E-mail

Cannabis As Medicine

E-mail

Most of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis are available from the plant in its dried, natural form. Psychoactive cannabis ingested in the form of edible preparations, vapour or smoke delivers a number of cannabinoids into the bloodstream, as well as numerous other compounds.

E-mail

A naturally occurring substance that resembles the active ingredient in marijuana is used by the brain's immune system to protect neurons, the cells that transmit information between the brain and body, from inflammation after an injury, a study has shown.

The study, which appears in tomorrow's issue of the journal Neuron, could lead to the development of drugs to treat brain inflammation and degeneration from multiple sclerosis and other disorders, according to the researchers led by Oliver Ullrich and others at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg in Magdeburg, Germany.
