CBD for Seniors

In our industry, reports show a 8.8 million participation rate drop in 2020. Of that, 17%, or 1.5 million dropped out due to physical limitations. Research also shows that many of the outdoorsmen range from the ages of 45-60 years old. While that’s definitely not a senior, Revital Outdoors vision is to extend the average active years that outdoor enthusiasts pursue their passions. Therefore, in this article we’re going to discuss how CBD can benefit older adults. Moreover, identify Revital Outdoors products that may aid their various ailments. We’re also going to give some tips on how to converse with loved ones about introducing CBD into their routines. 

It’s inevitable that our loved ones will start dealing with more and more health issues as they age. It can be difficult to find remedies or get them to even take their medications. And for some, the side effects and mixing of medications can cause further complications. Therefore, CBD could be an effective alternative for seniors to consider. 

Why CBD? 

The industry has quickly gained popularity and expanded immensely in the last decade. Many individuals are interested in the potential benefits that CBD offers. Here are a couple of reasons why so many are exploring CBD:

It’s Non-Intoxicating

CBD doesn’t contain intoxicating effects. Additionally, it has not been proven to be addictive or lethal by overdose. Therefore, elderly will be able to ease their discomforts while using CBD, and not worry about dulling their cognition. 

CBD Helps with Sleep

Nearly 70 million Americans have reported some type of sleep related issue. And, sleep is extremely important to our bodies overall function. It’s important to have a healthy sleep cycle at any age. However, for seniors, they’re at a more vulnerable time in their lives. So, regulating sleep is very important. Plus, we have a specific Melatonin Softgel that’s designed for the sole purpose of being taken at night-time. 

Common Medical Concerns and How CBD Might Help:

Everyday Stresses

Each day we go through so many things, whether we’re realizing it or not. Each of those things causes some emotion in our body. Health problems, loss of friends and family, and isolation can cause intense depression for seniors.

Focus

It can be challenging for us to focus, but with everyone else, focusing can be extremely difficult with age. We recommend trying out our very popular 25mg Premium CBD Softgels. Our softgels are nano-emulsified, meaning that absorption is enhanced. This means that they’re one of the most effective softgels on the market. Plus, it’s easy to add these to a routine because they’re easy-to-take and contain zero aftertaste. They’re great to take on-the-go, too!

Skincare

Skin is the largest organ on the body, so it’s very important to take care of it. I’m sure you’re aware of the elasticity and other common properties to dwindle as we age. Then, we deal with wrinkles, dry and cracked skin, and more. It’s important to moisturize and protect your skin each day. That’s why we’ve protected the formula in our CBD Cream. It contains 250mg of CBD and is completely unscented. You’ll find that you feel more moisturized and protected beyond skin deep. 

Sleep

As we stated above, sleep problems contribute to nearly 70 million Americans. And as we all know, sleep is extremely vital to overall function. However, seniors really struggle with sleep. Our Melatonin Softgels with CBN for sleep can help soothe the mind and ease stress to support healthy sleep. 

How to talk CBD with Seniors:

It can be hard to approach the topic of CBD with loved ones. Especially when there’s blurred lines to some about the difference between THC and CBD. As we’ve stated, we’re a worker-friendly brand and our products contain 0.0% THC. We think that the most important thing is to differentiate between the two. Older individuals are typically not aware of how CBD is different. They might believe that CBD is intoxicating or contains a psychoactive compound. Explain that CBD is non intoxicating, and perhaps read various blogs in our section over CBD

We recommend educating yourself before educating others. Our blog offers easy access into tons of research and the science behind CBD. We feel that you’ll have a better grasp of CBD and the endocannabinoid system after you read some there. Additionally, you’ll be able to take this information to your healthcare professional. We always recommend speaking to health care professionals about adding CBD supplements to a daily routine.
