CBD is a product that has grown in great popularity in recent years. There are so many different options to choose from. As a family caregiver, I have heard that there are many benefits of CBD for myself and the older adult in my life but we have questions- What are those benefits? How is it helpful? Where do I learn more about CBD?

Today, we have the privilege of being able to speak with Nancy Solie, founder and CEO of PureLee Farms, a full spectrum, CBD pure farm that brings whole plant products to the consumer. They are crafted in small batches with fine ingredients. PureLee Farms implements extensive third-party testing and organic practices. When wanting to share with older adults and family caregivers about CBD- PureLee Farms is the first company I thought of. Their integrity, family story, and commitment to purity provides us with valuable products and information.

We talk all about:

  • What is CBD? What is the difference between CBD, hemp, and THC? Is it legal?
  • What are cannabinoids? What is the endocannabinoid system? How does CBD provide balance in our body?
  • Can older adults and family caregivers implement CBD to help with pain, anxiety, sundowning, and sleep? Has there been any research to substantiate these findings? And what has your experience been when working with older adults and CBD?
  • What are all of those benefits that CBD can offer?
  • What is the entourage effect?
  • Does it matter what time of day you take CBD? Do you take it every day? How much do you take? Would you recommend the dosage be lower or different for older adults? (All the questions!)
  • For those that haven’t brought CBD into their life- what’s a good place to start, what would you recommend?
  • What can families looks for when purchasing CBD, it’s there a benchmark of quality and how can they identify that? How can people distinguish between a fake product with low potency and a high-quality product?
  • We talk all things CBD!
