CBD research continues to uncover incredible correlations between cannabinoids and health and wellness. If you’re curious what the best CBD oil for high blood pressure is, we’ve got great information for you.
What is high blood pressure?
According to the American Heart Association:
High blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) is when your blood pressure, the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels, is consistently too high.https://www.heart.org/en/health-topics/high-blood-pressure/the-facts-about-high-blood-pressure/what-is-high-blood-pressure
What does the research show?
A 2017 study shows a positive correlation between CBD and blood pressure.
In a preliminary study on blood pressure response to CBD, participants showed a noted improvement in blood pressure after taking 600 mg of CBD.
According to the authors Khalid A. Jadoon, Garry D. Tan, and Saoirse E. O’Sullivan:
This data shows that acute administration of CBD reduces resting BP and the BP increase to stress in humans, associated with increased HR. These hemodynamic changes should be considered for people taking CBD. Further research is required to establish whether CBD has a role in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5470879/
How does CBD reduce high blood pressure?
So when you use CBD, your endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate most of your body functions, improves.
Lower stress, lower anxiety, and better sleep all contribute to improved blood pressure, which means CBD tackles both the actual blood pressure AND contributing factors.
Is CBD safe for blood pressure?
Always consult a doctor before taking any type of medication, especially if you’re already using another medication.
CBD is generally considered safe (and is also legal), so the biggest thing to watch for is how your body reacts to CBD.
Not all CBD is created equally
Since CBD isn’t federally regulated, we rely on independent testing to ensure the CBD we sell in our shop actually contains CBD. To remain compliant with the Farm Bill, we also independently test our products to ensure they contain less than .3% THC.
Wherever you buy your CBD, make sure you’re purchasing a high-quality product that is independently tested.
How much CBD should I take for high blood pressure?
All CBD dosing starts small and works up. Start with a minimum dose of a CBD tincture and work up over a few weeks until you start seeing results.
