The importance of memory goes beyond simply remembering what we wore last Tuesday but remembering important milestones in our lives. As we age, we tend to start forgetting more than usual which can be very frustrating and even worrisome.
Memory is the faculty of the brain by which data or information is encoded, stored, and retrieved when needed. It is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. There are many different reasons why we could be experiencing memory loss. Possible causes include medications, minor head trauma or injury, lack of sleep, emotional disorders, alcoholism, Vit B-12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, and possibly brain disease.
Some common signs or symptoms associated with memory loss include forgetfulness, difficulty finding the right words, changes in mood, confusion, a failing sense of direction, and difficulty completing normal tasks. There are two common types of medication being used cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine which help to treat cognitive symptoms like memory loss and confusion. However, with any medications side effects always come into mind.

Unlike CBD which does not cause side effects or long-term use complications. CBD is an antioxidant, which helps reduce the problems associated with oxygen stress. In clinical trials, CBD has shown the ability to reverse and even prevent the development of Alzheimer’s negative impact. CBD produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors.
