This study is important because it shows in randomized trials that such a small dose of CBD can reduce blood pressure in healthy people. This is great evidence in the efficacy of CBD as a blood pressure medication.
BACKGROUND. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid used in multiple sclerosis and intractable epilepsy. Pre-clinical studies show CBD has numerous cardiovascular benefits, including a reduced blood pressure (BP) response to stress. The aim of this study was to investigate if CBD reduces BP in humans.
CONCLUSIONS. 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. Further research is required to establish whether CBD has a role in the treatment of cardiovascular disorders
