Alzheimer’s + Chronic Pain / Insomnia + SECRET INGREDIENT

Alzheimer’s + Chronic Pain / Insomnia + SECRET INGREDIENT

Emma Knox

     Even before the diagnosis, your mom had an affliction. She had a condition, a pain, that made every day a little harder than it should’ve been and made her (and your) wallet a little thinner. But now, now that she’s been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s too, “hard” and “thin” are flimsy, weak adjectives… They can’t nearly describe the physical and mental pain your mother (and everyone who loves her) feels. Almost half of people with Alzheimer’s are simultaneously affected by chronic pain and roughly one in four have insomnia. So not only is an Alzheimer’s patient being shredded from the inside, but they’re likely being shredded on the outside too. They’re getting stripped of their humanity from every end. CBD can help restore that humanity.

     Above a lot else, CBD helps reduce pain. If you search “CBD benefits” in a search engine, you’ll find many articles… and most of them list pain as the first reason to take CBD. Then sleep. I, my mother, and my grandmother all take CBD for sleep. My grandfather takes CBD to help with his joint pain. A family friend takes CBD to help her Crohn’s. And it works. Especially when you’re enduring multiple causes of pain and discomfort, CBD can help you. It will alleviate some of your pain, your inability to sleep, and make you feel a little peppier throughout the day. With CBD, you can play with your grandkids for two hours instead of 30 minutes. You can walk your dog long enough for him to (eventually) (finally) (why does it take so long?) take a shit. You can sleep, really sleep, and not have to watch hideous evening news until dawn- or worse yet, stare at your ceiling all night in hope of relief.

     Alzheimer’s isn’t a pleasant disease… in fact, it’s severely unpleasant… and pain often comes along with it (as does a lack of sleep). In the case you aren’t able to alleviate your mental symptoms, CBD is the best way to at least help your physical ones. And, consequently, feeling better physically will help you feel better mentally. More yet, better sleep is consistent with happier feelings and improved days; the same goes for lessened pain. By taking CBD and reducing everything outside your body, you’re helping everything inside your body too. You’re giving yourself a hand out of the pit. You’re helping yourself. That’s what CBD is.

     Alzheimer’s + Chronic Pain/Insomnia ≠ A Happy, Fulfilling Life. But Alzheimer’s + Chronic Pain/Insomnia + CBD can = A Happier, More Fulfilling Life. CBD is the secret ingredient in your life’s equation. NobleCanni is the apothecary that guides you to it. Factor it in your everyday life and you’ll notice a change.
