According to new data from Stirling CBD, the use of cannabinoid products by the baby boomer generation is on the rise. Boomers use of cannabinoids increased by 212% last year. Now, more than 50% of those who use the products are in the Baby Boomers and Generation X demographics.

Stirling CBD, based in North Carolina, is a supplier of natural CBD products derived from organic hemp, without any psychoactive components. CBD, short for cannabidiol, has become a popular organic remedy for joint pain, insomnia and nervous system diseases, common ailments in people in their late 40s or older.

CBD popular among older generations

“The increased use of CBD products among the older generations, those born in the XNUMXs and XNUMXs, demonstrates this generation's confidence in CBD products,” said Stirling CEO Joe Kryszack. “The generation that smoked cannabis decades ago now uses CBD to relieve ailments and live long, pain-free lives.”
According to the company, CBD has risen in popularity largely because of the variety of health benefits it claims to provide, including:

  • Improved coordination
  • Relief of occasional pain
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved brain function

1 in 3 Americans uses CBD

As awareness of the benefits of CBD has increased, so has the use of the product by Americans:

  • 33% of US adults have used CBD on one or more occasions. (SingleCare, 2020)
  • 64% of Americans are familiar with CBD and/or CBD products. (Gallup, 2019)
  • In the past 24 months, an estimated 64 million Americans have tried CBD. (Consumer Reports, 2019)
  • Of those who use CBD, 22% said it helped them supplement or replace prescription or over-the-counter medications. (Consumer Reports, 2019)

“People in the baby boom generation, born from 1946 to 1964, and generation X, born from 1965 to 1979, may have experience with cannabis, but are poorly aware of the distinction between cannabis and hemp,” Kryszak continued.
