What are the benefits of treating older people with Cannabis?

For decades cannabis has been considered a dangerous and illegal drug. In recent years it is still illegal but is no longer considered dangerous.

The truth is that there is more and more evidence that the cannabis plant is a medicinal and effective plant against a variety of problems such as neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Tourette’s, Huntington’s, migraine, autism and Alzheimer’s. Inflammatory diseases such as Crohn’s and inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, fibromyalgia, endocrine diseases such as diabetes, cancer, post-trauma, glaucoma, depression, neuropathic pain and more. Cannabis is a very powerful antioxidant and is considered less dangerous and has relatively mild side effects including from the medications that older people take. No person is known to have died as a result of cannabis use. In contrast, many people die as a result of using regular medications as a result of high doses or due to illicit drug combinations. If you are in Canada, you can get cannabis through Cannabis Mail Order – THC Delivery Canada’s 1 and only. Excellent service.

Cannabis is not as addictive as many think. The addiction, if it does exist, is not physiological but psychological because there is no withdrawal syndrome. People who are considered heavy users of cannabis sometimes find it difficult to stop consuming because they have a psychological addiction to feeling good. Other medications such as painkillers, antidepressants and sleeping pills are addictive and it is very difficult to stop taking them.

Many adults are afraid to start consuming medical cannabis because they are afraid of being stoned. They think, by mistake, that every strain of cannabis makes you feel hi, and that’s not the case. THC is the only psychoactive ingredient among the hundreds of compounds in the plant. There are many strains that contain little THC and are rich in other cannabinoids like CBD for example. These strains may relieve pain, treat inflammation, relax muscles, prevent nausea, and improve concentration. Cannabis improves bone density in old age by encouraging bone-building cells and inhibiting bone-destroying cells and is therefore found to be effective in treating and preventing osteoporosis.

It is possible to combine several strains and take before bed a strain that will help good and quality sleep and waking up after a refreshing sleep is no substitute.

Consumption methods:

One of the reasons most adults are afraid to start using cannabis is that they are not interested in smoking. They do not know that there are other ways to consume cannabis. There are a variety of ways to consume: oil under the tongue, smoking, steaming, vaginal and rectal suppositories, eating and drinking. One of the preferred ways is to use oil under the tongue. The time it takes for the onset of the effect is a bit long compared to inhaling – about an hour and a half and lasts about 5 hours. For those who still prefer to use inflorescences, it is possible to evaporate the crushed inflorescence and get a quick effect within a few minutes. It is possible to eat the cannabis in the form of cookies and snacks of various kinds (not sold in Israel at this time). It is important to remember that in eating cannabis products the effect lasts even longer and starts only after about an hour and a half two hours from the moment of eating.

Cannabis does not impair function and memory. It was found that patients with Alzheimer’s returned to function and their behavior returned almost to normal following cannabis use. Patients who reported difficulty concentrating actually improved function after using certain strains of cannabis.
