Why should you treat yourself or loved one’s Alzheimer’s Disease with CBD?

Alzheimer’s disease is a type of dementia that, for the most part, affects the elderly population (usually aged 65 or older). However, there’s an early-onset Alzheimer’s which affects the middle-aged population and progresses over time as well. Sixty to eighty percent of all people who suffer from dementia actually have Alzheimer’s disease, which makes it the most common form of this chronic, neurodegenerative disorder.

This brain disease, where the connections between the nerve cells begin to fail, can appear as a result of oxidative stress, inflammation, severe head injury, genetic mutation, and many other environmental or lifestyle factors, resulting in memory loss, mood swings, and emotional withdrawal.

CBD is showing potential to be an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, as it has a unique ability to influence certain receptor systems inside the brain.

The effects of CBD on Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)

CBD is completely safe for both adults and elders because of the following reasons:

  • It’s not psychoactive, so it doesn’t alter one’s sensations and perceptions.
  • It doesn’t have sedative effects (except when taken in extremely high doses), so it doesn’t cause sleepiness and drowsiness during the day.
  • It’s a non-addictive substance; in fact, it can help in overcoming other addictions.

We have naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, most commonly found in the brain and immune system. Since Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder, there’s no wonder why CBD has such a high potential to treat this condition.

CBD binds to the receptors making them function at full capacity, and by doing this, the cannabinoid receptors can more efficiently fight diseases associated with the brain, as well as the central nervous system and the immune system.

According to a study published by Professor Mechoulam, CBD slows down memory loss, the main symptom Alzheimer’s patients’ experience.

According to another study conducted in 2004, CBD plays a huge role in treating this neurodegenerative disorder. As we mentioned, AD can appear as a result of oxidative stress, which occurs due to lack of antioxidants. We know that CBD has antioxidant properties, so it’s only logical that it has neuroprotective benefits, as it neutralizes free radicals while repairing the damaged molecules. What’s more, evidence suggested that CBD also has anti-apoptotic properties (apoptosis = cell death), meaning that CBD protects the deterioration of the cells that cause Alzheimer’s in the first place.

What We Offer

CBD, with its unique ability to influence certain receptor systems inside the brain, is a great ingredient for Alzheimer’s treatment or prevention.

At Green Roads Health, we offer high-quality, pharmacist formulated CBD oils and tinctures with different concentrations of CBD (100mg, 250mg, 350mg, 550mg, 1000mg, and 1500mg). Our oils are highly concentrated with CBD and infused with a pure crystalline CBD isolate (99%) which is derived from industrial hemp of the highest quality. The combination of both produces what’s known as the entourage effect, which is a combination of different components which interact together, thus producing a stronger and more desirable effect for certain conditions, in this case, Alzheimer’s Disease.

When to Use CBD Products

CBD oil tinctures are the fastest and purest way of ingesting CBD. You can start by taking two doses of this product, once in the morning and once in the evening. It is to be used sublingually, by squeezing a couple of drops under the tongue so your veins take it directly into the bloodstream. It’s also very effective if you mix it with a drink or incorporate it into your meal.

We’re invested in producing CBD oils of the utmost quality, so if you or somebody you care about suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease, don’t hesitate to try our CBD products and witness the entourage effect yourself.
