Yes, because of its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, CBD has the potential to assist the cardiovascular system and specific heart conditions. Studies discuss these health properties, but more shockingly a U.S. Patent granted in 2003 already discovered this about CBD. It reads:
“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties….This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”
Many diseases, including those that affect the heart, stem from excess inflammation. In particular, inflammation can lead to high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, and stroke. So, taking in the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD can be very beneficial. Also, antioxidants from high-quality CBD oils can fight free radicals and can lower the risk of developing heart disease.
