Ultralow doses of cannabinoid drugs protect the mouse brain from inflammation-induced cognitive damage.

“In our previous studies, we found that a single ultralow dose of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)… protects the brain from different insults that cause cognitive deficits.

Because various insults may trigger a neuroinflammatory response that leads to secondary damage to the brain, the current study tested whether this extremely low dose of THC could protect the brain from inflammation-induced cognitive deficits…

Our results suggest that an ultralow dose of THC that lacks any psychotrophic activity protects the brain from neuroinflammation-induced cognitive damage and might be used as an effective drug for the treatment of neuroinflammatory conditions, including neurodegenerative diseases.”
