Things change as you age, things that you never considered when you were young and just getting started. You seemed immortal then and, when you saw your grandparents and others past the age of 70 or so, you told yourself you would never be like that. But you will. We all will. There are some things that help with the discomfiture of aging and among the best is CBD Oil. Let’s take a look at why seniors love CBD.

What happens with Aging

You see, things change as you get older. That is a crass understatement. Almost everything changes when you get older. Things ache that that you didn’t even know you had. Your skin gets thinner and your body gets wider. Bones get brittle and you become a little wobbly on your feet—not a good combination. Your libido becomes libidGO and your skin develops spots and wrinkles. Muscles get flabby and joints get stiff while eyes grow dim and hearing loses its acuity. Some shrink a few inches in height and others get bent over like the weight of the world settled permanently on their backs. Some get confused and forgetful and spend lots of time looking for glasses that they pushed up to their head or keys that they put somewhere way out of sight. This is only a snapshot and not the whole picture, but it gives you an idea of why we need a little extra help now and then. Let’s see what CBD has to offer and you will discover why senior citizens love CBD.


Because CBD is an oil extract it can be added to gels, creams, tinctures and edible products making it easy to ingest or administer to the body parts that hurt or ache. In many cases, CBD can replace addictive prescription drugs such as opioids.  Studies show that it can be helpful in the following ways:

  • Reduces Anxiety
  • Pain Relief
  • Neuroprotective
  • Reduces the risk of artery blockage
  • Soothing effects
  • Fights glaucoma
  • Helps with insomnia and sleep issues
  • Stimulates appetite
  • Can act as an alternative to prescription medications

Many seniors are not willing to try marijuana because they feel they already have lost their edge and don’t want to lose more by ingesting THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. But CBD has does not contain THC, making it safe to use for relief knowing it won’t impair thinking and reasoning ability.  For more on the science behind CBD, click here.

Finding a high-quality CBD

Because there are so many suppliers of CBD, seniors want to know where they can find products they can trust to be of high quality. Many also have a concern for price. So where do they look?

There are a number of reliable companies, but my personal favorite is Cannafyl. I use it and I give it to our dogs, Dizzy and Smarty. We’re all the better for it.  I know a number of seniors who use it regularly and pet owners who swear by it.

It’s a great product from a reliable company and really does what it says it does. For these reasons and many more senior citizens love CBD. But you don’t have to be old to use it. You just need to want you or your pet to feel better.
