    Cannabinoid Offers Cardioprotection, Study Says

    Ramat-Gan, Israel: The administration of delta-9-THC protects heart muscle cells from injury during hypoxia (a deficiency in the levels of oxygen in the blood), according to preclinical trial data published in the February issue of the journal Molecular and Cellular Boichemistry.

    Researchers at the Bar-Ilan University in Israel investigated the effect of THC on cultured heart cells during hypoxia. "The present study confirm the ability of THC to confer cardioprotection on hypoxia-exposed cardiac cells in culture," authors concluded. Investigators defined" cardioprotection" as "delaying the onset of irreversible cell injury."

    Authors also noted that THC appears to be non-toxic to heart cells.

    "This research demonstrates that THC has beneficial effects on cardiac cells and supports the consideration of marijuana for specific medical uses," investigators concluded.

    Previous research indicates that cannabinoids may also protect brain cells against alcohol-induced brain damage, stroke, and acute head trauma.

Full text of the study," Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol protects cardiac cells from hypoxia via CB2 receptor activation and nitric oxide production," is available in the February issue of Molecular and Cellular Boichemistry.

  2. Sweet man. Rep+ for the good read :hello:
  3. nicee, ima forward this a bit
  4. That's great! Very good to hear.
  5. our victory's have are ready started, in every state medical THC pills are available thru prescription, although i believe they have the same medical schedule as meth or PCP.

    That would be cool if you could get weed in every state for medical purposes, although this might prevent it from being legalized for recreational use. What do you guys think?
  6. I dunno. I think that even if they discovered that THC makes people shit 100 dollar bills, the stupid ass US fucks won't legalize it because of all the madness and shit. dunno.
  7. rofl holy fukin shit ^^^^ (pink) ..

    nice psot:D
