The Effects of Medical Marijuana on Alzheimer’s Treatment

Marijuana is a controversial topic in the medical community, with some well-respected doctors advocating for its use and others concerned about its addictive properties and long term effects. As researchers continue to explore the drug as a potential treatment to chronic and terminal illnesses, some studies are focusing their efforts on the effects of medical marijuana on Alzheimer’s treatment and symptoms.The Effects of Medical Marijuana on Alzheimer’s Treatment

Learn more about these studies and why more work needs to be done in evaluating it as a treatment for the disease.

Medical Marijuana Brings Controversy to the Medical Community

Medical marijuana or medical cannabis has been used throughout the world and for thousands of years to treat disease or alleviate symptoms from disease.

Currently, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved two medical marijuana medications in pill form, “dronabinol” and “nabilone.” These two drugs are being used to treat nausea caused by chemotherapy and increase the appetites of people with AIDS.

However, because of its addictive properties and unknown long term effects, its usage today is controversial in the medical community. While medical marijuana has been shown to reduce nausea in people undergoing chemotherapy and help people living with HIV/AIDS some medical professionals are wary of using it as a treatment method.

Several organizations, including the American Medical Association and the American Society of Addiction Medicine, have issued statements opposing its usage for medical treatment purposes.

The Effects of Medical Marijuana on Alzheimer’s Prevention

preclinical study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found that very small doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), a chemical found in marijuana, can slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins, thought to be a hallmark characteristic and key contributor to the progression of Alzheimer’s.

The study, published in 2014, is among others to support the effectiveness of THC in prohibiting the growth of toxic amyloid plagues.

Co-author of the study, Neel Nabar, cautions against drawing quick conclusions from their study saying:

“It’s important to keep in mind that just because a drug may be effective doesn’t mean it can be safely used by anyone. However, these findings may lead to the development of related compounds that are safe, legal, and useful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.”

Another study from the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California has also found that tetrahydrocannabinol and other compounds found in marijuana may reduce the amount of beta amyloid in the brain. Beta amyloid is a hallmark characteristic of Alzheimer’s and is commonly thought to cause the neurodegenerative disease.

While the findings are preliminary, researchers are optimistic about their findings. David Schubert, professor at the Salk Institute and senior author on the study says, “Although other studies have offered evidence that cannabinoids might be neuroprotective against the symptoms of Alzheimer’s, we believe our study is the first to demonstrate that cannabinoids affect both inflammation and amyloid beta accumulation in nerve cells.”

In the study, researchers found that by exposing beta amyloid proteins to THC, it reduced the levels of beta amyloid, stopped the inflammatory response from the nerve cells caused by beta amyloid and allowed the nerve sells to survive. Antonio Currais, a postdoctoral researcher and first author on the paper noted:

“Inflammation within the brain is a major component of the damage associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but it has always been assumed that this response was coming from immune-like cells in the brain, not the nerve cells themselves. When we were able to identify the molecular basis of the inflammatory response to amyloid beta, it became clear that THC-like compounds that the nerve cells make themselves may be involved in protecting the cells from dying.”

Researchers caution that their findings were conducted in a laboratory model and that further research needs to be done in a clinical trial before any conclusive evidence can be produced.

Using Medical Marijuana to Treat Dementia

While researchers have seen some success in using medical marijuana to fight the formation of beta amyloid plaques, studies are showing differing results in using it to treat the disease.

A research team from Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Netherlands, recently investigated the effects of medical marijuana on symptoms of dementia including aggression, anxiety, depression, insomnia and hallucinations, and did not see a statistically significance difference when using medical marijuana to treat symptoms associated with the disease.

The team divided their 50 participants into two groups with one group receiving 1.5 mg of medical marijuana pills and the other receiving a placebo pill. Participants took the pill three times a day for three weeks. After comparing the behavioral symptoms of both groups, researchers found there was no difference in the two groups.

Contrarily, a recent study published in The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease has concluded that cannabis extract containing THC can relieve these symptoms of Alzheimer’s.

Researchers from the Abarbanel Mental Health Center and the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel-Aviv University along with the Department of Psychology at Bar-Ilan University conducted the study, which was one of the first clinical studies observing the effects of cannabis on Alzheimer’s.

The study observed the effects of medical marijuana on 11 people living with Alzheimer’s over the course of 4 weeks. 10 participants finished the trial. Despite the small size of the study, researchers concluded that:

“Adding medical cannabis oil to Alzheimer’s patients’ pharmacotherapy is a safe and promising treatment option.”

    Please provide links to Journal articles when you use information such as the above. The information provided is too generalised. Of the 50 PWD trialled were they all at the same stage of the disease? where they all taking same meds? The treatment of chronic pain and tremors in PWD is of great interest. A great deal more information required.

    Great article! I have also read that medical marijuana reduces the growth of tumor in lung cancer patients. I’m just hoping this discovery will lead to a permanent solution for Alzheimer’s disease. It is such an unfortunate thing to happen to any family. My mother has Alzheimer’s and is living in an assisted care facility near us. ( http://www.prestigecare.com/assisted_services.php ) I feel that, more than the person affected by the disease, it is the immediate family members, who watch them go through this, is the ones that deals with the most pain. It’s hard, specially when our loved one won’t recognize us.

  • Dale Lewis

    Why doesn’t the medical “community” get their facts straight, with respect to the “addictive” properties of weed? Its simply NOT physically addictive! Surely, the enjoyable “high” can weave its magic spell, but that’s a still a choice that the user is free to make.

    • anechoic

      I thought the same exact thing! :/

      • Miguel Malave Figueroa

        I agree with all u said

    • Chels Rutledge

      Maybe because the medical community relies on science and facts rather than propaganda. Marijuana has been shown to only be mentally addictive (you like it so you want it) and not physically addictive (has negative physical affects on the body without it). It is less addictive to the body than sugar, msg, and caffein–all of which I would bet money you consume every day). My mother is highly accredited behavioral psychologist with a focus on addiction and 20 years of experience treating addiction. If you truly believe that pot is addictive you are ignoring the actual facts and listening to propaganda.

      • so you actually agree with Dale Lewis. I have to point out something else also. The vast Propaganda of the Medical / Pharmaceutical field that is very brainwashed. they are trained to make a profit for thier masters, they would rather Kill with Chemo than Cure with Cannabis.. where are the studies? Maybe outlawed by the same crooked lobbyists of the Pharmaceutical corporations that bribe our Politicians to keep the Cure illegal… They have legalized Meth, (adderall), and Heroin, (oxycontin) for our children but pretend Cannabis is too dangerous? American’s are Waking Up to the Crimes being pulled on U.S..

        • Chelsea

          Actually, I don’t fully understand his stance. The medical community is not confused about the addictive properties of marijuana. Mentally addictive like liking something liking it and doing it to the point it becomes habit. Like how a lot of times ex smokers, even when they break the nicotine addiction, still chew on pens or pretzel sticks because they need something to do with their hands–the habit can be addictive. But, generally, when the medical community refers to addiction, they refer to physical/chemical addiction and there is just no evidence of that with pot. I would also argue that most doctors would recommend marijuana over most prescription alternatives if they legally could because of how little it interacts with other drugs, the inability to OD on it, and it’s overall health properties compared to most drug alternatives.

          • Chelsea

            *Mentally addictive is like having something, liking it, and doing it to a point…*

            Here–this is why there is so much confusion as the the “addictive properties” of pot. http://www.rehabs.com/just-the-facts-psychological-vs-physical-addiction/

            The problem is public ignorance of the different forms of addiction NOT the medical communities use of the word addiction. Mental addiction is essentially psychosomatic. It’s all in your head.

            My 60yr old wife has CBGD .About 5yrs ago she was having the odd jerk in her left arm.An neroligest said it was caused by meds So she tried many different drugs which made it worse .Over the course of time her condition has gotten worse Finally I took her off al the meds but her BP and cholesterol meds and on the next visit he had know answers . I think that anyone with dementia or related conditions should never be put on drugs like antivan ,clonazepam ,diazepam or sleeping pills they all made things worse .So we finally tried CBD med marijuana oil and she a has show more improvement and doesn’t need her BP and cholesterol pills anymore!By this time she needs 24/7 care but the oil helps her sleep an keeps her nervousness under control all the other drugs caused her more suffering But before starting marijuana know the diferance between THC and CBD and the difference indicate and staviva .She sleeps a lot even befor starting the oil but she was always twitching and talking so she wasn’t getting any good sleep .But with the oil she has better sleep .I would rather her her snoring than not truly sleeping.And unlike sleeping pills she is more stable in the morning or when she gets up during the night. And as far as being addictive (ya right) (BS) It helps and no side affects .How many pages of side affects do you get with your perscriptions??? We all have cb1 and cb2 receptors in are brains that are helped by marijuana if you need it use it!

            sugar in food is mentally addictive, but you can quit or just keep eating it. Alcohol and cigarettes are physically adictive, far more so than cannabis, but they are completely legal like food. Your argument has no sense of perspective, whcih often happens when your really have no argument.

