Alzhiemers is a cruel and terrible disease. It’s brutal for the guy going through it plus it’s hard for those caring for the appreciated one who has it. There is just nothing that will totally disrupt that, at least currently. However in our case, I’m not looking for a cure as much as I’m looking for some comfort for our Mom. That’s where medical marijuana has made such a difference. Mom has been being robbed more and more of his lucidity with every month that goes by. Yet, there are certain moments where he is there plus right with me. I can look into his eyes plus see the recognition plus the calm. It’s much better than the fear I see in his eyes when he is dealing with so much frustration right now. That is heart splitting to watch. About numerous weeks ago, I started getting some cannabis education by going to cannabis events at the legal weed shop near us. I l received that medical cannabis can aid those dealing with dementia. Calming our Mom plus even allowing for more and longer moments of lucidity. I l received a lot of the cannabis information plus I started to work through the medical marijuana regulations to get Mom acces. It’s more or less very interesting that he is getting treated with medical cannabis. I’ve explained what it is to him. Mostly, he just thinks it’s another medicine. But one afternoon, he said he never thought he’d live to be a hippie. He had that great big grin on his face that I’ve known all our life. Medical weed is now helping my Mom deal with this horrible disease. And I’m so grateful for the few extra moments that both of us had.
