At a NORML conference sometime back in the 1980s I met a guy named Jack Herer, who looked and sounded somewhat like an Old Testament Prophet.
"CBD & Hemp based products are popular among senior citizens for many reasons.
But the biggest reason by far is how effective it is for a variety of symptoms."

What is CBD?
CBD is a chemical compound that is naturally found within cannabis plants. While this compound will not make you high, it does have other useful benefits. Since cannabis was completely illegal until very recently, scientists are still working to understand the effects of using cannabis. CBD is only one out of dozens of different cannabinoids in cannabis, so other cannabinoids may have additional effects as well.
Because CBD (like all other cannabinoids) was made illegal like the rest of the cannabis plant by the DEA in America, researchers are still trying to gain a better understanding of how effective this drug is for various conditions. But one thing we do know is CBD is 100% safe, non-toxic naturally occurring substance that at best will alleviate some or all of the worst parts about being a senior citizen without the fear of a deadly overdose.