          • Donna Mattingly

            I have the sugar addiction, it’s murder! Having been raised Mormon, I was not much exposed to alcohol or pot – but they own Coke and it’s now ok to drink it. However, as a former I have now tried several things and none have proven to be addictive for me except sugar.

            CBD oil has been lifesaving for me to treat severe anxiety – but unlike smoking pot it does not give me an even more urgent desire for the sugar.

            Smh … A 1000 different strains for a 1000 different cures … This is y its illegal .. It stops Seizures actual it heals the brain period n I’m not speaking about the stuff I read but by my personal experience n what I experienced with my mom … My mom had dementia my mom had been a heavy cancer stick smoker for 40 years ( figs cause plax in the arteries, arteries travel through the body including the brain , get where I’m going with this) my mom didn’t get cancer ( which BTW CANNABIS KILLS CANCER) but did get dementia it came on slowly the drugs they gave her just made things worse she was on two meds before the dementia meds 4 mths after the dementia meds she was on 3 more meds for side effects 6 mths after that 3 more meds for more side effects … So I started doing my research ( just as I did when I was told I have seizures ) I found out not only would it stop the progression but it can reverse it so I started my mom on a joint a day … She stopped forgetting things n started remembering The confusion stopped the one doctor that came to the house mthly started cutting her drugs down even removed some from the rotation the head office didn’t like it so they removed that doctor n sent one who not only reinstated the doses but doubled them I kept on with the holistic route had her blood pressure from 270/165 to 120/100 which is normal she wasn’t feeling any dementia symptoms she was down to 3 meds from 12 She was doing great Until she got sick with pneumonia ( What Chem trails do to the elderly n small children it rains it down on us then the sun actives it the army calls it population control n affect those with respiratory issues) they took blood n saw that the meds were low level so they jack them up even the blood pressure meds My mom ended up dying in the hospital of a massive heart attack … As for me 6 yes ago diagnosed with seizures 72 a week If I took the drugs I was given not only would I still be on them but I’d be on 4 other meds if not more for side effects Cause one of the side affects is .. Induces migraines ( which I’ve had since childhood) into seizures ( wait aren’t the meds suppose to stop seizures ) to a stroke That just one side effect the others were just as peachy .. Today I can say I am seizure free for 2 yrs now without using the meds but with smoking cannabis two MRIs one showing multiple seizures n the other showing no seizures with two added bonuses Of no dead zones in my brain from the seizure n double the brain cell activity … I was told if I don’t take the meds I will never be cured he was wrong because if I took the drugs I’d never be healed … Now u can find him on YouTube saying cannabis heals the brain … If u think ur doctor has ur best interest in hand then u believe the brainwashing cause the medical profession n big pharma DGAFAY .. U being sick makes them BILLIONS of dollars a year

          You have no clue what you are talking about, I am sorry but oxycontin isn’t heroin(it is oxycodone in extended release format,), and Adderall isn’t meth (it is regular 4 different amphetamine salts, )
          Actually in America Methamphetamine is as legal as Adderall, under the brand name desoxyn, indicated for narcolepsy, chronic obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome, and sometimes even ADHD. In Canada Diamorphine(heroin) is used as a post operative pain medication in some cases.
          It’s a pipe dream to believe cannabis can fully replace opiod based pain killers, that is not to say cannabis can’t be used for pain, or even in conjunction with opiods to keep dosages acceptable. The problem that lies is the greedy capitalistic nature of American culture, we wouldn’t be having this opiate epidemic if Purdue pharmaceutical hadn’t in the guise of harm reduction replaced oxy-contin with oxy-neo(the didn’t do it out of care they did it because their patent was running out, paving the way for cheap Chinese fentanyl to be adulterated into heroin, that some of users switched to because of lack of availability of Oxycontin)

          • Beth gordon

            Oxycontin and heroin are both derived from the same plant. Oxycontin is a synthetic opiate, or opioid. They are the same.

        really? the medical community relies of facts? How about kjnowing that acetaminophen caused liver damage when combined with alcohol but allowing nyquil to be marketed for 15 years AFTER this was discovered. The facts eluded them for 15 years apparently while profits were taken.

        Surely the “addiction” to cannabis (bull), comes from the smoking of it, when people mix it with TABACO. Which is addictive. Surely then the addiction is to “wsmoking tabaco) and not the weed.

      • Dr. Richard Schulman

        Any stimulus that functions as reinforcement will almost invariably increase the probability of the behavior producing such a source of reinforcement. But, that doesn’t necessarily render it addictive in the way that alcohol, heroin, nicotine, and many other reinforcers can be. While a marijuana smoker may miss marijuana in its absence, there simply is no climbing the walls as in “addictive” substances. You simply miss marijuana as you would miss other non-addictive reinforcers. Let’s take hiking in the woods for clarification by way of an example. And, we’ll assume that a person finds this activity reinforcing. When he can’t engage in this favored activity, he miss
        es the activity. Does he exhibit behavior like a heroin addict during withdrawal? Of course not. The same is true of marijuana. One might speculate that the major reason that marijuana is not addictive is because of its long half-life

      they are not interested in cures for free they want profit hence those French who were left brain dead from experimental synthetic cannabinoids as they cant patent natural ones which are 100% safe and no way to overdose THEY DONT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT HEALTH wankers the lot of them Ted

    • Truth

      Are the antidepressants, that are prescribed regularly, addictive? They create withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking them, so the term “addictive” is being selectively applied, perhaps? I guess when you are told to take a certain medication for the rest of your life, the term “addictive” can be used quite loosely.

      • Yes, your body gets “used to” [addicted] the drug…that’s why you have to wean off of certain drugs.

    • Thomas Blank

      and yet they feel free to prescribe opiates almost like candy. more people died from prescription opiates(which are very addictive) last year than from heroin. the medical community needs to be weaned from big pharma. as far as “unknown long term effects” it sure doesnt stop them from prescribing opiates and SSRI’s, both far more damaging and dangerous than cannabis.

        science and nature both published fundamental articles on the reduction of inflammation and beta amyloid proteins in brain tissue(which are believed to cause altzheimers). With all the altzheimers going around in the US(millions) there are almost no effective treatments, let alone treatments that treat causes and not symptoms of the disease. Pigheaded stupidity and greed will delay the implementation of this, but many are already treatiing it.

  • Alissa,
    Thanks for the great read and the usual excuses from the Just Say NO Dr. crowd.

    How anyone could fear addiction from cannabis while treating an elderly person for Alzheimer’s is beyond me?

    To me any addictive feelings one may get from Cannabis is there body simply telling them to not stop doing good to me.
    I don’t think Fully Legal Cigarettes offer the same benefits…
    …like None!

    When I run out I NEVER think of robbing someone to get more, like say with Meth or Coke, I simply deal, replace and move on. I will admit to being “Grumpy” LOL

    There is a lot of great Medical Cannabis news coming out but sadly it must all be imported because of the lame ass prohibition still on Cannabis.

    The internet is helping to spread the truth about this most amazing plant, while the boneheads who know legalization is coming need to do “More Research” (The Stall Buzz Words).

    Gee, now even the American Cancer Society is seeing the differences’ between cigarettes and marijuana, it seems Cannabis may actually protect you from Cancer, things that make you go Hmm…

        Just read your comment – My Grandson whom I care for is 27 and has suffered from Juvenile Huntington’s Disease for 12 yrs. He gets relief and comfort from smoking cannabis and smoking cigarettes (separately). I am 74 yrs of age and when I am not longer fit enough to look after him, they will put my grandson in a home and take away the cannabis because it has a detrimental affect on the brain (he only has a few years left to live!) and it actually assists him positively. The care homes are all non-smoking now so he will not be able to smoke cigarettes either! How bloody cruel is this?

      Cannabis helps one deal with pain better than opioids. The side effects of analgesics are legion, they are addicting, and have to be taken on a scheduled basis, and if not taken as prescribed, the pain comes back with a vengeance. If you stop the use of cannabis, there are no withdrawal symptoms. One who has lived through the experience.

      • Si

        Same, I’m dealing with pretty bad neuropathic pain (paraplegic, broke back 5 years ago). None of the opiate pain killers I’ve been prescribed are as effective as cannabis. And considering all the health benefits, and lack of harmful effects.. it’s a bit of a no brainer. Hopefully it’ll be legalised soon :/

      When campaigning for a pro-pot gubernatorial candidate, The niche I
      carved out for myself was to contact every PA County Medical Society.
      The PA Medical Society is a sham, comprised of Two lobbyists and some
      pencil pushers. The phones might as well be answered by the AMA.
      That’s how about half the County Societies work, They’re names and
      phone numbers that ring in Harrisburg at the PA Medical Society. The
      remaining 20* Societies proved much different. About 50% were varying
      levels of positive, the other half weren’t receptive. I got into it
      because I have a background in research some, neurological. I have
      Dementia and hit the books looking for an answer for myself. My first
      call to a County Medical Society, I got the director. I got into it and
      He stopped me, “My mother has Alzheimer’s and I’ve been doing all the
      reading you have. How can I help?”. My Dr. was already way ahead of me
      when I broached the subject, as were my Neurologist and Ophthalmologist.

