Aging is natural and it is now possible to naturally enhance and slow down the process. Fortunately, for today’s senior, the relatively recent introduction of the cannabinoid CBD into the natural health and wellness industry has been a game changer. The benefits of CBD for seniors are proving to provide a natural alternative to chemically based medications for a variety of senior health challenges. So, whether you are a senior yourself or a family member looking for support for your aging parents or relatives, here are 5 benefits of CBD that just might offer your loved ones an effective whole body therapeutic treatment aid.
1.) CBD For Pain Relief
CBD has been shown to be an effective treatment aid for pain and chronic pain. Along with the aging process, come various types of pain and discomfort, from arthritis and other autoimmune disorders to neurodegenerative conditions. Even just daily aches, pains and stiffness that seem to come and go, increase with aging.
CBD is a safe, non-toxic, non-psychoactive natural alternative to prescription medications and their, often serious, side effects. You can also rest easy knowing that your elderly family member won’t be subjected to the possibility of overdose.
2.) CBD For Digestive Health
One of the ancient uses for cannabis sativa was for treatment of digestive issues. It has now been shown, through scientific research, that the cannabinoid CBD, from the cannabis sativa and hemp plant, may be an effective treatment aid for various digestive disorders.
Age-specific gastrointestinal complications of the bowels and digestive system are mostly due to inflammation and/or cell deterioration in the digestive tract lining. It has been shown that CBD plays an active role in stimulating the cells in the gastrointestinal lining and reducing inflammation, thereby providing an effective treatment.
Daily dosing of CBD oil can provide both relief and prevention of digestive and intestinal conditions, resulting in an enhanced daily experience.
3.) CBD For Bone Health
Bone degeneration, osteoporosis, is one of the most common conditions of aging. It is of utmost importance for seniors to pay attention to maintaining optimal bone health. Recent research demonstrates that CBD supplementation might play a significant role in the maintenance of bone health.
Daily dosing of CBD can help prevent advanced osteoporosis and help provide strength and mobility to the joints.
4.) CBD For Insomnia and Sleep Disorders
One of the most popular uses of CBD tincture is to manage sleeping disorders. In addition, many people take CBD oil each night just to have a great night's sleep. CBD's pain relief, anti-anxiety and calming properties make it the perfect, natural way to enjoy quality sleep, at any age!
5.) CBD For Anxiety-Free Golden Years
Seniors, just like people of all ages, can experience bouts of anxiety. As a matter of fact, CBD's most prominent use is for managing anxiety. The anti-anxiety properties of CBD are well researched and have proven to be effective, even for extreme anxiety conditions, like PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).
