8 Amazing Health Benefits of THC – Part 2 of 4
#3.) Protects Brain Cells
Reefer madness led a lot of people to believe that cannabis consumption kills brain cells. However, the reality is this could not be further from the truth.
While most drugs are neurotoxic, THC is considered to be neuroprotectant. Which means that it actually protects brain cells from damage.
Here’s a mind-blowing example a study in 2014 found that people with THC in their systems were 80 percent less likely to die from traumatic head injuries than those without.
#4.) Effective Sleep Aid
Have trouble sleeping? Research shows that THC health benefits play a role here as well.
Trials in the 1970s found that oral doses of THC helped insomniacs fall asleep faster. And that’s not all. Recent research suggests THC may also improve breathing while reducing sleep interruptions.
Great news for those suffering from conditions such as sleep apnea!
