Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory, thinking skills, and the ability to carry out daily activities. It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that slowly worsens over time and is caused by brain cell death. It is not 100% known how this destruction process occurs.
One thought of how this occurs is a brain protein fragment called beta-amyloid accumulates in the brain leading to a disruption of communication between brain cells and eventually leads to brain cell death. This is the theory of the potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a devasting disease and continues to slowly progress over time until a person can no longer care for themselves.
Sadly, there is no known cure for this disease. However, new treatments with CBD oil has been found to possibly slow down the progression of the disease and decrease the process of cellular death.
Neurodegenerative diseases often involve inflammation of the neural tissue, leading to chronic neuronal deterioration. CBD oil works as an anti-inflammatory, therefore allowing the disease process to slow down.
Utilizing CBD oil could be a potential alternative medication to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s.
In addition, CBD oil acts as an antioxidant. The release of reactive oxygen and oxidative stress are both key components to Alzheimer’s disease and are linked to immune inflammation. Oxidative stress is caused by free radical production, which in turn generates inflammation in the body and damages cells.
An antioxidant helps to slow down the production of free radicals and the progression of cellular death. It would help aid in the progression of memory loss and other neurological symptoms which Alzheimer’s patients suffer from.
Alzheimer’s is a very difficult disease to live with for the patient and for family and friends. It can cause severe changes in personality which can be hard to cope with. A once loving, kind person can become mean, cold, and completely seem as if they are a different person.
CBD oil may be worth looking into for a person who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s to help improve their quality of life and an attempt to slow down the progression of this life changing disease.
CBD is the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory compound found in the cannabis plant. Painful symptoms of PMS have been linked to inflammation. Do you suffer from painful menstrual cramps, fatigue, irritability, breast tenderness, and mood swings? Then CBD may be the answer for you!
You can finally ditch the Midol and Ibuprofen once and for all. Over the counter medications used to treat PMS symptoms has the potential to cause other health issues.
CBD has been proven to be 60-100% more effective than the over the counter medications and is safer to take.
It will aid in relaxing the uterus and decrease uterine contractions and help alleviate mood swings as well. PMS symptoms can be debilitating for females. CBD can help increase the quality of lives for women.
Unlike the mind-altering effects of THC, you can take Hemp CBD in the morning and throughout the day when experiencing symptoms without feeling tired/groggy.
As with taking any medication, you can start low and slowly increase the dosage as needed until you feel relief.
In addition, you can use the CBD pain relief cream to rub on your pelvis to help relieve pain instantly when experiencing those excruciating cramps. You can apply as often as needed for optimal pain relief.
While pain killers can help alleviate migraine symptoms temporarily, you may be concerned about other side effects. Hemp CBD may be the solution for migraine/headache relief without any known side effects while still being able to function throughout the day.
Migraines/headaches may be related to a number of things, including stress, allergies, hormone changes, loud sounds, strong smells, physical exertion, genetics, food/food additives, changes in sleep pattern, medications, or changes in environmental factors.
A migraine attack can last up to 72 hours if untreated. The frequency of migraines varies from person to person. Migraines may be rare or can occur several times a month. When a migraine hits, a person may feel completely drained, dizzy, weak, sensitive to light/sound, moody, or confused. These symptoms can be extremely debilitating and really affect one’s quality of life.
Hemp CBD has been found to have numerous health benefits, and one of them is helping with chronic/acute pain, including headaches/migraines.
CBD is one of the many compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD acts by preventing the body from metabolizing anandamide (a compound associated with pain regulation). High doses of anandamide in the body reduces your feelings of pain. CBD may help those who suffer from migraines/headaches and be the solution for migraine/headache treatment.
It is recommended to take CBD daily for optimal pain relief. You may also take CBD daily to prevent future migraine attacks from occurring.
