The Benefits of CBD for Older Adults

Having trouble falling asleep, or staying rested throughout the night? Or are you struggling with the aches and pains of aging and inflammation?

Not to worry. At Hashtag, we’ve got you covered. We specialize in partnering with our guests to learn about your needs, while providing you with our expert knowledge of the cannabis plant and all the ways that using cannabis (or marijuana) can help improve your daily life.

You probably know that the main ingredient in marijuana, THC, can make you feel high. But there’s so much more to the cannabis plant. Another part of marijuana is called cannabidiol, or CBD for short, and CBD can help relax your body, while alleviating inflammation and anxiety, without making you feel high.

What Can CBD Do for Me?

CBD can play an important role in your life by helping your body combat discomfort so you can get the rest your body craves (without the intoxicating effects of THC).

According to Project CBD1, a website where scientists summarize the current research on medical uses of cannabis and CBD in particular,

in the United States, approximately 70 million people suffer from insomnia, insufficient sleep or another sleep disorder … several patients with sleep issues report that ingesting a CBD-rich tincture or extract a few hours before bedtime has a balancing effect that facilitates a good night’s sleep.

Whether you’re looking to combat discomfort or just get a better night’s sleep, our dedicated team is ready and eager to learn more about your needs so they can find the CBD product that is right for you.

You can find CBD oil in a huge variety of products sold at Hashtag, such as

  • tinctures and extracts that can blend into any liquid;
  • precisely-dosed CBD capsules that you swallow just like a supplement;
  • and topical creams and gels that you rub on to areas of stiffness.

Stop in to either store, and ask us how cannabis can help your body relax and recharge. Or click here to read more articles about CBD on our website.
