Improving heart health with CBD

Using CBD for Heart Health

CBD can be beneficial for heart health due to its proven anti-inflammatory properties. While it cannot cure conditions it can possibly prevent them from getting worse.

CBD may be beneficial in reducing the risk of stroke. A study from 2010 study showed that CBD may help prevent brain damage and may even help improve brain function post stroke.

A 2017 study showed that CBD can increase the blood flow during a stroke to help to prevent further damage to the brain. CBD has been proven to protect neurons and to increase the flow of blood to the brain.

CBD improves neuron health by supporting calcium ion handling which is necessary for nerves to carry the electric signal. This is essential for nerve health as they need to carry this signal to stay healthy.

The impact of CBD on heart disease

Research suggests CBD is effective in lowering blood pressure. High blood pressure is a precursor to many heart issues such as stroke, hypertension, and heart disease. In randomized clinical trials, 600mg of CBD daily was able to reduce resting blood pressure by 6mmHG. Lower blood pressure can help in prevent cardiovascular disease.

A Heart attack is caused when blood flow to the heart and other essential organs is cut off. CBD can be a preventative measure as it increases blood flow. Up to 1,000mg of CBD daily is well tolerated by most individuals. Clinical trials have demonstrated that side effects and risk factors are usually mild and may include dry mouth, excessive relaxation, and tiredness. If you have any side effects discontinue use immediately and consult a physician.

CBD oil dosage should always be gradually increased in individuals. We recommend starting with a dosage of 50mg – 100mg for a period of 7 days. This dosage may be just fine. If you feel you need to increase dosage do so gradually over a period of several weeks.

One of the most asked questions at our store, is how do I decide whether to take Broad Spectrum or Full Spectrum? We often recommend taking a Broad Spectrum tincture or gummy during the day as it contains 0% THC and then using a Full Spectrum product at night. This can be beneficial as you are getting the benefits of the Full Spectrum CBD at night which will help you sleep better and will give your body the opportunity to regenerate at night whilst you are sleeping. You will not have any of the negative side effects of drowsiness during the day.

When to use CBD for better health

Many people do not turn to CBD until they have an ailment or condition. CBD can be used as a preventative measure to ensure your health stays at its optimum. Exercise and diet are also contributing factors to many heart conditions and CBD cannot replace these factors. Eat well, exercise regularly and maintain a routine of taking CBD daily to ensure you stay healthy, particularly if you have a family history of heart conditions.

With a range of CBD products to choose from you are sure to find one you enjoy. Gummies and Tinctures are our two most popular sellers.
