slide 1: Cannabidiol For Neurodegenerative Disorders c b d i n s i d e r s . c o m/cannabidiol-for-neurodegenerative-disorders/ Neurodegeneration refers to conditions that affect human brain neurons. Neurons are the blocks that build the nervous system and they don’t have the ability to reproduce meaning the body can’t replace neurons naturally once they are impaired. In the United States alone nearly 5.4 million people suffer from Alzheimer’s disease with around 500000 suffering from Parkinson’s. As the American population ages these numbers are only going to increase. A large percentage of people have direct experience with neurodegenerative disorders either through their own diagnosis or through the diagnosis of loved ones. Neurodegenerative disorders are considerably more challenging because they not only affect the individual but also have a huge financial emotional and practical effect on families. As the rates these diseases are likely to continue to increase scientists and researchers are racing to find effective treatment options. Many of the options available today are typically costly and limited in scope. Many of the most common drugs associated with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s also come with significant side effects and may cause vomiting nausea digestive issues and decreased appetite just to name a few. 1/5 slide 2: As scientific research continues to expand into the potential of medical marijuana and its various beneficial components significant excitement is beginning to build surrounding the treatment possibilities for neurodegenerative disorders with cannabidiol oil CBD oil. While current results are only preliminary studies into CBD oil treatment for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s is overwhelmingly positive. CBD treatment not only targets some of the most debilitating symptoms of these diseases but with little to no side effect risk. For many people managing their symptoms or for family members assisting their loved ones CBD is offering hope for a variety of increasingly severe neurological diseases. How does CBD Treat Neurodegenerative Disorders THC and cannabidiol have been found to have anti-inflammatory characteristics specifically in cases of chronic brain inflammation. They have also been found to target oxidative-stress and cellular dysfunction and have an extremely powerful effect on the overall health of the endocannabinoid system and neurotrophic or brain cell support. According to at least one recent study there seems to be preliminary evidence suggesting that CBD specifically slows down brain aging a primary suspect in many neurodegenerative diseases. As CBD becomes more widely accepted and the legal barriers are removed scientific study is becoming more viable. Research into CBD treatment for neurodegenerative disorders is in its relatively early stages but the vast majority of it is pointing to positive results. As more large-scale clinical trials are completed the results should continue to demonstrate effective and powerful treatment of neurodegenerative diseases with CBD. Alzheimer’s Disease Current pharmaceuticals have proven to be inadequate for treatment of moderate to severe cases of Alzheimer’s and therefore cannabis extracts are being pursued for their ability to relieve and reduce some of the more difficult symptoms such as agitation and aggression. Other symptoms which were also alleviated were those of delusions and apathy according to The Journal of Alzheimer’s disease. There is a strong suggestion in the available research that the non-psychoactive cannabinoids in cannabis such as CBD offer neurological protection through anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory capabilities. In clinical trials of cannabis oil patients showed demonstrative results in the treatment of their behavioral and psychoactive dementia. Parkinson’s Disease Due to the degenerative nature of Parkinson’s disease and the often rapid decline in quality of life there is much interest in the ability of CBD to slow down the decline and degeneration. 2/5 slide 3: Studies have shown that Parkinson’s patients who suffer from sleep behavior disorder which causes both nightmares and disrupted sleep can effectively treat it with CBD oil. Once the CBD treatments stopped symptoms returned. In small preliminary trials patients who inhaled cannabis containing both THC and CBD reported drastically reduced tremors rigidness and slowness of movement. They also reported sleeping better and a reduction in overall pain. Huntington’s Disease Unlike both Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases the available research on CBD as an effective treatment option for Huntington’s Disease is in even earlier stages. With that in mind the initial evidence is very compelling. Huntington’s Disease causes a slow neurological decline with symptoms such as tremors reduction in mobility and cognitive function. Cannabidiol as mentioned earlier is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and directly affects the function of the endocannabinoid system. The smooth functioning of this system begins to rapidly deteriorate after the onset of Huntington’s disease and it is thought that CBD could offer an effective neurological protection.
