Alzheimer’s

 

According to the Mayo Clinic, “Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurologic disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy) and brain cells to die. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that affects a person’s ability to function independently.

Approximately 5.8 million people in the United States age 65 and older live with Alzheimer’s disease. Of those, 80% are 75 years old and older. Out of the approximately 50 million people worldwide with dementia, between 60% and 70% are estimated to have Alzheimer’s disease.” https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/alzheimers-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20350447

Everyday we uncover more about the potential preventative properties of cannabis and how this knowledge can be applied to major medical conditions. The following studies focus on independent cannabinoids and neuroprotection. As always, please consult your doctors prior to starting up a cannabis regimen, as it can interfere with some standard medications. They don’t have to like it, as long as it’s safe for you, but they do have to respect your freedom of choice when it comes to your own healthcare.
