Cannabis for Seniors

Cannabis for Seniors: A Scientific View of the Pros and Cons

The current generation of seniors who are 65 years or older grew up knowing that marijuana is the “devil’s drug.” So, it is surprising that seniors form the fastest-growing segment of cannabis adopters in the past few years. 

Of the seniors who are currently adopting marijuana for medicinal use, about 75% of them had never tried it before. This open-mindedness and willingness to try new remedies is driven by the massive pro-cannabis information campaigns that are going on. Most importantly, these seniors are attracted by the potential health benefits of medical marijuana. 

However, seniors should not rush to replace their pain killers with CBD unless they have enough information about cannabis and its health effects.
