Cannabis has been used for years to treat traumatic brain injuries and mental health conditions, but did you know that researchers are investigating cannabis as a treatment for Dementia and Alzheimer’s associated symptoms?

With life expectancy increasing it's more important than ever to investigate cannabinoids as a potential therapy and a tool to improve quality of life in later years.
