In a study completed by the Alzheimer’s Association, it was calculated that ten percent of Americans age 65 and older suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. Over five million Americans have been diagnosed, and the at-risk population is growing steadily. People are living longer, which creates a larger population of seniors. Currently, there is no available cure for Alzheimer’s disease. Medical treatments center around the management of symptoms. Unfortunately, the primary medications often result in harmful side effects. Nausea, vomiting, indigestion, decreased appetite chest pain and cramps are common issues for Alzheimer’s patients. Long-term problems include stroke, heart and liver problems, and kidney problems. Exploratory studies are continuing to prove that specific elements found in the Cannabis sativa plant are helpful in treating Alzheimer’s disease. Cannabinoids have the capability to remove the buildup of senile plaques and also inhibit the inflammatory process that hastens the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. A four-week trial of ten patients with Alzheimer’s disease showed a substantial decrease in delusions, agitations, irritability, apathy, sleep and distress for those who were given medical cannabis oil. Another study of mice with advanced Alzheimer’s disease showed that a combination of THC and CBD decreased memory impairment. Ongoing research and studies continue to demonstrate the benefits of cannabinoids as a preventative medication and as part of a regular program of treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. While more research is needed, people are finding relief, success and hope through cannabis. Hopefully, these studies will focus more attention on both the disease and the potential for natural treatment. There’s no harmful side effects associated with cannabis treatment.

We’re just starting to realize the potential of cannabis in medical treatment. There have been numerous scientific studies, and there’s endless success stories from patients. Cannabis is now being considered for the treatment of pain, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, cancerous tumors, addiction, PTSD and much more. More than half the country has legalized marijuana for medical purposes. There is, however, the worry that continual use of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can result in cognitive and psychological problems. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and causes the high sensation. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. It has proven effective against the harmful effects of THC. A recent study demonstrated that equal amounts of CBD and THC prevented signs of behavioral deficits. This study supported the use of equal portions of THC and CBD to minimize risk for psychotic disorders. The study was performed on a group of mice during their adolescence and early adulthood. One group was give pure CBD. A second group was injected with strictly THC, while a third was given equal measures of both. The THC groups showed issues with working memory and increased anxiety. The mice that received strictly CBD demonstrated no cognitive changes. The third group also showed no cognitive abnormalities. CBD protects against the adverse effects of THC, and is non-toxic and abundant. It is found in the flowering marijuana as well as in hemp. CBD is a safe, natural and effective neuroprotectant. It has been proven successful at treating epilepsy in children. Children are able to receive treatment without the cognitive or neurological problems that THC might cause. There is no high feeling with CBD. Natural strains of cannabis provide close ratios of THC to CBD. The plant has gradually been bred to deliver stronger potency. Now, however, growers are shifting their focus toward producing CBD-rich strains.
Last week, I finally convinced my brother that he will never go into my bedroom again. I was so tired of him walking into my room without knocking. He had no business being in my room when I wasn’t home. When I heard his friends talking about seeing me naked, I about killed them. He had taken pictures of me in the shower and sold them to his friends. He is nothing but a sneaky little freak and I was tired of it. I tried to tell mom and dad, but they think I am just making ‘a mountain out of a molehill’. They won’t even let me buy a lock for my door. Last year, he took the condoms out of my drawer, that I had got when we had a school presentation on safe sex for the junior class. I was just waiting for the time when I could get him back and that time came sooner than I realized. I had made a batch of pot brownies for the summer hiking trip with my friends. I had them boxed up and in the closet. I came home that afternoon, to find my brother passed out in the bathroom. He had my clothing on, mascara was smeared all over his face and he had eyeshadow on his eyes. He began to giggle uncontrollably and I saw the chocolate around his mouth. The little pervert was high as I kite. I got out my cell phone and I began to take picture. After he sobered up, I emailed him one of the picture. I told him I was going to put them on facebook and email them to mom and dad if he ever walked into my bedroom again.
After moving away from my parents and moving to a state where marijuana was legal, I needed a job. I had moved into an apartment that was right across the street from a marijuana dispensary. I had become acquainted with some of the budtenders and I ended up working there. That was two years ago, and now we are beginning a new service in our marijuana dispensary. We are one of the biggest marijuana dispensaries in the state. We have over sixty strains of marijuana at any given time. We have constant deliveries coming into the store at the rate of three days a week. Our products are the freshest and finest in the state. A couple of weeks ago, the owner of our marijuana dispensary, came into the store and called a meeting of all employees. We were all given a binder that held all of the latest rules and regulations that pertained to medical and recreational marijuana. As budtenders, we all needed to be kept apprised of the laws and regulations that came out. She told us that we were going to begin delivery service in our area. We were all thrilled at this announcement. A lot of our clients were always inquiring as to if we would ever be delivering marijuana, and now we could tell them yes. We were going to need to hire delivery drivers. The first thing we had to make sure was that every driver was clean and they had passed their test for marijuana education or for budtender.
