Medical Cannabis for Older Canadians
Are You Eligible?
Medical Cannabis for older Canadians offers safe new options to older pharmaceuticals with known side effects. For decades, cannabis was portrayed in the media merely as an illegal drug used to get people high, and the people who use cannabis as no more than drug addicts and hippies seeking a desperate measure to detach from reality. As more jurisdictions begin to legalize the use of medical cannabis, these negative stigmas are being disproven simply as “scare tactics”, and replaced with scientific evidence backing cannabis as an aid towards health and wellness.
Older Canadian citizens grew up during a time when cannabis was illegal in Canada and the United States. Accordingly, the golden generation may perhaps be the most misinformed about cannabis, yet, ironically, might also be the age demographic that benefits the most from this natural plant. Below are 10 things Older Canadian citizens should know about medical cannabis. Things have changed and new information and research can make your life easier and reduce pain and sleep issues.
