Heart disease is caused by blood vessels hardening and plaque buildup over time which reduces cardiovascular function. Plaque can travel to smaller blood vessels where it causes a blockage.
Heart Disease Studies
- Cannabidiol, a nonpsychoactive Cannabis constituent, protects against myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury
- Is the cardiovascular system a therapeutic target for cannabidiol?
- A single dose of cannabidiol reduces blood pressure in healthy volunteers in a randomized crossover study
- CBD as an anti-arrhythmic, the role of the CB1 receptors
- Acute administration of CBD in vivo suppresses ischaemia-induced cardiac arrhythmias and reduces infarct size when given at reperfusion
- CBD attenuates cardiac dysfunction, oxidative stress, fibrosis, and inflammatory and cell death signaling pathways in diabetic cardiomyopathy
- The Effect of CBD on Ischemia/Reperfusion-Induced Ventricular Arrhythmias
- CBD protects against myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury
- Endocannabinoids acting at cannabinoid-1 receptors regulate cardiovascular function in hypertension
- Oleamide: A fatty acid amide signaling molecule in the cardiovascular system?
- Cannabidiol Protects against Doxorubicin-Induced Cardiomyopathy by Modulating Mitochondrial Function and Biogenesis
