Let’s talk about grief, shall we?

I unwillingly gained entrance into the dead mum’s club in 2018.   

She was 72.  I was able to sleep in her ICU room throughout her nine-day stay, listening to the beeps and gasps of life-supporting machines.  When it was time to either move forward with a main line or say goodbye, I was able to hold her hand as she took her last breath.  At the time, a handful of other family members had passed and filled me with sadness and mental pain, but this death knocked me down and showed me how physically painful grief can be. One sad silver lining from the current covid situation is that I am blessed she passed when she did as I was able to share those last days with her.

Whether it be my age or due to covid circumstances, death has become a weekly occurrence.  The average bereavement leave from most jobs is five days.  From anxiety, depression, anger and heartache to, exhaustion, tension, muscle pains and headaches, griefs symptoms range in severity and can last a lifetime to one degree or another.  It is sickening, literally and physically, to expect people to mourn that fast as grief is often a life-long diagnosis.  Many seek out prescriptions in an effort to numb pain, alleviate physical inflammation and quiet racing thoughts and emotions.   

Using cannabinoids such as CBD and/or hemp oils, tinctures, topicals and edibles gave me a holistic option to the alternatives of over-the-counter and prescription drugs most people recommended to me. Cannabinoids naturally boosted my body’s endocannabinoid system and eased my pain, reduced my anxiety and depression and aided my overall wellbeing. It helped me get through the toughest time of my life.

There are a number of products available that can be added to a daily routine to balance the body and mind.  The passing of a loved one is never forgotten and as we grow older, we lose more people.  Grief compounds.  A holistic approach to manage the waves of pains and emotions for the long term is a healthy way to feel better.
