Marijuana Fights Alzheimer’s Disease, New Study Indicates
In what is becoming nearly a daily occurrence, researchers have published another new study extolling the the healing benefits of cannabis. Findings presented in a recent issue of the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease “strongly suggest that THC (the main active ingredient in marijuana) could be a potential therapeutic treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease through multiple functions and pathways.”
I recently lost my grandfather to Alzheimer’s, after several grueling years of steady deterioration. The condition is physically and emotionally devastating to both the patient and loved ones, robbing productive adults of their minds and their dignity. I am thrilled at the prospect of any potential treatment for this disease. As a grower and purveyor of cannabis, I am particularly proud that our plant might help ease the suffering of those afflicted with this condition.
I would like to thank the authors of this study. Working with cannabis creates significant bureaucratic hurdles that most researchers never face. At Pure Green, we look forward to the day when marijuana is treated like any other medicine. Until then, we will do everything in our power to make it available to those that need it.
