Emerging State of Cannabis

Regarded by many scientist and physicians as a reliable treatment option for people suffering from a variety of ailments, the stigma of cannabis is dissipating. According to archaeological records, the use of cannabis for medical purposes dates back to approximately 4,000 BC.

In more recent years, scientific studies from the Scripps Research Institute have concluded that THC may prevent Alzheimer’s disease. The study reached this conclusion after discovering that THC works as a superior inhibitor to block amyloid plaque -clusters of protein deposits in the brain- that ultimately inhibit memory and cognition.  In addition, the study indicated that THC may improve the symptoms and slow the progression of this disease.

The yearning to be healthy is a great motivator for change. Perhaps soon, people will come to know the truth with regard to the incredible benefits of using medical cannabis as a prescription for many acute and chronic illnesses.
