My grandmother attends church every Sunday, reads the Bible daily, thinks caffeine is a drug, and won’t go into any restaurant that sells alcohol. But, she eats weed.
At 75 years old, she started to experience sever back pain that prevented her from doing things she loved. Gardening became an impossible pain, and her daily walks in the forest with her dog turned into hours in her lay-z-boy.
Needless to say, Grammy was a prime candidate for medicinal green. But, she wouldn’t take it. I talked to her about it, showed her studies on results and tons of testimonials. Still, for Gram, weed was illegal and something that shouldn’t be touched.
The day she couldn’t get out of bed to attend Bible study was the day she called me. So, I brought her a little piece of weed cookie. Long story short, she has an edible daily now, but still refuses to talk anyone about it, except me and my sisters.
Check out this blog which is told from the perspective of a woman in a similar situation. Vanessa-Lyn grew up in the suburbs of Montreal, where she was taught and believed that weed only brought negatives. However, medicinal cannabis turned out to be the solution to her chronic back pain. Take a look at her story and see if it helps you convince a loved one that medicinal pot may be helpful for them.
