Preparing To Get A Medical Cannabis License

Alzheimer’s disease is a disease that destroys people’s lives and memories. Alzheimer’s will slowly take over an individual’s brain where it makes it hard for one to complete simple tasks, think clearly, and it can slowly take over an individual’s ability to recall memories. Those watching a loved one that is suffering from this disease, have a challenging time as there is no known cure to fight Alzheimer’s, however, cannabis has been linked to helping fight and aid some of the different effects that Alzheimer’s has on the brain.

How Cannabis Can Help Alzheimer’s Disease:
Cannabis products are not known to prevent or stop the progression of Alzheimer’s. However, THC and CBD have been linked to helping reduce inflammation in the brain and in some cases were able to help protect neurons in the memory and cognitive areas of the brain. It has also been discovered that Cannabis can work to reduce the build-up of plaque in the brain which happens early into the disease. Using cannabis products may work to reduce the progression of Alzheimer’s over prescription drugs.

Treating the Symptoms:
Two common effects of Alzheimer’s are anxiety and aggression. In certain Alzheimer’s cases, aggression and violence have become so bad that patients have to be removed from a healthcare facility. Using cannabis products can help to treat these symptoms as research has shown that cannabis can help treat behavioral symptoms. For example, in one study 40% of behavior issues decreased when patients were given measured doses of cannabis which led to a decrease in the use of dangerous psychotropic medications.

If you or a loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s, consider getting a medical marijuana card. As cannabis can not end or cure Alzheimer’s disease completely, cannabis can ease some of the symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s. Contact us at Medwell Health and Wellness to get your license today.
