For most people, the idea that cannabis may be able to assist with such a serious disease may seem absolutely absurd. Many people see the herb as a dangerous, illicit drug that has no place in modern medicine. The truth is, this point of view has been cultivated by decades of propaganda and political manipulation. When we look at the hard facts in the form of scientific publications, we see that cannabis is an extremely potent and complex medicine that works with the body in a very powerful and specific manner. This occurs via the endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors that are activated by the molecules found within the cannabis plant.
So, how exactly can this plant work to prevent and possibly treat diabetes? Well, the main mechanism may involve weight management, an important factor when considering the extremely close relation between obesity, BMI, and type 2 diabetes. This may seem surprising considering certain stereotypes associated with consuming cannabis, such as the overindulgence in food, laziness, and lack of exercise. It turns out, these may very well be fictitious accounts perpetuated by pop culture over time.
PROTECTION FROM BRAIN INJURIES
What happens to the brain when it is injured? While the specifics depend on the exact injury, generally speaking, there are three factors that damage the brain in the period of time after the trauma has occurred. Fortunately, THC and CBD in medical marijuana can help protect your brain during the period of time following a brain injury. The three major areas THC and CBD can protect against are:
An increase in excitatory brain chemicals, which if there is too much of a release in these chemicals, brain cells will die.
An increase in free radicals that are released because of the injury. Free radicals can damage brain cells as well as your DNA.
An increase in brain inflammation, which can permanently damage the way in which brain cells communicate with one another. #weed#weedmaps#mmj#cannabisoil#cannabiscommunity#marajauna#medicalmarijuana#joint#weedlife#mmjpatient#mmjgirls#mmjcommunity#nug#nuggets#thc#cbd#toke4toke#ampdabber#anxietyrelief#cannareleaf

Over the last 6 years I've logged countless hours in Drs officers, in lectures and with brain injury patients as well as learning more and more daily about my brain injury and my one of my conditions,, savant syndrome. Getting a concussion can be incredibly traumatic. Not only at the time of impact, but also in the weeks, months, and even years that follow. Some symptoms of a concussion can be debilitating, and unfortunately, one of the most effective treatments for this condition is simply time. Often, sufferers have to wait it out whilst the brain attempts to repair itself. Research, although in its infancy, may point to cannabis as holding the key to helping recovery. Not only in the after stages of concussion, but even in helping to reduce the extent of the initial damage.
Despite the fear mongers who have for decades proposed that cannabis can damage brain cells, new research suggests that it may actually assist in repairing damaged nerves resulting from impacts to the brain. Several studies offer a look into how cannabinoids may be of profound effect, although much more research is needed to obtain conclusive answers.
