I don’t think CBD and hemp would have been legalized federally if it wasn’t for all of the wonderful senior citizens who embraced it in their lives.
My grandparents are great examples, because they both use CBD skin creams on their achy joints every morning and evening. They swear by the pain relieving effects of their hemp salves. It’s a lot of money, but they’re happy to pay the cost if it means a drastic reduction in their chronic pain. I don’t blame them, but I have tried to steer them in the direction of better CBD products at better price points, but they’re insistent on getting their CBD “locally” from their pharmacist who overcharges with all of his hemp products. These CBD products are all becoming so popular that I heard some of our local nursing homes are now administering topical CBD products to some of their residents with severe joint and muscle pain. These skin creams and lotions are filled with lots of CBD and other cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, and CBN. By targeting the pain directly in its location in the body, you can often experience more satisfying pain relief in the short term and long term as well. I’m surprised that more doctors aren’t telling their patients to try CBD for their issues. I imagine that some of the people with chronic joint and muscle pain could get a lot of relief from the right kind of CBD products. You can even get patches with extended-release forms of the cannabinoid. There are seemingly endless options when it comes to the world of hemp and CBD products.
