In 2010, after Chela’s mom, sixties glamor girl and television star Lisa Seagram, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, the couple was thrust into family caregiving and became fierce advocates for people living with dementia.
When her mother passed on February 1, 2019, the couple felt the need to share what they learned over their long journey: “Cannabis was by far the most effective medicine to ease the terrible behavioral symptoms of mom’s dementia,” says Chela Coennen.
In 2020, they launched Cannabis Helps Dementia podcast on Anchor.FM and distributed to all the podcast services.
In the coming year, their advocacy and podcast topics will expand to include others facing terminal illness and older people who might benefit from CBD, Medical Cannabis, and other "taboo" Natural Medicines. Subscribe to stay tuned!