    There wasn’t any relevant information in this article about the effects of THC, except for one study that showed no improvement in Dementia patients. The medical marijuana that was given, could’ve been a low dose. But even three times per day, should’ve been enough to show some improvement. That is, if THC really does help the patients with their dementia. I’d advise something along the lines of “Hemp Oil”, made in the same manner as shown on Rick Simpson’s website, Phoenix Tears.com.

      Methylated folate (brand “deplin” with methlated B12) replaced Risperdal, which helped manage the behavior issues of Alzheimer’s

  • Pepper Mint Twist

    cannabis isn’t addictive. it is somewhat psychologically addictive for some, yes, but both cigarettes, alcohol and Rx Pain Meds are exponentially of more concern regarding addiction

  • SW

    My mother has Alzheimer’s. There is no current treatment. Our family is being decimated by this disease, and we would try anything that can potentially help our mother and her caregivers during the last years of Mom’s life. She is 80, so we are not concerned about potential long-term effects or addiction. At her age, the immediate challenges of managing this disease take priority. We fully support any regulations that aim to inhibit the misuse and exploitation of otherwise beneficial medical marijuana programs.

  • BabyGirl

    I have used marijuana to treat my husband who has Alzheimer’s he was not able to take the medications it made him very mean he was a Captain of a major airline and could not and did not take meds so his body was not used to pills.So a couple tokes a night for five years.The results were he had a better quality of life he didn’t get agitated he laughed more stayed active longer than the doctors said he would.Unfortunately he had to go into a nursing home where they drugged him up so bad he fell and broke his face up and hasn’t walked in two years nor has he spoken much sense.So I can say that marijuana was a lot better than any pill they have out today.I also read that if you have a family history of Alzheimer’s smoke up and you may protect your brain against the onset of Alzheimer’s later in life

    • Carrie Channing

      You did well. Thank you for sharing your first hand experience. So, it protects against Alzheimer’s and helps symptoms. Good to know. Will inform my children… It is in their bloodline.

    • E.Delgado

      There is a side effect with cannabis that puzzle’s, it does affect short term memory, so how can it be good for Alzheimer’s, and it does cause personality changes in some, ie. aggression, lowered inhibition, self control issues, they may be underlying personality traits, nonetheless, brought out by the use of cannabis, especially in immature individuals. Hope the good outweighs the bad.

      • Thomas Blank

        aggression a side effect? really? never saw that in 40 years.not once. alcohol? yeah plenty of aggression with that.

  • kim

    my dad is in the beginning of the severe stages of alzheimer’s/dementia…..from about 2pm onwards into the evening, he constantly walks around the house manhandling everything, including the little dogs! he is agitated, angry, aggressive. no fun at all. i have found that a carefully dosed cannabis cookie works wonders. if i give him one just as he begins to get squirrely he will hang out, relaxed…laughing and chatting. he still makes no sense at all, but without the cannabis he is non-communicative. the other avenue we have explored and come to enjoy….if he does not eat a cookie, he will smoke out of “da budha”…..a vaporizer. this we usually do after supper, six pm or so…..he settles into his favorite chair and we watch some “programs” on the television. he is calm, smiling and pleasant, if not even a bit randy!

    i will tell you i was somewhat hesitant about using cannabis with my dad. i have smoked recreationally since i was thirteen…..awhile ago! but my dad has been sober for forty years now. his behaviors in the afternoons and into the evenings became bad enough that i was considering putting him in a home…..he was getting to be just too much for me alone. cannabis certainly has it’s place in the medical field.

    oh, and ps…..i don’t even use medical grade marijuana……and i make my own edibles…cookies and such. i hope this info helps someone have a more pleasant evening!

    • Janet

      My father has dementia from a bad fall and he hit his head. After that he has gotten worse and worse. He is like Dr. Jeckal and Mr. Hyde. Okay one minute and angry the next minute. I am thinking about trying medical marijuana for him. His behavior in the late afternoon early evening is getting very hard to manage. He throws his walker at people and is very restless constantly getting up and down out of bed. We all need help!

      • Carrie Channing

        Cannabis plant is best. A friend grew it, when I put a snapped off, dried, raw bud in my mouth and slept with it tucked in there( snugged down between teeth and lip) after many months of coughing myself awake, I finally (and instantly) stopped coughing and slept beautifully. Joy of joys. Woke up rested, and feeling mellow and happy.
        (also See Rick Simpson oil; super healing potential.) Hemp oil too, has many health benefits and you can buy it in Tesco…

        Just chipping in with my anecdote, am not a doctor, this isn’t a scientific claim, just first hand experience feedback. 🙂

      • catchersmom

        Four drops underneath my Mom’s tongue gives her peace without sedating her like dangerous prescription Zanex. She has ALZ and her physician has tried every prescription available to treat her. My Mom and our family were living a nightmare until this treatment! It hasn’t cured her since she is in the late stages but it has made the disease much more bearable and kept her with her children & grandchildren instead of a nursing home.

        She does not act or seem “drugged” after a dose. It slows her mind down enough for her to relax and stop the constant fidgeting. She also sleeps much better.

        This disease is horrible for a patient but it is absolutely devastating for their loved ones. It is unbelievably cruel that a God created PLANT that WORKS WITHOUT NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS is forbidden to MOST patients.

        Our government should be ashamed!

    • Jenny Garrett

      Wow! I am so thrilled to read this about your dad. I applaud you for thinking outside of the box and doing this for your dad. I pray this option is available to all dementia and Alzheimer’s patients LEGALLY in all 50 states before the end of my nursing career.

    • Carrie Channing

      Sounds like trusting your instincts is serving you well. Bravo for using your own initiative. Frankincense, cannabis (hemp generally), colloidal silver are just a few of natures answers to many ailments. I’d say your dad is in good hands.

  • P. Vaughn

    I have been using cannabis oil for the last couple of years to try and keep MCI (mild cognitive impairment) from becoming Alzheimer’s. Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother etc, etc. all died form this disease. My Neurologist has been very pleased with how I am doing and will I continue unless it stops being helpfull. I decided to try it when the prescribed meds for Alzheimer’s were useless and I am so glad I did.

    • T Mills

      Hello P. Vaughn, My Mom is at the edge of the Alzheimer’s precipice and has decided that after “just saying NO” for all of these years, maybe she should try some CO. She lives in Seattle and I’m looking for a good clinic, and to help her get her card, but after we have that lined up, I’m not sure where to look for the correct dosage. How did you arrive at yours? If you could tell me all about it, I’d really appreciate it.

Please contact me at damd00002@aol.com. Thanks for any information.

      • Hicks

        2.5 mg THC is good place to start. That 1/4 of a 10 mg edible, so a very low dose.
        There was a great study just came out from Salk Institute that offers very plausible model.
        Important conclusion is to start at early stage, and it’s possible to double or triple duration of early stage, and delay late stage.

    I hope they try at least cannabis compounds as alternatives to antipsychotics for those who need them. The side effects are horrible (watched them on Mom) and there aren’t really alternatives now. Here’s one study that says it worked in a test of about 40 younger people…really I know it’s a small population but if they find a safe option it will be the first:

    My son just turned 13 he has EEG confirmed progressive dementia in the form of Alzheimer’s. All medical and genetic disorders including NPC3 have been ruled out. His rapid progression is crazy! 1 year before we even knew it was possible for kids to have dementia I had went on record many times saying he’s like an Alzheimer’s patient. He was diagnosed Childhood Onset Dementia in April 2014, in June 2014 his EEG was normal, April 2015 his EEG showed localized background slowing, September 2015 EEG showed asymmetrical background/foreground slowing, December 2015 his brain has slowed more. But, go figure we live in America and cannabis is illegal and no active research and go figure no help for children with Dementia.

      My impression is that EEG is used primarily to diagnose seizure activity. How is it applied to cases of dementia?

      I recently signed a petition to release parents serving prison sentences that used Cannabis to treat an illness.

      I know a Mother & Father that moved their family from Georgia to Colorado in order to provide their son with Cannabis treatments. The son developed Muscular Dystrophy after he was given the polio vaccine. Their children had to leave Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends…..just so their ill brother could use an HERB that actually works without negative side effects!

      Pharmaceutical companies make billions of dollars on disease.

      • Scott Clarkin

        Why even mention the polio vaccine, the anti-vax movement needs to stop.

        • catchersmom

          The pro vax movement will stop WHEN mercury and aluminum are removed from them. My child is vaccinated but I should have researched the ingredients before I vaccinated him. He was lucky that he did not have a problem but there are many that draw the short straw. Nobody in my family will EVER get another vaccine. These metals are linked to every neurological disorder in existence! Also, it doesn’t help that the country of India sued Bill Gates after HIS vaccine increased polio from 46 cases to almost 4000.

