Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s dementia is an irreversible & progressive disease that destroys memory and thinking skills, robbing the ability to carry out tasks.  One in two people over the age of 85 may develop AD.  Over 6M in USA & 55M globally have AD.

Disruptive tangles of proteins develop in the brain forming plaques, cutting off communication and causing neurodegeneration.  Low levels of acetylcholine are common and there may be a genetic risk with APOE4 presence being a risk factor.  About 25% of people carry one copy of APOE4, and 2 to 3% carry two copies.  APOE4 is the strongest risk factor gene for Alzheimer’s disease, although inheriting APOE4 does not mean a person will definitely develop the disease.

How Cannabis Can Help

CB1 activation by THC inhibits glutamate excitotoxicity, may reduce Tao protein buildup in plaques, and reduces acetylcholinesterase. CBD affects glutamate, serotonin, dopamine, TRPV1, opiate, and dozens of receptors affecting pain, mood, energy, sleep, and appetite. CBD improves blood flow, inflammation and THC may slow learning deficits, promote alertness, and a positive shift in perception and mood.
