Death of NFL players calls for an alliance to combat brain injuries and exploring neuroprotectant properties of cannabis
The Realm of Caring Foundation (RoC) is saddened to hear of the sudden loss of Adrian Robinson, former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker. Adrian struggled with an all-too-common occurrence in professional sports: Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). This diagnosis was confirmed during his autopsy on October 14, 2015. The University of Pittsburg tallied 153 CTE documented cases of this phenomenon between 1954 and 2013 that continues to go unacknowledged by many professional sports entities. Research now supports that cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, a non-psychoactive constituent of cannabis, can create neurogenesis and reduce inflammation associated with brain injuries, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Realm of Caring's primary mission is quality of life, with a passionate focus on research. Realm of Caring is currently moving forward with PSA's, a targeted alliance of former NFL players and research studies to assure quality, respected and accredited cannabinoid science to help prevent further deterioration of families and the devastating loss of these sons, men and fathers.
