Cannabis For Aging, Banner of Man, Woman, and a Dog

When it comes to cannabinoids, age matters. Cannabis is an incredibly good potential anti-aging medicine, and there are several good reasons for this. However, before we begin it’s important to note that while cannabis is used by people for their health problems, determining whether cannabis is appropriate to treat your symptoms is best done through a discussion with a healthcare practitioner.

THC Keeps Dementia at Bay

Regular, low doses of THC boosted memory and learning in older mice, and the endocannabinoid system seems to play an important role in adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus and the lateral ventricles. So, whilst cannabinoids may not be ideal for non-medical use for children and teens, a small amount of cannabis a day when a person gets older helps retain memory and aid learning.

Bone Loss is Diminished with Cannabis

As our bodies get older, our bones get weaker. Also, the wear-and-tear of general living will cause some bone degradation and, whilst exercising will prevent osteoporosis, an imbalance between nutrition and exercise will lead to bone stress injuries and early osteoporosis. Interestingly, cannabinoids help reverse bone loss.

Ditch the Pill Bottle

As we get older, we become more susceptible to any number of illnesses, injuries and diseases. As various health conditions pile up on top of each other, we get prescribed more and more pills. Moreover, these pills can have nasty side-effects and/or interact negatively with other pills, meaning more pills are prescribed.

Conclusion

Researchers and doctors are on the edge of developing some very interesting cannabis medications and, as data collection methods improve and bigger datasets start coming through, we’ll be able to make headway in developing some “preventative” medicines thanks to the use of cannabinoids.
