CBD & Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain is a major problem for many. Studies found at NCBI have shown that over half of older adults suffer from persistent pain. When put into nursing home situations the numbers grew drastically to 80%. 

The CDC shared that 50 million Americans – about 20% (even suggested up to 40%) of the population – have persistent and Chronic Pain. Of those 50 million, around 20 million of them suffer from what is known as high-impact chronic pain. This is the kind of pain that limits your life, from interpersonal relationships to physical outings and every day living activities.

Chronic Pain is linked to many physical and mental conditions that contribute to high medical and healthcare costs as well as drastic losses in productivity. This pain is also more prevalent amongst adults which are living within lower income and poverty stricken areas, may have lower educational aids and who have public health insurance. Underserved and in great need for compassion and care are the words that we use for these populations here at Dank Flavors.
