One of these proteins is amyloid beta, which creates a dangerous plaque in the brains of patients with dementia that destroys nerve cells. When a small levels of THC reduces the amount of the protein in nerve cells, allowing them to survive.

However, strict drug laws are preventing researchers from studying this further. Applications for cannabis studies can take up to six months just to get approved.
