Some studies have that found taking cannabis could help to manage some behavioural symptoms of dementia. However, there is currently no evidence that . Recent studies have taken a look at the effects of medical marijuana on Alzheimer's to treat its difficult symptoms. Learn more about this.
Research Dementia – Medicinal Cannabis Alzheimer’s &
America is the Land of Hypocrisy! America Land of the Free? To get back to the previous post abut it being addictive. I need it for my illness because it really does a decent job of lessening my symptoms.
Years ago, when I used it I wanted it because I liked the way that it made me feel and wanted to keep doing it to feel good. I have been addicted for years. I want to give up but find it very hard. I smoked weed for yrs and quit when I got tired of it.
I never became addicted. Now sugar that is another issue——highly addictive at least to me. To me any addictive feelings one may get from Cannabis is there body simply telling them to not stop doing good to me. There is a lot of great Medical Cannabis news coming out but sadly it must all be imported because of the lame ass prohibition still on Cannabis.
Thanks, I have been doing a lot of research and I am tired of the lack of Freedom we have in America because of the Drug War. It affects everyone negatively! The US Governemnt owns the patent U. Patent to the medicine in Cannabis for a reason! Pat, I am happy you are able to get some relief. He gets relief and comfort from smoking cannabis and smoking cigarettes separately. I am 74 yrs of age and when I am not longer fit enough to look after him, they will put my grandson in a home and take away the cannabis because it has a detrimental affect on the brain he only has a few years left to live!
The care homes are all non-smoking now so he will not be able to smoke cigarettes either! How bloody cruel is this? Cannabis helps one deal with pain better than opioids. The side effects of analgesics are legion, they are addicting, and have to be taken on a scheduled basis, and if not taken as prescribed, the pain comes back with a vengeance.
If you stop the use of cannabis, there are no withdrawal symptoms. One who has lived through the experience. And considering all the health benefits, and lack of harmful effects..
Sadly in America more people are killed by legal prescription drugs taken illegally than all the illicit drugs put together! America is the Land of Great Hypocrisy where the legendary lies from our government over many years have been responsible for countless deaths.
Isreal leads the World with knowledge in this area… http: When campaigning for a pro-pot gubernatorial candidate, The niche I carved out for myself was to contact every PA County Medical Society.
The phones might as well be answered by the AMA. I got into it because I have a background in research some, neurological. I have Dementia and hit the books looking for an answer for myself. My first call to a County Medical Society, I got the director. How can I help? In the real world, these scientifically founded professionals keep abreast of the newest findings. That is, if THC really does help the patients with their dementia. There are no addictive properties or long term negative effects with Cannabis.
Quit painkiller opiates or Nicotine cold turkey. All this s fear mongering reefermadness bullshit is slowing down the advancement of canna based, life saving medicines. People are suffering and all articles like this and prohibition in general are doing, is continuing their needles suffering. Shatter or wax works better for me than smoking cannabis, with no smoke and no noticeable weed smell. Shatter is part of the overdose culture that stems from alcohol culture all over the world.
It helped her sleep and calmed her considerably, no hallucinations and also made her very hungry…She was currently taking Effexor which had some calming effects but the agitation was still present unlike with the cannabis…I am going to discuss the possibility with her Dr…. There is no current treatment. She is 80, so we are not concerned about potential long-term effects or addiction. At her age, the immediate challenges of managing this disease take priority. We fully support any regulations that aim to inhibit the misuse and exploitation of otherwise beneficial medical marijuana programs.
So a couple tokes a night for five years. So I can say that marijuana was a lot better than any pill they have out today. Thank you for sharing your first hand experience. Will inform my children… It is in their bloodline. Hope the good outweighs the bad. My father has dementia from a bad fall and he hit his head.
After that he has gotten worse and worse. He is like Dr. Okay one minute and angry the next minute. I am thinking about trying medical marijuana for him. His behavior in the late afternoon early evening is getting very hard to manage. He throws his walker at people and is very restless constantly getting up and down out of bed.
We all need help! Cannabis plant is best. A friend grew it, when I put a snapped off, dried, raw bud in my mouth and slept with it tucked in there snugged down between teeth and lip after many months of coughing myself awake, I finally and instantly stopped coughing and slept beautifully. Woke up rested, and feeling mellow and happy. Hemp oil too, has many health benefits and you can buy it in Tesco…. She has ALZ and her physician has tried every prescription available to treat her.
