Life expectancy is rising, and adults are having fun and staying active longer. However, the wisdom years can bring aches and pains, restless nights, and illness. For many people, pills and conventional treatments don’t help, and the side effects can be too much to bear. It's no wonder people are turning to cannabis as an alternative. Cannabis use among the elderly is growing as there is more public acceptance and reduced stigma. Medical cannabis is increasingly viewed as an effective option for managing insomnia and chronic pain. It’s key to have an informed discussion with your doctor to weigh the safety risks, especially if you have cardiac issues, are taking multiple medications, or have cognitive changes due to aging. Educate yourself (and your doctor) as much as possible about cannabis before starting to use it. Most of the adverse effects associated with cannabis usage are dose-related, so it is important to know the strength of the cannabis you are taking and to “start low and go slow”: start with the lowest effective dose and take your time working your way up to a dose that alleviates your symptoms with a minimum of side effects.
Harvard Health Publishing of Harvard Medical School, states, "A confluence of factors seems to be responsible, including the decrease in stigma associated with cannabis use and the increased interest in the use of medical cannabis by older patients. Stigma is a complicated issue, but most would agree that the stigma associated with cannabis use is lessening, especially for medical cannabis. In a recent poll, 94% of Americans voiced support for legal access to medical cannabis, and most states have approved some form of legal access. One marker for the decrease in stigma is the recent statement by the 38 million-member AARP, in which they declared their support for the medical use of cannabis for older adults in states that have legalized it, in close consultation with their medical providers, where they can discuss the most up-to-date clinical evidence, weighing the balance of benefits and harms." The bottom line: Cannabis has been known to improve quality of life. Ancient cultures have been using it as a medicinal herb for thousands of years. In modern days, scientific research has shown it can provide relief from serious illnesses like arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, and many more.
