Alzheimer’s Disease/Dementia and Cannabinoids—Is It an Option? Joseph Rosado, M.D., MBA, Medical Director, Coastal Wellness Centers, Ormond Beach, FL & President, International Medical Consultants, DeLand, FL will discuss medical cannabis in reference to this topic.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. Presently, it now ranks as the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. There are two types of onset of AD with various causes, classifications and stages. Medical cannabis is one of the natural treatments that people, especially baby boomers, are turning to for symptom relief and disease treatment; it [medical cannabis] has proven to be beneficial for many chronic, degenerative conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease.
In this presentation, Dr. Joseph Rosado will discuss, what Alzheimer’s disease is, how many people are affected by and die as a result of it, what causes it, how it’s treated “conventionally”, what is in the scientific literature regarding Alzheimer’s disease and medical cannabis and how to manage/treat AD patients with medical cannabis.
