It’s never easy to watch the people you love get older, especially when their aging process comes with side effects like chronic pain, sleepless nights and other issues that keep your parents from enjoying life to the fullest. If you have a parent struggling with some of the more stressful aspects of the aging process, CBD oil can be a safe and natural option for relief. Anne, a 72-year-old mother of two and a grandmother of 5, describes the CBD tincture she uses as "youth in a bottle." The first thing your parents will probably want to know about CBD is that it’s not like marijuana, and will not get them high. Sure, CBD is a cannabinoid found in plants classified as cannabis, but it's very different from THC, which is the psychoactive ingredient found in pot, or marijuana, also a cannabis plant. CBD derived from industrial hemp (not marijuana) contains no THC and can offer relief from many symptoms of aging, without the potentially harmful effects of THC. It's really important that your parents understand this, and it might take a little convincing on your part. Unless your parents were of a certain group who came of age in the '60s and '70s, in which case they might be more than fine with all things cannabis-related. But once the reluctant hear about these five potential benefits of CBD oil, they might just wonder what took you didn't tell them about it sooner.
Age-related changes, such as declining health and increased discomfort or loneliness, can affect your parent’s mood. Depression happens. Stress and anxiety can also increase as aging adults find things more difficult than they used to be. CBD has the ability to combat anxiety and depression, and boost and regulate moods.
When considering the benefits of CBD oil for your parents, make sure you choose a full-spectrum formulation derived from the hemp plant. In addition, be certain that those hemp plants are organically grown, and contain no GMOs. All BioFit 360 products meet those standards.
