Another health-related concern regarding which cannabis is viewed as a viable option is aging. Age is defined by some experts to be the accumulation of damage inside the body. In order to clarify this further we must first understand what “free radicals” are. These are unstable compounds that exist in the form of oxygen, environmental pollutants, and UV sun rays. When these free radicals enter our bodies and interact with our cells and our DNA, they suck up our energy and leave us with a certain level of damage.
The cannabinoids inside Marijuana are neurologically protective antioxidants, and they are helpful in neutralizing the “free radicals”, and preventing the occurrence of damage to our cells and DNA. Hence marijuana can work very effectively for anti-aging therapy. In a related context, some evidence was found on how the extracts of cannabis such as cannabis oil, can prevent Parkinson’s disease.
A review of preclinical research published by the National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, that cannabinoids can act as a guard against any neuro-toxicities that might contribute to this disease. Amyloid plaque, which we have established earlier while talking about Alzheimer’s disease, that marijuana reduces, is a toxic protein that accumulates with time and stops cells from proper communication between them. This plaque buildup after a certain time causes the development of the saddening ailment we know as Parkinson’s disease.
