Reblog: Cannabis Looks Promising for Improved Quality of Life

via Cannabis Looks Promising for Improved Quality of Life

My two major takeaways from this article:

  •  Their goal was to bring patients together with researchers to ask questions and share information, and increase the dissemination of ALS research information in a patient’s “voice”.
  • 91% of those using cannabis said it improved their quality of life by decreasing anxiety, stress, drooling and depression.  They had more energy to complete tasks, less fatigue, they slept better and had decreased insomnia. Patients even experienced increased intimacy and sex drive.  60% said cannabis helped them cope with ALS and its progression.  Ms Ryan said these findings were as important to them as the physical results.

Not trying to start a heated discussion or impress my personal beliefs on you (though I bet they are different than you’re assuming), just pointing out that even if it was bungee jumping that returns these kinds of results – 91% of a study of 500 ALS patients agreed that something improved their quality of life – that’s huge.
