Marijuana as the Best Treatment for Dementia
The number of people in the United States with dementia has increased to the point where it is now classified as an epidemic. Also, Alzheimer’s Disease is one of the most common forms of dementia and over 12% of Americans aged 65+ are afflicted with it. Almost half the population that is aged 85+ has this condition and overall, dementia accounts for the deaths of one-third of seniors. Buy marijuana online.
The large baby boomer population, coupled with increased life expectancy, means the number of people likely to get dementia is set to skyrocket in the near future. With no known cure, and existing treatment options costing a fortune, people are starting to turn to cannabis for dementia as an option.
What Is Dementia?
It is an umbrella term used to describe a group of symptoms including memory loss and issues with problem-solving, language, and thinking. Such changes are usually minor to begin with, but over time they become so severe that they massively impact a person’s quality of life. Buy marijuana online.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by diseases such as strokes or Alzheimer’s.
Symptoms depend on the parts of the brain that get damaged and the disease that’s causing dementia. In many cases, an individual with dementia will have problems with the following:
- Everyday memory: They struggle to recall events that recently occurred.
Planning, Organizing or Concentrating: In severe cases, a person with dementia is unable to remember the sequence of tasks necessary to prepare and cook a meal for example.
- Language: They are unable to follow a conversation. Buy marijuana online.
- Visuospatial Skills: An inability to judge distances or see objects in 3D.
- Orientation: Difficulty keeping track of the time or their location.
It is normal for someone with dementia to have sudden mood changes and sadly, the condition only gets worse over time. While Alzheimer’s is the most common cause of dementia, there are several more including:
- Vascular dementia.
- Mixed dementia.
- Dementia with Lewy bodies.
- Frontotemporal dementia such as Pick’s disease.
- Corticobasal degeneration.
- Progressive supranuclear palsy.
In the vast majority of cases, there is no cure for dementia. Also, the best a patient can hope for is to live a decent life with the condition. Also, the most commonly used drugs for Alzheimer’s patients are galantamine, rivastigmine, or donepezil. More so, they are designed to help with motivation, memory, and concentration to assist the user in daily life. Buy marijuana online.
Studies have found that there is an increased risk of death from cardiovascular events caused by excessive sedation. In other words, dementia drugs could kill a person just as easily as help them. This, as well as the high costs, explain why people are turning towards cannabis. Buy marijuana online. Evidence that weed could at least alleviate symptoms helps too, but could it do more?
Is Marijuana for Dementia Effective?
According to researchers at California’s Salk Institute, the answer is an overwhelming ‘YES’. Their study has found evidence that cannabinoids such as THC and CBD could help remove dangerous dementia proteins from brain cells. Professor David Schubert led the study and in early 2017, he spoke of his frustration about the existing anti-marijuana laws that are preventing the plant from being studied in-depth. Buy marijuana online.
In March 2017, he said that he submitted an application to the DEA in December 2016 to use weed extracts on mice for a different study but had received no response.
In the study, that was completed, Schubert’s team used a tiny amount of synthetically developed cannabinoids and discovered that they helped with the removal of a harmful plaque associated with dementia. Buy marijuana online.
The name of the protein is amyloid beta and the plaque it forms destroys nerve cells in the brain. Also, this led scientists to believe that amyloid beta appears before the symptoms of Alzheimer’s.
Another study, by Aso et al. in 2015, gave mice that showed Alzheimer’s Disease symptoms a THC and CBD combo. They discovered that the mice displayed an improvement in learning skills and there was less evidence of amyloid beta clumps in their brains. Buy marijuana online. The major issue is that there have been no widespread clinical trials to look into the effects of marijuana on dementia in human patients.
The main reason why there could be a link is the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Studies have found that low doses of THC restore memory and learning in mice. Also, the changes occurred because of an impact on the hippocampus but unfortunately, no research exists to study this particular link between cannabis and dementia. Buy marijuana online USA.

Final Thoughts on Cannabis for Dementia
As things stand, none of the ‘traditional’ dementia treatments come close to offering a cure and do little other than provide temporary relief with a great number of risks attached.
Research into marijuana’s effects on dementia is still in its embryonic stages but early signs are good.
There is a possibility, albeit a small one, that cannabis could actually reverse the onset of dementia; what an extraordinary discovery that would be.
Cannabis plants contain dozens of chemical compounds called cannabinoids.
These naturally occurring components are responsible for producing many of the effects — both negative and positive — of cannabis use. Buy marijuana online.
Researchers still don’t understand what all of the cannabinoids do, but they have identified two main ones — tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) — as well as several less common compounds. Buy marijuana online USA.

- THC. THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis plants. It’s responsible for the “high” or state of euphoria associated with cannabis use. Levels of THC have been increasing as growers try to create hybrids with a greater concentration of the compound.
- CBD. CBD is non-impairing or non-euphoric. It doesn’t cause a “high.” However, it may produce many physical benefits, such as reducing pain and nausea, preventing seizures, and easing migraine.
- CBN. Cannabinol (CBN) is used to ease symptoms and side effects of neurological conditions, including epilepsy, seizures, and uncontrollable muscle stiffness. Buy marijuana online .
- THCA. Tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) is similar to THC, but it doesn’t cause any psychoactive effects. Its potential benefits include reducing inflammation caused by arthritis and autoimmune diseases. It may also help reduce symptoms of neurological conditions like Parkinson’s disease and ALS.
- CBG. Cannabigerol (CBG) is thought to help reduce anxiety and symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression.

A great deal of attention is paid to the amount of THC and CBD in a given strain, but newer research suggests that terpenes may be just as impactful.
Terpenes are another naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant.
The terpenes present directly affect the plant’s smell. They may also influence the effects that specific strains produce. Buy marijuana online.
Common terpenes include:
- Bisabolol. With notes of chamomile and tea tree oil, the terpene bisabolol is thought to help reduce inflammation and irritation. Also, it may also have microbial and pain-reducing effects.
- Caryophyllene. The peppery, spicy molecule may help reduce anxiety, ease symptoms of depression, and improve ulcers. Buy weed online USA.
- Linalool. Linalool is said to help improve relaxation and boost mood with its floral notes.

How to choose the right product for you
When you’re looking for the right cannabis product for you, keep these considerations in mind:
- Know what you’re trying to achieve. What you’re trying to feel or treat will help you narrow your options. Talk with the dispensary employee about your goals for cannabis use, whether that’s treating insomnia, reducing anxiety, or increasing energy.
- Understand your tolerance. Some strains, such as Pineapple Express, are considered “entry level.” Their effects are typically mild and tolerable. Strains with higher levels of cannabinoids may be too potent for a first-time user. Buy marijuana online USA.
- Consider your medical history. While cannabis is a natural product, it can cause intense effects. Before you try cannabis, you need to consider possible interactions with existing medical conditions and medications. When in doubt, ask a doctor or other healthcare professional about your individual benefits and potential risks.
- Decide on a desired consumption method. Each technique for consuming cannabis has benefits and drawbacks. If you smoke or vape cannabis, you may feel effects more quickly, but it can irritate your lungs and airways. Gummies, chewables, and foods may be easier to tolerate, but the effects take longer, and they may be much more potent than inhalation. Buy marijuana online USA.
