As people age, many will inherently develop different diseases or conditions and Stirling says that CBD has grown in popularity as an alternative to many over-the-counter medications.
Stirling is a California company founded in 2014 that specializes in CBD merchandise along with Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC products.
“The increased use of CBD products among the older generations, more specifically those born in the 1960s and 1970s, shows the reach and comfortability this generation has with CBD products,” said Joe Kryszak, CEO of Stirling CBD.
“While this generation experienced cannabis decades ago, they are now using CBD products to alleviate ailments and live a longer and potentially pain-free life.”
Benefits the cannabinoid can offer include better coordination, improved brain function and pain relief.
33 per cent of all American adults have used CBD at least once, according to the company.
