So far, there are about 22 receptors that marijuana interacts with. We cannot say this is our endocannabinoid system, since our own endocannabinoids do not interact with all of these receptors. Maybe, we can call it the exocannabinoid system!
Pharmaceutical companies develop drugs to interact selectively with one or two receptors in this system, but also come with a bunch of horrible side effects. Cannabis oil with a mix of CBD, CBG, Delta-9 THC, and a few select terpenes will interact with all of the receptors. Maximize your health with marijuana!
Beta Secretase Inhibitors
Terpenes: Geranyl acetone, Camphor, Fenchone,
Beta secretase 1 (BACE1) inhibitors are considered a leading treatment for treating Alzheimer's disease. They are still under going clinical trials. Early in Alzheimer's disease, the β-secretase (BACE1) enzyme required for the production of the neurotoxic β-amyloid. Beta secretase 1 (BACE1) inhibitors will reduce the formation of the neurotoxic β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide.
So far, cannabinoids help Alzheimer's disease in other ways. A few terpenes have been found to act as beta secretase 1 (BACE1) inhibitors.
The actual data for the terpenes are as follows, most potent one first:
The terpene data was taken from: Marumoto, Shinsuke & Okuno, Yoshiharu & Miyazawa, Mitsuo. (2017). Inhibition of β-Secretase Activity by Monoterpenes, Sesquiterpenes, and C13 Norisoprenoids.
