We Recently Received This Question From Mary Regarding Her Mom, So We Had This Written…Not Medical Advice:) The Question:
“My mother is 80 yrs old and has Alzheimer’s, and I have heard about CBD oil being beneficial to slowing disease progression. I don’t need medical marijuana services or a card but would like to understand how CBD is used dosed and benefit/risk. I would rather speak to clinicians than dealers or enthusiasts.
