The 5 Best Cannabis Products for Seniors
One of the fastest growing segments of cannabis consumers is the seniors. As we get older, we often deal with stiff or sore joints, dry skin, difficulty going to sleep, issues with appetite, and more. Let’s not forget that cannabis is also good for finding some relaxation and enjoyment, too. With education at the forefront of our mission, Evergreen Market is happy to provide a few of our top recommended cannabis products for seniors.
Dragon Balm from Ceres
Dragon Balm is one of the cannabis industry’s most popular cannabis topicals. With its soothing, non-psychoactive effects, it’s on the must have list of cannabis products for seniors. It utilizes a blend of camphor oil, menthol, and cannabinoids to create a soothing experience that really penetrates the skin. Its effectiveness can be credited to Ceres’ nano-emulsion technology. Thanks to nano-emulsion, the core ingredients of Dragon Balm are broken down to such small particles that the bio-availability of the product is maximized. This means your body can make the most of everything this product has to offer.

Deep Sleep Tincture or Capsules from Fairwinds
Difficulty sleeping isn’t strictly a problem for seniors, but it is a common one. A bad night’s sleep can ruin your mood, increase your stress, make you irritable, and put you in a fog. Fairwinds Deep Sleep has captured a formula to help encourage sleep that lasts. By combining chamomile, cannabis, and a blend of other herbal extracts with an avocado oil base, Deep Sleep absorbs quickly and effectively. The best part is whether you take it in a capsule form or a faster acting liquid tincture, your good night’s sleep won’t leave you groggy the next day.

With minimal THC, the benefits of CBD are delivered without overwhelming psychoactive effects. The patch is applied to a venous area of the body (inside of the wrist is preferred) and absorbed by the skin.
