How does Michigan Medical Marijuana Help Treat Alzheimer’s Disease?
There are many ways and methods that cannabis can help those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in Michigan find relief from their symptoms. THC can help patients by stimulating one’s appetite, delivering a better quality of sleep, decreasing agitation, and patient’s overall symptom severity. Although cannabis is not a cure-all, it can significantly impact the effectiveness of patient’s current treatment plans when added into their current pharmaceutical routine. Cannabis also helps those with Alzheimer’s make it possible for them to live their lives at home with caregivers, avoiding nursing home placement, which in some cases makes all the difference when battling the disease. For those who have early onset of Alzheimer’s, cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptors in the body respond well by improving cognitive impairment, reducing inflammatory reactions.
Controlling inflammation in those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s is extremely important, as cannabis has the ability to slow the progression of the disease in early-onset cases. Cannabis has anti-inflammatory benefits, and also acts as a neuroprotective. Cannabis helps by working with the body’s natural cannabinoid receptors in the body to rejuvenate damaged cells, and prevent further damage to cells in the brain, hopefully slowing the disease. The combination of the use of THC and CBD can do wonders for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, as many options are available for purchase at Michigan dispensaries.
