Strokes are extremely dangerous: a vein bursts in the brain or is blocked and curbs oxygen to the brain. Brain cells can therefore die in minutes. This causes loss of balance and movement issues, intellectual shortfalls, depression, language issues, learning disabilities, memory loss, paralysis, seizures, slurred speech, trouble swallowing and weakness. Anyone who experiences a stroke must get medical assistance within 3 hours.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Strokes?
A study found that CBD is a more effective antioxidant than vitamin A or E, which are known to block the damage of glutamate. Cannabinoids can block glutamate which is created when the brain lacks oxygen. The CBD can therefore save the brain cells from dying due to starvation. Cannabinoid receptors appear to increase in the brain after a stroke and CBD binds to these receptors to assist the brain to survive a stroke. Another study revealed that cannabinoids can protect the brain and even trigger the growth of new brain cells where there is damage or disease. Medical cannabis can also treat inflammation in the brain and nervous system. The patient needs cannabis oil directly after a stroke to prevent neurons and astrocytes from being damaged. This ensures normal brain recovery. Since strokes occur in the brain, patients can use both CBD and THC to promote recovery and rebalancing of the immune system.
Cannabis Therapy suggested treatment guidelines:
Panacea THC/CBD tincture and the patient can take 5 drops twice daily (morning and night)
