Bringing Generations Together with CBD


If there’s one thing we can say about the CBD industry, it’s that it doesn’t discriminate when it comes to age.  By now, a lot of studies about hemp have been conducted by clinical scientists so that we can develop a deeper understanding of its unique effects.  These studies have been performed on people of all ages and have shown us that hemp may be useful for everything from common pediatric issues to conditions that affect the elderly.

Therefore, we can agree that CBD brings generations together in ways that few markets do.  CBD has become quite trendy over the last few years, and usually, market trends tend to target one specific demographic.  Also, when we think about it, it’s pretty remarkable that hemp has reached such a diverse audience in terms of age.

CBD: An Industry Enjoyed by People of All Ages

If you haven’t noticed, the CBD industry is impacting people of all ages.  For one thing, the FDA has approved its first CBD drug recently, which was developed for children who suffer from epilepsy.  Additionally, many studies have been done to show CBD’s effects on pediatric ailments.

Then, there are all of the studies done regarding CBD’s effects on things that commonly affect seniors, such as dementia.  As a result of these studies, more seniors are being encouraged to give CBD a try by their doctors.

And, of course, there are the generations in-between.  Millennials, Gen-Xers and other generations are finding ways to incorporate CBD into their daily routine.

Why is it that CBD Seems to Be Capable of Helping Out People of All Ages? 

Well, it has a lot to do with the body’s endocannabinoid system.  The endocannabinoid system is responsible for the maintenance of homeostasis, and it functions as a regulatory system for bodily processes that we depend on in order to maintain a sense of overall well-being.  The endocannabinoid system has cannabinoid receptors located throughout the body, and when these receptors get the cannabinoids that they need from the hemp plant, they can regulate processes that are crucial to our daily life.  The endocannabinoid system seems to be very efficient at sending cannabinoids to the areas of the body that need the most help, which can explain why CBD may be capable of addressing such highly specific issues within the body.

One thing that has been helping the CBD industry immensely is the fact that the medical industry is finally taking hemp seriously.  This allows medical professionals to recommend CBD to their patients of all ages.  If it weren’t for this, CBD may have still remained a fairly niche market.  But, thanks to the enthusiasm of medical experts, we’ve watched CBD become mainstream in just a few short years, and this has made hemp more accessible to the general public than ever before.

Something else that has helped is the fact that the CBD industry is very diverse in terms of what it has to offer product-wise.  There are so many different ways to take CBD, and so many different applications, that people of all ages can find a product that suits their unique needs and preferences.  For instance, today, we can find CBD-infused anti-aging skincare products that appeal to one demographic, CBD-infused vape goods that appeal to another demographic entirely, and so on.  CBD is finding its way into so many of the products that we consider useful, which helps it reach generations who otherwise wouldn’t have thought to give hemp a try.

Because of this, CBD is almost definitely here to stay.  By now, a large portion of the American population has at least tried CBD at some time or another.  And so, people from all age groups have found ways in which hemp can be useful to them.

Driving Forces Behind the CBD Industry: A Multi-Generational Effort

When we talk about the multi-generational impact of CBD, we aren’t just talking about those who use hemp regularly.  We’re also talking about the driving forces behind the industry, such as the innovators who are developing new products with scientific expertise, the experienced medical scientists who are performing fascinating studies, and the social media influencers who use their platforms to advocate for hemp.  All generations are coming together to push the hemp industry forward, and each generation is bringing something unique to the table.  This means that for generations to come, we should expect to see the hemp industry continue to thrive as people of all ages have invested their time and effort into making CBD a massive success on the market.

We’re even seeing very young people becoming CBD advocates.  Many of the greatest hemp success stories involve people who are teenagers, or even children, who have been able to find relief with this natural compound.  As these advocates grow up, they’ll be able to continue to push for the industry in a way that can have positive repercussions for years to come.

CBD is an Industry Fueled by Many Generations

And, that’s one of the reasons why it’s been so successful.  It doesn’t cater to one particular age group, which means that people of all ages feel like they can benefit from what this plant has to offer.  Further, people from all generations are bringing something special to the industry, whether it be enthusiastic advocacy or years of experience working in clinical settings.
