Taking CBD Daily May Protect Our Brains for Tomorrow

One of the aspects that I enjoy most about being CEO of Octavia Wellness is being able to use our platform to inspire and educate multiple generations to make informed choices about their own health, and the healthcare of their loved ones.  

Octavia Herbal represents an ongoing collaboration between scientists, formulators, practitioners, and caregivers who are dedicated to providing trusted CBD treatments, available nationwide.  

Many people are familiar with studies showing how CBD may help with insomnia, improve mood and reduce pain.  But as a middle aged person with a family history of Alzheimer’s, I am particularly fascinated to learn about the possible preventative benefits of using CBD.  

Research indicates that by taking microdose levels of CBD each day, we may be reducing the likelihood of developing certain neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and ALS.  

It’s empowering to be proactive about our brain health.  That’s why our team has developed simple reminders and easy-to-use products designed to help us lead healthier and more comfortable lives, well into our golden years!

Discovering the Research of Dr. Gary Wenk, PhD:

Early in my mom’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s in 2014, I was lucky enough to fall upon a video featuring Dr. Gary Wenk, PhD at Patients Out of Time, delivering a lecture at Patients Out of Time to a group of physicians and clinicians about his research findings conducted at Ohio State University where he studied the effects of cannabis on the human brain. I can still recall the first time that I heard his message that “if we could get our parents to use cannabis everyday in low doses, we could change their lives.”

“The earlier you start treatment the greater chance for complete reversal. Alzheimer’s is a sneaky, seductive reaper, and we go for years ignoring our minor slip ups and “senior moments” before realizing only too late that yes, it really is Alzheimer’s.” – Dale E. Bredesen, MD.

Be Well,
