Dr. Babak Baban, Ph.D. – CBD Researcher on Alzheimer’s Disease & COVID19 Cannabis Helps Dementia

Dr. Babak Baban is a highly accomplished researcher and has been studying CBD and cannabinoids at the Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University for years where he is Associate Dean for Research, a professor and immunologist. One of Dr. Baban’s studies on how CBD helps reduce cytokine storms in COVID-19 made headlines last year, and that’s how we first noticed his work.

More recently, I was blown away by a revolutionary study on mice that had severe familial Alzheimer’s Disease. Two weeks of high dose CBD seemed to reset how proteins are made in those Alzheimer’s impacted mouse brains!

Dr. Baban has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles, presented at dozens of national and international research conferences and has served on international study sections and editorial review boards. He is a member of the American Association for Cancer Research, American Heart Association, and the International Cannabinoid Research Society among others.
