CBD For Every Body

CBD has been used for hundreds of years as a pain reliever, a holistic anti-anxiety treatment, and a sleep aid among other things. In fact, these days you can find CBD in everything from green juices to skin salves. CBD is the hot ingredient for millennials and health conscious young adults. So, is it any wonder that senior citizens are turning to hemp-derived CBD products?

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound naturally found in the cannabis plant. The non-psychoactive cousin to THC, CBD can’t get you high. Instead, when ingested, CBD gets to work on your body’s endocannabinoid system. Our body’s endocannabinoid system is in charge of regulating sleep patterns, appetite and general mood. Our bodies already produce cannabinoids in its regulation of emotion and sleep – ingesting CBD can trigger the release of more.

What does CBD do?

In addition to triggering the release of cannabinoids, CBD works with the nervous system to intercept the transmission of pain signals in the body. It also influences the release of specific hormones and enzymes that can aid in digestive health and cognitive function. CBD is an effective treatment for a multitude of ailments prevalent among the elderly, from chronic pain to anxiety to sleep disorders.

Anxiety & Stress

Anxiety and stress is quite common in older adults. In serious cases, anxiety disorders in the elderly can lead to more serious conditions like chronic panic attacks and depression. As you know, stress negatively impacts a person’s ability to function, maintain relationships, focus on work or keep a healthy sleep schedule. That’ where CBD comes in. Cannabidiol works with your body’s nervous and endocannabinoid systems to stimulate the production of hormones that aid in mood regulation, making you feel calm and relaxed.

Fitness & Mobility

Staying fit and active is important for people of all ages. As we get older, muscle and joint pain can drastically affect our mobility. Simple things like playing walking the dogs, gardening or playing with grandkids become impossible to enjoy due to chronic pain. Over time, limited mobility can influence a person’s sense of independence, leading to depression and social isolation. Limited mobility can also have severe consequences in terms of physical health, endurance and immune functions. Because of its natural anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can be an effective treatment for pain and physical discomfort. When it interacts with your nervous system, CBD intercepts the transmission of pain signals, thus boosting your pain threshold. Whether you are looking to power through your daily fitness regimen or you just want to spend more time chasing your grandkids around the house, a daily dose of CBD for pain can help you stay active and independent well into your golden years.

Sleep & Sleeping Patterns

People all over the world use CBD to get a better night’s sleep. As we age, sleep disorders become more prevalent. Chronic pain, anxiety and depression can affect our ability to get truly restorative rest. That’s where CBD comes in. CBD stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which plays a huge role in regulating sleep patterns. This means that CBD can also help stabilize how you sleep. CBD can help enable longer periods of undisrupted sleep. This helps you feel more rested even with fewer actual sleep hours logged. Some research indicates that CBD may even promote more REM sleep – the type of deep sleep that gives you the rest your body really craves. With improved sleep, seniors (and folks of all ages!) can enjoy less pain, reduced anxiety, better appetite and a sunnier disposition.
