THCA May Protect Nerve Cells

Friday, 11 January 2019

“Another cannabinoid jumps into the fray and heads straight to thenucleus of the thenrve cell, working right at the DNA level. Could hold potential in dealing with the complicated neuro inflammatory related to neurodegeneration in so manytoughchronicconditions. (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, Huntingtonsetc).”

Phytocannabinoids are produced in Cannabis sativa L. in acidic form and are decarboxylated upon heating, processing and storage. While the biological effects of decarboxylated cannabinoids such as Δ9 -tetrahydrocannabinol have been extensively investigated, the bioactivity of Δ9 -tetahydrocannabinol acid (Δ9 -THCA) is largely unknown.

Δ9 -THCA shows potent neuroprotective activity, which is worth considering for the treatment of Huntington's disease and possibly other neurodegenerative and neuroinflammatory diseases.
