Although there are several studies out there that have looked at the therapeutic benefits of CBD, the FDA is still working to answer questions regarding the potential of CBD products.
For this reason, many who are interested in trying CBD still have concerns, and that’s okay! The elder population commonly has stigmas surrounding cannabis-related products. These stigmas can often be overcome by having a simple, meaningful conversation.
Federally legal CBD products are derived from hemp. While hemp and marijuana are both varieties of cannabis, they are two separate plants with different chemical makeups. The THC levels in the hemp plant are much less than in marijuana. A hemp plant must contain 0.3% THC or less, which is not enough to get you “high”. This small level of THC works with the other components of the hemp plant to create stronger therapeutic benefits, without the intoxicating effects of marijuana.
If THC is a concern, educate them on Broad-Spectrum and Isolate products that don’t contain any amount of THC.
