World Alzheimer's Day

Today is World Alzheimer's Day, a day that organizations around the world build awareness for Alzheimer's and dementia. Almost 50 million people suffer from dementia worldwide (according to The World Health Organization) with roughly 10 million new cases each year.

Studies have shown in recent years that cannabis holds a lot of promise in treating the disease. Scientists at California's Silk Institute published results in 2016 "indicating that the active chemicals or cannabinoids found in cannabis, such as euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), can effectively relieve the amyloid protein buildup and cell damage related to dementia using some of the brain's own protective measures."

Laws and regulations have made it difficult to fully explore the benefits that cannabis can have on this disease, however with changing regulations across North America, hopefully more studies will be conducted in the near future to fully explore this option.
