Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Qualifies for Medical Marijuana in Michigan
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a type of neurological disorder that weakens one’s muscles and impacts physical function. The neurodegenerative disease affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, which can drastically change a patient’s way of life. The life expectancy of those diagnosed with ALS is only 2-5 years. Medical Marijuana can offer much relief to the symptoms of ALS, and make everyday life a lot easier for those battling the rare disease.
How can Medical Marijuana Help Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)?
Medical marijuana is a great way for those who are battling ALS to manage their symptoms. Similar to other qualifying conditions, research has shown that THC can actually slow the progress of the disease, similar to those with Parkinson’s Disease. THC and CBD are neuroprotectants and can actually rejuvenate dying brain cells, hopefully slowing the overall disease. THC and other cannabinoids work in the body to reduce inflammation in these neurons and help revive old damaged cells. Medical marijuana can also help with other symptoms those with ALS deal with such as loss of appetite, nausea, chronic pain, and sleep help with sleep.
