Who Uses CBD?

Athletes, Millennials, Gen-xers, Women, Men, Seniors and Regular folks like us.

Moms, Dads, Weekend Athletes, Veterans, Seniors, Exercise Enthusiasts, Health Care Professionals, Pet Owners, or anyone who needs relief from stress, pain, anxiety in a pure natural way to help them balance their life.

People use CBD to support their overall well being in many ways. Some may need help with really specific issues. Others are supporting their overall well-being. Honestly, we learn a ton about how and why people use CBD from our customers.


As you might expect studies show younger people are more aware of CBD products and consequently use more of them.

  • Millenials 18-29             20% say they have used CBD products
  • Gen- Xers                25-39             16% admit having used CBD oils  
  • Gen- Yers                40-54             11% have used some form of CBD
  • Boomers   55+                 8% have used but most are unaware of the benefit

Of the CBD users polled 47% were women and 44% were men. Not really sure what that says except that maybe women are a little more progressive.


Athletes have begun to see the benefits or CBD products when dealing with pain and other consequences of their chosen profession. It is rumored that in the past trainers gave out prescription pain killers like they were candy. Many of those players are now having health problems that they believe originated with poor pain management. According to a Men’s Health article of March 29, 2019 “Dozens of current and former pro athletes have publicly come out in support of further clinical testing and full access to CBD. Some have founded organizations like Athletes for Care, which offers resources for athletes, urges further research, and promotes CBD use. Others have gone so far as to invest or partner in CBD or marijuana companies”

According to an article in the Health section of the Washington Post on December 7, 2019 The retired and active big-name professionals who have declared their use of, or are involved with developing or promoting a business around cannabis, include former NFL players, mixed martial arts fighters, golfers, Olympic athletes, surfers and hockey players. Among them are retired NHL players Riley Cote and Ryan VandenBussche; retired NFL players Steve SmithTiki Barber and Rob Gronkowski; retired NBA players John Salley, Kenyon Martin and Matt Barnes; Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones and golfer Bubba Watson. The list continues to grow as the stigma and rules surrounding cannabis fall away.


You can do your own research online to see what challenges people are saying CBD helps them, their parents, their children or even their pets overcome. This is what it’s all about for us! We love reading positive stories about the impact our products have on people’s everyday lives. We get them from veterans, first responders, office workers, athletes, seniors, parents, and everybody else.

While we believe CBD can support wellness in many ways, you should understand this is still a young industry. Encouraging research about CBD is emerging all the time, and we can’t wait to learn more in the future.