My brother may be the sleaziest of boys that I have ever met. He is always sneaking into my bedroom whether I am there or not. He took pictures of me sleeping and sold them to his friends. He goes through my drawers and my closet and I think he is stealing some of my stuff. Last year, we had an assembly for the juniors. They were talking about safe sex, and everyone came home with condoms. He stole the condoms and told mom and dad that he found them in my room. I didn’t even have the chance to tell them about the assembly. I found him reading my personal journal, and I got in trouble for calling him a pervert. Yesterday, he snooped for the very last time. I had baked some pot brownies for our graduation party out by the lake. He somehow got into my room and found the bos with the pot brownies. He ate the entire batch of pot brownies that was in that box. I came home to find him on my bathroom floor. He was giggling and had mascara and eyeshadow smeared all over his face. He had on my bra and panties. I took pictures of him and then sobered him up. I made sure he saw the pictures I took and I told him that if he ever came in my room again, I wouldn’t just show mom and dad the pictures, but I was going to make copies and put them all over the school. I think I cured him of his snooping in my room.
I have been working for a marijuana dispensary for about two years now. At the time I started working there, it was the only marijuana dispensary in our state. Over the past two years, we have been joined by hundreds, if not thousands of other marijuana dispensaries. We are all governed by the same rules and regulations. We stay open late into the day, and we always have customers in the store. We have the biggest inventory of odd strains of marijuana, of any marijuana dispensary in the state. We get new deliveries about three times a week. This allows us to have the freshest and the finest Bud. Not too long ago, the owner of the marijuana dispensary, called a general meeting for all employees. She stressed the importance of having only the brightest and best employees in our stores. She also told us that we were going to begin doing deliveries. This was exciting news for all of us. We had many clients that requests delivery service. Hiring drivers was going to be up to all of us. The drivers had to take the course in marijuana education or the budtender’s course in order to be a driver. Everyone who worked in the marijuana dispensary had to have one of these courses. We were all given a large binder with the newest rules and regulations that pertain to the medical and recreational marijuana. She told us that everyone in the business needed to be aware of the new legislature that pertains to delivery drivers for marijuana dispensaries.
My little brother is the biggest pain in the butt I have ever heard of. He is always in my room snooping around. I tell mom about his intruding in my privacy, but she just rolls her eyes. I asked dad if I could put a lock on my door, but I already knew he didn’t believe in locks inside the house. I had been to a school assembly where they talked to the juniors about safe sex. They gave out condoms to everyone. My brother took the condoms to my room, and I had to sit through a lecture about premarital sex. I couldn’t even tell them about the school assembly. Last month, I came out of the shower, and he stood there with a camera. He took pictures of me in a towel, and I think he even sold them to his scummy friends. The other day, I made a huge batch of marijuana infused brownies. My friends and I were going to a huge graduation party at the lake. I had the brownies packed in a box in my room. When I got home, my brother was laying on the bathroom floor. He was laughing and singing and barely coherent. The marijuana infused brownies were gone. He had my lipstick and eyeshadow smeared all over his face, and the mascara was dripping off his eyes. I got my camera and took pictures. When he sobered up, I asked if the pot brownies were good and I showed him the pictures. I swore to show them all over the school if he ever walked in my room again, and he swore he wouldn’t go in my room again.
When I took the leap and moved away from home, I knew that I needed to find a job. I was able to get a job at the local marijuana dispensary. I had to take the budtender classes, which set me back a bit of money, but I passed and I have been working here for almost two years now. The marijuana dispensary was one of the first in the state, but now we have grown to have several marijuana dispensaries in every town. We have hours that last late into the evening, and we are always busy. Our particular store has over fifty strains of marijuana available, for someone to choose from. We have distributors that deliver new products, several times a week. We also pride ourselves on having the freshest and best Bud, in the state. I had a meeting with the owner of the marijuana dispensary, last week. She called all of the employees in for a meeting. We were discussing starting a delivery service. We had many of our clients coming and asking about delivery, but thus far, we hadn’t offered the service. We were going to hire delivery drivers. They had to have passed the marijuana education classes or gone to budtender classes. We were all given binders on the rules and regulations that pertain to state laws regarding delivery of marijuana. Whether you were driving or not, you had to have the same education. The owner of our marijuana dispensary prides herself on hiring only the best and smartest of employees. She plans on demanding the same kind of employees for her drivers.
My brother is the biggest snoop of all time. I am always telling mom how he is in my room. I told her how he went through my underwear drawer and he was sending pictures to his friends. They thought I was just being picky with him. I asked for a lock for my bedroom, but they didn’t approve of bedroom door locks. He even found condoms in my room, and that led to a two hour lecture on pregnancy and STD’s. I couldn’t even tell them that the condoms came from school when they gave us a sex-ed class. He took pictures of me coming out of my own bathroom, and dressed only in a towel. I swear that pervert was selling them to his hockey team. Last week, I made a big batch of pot brownies. Some of my friends and I were going to the lake for the weekend before graduation. My brother found the brownies and he ate the entire pan of them. I got home and he was passed out in the bathroom. After putting makeup on him and my dress, I woke him up. He was so high, all he do was giggle. He had smeared the lipstick and he was unaware of anything. I took some pictures of him and put him to bed. The next morning I showed him the pictures. I told him that if he ever walked into my room, I would show the pictures to everyone in school and to mom and dad. I don’t think he will ever go into my room again.
