    The Benefits Of Alternative Medicine For Alzheimer's Disease

    According to recent medical study, the usage of medical marijuana may play an important role in slowing the growth of the dreadful Alzheimer's disease. The major constituent, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), decreases and prevents the creation of neural protein deposits deep within the brain. These deposits are the primary cause of this degenerative neurological disease. Medical marijuana dispensaries limit the production of these protein deposits or sticky amyloid plaques, which cause neuronal damage, hinder memory and cognition, cause severe memory loss, and cause confusion, irritability, mood swings, spatial disorientation, and speech issues.

    Alzheimer's disease is a deadly disease that destroys brain cells, resulting in memory loss, dementia, and impaired motor functions, as well as lower cognition and social skills. In the United States, Alzheimer's disease is one of the top 10 causes of death among the elderly. According to research, medical cannabis is an effective medication treatment for Alzheimer's disease and some of its symptoms.

    While Medical Marijuana (MMJ) is legal in some places in the United States, all medical marijuana card holders must purchase Medical Cannabis from a legal dispensary. A medical marijuana dispensary can also assist a patient in obtaining their medical marijuana card.

    Alzheimer's disease is a degenerative condition characterised by a progressive deterioration in memory and cognitive ability. It is an incurable and deadly disease that often affects persons over the age of 65. MMJ inhibits the development of the neural enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which causes the accumulation of toxic protein deposits in the brain and lowers the quantity of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter.

    While alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and nicotine limit and block the formation of new brain cells, recent clinical research by Scripps Research in San Diego reveal that marijuana increases neuron proliferation. This feature, together with supervised and monitored distribution through multiple medical marijuana dispensaries, significantly supports its medicinal usage.

    A variety of prescription medicines are also known to inhibit the formation of new brain cells. Aside from doing the exact opposite, medical cannabis from dispensaries reduces tumour development and inflammation in clinical trials on over 50% of lung cancer patients. Patients discover significant comfort from their Alzheimer's symptoms by visiting a regulated dispensary and receiving optimal amounts of Medical Marijuana to alleviate their symptoms.
