new treatment maybe

this drug that has been around for years is approved to treat this list of diseases or conditions

- Cancer associated with severe/chronic pain, nausea or severe vomiting, or cachexia or severe wasting
- Glaucoma
- Tourette’s syndrome
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Seizures, including those characteristic of epilepsy
- Severe and persistent muscle spasms, including those characteristic of multiple sclerosis
- Inflammatory bowel disease, including Crohn’s disease
- Terminal illness, with a probable life expectancy of less than one year
- Intractable pain
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Obstructive sleep apnea

this drug just got approved to also treat alzheimers disease since its been shown is some early research to possibly slow down the development of alzheimers disease
my approach with all this is if it shows promise
it wont kill me
it might help
im going to take it
the option is well right now theres not one

they approved its use for this condition
alzheimers disease

i guess you are wondering whats this drug that just got approved for use in alzheimers
it was marijuana

in minnesota since its passed its new medical marijuana laws which allow medical marijuana treatment of these conditions above

more will be added later

the ones that ive seen patients or friends use medical marijuana are
glaucoma its been used for this for a long time
pain if you talk to pain folks you will find that many of them have added marijuana to their treatments
chemotherapy side effects
loss of appetite especially from chemotherapy hiv aids
multiple sclerosis symptoms

if you look closely at these diseases
many of them are neurological
many are terminal or potentially terminal
many have inflammation as their cause
one pain has lead to opioid abuse which is the main reason our longevity in the united states has decreased the first time in modern history and has lead to the largest source of organ donations mostly from young adults

we need the federal government to get on board so that the research that really needs to be done on this drug can be done

in the meantime
what harm will it cause if you treat some of these diseases with this stuff
the alternative
there may not be one right now

i live in california
i obtained this bottle of marijuana softgels with 10 mg of cbd oil in them from a reputable company
thanks to california laws the regulation of this drug has made it easier to accurately dose this drug
i took them after i read an article that showed in animal studies that the cbd oil could lower the amyloid in the brain
true research in humans hasnt really been done enough yet thanks to the federal government but it needs to be done since this drug may help slow this disease down
in the meantime a lot of folks are using it for this reason
no it doesnt make you high since it has no thc in it