  • Craig

    I will try anything on my father. He verbally disrespects my mother and she takes it because she loves him. His dementia only gets worse. She gave me permission to dose him to control his violent mood swings. Personally he is opposed to it; but the only other choice is to put him in a home. They live where it’s taboo and highly punishable. I’ve driven it across country from California where I buy it in the form of candy, salad dressing, barbecue sauce and tinctures. Anyone who spends any time with this disease knows nothing can make it worse and any glimmer of help is sent from God. I have used it legally for my own use since it became legal in the late 90s. It controls my cholesterol, blood pressure and replaces injections I took several times a week to treat migraines. It has no addictive properties. I used it to stop smoking. Even if it did the average lifespan of a Alzheimer’s patient is 8 years. Addiction is the last thing anyone should argue. Thanks for this information.

  • Paul Venneman

    Anybody else notice how easy it is to debunk these statements about addictiveness and long term effects ?
    Small hint : there are people called rastafari who use cannabis religiously from early age till death…

  • IFLS

    Data says about 9% of those who smoke are addicted and 17% are if they start smoking when young (see http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana/marijuana-addictive.) So a majority of people will find they are not addicted and will find a majority that have a similar experience. But that doesn’t mean that some will be addicted. So individuals vouching that weed isn’t addictive from their own experiences are ignoring the presence of a problem for others. It may seem non problematic to be addicted to weed but it interferes with daily functioning (eg diminished motivation, memory for days after smoking, and judgements) which is problematic for education and employment. This is also hard for people living with the addicted person. The risk of addiction may be worth it for Alzheimers particular for the elderly who have symptoms that harm the person and others. But to ignore the probability and costs of addiction would be medically unethical.

    • Hicks

      BS.

      Years ago I sent the world class pot-heads (think Hank Williams, Jr) to offshore platforms in middle of Gulf of Mexico, and none ever had problem leaving pot behind.
      However, if they ran out of cigarettes, they went nuts, and would cause $1500 damage to equipment, and then ask helicopter pilot to bring carton of Marlboros.
      They still did it after we added $500 cigarette delivery charge. A man that pays $550 for a carton of smokes is a junkie. The pothead that smokes all week on his time off, and then lays it down for 2 weeks while working isn’t.

    I think the medical “community” might have more success if they tried something other than THC pills. I don’t mean people need to smoke 5 joints a day, but maybe just try some other form. For example maybe try some THC vapor or a few bowls each day. A couple bowls before every meal might help. An good edible, cookies or brownies, in the morning can have you high until the afternoon.

  • Andrew James Hashman

    Rediculas to try to judge effective use as a medicine at 1.5 mg dose. Need to be at leat 50mg 3 times a day to improve function and mental state. I have seen it… use a realistic dose of cannabis doctors if your going to do studies… 100 mg to 1000mg is a daily dose of cannabis not 1.5… of course there will be no change with that small of a dose…

    • Hicks

      Low doses about 2.5 mg of THC is good place to start according to paper below. It protects brain cells against toxic Amyloid Beta proteins and inflammation, reducing cell damage and by 80-100%. I’ve seen no papers that suggest anything close to suggested levels. This isn’t to get granny stoned silly, it’s to help protect her brain cells, and reduce damage rate so she can stay in the Early stage for 5-10 years instead of 2-3 years. You move from “Early Stage AD” to later stage when perhaps 25% of brain cells are damaged/dead.

    I’m debating trying this with my mother. The Drs. give her meds that do absolutely no good at all. She hits the floor running at 530am.. it would be earlier but I make her stay in bed. She barely sleeps and that means neither do i. When I say it’s bedtime..she immediately goes into panic mode wanting to “go find a house she can sleep in.” Then she is obsessed with the bathroom about every 25-40 min all night long. I’m ready to pull my hair out with all the useless..side effect inducing crap they are giving her.

    • catchersmom

      Same with my Mom. She stayed a wake all night constantly tugging at her pajamas. She would go several days without sleep. Her mind would not slow down so she could rest. She is a different person after four drops of Cannabis Oil (: It gives her peace. This has kept her at home with us instead of in a nursing home.

  • Adams Kate

    hello to you all, my name is Adams Kate , i am from Vegas here in

    united state, i wish to tell you all, how i find a doctor that cure me
    from HIV , which i had for three years with his natural herbal medicine
    he gave to me , it all went this way, i was internet that very day when i
    saw a comment of a woman called MARIA KATRINA from united kingdom
    sharing her testimony about how this very doctor cured her of HIV, and
    he also cured AIDS,CANCER, DIABETES, STROKE too, but i never really
    believed but i just decided to give it a try and i contacted Dr Aloma ,
    so he told me everything i needed to know and what to do to get cured
    and free from my HIV issue, so i went straight and make provisions for
    the herbs which he used to prepare medicine for me,i applied the
    medicine and just to see that the exact day which Dr Aloma said i we
    be cured i was felling good and healthy at once, my strength was
    regained i went for check up in the hospital and my family doctor told
    me i am free from HIV my body came back to normal, this was the
    greatest miracle that has happened to me in my life, and i promise Dr
    Aloma that i we share his good work to the world, these are few i can
    say about this Dr Aloma , i went with my family to thank him for his
    great work and solution in my life, wish i never expected this was
    possible, I we like you to contact him on his email Address:
    Dralomaherbscure@gmail.com or dralomaherbalcure@outlook.com if you have
    any health issue i
    believe this doctor can help you out as well

    Given marijuana impairs a person’s memory and thought processing ability it is extremely unlikely that marijuana would be an effective medication for a person with dementia.

      My best friend has smoked 49 years, and he computes fractional powers (like 3.7 to 5/7 power) faster than you can do on calculator. He memorized complete table of 1000 logarithms to 5 places to do math fast. I still can do Calculus, nuclear physics and programing after 40 years. It really doesn’t make you stupid unless you really overdo it.

      Regarding question. During the early stage, Alzheimer’s Disease slowly kills about 50 million brain daily due to toxic effects of Amyloid Beta, inflammation, and a runaway immune death spiral.

      THC is a neuroprotectant with anti-inflammatory properties, so it breaks the death spiral of most cells, reducing daily death rate from maybe 50 million brain cells down to 10 million/day, so the early stage of disease may last 10 years instead of 2 years.

      With AD, the loss of memory and mental impairment is result of billions of dead brain cells.

      Don’t trust me. Read a summary of the paper, and then read paper itself.

    my father is in the early stages of AD. He still recognizes everyone and normal life is ok, but, he forgets a lot of little stuff that used to be easy. His “mental checklists” are leaving things out. He can’t remember how to drive to his doctors office, something he’s done a lot. He went out to feed the animals one night, fed all but one, why? He couldn’t say. He doesn’t trust himself to drive. He has trouble remembering how to get the trailer hooked up to the truck. Could CBD help prevent AD from progressing?. My mom said right now, the way he is, he’s ok, he just needs to be supervised. If we could get the AD to stop where it’s at……that would be awesome! Pops will never smoke, but, he’s open to the idea of taking something orally. Any input would be helpful.

  • Jake

    “Just because a drug can be effective, doesn’t mean it can be safely used by anyone” this is kind of an ironic argument to make, regarding the fact that doctors are throwing patients enormously high doses of pain killers left and right when marijuana is the least harmful “drug” out of them all.

    • Paul

      Extremely valid point. My Alzheimers family member had bouts of rage that I spoke to her geropsychiatrist about. He reluctantly offered Risperidone as a solution because of something like 1 in 100 users die. Fortunately we made some dosage adjustments to her medications which seem to have resolved it for now.

      I’m against using illegal drugs and getting high, but think legitimate medical use is appropriate. Needless to say, medical marijuana seems like a safer and possibly more effective option than Risperidone.

      People shouldn’t have to move states for effective and safer medical treatment.

  • It should be pointed out that the biggest hurdle of this incredibly safe and productive herb is not any lied about side effects, (not one person has died, the only real side effect is Euphoria), is that Doctors have been trained to sell Pills. The national laws are in place to stop actual testing by keeping Cannabis as a schedule one drug.. which was only in Answer to the Supreme Court overturning Cannabis Prohibition in 1969! (Leary vs US). Citizens are waking up to this Kill them with Chemo for PROFIT, over Cure them with Cannabis rule so many have taken. We are sick and tired of being played the fool.

  • Candice Dunsmore

    My mother is living proof that it does ease the symptoms of dementia. She has lived with MS for over 30 years and is currently in her 11th year with global dementia. She has tried every pill known to man and still she would scream day and night. She was scared, paranoid and her anxiety was horrendous. There is nothing more the doctors could offer. Until we decided to try this oil. Now she only screams when the oil wears off. As soon as the oil kicks in she has a pretty decent day for being end stage.

