Can Medical Cannabis Slow the Progression of Alzheimer's?

Can Medical Cannabis Slow the Progression of Alzheimer

With medical cannabis being on the forefront of many people's minds across industry and needs, there are questions about what medical cannabis can help, slow down, and possibly cure. Alzheimer's disease is one of those illnesses. There is currently a lot of research (in the scope of what actually can be researched with cannabis still being labeled as a Schedule I drug by the federal government) going towards the testing of medical marijuana being used to slow down the effects and cope with the symptoms associated with this horrible disease.

Alzheimer's and Dementia

Alzheimer's disease is a neurological disease that affects thinking, behavior, and memory. Alzheimer's a form of dementia, which is a general term for the loss of cognitive abilities and memory loss severe enough to compromise the quality of daily life. Much of this description may sound like normal aging, but Alzheimer's and dementia are outside of the realm of normal aging, it progresses quickly and sufferers typically lose more of the abilities needed to function and do the simple everyday task. There is currently no cure for Alzheimer's and dementia, but that is where cannabis research comes into play.

Possible Prevention

There have been studies published in medical journals, namely the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, that have shown that small doses of THC, the primary chemical compound found in cannabis, can possibly slow down the production of a key contributor to the deterioration of the brain and the progression of Alzheimer's disease called beta-amyloid proteins. Other studies have shown that THC and other chemical compounds found in marijuana can be used as protection against the buildup of this protein in the brain.
