Use of CBD-THC oil to manage cognitive, emotional, and behavioral problems of nursing home patients with Alzheimer, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s

Jackie Darling, Michael Hart, Zack Cernovsky

Objective: The non-euphoric cannabidiol (CBD) has been found to have neuro protective impact. We report clinical findings on 3 patients. Method: Three nursing home patients with severe disabilities due to advanced chronic neurodegenerative diseases were administered 1ml cannabidiol (CBD)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) oil twice daily: the CBD and THC were in a 1:1 proportion. Results: The following behavioral changes were noted after two or more weeks. An elderly lady with Alzheimer became less confused, disoriented, disruptive, aggressive, and more alert, cooperative, and socially pleasant. Her sleep has improved. A verbally combative lady in her early 50s, bedridden due to advanced multiple sclerosis, was screaming in her depressed anger, was usually rude to nursing staff, but at some other times unresponsive and apathetic, has become more alert, talkative, and verbally more considerate and appreciative. An elderly gentleman with stage 4 Parkinson’s became less agitated, fell less often, expressed himself verbally in a more coherent manner, was more cooperative, his cognitive functioning has improved, his gait has somewhat improved, and his tremor/shaking became slightly less intense. Conclusion: More clinical research on CBD oils in patients with neurodegenerative disease is urgently needed to improve the quality of life and daily functioning of these patients.
