Dr. Ethan Russo, MD: Treating Alzheimer's & Other Dementia w/ Full Spectrum Cannabis

in #cannabis5 years ago (edited)

After hearing him speak at CannMed2018 at UCLA and reading his incredible review article in Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience, I knew we had to sit down and chat with Dr. Russo at The Emerald Cup about how #CannabisHelpsDementia.

The quote of the interview:

"It is the combination of THC, CBD and other components that presents the best promise for really making a meaningful difference in treating Alzheimer's Disease clinically."

Ethan B. Russo, MD
International Cannabis & Cannabinoids Institute

You can read the article that inspired the quest here. https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnint.2018.00051/full

More than anything we need to get cannabis OFF the Controlled Substances Act Schedule I of Drugs so studies can be done, doctors and nurses can talk about it without fear of their licences being revoked, and patients can have access to this ‘medicinal agricultural product’ that seems to be really great for the brain!

The WHO agrees in RE-Scheduling internationally and Newsweek asked Dr. Russo for a comment:


"Ethan Russo of the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute told Newsweek that the WHO’s latest proposals were very significant given the organization's historical stance on cannabis.

“These recommendations are of monumental importance as they may lead to the overcoming of barriers to research, enhance access of patients to cannabis-based medicine, and allow free commerce of cannabis products internationally,” he said."

Thank you @AlexisBortell & @BryanTerry4TN for the excellent terminology on this healing plant and Dr. Ethan Russo for leading the way in cannabis and cannabinoid research.

We make no money on YouTube. YouTube finds my original content on cannabis "Not suitable for all advertisers" and DE-monetizes them despite allowing corporate media to profit on the topic.
