Researchers have found that THC (a substance found in cannabis) may help slow the growth of the amyloid beta protein, which promotes the progression of Alzheimer’s.

1. A Potential Breakthrough

Media Source

Anyone who has an elderly loved one knows that Alzheimer’s disease can be absolutely devastating. The good news is that scientists may have hit a breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research.

2. What Causes Alzheimer’s?

Media Source

Well, no one’s quite sure, but what we do know is that it’s the result of the build-up of two types of lesions in the brain: amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. In order to develop the first-ever effective treatment for Alzheimer’s, we’d have to find something that would clear out these lesions…

And that’s where cannabis comes into play.

3. Cannabis To The Rescue

Media Source

Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is an active compound found in cannabis. Researchers have found that it may help to slow the growth of the amyloid beta protein, which can aid in the progression of Alzheimer’s.

    THAT IS WHY IT SHOULD BE IN EVERY NURSING HOME, AND THE REST OF US GIVEN FREEDOM OF CHOICE!!!

    • Hopefully in the form of cannabis oil, futuret. I imagine a bunch of us seniors sitting around and smoking it would be problematic.

        I DO NOT APPROVE OF ANY KIND OF SMOKE, AND CANNABIS WOULD HAVE TO BE GROWN WITH THE HIGHEST OF STANDARDS. IT COULD BE PROCESSED AS OIL, CAPSULE FORMULA, AND IN SOME CASES IT COULD BE USED AS A JUICE. IT IS NOT ONLY BENEFICIAL FOR US SENIORS (ME 63), BUT ALSO YOUNG CHILDREN THAT HAVE PROBLEMS WITH EPILEPSY, AND THEY COULD REFRAIN FROM THE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE SYNTHETIC DRUGS. AMAZING, HOW IN A FEVER THEY ARE DESTROYING THE RAIN FOREST, THAT ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN GOLD. ANY SMOKE IS HARMFUL.

    i think this drug is not real solution ,i hope we can get right medicine soon,we can use antioxidant drugs Prophylaxis of Alzheimer.

  5. I think the most promising prophylaxis of Alzheimers will be a move by the medical establishment to get people off the low fat high carbohydrate diets western doctors have been erroneously recommending for the the last five decades. This recommendation, based on rigged research, is largely responsible for the epidemic of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and cancer in industrialized societies. With good reason, many doctors are labeling Alzheimers type 3 diabetes – mainly because people who eat low carbohydrate diets with a healthy balance of animal fat don’t get it. I’m fairly confident that if we solve the type 2 diabetes epidemic, we will solve Alzheimers as well.

      AN EXCELLENT PERSPECTIVE AND ANALYSIS. IN ORDER FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH CARE TO TAKE PLACE, WE MUST LOWER THE HOUSING COSTS. INSURANCE IS NOT ALWAYS THE PROBLEM AND/OR SOLUTION, BUT LOWERING HOUSING COSTS WILL BENEFIT IN THE LONG RUN AS WELL. PEOPLE SPEND MORE THAN THREE QUARTERS OF ANY INCOME ON HOUSING COSTS. TRUMP IS TRYING TO ELIMINATE MEDICAID, BUT WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN, IS THE HAVE MEDICAID REORGANIZED. IF YOU ARE ABOVE A CERTAIN INCOME, THEN YOU SHOULD BE FREE TO CHOICE WHATEVER INSURANCE YOU WANT IN ANY STATE. IF PEOPLE COULD CONCENTRATE ON HEALTH RATHER THAN HIGH HOUSING COSTS, THIS WOULD EXCEEDINGLY PROVE TO BE BENEFICIAL.

  6. I agree, futuret. Society as a whole needs to guarantee a right to affordable housing.
