Cannabis is taking the world by storm. As legalization marches across the country, people of all ages and backgrounds are discovering the benefits of this fantastic plant.

Perhaps one of the most exciting trends is that the over-50 crowd has embraced the benefits of this plant with open arms. Given cannabis’s ability to alleviate stress, encourage sleep, and ease aches and pains, it’s no wonder that seniors are giving cannabis a try.

What’s even better is that according to researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, new research has emerged revealing that cannabis is much safer for pain management in people over 65 than opioids. (Read more here.)

Unfortunately, getting started is often a barrier for new users or those dipping their toes back into the green-tinged waters for the first time in a while.

Cannabis today is much different than what might have been available 20 to 30 years ago. It’s important to seek out the right advice about which products to try.

After all, there’s a whole new world of treats to enjoy including topical creams and gels for aching joints, flavor-packed edibles, fast-acting tinctures, mellow vapes, and, of course, that age-old standby, flower. There’s truly something for everyone in this brave new world of cannabis.
