Wellness wednesday Suzannah Rowan
Saturday Spotlight Interview with Suzannah Rowan, team member in the Hartford, CT office. -What are the conditions you are currently treating with cannabis? “I have been using cannabis for a number of them. I have occipital neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, zygomatic neuralgia, temporal neuralgia, and facial neuropathy in my peripheral nerves.” -How long have you been battling these conditions? “I was diagnosed in 2011. I went through over a year of testing, trialing around 50 medications to try and treat my conditions. I found a physician who developed an experimental surgery to treat the cause of my pain, not just the symptoms. From 2012-2013, I traveled back and forth to Washington D.C. and had 4 surgeries within a few months of each other. With no test available to confirm a diagnosis without surgery, this was by far the biggest risk I have taken in my life.

Grandma Is The New Face Of Cannabis
Silver Haze In The Golden Years Even as the boomer generation—the one known for “tuning in and dropping out”—approaches retirement, there’s a long-held stigma surrounding marijuana among older people. For many who were young in the 1960s and 70s, cannabis was something seen at parties, possibly experimented with, but for the most part set aside. It’s hard to get past decades of federal prohibition and criminalization, so it’s little wonder that in 2017 only three percent of adults over 65 years old reported being “current smokers.”  However, with medical cannabis continuing to spread through the country—and with more and more research pointing to its benefits for everything from chronic pain and sleep problems to anxiety and arthritis—the tide seems to be turning. In fact, in the 30 states that allow medical or recreational use, the fastest growing demographic of users is adults over 50.  The face of who is using this substance is getting older and wiser.
