Do you have a Grandparent or even a parent that suffers from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia? Medical marijuana can legitimately help things out. THC is a chemical found in marijuana. What THC can do is slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins. This is the key contributor to the progression of Alzheimer’s. THC can not only reduce those beta levels, however it can stop the inflammatory response from the nerve cells. The nerve cells survive then & you retain your memory longer, then pretty cool & attractive right? After reading about cannabis & dementia, I decided to be proactive & help our Grandfather. I took him to a doctor that prescribed medical cannabis. I then filled out the forms online, paid the fee & got him a medical cannabis card. Then I dragged our Grandfather to the medical marijuana dispensary near me; She wasn’t too triumphant to rely on weed. Thankfully the budtenders know their stuff & the cannabis shops have so many weird products. My Grandfather is a cigar smoker. So the budtender got him some cannabis flower & a pipe that looks & feels just prefer you are holding a cigar. The budtender managed to make our 68 year old Grandfather know comfortable with smoking weed. My Grandma makes sure she smokes in the day & during the daytime once. I have noticed a difference & our Grandfather seems to legitimately prefer cannabis. My Grandma has even talked about getting a CBD infused cooking oil & making them some meals. It is weird seeing older people so excited about weed.
