Seniors and the Benefits of CBD

As we continue to move forward in legalizing and demystifying cannabis, senior citizens are not only the fastest growing demographic for its use but more and more products are being tailored to the aging population. From 2013 to 2014, the number of cannabis users over the age of 55 increased by 53%, and is still on the rise today, according to CBS News (https://www.cbsnews.com/news/seniors-marijuana-use-fastest-growing-pot-users-prescriptions/). The identity of cannabis users is more widespread now than ever; as there is no longer a ‘stoner’ persona lingering over the therapeutic plant. 

But can premium CBD really improve the quality of life for senior citizens?

CBD, a compound found in the cannabis plant is non-psychoactive with anti-inflammatory properties that welcome the use of seniors without getting them high. From topical creams, ingestible tinctures, to oil vapors, CBD now offers more inviting deliverables while steering away from the traditional smoker or edible consumption. However, its not just about the variety of ways people can consume cannabis but also the variety of ailments that can be improved by, the responsible use of cannabis.

Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research examined a prospective study of nearly 3,000 patients over the age of 65 to research the therapeutic effects of cannabis. While poor sleep quality, pain management and cancer were the most notable reasons for cannabis use, they noted that after six months of treatment 93.7% reported improvement in their condition, in addition to reducing their use of prescription narcotics. Other results included a reduced pain level from a median of 8, on a scale 0-10, to a median of 4. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29398248) Many users mentioned that they actually prefer using cannabis over traditional prescription drugs and believe that it is just as effective, if not more, at managing pain. 

Reasons Why Seniors Should Use CBD :

Pain Management – Anti-inflammatory agents aid in joint therapy and reduce inflammation to relax muscles

Improved Cognitive Function – Promotes neurogenesis and fights against premature cell death caused by degenerative conditions

Reduce Prescription Medications – Cheaper, easier, and safer to use than many other prescription drugs

Bone Growth – Cannabinoids prevent age-related osteoporosis and promote bone health by regulating CB receptors within the bone marrow

Immune Support – Cannabis regulates the immune system to prevent tissue destruction

Digestive Health – CBD stimulates cells in the gastrointestinal lining 

Heart Health – Moderates cardiac dysfunction, oxidative stress that increases blood flow, scar tissue, and balances cell death signaling pathways in diabetic cardiomyopathy

“In an age where a physician often prescribes a different medication for each symptom, cannabis, as a comprehensive treatment that affects several symptoms, becomes a desirable therapeutic option,” as stated by researchers. The whole-body homeostasis effects of CBD and its interaction with the endocannabinoid system provides an natural treatment option without the side effects of prescription medications. While CBD can’t reverse side effects of aging, it can encourage a more active lifestyle for seniors while leading to an overall improved quality of life.

CBD Heart Health for Women

Women – this one’s for you.

Did you know the No. 1 leading cause of death in women is cardiovascular disease? The American Heart Association reported that heart disease causes 1 in 3 deaths each year for women, surpassing the number of deaths caused by breast cancer.

To modify risk factors and improve heart health, doctors often recommend an improvement in diet, increase exercise and avoid smoking.

So what role may CBD play in the cardiovascular system? Well, among many other benefits, its been known to reduce inflammation, relive anxiety, and help lower blood pressure, which are all associated with heart disease.

Here are just a few ways CBD may work to help your heart:
  • Suppresses irregular heartbeat often induced by exercise, stress, or anxiety, thus reducing heart damage caused by irregular blood flow.
  • Moderates cardiac dysfunction, oxidative stress that increases blood flow, scar tissue, and balances cell death signaling pathways in diabetic cardiomyopathy (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3579247/), which is a blood sugar disorder that directly affects heart health.
  • Protests the heart against drug-induced diseases of the heart muscle by aiding mitochondrial functions and biogenesis, which boosts energy and tissue repair and growth, respectively.

In a study conducted in 2013, the British Journal of Pharmacology reported that CBD, in rodents, had successfully reduced vascular tension, a condition that causes unnecessary strain in blood vessels.

What about the Endocannabinoid System? 

Our good friend, the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), contributes significantly to the overall condition of the heart. A recent study found that deficiencies in the ECS possibly contribute to chronic heart failure, and CBD is very useful in treating endocannabinoid deficiency. Further, the CB1 receptors regulate cardiovascular function in hypertension — high blood pressure.

Ladies, warning signs for heart troubles are difference from those in men. They can include:

  • Nausea
  • Unexplained Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Heavy Chest Pain
  • Radiating Pain
  • Breathlessness

It is important to be aware of all health risks and solutions.
