Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

My blog is not to help survivors recover, it is to have the 10 million yearly stroke survivors light fires underneath their doctors, stroke hospitals and stroke researchers to get stroke solved. 100% recovery. The stroke medical world is completely failing at that goal, they don't even have it as a goal.

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It lays out what needs to be done to get stroke survivors closer to 100% recovery. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

What will it take for marijuana/cannabis/weed/mj to be recognized and provided as a therapy for stroke?

Why won't your doctor prescribe this? Demand an answer. How many research studies will be needed and how many survivors will need to continue to be disabled until this becomes available?  Do no harm is a doctor mantra. Inaction on this is doing harm.

Ask your senator and representative this exact question and don't accept their crap about it leading to hard drugs.  Wait until they are the 1 in 6 that have a stroke and are whining about the lack of therapies.
Medical marijuana is NOT the answer,  the states are way behind the times in conditions that can use marijuana. Michigan is one of the stupidest states for this, you have to grow your own. It would take months to get your seeds from the Netherlands, grow and dry it. You would need to know in advance you were having a stroke so you could prepare.
