The use of CBD is rapidly growing amongst all generations, including senior citizens. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which is why many seniors may prefer CBD to traditional cannabis products.
As the body ages, many systems are thrown into a state of imbalance. This can occur across a wide range of systems including the limbic, nervous, systemic and neurological systems. When systems are unbalanced, symptoms will arise.
CBD may have beneficial effects on managing pain and inflammation, nausea, mood, appetite and many others.
CBD is extremely beneficial at managing side effects of pharmaceutical medications. Many seniors are required to take several medications each day to help their body function optimally, and keeping track of interactions and side effects may be difficult. CBD has the benefit of not interacting with other medications and is often used to curb the side effects of other medications, such as nausea and dizziness.
CBD may also be an alternative to pain medication for senior citizens. Seniors’ systems are often very sensitive to opioid medications, which may cause confusion or disorientation. CBD can help to manage pain symptoms without unnecessary side effects.
Speak With Your Physician
As with all medication and health supplement usage, consult your physician before beginning a new regimen. Although CBD has very few side effects, and even fewer medication interactions, its use should still be supervised by a licensed healthcare professional.
