The Health Benefits of CBD

Good news! As more research provides evidence of the medicinal benefits of CBD, more seniors look to it to manage or prevent some ailments. The stigma of CBD is giving way to more social acceptance. Seniors no longer equate it to breaking the law, as they did in their youth. 

Your body’s goal is to maintain balance through a series of neurotransmitters and receptors. When CBD binds to these receptors, it helps your body return to balance faster as it only targets what is out of balance in your body. While research is still ongoing, CBD is non-addictive and non-intoxicating. Adverse side effects usually occur when people take too high a dose for their system. 

Pain, anxiety, or insomnia are the most common symptoms for the use of CBD for seniors. The studies show a high efficacy rate for managing the pain of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer, to name a few. Another study showed how one month of continued use decreased anxiety for almost 80 percent of those who participated. The deep relaxation provided by CBD helps insomniacs fall asleep faster, and it stabilizes sleep patterns.
