Cannabis has long been determined to be beneficial in slowing ALS’s progression and offering relief from its associated symptoms. Preclinical studies indicate that cannabinoids found in cannabis, including the psychoactive tetrahydrocannabidiol (THC), have #antioxidative , anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects. Numerous animal trials have demonstrated that the administration of cannabinoids in cannabis can delay the onset of ALS, prolong the survival of #neurons and slow the disease’s progression3,4,5.
#Cannabinol (CBD), another cannabinoid found in cannabis, but one that doesn’t have psychoactive effects, has also been found to significantly slow the onset of ALS6.
Cannabis can also help ALS patients manage the #pain , appetite loss, #depression , #sleeping problems, spasticity and drooling symptoms associated with the disease1,4. #Cannabis combats ALS-associated pain because of its analgesia and anti-inflammatory effects, and manages #spasticity with its muscle-relaxing properties. Because of its appetite stimulating effects, it helps prevent the wasting that can occur in the final stages of ALS4.
