How CBD Helps To Supports A Healthy Cardiovascular System 

By A&T Organic's posted February 19 2020


The best description of CBD and its potential role in supporting a healthy cardiovascular system can be found in the government patent on CBD.

The patent states that CBD is a potent antioxidant, that may be beneficial for those suffering ischemic events. Antioxidants are part of the “firemen” that put out the free radicals. 

I always like to point out the statistics, because either you or someone you know may be suffering from heart disease. This is the perfect opportunity to consider CBD, which may support a healthy heart

Once the sugars and free radicals damage your arterial walls, your body tries to fix the artery by laying down cholesterol. Eventually too much plaque/ cholesterol accumulates inside the artery walls narrowing the amount of space for blood flow. Plaques can also dislodge resulting in strokes and further interrupted blood flow.

This is the mechanism for a heart attack or stroke!! Blood flow to the heart is decreased, the heart no longer is receiving blood or oxygen, resulting in a heart attack. Check out the photo below demonstrating this. You could also imagine how this decreased arterial space results in high blood pressure. Your heart has to pump twice as hard to move the blood through the restricted vessel.

Every time you eat foods with a higher glycemic index rating or inflammatory foods you are risking increased free radical production. The glycemic index rates how quickly food will convert to sugar/ glucose. Food with a rating of 40 and above on the glycemic index will convert to sugar at a rapid rate.

These are rapidly digesting carbohydrates. This leaves you with tiny sugar and free radical particles floating around in your blood. The excess sugars/glucose are turned into triglycerides or fat. Triglycerides in excess of 100 MG/DL (seen on blood work) will increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. Recall though, these triglyceride fats came from carbohydrates and sugars.

The excess sugars will also begin to deposit on the walls of your arteries. Fried foods and low-quality fat sources such as omega 9’s, too much omega 6, vegetable oil, canola oil, and safflower oil, all oxidize very quickly when cooked. Unhealthy sources of fat are just as damaging to your arteries as sugar. Smoking, and lack of exercise also leads to free radical accumulation.

How are Free Radicals Produced?

Free radical accumulation depends heavily on lifestyle, nutrition, genetics, and supplementation. Let’s briefly review how food leads to free radical build up. Every time you eat food, the food will eventually turn into glucose/ sugar in your body.

When sugar combines with healthy proteins and fats, the sugar oxidizes the proteins and fats, which leads to free radical production. Free radicals will oxidize the lipids in your blood such as LDL. When LDL is damaged it begins sticking to the arterial walls. This causes arteriosclerosis.  

At the root of most cardiovascular disease is low level chronic inflammatory disease. Chronic inflammation leads to a buildup of tiny toxic compounds called free radicals. Free radicals are responsible for a portion of arterial damage.

Did you know many of the above values are not regularly screened? Try to work with your physician to obtain the above blood values, especially if you are at risk of cardiac disease. We always like to see a healthy HDL, low triglycerides, low CRP, and well controlled markers for sugar/ glucose levels. Heart disease is a silent killer, know where you stand.

Recall CBD impacts several areas and body systems. This is because our bodies have cannabinoid receptors all over. If you are less stressed, sleeping better, losing weight, and controlling blood sugars (all things CBD may help with) you are indirectly supporting your cardiovascular system.

CBD protects against vascular damage caused by a high glucose environment, inflammation or the induction of type 2 diabetes in animal models.2 Sugars damage blood vessels. CBD seems to reduce that damage.
