Medical Marijuana Pill May Not Be Effective in Treating Behavioral Symptoms of Dementia

Are you using medical marijuana pills to treat behavioral symptoms of Dementia? You may want to consider another therapy.

A study from the Netherlands suggests medical marijuana pills that contain THC are not effective in treating dementia. Still, researchers say using the pill won't harm you; the drug is still safe and well-tolerated. These results were published in the American Academy of Neurology and are significant because this study was the largest carried out on marijuana pills and dementia, and concrete evidence regarding marijuana as a medication is still relatively scarce. Scientists call for future studies, saying discovering a drug to treat behavioral symptoms of dementia is much needed, and a higher dose of THC pills could be well-tolerated and potentially beneficial as a treatment option.
