… Wake and Bake! It does a body good
As we get “older” (not always wiser), there are many changes occurring in the human brain, most of which I can do without. The same aging process we see in the human mind, we also see in rats. There is a development within the aging mind… a swelling of the brain; some might call it an inflammation. To the trained eye, it looks a lot like a brain that has been injured. But in the case of an aging mind it happens as a matter of … just getting old.
Up until to a few years ago scientist weren’t even aware that inflammation developed in the brain. Now they see this in the background of a lot of diseases. What science has discovered is that marijuana can release their cannabinoids, the main active components within the plant, and that when these cannabinoids enter the brain, even at very low levels; the patient is able to reduce this brains inflammation. The scientific world is incredibly excited about this new discovery. For the first time ever – scientists have now identified a compound that actually works in an older brain.[nggallery id=313]
…One hit will help
The young are strong, and things seem to heal much faster and easier for them. This new discovery will help to provide promise for the elderly and their more damaged brain tissue. This means, if you’re sixty or seventy, and are having some problems with mental decline – we now have a plant based mechanism that can target your problem area…at very, very, low doses. We’re talking about the equivalent of one hit off a marijuana joint, or rip (inhale) from a bong. Now this is something that’s likely to produce the euphoria of the high. But as scientists continue to experiment with the different cannabinoids, many believe that they might someday be able to get to the point where the marijuana doses are just strong enough to work on the brains inflammation and reduction; without the unwanted “high” associated with the plants THC cannabinoid.
…Slap on “the patch”
As the scientific community continues to investigate this new line of research, some believe we are just now at the beginning point, of what many think will be a very productive and helpful line of research. The thinking behind these studies is that someday you might actually take this medication, by just slapping on a patch — not as much fun as smoking a joint, but none the less helpful. In other words, the patients wouldn’t actually have to smoke any pot.
Dose the scientific case for a “Magic Cannabinoid Bullet” really exist? I think it does. Most scientific scholars that have studied the human – marijuana – cannabinoid relationship, think it does. Shouldn’t we be allowed to perform studies like this in the U.S.? As long as marijuana is maintained by the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), as a schedule one NARCOTIC right up there with LSD and heroin, the only studies that can be performed on this topic come for other countries. While that’s fine for them…I just want to make sure that this plant gets its justified “PARDON” from the U.S. government for being falsely vilified for so many years.[nggallery id=314]
…Coffee a Neron-protective
As one who cannot… nor will not, leave the house before having a couple of cups of coffee in the morning, then waiting for the violent aftermath. I was pleased to learn (in the below video), that not only is my wake and bake routine good for my soul; It’s also great for my mind. It turns out that having four to five cups of coffee a day in the morning, is not only good for getting rid of last night’s dinner; It also bathes your brain in the coffees chemicals which acts as a neuro-protective — it prevents the death of neurons whose death leads to Parkinson’s disease.
