Benefits

Melanie Brown lives in Colorado and she is a mother of two kids. In the past, she went through extreme debilitating migraines for many years. These migraines were so intense that it greatly affected her parenting. As medical cannabis was already legal in Colorado by then, Melanie got to know about the therapeutic benefits of cannabis along with its use to treat migraines. She consulted her doctor and got a prescription. Melanie took medical cannabis through a vape pen whenever she felt migraine hitting up. Medical cannabis had such a positive effect on her and all her symptoms of debilitating migraines faded away.

Melanie realized that cannabis was only a feasible solution for her headaches and told her children about it. Her kids knew the severity of her migraines so they understood her problem. Now, Melanie says that her ability to pamper kids has enhanced because there is no more headache.

Cannabis has many health benefits. It can be used to treat a variety of diseases. It can be used to relieve the after-effects of chemotherapy and also to reduce the pain. Hence, parents must consider this very important to have friendly discussions of cannabis usage and benefits with their kids and other parents as well.

Cheryl Shuman

Now, let us talk about Cheryl Shuman who is the founder of Beverly Hills Cannabis Club. To treat PTSD, she started using marijuana prescribed by her therapist. The pills she was taking before as antidepressants made him sluggish. Whereas, cannabis had a very positive impact on her without making her sluggish.

She didn’t tell her daughters about cannabis until her daughter saw her smoking cannabis late night one day. Instead of lying, she owned everything by justifying how cannabis has changed her life in treating her depression and anxiety. Her daughters understood seeing the marked difference with cannabis in their mother.

According to Shuman, parents must avail every opportunity to tell children about their family narrative about cannabis. Parents must ask their kids about how they feel or what do they understand whenever they see any cannabis-related billboard or dispensary.

Age-appropriate discussions

One thing must be kept in mind that these discussions ought to be age-appropriate. Younger children must be told not to touch and stay away from vape pens, edibles and, other products by explaining that these are not for kids. However, older kids must be told about the reasons why marijuana is bad for young children.

For example, when kids ask about a joint or pot, the answer must be like it is an herb which adults consume and you can also decide for yourself to consume it or not when you grow up. The key here is that parents must stress only adults can use herb.

Sheryl Ziegler, a therapist, says that parents must tell their children the exact reason for using cannabis instead of lying. Whether they are using it to treat side effects of chemotherapy or for mental health problems.

While canna-conversations with your family are private, discussions with other parents may be more difficult to gauge. Just as other parents would like to know if there are guns or alcohol in the home before a play date, Post says inquiring about cannabis is a fair game. It’s important to be prepared for adverse reactions.

To initiate cannabis discussions with other parents are much tough but they must be told about cannabis benefits if they are not aware of it. Shuman says that the parents of her daughters’ friends showed hesitance to let their kids come over to her home when they got to know about her cannabis consumption. She then invited those families at  dinner and explained the benefits and positive effects of cannabis.

Lastly, children should understand the problems of their parents why they consume cannabis and be respectful whatever their choice is.
