CBD for Seniors: Everything You Need to Know

Times are changing. Marijuana and cannabis aren’t seen as the ‘end-of-the-world’ drug that it once was. In fact in the UK cannabis was reduced to a Class B and there’s a call for it to be legalised, like it is in many states of the US. Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the non psychotropic excerpt from the same plant and many of our users have seen various health benefits. So we can see why the older generation would welcome a natural, alternative medicine to what they end up taking.

It’s not what you think it is

We  don’t want to judge people unfairly, especially the older generation but sometimes as soon as a word that sounds like ‘cannabis’ is used, the notion or product is immediately dismissed. Which means CBD doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Yes, it is harvested from the same plant as its cousin marijuana but the similarities basically end there. Unlike marijuana, there is no THC – the chemical that creates that ‘high’ feeling. Instead, CBD can claim to have many of the same benefits such as pain relief or reduced anxiety, which is why it has become so popular. Many stores are now stocking it and it’s become a mainstream product.

Nature versus manmade

Getting old is inevitable. And with it comes aches and pains and pills and tablets to help alleviate any ongoing medical conditions or just age associated ailments. But sometimes people don’t always want to be swallowing tablets all the time. CBD offers a natural alternative as it’s essentially plant-based. This is great for seniors who don’t want to be regularly on medication and are happy to try something new.

Easy to take

Medication can be a tough pill to swallow. At times, literally. And the less said about suppositories the better. CBD, on the other hand is available in various forms. Look for the best hemp oil UK and enjoy the country’s finest oil (which you can find here of course). It can be added to a cup of tea or taken direct. But it’s not just the bet CBD hemp oil UK we have, we also have the best CBD  vape oil UK too. So seniors who are already vapers may like to try CBD in vape form. And we have a lot to try. There are also a range of edibles such as gummies which make ingesting it even easier and tastier.

Our customers love it

We have customers from a range of ages and our senior customers love the CBD products we have available. Not just because we have an extensive collection but because they’ve said that it’s helped them reduce their ongoing aches and pains without having to down loads of pills, and it’s also helped with sleeping issues such as insomnia. The best thing we heard was from one of our customers who said that it’s “made growing old fun”.
