Millions of people suffer from high blood pressure. Also known as hypertension, elevated blood pressure is linked to strokes and heart attacks. Congestive heart failure and kidney disease too.
But the answer is not pharmaceuticals. Too many side effects and not enough benefits.
We need to find the cause of high blood pressure and use evidence-based supplements instead of pharma whenever possible.
When your immune system doesn’t like a foreign invader in your body, it kicks into high gear attack mode. Inflammation is part of the attack.
But unchecked inflammation leads to illnesses like high blood pressure.
Here is an article about inflammation and high blood pressure.
To go after hypertension, I invite you to watch my video called Your Perfect Blood Pressure.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the main pharmacologically active phytocannabinoids of Cannabis sativa L. CBD is non-psychoactive (as opposed to THC also from Cannabis) but exerts a number of beneficial pharmacological effects, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. CBD is a compound containing twenty-one carbon atoms, with the formula C21H30O2. That’s it. Just carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
The chemistry and pharmacology of CBD, as well as various molecular targets, including cannabinoid receptors and other components of the endocannabinoid system with which it interacts, have been extensively studied.
CBD has a wide spectrum of biological activity, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, which is why its activity in the prevention and treatment of diseases whose development is associated with redox imbalance and inflammation has been tested.
I think so. Vitamin C and vitamin E have proven useful for hypertension, likely because they are antioxidants. Hypertension is linked to lower levels of glutathione, the body’s main antioxidant. Boosting glutathione is key (see our Daily Defense shake mix) for inflammation control and CBD can add to this protocol.
Oxidized lipids are a major risk factor for heart attack and stroke. These damaged lipids such as DHA and EPA undoubtedly affect blood pressure. CBD can help.
CBD can help chelate toxic metals, a function that should also benefit the person with hypertension.
CBD is great for blood pressure as evidenced in this study.
Leaky gut is a topic I discuss often. Leaky gut leads to leaky heart. And leaky heart leads to hypertension.
I think stimulating the endocannabinoid system can help resolve leaky gut, leaky heart and maybe even hypertension per this study.
An imbalance of the autonomic nervous system is undoubtedly a major factor in causation of hypertension. This part of the brain system has two parts: the sympathetic and parasympathetic. The former is the “fight or flight” branch. The latter is “rest and digest.”
By improving the balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic, we can expect the best heart function. CBD is proven to inhibit the sympathetic system, thus lowering heart rate and controlling blood pressure.
Stroke is a major concern of both physician and patient alike. And for good reason. No one wants to have a stroke. Yet hypertension is a major cause of stroke. This 6 page review discusses the therapeutic potential for CBD and stroke prevention.
The best way to fire those receptors is with cannabidiol (CBD). And if you are going to use CBD, use the best.
Where to find the best? Don’t worry, we did the research for you and found the best.
We use Biotics CBD oil. The best company finds the best source of CBD.
The results our patients (and The Wolfson’s personally) achieve are extraordinary.
