• Medical Cannabis Ideal for Recovering from Stroke or Other Brain Injury

    Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Someone has a stroke every 53 seconds. Most are ischemic, which deny blood and oxygen to brain tissue cells due to blood vessel constrictions or obstructions. Hemorrhagic strokes, which occur from leaking or burst brain blood vessels, are in the minority. Strokes do cause brain and neurological damage since a portion of the brain is denied blood and oxygen long enough for brain cell death and tissue damage. Most medical professionals consider the damage irreparable. This irreparable damage is a leading cause of disability, often involving speech, which is sometimes partially overcome with costly and extensive rehab. Often major damage comes from the effort to rapidly restore blood flow for ischemic stroke victims, known as reperfusion, in order to keep the victim alive. Recent research in China using pure cannabidiol (CBD) discovered it is a safe deterrent that at least minimizes permanent damage from strokes. From that study comes this conclusion: “In summary, our results suggest that CBD exerts a potent neuroprotective effect against ischemia/reperfusion injury by attenuating intracellular oxidative stress, enhancing mitochondrial bioenergetics, and optimizing glucose metabolism via the pentose-phosphate pathway, thus strengthening the antioxidant defenses and preserving the energy homeostasis of neurons.”

    I am actually the one treating Debbie Wilson. Not that the message in this article isn't fantastic, but there is an extreme amount of inaccuracy or pertinent information not included that people looking to gain treatment would need know. Debbie's extreme recovery, though it seems miraculous, is actually due to her treatment being based solely on precise, scientific evidence based formulations developed over time. Her medications, of which there are more than one, consist of multiple cannabinoids, as well as other included phytochemicals, including terpenes. She will tell you this herself, without question. In actuality, Debbie sustained 2 traumatic brain injuries, developed intractable epilepsy as a result, ended up wearing a seizure helmet, a neck and back brace, was diagnosed with Dementia (not Alz) which has since been reversed, and scored at the bottom 2% on her neuropsych for cognition. She failed on mass pharmaceutical medications, as well as not being qualified for interventative surgeries and implants. At this time, Debbie is primarily seizure free. She indeed no longer wears the seizure helmet, back or neck brace. Her gait is now stable. Her cognition is improved by over 300%. Her last MRI was run twice, as the actual physical improvement is showed was (apparently) difficult for them to believe, and they were sure it was a mechanical error. Furthermore... as of recently, Debbie is now capable living ON HER OWN for the first time in over 20 years. This is all true, but not as simple as depicted.
