Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound found in the cannabis plant. It has several potential health benefits, but research is still in its early stages. Some CBD products may be more suitable for seniors.
According to Forbes, nearly 51% of seniors who have tried CBD report an improved quality of life, and anecdotal evidence suggests CBD could help with a variety of issues impacting on this quality of life. Due to the quasi-legal status of this cannabinoid, much of what we know about CBD is limited to anecdotal reports, but studies are beginning to catch up.
There are some studies about the effect of CBD on seniors and how it could help them, but no concrete conclusions can be drawn so far. There is one study by the University of Queensland’s Centre for Superbug Solutions, which discovered that CBD possesses a potent antibacterial activity. Researchers have endorsed it as a “promising new antibiotic.”
Are you a senior and want to implement CBD in your life?
The beginnings can be confusing, especially if you don’t know anything about CBD. We advise you to read blogs first, so you get to know the basics. Secondly, talk to your doctor about it and see what he or she suggests. Thirdly, choose a trusted manufacturer. If you need more information about this, read our blog on How to find a high-quality CBD product. Also, think about what kind of products are more suitable for you. You can choose from many different types of products: oils, balms, active creams, skincare and more!
For a senior entering the CBD world, we suggest looking at topicals first. Why? A lot of studies have been made, and topicals have no side effects at all!
What is a topical CBD?
A topical CBD is any cream, lotion, or salve that’s infused with CBD and can be applied directly to the skin.
Seniors typically buy CBD topicals to alleviate muscle and joint discomfort. There are any number of skin conditions that occur in an aging population. It remains unclear whether CBD products have efficacy in coping with these conditions.
But for day-to-day use, for relieving joint discomfort there are some products that can help you. Let’s take, for example, our Dr. Kent Glucosamin cream. Glucosamine is a natural compound found in cartilage — the tough tissue that cushions joints. Most research shows that glucosamine sulfate can provide some relief for people with joint discomforts, especially those with discomforts of the knees.
Dr. Kent CBD GLUCOSAMINE CREAM provides an immediate, pleasant sensation of cooling and subsequent warming, due to the action of a carefully selected combination of active ingredients (menthol, camphor, methyl salicylate, clove essential oil and hot-pepper extract). A massage soothes the skin and stimulates the peripheral circulation and provides a warmth that relieves and relaxes. The product contains a combination of glucosamine sulfate, sodium chondroitin sulfate, MSM (organic sulfur) and hemp extract (Cannabis Sativa L.). Glucosamine and sodium chondroitin sulfate are components of healthy joints and connective tissue. The cream is used for the care and massage of joints of the arms and legs, as well as the massage of the neck and spine.
CBD is in its infancy, but it’s growing rapidly. For older adults, it may be especially beneficial at relieving discomfort.
If you’re interested in trying CBD, talk with your doctor, or find a CBD-friendly clinician who can advise you on the proper options for your lifestyle. If it works, then you have a low-risk way to help alleviate some common aging issues.
