The most commonly reported potential side effects of CBD usage were diarrhea and bloating, with some also reporting. Some research in laboratory settings has suggested that components of cannabis could have an effect on some of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common dementia, accounting for 50–60% of all cases. . Antioxidant effects have been ascribed to CBD [27,33]. Still, the.
on dementia treatment cannabidiol effects
CBD oil is the most common form of administration of the compound with the oil contained in a gel cap or dropper bottle. The dementia related conditions that can be helped by CBD include: There are three ways which CBD can work to improve health outcomes for persons with dementia; by reducing inflammation, by reducing oxygen build up and by working as a brain stimulant and neuroprotectant.
In recent studies, CBD has been shown to reduce or remove the impact of inflammation, oxygen build up and brain cell decline. When inflammation happens in the brain, oxygen is released as a result. The greater the inflammation, the greater the negative impact. Memory loss and other brain deterioration indirectly leads to increased oxygen in the brain. CBD is an antioxidant, which helps reduce the problems associated with oxygen stress. Brain functions negatively impacted by oxygen stress can be improved by using CBD.
The potential of stimulating brain tissue was recently discovered as a potential benefit of CBD. A study by Australian researchers Tim Karl and Carl Group found that CBD promotes the growth and development of brain cells, which were shown to reduce the decline of memory and other brain functions.
To effectively treat vascular dementia, a study by the US National Institute of Health NIH found that activating CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain helped recover better blood flow to the brain. Activating the CB2 receptors with CBD has increased brain cell activity and helped reduce brain cell damage commonly associated with vascular dementia. Lewy body dementia LBD is a disease associated with abnormal deposits of a protein called alpha-synuclein in the brain.
These deposits, called Lewy bodies, affect chemicals in the brain whose changes, in turn, can lead to problems with thinking, sleeping, movement, behavior, and mood. Unlike most pain, anxiety or behavior management drugs, CBD does not block acetylcholine, the main chemical that LBD attacks.
Research has shown that CBD can be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, reduce motor symptoms tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and maintain circadian sleep rhythms. Unlike most anti-psychotic drugs, CBD does not lead to an increased risk of death. Research has shown that CBD can be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, reduce anxiety, reduce motor symptoms tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and maintain circadian sleep rhythms.
The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. The thing is, THC tetrahydrocannabinol is what gives cannabis its mind-altering effects. Note that there are CBD-centered studies on its effects on dementia though.
The researchers also said the subjects started to perform like healthy animals again. These studies show that CBD reverses dementia. To be more specific, DNA fragmentation generation of reactive oxygen species. In a nutshell, the study reveals that CBD can help with minimizing oxidative stress in people with AD.
They acknowledge the need for more studies though. As you can see, clinical findings show CBD can help with dementia. Granted, all scientists and researchers agree more studies are in order. As such, patients should give CBD oil for dementia a well-deserved try. We offer free shipping on all orders! Want it there faster? We also offer a wide range of shipping upgrades.

Of every 10 of these dementia patients, six…. I still do everything I have always done. Drive,take care of the house, grocery shop and prepare meals, pay my own bills etc. If you have a medical marijuana dispensary you go to, talk to them. I am very fortunate that the one I go to has a Medical Doctor on staff and is able to give me advice on dosage etc. They have to be careful what they advise, but it is very helpful to have their input.
Good luck and feel free to contact me if you want to chat. I am only giving my dad 2. I personally do not like the feeling of edibles if you take too much they can make you dizzy. I find the 2. The Puckers candy breaks up easily and tastes like a lemon drop. My dad likes it a lot and it is helping him sleep through the night for the first time in years.
Hello, has anyone seen improvement of the below Alzheimers symptoms with medical marijuana or oils? Please help If we could get her to go to sleep many of these symptoms would be solved. If you can get it, give her THC at night. That should do it. If you get marijauna that she has to smoke have her smoke some a couple of times a day, but especially at night before bed.
