Cannabis Will Become a Priority for the Treatment of Dementia Patients

DSC05336a

 Did you know?

This article predicts Alzheimer’s will be as manageable as HIV within 10 years. Well I predict that Alzheimer’s is manageable now thanks to Cannabis.

The Scientists think they’re prediction is headline news, but what they aren’t telling you is that they already know the answer, they won’t be FUNDED to give the answers until 10 years.

As patients, we bypass the headlines and give our trust to a plant that has stabilized my condition after taking my own health into my own hands. Be proactive and open in your research on how to treat your condition.

There is value is what the Scientists are saying but the underlying message is that chemicals do not stabilize Dementia. Their trusted protocals are now being questioned after promoting Pfizer and top drug making companies.

Why? Because Cannabis is the answer.

Alzheimer’s will be as manageable as HIV within 10 years, predict award-winning scientists 

“-Future treatments will stop symptoms developing, rather than reversing them.

-Scientists claim Alzheimer’s will ‘disappear as a major problem from society’.

-They believe dementia drugs often fail trials due to them being taken too late

The scientists discovered the role of protein plaques in the brain in Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s affects around 5.5 million in the US and 850,000 people in the UK.

Countdown to Re-legalization

DSC05322a

 

Did you know?

It’s about 3-4 months till Canada legalizes our Native plant for medical and recreational use. Do I take a sigh of relief or do we need to hide our inherent right to medicate for healing purposes?

If we follow in the footsteps of our Mother Earth and put the plant first; we will unite under the protection of this sacred medicine. Regardless of race, our rights as patients who need this medicine to live, becomes the driving force.

From an Aboriginal perspective, I praise the efforts of my community to “legally” own the rights and reclaim this Native plant after all this prohibition time. From an Irish Canadian point of view, I hope that women and patients will become the priority and majority in the medical cannabis field.

Again we are at the mercy of the federal government, but if Prime Minister Trudeau actually follows through with legalization, I know I will be in control of my future and won’t be persecuted for seeking a CBD/THC treatment plan.

Then hopefully lead to employing people with disabilities to work in the cannabis industry that will improve our socio-economic future on several levels. We will be able to medicate and balance our work lives to accommodate our disabilities and enrich our culture more so.

After restarting my research, I found this Aboriginal Canadian network that covers exactly my concerns and hopes for our cannabis community.

“National Indigenous Medical Cannabis Association (NIMCA)

“Specifically, NIMCA’s role is the following, but not limited to the self-regulation of Indigenous medical cannabis industry through the application of Indigenous political and economic principals and governance that will:

 

o Uphold Indigenous sovereignty self-determination

o Protect minors and families;

o Keep organized crime out of legit Indigenous hemp and cannabis industries;

o Provide the education, awareness, policy and capacity necessary to provide quality control and safe handling;

o Develop a cannabis treatment program to combat the opioid crisis that has gripped Indigenous and mainstream society;

o Ensure standardized testing and consistency of product quality;

o Safety and security;

o Education and awareness within the industry and consumers;

o Regulate pricing of products;

o Generate new training, jobs and economy of scale for Indigenous people and nations;

o Ensure fair wages, benefits and a safe work environment for all employees; and,

o To promote the overall health and well-being of all communities.

BC First Nations Introduce Traditional Law For Cannabis Re-legalization

First Nations
First Nations

 

Did you know?

 

BC First Nations jumped at the chance to introduce Traditional Law for Cannabis re-legalization. British Columbia (BC) is located on the West Coast of Canada where the sea meets the sky. This heavily forestry-enriched territory is set to legalize Cannabis possibly July 1, 2018. What do the Four Host First Nations of the Traditional Coast Salish Territory have to say about this matter?

 

“…[M}edicinal herbs and plants found and cultivated on traditional territory are protected under “Ayookxw”, or traditional law.”

 

Now that Cannabis will be traditionally and readily available to the community in a healing capacity, a reconciliation process will begin. As a result, there will be a renewed economic independence, access to services for Elders and solidarity through recovery; that comes from the repatriation of Medical Marijuana.

 

“Several members dealing with conditions like cancer, diabetes, and fibromyalgia have found relief, while others have used it to help remove their dependence on alcohol and other drugs.”

 

This is the economic push that will improve living conditions on Reserves; and restore cultivating traditions on ancestral land after this traditional plant has been outlawed for so long.

Cannabis Could Help Cure Alzheimer’s

Did You Know?

 

Forbes recently posted an article on “Experts: Cannabis Could Help Cure Alzheimer’s If Lawmakers Would Chill Out” by Janet Burns.

 

This article claims Lawmakers are essentially blocking the Medical Marijuana movement because of the pharma industries.

 

“According to Schubert, that’s because pharmaceutical companies are not just trying to prevent cannabis cures, but also on the wrong track for finding their own.”

 

Although Pharma is actively working on medicine to treat Alzheimer’s called “Inhibitors,” unfortunately when you hit that stage, the pro-actions are too little, too late. They have also looked into a way of using Cannabis as medicine but they would have little control over the market.

 

“CNBC also noted that, while an estimated one in three seniors will die fighting dementia and a new Alzheimer’s diagnosis is delivered every 66 seconds, the costs of holding back effective treatment don’t just involve human life.”

 

It’s no longer just about recreational use, it’s about the right to stay alive by simply extracting healing compounds from a plant. Since the aging population has become the largest group to switchover to Cannabis, stories will emerge about patients fighting off one of the most inhumane diseases in the world.

RElegalization for Canada

Canada is Poised to Re-legalize Cannabis

Patients Helping Patients Around The World – Blog #1

Research is needed

Did You Know?

 

Canada is poised to re-legalize Cannabis come July 1, 2018. After years of misunderstanding the medicinal compounds of Cannabis, Canada has been preparing in the background. Local news sources have dedicated columns to educate Canadians about the impact of these new laws.

 

Some provinces in Canada are mandating government run dispensaries, the others will allow some privatized locations under the guise of the Cannabis Act. More federal funds are now being allocated to stricter border control and education kits for parents to discuss with the kids.

 

This seed carries a spectrum of healing properties that could repair a nation, a country, a brain that was once broken. However, it is up to the Cannabis Community in Canada to set a standard by sharing information with progressive medical professionals. If there will be any positive changes in the medical system, it will be coming from the patients who have become the teachers.

What is Frontotemporal Dementia?

FTD

“Frontotemporal Dementia occurs when nerve cells in the frontal and/or temporal lobes of the brain die, and the pathways that connect the lobes change. Some of the chemical messengers that transmit signals between nerve cells are also lost. Over time, as more and more nerve cells die, the brain tissue in the frontal and temporal lobes shrinks.

When the frontal and/or temporal lobes are damaged in this way, this causes the symptoms of FTD. These include changes in personality and behaviour, and difficulties with language. These symptoms are different from the memory loss often associated with more common types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. As FTD is a less common form of dementia, many people (including some health professionals) may not have heard of it.”
