A study published in April found that the number of Americans starting from age of 65, who use marijuana or enjoy other CBD products, expanded by 75% in recent years. Now, new research by the University of San Diego, California states, that more seniors use cannabis to treat the host. general eealth conditions.
According to the Journal of the American Geriatric Society research based on 568 patients surveyed, 15% had used cannabis in the past three years, with half of the users reporting that they used it regularly and mainly for medical purposes.
The researchers also found that 61% of cannabis patients started taking cannabis only after age 60.
Given the increased availability of CBD-only products, which are non-psychoactive cannabinoids as opposed to THC-containing products, the researchers said they expect more seniors to turn to cannabis or CBD-based supplies.