I have early stage of dementia mild cognitive impairment , and I have stayed at this stage for quite some time. If you can get it for her, start out with small doses a couple of times a day and see how she tolerates it. When you figure out a dose, then at bedtime give her a bigger dose. If you can also get CBD, give her that a couple of times during the day.
I would be happy to stay in contact with you. If you would like that also, then let me know and maybe we could exchange email addresses or stay in contact through messaging on Facebook.
There are 3 to choose from, Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid mix of both. I have ordered a vape and intend to buy resin. I would like to try to prevent the plaque build-up that happens insidiously for years before becoming symptomatic.
For night-time, an Indica dominant hybrid would be better for sleep. Hello Bruce, glad it is of help to her, may I ask where you purchase as I also have health issues and prefer to not take pharmaceuticals, thank you.
Now your holy weed lowers cholesterol and blood pressure? I did not realize it lowers cholesterol. I became a Vegan many years ago to help lower my cholesterol. It really did help that much. I will not take the cholesterol meds. That has helped a great deal. Just recently, I started to feel like I may need more during the day, so I will work on that after the Holidays are over. You have serious anger management issues, probably best dealt with through hospitalization and a pre-frontal lobotomy.
Since entering this thread, your TOTAL contribution has been laughing off the pain of others, and whether you agree or disagree with sometimes desperately sought answers, you might at least respect the obligation to provide evidence for your voluminous gorps. What a disgusting lunatic, you are… come back and see us after Mommy wipes your nose and powders your Pampers….
That is just rich! I feel you about people pushing a certain product and sure there are predatory ass holes out there but there is also tons of valid studies showing that CBD and thc and other cannabinoids help and or heal a great many things.
I am next in line and have been diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment. I take CBD 2 times during the day, late morning and late afternoon. I take THC at bedtime. It has helped tremendously! I have been on this regimen for at least a couple of years and I have progresses some, but not enough to change my lifestyle a lot. Cook all of my Husband and my meals. Within just a few months she was gone. She had Ms so she was going anyway, but the psychosis was pure horror for all involved.
And the first thing they should do is seek the advice of an anonymous internet poster with a Google U degree? On a shitty blog that still uses Disqus?
Alcohol and cigarettes are physically adictive, far more so than cannabis, but they are completely legal like food. Your argument has no sense of perspective, whcih often happens when your really have no argument. However, as a former I have now tried several things and none have proven to be addictive for me except sugar.
CBD oil has been lifesaving for me to treat severe anxiety — but unlike smoking pot it does not give me an even more urgent desire for the sugar. Would that be the God you pray to? Your diseases were likely a combination of genetic predisposition and your poor lifestyle choices. I am glad science aided you in your recovery. Preliminary research suggests real efficacy in THC squelching the Alzheimer inducing amyloid plaque at its root.
I disagree that cannabis is addictive…. I will say that can be habituating…. Smh … A different strains for a different cures … This is y its illegal.. I have video evidence of her miraculous improvement after we took her out of the mental institute where they had her on loads of very damaging seizure causing meds!!!
We nearly lost her!!! She started singing, dancing and even was able to go to the toilet by herself in just 7weeks on the oil and other beautiful natural medication as well as a very high nutrient dense diet she was on. I have become incredibly desperate and am now trying to raise funds to save my mums life! I am SO SORRY that your mum had to die in their evil money sucking hands and it is for your mum and others that i MUST raise this money to prove this is possible and that people like my mum and yours do not have to suffer a horrible death!
My mum is in South Africa in that mental institute where they tie her to a chair all day and violate her body!!! Do you know of anyone that could help us? Or is there anyone on this chat that could help us? Its been almost 4weeks since i started her campaign and we are no where close to the amount we need!!!
Most people in my life will not approve of the oil so this is why i am reaching out to people like you and like mindeds now… in hope that something might actually happen! Im even thinking of contacting cannabis researchers….
