Cannabidiol Care: CBD Older Adults
Posted on December 8th, 2023 to Medical Cannabis
Hemp isn’t just for hipsters. CBD products are seeing a rise in popularity among older adults who are looking for more natural remedies in dealing with their everyday health concerns. As the cultural stigma of both cannabis and hemp starts to wane in the United States, many American seniors have begun their journey of exploring CBD-infused products for their extensive health benefits. CBD has many health applications and, best of all, you can get it without a prescription.** Aging comes with its own set of unique concerns (stress, trouble sleeping, sore muscles, overall wellness, and so on), making CBD a must-have for your supplement shelf!
WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive compound produced by the hemp plant. We experience positive effects from CBD due to its interaction with our body’s endocannabinoid system, a naturally occurring cell-signaling system that interacts with our central and peripheral nervous systems, as well as other organs and systems throughout the body. These systems help your body regulate and perform various critical functions, including sleep, appetite, motor control, memory, mood and more. CBD can give you that extra boost in your journey to better health!**
IS CBD SAFE FOR SENIORS? HOW TO MANAGE ADVERSE EFFECTS
It’s always important to take care when trying new medications or supplements, and that includes CBD. While side effects are rare, CBD can interact with some medications. Speak to your doctor and pharmacist about CBD if you’re already taking medication.
Many seniors worry that CBD will produce the same mind-altering effects as marijuana, but that is firmly not the case. The CBD we use comes from the hemp plant, a low-THC form of cannabis (so, not high-THC marijuana). Hemp has only tiny traces of THC, not enough to get you high. And if even those tiny traces (less than 0.3%, as per the 2018 US Farm Bill) concern you, you can opt for a filtered form of CBD, like broad spectrum CBD or CBD isolate.
If you are interested in exploring a deeper cannabis experience, we have full-spectrum CBD products with a delta-9 THC boost. This bliss-inducing CBD combo is perfect for folks looking to unwind and experience low-dose THC effects.
When using legal THC products with CBD, make sure to start slow with a low dosage to avoid experiencing any adverse effects. Enjoy these good-vibe products from the safety of your home and never drive or operate heavy machinery when you take one of our delta-9 THC products. That being said, the era of Reefer Madness and fear-mongering is over. There is most certainly a healthy and responsible way for older adults to enjoy these products. Just plan ahead, take your time, and you’ll be good to go!
