Within the United States, approximately 5.7 million people are living with dementia. Alzheimer’s disease accounts for approximately 60%–70% of these cases, followed by vascular dementias.
Dementia is a group of conditions characterized by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgment. Dementia is characterized by forgetfulness, limited social skills, and thinking abilities so impaired that it interferes with daily functioning.
Treatment for dementia includes rehabilitation therapy, occupational therapy, and prescribed medications. Medications used to treat dementia include Memantine, Rivastigmine, Galantamine, and Donepezil. Each prescribed medication contains negative side effects that include dizziness, confusion, headache, constipation, cough, high blood pressure, backache, fainting, vomiting, shortness of breath, fatigue, kidney failure, brain blockage, stroke, liver failure, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, tremors, insomnia, depression, mood swings, hallucinations and skin rash.
CBD is a non-psychoactive compound derived from the hemp plant known for its potential therapeutic effects. Studies show that CBD may help improve dementia without the negative side effects of prescribed medications.
According to researchers at California’s Salk Institute, their 2017 study has found evidence that cannabinoids such as CBD could potentially help remove dementia from, and increase connections between, brain cells.There are three ways CBD may help to improve health outcomes for people with dementia.
CBD may help reduce inflammation, reduce oxygen buildup, and act as a brain stimulant and neuroprotectant. CBD may also reduce stress and anxiety in the individual with dementia as well as reduce the decline of memory and other brain functions.
