Alzheimer's Disease is a progressive neurological disorder characterized by loss of memory, disorientation to time and place, and a loss of learned behavior. In its advanced stages patients are reduced to needing round the clock custodial care. Since AD is a disease of the elderly, our rapidly ageing population is likely to be responsible for a hugh increase in the number of cases in the coming years.
A build up of amyloid protein in the brain is felt to be at least partially responsible for the loss of brain function. Clinical experience is very limited because AD patients rarely use cannabis because they are not functioning well enough to make an independent decision to use it and those caring for them are not aware that cannabis may be of therapeutic value.
Research on rats, however has demonstrated that cannabinoids can reduce the cognitive and inflammatory effects of amyloid build up. Other research indicates the cannabinoids can slow the rate of amyloid build up by interfering with the enzyme that produces it. More research is clearly justified as well as human clinical trials since, to date there are no effective treatments to this heartbreaking disease.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a fatal neurological disease caused by the progressive loss of motor nerve cells in the spinal cord. Clinical trials are non-existent but there are anecdotal reports and some limited research indicating that cannabis may slow the progression of disease as well as moderate some of its symptoms. As with other diseases, more research is needed.

I have Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease (EOAD) and am looking for information on strains to use and ways of ingesting. If you know of specific types and methods or have experience please share. I am a long time advocate of MM and post at www.alz.org in the forums to inform people, both patients still able to use a computer and caregivers about the legitimacy of marijuana as MEDICINE. From patients will come progress. Michigan legalized use but we have no dispensaries where I live. Advice appreciated.
Sandra Wilkinson and her 9-year old daughter Mia at Canadian Cannabis Clinics in St. Catharines on Monday, September 14, 2015. Mrs. Wilkinson brought Mia to this Ontario clinic because she could not get her prescription for Cannabis Oil renewed at their home in Alberta. Mia has been taking Cannabis oil for two years. She went from having 100 seizures a day to being seizure-free for about a year and a half.
*I usually order my Cannabis oil from E-mail: (email@example.com) OR Skype: (medical.cannabis) and it has helped me with several medical issues like Treating Cancer, Severe Pain, Depression, Seizure disorders and Crohn's disease.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. It is a progressive and degenerative disease that affects the patient’s memory, thinking and ability to interact socially. It affects about 1 in 10 people over 65 years, and almost 1 in 4 people over 85 years.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by the selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord, brain stem, and motor cortex.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the hundred compounds found in the cannabis plant that belongs to a class of chemicals called cannabinoids. However, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects like the other known cannabinoid called THC. CBD possesses neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. These properties can be therapeutically beneficial for reducing the cognitive and functional impairment that occurs with Alzheimer’s disease as well as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Here I am also sharing with you Alzheimer’s related video in which you see how medical marijuana used to treat this disease.
