The Benefits of Cannabis for Seniors
One group of people who is really benefitting from the growth and popularity of cannabis products is people over the age of 65. For far too long, people of this generation were told about the bad effects of weed through propaganda like the Reefer Madness film. Now that the smoke has cleared on cannabis, seniors are starting to see the benefits of cannabis more clearly. And Tahoe Harvest Collection is making it even more accessible with cannabis delivery for seniors in Truckee and North Lake Tahoe.
Cannabis has a ton of benefits for seniors. Seniors can get cannabis through brownies, chocolates, gummy candies, capsules, lotions — and yes even smoking and vaporizing (those convenient little pen-like devices everyone is carrying around in their pocket these days). Some people can even give up a portion of their prescription pharmaceuticals when they bring cannabis products into their routine.
Cannabis Helps You Relax
If you like to sit back and take it easy at the end of a long day (or even at the beginning or middle), adding some cannabis can help. Many people are used to having a glass of alcohol in the evening as a way to wind down. Cannabis is a way to relax without the headache or other negative aftereffects that come from alcohol. As we get older, enjoying a few glasses of alcohol can leave us feeling fatigued for days. Cannabis consumption does not cause the same hangover.
Cannabis Increases Appetite
If you struggle with not eating enough calories for any reason (even medical treatments), cannabis can help increase your appetite. Many people laugh at the stereotypical munchies, but there is some truth to the weed munchies idea. Consuming cannabis releases chemicals in your brain that may make you feel hungry.
Some studies suggest that cannabis affects the way we smell and taste foods. Taking cannabis before a meal can make every aspect of it more intense and enjoyable. This is partly why consuming cannabis increases your appetite: food tastes better,
Cannabis Helps Relieve Pain and Inflammation
One of the benefits people are seeing from cannabis use is pain relief. Cannabis is used to treat nociceptive pain, neuropathic pain and central pain. A professional at a dispensary like Tahoe Harvest Collection can help you find a cannabis product engineered to target your specific type of pain.
There is a lot of science on how exactly cannabis treats pain. The summary is that putting cannabis in or on your body activates several pain relievers — called cannabinoid receptors — that already exist in your body.
Cannabis is Used to Treat Several Serious Health Conditions
There are several ongoing scientific studies focused on using cannabis to treat conditions such as chronic pain, epilepsy, glaucoma, insomnia, multiple sclerosis and even cancer. If you suffer from any long-term conditions, look into the ways that cannabis is helping people in innovative ways in that area.
Cannabis is Fun for Seniors
Last but not least, taking cannabis can be a lot of fun for seniors. Spending the night on your couch with a few friends (or by yourself in the time of Covid) can be a barrel of laughs. Things just seem funnier with a little cannabis in your system. Movies, conversations, crossword puzzles, whatever you enjoy: it’s all a little different with cannabis.
You definitely want to stay home the first time you enjoy a new cannabis product (unless it’s a topical product). Make sure you feel steady and sure of yourself before you go out exploring the world. Until you are sure you can handle the effects, try cannabis at home or in another safe place where you can relax for a while if necessary.
The Biggest Obstacle for Seniors is Getting Over the Stigma
Over the past few years, there have been several documentaries and videos made about cannabis for seniors. Watching a few of these stories can help seniors sort the truth from the rumors and better understand how cannabis can help them.
