Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease found in people who experience frequent brain trauma. This isn’t just full-blown concussion; this also includes asymptomatic subconcussive blows that do not offer any symptoms after the trauma.
Repeated brain trauma can cause progressive degeneration in brain tissue, as well as a buildup of a protein called tau. These changes can begin within a few months, but can also take decades from the last trauma to begin to develop.
Common symptoms of ETC include: -Confusion -Alterations in judgment -Boost control issues -Aggression -Depression -Thoughts of suicide -Parkinson’s -Progressive Dementia Currently, there are no treatment options for ETC. Right now, it’s about preventative measures. But as studies continue to show how good CBD is for the brain and the injuries that do occur, CBD oil could be the future of CTE treatments due to its neurogenesis properties.
Research has shown that once cannabinoid receptors are activated through binding with endocannabinoids, they provide protection to the brain. Because CBD elevates these endocannabinoids, it can help make protection more effective. CBD oil also activates the 5-hydroxytryptamine 1A receptor which has been shown to have neuroprotective effects when activated. Some studies have even suggested that CBD may reduce brain cell death after administration. Researchers believe that people who have depression have brain damage to the medial prefrontal cortex and hippocampus.
Studies have shown that CBD oil can elevate chemicals that are missing in people with depression, as well as elevating a chemical called BDNF that helps with brain growth and repair. The best part is that scientists believe that CBD could be a fast-acting antidepressant, which is an exciting discovery for those looking for something that works quickly.
The hippocampus also plays a role in impulse control. With damage to this area, someone may find it more difficult to control themselves. Considering that cannabidiol can help with the damage done to the hippocampus, it can also help with impulse control.
How to take CBD oil for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy?
Our suggestion is to start using our CBD oil Canalanza with 3-5 drops. Starting in the morning, before breakfast and under the tongue. Leave the oil to dissolve with saliva for at least one minute. Put 2-3 drops before having lunch and another 3-5 at night half an hour before going to sleep. For better results increase with 1-2 drops in the morning dosage and 2-3 at night. Our CBD oil has a natural flavor due to the Extra Virgin Olive Oil used as the base.
