Studies Show ALS and Tourette Syndrome Can Be Treated With Medical Marijuana

When people discuss medical marijuana, they tend to think of the most common diseases and disorders such as  pain, anxiety, insomnia, and glaucoma. However, there are several diseases that never mention in this discussion. Two rate diseases that can be treated with medical marijuana are ALS and Tourette Syndrome.



AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS (ALS)
The degenerative neurological disorder, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, affects an estimated 300,000 people in the U.S. It made headlines in summer 2014 when people poured buckets full of ice water on themselves in an effort to raise awareness for the disease. While research has previously established that marijuana could be used to treat various symptoms of ALS — including pain, spasticity, depression, and drooling — recent anecdotal evidence also suggests that cannabis oil can slow the progression of the disease, Leafly reports.



TOURETTE SYNDROME

There is no cure for Tourette syndrome, a nervous system disorder that affects more that 200,000 people in the U.S. in a given year. But there are known ways to manage the symptoms, which include involuntary movements and vocalizations. Cannabis appears to be one of those treatment options, studies show. Between 1999 and 2003, four studies confirmed that THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, reduced tics and obsessive tendencies in adults with Tourette. In a 2003 study published in the journal Expert Opinion in Pharmacotherapy, researchers wrote that "[B]y many experts THC is recommended for the treatment of TS in adult patients, when first line treatments failed to improve the tics."

  3. Hi,
    My name is Sarah Anik, some months ago I had s*x with the third guy in my life whom i was about to marry and now I have herpes. I couldn’t believe it because he wasn’t a random guy, he’s the closet guy I’ve had as a boyfriend, but it has been a never ending nightmare since. I’ve always believed in GOD and have asked him for forgiveness which is ironic.
    I felt like killing myself with the taught of having a husband and family will be quite difficult and i felt like I’m not really in the room when people are talking. I didn’t know what to do and pretty much cry and pray every day to God for help and looking at my family with so much love and feeling that i have disappointed them even though they don’t know. Until God lead me to DR. SOLUTION online who promised to help me cure my disease through herbals. At first i didn't believe him, but to my greatest surprise i was cured completely by herbals, which medical doctor also verified that i was cured. Special thanks to DR. SOLUTION.
    Don't be discourage because he that did it for me will also do it for you and you can contact him through his email address solutionhealinghome@gmail.com or text him on what'sapp, phone number +2348077683109 or visit his website www.healinghome.webs.com for more information.
