Study: Cannabidiol (CBD) May Help to Prevent or Treat Neurodegenerative Diseases

Influenced by past studies, which showed cannabidiol helps recover iron-induced memory deficits, researchers from Pontifical Catholic University in Brazil examined the relationship between CBD and neurodegenerative diseases. The study found promising results when they examined the effect of cannabidiol. The levels of DNM1L and caspase 3 in the hippocampus returned to the normal levels with CBD treatment. Because those are the proteins associated with cell death, the researchers concluded that CBD may have protected the brain from the rapid cell death associated with iron.
