Doctors: marijuana can help in organ transplants

Scientists from the University of South Carolina found: the main active ingredient of cannabis slows down organ rejection during transplantation. Their theory they confirmed in experiments on laboratory mice, says Zee News.

The main problem with organ transplants is rejection of the organ by the immune system. Usually after the transplant, the patient for many years receives high doses of drugs that depress the immune system. It turns out that not only immunosuppressants can help patients. THC, the main active ingredient of marijuana, has been slowed by the rejection of the transplanted organ in mice. It is likely that similar mechanisms will work with humans.

THC, according to scientists, suppresses the immune response. To try marijuana immediately after the transplant, doctors do not recommend. Don't forget that in most countries this plant is related to a group of drugs that are prohibited by law.
