If we walk into a nursing home, hospital, or other health facility, chances are pretty high that we will see at least a few people struggling with a neurodegenerative disorders. In America, it is one of the main causes of death. These disorders are often distinguished by a loss of neurons in specific regions of the nervous system. It is believed that this nerve cell loss is the primary reason for cognitive and motor function dysfunction for those with a neurodegenerative disorder.
According to this study, inflammation is one of the connecting factors among the list of neurodegenerative disorders/diseases. New therapeutic approaches are being sought after because currently there are very few therapies for the wide range of disorders. The most desirable solution is the combination of neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory agents because isolated treatments cannot be effective.
The study finds that, “cannabidiol (CBD), which lacks any unwanted psychotropic effect, may represent a very promising agent with the highest prospect for therapeutic use”. This make sense because of the anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties that CBD has.
In a second study, cannabidiol was studied specifically for treatment in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It states that because of CBD: “has been found in vitro to be neuroprotective, to prevent hippocampal and cortical neurodegeneration, to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, reduce tau hyperphosphorylation and to regulate microglial cell migration”, it is a prime candidate for new treatment strategies.
Additionally, “CBD was shown to protect against Aβ mediated neurotoxicity and microglial-activated neurotoxicity to reduce Aβ production by inducing APP ubiquination and to improve cell viability.” The study concluded that because of these properties, it is suggested that CBD is a perfect candidate to treat the array of pathologies found in AD.
Because our products are full spectrum, and contain a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes it is believed to have a more powerful response than using just one of the cannabinoids at a time. Each person has an endocannabinoid system, which is fueled by these cannabinoids and terpenes. The combination of these compounds help to provide what is known as the entourage effect. Here at That’s Natural we strive to provide the most pure, potent, and trusted products possible – something we have been doing for over 10 years. We even provide 100% traceability of where our hemp comes from. For more questions regarding our CBD products, please visit our Questions and Answers page.
