Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Cannabis and Alzheimer's Disease

Understanding the Potential

As the owner of a cannabis dispensary in California, I have witnessed firsthand the evolving landscape of cannabis use, especially in the realm of therapeutic applications. One area that has been garnering significant interest is the potential use of cannabis in managing symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. Here, I share my insights and the emerging research on this topic.

The Backdrop of Alzheimer's

Alzheimer's disease, a debilitating neurological condition, has long challenged the medical community. It impairs memory and cognitive function, significantly affecting the quality of life of those afflicted and their families. Traditional treatments have been only partially effective, spurring interest in alternative therapies.

Cannabis: A Glimmer of Hope?

Recent studies have begun to explore the efficacy of cannabis in alleviating some symptoms of Alzheimer's. The primary focus has been on two components of the cannabis plant: THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol).

THC: More Than Just a High

THC, known for its psychoactive properties, has shown promise in reducing agitation and improving mood in Alzheimer's patients. Some research suggests that THC may also aid in reducing amyloid plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer's, although this area needs more exploration.

CBD: The Non-Psychoactive Pathway

CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and has been studied for its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. It may help in managing anxiety and improving sleep patterns in Alzheimer's patients.

Personal Observations

In my dispensary, I have interacted with customers who have sought cannabis for relatives with Alzheimer's. While it's crucial to acknowledge that this is not a cure, many have reported positive changes, particularly in mood and behavior management.

Navigating the Legal Landscape

Operating in California, we are fortunate to have a legal framework that allows us to provide cannabis for medical use. However, it's important for customers to understand the legal and regulatory aspects, especially when considering cannabis for health-related issues.

The Road Ahead

While promising, the use of cannabis in Alzheimer's treatment is still in its infancy. Ongoing research and clinical trials are crucial to fully understand its benefits and risks. As a dispensary owner, I stay updated on the latest studies and ensure that our staff is knowledgeable and ready to guide our customers appropriately.

A Word of Caution

It's essential to consult healthcare professionals before starting any new treatment, including cannabis, for Alzheimer's. Every individual is unique, and what works for one may not work for another.


As the cannabis industry continues to evolve, its role in healthcare, particularly in managing conditions like Alzheimer's, is becoming more prominent. At our dispensary, we are committed to providing safe access to cannabis, while also advocating for continued research and informed usage. The journey of understanding cannabis's full potential in Alzheimer's treatment is ongoing, and we are hopeful about the possibilities it presents.
