New study finds seniors are likely to recommend CBD

A new insight into the helpfulness of cannabidiol, or CBD, products for older people has been revealed.

According to a new survey, nearly 90% of seniors in the U.S. who have tried out CBD oils and other CBD products said they would recommend these remedies to friends.

The survey was conducted by Remedy Review and included 1,000 people over the age of 54.

Other results of the study were that 78% of survey respondents said they were satisfied by CBD products, 51% said it improved their quality of life, and the most common method of ingesting the products was through CBD oil drops under the tongue.

Pain, trouble sleeping, anxiety and stress were the top reasons the survey respondents gave for why they first tried CBD.

There is still work to be done, however. Only about 9% of seniors have actually tried out CBD, according to the Remedy Review survey.

That leaves a lot of room for more of us to get the word out to our older friends, family and neighbors!

Seniors often use these products for pain relief, glaucoma and to stimulate bone health. While added need to keep track of personal medication and scheduling surely comes with aging, many happy users rely on CBD to keep their dependence on pharmaceuticals at bay.

According to the AARP, the interest from older people extends beyond CBD, too. According to their site, in June 2018 over 36 percent of medical marijuana cardholders in the U.S. were over 50 years old. [3]

This surge of interest in all forms of relief via cannabis shows a real cultural change in attitudes, one that has few analogues in other aspects of American politics and life.

But what other uses do seniors find for CBD and CBD products?

Many seniors and others who suffer from arthritis use CBD for the symptoms from that condition. Studies have shown that CBD has promise in easing both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. [3]

With the results of this most recent study, it’s no wonder seniors have a lot to gain from CBD, and never was there a more relevant time to try it out.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic, many older people with preexisting conditions are anxious about possibly becoming infected.

Since so many love to use CBD to ease anxiety anyway, this might be the perfect occasion for seniors to try hemp oil for the first time.