The only thing Marijuana has been proven to be dangerous too? Was in a car accident in july.. My life just came back to normal no more pills. Similarly, tolerance, withdrawal, and physical dependency are entirely different aspects of different kinds of addiction… but in terms of balancing safety and efficacy, the likelihood of tolerance, physical withdrawal, lethality of overdose, cancer potential, metabolite toxicity, biochemical interactions are kindof high up on the list.
Can any cannabinoids really improve Alzheimer symptoms? But to prevent research and squelch hope for big pharma greed is indeed preposterous. In Canada Diamorphine heroin is used as a post operative pain medication in some cases. Oxycontin and heroin are both derived from the same plant.
Oxycontin is a synthetic opiate, or opioid. They are the same. Not the same because one is pharmaceutical grade and the other is street grade. With Oxycontin people know exactly what it is and what it will do and Heroin being a street drug primarily is cut with all sorts of things that are awful, and many times unknown. This is an important distinction that must be made when comparing the two drugs. Its greater worth is as an agent for improving brain functioning and activity, with one, notable physiological exception.
As a survivor of multiple chemotherapy treatments, earlier in my life, I can speak to its incredible properties, to relieve nausea! It changes the perception of the experience of pain in the mind. It allows one to observe pain from a distance, not be consumed by it.
Before you express more uninformed mind-vomit, google how opiates chemically interrupt pain transmission, as opposed to cannabis, which effects the mind that processes the input. Otherwise, continue to embarrass yourself. Your friends and family think your nuts so all you have is this silly page.
You are projecting Google it. Not much for learning, are you? So many bullshit statements made in one paragraph. Could it be you are a big pharma troll? Your motives are suspect. Who fears science but those who may lose profit? That must be it! The pharmaceutical industry would LOVE nothing more than to research marijuana. You seem quite uneducated.
I, however, do work in the profession. What, then, is your specialty? That is a condition, not a specialty. I work in interventional radiology. I just looked over your posts against the world.
You are quite angry…you must be suffering. Your energy would be better spent elsewhere. You do know that cannabinoids possess neuroprotectant properties right? There are patents stating such studies. That was quite funny. Not all are uneducated. You sound smart, you know this. How about kjnowing that acetaminophen caused liver damage when combined with alcohol but allowing nyquil to be marketed for 15 years AFTER this was discovered. The facts eluded them for 15 years apparently while profits were taken.
The medical community knows that combining a set of medicine and alcohol can cause liver damage. They do not dictate what Proctor and Gamble sells or how they market. They also do not have control over the ignorance of consumers. Although, I think of the Medical Community in a different context, their ability to get their facts right can still be skewed by factors other than cash, cash, and more cash.
Further, the Neo-Conservative, Christian Revivalists, see Marijuana as being a plague, straight from the bowels of Hell, while thinking nothing of sharing a few beers during the picnic, after Sunday services, or firing up the still, hidden out in the woods.
Pot may be addictive, I will not argue that, however the prescribed medications are also highly addictive. If you were to stop taking anti-psychotics or benzos you could have serious and possibly life threatening withdrawal symptoms. With pot you would probably just be a little grumpy. Any stimulus that functions as reinforcement will almost invariably increase the probability of the behavior producing such a source of reinforcement. You simply miss marijuana as you would miss other non-addictive reinforcers.
Does he exhibit behavior like a heroin addict during withdrawal? The same is true of marijuana. One might speculate that the major reason that marijuana is not addictive is because of its long half-life.
Are the antidepressants, that are prescribed regularly, addictive? With all the altzheimers going around in the US millions there are almost no effective treatments, let alone treatments that treat causes and not symptoms of the disease. Pigheaded stupidity and greed will delay the implementation of this, but many are already treatiing it. The plant has been used as a medicine for 10, years. The drug war has malignant intent. No one with ALZ should be afraid of police for using cannabis oil as medicine.
