Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), known informally as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”, is a neurodegenerative disease caused by destruction of motor neurons. This damage leads to muscle weakness and atrophy; (i.e. arms and legs) and eventually causes dysfunction and failures in chewing, swallowing, and breathing. Cannabinoid may assist suffers with ALS by use as an anti inflammatory, muscle relaxant, appetite stimulant, bronchodilation, and dry mouth remedy. Patients seeking a cannabis solution to ALS should seek out a strain with high THC and medium to high CBD content.