  • Louis Pierre

    In 2007 at just 33 years old, my dreams were abruptly eclipsed by the cold, hard reality of 1.2 cm tumors, endless visits to oncologists and having to face my own mortality at a young age.i decided to face my illness head on, with a positive spirit, and with support from my family and my husband. To protect myself from infertility, i opted for radiation treatment instead of chemotherapy. All was well for a short while, but two years the cancer returned. Two weeks before my wedding, my doctors gave the bleak diagnosis: stage four breast cancer with six to nine months left to live. It appeared my fight was over. The warrior in me had been tested many times in her 33 years. But when i was told my cancer was unbeatable, and it was time to set my affairs in order, the warrior inside me rose up to meet the impossible with a spirit of hopeful defiance. i leveled a steady gaze at my team of grieving oncologists and replied, “This is not my life. I will not die, because I was meant for more.” True to my word, i have done much more. Rather than living in the shadow of a stage four cancer diagnoses,, so a friend of my introduce me to hemp oil and how to use it, for just few weeks am cancer free,. here is the email address of any assistance or to make your order……..email:louispierre325@gmail.com

    My brother is thinking of giving my mother this who has mixed dementia and alzhimers.I was very dubious but after reading up on it am changing my views.My worry is he has said it will cost £1400.00 for the dosage she will need.How do we know before paying up that this is a reputable person he’s buying it from and does this price seem right.

  • Steve Brown

    A miracle cure .

  • Kreis Alexander

    Good Morning, My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 Throat cancer last fall and shortly thereafter started a rigorous 35/3 radiation/chemo treatment regimen. As others will attest, it is a very painful ordeal with long lasting side effects coming from the radiation primarily. Radiation has been called, rightly so, the gift that keeps on giving. Stan is two(2) months into his recovery and he now believes that he moved too quickly into his cancer treatment protocol. He lives in Oregon which gives him access to medical cannabis. He is supplementing his treatment with the Rick Simpson cannabis oil and wishes he had tried it before now, it was provided to by him and started treatment immediately He is now CANCER FREE.contact him via email:rickcannabiscentre@gmail.com .cannabis does have curative properties and that it receives negative press due to the stigma of marijuana. He does not smoke the cannabis, rather he ingests concentrated cannabis oil. God bless you Rick.

    Sincerely

    Kries

  • Debbie

    so they are so worried about marijuana being addictive, but not the other pharmaceuticals that can damage kidneys, liver cause constipation and whatever else…. doesn’t make sense, marijuana wont hurt you…..

  • Roland

    I also believed marijuana to be harmless after 40 years of almost daily use. I experienced a mental addiction and experienced physical withdrawal symptoms when quitting. I do not believe it caused any medical problems with the exception of sinus drainage each morning and a light cough when abusing. I experienced memory loss when under the influence only and became more emotional as time progressed . I do not believe occasional use is harmful in adults, not so with young people. I believe we will see more medical uses when the medical community is allowed to study further. In conclusion, be concerned if you feel the need to get “high” frequently. Eventually you will no longer get “high” you will just become lethargic. Simply stating my opinion. 🙂

    • Hicks

      Sorry for your difficulties. Nothing is totally harmless, but 40 years of daily pot is usually less damaging than 40 years of booze. Moderation in all things, including moderation.

      The questions before us are whether cannabis is less harmful than Alzheimer, which is clearly no for most people, and can it help. Recent studies from Salk Institute suggest low doses of THC(1-2 mg/day) can slow the progression of early stage AD by a number of years, so it seems an easy decision to me.

  • joe bryme

    Hello I’m Patricia Ann from USA, My father was diagnosed of Lung cancer in July 2001, the doctor had told us that we had only 1 year to live. I thought there was nothing to be done, I thought his life was about to end until i caught wind of the special cannabis oil. A rare commodity indeed, I searched high and low for the oil to no avail until i met MR.RICK SIMPSON who cure the cancer.You can Email him Via : ricksipsoncanabisoil@gmail.com

    i m addicted to LOOOOVE .. gimme a break

  • Paula

    I just found out I’m in the early onset of Alzheimers, and I’ll try anything

    • Hicks

      IF POSSIBLE, START TAKING LOW DOSES OF THC ( 1-5 mg per day)!
      A new study suggests that AD is caused by Amyloid Beta, a misfolded protein that causes inflammation, causing production of proteins that summand the storm troopers of the immune system, which causes more even inflammation as it attacks the nerve cell, leading the cell to death spiral in a short time unless you can stop the cycle. THC has neuroprotective effects that reduces inflammation, and also reduces the misfolding of Amyloid Beta. During the Early stage of AD, the brain cells randomly enter the death spiral due to a number of factors, such as age, stress, a possible blocking of the AEA, the brain’s natural Cannabinoid similar to THC. It’s during the early phase that mostly irreversible effects occur over a period of several years.

      The paper below is first to offer coherent model of AD that offers answers questions about reason for long term progression of AD, and why it’s similar to CTE(concussions), Parkinson, ALS and prion diseases. More important, it suggests why THC would help, and explains seeming rarity of AD among pot smokers.

      TLDR;
      I) The study suggests that THC protects nerve cells in a number of ways, and reduces cell death rate by factor of 3 to 5.

      II) The Early Stage of AD could slow early stage progression from 2 – 10 years , and just possibly stop disease in tracks.

      The paper below is first to offer coherent model of AD that offers answers questions about reason for long term progression of AD, and why it’s similar to CTE(concussions), Parkinson, ALS and prion diseases. More important, it suggests why THC would help, and explains seeming rarity of AD among pot smokers.

      You only need low doses, of THC (1 – 2.5 mg/day). Marinol is a prescription version of THC that’s available in doses of 1 to 10 mg THC that should be perfect. It’s only $2 a pill because its been around for decades, and it’s a CIII which *should* be available for off-label use, but your doctor will likely be afraid to prescribe it. There should be very little impairment at that level, and you may be unable to feel it.

      Print study below, try to read it, and bring to your doctor. Tell him you really want to slow the early stage progression as much as possible, and that you worry that every day without *effective treatment* is more irreversible damage. Ask him to read the study, check the laws, and consider prescribing 1 mg daily for a month at to see how it works. If he says no, ask him whether he thinks it will be harmful because you have trouble seeing the downside of it. You might also ask if he 20% of his patients with AD were pot smokers, or whether they are underrepresented due to protective effects of THC.

      Ask if Medical Marijuana is an option, or whether you can to move to Colorado to treat your AD. Bless you, and hope it goes well.

      Here is study from Salk Institute, a top research center:
      “Amyloid proteotoxicity initiates an inflammatory response blocked by cannabinoids”

  • Paula

    Doesn’t matter if addictive or not if your have a terminal illness can’t hurt

  • Sue

    Personally I don’t think it’s addictive. But even if it were it’s the height of lunacy to cite that as a reason not to treat a seniors dementia with it. Seriously? What have these people been smoking?

  • Steve

    Marijuana is not addictive, and stay away from things coming from the pharmaceutical industry that is readily available in its natural form. I could believe that the pill form could be addictive because pharmaceutical companies like it that way.

    You can go to a pot shop in Colorado and buy the exact strain you need, pay less and know they are not putting extra things in it to make you addicted. They are highly regulated, but huge pharmaceutical companies are not highly regulated. This is how it works in America right now. If you have money you can lobby the government to leave you alone, while the small business gets all the negative attention.

  • Stevmg

    Ever try to come off a beta-blocker used for hypertension if being switched to a calcium channel blocker (both are standard therapies for hypertension)? Impossible! The anxiety feelings and tachycardia with heart pounding sensations are mind-boggling! Yet beta blockers are not so-called addictive drugs and are not on the DEA control roster. The tachycardia and anxiety sensations are normal physiologic effects of the withdrawal. Probably Catapres could be used to mollify the distressing symptoms.
    Correct, the definition of “medically addictive” is unclear.

    • Scott Clarkin

      They are not psychoactive, but rather physically addictive, sorta like anti-depressants.
      Also psychological withdrawal can manifest in psychosomatic symptoms, almost like a placebo effect as your neurotransmitters readjust.

