The good news is that talking to your parents about CBD isn’t as awkward as explaining why you didn’t accept their Facebook friend request.
But that doesn’t mean it’s an easy topic to broach, especially if your parents aren’t open to the idea of CBD and aren’t aware of what medical marijuana is!
We’d like to help and have come up with the perfect solution to introducing CBD to your parents. We’ll call it a joint effort!
Here’s what you can do:
Let’s Talk about the Benefits
CBD offers a variety of medical solutions. If your aging parents have problems with arthritis or chronic pain, let them know that CBD can help them find relief.
In fact, a study published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine concluded that CBD can help reduce inflammation because it targets alpha-3 (α3) glycine receptors in the body. These receptors are responsible for sending pain signals to the brain.
Furthermore, a study published by the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology concluded that CBD is rich in anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Moreover, statistics show that 1 in 8 women in the U.S. (that’s 12 percent) will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.
CBD is currently being researched for its effects on cancer patients, specifically breast cancer. One study points toward the benefits of CBD for cancer patients. It shows that there’s a high chance that CBD can prevent the growth of breast cancer and aggressive cancer cells in the body.
Research also indicates that CBD can help reduce the level of fatigue in insomniacs. It soothes the nerves and the mind, promoting a good night’s rest.
Explain that CBD is not Addictive
Most people have a problem with CBD because they believe that it’s addictive and can get one high. But this is not true.
While CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant, it’s different because it doesn’t contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), a chemical compound that’s responsible for the psychological effects of marijuana.
CBD doesn’t have any side-effects but offers a multitude of medical benefits. Therefore, we can conclude that CBD is beneficial for health in the long run.
These are just a few ways you can introduce your parents to CBD. Remember that knowledge is power!
