CBD for grandmas and grandpas.
…or “How you explain CBD to seniors!”
You are already a fan of CBD and think that your grandparents could also benefit from it? However, you don’t know how to start the conversation because grandma and grandpa automatically associate hemp plant with smoking pot? Then you’ve come to the right place. In this post you’ll find the ultimate CBD guide for oldies! So here we go!
Finding the right start
First of all, grandma and grandpa were also young once. The probability that they have tasted the green herb in their youth is not so small 😉 In addition, the effect of CBD is now spreading in older circles. Our oldest customer is a proud 97 years old! A good introduction, for example, would be: “Hey grandma*grandpa! Did you know that you can also consume hemp products without getting high? Hemp contains not only THC, but also CBD! CBD is said to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties.”
Why CBD in old age?
There are a variety of reasons why older people can benefit from CBD. In old age, unfortunately, not only certain diseases accumulate, but often older people are also particularly burdened by their everyday lives.
Many people do not get enough sleep in old age because the natural day-night rhythm no longer works so well. A study from 2019 has shown that CBD can have a positive effect here. This rhythm is particularly important to keep the immune system as strong as possible for as long as possible.
2. Worries & Anxiety
Also, older people are often increasingly plagued by worries & anxiety. How CBD can help with anxiety-related sleep disorders, we have already discussed here. The past year has been incredibly stressful for the grandparent generation. CBD can also be a support for anxieties around Corona.
3. Inflammations, Arthritis & Co
Another topic that gains importance in old age is inflammation, rheumatic diseases or arthritis. Here, too, research is already being done diligently. In 2016, researchers found evidence that CBD can have a positive effect on inflammatory joint disease.
4. Wound healing
The older we get, the worse our wound healing also becomes. This often means a major restriction in everyday life. Especially with diabetes type 2, which is also called adult-onset diabetes, there are open wounds that heal very poorly. A research group in Maryland has studied how CBD can help here. The studies suggest that CBD has a positive influence on wound healing.
Our psychological well-being also has a major influence on the aging process. Each of us has probably experienced in our private lives that growing older is not necessarily easy. Many older people suffer from loneliness and the loss of loved ones. Here, too, CBD can be helpful due to its mood-lifting properties.
What do you need to pay attention to?
You and your grandparents are now convinced that they may very well benefit in old age? Very good! Then we now have a very important piece of information for you: Unfortunately, the endocannabinoid system declines with age. BUT this does not mean that all hope is lost. Quite the opposite. We therefore recommend older people to reach for our organic CBD oil. Hemp oil naturally supports the synthesis of endocannabinoids in the body and thus also the build-up of the endocannabinoid system in old age. It can only take a little longer than in young people. Therefore, it is recommended to stick with it for a few weeks! Have a little patience, we are sure: It’s worth it!
