Cannabis Oil for Dementia

Dementia is not on particular disease. This term refers to a set of symptoms associated with deterioration in memory or cognitive skills, to the extent that the patient battles to complete normal daily activities.  Most dementia cases (60-80%) are Alzheimer’s disease while Vascular dementia, which occurs after a stroke, is the second most common dementia type. But there are many other conditions that can cause symptoms of dementia. Some are reversible, such as thyroid problems and vitamin deficiencies.

How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Dementia?

Some studies have that found taking cannabis could help to manage some behavioural symptoms of dementia such as that agitation or aggression. While there is currently no scientific evidence that cannabis can help to prevent the disease, anecdotal evidence is mounting that it does enhance quality of life for each patient.

Scientists have meanwhile shown interest in the role of the endocannabinoid system to help treat Alzheimer’s disease. Some studies have shown that THC could remove amyloid clumps (hallmarks of Alzheimer’s) from nerve cells grown in a lab.  Other researchers believe that using CBD to target CB2 receptors could manage microglia activity, ending the potentially harmful overactivation of the immune system in the brain.
