CBD for Seniors: How to Choose the best CBD Products for those with more life experience.

 

Remember when Beanie Babies, pet rocks, and Rubik’s cubes were once insanely popular items on the must have list? You may also recall that interest in these products faded as the novelty wore off. With the rapidly increasing interest in CBD, many people, particularly those with a tad more life experience, wonder if the growing popularity will result in CBD becoming another passing fad.

If so far you feel like I have described you and your reservations you may find the following information useful.

If you’ve been curious about CBD products, it may be helpful to know that hemp-derived CBD is getting favourable reviews from people of all ages, including those 65 and older. Knowing the many reasons other seniors are using CBD could help you decide if CBDS3 products could also be right for you.

 

Seniors are Loving CBD Products

Seniors are loving CBD (cannabidiol) for its ability to influence the receptors of their endocannabinoid system (ECS), the largest regulatory system in your body. It’s the interaction between the messengers and receptors of this essential system that keep nearly every function in your body running the way it’s supposed to.

Under the effects of illness, stress, or injury, your body may need more ECS messengers than it can make. If that happens, communication can fail. CBD mimics the effects of the chemical messengers made in your body and interacts with the receptors of your endocannabinoid system.

Just a few of the many functions regulated by your ECS include:

  • Sleep Cycle Regulation
  • Metabolism and Appetite Regulation
  • Regulating Moods and Emotions
  • Immune System Function
  • Functions of Memory and Learning.  

 

4 Popular ways to take CBD for Seniors and the Elderly

I am sure while browsing your options you have noticed various forms CBD comes in, the multiple ways to take CBD can be confusing, so to simplify. The product you select should fit your needs and your lifestyle. The most popular methods include:

  • #1 CBD Tinctures and Oils
    CBD tinctures can be used in many ways. You can place the oil under your tongue and hold for 30 seconds before swallowing or these can be added to any beverage.
  • #2 CBD Gummies
    For those with a sweet tooth and not a fan of the natural taste of CBD, gummies are an excellent solution. These are very easy to take and keep track of dosage.
  • #3 CBD Capsules
    CBD capsules are most often preferred by seniors looking for a convenient way to take CBD. These are all pre-dosed so it is very easy to take your daily dose without any faff.
  • #4 Topical CBD
    Topicals are ideal for seniors who want the benefits of CBD to be targeted to a specific area of the body. This method takes longer to circulate the full body in comparison to an oil or capsules.

 

Cost

Value for money is a huge concern for all age groups not just seniors. However to achieve the best value sometimes you may need to spend a bit more. When taking CBD the higher the (mg) the better. For example a 30ml bottle containing 1500mg for £60 is far better value than a same size bottle containing 500mg for £30. It may cost more however you will need far less per dose.

 

Please consult your medical professional first:

Although CBD is considered a safe, natural product with little risk of side effects, CBD use is not recommended for everyone. If you have a medical condition or take medication, it’s important to discuss your interest in CBD with your doctor before ordering.
