Research does suggest that high concentrations of CBD oil could be useful for managing some of the symptoms of dementia such as agitation and anxiety.
The jury is still out on whether cannabis or its by-products could be used to treat dementia. A lack of strong research studies mean that dubious and anecdotal reports have taken the place of hard evidence.
But more research is needed to understand the long-term effects of taking cannabis, and whether it is an effective and safe way to tackle dementia symptoms.
In the lab
Products that contain CBD are legal and can be bought on the high street or online.
Another study that gave both THC and CBD oil to mice with symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease showed an improved in learning and had less evidence of amyloid clumps in their bodies.
If you have any questions or concerns about cannabis use and the risk of dementia or other brain disorders, please talk to your GP.
Currently there is no evidence to show that cannabis or cannabis oil (CBD oil) can stop, reverse or prevent dementia.
ABOUT CBD GLOBAL SCIENCES INC.
CBD Global Sciences, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Strasburg Pharms, grows and operates irrigated land in Colorado, that grows hemp with only all-natural Colorado water, soil, sun and nutrients and NEVER sprayed with pesticides or chemicals. Our genetics are hand selected and maintained to present the best cannabinoid profile with extremely high CBD.
Cannabidiol, or CBD, continues to gain support as a remedy for everything from stress to bacterial infections. A new study reveals marijuana’s non-psychoactive ingredient may also be the key to stopping the triggers for Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers from the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say high doses of CBD restores the function of key proteins that clean up beta-amyloid plaque buildups in the brain. These clumps are one of the major causes of Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of dementia.
Brad Wyatt, CEO of CBD Global Sciences, shared, “I always knew that science would be an integral for the approval and deployment of CBD and other cannabinoids for global use as a treatment for a multitude of ailments. We are seeing this happen on many different fronts, further proving the need for the all-natural remedy for the human body. I believe that we will discover through research and clinical trials that the basic compounds found in the cannabis plant will continue to fill a plethora of deficiencies that the human body needs.”
In addition to the foregoing, the Company provides the following update to the previously announced matter with one of its subsidiaries, Global NV Corporation (“GNV”). As reported, GNV received a claim from a former landlord with respect to a commercial lease agreement entered into by GNV in October 2018 (the “Lease”). The Lease was abandoned by GNV in January 2019 due to Adams County Fire Department identifying the need for upgraded sprinkler systems that were not highlighted by the landlord as being required for the type of operation when GNV took possession of the property. Neither the landlord or GNV believed it was their responsibility to improve the facility as required by Adams County FD. The landlord under the Lease seeks to recover from GNV unpaid lease payments for the remainder of the Lease period (subject to mitigation) in the gross claimed amount of $550,000 plus fees. Management of GNV is vigorously defending the claim. To date, the Landlord has become an aggressive creditor pushing the Company to file for protection under the Chapter 11 (subsection(v)) bankruptcy laws in the United States for the subsidiary company, allowing the subsidiary to reorganize its debt and present a plan for GNV’s continued operations. Formal documents were filed for Global NV and its subsidiary Strasburg Pharms on March 23, 2021. CBD Global, GNV’s parent company, has a vested interest in successfully navigating through this matter despite the creditor’s claims.
Denver, Colorado, March 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — CBD Global Sciences, Inc. (OTC: CBDNF) (CSE: CBDN) (Frankfurt:GS3), (“CBD Global” or the “Company”), is pleased to share that a recent study has revealed that CBD may be key to stopping triggers for Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta University.
Their study finds a two-week treatment course in mice boosted the proteins TREM2 and IL-33, both of which contribute to the brain’s immune cells being able to clean out dead cells and other debris in the body. When plaques pile up in the brain, they start interfering with the communication between neurons and lead to brain cell death. Levels of both proteins decrease in patients with Alzheimer’s.
