How Medical Marijuana Can Help Alzheimer's Disease

There is evidence that shows that medical marijuana can help with many of the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.

Studies have shown that medical marijuana can slow the production of specific proteins that are linked to the progression of Alzheimer's and can help reduce that amount of a specific compound that is a trademark of the disease. These proteins and compounds create an inflammatory response in the brain which progresses that disease. 

The symptoms that medical marijuana can help alleviate in Alzheimer’s include aggression, insomnia, hallucinations, anxiety, and depression. Patients could have a much better quality of life when on medical marijuana, and that their life could be lengthened due to decrease in inflammation.
