Dementia
Dementia refers to a significant reduction in cognitive functioning without a change in consciousness, which characterizes a group of diseases that commonly occur during old age, the most common being Alzheimer's. These diseases are characterized by mental and cognitive decline, which leads to significant social and occupational impairments.
 
Alzheimer's is a disease of the central nervous system characterized by slow and continuous degeneration of nerve cells in the brain until death.
 
Today these diseases are not included in the list of indications of the Ministry of Health for the treatment of medical cannabisAt the same time, we have dementia patients who respond to treatment and use it. You can apply under various sections or an exception clause. In addition, geriatric patients may apply for a doctor's recommendation without the need for a neurologist's approval.
