this might be week 3 of my experiment to see if using the cbd oil with thc in it might knock out the ALZ factor.

Using oil made from cannabis organic grown buds I now have no reaction to the thc.

Increased my dosage to 2 times a day and 1 dose of the cbd oil w/o thc. Now taking larger doses, about size of 2 grains of rice.


I am now walking 1+ mile a day and added a 20 second run to it. I was virtually bedridden for years now, by weakness, inability to breathe, and inertia.

My body has worn down, bone loss and muscle loss. To be able to walk in a normal gait (not the trudge I had) is a miracle to me, to breathe without coughing, and now adding the micro bursts of running has helped me lose 2.5 lbs this past week and I feel some strength coming back into my legs.

I am very sore from the activity but read about what happens when you sit all day, and what happens when you lay in bed all day. Your body begins to break down.

so summer ended and fall has begun and I want to get strong enough to rejoin local exercise class and then swim starting in November ( have nearby pool to use)

My sleep is disrupted because of the muscle and bone pain from exercise but I am managing it again with a couple puffs of train Wreck, an Indica strain.

I have been looking people in the eyes, as if I did not for a few years.

I had been emotionally tormented by family actions against me and lived in fear of what they would take from me next. Often felt out of body from ptsd, and suffered from depression.

After several months on oil I was able to make a chart of how my family's actions against me cost me my retirement and set my husband and I up for him having nothing when I die. I sent this to my mother with no malice, just so she can understand why I have to stop interacting with he and to tell her anymore or further papers she wants me to sign will go to my lawyer. I feel released from that anger.

as for my cognitive abilities, there are times in the day I am so sharp! Figuring out camera adjustments, recalling names of historical things, dressing with more care.

and then there are times, mostly 30 minute periods, where I can go "lost"about what I am doing. My husband has been super good at covering for me at those times.

We are now laughing every day! We negotiate so much better. The less I have to do what is difficult the more energy I have.

Cleared off kitchen table and plan to begin some art projects this week.

Taking the thc oil now is no different than coconut oil, no drugged stoned sensation at all. I do think the 2 oils function differently and will take regular oil if I feel stuck, frozen in place and it works within minutes. The thc oil feels like it is working on something.

I am now past 65 and my skin brown spots are almost gone. Those plaques from Aricept were an allergic reaction. Thank god I am off drugs!

today's conclusion:

 It may not cure me but it is going to make this a happy end of life.

Function improved on every level.

Now wanting to bathe and shower, care about my appearance.

People are telling me I look "really good, different!"

I can walk normally, my gait is normal.

My appetite is down and hope to keep losing 2 pounds a week for awhile.

Mood is stable and cheerful.

Still forget where I placed things, but usually remember within a few hours.

Forecast: optimistic, feeling creatively inspired, feel emotionally stable, feel back in my body more than ever before in my life.

If I skip a dose there is still a difference that I want to avoid. To think a year ago I was spending an hour putting on underpants. wow.

Thanks for the update. It is wonderful to hear about your progress and improvement.  Back when I was trying to find something to help my mom's agitation I first read about your use of the cbd oil. Since that time I always read your posts and find them really informative. I do not have dementia but after caring for my mom I am interested in doing everything I can to prevent it. I am taking a cbd tincture daily and do feel a mental clarity as a result of it. I really do think you are on to something here and am rooting for you all the way.

That makes two of us (and likely many more) being happy for the progress that you have made.  To see real improvement is wonderful.

Dawn - wonderful to see another person benefitting from the oil, I wish you the best!

I have been having a rough couple days (separate post) and found anxiety going into nuke phase. Eventually I had to take an Ativan and smoke puffs during day plus the oil, breathing calm (8seconds breath in, 7seconds hold, 4seconds blow out, repeat 3 times...

Lane - your support really touches my heart.

well, I came here this morning to write about another topic and instead read replies here and got distracted.

OH, it was that when I was first diagnosed, the words were pronounced "You do have Alzheimer's" and I went frantic as I did not have anyone to help me like I helped my Dad.

All my lifelong friends were dying or terminal. I was thinking how to end my life and end the misery to come. Then I found the boards, and found a short blog about a woman who ran Skunk Pharm Research and how she rescued her mother who had Alzheimer's.

Her story changed everything for me.

She use marijuana to get her mother off drugs and regain her health and what a beautiful story it is.

This experiment in gratefulness to her for figuring out what to do and how to do it and remain happy while helping a person with ALZ live a full and pleasant life.

love all your support and kindness, and love to hear how it works for others!

I attribute most of your recent sucess to your own involvement in life.  Take all the credit you deserve plus two cookies.  THC is the active ingredient studied, studies have already concluded.  I think people have overlooked the dosage.  I saw 2.5mg recommended.  Here in Washington, the ever stoned state the lowest dose of edible i found was 10mg.  One mint.  I think it is the alterior motive thing ans social cause are driving both sides of the question.  I don't need to tell you what to do, but I do want to tell you I did appreciate the positive effect the post had on me.
