New research is beginning to show the effects of cannabis on the brain. Elderly mice were tested and it was found that low levels of the chemical THC, found in cannabis, were beneficial to those with dementia. The mice that were tested were 2-yr old mice, which typically can exhibit signs of dementia at that age. Researchers are hopeful this will help in humans with dementia in the future and can have a positive benefit to these individuals.
