Not only does she grow multiple strains of cannabis at her house in northern California, but she uses these plants to cook medical marijuana edibles. Being Italian, naturally her favorite dishes to cook are Italian food.
Why does Nonna love cooking marijuana? Perhaps it all stems (pun intended) from her daughter, Valerie, who at one point was on multiple different pharmaceuticals for seizures. After educating herself on the health benefits of medical cannabis, she started self-administering cannabis and in a small amount of time she was able to discontinue all pharmaceutical drugs.
Valeria describes why she started using cannabis as her medicine:
I was suffering a significant number of seizures per day, and I was strung out on pharmaceuticals, they weren’t making any difference. I was desperate, so I started experimenting with medical marijuana and in about 3 1/2 weeks I noticed a difference in my seizures. I stopped taking pharmaceuticals, and started calling cannabis my medicine.
Valerie is one of the founders of WAAM (Women/Mens Alliance for Medical Marijuana), which is responsible for helping to pave the way for medical marijuana use in California. “WAAM is an organization supplies patients and their caregivers medical marijuana on a donation basis.”
