Mike Tyson knows first hand that boxing for a living can have lasting effects on the brain. Many soldiers, NFL players, boxers and other athletes suffer from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) brought on by concussions and other brain injuries. There is currently no treatment for CTE and the behavioral changes, physical disabilities and memory loss associated with it. However, according to a medical journal published in 2018 titled “Cannabis Therapeutics and the Future of Neurology” cannabis has been hound to repair the “neuronal demise” associated with a traumatic brain injury. Because of evidence like this, Tyson has sunk his fortune into a cannabis farm known as The Ranch and is using the farm to fuel research in CTE and its side effects. Many medical practitioners associated with The Ranch hope that the healing properties in CBD and THC can help the brain heal itself and if not, at least mitigate the resulting side effects of CTE such as anger, insomnia, tinnitus and depression. Hopefully the financial success of Tyson’s burgeoning cannabis empire in the commercial market will effectively accelerate the medical research and create effect treatments for CTE sufferers sooner rather than later!
