07 Feb Why Should I Take CBD Supplements if I’m Young and Healthy? A Millennial’s Guide to Cannabidiol
When you feel good each day, it is hard to see the need to add a dietary supplement to your daily routine. This is often the case with millennials, the over 80 million strong generation linked with being born between about 1980 and 2000. Many millennials are currently at their physical peak, enjoying the benefits of being young, fit, and healthy – so why should they need to worry about taking a daily CBD supplement?
Why CBD Hemp Oil?
The cannabinoids in hemp oil – like those found in HempMeds CBD products – interact with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system. This system, native to all mammals, is responsible for regulating functions like mood, appetite, sleep, and even immune response and is uniquely engaged by the hemp plant.
Taking CBD hemp oil supplements stimulates the endocannabinoid system, which promotes homeostasis within the body. The balancing effects provided by vitalizing the endocannabinoid system allow the body to function at its optimal level.
Often associated with the aging and the elderly, dietary supplements like CBD hemp oil can help millennials receive the nutrients that may be insufficient in their current diets, including cannabinoids. More than just a source of cannabinoids, though, CBD hemp oil contains essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, protein, and terpenes and flavonoids. These nutrients add to the overall benefits received from including CBD hemp oil in your diet.
Although baby boomers, who will soon make up the costliest segment in U.S. healthcare, are already starting to see the benefits of a CBD supplement routine, it may be millennials who ultimately embrace the use of CBD hemp oil the most.
Millennials have proven to be more open to alternative therapies than previous generations. “One in four millennials uses alternative therapies rather than conventional options,” according to a recent Harris Poll. This included the use of herbs/herbal medicines/vitamins, a category in which CBD hemp oil supplements fall.
The use of these naturally occurring supplements represents a growing acceptance of all-natural, environmentally-sourced products over pharmaceuticals by younger generations. This approval of less-traditional options fits with the changing attitudes of millennials, especially when it comes to the use of cannabinoids.
Millennials between the ages of 18 and 35 in 2016 were more than twice as likely to support marijuana legalization measures as they were 10 years ago (71 percent today from 34 percent in 2006) and are substantially more likely to support the use of medical marijuana than other generations.
This openness to cannabis-based products makes millennials like you the perfect candidate for CBD hemp oil products. The balancing effects of CBD and the nutritional content of our hemp oil will help give your body what it needs to strive for peak performance each day.

Millennials are increasingly busy as a generation. Depending on what years you use to define the generation, nearly all millennials are now college-aged or older.
