Cannabis For Seniors

  • Why are Seniors flocking to cannabis and avoiding opioids? How are opioids more risky than cannabis?
  • What are cannabinoids, like CBD? What’s the problem with THC? Should Seniors avoid THC?
  • How is cannabis used? What are the cautions? How’s the effect of smoking cannabis compare to eating it? To using a topical?
  • How does a Senior determine dose? What do you mean when you say Seniors need to “learn” to use cannabis and should start low and go slow?”

Cannabis is much more that “weed” as it was once viewed. Chemical in cannabis interact synergistically with our bodies to reduce inflammation and resulting pain, soothe anxiety, elevate mood and optimism – all of which increase Seniors’ quality of life. The book Cannabis for Seniors is available from Amazon and all booksellers. It makes a great gift for a Senior.