My Mom and our family were living a nightmare until this treatment! It slows her mind down enough for her to relax and stop the constant fidgeting.
She also sleeps much better. This disease is horrible for a patient but it is absolutely devastating for their loved ones. I am so thrilled to read this about your dad.
I applaud you for thinking outside of the box and doing this for your dad. Sounds like trusting your instincts is serving you well. Bravo for using your own initiative. Frankincense, cannabis hemp generally , colloidal silver are just a few of natures answers to many ailments. Thank you for sharing..
I want to make edibles. Music has been our drug of choice. Thanks for your story. I contacted HIV from my wife, my husband died 2 years ago from this disease, my life was gradually coming to an end living with this deadly disease daily, i did all i could to get cured from this disease but all was in vain, until i saw a post on health forum about a DR called Dr.
Mom, Grandmother, Great Grandmother etc, etc. My Neurologist has been very pleased with how I am doing and will I continue unless it stops being helpfull. How did you arrive at yours? I am sorry that this reply has taken so long, but I do not check this site very often.
If you find or have found a good clinic, they should be able to help. Here in Michigan the dispensaries cannot advise on dosage etc. If you are still have questions, let me know.
P vaugn, could you please contact me? I would be interested in hearing more about how this works for you as you move forward….
I have tried co for my father, my prob is I do not know if I am giving enough or not. Of course, my mother is very skeptical about the whole thing. I just need to know where to go from here. The doctor here in fla will not agree of benefits or least I have not found one that does.
Any information would be great. Thanks for any information. There was a great study just came out from Salk Institute that offers very plausible model.
I would like to try the oil. Just do a Google search for canna oil. There is tons of info out there. Its less addictive and has fewer health consequences than Caffiene! I hope they try at least cannabis compounds as alternatives to antipsychotics for those who need them. If you research this you will find that the synapse is effected by Alzheimer dementia etc. Synapse are basically connectors and also get affected by POT. I am not talking about getting stoned either. I hit or 2 occasionally.
Wait if they did a true study and it worked then billions could be lost. The drug companies cant have that. All medical and genetic disorders including NPC3 have been ruled out. His rapid progression is crazy! But, go figure we live in America and cannabis is illegal and no active research and go figure no help for children with Dementia. My impression is that EEG is used primarily to diagnose seizure activity. How is it applied to cases of dementia?
I recently signed a petition to release parents serving prison sentences that used Cannabis to treat an illness. The son developed Muscular Dystrophy after he was given the polio vaccine. Their children had to leave Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, friends….. The pro vax movement will stop WHEN mercury and aluminum are removed from them. My child is vaccinated but I should have researched the ingredients before I vaccinated him.
He was lucky that he did not have a problem but there are many that draw the short straw. Nobody in my family will EVER get another vaccine. These metals are linked to every neurological disorder in existence! I will try anything on my father.
He verbally disrespects my mother and she takes it because she loves him. His dementia only gets worse. She gave me permission to dose him to control his violent mood swings. Personally he is opposed to it; but the only other choice is to put him in a home. Anyone who spends any time with this disease knows nothing can make it worse and any glimmer of help is sent from God. I have used it legally for my own use since it became legal in the late 90s. It controls my cholesterol, blood pressure and replaces injections I took several times a week to treat migraines.
It has no addictive properties. I used it to stop smoking. Addiction is the last thing anyone should argue. Thanks for this information. Anybody else notice how easy it is to debunk these statements about addictiveness and long term effects? So a majority of people will find they are not addicted and will find a majority that have a similar experience. It may seem non problematic to be addicted to weed but it interferes with daily functioning eg diminished motivation, memory for days after smoking, and judgements which is problematic for education and employment.
This is also hard for people living with the addicted person. The risk of addiction may be worth it for Alzheimers particular for the elderly who have symptoms that harm the person and others. But to ignore the probability and costs of addiction would be medically unethical.
Years ago I sent the world class pot-heads think Hank Williams, Jr to offshore platforms in middle of Gulf of Mexico, and none ever had problem leaving pot behind. For example maybe try some THC vapor or a few bowls each day.
A couple bowls before every meal might help. An good edible, cookies or brownies, in the morning can have you high until the afternoon. Rediculas to try to judge effective use as a medicine at 1.
