How Older Adults Can Keep CBD Costs Affordable

February 4, 2020 16:00:00

For a lot of people, aging isn’t always a bed of roses. While you get to see your progeny grow and flourish, and get the chance to gain all sorts of wisdom, time isn’t kind on the human body. We have to accept that as we get older, things don’t work as efficiently as they used to.

There’s a number of drugs out there that can improve an older person’s quality of life, but ironically, most of these drugs come at a steep price, and that’s the risk addiction.

Cannabidiol, a chemical produced by the cannabis plant, is making a name for itself as one of the most versatile natural medicines on the market. There’s little scientific evidence to prove this, and most of the evidence in its favor is anecdotal, but thousands of users swear by CBD, saying it’s effective against a number of conditions, ranging from anxiety and chronic pain to high blood pressure and insomnia.

CBD products offer a natural, addiction-free alternative to pharmaceuticals, but a lot of them are way too pricey, especially for a senior living on a fixed income. Here are a few ways older folks can access CBD products without having to pay big bucks;

Sunsoil produces CBD oil drops, soft gels and capsules from USDA-certified organic hemp, and it is running a month-long program dubbed ‘For the People February,’ offering its entire portfolio 50% off for the entire month. Co-founders Alejandro Bergad and Jacob Goldstein discovered a cost-effective way to make high-quality CBD, and they are passing on the cost savings to the consumers.

According to Bergad, the February offer will allow those who need CBD to stock up, and also make it affordable for those who don’t have the resources to try it.

Lazarus Naturals is another company that believes quality should not be dependent on price. The firm produces CBD tinctures, capsules, topicals, and pet products, with their high potency full spectrum CBD tinctures selling at $32 for 25 servings of 50mg CBD. On top of that, Lazarus Naturals started an Assistance Program to help more people access CBD products through sizable discounts.

“There’s so much interest in CBD and confusion about the category, we don’t want price to be a barrier for people to experience the power of our products. We offer an Assistance Program that goes beyond the typical senior discount to offer veterans or individuals with a disability or low income a 60% discount,” says Nicki Briggs, Chief Marketing Officer at Lazarus Naturals.

As you can see, you don’t have to break the bank to get your daily dose of CBD. High quality and affordable CBD products are in plenty, just make sure you do your research. And as always, consult a doctor before using cannabidiol infused products, especially if you’re on any other drugs.

Experts are of the opinion that the vast majority of CBD product makers, such as Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP), are doing everything possible to optimize their operations so that no potential consumer is left out due to affordability issues.
