Raw grass protects against neurodegenerative diseases

Cannabinoid THCA Contained in Raw Cannabis Can Protect Brain Cells from Neurodegenerative Disease

There is a lot of evidence to suggest that the herb can help treat all kinds of medical conditions. Now, a new study is shedding light on some qualities of THC's little brother, THCA. Study concludes that cannabis in its raw, natural form can protect brain cells against many neurodegenerative diseases

Study the potential of THCA

One of the great things that makes this unique study is that researchers looked at a cannabinoid called tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, or THCA. THCA doesn't get a lot of attention in the cannabis world. Other cannabinoids like THC and CBD tend to take their place on the podium. But it turns out that THCA can be just as powerful and full-fledged.

In this new study, scientists wanted to see if this often neglected cannabinoid had medical effects on the brain. After testing how THCA affects mice, the researchers found some interesting findings. They wrote that the THCA "shows a powerful neuroprotective activity».

They added that the cannabinoid "is worth considering for the treatment of Huntington's disease and possibly other neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases."

This is good news, especially since there are a large number of neurodegenerative diseases. In addition to Huntington's disease, these diseases include Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, ALS and more.

Degenerative diseases: more than 50 million affected people in the United States

In addition a report stated that there are more than 600 different neurological disorders. Combined, they affect approximately 50 million people in the United States every year. By protecting brain cells from these types of degenerative diseases, THCA could have important health implications.

THCA vs. THC

THCA is an interesting canabinoid for a few other reasons. Already THCA is non-psychoactive, it is the inactive form of THC. Over time, the THCA produced by a cannabis plant slowly converts into psychoactive THC. The heat speeds up the process. In fact, that's exactly what happens when you smoke, vaporize your weed.

All of this means that in order to consume THCA, the herb must be consumed raw. Some claim that raw cannabis juice has a lot of health benefits. In fact, the researcher William Courtney said that people can have more or less the same therapeutic effects by eating the herb in its raw form, instead of smoking it.

In particular, Courtney claims that the raw weed gives you the "complete profile of the plant". And while that profile doesn't include a lot of THC, it would include a lot of THCA.
So directly cannabis in its raw form can " protect brain cells against degenerative diseasess. "

Raw grass

On various points, this study may seem major. For starters, she provides new data on how cannabis can protect brain cells against degenerative diseases. Beyond that, it provides vital information about that cannabinoid that has not received much attention, THCA.

Note that THCA is the most common cannabinoid in the cannabis plant, before it is decarboxylated. Which could ultimately mean that there are more health benefits in raw weed than previously thought.
