CBD a chemical found in cannabis helps patients with diabetes, Huntington’s disease, cancer and ulcerative colitis. New evidence also shows that CBD can benefit the cardiovascular system. CBD does this through its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. CBD relaxes arteries and improves blood flow to the heart. It also protects the blood vessels from damage caused by high blood sugar in diabetes.
Additionally, CBD reduces the size of heart attack damage in mice, and also helps animals deal better with stress. CBD also helps our white blood cells stay healthy and live longer. If you are a medical cannabis patient and your doctor has not spoken with you about the benefits of CBD, you’re not getting a real cannabis consultation and are missing information on the full value and healing potential of the plant.
