It’s absolutely sort of odd to be taking care of my mom the way she must have taken care of me when I first got to planet earth; I couldn’t understand how to take care of myself so she did it for me; Due to dementia, my mom is now in that same boat a lot of the time… Thanks to medical marijuana being available in our state, she is at least more comfortable when the confusion sets in, then she is now with us as she enters the final stages of her life, however for sure, she’s had a fantastic run but it’s so hard to witness the bad effects of dementia.
I hate it for her plus the fear in her eyes was something that has been so difficult for me to deal with, however after learning more about the medical marijuana benefits for someone in my mom’s situation, I decided that it might be worth a try! With her healthcare worker’s blessing, I started the process of working through the medical marijuana regulations so I could get some cannabis products.
I knew that smoking cannabis flower products was out of the question. That’s just not something my mom could do. She hated smoking her whole life so I’m so ecstatic that I was able to get medical cannabis edibles. They come in the form of cannabis gummies. About half of one of those cannabis gummies is about all she needs to help her feel safe plus comfortable. Within 20 minutes, the fear is gone from her eyes as there seems to be some sort of subconscious acceptance or something. All I cherish is that my mom feels a bit more comfortable as she comes to the end of her life. I can’t tell you how grateful I am that we have access to a legal weed store for her comfort.