It is the only thing free of harm that restores cognition. People quit talking to us long before we can not speak, and most communication is thru facial expression and body language. The researchers in USA do not want to know how it works because their funding is based on worn out wrong theory. I will not give in to this disease like my Mother and Grandmother did. As soon as I was diagnosed with MCI, I became a Vegan should have done that a long time ago and started exercising so much I have destroyed my knees.
I really have not progressed a great deal since I was diagnosed several years ago. We have no plans to move so as long as I am living in a Medical Marijuana state, I will continue to use it. The dispensary I go to actually has an MD on staff, which is really good because he can be helpful with respect to dosing and strains. So far my life has not changed dramatically and I truly believe it is because of Cannabis.
Sorry but l disagree. Can you honestly say that you may not have been subject to such behaviors and ailments, had you never been a smoker? This is outright false. As a long time marijuana user I can tell you the night sweats, rage-induction and vertigo experienced during withdrawal are awful. To each his own, JM! You are little more than a contemptible clod.
Cannabis is not physically addicting like the hard drugs it is classified with a governmental mistake made by law enforcement not doctors , however it is mildly addicting in psychological terms.
Most of us do NOT have an issue other than we like it! Some do have an issue, and there the best thing to say may be: Hi Dale, It is so amazing to see that everyday more and more people know the truth, no doubt we will spread all over this planet!
Dale, It is and always has been about the money and control. All the words used to put Cannabis in a negative light are now being turned around with science and the truth. The US government was able to obtain patents for the medicine in Cannabis through the Dept.
America is the Land of Hypocrisy! America Land of the Free? To get back to the previous post abut it being addictive. I need it for my illness because it really does a decent job of lessening my symptoms. Years ago, when I used it I wanted it because I liked the way that it made me feel and wanted to keep doing it to feel good.
I have been addicted for years. I want to give up but find it very hard. I smoked weed for yrs and quit when I got tired of it. I never became addicted. Now sugar that is another issue——highly addictive at least to me. To me any addictive feelings one may get from Cannabis is there body simply telling them to not stop doing good to me. There is a lot of great Medical Cannabis news coming out but sadly it must all be imported because of the lame ass prohibition still on Cannabis.
Thanks, I have been doing a lot of research and I am tired of the lack of Freedom we have in America because of the Drug War. It affects everyone negatively! The US Governemnt owns the patent U. Patent to the medicine in Cannabis for a reason! Pat, I am happy you are able to get some relief. He gets relief and comfort from smoking cannabis and smoking cigarettes separately. I am 74 yrs of age and when I am not longer fit enough to look after him, they will put my grandson in a home and take away the cannabis because it has a detrimental affect on the brain he only has a few years left to live!
The care homes are all non-smoking now so he will not be able to smoke cigarettes either! How bloody cruel is this? Cannabis helps one deal with pain better than opioids.
The side effects of analgesics are legion, they are addicting, and have to be taken on a scheduled basis, and if not taken as prescribed, the pain comes back with a vengeance. If you stop the use of cannabis, there are no withdrawal symptoms. One who has lived through the experience. And considering all the health benefits, and lack of harmful effects..
Sadly in America more people are killed by legal prescription drugs taken illegally than all the illicit drugs put together! America is the Land of Great Hypocrisy where the legendary lies from our government over many years have been responsible for countless deaths. Isreal leads the World with knowledge in this area… http: When campaigning for a pro-pot gubernatorial candidate, The niche I carved out for myself was to contact every PA County Medical Society.
The phones might as well be answered by the AMA. I got into it because I have a background in research some, neurological. I have Dementia and hit the books looking for an answer for myself. My first call to a County Medical Society, I got the director. How can I help? In the real world, these scientifically founded professionals keep abreast of the newest findings.
That is, if THC really does help the patients with their dementia. There are no addictive properties or long term negative effects with Cannabis. Quit painkiller opiates or Nicotine cold turkey. All this s fear mongering reefermadness bullshit is slowing down the advancement of canna based, life saving medicines.
