There is such a great calming effect for dad now and there is no longer terror in his eyes when he can’t figure things out
It’s never easy watching someone you love suffer. But there is something very different about watching your hero succumb to dementia during the end stages of life. That has been the case for me as I try my best to help my dad manage his dementia. Remarkably, we are finding a great deal of help with medical cannabis and it’s been amazing to witness. Dad’s dementia has been creeping up on him for several years. But the time has come to where he had to have care and can’t live on his own. My sister and I share in his care as he lives with one or the other of us. It’s my sister who got the medical marijuana education in order to find alternatives to some of the medicines he was on. Regardless of what he was taking from the doctor’s, we just couldn’t find a way to calm him when he became confused and disoriented. But after a trip to the legal weed store, we were able to find cannabis products that really made the difference. Since cannabis flower products just weren’t feasible to use, we instead give dad cannabis gummies. And the result of this cannabis product is just what we were looking for. There is such a great calming effect for dad now and there is no longer terror in his eyes when he can’t figure things out. While medical marijuana is certainly not a cure, and there isn’t one out there, it sure does help relieve the suffering of a guy that means so much to me.
