My sister is on hospice and they totally approve of CBD and edibles. Thankful we live in Washington where it’s legal!! I just started her on the CBD. The edibles I give as needed. I give her Zquill at night to sleep. Fast acting!
Good luck to you and your husband.

My doctor approved the CBD oil, said what we are doing now is looking for quality of life. Have not tried it yet.

I give my h CBD and hope it helps with his moods and anxiety. He doesn’t take any Alzheimer’s medications, just blood pressure medication. I would check to see if there are any drug interactions before trying it. My husband calls it voodoo when I’m putting drops under his tongue, but I think it takes the edge off when we’re having a hard day. I don’t know about how to handle the wanting to go home. Hopefully it’s a phase that passes quickly. 🤞🙏

My husband has severe aggressive tendencies & his Neurologist suggested Rivastigmine Transdermal 24 hr. patches which has helped a lot! He is also on Seroquel but not CBS oil. With 26 medications to keep him stable I am afraid to add Marijuana

We believe it is better than using narcotics! You can’t overdose on it and it works well for my sister.
