice with Alzheimer’s injected with pot’s active ingredient THC.

After six weeks of therapy they performed as well as healthy peers on a simple test - remembering where a shallow area of a small pool was located.

The promising results add to growing evidence that cannabis may lead to the development of drugs that target the cause of dementia, rather than the symptoms.
