Researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York analyzed the effects of cannabidnoids (CBDs) and ethanols in laboratory mice to find whether the cannabidiol compound could one day serve as a viable treatment for individuals at high risk for liver disease. The study dosed the mice with CBD followed by ethanol injections twice a day for five days. Their findings were promising.
Basically, if you want to shield yourself against liver damage, just get crossfaded.
According to the study, which was recently published in the Free Radical Biology and Medicine Journal, cannabidiol works by blocking the development of fat around the liver, “possibly by preventing the increase in stress and the activation of the JNK MAPK pathway.”
Past studies also indicate cannabidiol can reduce alcohol-induced brain damage, according to High Times.
Moral of the story? Temper your tequila shots with a bong hit.
To Protect Against Liver Damage, Just Crossfade.
