Gateway Drug Bombshell – Cannabis Could Reduce Brain Damage in Crystal Meth Users
Meth injures the brain by stimulating the production of proteins and other chemicals that inflame the brain. In 2014, a study showed that THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), has neuroprotective results on the brain. It specifically showed that THC reduced the neurotoxic effect of meth on at least two markers of neuronal damage. This is because of the anti-inflammatory properties the cannabinoid has.
