MUNCHIES ARE ALL FROM WHOLE FOODS –  

June 13, 2022 – Marijuana has the potential to worsen delirium in dementia patients, experts say. “The psychoactivity, or the high that cannabis causes, is another potential concern for older adults, especially those at risk for confusion and dementia,” warns Harvard Health. “These days, with the ability to buy cannabis in medical dispensaries, there is more control over the types or strains of cannabis that one can buy and consume, and it is easier to avoid the high by controlling the dose and by keeping the THC content low. Strains that are low in THC (the chemical that causes the high) and higher in CBD, which is non-intoxicating, may be preferable to avoid the psychoactive experience of marijuana. Still, if an older person has experienced delirium, or any psychiatric conditions, they and their doctors should proceed with caution.”
