We should all be aware of a chief stereotype propagated about Cannabis consumers: They’re awfully mellow. This unlike many of the other stereotypes about Cannabis is quite positive, particularly when considering one’s health in the fast-paced and stressful world most of us find ourselves in. Also, unlike many of the common stereotypes about cannabis, this one studies are showing is physiologically accurate.
Blood Pressure Reduced During CBD Oil Study
Researchers from the University of Nottingham recently conducted a double blind study on a group of local healthy subjects. The results were published online in the Journal of Clinical Investigation to determine if there was indeed evidence that an oral ingestion of CBDs lowered participants blood pressure compared to the individuals who received a placebo.
The fine researchers from the University of Nottingham concluded:
“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 Oil.”
The participants who received the CBD treatment showed reduced blood pressure levels in response to stress, after exercise, while resting, and a reduction of stroke volume during in comparison to those receiving the placebo.
Beyond the conclusion that CBD treatments do demonstrate a reduction in blood pressure there are greater implications. According to the researchers:
“Further research is required to establish whether CBD has a role in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders.”
