CBD’s Potential Benefits Against Cognitive Decline

By Belle Christner May 24, 2021

Cognitive decline is something that many of us will have to face at some point in our lives; whether we are actively caring for a loved one or at risk of experiencing some form of the issue ourselves. It is never too early to begin learning about how these conditions affect the body and what you can do.  

The World Health Organization describes Dementia asa syndrome – usually of a chronic or progressive nature – in which there is deterioration in cognitive function (i.e. the ability to process thought) beyond what might be expected from normal ageing.” With 50 million people around the world affected and nearly 10 million new cases every year, chances are, you may already know someone struggling with this degenerative condition. 




Dementia by definition is more of an “umbrella term” rather than a singular disease. Conditions under this term are caused by irregular changes in the brain that trigger a progressive cognitive decline as well as changes in behavior and emotions that start slowly and gradually become worse over time. Related disorders are the most common cause for disability and dependency among seniors. The image below shows data from The Alzheimer's Association breaking down percentages of cases under the “umbrella” of  Dementia related diseases, with Alzheimer’s Disease being the most common.




 




Because CBD serves as a neuroprotectant, studies done in mice support evidence that CBD can be used therapeutically to reduce the brain’s neuroinflammatory response to Alzheimer’s and also promote neurogenesis. CBD treatment in some mice with the disease “reversed social and object recognition memory deficits” as well as “prevented the development of social recognition memory deficits.” However, more recently, a 2016 study out of California performed on neurons grown in a lab, found that cannabinoids may actually be effective in removing the plaque-like beta amyloid proteins that begin growing in nerve cells before symptoms of Alzheimer’s occur. While the contribution the formation of the “plaque” plays in the disease is still vague, research shows the amyloid beta is “associated with cellular inflammation and higher rates of neuron death.” Because CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, it’s interaction with the body's endocannabinoid receptors may be able to protect the cells from dying. 



Similar to CBD, another non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBG is also thought to have some beneficial effects against cognitive decline. When CBG binds to our body’s cannabinoid receptors it reinforces the brain cells that regulate appetite, sleep patterns and motivation. Another study performed on mice with Huntington’s Disease (a different form of Dementia) shows that CBG may also serve as a neuroprotectant in the brain. 



Discover CBD offers many methods of consumption, but the most popular among senior customers is Active CBD Oil Capsules, as it is one of the easiest ways to take CBD. Each gel capsule is a consistent 25mg dose and contains no THC. Customers who already take daily medication or vitamins find the capsules fit into their routine with ease.

 


CBG is also available in a versatile isolate powder used for many different consumption methods. Discover CBD also provides an easy to use CBG tincture for effective sublingual intake.

Consult with your physician before adding CBD or CBG to your routine or medications.
