    Article on THC and also CBD regarding dementia and Altzheimer's.

    https://www.dementiacarecentral.com/aboutdementia/treating/cbd/

    Studies are showing cannabis to be more effective and fewer side effects vs
    current big-pharma dementia drugs-----similar to many other diseases.

    THC and CBD both were effective treatments.

    It certainly makes sense since the brain has a huge number of cannabinoid
    receptors for endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids (cannabis).

    The same positive results have also been shown in animal trials, with microdoses
    reversing memory loss.

    Is there a thread for all cannabis med studies OR more appropriate to do a thread for
    each condition??

    Very important area for research as statistics show 1 in 3 will have dementia to deal with :(

    "In recent studies, CBD has been shown to reduce or remove the impact of inflammation, oxygen buildup and brain cell decline." Shouldn't we expect some references?

    lipid metabolism involves LOX/ COX ( lipoxygenase , cyclooxygenase ) .. that is the oxygenation of lipids . oxygen cavitation of the cellular membrane that shakes up and moves enzymes / epoxides ETC... into the intracellular mechanisms along with the lipid compound . this is the form of homeostasis responsible for lipid metabolism/ lipid signalling
