As we grow older, our bodies can start to feel the toll of so many years of work and play. It takes longer for us to heal and more work in order to maintain. Aging well requires us to treat our bodies with respect. Whether that means setting boundaries to prevent injury, eating well, or making sure we get the right amount of activity and rest in each day to stay strong, our choices can be either the best assets or the greatest liabilities to our overall health.
Many of us face issues like low energy levels, weaker bones, insufficient sleep, dwindling appetite, glaucoma, arthritis and joint pain. Prescriptions, diet, and activity can address some of these issues to varying degrees, but did you know that there’s something more you can do to set your body up for success?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in hemp that can be extracted and isolated. It is often regarded as the most healing element in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive effects. It allows you to remain fully functional while assisting in relief from acute and chronic pain common in aging adults.
CBD is known to help maintain a healthy state of being, assist in providing pain relief, healing fractures, reducing internal eye pressure, and stimulating appetite. For those that may be struggling with energy loss or sleep deprivation, CBD users have reported improved energy levels along with better length and quality of sleep all without side effects.
It’s also important to note that CBD is made for our bodies. We’re designed to receive this natural supplement that can be delivered as a topical, ingestible, inhalable, and sublingual. Some of our lines have pharmacist formulations meaning that the same people you’d trust to mix your prescriptions are formulating some of the CBD products provided here at Terrapin Select.
CBD is non-addictive, has no known side effects, and does not require a prescription. Topical and sublingual applications are often considered the best delivery methods for those on medications. However, you should always consult with your doctor before taking a new supplement.