Need to be at leat 50mg 3 times a day to improve function and mental state. I have seen it… use a realistic dose of cannabis doctors if your going to do studies… mg to mg is a daily dose of cannabis not 1. Low doses about 2. She hits the floor running at am.. She barely sleeps and that means neither do i. Same with my Mom. She stayed a wake all night constantly tugging at her pajamas.
She would go several days without sleep. Her mind would not slow down so she could rest. She is a different person after four drops of Cannabis Oil: It gives her peace. This has kept her at home with us instead of in a nursing home.
What concerns me is the synthetic cannabinoids that are being promoted by these articles. The plant, the whole plant, and nothing but the plant. Restore this non-toxic, miraculous, nutritious and useful plant to we-the-people.
My best friend has smoked 49 years, and he computes fractional powers like 3. He memorized complete table of logarithms to 5 places to do math fast. I still can do Calculus, nuclear physics and programing after 40 years. He still recognizes everyone and normal life is ok, but, he forgets a lot of little stuff that used to be easy.
He went out to feed the animals one night, fed all but one, why? He has trouble remembering how to get the trailer hooked up to the truck. Any input would be helpful. Thanx, A worried boy. CBD also helps, but is only about half as effective. Josef Goebbels would be happy;. James Gavin Thomas was diagnosed with a cancer 16 July and have been in the medical drugs but the cancer grew larger.
I heard that cannabis oil and its healing efficiency and I decided to use cannabis oil treatment and cannabis oil was gotten from Dr. Michael Rogers Foundation via e-mail: After taking this oil treatment for 90 days, I was completely healed and my cancer disappeared.
I share this information for the patient with cancer and all I want to know that Rick Simpson oil cannabis can cure all types of cancer and also longer life span. It heals all other conditions applicable miracleousy. Michael Rogers if you are in need of oil. My Alzheimers family member had bouts of rage that I spoke to her geropsychiatrist about.
He reluctantly offered Risperidone as a solution because of something like 1 in users die. Fortunately we made some dosage adjustments to her medications which seem to have resolved it for now. Needless to say, medical marijuana seems like a safer and possibly more effective option than Risperidone. Hello my dear viewers,I am Erick Stuardo, i will say to the world to celebrate with me on this numerous testimony, i never believe i could ever get rid of this horrible disease until one fateful day,my story and appreciation goes to Dr.
Oduma emails which many individuals have testify so much about of his kind work, so i decided and contacted him quickly because the disease was almost at the last minute of taking my life, i have tried all remedies from several physicians from hospitals but none could help me apart from Dr. It should be pointed out that the biggest hurdle of this incredibly safe and productive herb is not any lied about side effects, not one person has died, the only real side effect is Euphoria , is that Doctors have been trained to sell Pills.
The national laws are in place to stop actual testing by keeping Cannabis as a schedule one drug.. We are sick and tired of being played the fool.
My mother is living proof that it does ease the symptoms of dementia. She has lived with MS for over 30 years and is currently in her 11th year with global dementia. She has tried every pill known to man and still she would scream day and night.
She was scared, paranoid and her anxiety was horrendous. There is nothing more the doctors could offer. Until we decided to try this oil. Now she only screams when the oil wears off. As soon as the oil kicks in she has a pretty decent day for being end stage.
I am not sure what city you live in but I live in Vancouver and my mom has had a card to purchase products for many years. We just use an Olive oil based product. But she also enjoys the candies and brownies. I would just go to your local dispensary and see what products they have.
In at just 33 years old, my dreams were abruptly eclipsed by the cold, hard reality of 1. To protect myself from infertility, i opted for radiation treatment instead of chemotherapy. All was well for a short while, but two years the cancer returned. Two weeks before my wedding, my doctors gave the bleak diagnosis: It appeared my fight was over. The warrior in me had been tested many times in her 33 years.
But when i was told my cancer was unbeatable, and it was time to set my affairs in order, the warrior inside me rose up to meet the impossible with a spirit of hopeful defiance. I will not die, because I was meant for more.
Rather than living in the shadow of a stage four cancer diagnoses,, so a friend of my introduce me to hemp oil and how to use it, for just few weeks am cancer free,. My brother is thinking of giving my mother this who has mixed dementia and alzhimers.
