My grandmother makes sure he smokes in the morning and during the daytime once
Do you have a grandparent or even a parent that suffers from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia? Medical marijuana can really help things out. THC is a chemical found in marijuana. What THC can do is slow the production of beta-amyloid proteins. This is the key contributor to the progression of Alzheimer’s. THC can not only reduce those beta levels, but it can stop the inflammatory response from the nerve cells. The nerve cells survive then and you retain your memory longer. Pretty cool and wonderful right? After reading about cannabis and dementia, I decided to be proactive and help my grandfather. I took him to a doctor that prescribed medical cannabis. I then filled out the forms online, paid the fee and got him a medical cannabis card. Then I dragged my grandfather to the medical marijuana dispensary near me. He wasn’t too pleased to rely on weed. Thankfully the budtenders know their stuff and the cannabis shops have so many different products. My grandfather is a cigar smoker. So the budtender got him some cannabis flower and a pipe that looks and feels just like you are holding a cigar. The budtender managed to make my 80 year old grandfather feel comfortable with smoking weed. My grandmother makes sure he smokes in the morning and during the daytime once. I have noticed a difference and my grandfather seems to really like cannabis. My grandmother has even talked about getting a CBD infused cooking oil and making them some meals. It is weird seeing older people so excited about weed.
