As people age, many will inherently develop different diseases or conditions and Stirling says 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 products as well as Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC products.
“The increased use of CBD products among older generations, especially those born in the 1960s and 1970s, shows this generation’s reach and comfort with CBD products,” said Joe Kryszak, CEO of Stirling CBD.
“While this generation experienced cannabis decades ago, they are now using CBD products to relieve ailments and live longer, potentially pain-free lives.”
The benefits the cannabinoid may provide include better coordination, improved brain function, and pain relief.
33% of all American adults have used CBD at least once, according to the company.