I was very dubious but after reading up on it am changing my views. You should only need low doses of mg THC daily. Just get some edibles if possible. How long has she had AD? Its most effective during early stage, and becomes less effective as disease progresses to later stages. Very good study, but pretty dense. As others will attest, it is a very painful ordeal with long lasting side effects coming from the radiation primarily. Radiation has been called, rightly so, the gift that keeps on giving.
Stan is two 2 months into his recovery and he now believes that he moved too quickly into his cancer treatment protocol. He lives in Oregon which gives him access to medical cannabis. He does not smoke the cannabis, rather he ingests concentrated cannabis oil.
God bless you Rick. I also believed marijuana to be harmless after 40 years of almost daily use. I experienced a mental addiction and experienced physical withdrawal symptoms when quitting.
I do not believe it caused any medical problems with the exception of sinus drainage each morning and a light cough when abusing. I experienced memory loss when under the influence only and became more emotional as time progressed. I do not believe occasional use is harmful in adults, not so with young people.
I believe we will see more medical uses when the medical community is allowed to study further. Simply stating my opinion. Sorry for your difficulties. Nothing is totally harmless, but 40 years of daily pot is usually less damaging than 40 years of booze. Moderation in all things, including moderation. The questions before us are whether cannabis is less harmful than Alzheimer, which is clearly no for most people, and can it help. A rare commodity indeed, I searched high and low for the oil to no avail until i met MR.
You can Email him Via: A new study suggests that AD is caused by Amyloid Beta, a misfolded protein that causes inflammation, causing production of proteins that summand the storm troopers of the immune system, which causes more even inflammation as it attacks the nerve cell, leading the cell to death spiral in a short time unless you can stop the cycle.
THC has neuroprotective effects that reduces inflammation, and also reduces the misfolding of Amyloid Beta. II The Early Stage of AD could slow early stage progression from 2 — 10 years , and just possibly stop disease in tracks. You only need low doses, of THC 1 — 2. There should be very little impairment at that level, and you may be unable to feel it. Print study below, try to read it, and bring to your doctor. Ask him to read the study, check the laws, and consider prescribing 1 mg daily for a month at to see how it works.
If he says no, ask him whether he thinks it will be harmful because you have trouble seeing the downside of it. Bless you, and hope it goes well. Here is study from Salk Institute, a top research center: What have these people been smoking? Marijuana is not addictive, and stay away from things coming from the pharmaceutical industry that is readily available in its natural form. I could believe that the pill form could be addictive because pharmaceutical companies like it that way.
You can go to a pot shop in Colorado and buy the exact strain you need, pay less and know they are not putting extra things in it to make you addicted. They are highly regulated, but huge pharmaceutical companies are not highly regulated.
This is how it works in America right now. If you have money you can lobby the government to leave you alone, while the small business gets all the negative attention. Ever try to come off a beta-blocker used for hypertension if being switched to a calcium channel blocker both are standard therapies for hypertension?
The anxiety feelings and tachycardia with heart pounding sensations are mind-boggling! Yet beta blockers are not so-called addictive drugs and are not on the DEA control roster.
The tachycardia and anxiety sensations are normal physiologic effects of the withdrawal. Probably Catapres could be used to mollify the distressing symptoms. They are not psychoactive, but rather physically addictive, sorta like anti-depressants. Also psychological withdrawal can manifest in psychosomatic symptoms, almost like a placebo effect as your neurotransmitters readjust.

I want to thank God for using Dr. Ogboloko to restore my life back with herbal medicine, my good friends who have been HIV positive for 2 years and all days of my cry to God as life was a mother of 2 cute kids were looking at me, I was taking my medication the hospital, I also did some prayers to God to do a miracle in my life, this is my friends a life story playing i am sharing with you in net today, a few months ago I was surfing the net when I found some good evidence about Dr Ogboloko has done for me and my family.
So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or any marital problem, kindly email Dr. The rest of that car journey we hardly spoke a word. But a couple of months later he came back to the village and over several drinks confessed he was bisexual and had also slept with prostitutes.
My life was reaally a sad story itself to trekll and i will never in life forget the Great man Dr, Gossy Wilsonodia which God have used to change my life and all that has happen to me , I understand that only few will believe in this story and i want any one out there living with this deadly diseasse to contact Dr Gossy Wilsonodia Email: Warm Regards Hollim Franky Email: My Mother is unhappy, belligerent at times and rarely sleeps.
