According to the American Journal of Physiology (AJP), CBD was shown to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which helps reduce the negative impact on the inner linings of our blood vessel walls that can be caused by high blood sugar in our circulatory system (Rajesh, 2007).
CBD was also shown to lower the chance of diabetes in mice and also protect the blood retinal barrier in the eyes, which is a common complication seen in diabetics (Rajesh, 2007). The study also concluded that CBD helps improve vascular permeability and was stated to have “…therapeutic benefits against diabetic complications and atherosclerosis” (plaque build-up seen in high cholesterol) (Rajesh, 2007).
CBD was also shown to help to protect the inner linings of our blood vessels to protect against oxidation that is commonly caused by plaque deposit build up (Rajesh, 2007).
Lastly, the punlished medical journal stated that CBD was an approved and effective treatment for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) because of the anti-inflmmatory, anti-spacitiy, and pain controlling properties (Rajesh, 2007).
Is it just me or are the therapeutic uses of CBD almost endless?
