  • I have not, but my old business partner used CBD hemp for her mom and got her out of the nursing home and back into living at home. Helped her short term memory and ability to enjoy every day life more.

      In the 3 months since you wrote this post, how has your former partner's mother been? Has she exhibited any side effects from the CBD oil? My mom is experiencing some memory trouble and I'm very interested in hearing about others who have tried this--good or bad.

      Mary McGeorge  no the CBD continues to be an asset to Alzheimer’s dementia and anxiety. This is because we already produce a molecule very similar to CBD in our body we will see in the next five years many many more studies that will show CBD is a vitamin  that is very necessary and that most of us are deficient in CBD.

      CBD, if grown and manufactured organically & without chemicals can be a huge benefit to many different dementia patients. There are literally no side effects if you have a clean product and start slow and are coached through it, it can be a godsend.

      be aware of Amazon products they are Not tested and Ken have heavy metals, pesticides and residual solvents which is something you do not want in your medicine or supplement. This is a  highly unregulated market place.

  • Did the CDB oil help with appetite?  All of a sudden my father lost his appetite.

  • No, unfortunately that is the THC side of the plant. I don’t think cbd should decrease appetite tho

  • In Israel medical marijuana is provided for nursing home patients. It helps with appetite, anxiety, depression and CBD helps with aches and pain. Pain improvement is only seen with continued use and best CBD is from cannabis, hemp is commercial grade of plant, used for rope & things & CBD quality is less. Look at what it is extracted with: grain alcohol or something toxic. You can't OD on CBD, but of course THC can get too intense at higher doses and cause paranoia, etc.. Edibles are particularly good for pain as they affect the whole body. BEWARE MILLIGRAMS of THC!! Edibles are not always accurately marked, so start with no more than 5mg and wait 2hrs before deciding if you want to add more. It may kick in sooner depending on your metabolism, but don't assume that! I use 5mg edibles for Fibromyalgia pain & PTSD. I had a nephew who smoked for appetite and used high dose CBD for multiple myeloma cancer. He gained weight and extended his life about 6mo's because of it.

      Angela Adamcik  if you were looking for a supplement that is well diagnosed and stays in the body consistently then I would suggest a tincture as those can be more affective and don’t depend upon digestion. Most edibles found in the dispensary have THC in it not recommended for dementia patients! A tincture is the safest and best way to get the CBD into the bloodstream safely,  consistently and with consistent affects. Edibles usually contain lots of sugar, corn sera up and chemicals I am not a fan of edibles as they take different times for people to digest however sometimes that is the only way to go for people who don’t want to put a tincture under their tongue. You can Message me for more info.

  • Can CBD oil be used in an elderly man (90 yrs old) for short term memory loss? My dad hasn't been diagnosed with dementia - just "old age." However, he sometimes wakes up after dozing off and calls out for, or asks where his wife is... my mom passed away 5 years ago.
