CBD for seniors

Listen to this article:

Hemp products are not only intended for young people. Older people can also benefit from regular consumption of CBD. Also, if you are directly affected or are caring for an elderly person, we invite you to discover what CBD oil is, how it can help you and how to use it safely.

The benefits of CBD: known since the dawn of time

Ancient people discovered the importance of hemp seeds for health a long time ago. This is evidenced by the fact that it was one of the first plants cultivated by man. The Chinese have used it in their medicine for four thousand years. In India, we find mentions of the plant in texts dating back more than three thousand years. The Assyrians and Tibetans also knew its benefits. Initially, hemp was used as an analgesic, sleeping pill, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant and also as an appetite stimulant. Modern research has made it possible to analyze the molecules contained in the plant and the benefits that can be obtained from them. CBD can therefore be useful for Seniors and patients who suffer from these ailments.

Pain, joint inflammation and lack of appetite unfortunately affect the daily lives of many seniors. Additionally, hemp-derived CBD oil also helps with insomnia . Studies show that cannabidiol applied a few hours before bed can have a soothing and calming effect. It is also worth mentioning that this chemical compound affects the secretion of dopamine. As a result, this can prolong sleep and allow for a more relaxed awakening.

CBD for Seniors and its role

CBD plays a regulatory role in the body, which is often seriously disrupted in seniors. Endocannabinoid system receptors are found throughout our body. Cannabinoids can bind to them and thus influence many bodily functions. They regulate, among other things, hormone secretion, hunger and satiety, mood, response to disease factors (inflammation), etc. Our body produces cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) itself. They can also be easily absorbed in the form of food supplements (phytocannabinoids). The most important cannabinoids in the latter group come from hemp, such as CBD.

CBD oil is ideal for seniors

CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from hemp, meaning it does not alter the mind. It is completely legal, recommended and generally used in the form of CBD oil. CBD oil is consumed as a food supplement, which helps regulate a number of bodily activities. Please note that this is a substance that does not present any risk. There are practically no contraindications to its use and almost no side effects. These are the reasons why cannabidiol can be offered to our elders, to act on different pathologies.

CBD will particularly help seniors suffering from the following ailments:


  • Mental health problems such as depression and anxiety - these problems are increasingly being diagnosed as primary illnesses or accompanying other health problems of older adults. Cannabidiol can help because it has an anti-anxiety effect and improves mood .


  • Lack of appetite - Appetite disorders are quite common among the elderly, and not eating enough has very negative effects, decreasing the vital energy and immunity of the elderly person.

CBD oil stimulates the appetite and thus promotes sufficient calorie intake throughout the day.


  • Sleep problems - these unfortunately also worsen with age, and CBD oil helps seniors regulate the daytime rhythm.


  • Rheumatic pain and aches - which CBD alleviates and can even eliminate by relaxing muscles, countering muscle spasms and acting as an anti-inflammatory to relieve joints.


  • Chronic inflammatory conditions - including those associated with, for example, atherosclerosis, in which we are dealing with inflammation of the blood vessels.

Dosage of CBD oil

Taking CBD oil is not risky, its effects are felt over time. It is therefore necessary to favor regular doses and observe the reactions on the body. We advise starting with low doses and concentrations, for example 2 to 3 drops of 5% CBD oil 3 to 4 times a day. Gradually and if necessary, you can increase both the concentration and quantity of the supplemented oil.

The oil will be most effective if the person consumes it 30 minutes before a meal, dropping it under the tongue without swallowing it for one to two minutes. In case a person is very disturbed by this form of application, CBD oil can also be added to a meal, preferably by mixing it with another fat, which promotes its action on the body.
