Why Seniors Use CBD

Using an over-the-counter medication or prescription doesn’t have to be the only choice anymore when it comes to general wellness. For those looking to limit the number of pills they need to take each day, CBD may serve as a more natural alternative. Below are some of the common reasons why seniors use CBD.

Arthritis & Joint Pain

As we age, we want to keep living our normal lives without worrying about aches and pains. CBD can help alleviate some of the issues we face in our advanced years. Studies have shown that the use of topical CBD solutions may help in the relief of arthritis pain and inflammation, which can help us live more active lives. Additionally, for seniors living with certain cardiovascular disorders, CBD may have shown the ability to reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, which would potentially provide pain relief.

Sleep Aid

Getting a good night’s sleep is the first step to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. With CBD, we have the chance to get back the hours spent tossing and turning. Even though CBD and its effects on sleep are still being researched, recent studies have shown that CBD may help treat insomnia, and that it does not interfere with a person’s sleep cycle like some anxiety or depression medications might.

Safer on Stomach

Years of taking different medications can lead to complications with the stomach, liver, or kidneys. With product options like CBD sublingual oils and topical salves, we have the ability to get all the vitamins and nutrients we need without ever needing to involve the stomach. Even if we choose to use a CBD gummy or daily softgel to get the daily CBD dosage via digestion, both are designed to be easy on the stomach.

Alternative to NSAIDs & Opioids

The most common way we’ve handled aches and pains in the past has been through the prescription of opioids and non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs. While this has helped many people deal with pain and inflammation, it has led to a rise in addictions and other health problems. CBD is a natural alternative that our bodies have the ability to process and accept, thanks to our endocannabinoid system (ECS). CBD interacts directly with this system’s receptors, which is where it’s believed pain relief and inflammation reduction comes from.

Pushing Past the CBD Myths

At Frontier Jackson, we’re dedicated to helping anyone ready to set out on a new path by providing all of the information you need about the all-natural alternative of CBD. If you’re concerned about using CBD because of misconceptions surrounding it, here are three common myths debunked:

Myth: CBD Gets You High

This is not true. While it is true that CBD (or cannabidiol) comes from hemp plants—which are part of the cannabis family—CBD from hemp contains less than 0.3% of THC, the compound found in marijuana that elicits that “high” feeling. CBD interacts with our bodies in a different way than THC, primarily affecting our nervous and immune systems, but it doesn’t induce the psychoactive effects of THC.

Myth: CBD Is Illegal

Similar to the thinking behind “CBD gets you high,” CBD is often mischaracterized as a Schedule I drug. While not every state currently allows the sale of CBD, 33 states do currently allow the sale and usage of CBD without any caveats, with another 14 states still determining the legality of sale and verbiage as to how CBD is understood. Currently, only three states (Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota) have unclear laws regarding the sale of CBD, making it difficult to find CBD in those states, but also not limiting its use.

Myth: CBD Is Addictive

The thinking behind this myth comes from the fact that CBD interacts with our central nervous systems through the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It has been shown that with the introduction of CBD to our bodies that dopamine levels will rise, but the ECS helps to modulate this increase. This means that CBD may actually help to balance our body’s necessary hormone function, leaving us to feel better each day.

CBD Products for Seniors

CBD Oils

A great option for anyone with stomach-related issues. CBD oils are taken sublingually, meaning you allow the CBD to be absorbed through mucus membranes under your tongue. This avoids the gastrointestinal tract completely and is seen as one of the most effective CBD delivery methods.

CBD Gummies & Softgels

Like vitamins, CBD gummies and daily softgels are simple to implement into your daily routine. You can take them first thing in the morning or right before bed. In addition, these CBD edibles are gentle on your stomach.

CBD Topicals

Target the areas where relief is needed most with a CBD salve or ointment. Topicals are the ideal for addressing symptoms that oils and edibles might not target, yet they work best when combined with other options to provide full-body relief.

Choose Your Own Path

Taking CBD is a personal choice. Though some may not understand how CBD works, know that there are countless people—and animals—it has helped. If you’re ready to experience the beneficial properties found in CBD, Frontier Jackson is here to help.
