A few studies have shown some benefits for conditions that commonly affect older adults.
CBD is currently thought to reduce inflammation in the body. This is very important for older adults because inflammation tends to increase as we age and it has been shown to be the underlying factor of a lot of health issues – everything from joint pain and poor memory to more serious conditions like cancer and diabetes.
For example, this study shows that Cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids, may interfere with the body’s release of cytokine, which are proteins that are involved in acute and chronic inflammation.
CBD is also thought to help modulate the immune system so that it keeps running smoothly (study). This is important in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic which is still resulting in thousands of new cases a day.
A stronger immune system will help seniors not only better resist the Coronavirus but also recover sooner if they do catch it!
