Senior citizens might just prove to be the fastest growing demographic for cannabis. Cannabinoids have been shown to influence bone cell proliferation and cell survival, as well as function thru a complex signaling and feedback network in the Endocannabinoid System the human body. 
       
The research is ongoing, but evidence suggests that modulation of this system could result in an increase in bone thickness by increasing osteoblast function and decreasing osteoclast formation. CBD has also been shown effective in reducing pain and inflammation associated with joint and nerve pain. In addition, cannabinoids are being studied as therapeutic agents to fight cancer – specifically bone cancer.