  • Hollim Frankly

    ATTENTION PLEASE i was obviously in shock and when my dad came to pick me up and I told him I had bad news he joked ‘It’s not AIDS is it?’. The rest of that car journey we hardly spoke a word. I was tested positive for HIV two days later at Salisbury Hospital. I was told I’d die in four or five years’ time, but the worst part was being told I could never have children or a partner, which upset me more than having any disease. I just couldn’t understand how my boyfriend could’ve had AIDS as he’d told me he was a virgin when he met me. But a couple of months later he came back to the village and over several drinks confessed he was bisexual and had also slept with prostitutes. My head reeling, I didn’t say anything and stumbled home. I’m taking just three HIV pills a day now and my HIV really doesn’t feel like a big issue at all. But so many people still don’t have a clue about HIV. I remember being asked to give a talk at the local secondary school, but parents objected as they didn’t want their kids exposed to the topic, like I would somehow contaminate them. My mum has been told by an HIV adviser to wash my clothes separate to theirs and store my toothbrush on the other side of the sink, habits I assured her weren’t necessary. Of course back then we didn’t have the internet, so relied on leaflets and talking to people on the National Aids Helpline and the Terence Higgins Trust, who were amazing. I had to take 18-20 pills a day, which I hated, but I knew I had no choice to avoid the death-sentence I’d been told I’d been given.
    My life was reaally a sad story itself to trekll and i will never in life forget the Great man Dr, Gossy Wilsonodia which God have used to change my life and all that has happen to me , I understand that only few will believe in this story and i want any one out there living with this deadly diseasse to contact Dr Gossy Wilsonodia Email : drgossysolutioncenter@gmail.com … for his herbal herbs remedy and i assure you that you will live to tell the testimonyt. i just want to use this platform to thank the god of Dr. Gossy Wilsonodia for using his send man to heal me from that deadly diseasse / virus.

    Here is a fact—- PRESCRIPTION NARCOTICS ARE HIGHLY ADDICTIVE and our medical “community” doesn’t have a problem with legalizing those AT OUTRAGEOUS PHARMACEUTICAL COSTS to patients! Cigarettes are HIGHLY ADDICTIVE AND CAUSE CANCER and THEY are legal.

    My Mother is 69 years old and she has Alzheimer’s Disease. Regarding addiction – my Mom has smoked cigarettes since she was 16 years old and NOW she tells us she doesn’t smoke so the “ADDICTION propaganda” is absurd when pertaining to Alzheimer’s patients due to the deterioration of the mind that causes short term memory loss! My Mother has FORGOTTEN about addictive cigarettes.

    My Mother is unhappy, belligerent at times and rarely sleeps. Her physicians want us to fill her body full of Zanex – another HIGHLY addictive prescription medication! My family is doing EVERYTHING we can to keep our elderly Mother AT HOME WITH US instead of dumping her in a Nursing Home!

    If Cannibis Oil can keep my Mother at peace and in turn with her family until she passes away WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS?

    This fight is about taking profit from physicians and pharmaceutical companies! They don’t care that diseased patients are suffering when there are alternative treatments that CAN give them some peace without dangerous side effects!

    IT IS SICKENING!!!!

  • jessice

    Am from USA, am here to give my testimony about how i got my HIV disease and how I was flew from it quickly after having on trust on my spell doctor who cured me immediately. Since the year I married to the man I did love because my parents false me to marry him, I have not been enjoying my relationship and sex life with him, he do spend time on his work and don’t have time for me sometimes, he do sleep at his work and also do carry women’s because he has the money to spent but does’t spend it on me. So I was so jealous to the extent that I can’t even control my anger and I decided to start cheating on him with my ex-boyfriend, because my husband do not always be at home expect on weekends, I have sex with him without protection, after some months been in love with my ex-boyfriend I was so sick and I decided to go to test and I found that I was HIV positive I feel so sad and was ashamed because I did know how to open up to my husband I hate before, my ex-boyfriend denied me and when my husband found about what was going on he divorced me and i was ill for good 3 years i went to many places for solution but there was no solution. so one day I was asking GOOGLE some question,s how I can get a cure and how i can get some medications which I will be taking to my own surprise they brought one email out named draihomuhelpcenter@gmail.com that this powerful man can cured HIV AIDS positive,I did not believe about the cure before but i took the email and searched it on GOOGLE and i found many good testimonies about him, people have been giving more testimonies about him so i contacted him about my situation, he told me all the procedures which I will take, And I did before I knew what was happening he called me and told me to go for an HIV test which i did and when the result was out I was HIV negative. Thanks to draihomuhelpcenter, now as I am giving this testimony I am now fully settle down with my husband now and we both loved ourselves, I give this testimony for people around that was in my shoes so that they can also be cured like me, so if you also need a solution also you can email him at draihomuhelpcenter@gmail.com,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • Tezcumpapa

    The primary concern for me is not addiction, and the strains used 20 years ago are not the strains used today…unless you grow your own, using heirloom seeds. The products used now are genetically modified (big surprise, I know), the varients used and being introduced are stronger, more “flavorful” with a THC content that everyone crows about. It being touted as a miracle cure all to the largest population of type 2 diabetes in history. Why? Don’t you even want to know why? Ask questions! In a few short years you won’t even care, nor will your children, nor their children. Ask questions!

    • Scott Clarkin

      If you replaced all the organic food with GMO food then the output yield would lead to enough food to end world hunger. Before jumping to conclusions about the strength of cannabis know that most growers don’t have the education level to genetically modify strains, and research has been limited by the DEA. The reason that the cannabis is so much stronger is from revolutions in growing technique.
      You talk about the old strains not being around anymore , but that just isn’t true, plenty are and the new strains are descendants of older strains, and the mixing of different properties between the two different subclass’s indica and sativa. By your logic people of mixed race are bad, because they are not “natural”.
      Then coming back to actual potency, think of it like alcohol , you maybe be able to drink 12 Coors lite, but you would drink 12 beers with an abv of 8%, you would only need six, and you would get more intoxicated off the same amount of volume because you are consuming it faster. But cannabis is non toxic unlike alcohol, and actually the most dangerous part of it the inhalation of combusted plant material, so using a stronger potency strain you are putting less pressure on the lungs.
      Sure there are always gunna be some people who over do it, but people can act responsibly, and deserve the right to have the choice.
      Sometimes we need to learn to be less science-phobic.
      Also I forgot to mention, the strong smells that “are put in the weed” as you put it, are known as terpenes and often have synergistic medical effects when combined with THC or other cannabinoids.

    The war on drugs has injected irrational fear, racism,  violence, disrespect and corruption of law enforcement into our society for decades  all for the political purpose of a bigoted Republican Party

    Report: Aide says Nixon’s war on drugs targeted blacks, hippies
    By Tom LoBianco, CNN

    “You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities,” Ehrlichman said. “We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

    The war on drugs began as a race war to disenfranchise minorities and continues to be so today with the lethal combination of poverty 

    End the bigoted War on Drugs and Immigrants with reasonable regulations that promote Healthcare and end Warfare

    If any of you think that addiction is something that is only caused by substances with physically addicting properties like alcohol and opiates, then you know nothing about addiction. The “drug” of choice doesn’t even need to be something that has been ingested or inhaled or shot up.

    Anything that acts on the brain’s levels of serotonin, dopamine etc. is potentially addicting. That includes things like gambling, running, eating, sex, and a lots more – including weed. This is NOT propaganda. Compulsive gamblers and heroin addicts’ brain scans look almost identical when they are getting their “highs.” And, it has nothing to do with willpower. People go to their graves trying to rely on willpower to quit addictions.

    I have members of my family who are weed addicts. I also have friends who are. I am NOT talking about smoking some weed at a party or every once in a while with friends. The people I’m talking about smoke it every day, multiple times a day.

    I DO believe that it should be legalized so people will have a chance of at least knowing what they’re getting. I do NOT believe all of the old reefer madness BS. I DO believe what I’ve seen, however. Let’s just call a spade a spade, here – people can and DO get addicted to weed.

    • Scott Clarkin

      People can and do getting addicted to everything, but really you can’t compare a physical addiction to a mental addiction because usually physical addictions are co-morbid with psychological addiction. Let us look at gambling, some one stops they are not gunna be puking and shitting their guts out for a week, freezing their asses off having cold and hot flashes. Same with “so called sex addiction”, which is often just used as a get out of jail free card when someone cheats, these “sex addicts” aren’t gunna go through withdrawal, they aren’t gunna feel like they are dying. Don’t get married if you can’t keep it in your pants

    wisdom My story has to do with the healing power of Rick Simpson cannabis oil.”My sister Khloe, age 65, was diagnosed with Bone Cancer on the inside of her backbone 2 years ago, which had metastasized from breast cancer she didn’t know she had. I prayed for a total healing with NO operation, no chemo and no radiation. not everyone has had the experience of knowing Rick Simpson as their Healer… but they can! Rick Simpson, father of all natural hemp.
    May the grace of God be upon you Rick for his good work and courage; and with his Hemp we are healed”. Early this year i traveled to U.S. to visit a good friend of mine when i heard that rick was around so i traveled to him and meet him one on one to purchase the healing oil from him,.. now am so happy and filled with joy that my sister is no longer a cancer patient and she’s completely healed with his miracle healing oil. The doctor himself confirmed to us on Tuesday last week that my sister Khloe is fully OK. No sign of cancer in her bone or breast again….Wow…Am so happy that my family and I have been thanking Rick for his good work of saving this world with his cannabis oil. Please people i don’t know how to thank him enough so am dropping his contact Email;(rickcannabisoil23@gmail.com) i am begging if you can spear 5 minutes of your time and please help me to thank him, he is truly a hero of this world and i pray for God’s strength and love upon him

  • catchersmom

    My family & I literally watch our Mom become a different person after four drops of Cannabis Oil underneath her tongue. She has ALZ and she becomes very agitated and belligerent until we dose her (:

    She would stay awake all night in bed & tug on her pajamas constantly. She would also go several days without sleep until her physician made us give her Zanex which we hated because it sedated her so heavily. It was like her mind could not slow down. It was heartbreaking & we cried often. One of my Mom’s health care professionals told us about Cannibis Oil (off the record) and it has truly been a MIRACLE for all of us. It gives our Mother peace WITHOUT sedating her and it has kept her at home with her children & grandchildren instead of a nursing home.

