CBD Oil for Seniors, Why Older Adults are Trying it

In the last few years, CBD has started a massive movement in health and wellness communities as individuals everywhere are finding natural relief for their health conditions. While CBD oil properties may help benefit people of every age, we will be discussing the population most affected by severe health conditions. Here are some of the amazing benefits that older adults and seniors are looking to CBD for. 

CBD Drug Test

CBD Oil for Baby Boomers Becoming More Main Stream

For many years in the United States, CBD was associated with marijuana, or cannabis use, and many senior citizens shied away from using CBD thinking there would be unwanted negative side effects. While CBD does come from  cannabis plants, the cannabis sativa plant has much lower THC content, and therefor does not produce a "high".

The is a greater amount of health information surrounding CBD for seniors than there was even a just a few short years ago. Senior citizens are becoming aware that CBD and THC are very different are compounds. They now have friends and family that now use CBD, and even see major sports and TV personalities endorsing the health benefits of how CBD can help with conditions commonly found in seniors.

CBD Products are Becoming Safer

Hemp derived CBD products are now legally sold in stores, dispensaries, and online, so long as the THC content is less than 0.3 percent. This was established in 2018 with the passing of the Farm Bill. While the FDA has not set definite regulation standards as of yet there are tools you can use to verify a quality product before taking CBD. The most important is the third party lab reports. These reports allow the consumer to verify the amount of CBD, THC, heavy metals and other compounds. The expiration date is now more readily available on cannabidiol CBD so seniors can make sure they are not buying an old or expired product.

Larger Variety of CBD Products

When CBD was first introduced it mainly came in CBD oil tincture form. Many baby boomers and older adults were not familiar with using CBD tinctures, no did they care for the taste. Today there are CBD capsules, which are taken just like any other every day vitamin or supplement. There are also a large amount of CBD topicals available today, from soothing CBD creams, to Roll Ons, or Lotions. These topical products may  be applied directly to a targeted area of discomfort.

Health Benefits of CBD for Seniors

While CBD is becoming popular in the mature community, it is important to note that at this time CBD is not FDA approved to treat, cure, diagnose, or prevent any disease. More CBD research is need to CBD use with specific medical conditions. It is important to consult with medical professionals before starting a CBD routine, especially if you are currently taking other prescription drugs.

CBD May Support a Restful Night’s Sleep

While sleep disorders like insomnia are a condition suffered by individuals of every age, they are very common for seniors. Experts suggest that this is caused by the shift in sleeping patterns as one gets older, along with the chemical imbalance caused by medical conditions and prescription medication. Sleep is the period of time that our body and central nervous system uses to flush out toxins and restore itself. Conditions that prevent sleep are extremely harmful for seniors and can cause further complications such as high blood pressure or chronic pain.

To combat their sleeping disorders, many seniors have turned to prescription sleep medications. Strong sleep medications have often left the consumer with the effects of feeling “hungover”  or lingering drowsiness which is anything but helpful. Big Pharma has tried to create solutions for the disruption of sleep-wake cycles, but traditional sleep aids and pills are infamous for their many hazardous and debilitating side effects. The effects of CBD do not induce that groggy feeling.

CBD, one of the major cannabidiols, offers a natural option for helping to restore your natural sleep cycle without the major risks that accompany strong sleep-inducing drugs. 

A great new CBD product is  Palm Organix CBD Softgels with Melatonin. The CBD capsules work in part with the body's own endocannabinoid system, the ECS, arguably the most important and useful biofeedback regulator in the human body, and also in the bodies of all mammals. The CBD and melatonin bind directly with the ECS cannabinoid receptors to help promote tranquility. The combination of melatonin and CBD could be an effective and powerful natural sleep aid.

Why seniors are using cbd oil

CBD may Support Improved Joint and Muscle Mobility

Joint pain is very common; around one in three older adults say that they’ve experienced some sort of joint pain, back pain, or arthritis etc. within the last month. There are a number of common conditions that can cause pain and inflammation in your joints. Pain management medications often have unwanted side effects, and some have been shown to be addicting.

CBD which has anti inflammatory properties is a natural supplement that may help reduce inflammation. Combining CBD with other ingredients such as Curcumin (found in herbal remedies in the form of tumeric) has an anti-inflammatory property that may help alleviate problems concerning pain and inflammation. Palm Organix has special CBD Softgels with Curcumin to help combat this inflammation, which may lead to healthier joints and muscle mobility in seniors.

CBD may Support Relaxed Mood

While everyone deals with mood swings, as people start to experience the major changes associated with getting older, like the decline of health, disabilities, or the loss of a loved one, these mood swings often become very intensified. Prolonged, they can lead to major health problems, with a chance of the senior person developing a mental illness when they feel that they are disconnected, neglected, isolated, or lonely.

Based on the findings from numerous studies, CBD may help support a relaxed mood. By interacting with the receptors involved in regulating our mood (such as the Serotonin and Adenosine receptors), CBD may help alleviate stress, calm the mind, and improve cognitive functions. These three things combined, greatly contribute to how your mind perceives its current situation, and may have a significant impact on your mood.

CBD Millennials VS CBD Baby Boomers

While CBD appeals to both of these populations the underlying conditions, and the preferred methods are quite different between these two groups.

  • Millennial CBD users tend to try CBD for the mental health benefits such as reducing stress, and promoting a calmer disposition. Millennials gravitate towards CBD oil tinctures and vapes
  • Older people, such as the baby boomer generation, tend to try CBD for pain relief, and will typically prefer CBD capsules and topicals.


Whether it be with your family, on the golf course, or just simply taking a walk, the potential benefits of CBD may be significantly noticeable. With the potential for increased sleep you may receive, your body will feel energized and ready to take on a new day. With improved joint and muscle function, you’ll be able to keep up with your grandkids, and stay on the golf green or tennis court longer. With all the areas CBD may help with, your loved ones will be pleasantly surprised to see you happy and healthy!
