I have been reading quite a bit about using CDB oil or hemp oil to slow the progression of Alzheimer and was wondering if anyone has tried this oil? If so, did you see any results and what brand and mg did you use?


Thanks for sharing your info.

From my reading all CBD oils are not the same, there are several different cannabinoids not just one, and different plants have higher or lower concentrations of each.

My patient seemed to like the chocolate mint flavor.

The bottle came with both a dropper and a syringe adapter (for a TB-sized 1 ml. syringe) to push into the bottle, invert and pull down the desired amount.

There's a book on Amazon-The End of Alzheimer's: The First Program to Prevent and Reverse Cognitive Decline by Dale Bredesen. You may want to get. I'm going to order it just to see what they say.

Good luck.

Thanks for your answers. I have researched more since posting my question and plan on trying the CDB oil without THC. I will post with any results.

CBD oil has helped some juvenile epileptic patients drastically reduce the amount of seizures they have. Some have been able to decrease the amounts of other anti seizure drugs they take.

In California, CBD oil is considered a food supplement, therefore doesn't need a doctor's order. My patient's family bought it over the Internet from Colorado. It costs $200. a bottle.
This particular CBD oil had no THC in it.
I have been giving my epileptic patient CBD oil for many months in an attempt to control his seizures. Unfortunately, it did not give the desired results. There was a very small reduction in his seizures but not significant enough to keep using it.

I have not heard of its use for Alzheimer's. If THC were present, it may calm the restlessness Alzheimer's sufferers exhibit (similar to using marijuana) but I'm not sure what benefit there would be with the oil. I don't believe it's harmful so I would try it if I was diagnosed. It is a natural product.

I applied it to a sore shoulder and I broke out in a rash. Ingredients were CDB oil and olive oil, straight from a distiller. Glad I did not injest it as I have a lot of intestinal sensitivities as well! Since I had negative results, I'm not going to use it on mthr.

I like your question! Wouldn't it be nice if every time we heard some claims about treatments we could talk to people who tried them? That wouldn't exactly be scientific proof of anything, but it would certainly be interesting, wouldn't it?

I try to find peer-reviewed scientific papers on subjects like this. It doesn't look like there are many on CBD and dementia. In the few studies with humans, it looks to me like there were some improvements but also some patients who had to drop out due to side effects. An interesting summary is called "Cannabinoids and Dementia: A Review of Clinical and Preclinical Data," by The National Center for Biotechnology Information (part of NIH). It is technically way over my head but it is interesting to read what kinds of studies have been done, and that they date back to 2008.

I'll be interested in seeing what results our members post.
