In recent years cannabinoids and their derivatives have drawn renewed attention because of their diverse pharmacologic
activities. We report here one such case, where all types of medical & psychiatric treatment failed to improve the
symptoms; however cannabis use was able to bring back this patient to normal productive & meaningful life. The patient was a 47 year old left handed Caucasian had minor subdural hematoma at the posterior vertex and a minor focal
subarachnoid haemorrhage following a physical assault. His impairments included cognitive slowing with decreased
short term memory, organized skill & language deficit. His physical disabilities included spastic gait (hemiplegic), VII
nerve palsy, mild cerebellar dysfunction, blurred vision and easy fatigue. He was unable to return to work or drive. In
addition to cognitive deficit, right hemi paresis & dizziness; he had symptoms of anxiety & depression. Cannabis improved his gait and brought back lots of his memory. Within 6 months all his symptoms abated with use of cannabis and
he started to look at cannabis as a real medicine. Slowly he also had improvement in cognitive functions, memory, vocabulary and his gait became increasingly better day by day with continued use of cannabis.