This fight is about taking profit from physicians and pharmaceutical companies! Am from USA, am here to give my testimony about how i got my HIV disease and how I was flew from it quickly after having on trust on my spell doctor who cured me immediately. The primary concern for me is not addiction, and the strains used 20 years ago are not the strains used today…unless you grow your own, using heirloom seeds.
It being touted as a miracle cure all to the largest population of type 2 diabetes in history. If you replaced all the organic food with GMO food then the output yield would lead to enough food to end world hunger. The reason that the cannabis is so much stronger is from revolutions in growing technique.
But cannabis is non toxic unlike alcohol, and actually the most dangerous part of it the inhalation of combusted plant material, so using a stronger potency strain you are putting less pressure on the lungs. Sure there are always gunna be some people who over do it, but people can act responsibly, and deserve the right to have the choice. Sometimes we need to learn to be less science-phobic. Stop the war, war is the most dangerous addiction, let people decide for themselves if it helps or not.
Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did. The war on drugs began as a race war to disenfranchise minorities and continues to be so today with the lethal combination of poverty. End the bigoted War on Drugs and Immigrants with reasonable regulations that promote Healthcare and end Warfare. Hillary Clinton has promised to reschedule marijuana for medical use, give Hillary Clinton a Democratic Congress to move forward with the progressive cause.
Prohibition was over and you had all of these federal agents that needed to have a job. So they made cannabis into marijuana, to make it sound more foreign and then it was easy to make it into the evil weed. Just follow the money.
When I switched to the natural plant form it has made all the difference in the world. Now, none are an issue for me. Using vegetative resonance test, you can easily determine what exactly affected the nervous system. Is very important time to begin treatment since diagnosis. The sooner treatment begins, the more effectively. I have been suffering from this HIV disease for over 6 years and i have found know cure, on till this blessed day i was browsing through the internet and i saw a woman testifying about this great powerful spell caster Dr Tebe who helped her cured her HIV disease with a herbal medicine.
And also i contacted him Dr Tebe and i explain all my problem to him and he told me that i should not worry that he is going to help me prepare a herbal medicine for me and after that, he told me that he will send me a oil that i will use in curing my HIV disease and on the oil there are some rules that i will follow in using the oil, and i stood by it, and after using the oil i felt changing in me and i went for medical check up and the doctor told me that i am cured from the HIV disease and i was so very happy now that i am free from HIV disease and also the woman mentioned that Dr Tebe can also cure this deadly diseases called cancer, diabetes, syphilis, i am now saying that anyone you is suffering from any of this deadly disease should contact this powerful great spell caster at his email: If any of you think that addiction is something that is only caused by substances with physically addicting properties like alcohol and opiates, then you know nothing about addiction.
That includes things like gambling, running, eating, sex, and a lots more — including weed. This is NOT propaganda. People go to their graves trying to rely on willpower to quit addictions. I have members of my family who are weed addicts. I also have friends who are.
I am NOT talking about smoking some weed at a party or every once in a while with friends. Let us look at gambling, some one stops they are not gunna be puking and shitting their guts out for a week, freezing their asses off having cold and hot flashes.
I prayed for a total healing with NO operation, no chemo and no radiation. Rick Simpson, father of all natural hemp. Early this year i traveled to U. The doctor himself confirmed to us on Tuesday last week that my sister Khloe is fully OK. No sign of cancer in her bone or breast again…. Wow…Am so happy that my family and I have been thanking Rick for his good work of saving this world with his cannabis oil.
I was diagnose with colon cancer for 3 years, and ever since i have done a lot of Chemo and Radiation that have not helped me, but only damaged my immune system and render it weak and helpless. I came across the Phoenix Tears and i have read about the Rick Simpson Hemp oil a lot and saw that he could provide me with Hemp Oil here in the State, i contact him on: Am now here to testify that am no more a cancer patient I have experience a total transformation in my health sector with Rick Simpson Hemp oil service.
She has ALZ and she becomes very agitated and belligerent until we dose her:. She would also go several days without sleep until her physician made us give her Zanex which we hated because it sedated her so heavily. It was like her mind could not slow down. At first, we attempted to get our Mom to smoke a tiny bit since she used to smoke cigarettes but she forgot she smoked and refused to smoke the Cannabis so we threw it away!
