Cannabis removes Alzheimer’s-related protein from nerve cells

Amyloid proteotoxicity initiates an inflammatory response blocked by cannabinoids

The beta amyloid (Aβ) and other aggregating proteins in the brain increase with age and are frequently found within neurons. The mechanistic relationship between intracellular amyloid, aging and neurodegeneration is not, however, well understood. We use a proteotoxicity model based upon the inducible expression of Aβ in a human central nervous system nerve cell line to characterize a distinct form of nerve cell death caused by intracellular Aβ. It is shown that intracellular Aβ initiates a toxic inflammatory response leading to the cell’s demise. Aβ induces the expression of multiple proinflammatory genes and an increase in both arachidonic acid and eicosanoids, including prostaglandins that are neuroprotective and leukotrienes that potentiate death. Cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol stimulate the removal of intraneuronal Aβ, block the inflammatory response, and are protective. Altogether these data show that there is a complex and likely autocatalytic inflammatory response within nerve cells caused by the accumulation of intracellular Aβ, and that this early form of proteotoxicity can be blocked by the activation of cannabinoid receptors.

Saved my life with Cannabis Activated Retrograde Synaptic Signaling (CARSS), Hemmaggluting bacteria, and virus-hosting bacteria from my CONSUMPTIVE WASTE by EATING HEMP SEED, SWITCHING on my CARSS-CB2 Receptors WITH Beta-Caryophyllene, (a CBD-Like CB2 Receptor Agonist, and the FIRST CANNABINOID Approved by FDA in 1964), and my CARSS-CB1 Receptors to suppress the TRAUMA of the digestive dis-order has caused WITH THC! Then reverse engineered the process to learn about CARSS, the Body’s OWN Regulation and Modulation system and how the Human system works with Cannabis and Hemp to relieve Chronic Conditions.
