Effects of Cannabis for People Living with Alzheimer’s Disease
Medicinal cannabis is well-known for its pain-relieving properties, but how does it relate to Alzheimer’s disease?
Now that the recreational use of cannabis is legal in Canada, we must ask ourselves some questions: What effects could this have for people living with Alzheimer’s disease or related forms of dementia? Can cannabis be used to slow the progression of the disease? What are the long-term effects of cannabis use?
In this webinar, we will answer many of these questions and also dispel a number of myths.
The following topics will be discussed during the presentation:
- the new federal and provincial law;
- what are the potential effects on people living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia;
- how can cannabis be used to slow the progression of the disease;
- what are the short and long-term effects of cannabis.
There will be a question period at the end of the presentation.
