We think, therefore WE ARE; Our thoughts are us and we are them. Therefore losing a bunch of memories is losing part of you, but losing all of them is equivalent to death. Watching a loved one go through Alzheimer's disease or Dementia is truly heartbreaking.
But, what if we could do something about it? Now, what I'll tell you might sound completely crazy to you, after all, I know that most people can't even imagine grandpa smoking a doobie, but hear me out: What if I told you that, THC, the main component of Cannabis can stop the progression of Alzheimer's and Dementia?
So turns out the main culprit here is something called Beta Amyloid, which is the main component in Amyloid plaques, which form in brains with Alzheimer's and Dementia and play a major role in these an other neuro-degenerative diseases. The good news is that recent studies have found that Cannabis can reduce the amount of Beta Amyloid in the brain and also reduce the symptoms in patients and prevent the diseases altogether. Just reducing the suffering alone is already a win in my book And if it reduces the suffering AND stops or slows down the disease and that's definitely a double win. I'd much rather see grandpa high than gone.
