Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in both men and women.
A major risk factor for cardiovascular problems is high blood pressure and can lead to early death. Blood pressure medication is commonly used to stabilize blood pressure and prevent further cardiac damage. The only issue is that most blood pressure medications have numerous side effects and will only work for short term. This can lead to an increase dosage of medication or an addition of medication to one’s regimen. Since most blood pressure medications are filtered through the kidneys, this can ultimately cause other problems, such as decreased kidney function/failure. Hemp CBD oil has been shown to help aid in lowering blood pressure naturally. This process works by reducing the tension in the walls of blood vessels. CBD has been found to promote vasorelaxation to aid in reduction of blood pressure and helps improve circulation in the body. In turn, this may help people decrease the amount of medications they take to regulate their blood pressure, or even help get rid of their blood pressure medications completely.
Increased blood pressure has also been associated with stressful environmental conditions. In addition, CBD helps to decrease stress in the body, which will naturally lead to a reduction of blood pressure.
CBD has also shown to decrease inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked with various health conditions, especially hypertension and other cardiac disease. With CBD’s anti-inflammatory effects, CBD can help reduce blood pressure by reducing chronic inflammation in the body. CBD has also been shown to decrease inflammation in the myocardium (the muscle tissue surrounding the heart). These are just a few of the many benefits that CBD can have on cardiovascular health and help protect your heart.
CBD has emerged as a natural alternative to prescription medications for hypertension without any known side effects. Cannabidiol protects your brain and heart which can decrease risks for strokes and heart attacks.