People are suffering and all articles like this and prohibition in general are doing, is continuing their needles suffering. Shatter or wax works better for me than smoking cannabis, with no smoke and no noticeable weed smell. Shatter is part of the overdose culture that stems from alcohol culture all over the world.
It helped her sleep and calmed her considerably, no hallucinations and also made her very hungry…She was currently taking Effexor which had some calming effects but the agitation was still present unlike with the cannabis…I am going to discuss the possibility with her Dr…. There is no current treatment. She is 80, so we are not concerned about potential long-term effects or addiction.
At her age, the immediate challenges of managing this disease take priority. We fully support any regulations that aim to inhibit the misuse and exploitation of otherwise beneficial medical marijuana programs.
So a couple tokes a night for five years. So I can say that marijuana was a lot better than any pill they have out today. Thank you for sharing your first hand experience. Will inform my children… It is in their bloodline. Hope the good outweighs the bad. My father has dementia from a bad fall and he hit his head. After that he has gotten worse and worse. He is like Dr. Okay one minute and angry the next minute.
I am thinking about trying medical marijuana for him. His behavior in the late afternoon early evening is getting very hard to manage. He throws his walker at people and is very restless constantly getting up and down out of bed.
We all need help! Cannabis plant is best. A friend grew it, when I put a snapped off, dried, raw bud in my mouth and slept with it tucked in there snugged down between teeth and lip after many months of coughing myself awake, I finally and instantly stopped coughing and slept beautifully.
Woke up rested, and feeling mellow and happy. Hemp oil too, has many health benefits and you can buy it in Tesco…. She has ALZ and her physician has tried every prescription available to treat her. My Mom and our family were living a nightmare until this treatment! It slows her mind down enough for her to relax and stop the constant fidgeting.
She also sleeps much better. This disease is horrible for a patient but it is absolutely devastating for their loved ones.
I am so thrilled to read this about your dad. I applaud you for thinking outside of the box and doing this for your dad. Sounds like trusting your instincts is serving you well.
Bravo for using your own initiative. Frankincense, cannabis hemp generally , colloidal silver are just a few of natures answers to many ailments. Thank you for sharing.. I want to make edibles. Music has been our drug of choice. Thanks for your story. I contacted HIV from my wife, my husband died 2 years ago from this disease, my life was gradually coming to an end living with this deadly disease daily, i did all i could to get cured from this disease but all was in vain, until i saw a post on health forum about a DR called Dr.
Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother etc, etc. My Neurologist has been very pleased with how I am doing and will I continue unless it stops being helpfull. How did you arrive at yours? I am sorry that this reply has taken so long, but I do not check this site very often.
If you find or have found a good clinic, they should be able to help. Here in Michigan the dispensaries cannot advise on dosage etc.
If you are still have questions, let me know. P vaugn, could you please contact me? I would be interested in hearing more about how this works for you as you move forward…. I have tried co for my father, my prob is I do not know if I am giving enough or not. Of course, my mother is very skeptical about the whole thing. I just need to know where to go from here. The doctor here in fla will not agree of benefits or least I have not found one that does. Any information would be great.
Thanks for any information. There was a great study just came out from Salk Institute that offers very plausible model. I would like to try the oil. Just do a Google search for canna oil. There is tons of info out there. Its less addictive and has fewer health consequences than Caffiene!
I hope they try at least cannabis compounds as alternatives to antipsychotics for those who need them. If you research this you will find that the synapse is effected by Alzheimer dementia etc. Synapse are basically connectors and also get affected by POT.
I am not talking about getting stoned either. I hit or 2 occasionally. Wait if they did a true study and it worked then billions could be lost. The drug companies cant have that. All medical and genetic disorders including NPC3 have been ruled out. His rapid progression is crazy! But, go figure we live in America and cannabis is illegal and no active research and go figure no help for children with Dementia.
My impression is that EEG is used primarily to diagnose seizure activity. How is it applied to cases of dementia? I recently signed a petition to release parents serving prison sentences that used Cannabis to treat an illness.
