There’s a reason why Canada has legalized marijuana and more and more states in the USA, and countries around the world are following their lead. It’s not smoking the marijuana weed that is taking center stage. It’s CBD oil that is getting most of the attention. The health benefits of CBD oils for seniors fed up with prescription drugs is gaining a huge following.
And why not?
UNDERSTANDING CBD OIL
CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. CBD or cannabidiol is not-intoxicating and does not cause noticeable euphoric effects associated with tetrahydrocannabinol(THC).
CBD oil contains CBD (and often other active compounds) in a carrier oil. There are a number of forms of CBD oil, including soft gel capsules, tinctures, and under-the-tongue sprays. Some forms of CBD oil can also be applied directly to the skin, in the form of products like creams and salves. The concentration of CBD varies from product to product.
As more and more research begins to surface, it’s been found that CBD oil can play a major role in regulating memory, sleep, and mood. In addition, CBD oil plays a role in improving a host of health conditions that plague seniors especially. People who have used CBD oil claim it can treat a myriad of health issues that range from everyday ailments to chronic medical conditions.
These are some conditions where CBD oil treatment has shown promise.
(7)Loss of appetite and body weight
But that’s not all. I can say firsthand that CBD oil can promote a sounder sleep as I have been using it for over a year. The day I began using CBD oils for insomnia is the day I no longer had to use harsh sleeping pills like Zopiclone that come with a host of side effects.
It also reduces inflammation and pain, fights oxidative stress, improves heart health, supports weight loss, and best of all, protects against some forms of cancer.
There may be some side effects that come with using CBD oil. However, there are far more side-effects with prescription drugs and they are far more serious.
(2)Changes in appetite
(3)Changes in mood
(5)Drowsiness(hurrah..I can sleep again)
Everyone is different and some people(myself included) do not deal with any of these symptoms, but it only makes sense to make note of them.

This is why it’s important to run it past your health care provider. Hopefully, you can find one that specializes in the use of CBD and THC oil. Personally, I go to a clinic that deals specifically with these products. It’s great because they are much more knowledgeable than most family doctors when it comes to Cannabis products in general.
This means they can discuss your particular need and the minimum doses, to begin with, and how to slowly increase it until you find your optimum dosage for your particular needs. It was perfect for me and perhaps the main reason I have not dealt with any side effects.
You don’t need much in order to get results. All I take is between .03-ml and .04-ml (administered with a dropper under the tongue)an hour before bed to have the best sleep I have had in years with no horrific side effects that come with many prescription sleeping pills.
There was a study published in a journal called JCI Insight 2017, where researchers found that CBD may help prevent stress-related changes in blood pressure.
During the study, healthy male volunteers took a single dose of either CBD or a placebo. When compared to the subjects who were given a placebo, the volunteers treated with CBD had lower blood pressure before and after experiencing a stressful event.
It’s still very early days when it comes to determining the benefits of CBD oil, but early indications from users are that the results are pretty amazing on a number of levels.
SMALL DOSES FIRST
Because everyone reacts a bit differently to any type of medication, it’s always best, to begin with, small doses in order to determine if there are any side-effects. It’s very easy to take too much CBD oil because the amounts seem so small.
In other words, one milligram may not seem like much at all, but it’s quite a lot and not an amount anyone should really begin with. It’s important to start with a very low dose because in some cases it can take several hours after consumption to begin to feel the effects.
If after an hour or so a person new to CBD oil does not notice any effect they may be tempted to take more. Although there are no recorded deaths from any form of marijuana, taking too much could cause some above-mentioned side-effects.
As with any prescription drug, taking more CBD oil is not necessarily better. For instance, if .04 milligrams of CBD oil helps me sleep very well for five or six hours, taking more will not necessarily mean I will sleep longer.
FIND A TRUSTED SOURCE
Canadian seniors in most major cities in the country can most likely find a Cannabis store they can visit in order to purchase CBD oil. They also have access to Doctors who specialize in Cannabis products who can advise them on their best course of action if they are new to the product.
However, it’s different in the USA as Marijuana is not yet fully legalized, but there are online stores where it can be legally purchased.
EAZE WELLNESS legally ships CBD almost anywhere in the USA from a robust, carefully curated menu of national CBD brands. Their products come with detailed descriptions and access to education about CBD’s many uses. Basically, it’s a seamless experience.
They supply CBD in many forms.
TOPICAL CREAMS and BALMS are excellent for relief of aches and pains.
PATCHES can be placed where ever you feel pain. They are CBD infused and are used for temporary relief from a variety of aches and pains.
FACE and LIP TREATMENTS are available if moisturizers, creams, essences, and serums.
They also have TABLETS, CAPSULES, and CBD DROPS.
These are just some of their products. They have many more and even have CBD products for your pet.
When you visit EAZE WELLNESS, you will have access to live chat and you will be able to inquire about what treatment is best for you and your individual needs. For instance, do you need help with sleep? Are you experiencing arthritis pain? Do you need something that will help you relax?
Whatever your need, they are there to answer your question and help you choose the correct product.
If you have tried everything else, and are hoping to minimize the use of prescription drugs, it only makes sense to give CBD oils a try to see if it works for you. It’s not overly expensive, in fact, it’s a lot less than many prescription drugs and might just make a huge difference in the way you feel.
It’s a wise alternative to seek out health benefits of CBD oil for seniors who are fed up with prescription drugs.
