CBD For Seniors
Cannabis is a family of plants that has different species, and marijuana is one such member of this family. Another entirely different species of the cannabis family of plants is hemp.
The two plants- marijuana and hemp- are completely different right from the way they look to their chemical composition.
Cannabinoids are chemicals that are present in all of the species of the cannabis family of plants. The cannabinoid that is associated with the feeling of ‘getting high’ is called THC or tetrahydrocannabinol. This cannabinoid is found in marijuana but not in hemp- traces may be present that makes up less than 0.3% of the total dry weight.
CBD or cannabidiol is a therapeutic cannabinoid that is not intoxicating and provides many wellness, health benefits to the user. This is what is called full-spectrum CBD. This is the basis of what is needed in understanding CBD.
What Is In It For Me?
The CBD helps in regulating your body mechanism and helps it to maintain a state of balance. As you know, the human body is a complex body with many processes taking place simultaneously. When the body processes are in sync, then that is when you feel healthy and in spirits. When the processes are out of sync, and are haywire then the body begins to show pain and discomfort. CBD is a natural supplement that helps to push the body in the right direction in order to restore order from chaos.
The list of benefits that are available to users includes the likes of reduced pain, reduced inflammation and swelling, reduced anxiety, improvement in mental health, you are relaxed and calmer, positive demeanor, and you get better sleep.
There is a whole load of other benefits that are anecdotal, with millions around the world reporting the increased quality that CBD has bought to their lives. More than 50% of those above the age of 65, in the United States alone, have tried CBD and have reported benefits—this makes up to 20.15 million seniors. What is stopping you from joining them?
However, be sure to get the help and expert advice of a doctor before you venture out to try CBD.
