Younger generations have a reputation for using CBD, but now, the tide may be turning. That is, baby boomers and the silent generation, which includes people born from 1928 to 1964 may be starting to use CBD. For instance, research is showing that those who are over the age of 55 are more likely to use CBD than those who are any 12-17 years old.
This leads many to wonder what accounts for the shift and at this point, there does not seem to be a conclusive reason. Some surmise that the shift is occurring because of the free time that older individuals have and the diminishing constraints that they are experiencing concerning CBD use. Others suggest that there is a decrease in interest for traditional medicine. And finally, there are those that believe that the legalization of CBD has made it easier for users to give it a try and to do so without having to worry about repercussions.
Moreover, CBD may be accessible to older generations as well. For example, those who live in Orange County, California can use the “Cannabus” to be shuttled to and from Bud and Bloom, a CBD dispensary. Many older generations that user CBD may enjoy from the potential health benefits of CBD as well. For instance, they may experience a decrease in pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, and the like.
