Alzheimer’s is a type of brain disorder that causes problems with memory, thinking, and behavior. It is a gradually progressive condition that can be lifelong. It is very common in Canada, with more than 10.000 new cases every year.
Alzheimer’s disease has no known cure yet. Still, treatments with medication and alternative natural medications can help slow the progression of the disease and alleviate some of the symptoms to improve the quality of life.
Memory loss is the key symptom of Alzheimer’s disease. Early signs include difficulty remembering recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, memory impairments worsen, and other symptoms develop.
Studies have shown that CBD and other cannabinoids have neuroprotective properties that can improve memory in Alzheimer’s patients.

How CBD help with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
CBD has many properties that can help to prevent and protect the brain cell and activities that may negatively impact cognitive function — altering thought processing, memory, and decision making.
CBD oil has been found to improve the health of those who have Alzheimer’s and dementia by increasing the blood flow in the brain and reducing oxidative damage, reducing inflammation, and stimulating and protecting the brain.
CBD oil can also help to improve the individual’s overall quality of life by reducing anxiety and stress that can trigger episodes of aggression.
Here are some of the many ways CBD oil can help with Alzheimer’s and dementia symptoms:
- It helps to increase blood flow to the brain
- It can protect the brain from damage
- It helps to reduce oxidative damage
- It can improve the quality of sleep
- It can reduce cognitive decline
- It can improve memory function
- It can help to reduce anxiety
The type and method of consumption of CBD may be different for each person, and the ideal dosage too. It is important to implement a daily CBD intake routine, as the positive effects of CBD may only start to appear after several weeks and, in some cases, several months.
If the patient is already taking prescribed medication, we suggest talking to a doctor before using CBD for Alzheimer’s and dementia as CBD may react with some medications.