    Nobody in my family has used Cannabis so we weren’t sure what to expect. At first, we attempted to get our Mom to smoke a tiny bit since she used to smoke cigarettes but she forgot she smoked and refused to smoke the Cannabis so we threw it away! Haha! It was a small amount.

    It makes no sense to prescribe Zanex and other extremely addictive prescriptions with PROVEN dangerous side effects to a patient and prohibit them from using a God created herb that actually WORKS without ANY negative side effects.

    It is absolutely sickening that this treatment is blocked for mass profit.

    I am a believer in what goes around….comes around and denying patient’s this treatment is inhumane!

    The Salk Institute reported in the June 2016 issue of Aging and Mechanisms of Disease that THC eliminated amyloid plaques and inflammation from lab grown human neurons. Why is the medical and scientific community ignoring this Alzheimer’s discovery? http://www.salk.edu/cannabinoids.

    My grandmother has been suffering from the mentally and physically crippling effects of Alzheimer’s & Dementia for the last 15 years. Nothing had worked as treatment for the last three years so the doctors have be focusing on keeping her comfortable until her time comes and the diseases have run their course.

    I was brought to the point of action just shy of three years ago when I went to visit her in the rehab facility she has been stuck in for the last 5 years, and will be in for the rest of her days. The rehab facility informed us that she was out of control and had been “difficult” for the past few weeks; repeatedly rude to the attendants and thrown personal item.
    Now a bit of a back story: My grandmother had a stroke and is essentially paralyzed on one side, had the hip on that side removed completely, and through it all has stay calm, kind, and sweet (per her usual). So when I heard she had been repeatedly rude to anyone I knew that something was wrong.

    She has not recognized me in years(or anyone for that matter), and believes I am her daughter that passed away 30 years ago. When the time came for my next visit I decided to take action and to try something new. So I made my Nana some of her favorite cookies with an extra special ingredient…Cannabis butter. I made sure to get the best, most discrete (lack of scent/heavy taste) product I could find as to not alert anyone else. Took them to her rehab facility and watched her eyes light up at the sight of the special treats (anything would be better than hospital food). She ate two cookies and I waited. After about 30 minutes she showed faint signs of lucidity. After about an hour, SHE KNEW WHO I WAS! Her lucid period was short lived, only about 30 minutes, but it was my Nana! Not the veritably vegetable I had been visiting over the years. Since that day, when I go visit her, I take some kind of cannabis treat and watch the magic unfold in front of my eyes.

    So say what you will but cannabis works. It may not cure the disease, but it gives me hope that there is a remedy in the not so distant future and maybe, just maybe, Marijuana can play a part in that. Even if it is just glimpses of lucidity, I’ll take it…and she loves it.

    The sad thing this is old news, I’ve been telling people this for over 6 years. Fuck the DEA, they are just simply over stepping their bounds everywhere they go, and preventing social and medical progress while they are at it. The endocannabinoid system was only discovered in 1990, you have to wonder just how much better shape the world would he in if we had discovered it at the same time as the endorphin system.

    Since the endocannabinoid system effects so many autonomous functions of the body, like appetite, sleep, and mood,
    With gene therapy targeting the endocannabinoid system I doubt the obesity epidemic would still be around(at least for people with medical insurance,)

    Also, can we please stop using the word Marijuana, it’s a disrespectful term used to outlaw the plant in the first place using racial prejudice. It’s Cannabis, hell you don’t even need the medical part of the term when you call it cannabis, because even when recreational it is treating people underlying conditions.

  • Donn Jones

    I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer’s Disease about 2 years ago. I could see that I was becoming someone I didn’t care for very much. It’s an insideous disease. Family members suggested I try medical marijuana and see if there was any benefit. Many of the concerns I was having with regards to AD didn’t seem to matter quite so much after I took 2 puffs. My wife noticed a marked decrease in aggression and agitation. I don’t care so much for the “high” affects. It’s just a side affect that you have to put up with if you choose to treat with medical marijuana. We, us patients, have very few options in our treatment. It offers some relief to know that some options are opening up.

  • handytrim

    I’m a little sceptical about these studies as I am making an educated guess and betting they used some form of synthesised THC which has been proven less effective and even harmful compared to the ‘good’ stuff. There is also the little matter of the entourage effect which basically amounts to all the compounds working in synergy to effectively treat various conditions. The compounds can be adjusted for each differing condition but it is now believed cannabis best works in its entirety instead of separated (and definitely not synthesised) compounds. I wonder why the pharmaceutical industry is still so vehemently against cannabis and why there is currently so much interest in the only pharma company (GW Pharmacueticals) who has managed to pull the wool over everybody’s eyes with their patented medicines that are claimed to only contain elements of cannabis when in reality they contain all compounds found within the plant.

    Sorry, but I trust the medical community about as much as I trust politicians. Greed is a very powerful drug in this world and many supposed doctors and scientists are hooked on it.

    The FDA , DEA, state lawmakers are in the pockets of wealthy drug companies. Police are profiting off prohibition. Cannabis has always been a healthy plant demonized in the 30’s. Americans hated blacks and mexicans who used cannabis and slept with white women . Recent reasearch of 9/18/2016 shows the marijuana can cure Alzheimers

  • Stacey Tucker

    I smoked for thirty years, then over a dozen years ago, I thought I had come down with a very bad case of pneumonia. After my wife nagged me for a week, I finally saw the doctor. I was diagnosed with severe COPD. They were amazed that I had waited so long, years in fact, before going to a doctor over it. They gave me three years tops before it killed me. That was thirteen years ago and I am still living. I don’t do much, because I no longer have the ability. I can no longer walk, am always hooked up to an oxygen air line, and my body is starting to shut down. There are times that I can’t remember my wife’s name, even though we have been married for nearly forty years. Truth be told, there are times that I truly wish I had died years ago when I could still walk, talk, play with my grandkids, but GOD decided that it might be better for me to live a bit longer. My wife asks me, when I am having a bad day, if I want to go to the hospital. I always decline, reminding her that I do not want to die in the hospital, but to die at home with the people that I love most. Hospitals can no longer do anything good for me. Even Duke Hospital admits that they do not know why I am still living. GOD purpose will eventually be known until i found testimonies of Great Dr. Lusanda in an online research and on Facebook, Like anybody would be, I was very skeptical about contacting him, but i later did email him and he started the remedies for my health. Thank God, i am cured from COPD by the herbal medication I received from him. I never thought that COPD can be cured, from the bottom of my heart I’m truly grateful,i pray you have long life so you can help many more people on earth with your herbal medical support.

    I believe if there is any possibility of relieving stress brought on by any disease with THC, then the patient should be informed and if possible give consent and be treated. I prefer the oil distillation method. Drops under the tongue work wonders for insomnia. I am an R.N. and in 1980 worked on a medical oncology floor in LA where marijuana cigarettes were dispensed for nausea (pre no smoking bans). I’m happy that THC is being used for purposes that help people with chronic or terminal illness.

  • Jamie

    I can only speak anectdotally, but THC drops absolutely changed the quality of life for my mother with late stage Alzheimer’s. She would dip into her sundowning behaviors which included deep cyclical ruminations about where she was, what’s happening to her, worry that she is going crazy, etc., and the THC drops GREATLY reduced the stress and anxiety she experienced. It was incredible, really. Her quality of life was definitely increased by the use of the drops. As a family member/caregiver desperate to relieve her emotional pain and distress, this became an option due to lack of “traditional” medical choices. She became more functional and interactive and peaceful without being over sedated with pharmaceuticals.

    Some early info had those who claimed marijuana was a preventative, and even a virtual cure. If there’s evidence of benefits, the user should be able to decide if addiction (IF that’s the case) to marijuana is preferable to possibly developing Alzheimer’s.

  • Magret Wellwork

    I am Margret Welwork from New Mexico.

