You’re Getting Older and Want to Continue Working, Consider Using Pot

Older Americans are either choosing or are being forced to work past retirement age due to their financial situation. If you’re one of them or you know someone who this applies to, you or this person can now be helped to work longer by using medical marijuana.

Researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health did a survey of over 100,000 people over the age of 50. They found, in states where medical marijuana is legal, that the survey respondents who were using marijuana reported a nearly 5% decrease in reported pain levels and a 6.6 increase in feelings of wellness.

I’ve recently been using a CBD cream topically on a groin pull and I’ve been very impressed with the cream’s ability to quickly reduce or even stop the pain. I tried one cream that had 500 mg of CBD and it worked to a degree. When I switched to a cream having 1,000 mg of CBD cream it made a major difference in reducing my pain level.

So…if you’re in a state where it’s legal, experiment with CBD cream or oil to reduce your pain. If you’re in a state where medical marijuana is legal, you can explore even further. You may be pleasantly surprised with the reduction in pain you’ll experience. And if you want to or need to work longer, it will be a piece of cake (or at least a cookie) to be able to do that.
