CBD Oil and Overall Health


Cannabidiol (CBD) is being explored and used for the treatment of patients suffering from stroke and diabetes. But, in addition, CBD may also be able to provide daily protection from high blood pressure.


Studies have shown that the endocannabinoid system (the system within the human body that acts very much like the cannabinoid system in plants to keep the cannabis plant healthy) is in large part responsible for the regulation of hypertension. This is a novel area of high blood pressure research. Cannabidiol has been known to regulate the activity of the endocannabinoid anandamide, which has been linked to the mediation of hypertension and other vasodilator activities.


What much of the current cardiovascular research has in common, is that it mainly explores the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities of CBD. These are perhaps two of the most thoroughly explored areas of CBD research. In many cases, even outside of heart health, CBD is well known for its ability to reduce oxidative stress and target inflammation. If CBD is known for nothing else, it is known for its anti-inflammatory capabilities.


While the majority of CBD research remains within the confines of the laboratory, the preliminary evidence overwhelmingly supports CBD as a safe treatment alternative. Especially do to the prevalence of heart disease, it’s important for all possible therapeutic options to be on the table. The more we discover about CBD, the more potential it demonstrates in the fight against cardiovascular deterioration.