It was a small amount. I am a believer in what goes around…. The Salk Institute reported in the June issue of Aging and Mechanisms of Disease that THC eliminated amyloid plaques and inflammation from lab grown human neurons. Nothing had worked as treatment for the last three years so the doctors have be focusing on keeping her comfortable until her time comes and the diseases have run their course. I was brought to the point of action just shy of three years ago when I went to visit her in the rehab facility she has been stuck in for the last 5 years, and will be in for the rest of her days.
Now a bit of a back story: My grandmother had a stroke and is essentially paralyzed on one side, had the hip on that side removed completely, and through it all has stay calm, kind, and sweet per her usual.
So when I heard she had been repeatedly rude to anyone I knew that something was wrong. She has not recognized me in years or anyone for that matter , and believes I am her daughter that passed away 30 years ago. When the time came for my next visit I decided to take action and to try something new. So I made my Nana some of her favorite cookies with an extra special ingredient…Cannabis butter.
Took them to her rehab facility and watched her eyes light up at the sight of the special treats anything would be better than hospital food. She ate two cookies and I waited. After about 30 minutes she showed faint signs of lucidity. Her lucid period was short lived, only about 30 minutes, but it was my Nana! Not the veritably vegetable I had been visiting over the years.
Since that day, when I go visit her, I take some kind of cannabis treat and watch the magic unfold in front of my eyes. So say what you will but cannabis works.
It may not cure the disease, but it gives me hope that there is a remedy in the not so distant future and maybe, just maybe, Marijuana can play a part in that. What will i say rather than thanking him for saving me. Why suffering in silence when there is remedy to your diseases.
When inflammation happens in the brain, oxygen is released as a result. The greater the inflammation, the greater the negative impact. Memory loss and other brain deterioration indirectly leads to increased oxygen in the brain. CBD is an antioxidant, which helps reduce the problems associated with oxygen stress. Brain functions negatively impacted by oxygen stress can be improved by using CBD. The potential of stimulating brain tissue was recently discovered as a potential benefit of CBD.
A study by Australian researchers Tim Karl and Carl Group found that CBD promotes the growth and development of brain cells, which were shown to reduce the decline of memory and other brain functions.
To effectively treat vascular dementia, a study by the US National Institute of Health NIH found that activating CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain helped recover better blood flow to the brain. Activating the CB2 receptors with CBD has increased brain cell activity and helped reduce brain cell damage commonly associated with vascular dementia.
Lewy body dementia LBD is a disease associated with abnormal deposits of a protein called alpha-synuclein in the brain. These deposits, called Lewy bodies, affect chemicals in the brain whose changes, in turn, can lead to problems with thinking, sleeping, movement, behavior, and mood.
Unlike most pain, anxiety or behavior management drugs, CBD does not block acetylcholine, the main chemical that LBD attacks. Research has shown that CBD can be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, reduce motor symptoms tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and maintain circadian sleep rhythms. Unlike most anti-psychotic drugs, CBD does not lead to an increased risk of death. Research has shown that CBD can be an effective anti-inflammatory agent, reduce anxiety, reduce motor symptoms tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia and maintain circadian sleep rhythms.
The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. A general lack of coordination and an unsteady gait often follow. The most commonly reported potential side effects of CBD usage were diarrhea and bloating, with some also reporting nausea.
Specifically, in dementia, some patients reported increased tremor with high dose CBD. As with any new treatment, patients and caregivers should monitor effects and outcomes closely. Cannabinoid receptors are found in most tissues and organs, but are particularly numerous in the brain.
When cannabis is consumed and its cannabinoids act on these receptors, they alter the release of neurochemicals in the brain, which changes how brain cells communicate with each other. This, in turn, affects various processes within our bodies, including appetite, pain, mood, memory and learning.
Some studies have shown that long-term cannabis use is associated with memory problems. A few clinical trials have identified that cannabis can help manage behavioural symptoms in people with dementia, including agitation and aggression, but only in some cases.
Other trials have studied the effects of cannabinoids including THC and the synthetic nabilone on behavioural symptoms, but more investigation is required. What does the Alzheimer Society think?

Medical marijuana and Alzheimer’s disease
The medical cannabis has potential neuromodulatory effect through binding with Studies included patients with AD, Vascular Dementia, or mixed dementia. Currently, the use of cannabis for medical purposes is legal if you are authorized by a health Research on cannabis and Alzheimer's disease. Numerous studies have demonstrated an involvement of the cannabinoid system Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common dementia, accounting for 50–60 % the hemp plant has been used in China and India for its medicinal effects.
