CBD May Help Veterans Enhance Memory

by Sadie J. Blogger

Research shows that Veterans have a higher risk of memory loss due to traumatic experiences. There are several reasons why people begin to lose their memory, including Alzheimer’s, dementia, trauma, and even stress. Dealing with memory loss can be immensely challenging not just for the person who is suffering from it, but also for their friends and family.

However, due to the very fact that memory is formed over long periods, this is a process which cannot happen very quickly.

Cannabis and Memory

The idea of CBD having the potential to help people with memory problems might seem to be a strange one to many people since cannabis use has been associated with memory loss for years. The cannabis plant naturally contains over 100 compounds, two of which are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC. These are also known as phytocannabinoids, which means that if they are consumed by humans, they can act in a similar way to the endocannabinoids which are made naturally in the body.

This all takes place in the endocannabinoid system, which is a system in the body which is responsible for the regulation of several factors, including the central nervous system, inflammation, and mood.

The medical profession has a lot of hope pinned on cannabis research, as it is possible that learning more about the endocannabinoid system, and how the different compounds in the cannabis plant affect it, could lead to major advances in the treatment of everything from acne to Alzheimer’s, or migraine to cancer.

Different types of memory loss and CBD

There can be multiple reasons why people suffer from memory loss, so it is important to look at each reason separately with regards to how CBD could affect it.

Degenerative Diseases and CBD

Some people suffer from memory loss as a result of a degenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. There is mounting medical evidence that suggests that CBD can be helpful for the reduction of neuroinflammation, oxygen build-up, and protect from brain cell decline as well as having other positive effects on the brain.
