What is a neurodegenerative disease?

These are a heterogeneous group of disorders that are identified by the gradual degeneration of the function and structure of the central nervous system (including neurons). Neurons act like building blocks in our central nervous system and hence are a crucial factor for the health of the brain and spinal cord. Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are some of the most common neurodegenerative disorders.

What causes neurodegenerative diseases?

Many factors are responsible for increasing the risk of having neurodegenerative issues, such as genetic changes, brain injuries, environmental degradation, etc. Age is often a factor in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Other neurodegenerative disorders include Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Cancers, Multiple sclerosis, Prion disease, etc.

Cannabinoids help in activating our cannabinoid receptors, such as CB1 and CB2, that protect the body against motor deficits. Thus, the endogenous cannabinoids that are part of our ECS help to control many of the physiological processes. Some of these processes include neuroplasticity, inflammation, and cerebral blood flow.

●     Cannabis helps in reducing brain injuries:

Cannabinoids, like CBD, has neuroprotective properties to fight the effects of various kinds of brain injuries. Brain injuries can worsen some of the neurodegenerative ailments. Hence, it is crucial to be careful about brain injuries. According to studies, the entourage effect created by the combination of cannabinoids such as CBD and THC can be beneficial for brain or nerve injuries. Ezra’s Universal Toner has these and other cannabinoids and can be used after concussion, during headaches, etc.

●     Cannabis is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory:

Cannabis gets its neuroprotective effects from the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of the cannabinoids THC and CBD. For this reason, the chemicals present in Cannabis can lessen the impact of brain injuries.

Neurodegenerative disorders like Huntington’s, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s share common symptoms such as inflammation and over-stimulation of neurons. Affected people also have issues with supplying required oxygen to their neurons. Cannabinoids protect the neurons by controlling the mitochondrial activity and ensuring a steady supply of energy and oxygen to our brain cells.

●     Cannabis helps in controlling muscle soreness and spasticity:

Whenever there is muscle tissue damage followed by internal inflammation, our muscles become sore and painful for a long time. CBD, being an anti-inflammatory substance, can manage such pain. Moreover, the endocannabinoid system in the human body handles pain and inflammation. Since cannabinoids deal directly with the ECS, they can take a substantial role in soothing muscle pain. The muscle pain controlling property of Cannabis also makes it a potent remedy for Multiple sclerosis, which is an autoimmune disorder.
