Specific elements of marijuana can be good for the aging brain by reducing inflammation and possibly stimulating the formation of new brain cells, according to Ohio State University researchers.
The research suggests that the creation of a drug with certain properties similar to those in marijuana might
help prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease. The exact cause of Alzheimer’s is still not known, but chronic inflammation in the brain is believed to contribute to memory impairment.
