Medicinal Cannabis for older Australians 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 legalise the use of medicinal cannabis, these negative stigmas have been disproved simply as “scare tactics”, and replaced with scientific evidence backing cannabis as an aid towards health and wellness.
Older Australian citizens grew up during a time when cannabis was illegal in Australia 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 Australian citizens should know about medicinal cannabis. Things have changed and new information and research can make your life easier and reduce pain and sleep issues.
