We all know that aging is a natural part of life. At the same time, many of us fear and dread the thought of growing old — we worry about our mobility, our memory, and more. But it’s not just the cognitive wear and tear on our minds; for many of us, it’s also the increase in wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots that comes with getting older.
Because of this, there are countless anti-aging supplements and lotions, serums, and creams aimed at preserving our cognitive abilities and reducing or preventing signs of aging.
One potential hidden gem for anti-aging is cannabidiol (CBD oil), derived from the cannabis plant. In one experiment detailed in Nature Medicine journal, researchers discovered that THC improved the power of recollection in older mice, making them cognitively similar to younger mice. Cannabis can also help ease the various aches and pains or symptoms of illness we may struggle with as we get older.
As for your skin, CBD oil has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, meaning it can help counteract free radicals and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. It’s also great for dry skin, which we experience more as we age. At cannabisMD, we’ll bring you the latest research and personal stories about cannabis and CBD and their potential in the fight against aging.