The son developed Muscular Dystrophy after he was given the polio vaccine. Their children had to leave Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends….. The pro vax movement will stop WHEN mercury and aluminum are removed from them. My child is vaccinated but I should have researched the ingredients before I vaccinated him. He was lucky that he did not have a problem but there are many that draw the short straw. Nobody in my family will EVER get another vaccine.
These metals are linked to every neurological disorder in existence! I will try anything on my father. He verbally disrespects my mother and she takes it because she loves him. His dementia only gets worse. She gave me permission to dose him to control his violent mood swings. Personally he is opposed to it; but the only other choice is to put him in a home.
Anyone who spends any time with this disease knows nothing can make it worse and any glimmer of help is sent from God. I have used it legally for my own use since it became legal in the late 90s. It controls my cholesterol, blood pressure and replaces injections I took several times a week to treat migraines.
It has no addictive properties. I used it to stop smoking. Addiction is the last thing anyone should argue.
Thanks for this information. Anybody else notice how easy it is to debunk these statements about addictiveness and long term effects? So a majority of people will find they are not addicted and will find a majority that have a similar experience. It may seem non problematic to be addicted to weed but it interferes with daily functioning eg diminished motivation, memory for days after smoking, and judgements which is problematic for education and employment.
This is also hard for people living with the addicted person. The risk of addiction may be worth it for Alzheimers particular for the elderly who have symptoms that harm the person and others. But to ignore the probability and costs of addiction would be medically unethical. Years ago I sent the world class pot-heads think Hank Williams, Jr to offshore platforms in middle of Gulf of Mexico, and none ever had problem leaving pot behind. For example maybe try some THC vapor or a few bowls each day.
A couple bowls before every meal might help. An good edible, cookies or brownies, in the morning can have you high until the afternoon. Rediculas to try to judge effective use as a medicine at 1. Need to be at leat 50mg 3 times a day to improve function and mental state. I have seen it… use a realistic dose of cannabis doctors if your going to do studies… mg to mg is a daily dose of cannabis not 1.
Low doses about 2. She hits the floor running at am.. She barely sleeps and that means neither do i. Same with my Mom. She stayed a wake all night constantly tugging at her pajamas.
She would go several days without sleep. Her mind would not slow down so she could rest. She is a different person after four drops of Cannabis Oil: It gives her peace. This has kept her at home with us instead of in a nursing home. What concerns me is the synthetic cannabinoids that are being promoted by these articles.
The plant, the whole plant, and nothing but the plant. Restore this non-toxic, miraculous, nutritious and useful plant to we-the-people. My best friend has smoked 49 years, and he computes fractional powers like 3. He memorized complete table of logarithms to 5 places to do math fast. I still can do Calculus, nuclear physics and programing after 40 years. He still recognizes everyone and normal life is ok, but, he forgets a lot of little stuff that used to be easy. He went out to feed the animals one night, fed all but one, why?
He has trouble remembering how to get the trailer hooked up to the truck. Any input would be helpful. Thanx, A worried boy. CBD also helps, but is only about half as effective. Josef Goebbels would be happy;. James Gavin Thomas was diagnosed with a cancer 16 July and have been in the medical drugs but the cancer grew larger. I heard that cannabis oil and its healing efficiency and I decided to use cannabis oil treatment and cannabis oil was gotten from Dr.
Michael Rogers Foundation via e-mail: After taking this oil treatment for 90 days, I was completely healed and my cancer disappeared. I share this information for the patient with cancer and all I want to know that Rick Simpson oil cannabis can cure all types of cancer and also longer life span. It heals all other conditions applicable miracleousy.
Michael Rogers if you are in need of oil. My Alzheimers family member had bouts of rage that I spoke to her geropsychiatrist about. He reluctantly offered Risperidone as a solution because of something like 1 in users die.
Fortunately we made some dosage adjustments to her medications which seem to have resolved it for now.
