Israeli Research On Humans Demonstrates THC Helps Alzheimer’s Patients


According to researchers at Tel-Aviv University, adding tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to the treatment of patients suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease provides “a potential treatment” for the deadly degenerative neurological disease.

Costing America a little over $200 billion in 2013, Alzheimer’s Disease currently affects more than 5 million US citizens. As 1 in 3 seniors face the unpleasant reality of doing battle with AD or some other form of dementia in their lifetime, Alzheimer’s remains firmly entrenched atop the top 10 causes of death in the United States. Coming in at number six.

After successfully conducting one of the first clinical studies of marijuana’s THC cannabinoid on human Alzheimer’s patients, scientists at Israel’s Abarbanel Mental Health Center and the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel-Aviv University, along with the Department of Psychology, at Bar-Ilan University reported “significant reduction” in the severity of mental distress – particularly in decreasing episodes of irritability, aggression/agitation, delusions and insomnia.

Per the study’s conclusions, marijuana’s “tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is safe and a promising treatment option” for those suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.


  1. Just think of how much has been lost in NOT allowing research done with cannabis because of Federal Prohibition(forced to be illegal by the filthy rich to protect their greedy profits and fraud about everything under the sun!!!!!!
    We are now having GMO’s put in all our food without our knowledge!!!!!!
    The government is allowing corporations to literally kill us for profits!!!!
    Seriously, this government is out of control…
