CBD and it's Effects on Blood Pressure

CBD Effects on Blood Pressure, and Hypertension

Many people may not know, but high blood pressure or also hypertension affects about 75 million Americans.

This figure represents about 32% of the adult population in the U.S. Unfortunately, its prevalence across the world shows no signs of easing up even as this life-threatening illness continues to affect more seniors and creates unhealthy communities.

Today, stress induced hypertension is common. Stress at workplaces and in schools are potential catalysts for high blood pressure. Past traumatizing events also expose a person to hypertension when the events are recalled.

High blood pressure increases the risks of developing heart conditions and even stroke. It is generally a symptomless illness that a person may live for years without ever detecting it. However, high blood pressure does not imply emotional tension even though such anxiety can lead to a temporary rise in blood pressure.

Luckily, some studies have shown that CBD is an effective remedy for high blood pressure. There is a growing pool of evidence suggesting that CBD restores normal heart rhythm and reduces the chances of experiencing a heart attack.

CBD and its effects on blood pressure explained.

The heart is arguably the most crucial organ in the human body. It is responsible for providing and regulating blood for the rest of the body. Veins transport oxygen-poor blood back to the heart for re-oxidation while arteries carry oxygen-rich blood and other nutrients away from the heart for re-distribution.

The pressure that is generated inside of the arteries plays a crucial role in the state of one’s overall health. Blood pressure that is either too high (common) or too low (less common) creates some pretty serious health risks that must be addressed immediately before other complications can develop.

Fortunately, it is possible to battle these potential blood pressure problems before they even develop. To do this, many patients have begun using cannabidiol (CBD) as a form of treatment in lieu of traditional medications. To learn how CBD can be used to effectively combat high blood pressure, it is important to first learn about the condition being treated.

A person with high blood pressure experiences tension in his or her arteries. Arteries are the blood vessels that convey blood throughout the body.

Normal blood pressure is below 120/80. Anything above 140/90 is considered high blood pressure.

The top number is called the systolic pressure while the bottom number is the diastolic pressure. A figure above the standard in any of the two exposes a person to other deleterious conditions such as eye damage, stroke, and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). All these conditions are referred to as ‘end organ damage’ since they happened after a long term exposure to high blood pressure. It is for that reason that frequent diagnosis is important to ensure that blood pressure is regulated and normalized to avoid any further complications.

Causes of Hypertension

There are two different types of high blood pressure.

  1. Primary Hypertension

This is the most common type of high blood pressure affecting about 90-95% of all hypertensive patients. This kind of hypertension has no direct cause, but can be linked to causing factors such as smoking, obesity, stress, alcohol consumption, sensitivity to salt, etc. Genes also play a part too. Therefore, a person coming from a family of individuals with the history of hypertension is likely to inherit it. Other include low birth weight and high levels of renin.

  1. Secondary Hypertension

An identifiable underlying problem causes this type of high blood pressure. Its treatment is dissimilar from essential hypertension. Many conditions can be an underlying cause for secondary hypertension.

Prescription Medication for Hypertension

Up until recently, that is, before CBD oil was introduced, only over the counter drugs existed for those suffering from hypertension.

Antihypertensive drugs help patients regulate their blood pressure. A reduction of high blood pressure by merely 5 mmHg can decrease the risk of heart attacks by 21%, strokes by 34%, while also decreasing the levels of mortality, dementia, and cardiac arrests.

Drugs such as beta blockers, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, among others are used to treat hypertension. However, patients typically take the drugs at the discretion of a physician since mixing up the meds can cause renal failure.

CBD Effects on Blood Pressure, and Hypertension


Many people use the terms “hypertension” and “high blood pressure” synonymously. This happens so frequently that many believe that they are, in fact, the same thing. Essentially, they are not wrong - but there is one major differentiating factor between the two.

High blood pressure is a term that is typically used to refer to a potential side-effect or symptom that is directly stemming from another ailment. Hypertension, however, refers to perpetual high blood pressure. It is possible to have hypertension for years without even realizing it.

Unfortunately, this does not make the damage to one’s heart any less real. Despite a lack of symptoms, high blood pressure could still be causing damage to your heart and blood vessels without you even knowing! As mentioned above, there are two different types of high blood pressure:

  • Primary hypertension: This type of hypertension is hard to pinpoint because the cause is usually unknown. This condition simply progresses over time.
  • Secondary hypertension: This is a form of high blood pressure that is linked to another condition. It typically has a sudden onset and has the potential to spike even higher than someone with primary hypertension. Some knowns conditions that are connected to hypertension are:
  1. Thyroid problems
  2. Kidney problems
  3. Sleep apnea
  4. Congenital issues
  5. Adrenal gland tumors
  6. Alcohol abuse
  7. Illegal narcotics and certain medications like pain relievers and birth control

Using CBD Oil to Reduce Blood Pressure to Normal

Evidence postulated in recent studies suggest that CBD oil may be beneficial in dealing with some of the cardiovascular ailments such as hypertension.

The studies show how CBD is a vasodilator which means it allows a healthy flow of blood in the vessels to normalize blood pressure. CBD potentially provides neuroprotective effects that protect the heart against any cardiovascular conditions and even stroke.

The studies also suggest that CBD can create normal heart rhythm after an ischemic attack and improve heart performance immediately after a heart attack.

Research indicates that the human body’s cannabinoid system produces endocannabinoids which can regulate blood pressure. However, they cannot solely provide the required effect. CBD also has anxiolytic and analgesic effects which help reduce resting blood pressure and hypertension connected to stress.

A test conducted on adult males discovered that CBD was able to reduce systolic pressure by an average of 5mmHg before and after stress. It was also able to reduce it by 6 mmHg during rest.

Practicing good health principles can prevent some of these problems. A proper diet alongside exercise can maintain the health status your body yearns for. There are two other ways that CBD may help reduce your blood pressure.

  • Inflammation

Eliminating any body inflammation is a common way of preventing high blood pressure. Over time, a person’s lifestyle may cause inward swelling of arteries’ walls which tighten blood’s passages.

Factors such as alcohol and drug abuse can increase this inflammation. CBD vasodilates the passages by relaxing and widening them. However, a patient still needs to lead a healthy lifestyle while using CBD oil.

  • Cardiac Contractility

Excessive work creates this other form of hypertension characterized by the heart pumping blood too fast. A neurotransmitter such as anandamide plays a critical role in the functioning of the heart.

CBD oil controls the re-uptake of vital heart neurotransmitters that control the cardiovascular system.

All the studies seem to agree that CBD reduces high blood pressure. The product, CBD oil, is, therefore, a more natural remedy for people with cardiovascular related problems which sometimes lead to death.

Remember: hypertension affects one in every three adults.

This illustrates its high prevalence rates in the world. It lacks any direct cause, but by several factors that cumulate throughout the years. Unhealthy lifestyles are perhaps the leading cause of high blood pressure.

Unhealthy foods, excess alcohol, stress, and drugs such as cigarettes. Industrialization and improvement of living standards witnessed across the world have had their fair share in causing hypertension.

People no longer exercise or participate in strenuous tasks that can unblock blood vessels. The existing medications for hypertension may potentially have harmful effects on the body. Organs commonly affected are the kidneys which have to sieve the leftover compounds in the meds. CBD oil provides a more natural solution for dealing with high blood pressure. However, it should be concurrently used whilst practicing a healthy lifestyle.