    I’m very happy for the great help that

    Dr.Galaxy rendered to me, I am here to give my testimony about Dr.Galaxy

    who helped me in my life. I was infected with HIV 2 years ago, i went

    to many hospitals for cure but there

    was no solution, until one faithful day , i saw a blog online where

    someone said Dr.Galaxy cured a woman who also had HIV infection and then i

    saw yet again another woman saying Dr.Galaxy cured her of Herpes and that he could cure any illness.

    so i decided to give it a try and contacted Dr.Galaxy, I told him i was HIV positive for 2

    years, He said he can heal me if i can trust him. He asked for my photo

    and He also asked me to send money for the treatment to prepare the

    medicine. I did as he said and He sent some herbal medicine to me in

    the states. After 7 days of using His medicine i went to the hospital and i

    was tested HIV negative, i couldn’t believe, i went to four different

    hospitals and the test were all negative. It is very surprising but it

    is the truth. Now I believe all these Testimonies about him on the

    internet,

    he is truly a great man, this is his Email: (drgalaxyherbal.spiritualhome@gmail.com)

    follow me on facebook lets chat, my facebook name is Margret Welwork.

  • Scott Bates

    Addictive?? I used to smoke it like they weren’t going to grow it! Gave it up when drug testing came along and it wasn’t worth the consequences. If it was addictive, after years of smoking it, where the hell is the withdraw? I stopped in the 80’s, shouldn’t that shit be kicking in by now? How much of a creeper effect does it have? I CALL BULLSHIT ON THE ADDICTIVE EXCUSE. Narrow minded bigots who still believe the “it’s bad” lie. The only thing in danger from a “marijuana overdose” is PIZZA!

    • Scott Bates

      Please excuse my tirade, I’m taking care of my father who has Alzheimer’s, I live in Ohio where we finally passed medical marijuana, but our lawmakers are doing everything they can to keep it from the people because of the fore mentioned “narrow minded bigotry”. If they can read this all I have to say to them is… “YOU HAVE THE TOOL IN YOUR HANDS, WHY ARE YOU NOT LOOKING UP ALL THE GOOD IT DOES INSTEAD OF CLIMBING UP ON YOUR SOAPBOX AND PREACHING- MARIJUANA IS BAD”? We need a list of these morons that are keeping what actually works from the people so we can vote them the hell out!

        That soapbox is provided and paid for by Big Pharma who does NOT want anyone to have access to any kind of treatment of cure that they did not engineer and manufacture. Sad but true.

  • Alex

    My mom has Alzheimer’s dementia and has just advanced to a new stage, a week ago she started mumbling but has gotten a little better..more intelligible . She isn’t as angry or aggressive as she was prior to a week ago and her crying spells are gone for now. My brother has given her oil from MJ that he grows organically but I don’t know if it has helped or not, and not on a regular basis either. She has been taking turmeric in liquid form, organic veggies, cinnamon and virgin coconut oil so I hope that it’s all helping. I just would like to see her recover but she’s had it, full blown, since 3 years ago and the onset (symptoms)probably about 6 years ago maybe more. For a while I’d give her the coconut oil by the spoonful about 3 years ago but she would refuse it so we only cook with it or olive oil. I have also heard that statin drugs (for lowering cholesterol levels) destroy the brains make up leading to Alzheimer’s and is visible in brain x-rays,ct scan. So I won’t allow it. No, to vaccines also. She hasn’t had a cold or the flu in years.

    More human trials with cannabis oil extracted in the cleanest possible method which is CO2 extraction are required. But I’m already convinced with the latest articles I’ve read… THC, the main psychoactive compound in cannabis reduces levels of this toxic protein which causes alzheimer’s. Now we need to figure out the right oral dosage of cannabis oil for Alzheimer’s patients.

    My name is Jack deweese i was in the US army and went to Liberia leaving my wife and two kids for 8 months when i returned my wife told me she was no longer interested in the marriage that if she could survive for 8 months without me the marriage is meaningless. Leaving home for 8 months was not easy but not having a family when i came back was more difficult. I pleaded continuously with her for 3 months. I even left the army just to convince her but all my attempt to get her back failed. My heart was totally broken when i saw my wife and my superior commander together in a Spanish bar. I still love her and need her to take care of my kids. I sent friends and family members to her but she refuse to come back home. This faithful day i was about to sign a friend guest book when i saw a post about a spell caster, at first i laughed but took the email of the prophet after 2days something inside of me just asked me to contact him so i did he asked for my information and that of my wife which i sent, he told me that my wife was under spell from superior commander because he has admired her for a very long time. he told me he has destroyed the spell and she was going to call me after 7 days. To my surprise she called my even before the 7th day elapsed and said she was wrong to have left me and said she want to come back home. I am using this medium to encourage other men and even women to contact this great spell caster for marital, relationship or any problems and i believe that he will help. His email is prophetabulelehealingtemple@gmail.com

    This is Angel Sean from USA, am sharing this article to give thanks to Dr.Vanisa, who helped me to bring back my EX lover that broke up with me for 2 months. I was searching for advise on what to do to get back my EX lover and i came across a post of a woman in USA called Angela Shuane giving thanks to Dr.Vanisa, for helping her to get back her lost HUSBAND who left her for years with her kids. I contacted the spell caster for help due to the fact that i needed my EX lover desperately because he is my lover and my life. To God be the glory, my EX lover came back to me within 12 to 16 after Dr.Vanisa, finished preparing the spell and i want the world to join me to give thanks to Dr.Vanisa, for helping me. Viewers reading my article that also need his help should contact Dr.Vanisa, with his email : [vanisaspellcaster@gmail.com]…he do cure nerve problem…..

    Marijuana is not addictive. I am an opiate addict. Have been for almost 10 years. Until you’ve laid in bed in pain drenched in sweat but freezing cold and feeling like you just got hit by a truck cause every muscle and joint in your body aches so bad not able to sleep and unable to control bowel movements, you don’t know addiction. I’ve been clean for almost 3 months now and maarijuana has helped with my insomnia and the chronic pains that got me on opiates in the first place. Never once have I had cold sweats or actual physical pain from cannabis. Now in watching my grandfather go through dementia and want to know if oil can truly help. And what would be best the CBD oil from a sativa or from an indica?. Or maybe even a hybrid? What have you found more effective? I want to have feedback from people who have watched its effects on someone with dementia or alzheimers so I can show it to my family to say hey lets give this a try. I hate seeing him take the anxiety pills for his episodes they make him so cloudy and he has such a tolerance that it takes almost triple + some to get him calm. He doesn’t sleep well has so scared all the time I feel like this would at least calm him down so that he can sleep and eat normal even though we know he doesn’t have too much longer. I just want him to be comfortable while he is still with us.

    My Wife was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in March 2014. The doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering her lower lobe and also had spread to her lymph nodes. We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain. She hated the morphine which made her vomit and also affected her mind.

    After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, which was to rely on ourselves.We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain. The cancer had blocked her bile duct, after that we choose a Naturopath doctor and have not had conventional treatments. one day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email on how to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it.

    After taking a gram of oil per day. Within a couple of weeks her pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of life. We never saw an ocologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. Her tumor marker went from over 6000 to normal and she is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but we enjoy every day and give thanks. As i am writing this post, my Wife is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer was cured permanently.

    It should have been mentioned that the researchers from the Nijmengen study concluded that THC dosis might have been too low to show effects and that further studies with higher dosis should be considered.

    I’d like to add my thoughts to all of this. I read thru many of the comments, it’s apparent if the they can’t patent it , they ban it harmful and illegal to keep selling you their drugs! And the side effects from all their drugs is robbing our minds and cause more harm then the initial illness in many and harm the environment. It’s easy to see how a spiritually bankrupt society has fallen prey to these big $$ greedy drug pushers. I worked in the medical field. Front and back office as a CMA/RMA. I was also an alcoholic and later became a legal addict (Pills). I was no longer working in that field when I got into pills. My dr gave me pills for depression and pain which I discovered helped me keep my drinking at a minimal. I was not a pot smoker cause I was shy and it made me feel uncomfortable. Alcohol and pills changed my personality. I lost so many good years of my life as well as hurt so many. I was on a mission to find answers to my life, to life period. This was hell! 30 years I felt I was in bondage, physically and spiritually. I was so fortunate to find a good dr. that started me on suboxone treatment. A good side effect of this medication was that the smell or thought of alcohol made me sick. I have not had one drop of alcohol in 9 yrs! I also quit other medications I had been on for yrs. I now use cannabis for medical plus I do now enjoy the high, I feel good about myself and life. But I will also want to say that in my search, I came across the most important thing that helped me to heal emotionally and spiritually . The Baha’i Faith, reading and studying put everything into perspective and healed my soul and helped me to understand my purpose in life and who I am. Stand up for what you believe, greed is killing our planet and health.

    On the website http://www.truthonpot.com/2013/04/25/can-medical-marijuana-treat-atherosclerosis/ , it stated that effective dose (for atherosclerosis treatment) would be 1mg per kilogram. This study on Alzheimer’s says the dose tested was 1.5mg three times daily. This dose would serve a person weighing about 10 pounds, using the 1mg/kg math. Was this a fair test of the effect of THC on Alzheimer’s disease? That website also states that 1mg/kg “is much lower than the amount of THC that causes psychoactive effects.” If this is true, then getting “high” should not be an issue at a greater dose than was tested on Alzheimer’s.
