Cherry Oil as an ALS Treatment
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an extremely degenerative neurological disorder that impacts nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord causing muscle weakness, wasting, paralysis of the limbs, loss of control of speech, swallowing and breathing. It’s estimated that this disease affects more than 20,000 Canadians and Americans. Medical cannabis extracts like Cherry Oil and Cherry RSO has been used to treat this disease for a long time. Preclinical research has found that cannabis extracts have powerful anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties which may slow the progression of ALS and prolong the lives of people affected.
