CBD reduces blood pressure, and the cardiovascular response to stress
Epidemiological studies have shown a positive relationship between long-term stress and the development of cardiovascular disease. CBD (canabidiol) is currently the subject of much research because of its therapeutic potential. And according to the latest clinical trial data published online in the Journal of Clinical Investigation: Oral administration of CBD is positively associated with reduced blood pressure in healthy volunteers.
CBD in disorders of the cardiovascular system
Factors such as social isolation, socio-economic status, depression, stressful life and work life, and anxiety are associated with increased risk of development and accelerated progression of cardiovascular disease. Current European directives on the prevention of cardiovascular disease have emphasized the importance of tackling these factors. Thus, mental stress induces myocardial ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease.
Cannabinoids (CB) are compounds that bind to CBD receptors. They are structurally similar to compounds that bind to CB receptors. The other major phytocanabinoid is cannabidiol (CBD), which has no psychoactive properties. In addition, it has been shown that canabidiol has anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, antioxidant, anxiolytic, anti-nausea and antipsychotic properties. We even find him to be therapeutic in cases of stroke. A number of pre-clinical studies have also shown beneficial effects of CBD in a range of disorders of the cardiovascular system.
La researchers from the University of Nottingham evaluated the effects of a single oral dose of 600 mg CBD extract compared to placebo in nine male subjects. They concluded that administration of cannabidiol reduces systolic blood pressure and vascular volume. That is, the amount of blood pumped by the left ventricle of the heart into a contraction. An increased heart rate was observed following the administration of CBD. But no adverse events were reported by participants during or after the study sessions. The authors concluded:
"Our data shows that a single dose of CBD reduces resting blood pressure. And in the response of blood pressure to stress, especially cold stress. "-" This may reflect the anxiolytic and analgesic effects of CBD, as well as any potential direct cardiovascular effects ... Further research is also required to determine if CBD has a role in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders such as hypertension. "
Animal studies also show that canabidiol modulates the cardiovascular response to stress. Thus, CBD decreases the cardiovascular response to stress after administration of a single dose of CBD (600 mg). This with the assumption that blood pressure would be reduced by CBD. Thus, cannabis has multiple desirable effects on the cardiovascular system.
