Is it True that After a Stroke Medical Marijuana Protects the Brain?


Strokes kill around 800,000 people in Canada; it is the third most common cause of death. When blood flow is disrupted in the brain by something, a stroke happens. The cells in the brain may begin to die after a stroke because of deprivation of glucose and oxygen in them. In some cases, they have permanent damage to the brain and others die.

 Does Medical Cannabis Help?

It Is under research that if medical cannabis can help someone who had a stroke, but more and more tests indicate towards cannabis having neuroprotectant properties. Neuroprotectant means things that protect the brain. When toxins accumulate in the neurological tissues, neurotoxicity occurs. In this condition, the nervous system and the brain seizes to work properly. Neurotoxicity can mimic symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic sinus problem, ADHD, ADD and many more disorders.

Strokes can trigger neurotoxicity. Due to the main ingredients present in cannabis, cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (TSH), the brain can be protected by using cannabinoids from neurotoxicity. This was concluded by research done in 1998.

In the study, it is seen that medical cannabis plays an important role in such a situation and the use of cannabis can add years to your life and keep your brain healthy.

You can get medical cannabis online, but you should be careful and buy them from reputed and licensed producers Canada.

The calcium influxes empower the receptors and cause neurotoxicity, but cannabinoids can reduce the calcium influxes. They get turned on to the cannabinoid receptors which in turn prevents glutamate neurotoxicity. When cannabinoid receptors are turned on, psychoactive effects take place from THC. CBD protects neurons from dying.

Every day we are learning amazing properties of the amazing advantages cannabis give us medically. Cannabis also is a powerful antioxidant and can give relief from cancer.
