CBD, Blood Pressure, and Cardiovascular Health

What does the nation's medical research agency say about CBD and blood pressure?

According to the National Institute of Health, CBD was shown to benefit the cardiovascular system and improve cardiovascular health (Jadoon, Tan, O’Sullivan, 2017).

The study stated that cannabidiol (CBD, the non-psychoactive component in cannabis was shown to numerous benefits to cardiovascular health which included: reduced blood pressure in response to stress, considered a vasorelaxant (which also reduces blood pressure), reduces inflammation inside the arteries (antioxidant), reduce mental stress, preserves the lining of the tiny blood vessels in the eyes that affects many diabetics retina (vision issues associated with diabetes), and CBD before cardiac ischemia helps reduce infarct size (cardio protectant in the event of a heart attack) (Jadoon, Tan, O’Sullivan, 2017).

CBD is blowing science out of the water with the benefits this amazing plant has to offer. As new studies are funded and carried out, we can get a better understanding of this plant and the benefits it has to offer us through activation of our endocannabinoid system and receptors. The information has already been published in medical journals; I just help bring the information to you. I hope this helps everyone understand that this plant not only means no harm, it is non-intoxicating, and has SO much to offer in terms of health.
