‘Unique’ cannabis compound improves memory in old mice – study

Small doses of a THC compound found in marijuana have made old mice suddenly come alive with a “young brain, according to a study by a team of Bonn University researchers and colleagues from The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, published in the journal Nature Medicine.

When asked how they had tested a mouse’s memory, Professor Zimmer said that four weeks after they implanted tiny pumps under the animals’ skin which constantly released the drug, the results were quite staggering … “We basically couldn’t distinguish between the old and young mice” … When asked if a young person could just walk away, smoke a joint and see his/her memory improve, he said that cannabis is a drug that [appears to have] the opposite effect on young animals as opposed to old ones.
